Rising Demand for Natural Ingredients
A significant number of consumers have gained interest toward purchasing clean label goods, which offer a wide scope for naturally sourced ingredients, hence propelling the demand for natural food flavors. As a result, the natural flavor market witnessed the highest growth rate accounting for USD 5.2 billion in 2018. In order to address the growing demand for natural flavors, manufacturers are offering products free from artificial flavorings and gradually shifting toward natural ingredients. Continuing interest in foods with exotic or ethnic flavors is one of the key factors driving the demand for natural flavor blends. In recent years, artificial flavorings, such as benzophenone, ethyl acrylate, pyridine, and styrene, are identified as carcinogens, and thus, are being replaced by natural flavorings across the global market.
