Global Flavor Enhancer Market Outlook-

Of the main global region, the flavor enhancers market is large in North America, followed by Asia Pacific and Western Europe. The North America and Europe contributes over half of the worldwide consumption of flavor enhancer market. Flavor enhancer in powdered form is most commonly used as it is easier to use as compared to that of liquid and semi liquid form hence it accounts the largest share in the flavor enhancer market. There is a growing demand for processed food in Asia Pacific region which is likely to surpass the global flavor enhancer market. Latin America respondents exceed the global average for avoiding saturated fats and carbohydrates. Decrease in food intake due to numerous sensory, metabolic and pharmacologic factors and lower rates of nutrient absorption are observed which led to new innovation and technology in global flavor enhancer market which ultimately increase flavor enhancer market growth. Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is most commonly used as flavor enhancer in savory products.

Salt as a natural flavor enhancer has its own negative effect when consumed in large quantities. Large consumption of salt contribute to heart disease and high blood pressure. Due to this reason, in the EU-Funded Taste Project, the researchers deduced that “Brown Algae” can be used as a substitute of salt which can reduce salt content of industrially processed foods. In July 2016, PLT Health Solutions launched PhytoShield Flavor Enhancer that improves product quality and delivers antimicrobial property which led to longer shelf life of the flavor enhancer product.
