Citrus Fiber Market

Citrus fiber, also known as citrus pulp or citrus peel fiber, is a natural dietary fiber formed from citrus fruit waste byproducts, typically orange, lemon, and other citrus fruit peels. Because of its functional qualities, it is an important ingredient in the food sector. Citrus fiber is high in both soluble and insoluble fiber, and it has a variety of health benefits, including enhanced digestive health, lower cholesterol levels, and blood sugar management. It is commonly used as a thickener, stabilizer, and texturizer in a variety of food products such as sauces, dressings, baked goods, and meat products to improve texture, moisture retention, and shelf life. Furthermore, its propensity to absorb and retain water makes it a beneficial element in the formulation of low-fat and low-calorie foods.

Citrus fibers offer numerous health benefits and prevention of some serious diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), in 2019, around 463 million people, aged between 20 to 79 years, were suffering from diabetes and this number is estimated to rise to 700 million by 2045. Moreover, around 374 million adults have higher chances of developing type 2 diabetes. This is a major factor that boosts the Citrus Fiber Market Demand for citrus fiber-based foods among the global population. Citrus fibers also help in improving heart health, curing irritable bowel syndrome, maintaining weight, boosting immunity, and regulating blood sugar levels. All these benefits are expected to foster the consumption of citrus fibers, which drives the global citrus fiber market growth.

The global citrus fiber market is experiencing significant growth, and is expected to grow considerably in next few years owing to the intensifying need for naturally derived dietary fibers to prevent various diseases. Citrus fiber is a mixture of soluble and insoluble fiber that is derived from pulp or peel or fruit. This is high in antioxidants and serves as dietary fiber. Insoluble citrus fiber contains bioactive compounds, carotene, polyphenols, and notable flavonoids that increase its demand in the processed food industry. It is one of the nutritional fibers which provide many health benefits such as lower risk of obesity, coronary heart disease, stroke, various gastrointestinal (GI) diseases, hypertension, and diabetes. Citrus fiber extracted from orange peel contains a considerable amount of insoluble dietary fiber. It has many health benefits including reducing adsorption of glucose, and starch digestion.

Usage of citrus fiber is gaining traction among processed and packaged food manufacturers due to several functional advantages, which influence the final products. Citrus fibers are neutral in flavor, taste, and fragrance and their inclusion enhances finished product texture and aroma. In certain cases, adding citrus fiber to foods like meat and cheese is cost-effective, as it is possible to reduce the cost of formulating by replacing expensive ingredients with citrus fibers. In addition, citrus fiber-added refined food is easier to cook.

Recent years of competition for natural food ingredients in processed food items have also increased demand for citrus fiber. Producers prefer to include citrus fibers in different food items, as it enables them to go for a clean label without worrying about the e-number. The growing health awareness among people is also helping the citrus fiber market to remain profitable.

Busy and hectic lifestyle of consumers is a major factor that boosts demand for fiber supplements across the globe. Presently, people often do not get enough time to properly take care of their diet, owing to their hectic schedule. This results in less intake of fiber, which gives rise to various diseases related to intestine, blood sugar, obesity, and heart. Adequate amount of fiber consumption not only prevents these health risks but also helps to build strong immunity. Therefore, to fulfil necessary requirements of dietary fiber, consumers opt for fiber supplements. This is one of the key factors that propels demand for fiber supplements among the global population, hence, propels growth of the citrus fibers market.
