Healthier baked goods drive growth
The global dietary fiber market is witnessing tremendous growth due to the increasing demand for healthy and natural food products from health-conscious consumers.
High disposable incomes of consumers, increasing food-related problems, and rising awareness of the link between diet and food-related habits among consumers is driving growth of a predicted 16% in the dietary fibre market. According to a new report people are much more concerned about their diet and the quality of food they consume, and so they are trying to avoid eating unhealthy and fast foods.
Daily intake recommendations for the consumption of dietary fiber products, which help reduce obesity, maintain optimum blood sugar levels, and help consumers effectively manage their energy levels, will significantly benefit the bakery industry. It is expected to emerge as the fastest growing sector in dietary fiber market over the next 4 years. The increasing demand for natural bakery products that contain ingredients such as fiber and whole grains is expected to fuel the demand for bakery products. This will increase the demand for bakery products, which will help the dietary fiber markets in developed countries slow the market saturation.
