Cheese powder is dehydrated cheese, which is manufactured and marketed in different types such as cheddar, parmesan, mozzarella, and others. The most common commercial procedure to prepare cheese powder includes melting of fresh cheese, followed by spraying it through a hot dryer to get thick powder. Cheese powder offers a unique combination of taste, flavor, functionality, and convenience in products such as sauces, dips and dressings, snacks, and ready-to-eat meals. Cheese powder is gaining popularity among consumers due to its longer shelf life and ease of handling and storage as compared to cheese. 

Key factors such as rapidly growing processed food industries and shifting consumer preference towards convenience food play major role in growth of global cheese powder market. However, strict and changing government regulations imposed on use of food ingredients is a key challenge for manufacturers, which is restraining growth of the global cheese powder market. For instance, 21CFR133.113 by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on cheddar cheese and related products. Under this regulation, if pasteurized dairy ingredients are used then the phenol equivalent value of 0.25 gram of cheddar cheese should not more than 3 micrograms. Rising prevalence of diabetes, heart diseases and obesity are also factors restraining growth of global cheese powder market over the forecast period.

  • Middle East imports most of the food products from other regions due to limited arable land and water. Furthermore, regional government authorities in this region has taken bold initiatives to lower rate of obesity. In 2016, the Israel Ministry of Health launched a policy to promote healthy eating and set up a committee to define the required labeling legislation. Healthy nutrition standards are forcing food manufacturers and importers to affix red labels on foods that exceed maximum levels of sodium, sugar or saturated fats. Such activities are projected to restrain growth of cheese powder market in Middle East.
