Instant coffee is coffee powder that is produced by coffee beans that have been brewed at a higher ratio of coffee to water as compared to the regular coffee. In the production of instant coffee, there are two methods for drying coffee including spray drying and freeze-drying. In spray drying method, a spray device is used, in order to dry the coffee extract. The device transfers the hot air into the container and converts the product into fine powder. Further, in freeze drying method, the coffee extract is freeze at approximately -40 degree Celsius and then, the ice particles are treated separately in evaporation and drying chambers to produce instant coffee flakes.
Convenience is the major factor propelling growth of the instant coffee market, as it is easy to prepare as compared to fresh coffee. The fast paced lifestyles of consumers is fuelling demand for convenient food products, which in turn, is supporting market growth. Furthermore, the longer shelf life of instant coffee as compared to the bean or ground coffee, owing to its powdered texture, is another factor, aiding in the growth of the market. Furthermore, coffee contains various nutrients, such as lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins, amino acids, phenolic compounds, alkaloids and minerals. Polyphenols in coffee, works as an antioxidants which fight against free radicals. Owing to the rising awareness regarding these health benefits, there is a growing demand for coffee worldwide. For instance, according to the International Coffee Organization (ICO), world coffee consumption, had increased from 148,891 thousand bags (60 kg) during 2013-2014 to 157,382 thousand bags (60 kg) during 2016-2017, witnessing a CAGR of 1.9%. Thus, the rising consumption of the coffee, is anticipated to support the global growth of instant coffee market, as well.
However, the high content of acrylamide in the instant coffee as compared to the fresh coffee is hindering market growth. Acrylamide or acrylic amide is an odorless, white, crystal compound with chemical formula C3H5NO and is produced in the food products, when sugars and amino acids are heated above 120 degree Celsius. Acrylamide is neurotoxic and can damage peripheral and central nervous system (PNS and CNS) in both humans and animals.
