High Nutritional Value of Functional Foods to Spike Uptake
The popularity of fortified food and beverages has been steadily climbing in recent years, mainly due to the hectic and unhealthy lifestyles people are leading in urban areas. As a result, there is a growing demand for nutrition-rich food and beverage items fueled by rising health and wellness concerns. Functional foods have emerged as an attractive option for many consumers, given their wide-ranging and long-term benefits.
For example, functional foods and beverages fortified with omega-3 fatty acids can boost brain function, secure heart health, and reduce inflammation. The benefits of functional foods are not limited to just chronic and lifestyle-based disorders; they have proven efficacy in tackling the effects of under-nourishment too. For example, the National Institutes of Health reported that the introduction of wheat flour fortified with iron in Jordan led to 50% reduction in the incidence of iron deficiency anemia among children.
Evolving Lifestyles in Asia-Pacific to Aid the Region Register Impressive CAGR
Asia-Pacific is slated to dominate the functional food and beverages market share and grow at a CAGR of 9.20% during the forecast period. The central reason for this rise is the rapidly changing lifestyles of people that are increasing the prevalence of chronic conditions in the region. An example of this is the increasing consumption of fast or “junk” food. Thus, there is a surging demand for nutritional foods as people are getting more health conscious, especially in India. In addition to foodstuffs, there is also a high demand for functional hydration, particularly in tropical countries where water loss from the body is high. After Asia-Pacific, North America is expected to be the second-largest region for this market, anticipated to register a CAGR of 7.06% in the forthcoming years.
