Increasing health concerns of consumers in the food industry

Over the past few years, consumer consciousness about healthier food products has been fueling the market for nutritive food products. Consumers today are becoming increasingly aware of the essential nutrients reburied by the body, and about the prevention of nutrition-related diseases and improved physical & mental well-being. The market for calcium propionate is driven by this rising demand for nutritional food and the increasing health consciousness among consumers. The preference of natural food additives over synthetic ones to eliminate health concerns also increases the demand for calcium propionate.

The food industry has begun using natural calcium propionate to make it as safe to consume as organic calcium salt of propionic acid, which is produced by fermentation with a selected strain of propionibacterium. The food industry also uses advanced technologies such as bacteriophages, MAP, and alternative preserving techniques combined with preservatives to maintain the quality and safety of food.

Stringent regulations

Stringent legislations and regulations with respect to food safety and shelf life have meant that processing industries are keen on getting the right formulation to present the best food product to the consumer, and preservatives play a pivotal role in this aspect. Local and regional regulations are required to be checked for allowed applications and dosage levels. The stringent regulations pertaining to quality and food safety are projected to restrain the global calcium propionate market growth. For instance, in the US, the usage level of propionic acid and propionates is 0.1% to 0.4%. According to federal regulations, the addition of calcium propionate to a food product raises the pH by approximately 0.1 to 0.5 pH units depending on the amount, pH, and type of product. Also, federal regulations limit the maximum level for flour, white bread, and rolls at 0.32% based on the weight of the flour; for whole wheat products at 0.38% based on the weight of the flour; and for cheese products at 0.3%. Such stringent monitoring and regulations restrain the market growth.

The food segment, by application, is estimated to account for the largest share in the calcium propionate market in 2018.

Calcium propionate is highly used in bread in the food industry; the growth of the bread industry, especially in developing economies, owing to high per capita bread consumption, fuels the demand for calcium propionate. Changes in lifestyles and increasing health consciousness of the population drive the demand for convenient low-calorie food products.
