Increasing end use industry to meet the growing demand for processed food is propelling the growth of food ingredients market. Moreover, food ingredients are largely used in bakery, dairy, confectionery, meat & sea food, convenience food and functional food.

Food ingredients are used to preserve, increase flavor, blend, color, and thicken and to maintain nutrition. For instance salt is used to preserve meats & fish, sugar to preserve fruits, vinegar solution or citric acid to preserve pickle, also herbs & spices to enhance flavor. Demand for natural food ingredients is increasing due to lower side effects and favorable regulations. Natural food ingredients are extracted from natural sources such as corn & soybeans to maintain the consistency of food, beet powder to provide color in food, and ascorbic acid or vitamin c to increase the self-life of pickle.

Synthetic food ingredients are used to increase the self-life of food, for instance, to enhance the self-life of wine ethanol is used.

Globalization has led to the world becoming a smaller place, characterized by increasing trade activities, including in the food and beverages sector. This has led to rampant increase in import and export of food items across region, so to maintain the quality of food and establish commercially, the self-life of food is need to be enhanced. Europe is the second largest market for food ingredients due to increasing demand for healthier alternative to regular food.
