Dietary fibers, referred to as roughage, present in food items are derived mainly from plant food. These fibers assist in waste movement inside the body, reduce the risk of diabetes and heart diseases by lowering blood sugar levels and cholesterol, and maintain body weight.
Increase in health and diet concerns among consumers, rise in demand for bread, which possesses dietary fibers to increase its shelf life, and rise in disposable income drive the growth of this industry. However, excessive content of dietary fibers in the diet can lead to diarrhea, reduced mineral absorption, and removal of good cholesterol, thus restraining the market. Growth is further impeded by strict regulations imposed by the FDA, such as the announcement regarding a change of definition of dietary fibers in the near future, which would result in recalling the products available in market for examination and reassessment. There are major opportunities for market growth of dietary fibers. Physiochemical properties of fibers can be manipulated by certain thermal, chemical, and mechanical treatments to improve their functionality, which is expected to present opportunities for growth. Moreover, waste products, such as hulls and peanut skin, can be utilized to create dietary fibers, thus boosting the market growth during the forecast period.
The global dietary fibers market is segmented based on source, type, end use, processing treatment, and geography. Based on source, it is divided into plant food (oat, wheat, corn, rice, and barley) and waste products (wheat straw, hulls, peanut skins, and vegetable & fruit waste). Based on type, it is bifurcated into soluble (pectin, gums, and mucilage) and insoluble (cellulose, hemi-cellulose, lignin, and resistant starch). End use of the dietary fibers include weight management, waste movement, cholesterol management, and sugar management. Based on processing treatment, the market is categorized into extrusion cooking, canning, grinding, boiling, and frying. Geographically, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
Key players operating in the global dietary fibers market include Ingredion Inc. (Corn Products International), Grain Processing Corporation, Grain Millers Inc., Lonza Group Ltd, KFSU Ltd, Novus International Inc., Roquette Freres S.A., E.I Dupont De Nemours & Company, and Sas Nexira Inc.
