A Shift toward Convenience and Processed Food Consumption to Drive the Global Food Sweetener Market
Major factors driving the expansion of the global food sweetener market are the rising demand for convenience and processed goods, such as sweet/sugar-based ready-to-eat foods, ready-to-drink beverages, snacks, and frozen dinners. The developed and developing nations are witnessing a rise in demand for processed and packaged food, which may spike the demand for food packaging and sugar processing solutions, boosting the need for high-fructose corn syrup in beverage and food applications worldwide.
HFCS helps keep foods fresh, reduces the freezing point, supports moisture in bran cereals and breakfast bars, enhances fruit and spice flavors, promotes surface browning, and provides fermentability and sweetening qualities. Overall, the enormous demand for food has prompted the entire value chain to open up worldwide markets for HFCS and new introductions from international businesses.

Stevia-Based Antioxidant Food and Beverages to Open New Market Opportunities

Pure Circle, the world's biggest producer of Stevia, has introduced a stevia antioxidant component suitable for health and wellness food products. The business has created a novel extraction and purification procedure for the stevia antioxidant component. Due to the new stevia antioxidant, consumers can select from a variety of plant-based stevia compounds, which will expand the company's range beyond taste modifiers and sweeteners.
Many other major stevia businesses are concentrating their efforts on research and development to improve the efficiency of generating stevia-based food and beverage ingredients, including antioxidants, fibers, and protein which provide lucrative opportunities for the global food sweetener market.
