Market Drivers: Clean Label: A clear trend across global food market

Increasing consumption of healthy food products among modern consumers has led to increasing interest in the origin of the ingredients used to produce these products. Consumers prefer natural and clean-label flavors and ingredients as they are constantly looking for ‘natural’ nutrition and are opting for products that incorporate inherently natural, fresh, wholesome, and balanced nutrition. They largely perceive “clean label” as having a natural flavor and natural color.

The growing trend toward clean-label products, which is slowly becoming a requisite across the globe, is offering growth opportunities to the food manufacturers to create new formulations and new products to cater to the rising consumer demand for healthier food products.

Market Restraints: Adverse effects of excess spice consumption

The spices and seasonings segment has large-scale applications in various food sectors. However, consumption of spices in excess proved to affect one’s health negatively. Arguably, the most common side effect of spicy food deals with one’s digestion system. Heartburn or acid reflux occurs when stomach acid goes back up into the esophagus, causing a burning sensation in one’s chest portion. This acidity can be triggered by spicy foods containing capsaicin, which also slows down your digestion rate and increases the risk of heartburn developing.

Organic spices are preferred as the demand for natural inputs increases.

Organic spices are wholesome, non-GMO, and free of insecticides and pesticides. Organics spices are artificially enhanced to be visually appealing. Since organic species are grown without any usage of harmful chemicals to maintain the plant’s phytonutrients properly, the original flavor of spices is preserved. Also, with changing trends in food and a growing interest in the beneficial natural properties of food, consumers take comfort in knowing that their food comes from farms that engage in natural farming practices.
