Food Premix Market: Analysis of Growth, Trends Progress and Challenges

The global food premix market is estimated to register a CAGR of XX%, during 2017-2022 (the forecast period). The vitamins segment accounted for a substantial value share in 2016, owing to the continuous innovative customized premixes’ development by manufacturers in the global market.

The protein-nanoparticle combination boosts iron fortification. A mixture of whey protein nanofibrils and iron nanoparticles helps food and drink formulators in the reduction of iron-deficiency. The iron nanoparticles are safe to be absorbed by the body.

The Gambian government and the food & agriculture organization of the United Nations (FAO) aim to reduce malnutrition sustainably, and, in particular, the micronutrient deficiencies which remain, both, a major public health and development problem for the country. Kenya launched a national food fortification program which seeks to combat malnutrition. The method adopted by the government is to add vitamins and minerals to maize flour, edible oils and salt.

Market Dynamics

Malnutrition is a major factor driving the food premixes market. Even the healthy-looking people are malnourished because of their incomplete diet. These diets do not include the right micronutrients and such deficiencies can cause serious health issues. For instance, iron deficiency leads to critical problems during pregnancy and insufficient level of vitamin-A can result in poor vision, infections and skin problems. The food safety and standards authority of India (FSSAI) released a set of standards, henceforth, focusing on awareness & consensus-building. Many enterprises are expected to start adding premix of micronutrients to launch fortified foods. A large section of people, worldwide, suffers from iron deficiency, with women worse affected than men. The challenge, in blending nutrient premix in food products, is that bulk density and different particle sizes, which can lead to segregation.

The food fortification programs have witnessed limited success, owing to the lack of or weak regulations, suboptimal types and concentrations of fortificants, poor manufacturing practices and standards for fortified foods. Moreover, other reasons include the lack of or low-quality control/quality assurance systems and lack of demand generation.
