Food Technology and Functional Ingredientマガジンによると、世界の機能性食品／ニュートラシューティカル製品の売上は1995年の300億米ドルから1,000億米ドル超になると予測されています。米国がその3分の1の330億米ドルを占めています。健康食品のニーズの高まりが成長を加速させています。消費者は、病気を管理するには薬よりも健康な食習慣であることを認識しつつあります。
This report provides summaries of current worldwide research, technology developments in carbohydrates for health, nutrition and functional areas that are essential part of food systems to offer many benefits to offer solutions in health benefits and functional attributes. This report offers a tool and resource that can enhance the reading, thought process along with our insights for today' s overloaded technical, commercial and support management functions. This is our 3rd report in the Frontiers in Carbohydrates and we plan to issue series of similar reports each year to proactively offer areas of targeted research in selected areas; we may evolve this document as we move forward depending on your feedback and serve the changing needs of carbohydrates. This presents our extensive research with comprehensive experience and insights of our associates and me who have spent many years in the carbohydrates research, processing and marketing. Besides we stay on the cutting edge by our continuous scan of carbohydrates research and developments worldwide.
Needs of functional foods with health implications (some with - claims that may be substantiated) will come from new markets and the segments driven by convenience, health and obesity trends in the United States and around the world. One of the best known functional food categories is dietary fibers (DF) with multitude of health benefits including gut health, cholesterol reduction, heart disease and diabetes among many.
According to Food Technology and Functional Ingredient magazines, global sale of functional/nutraceuticals products is approaching >$ 100 billion in sales up from 30 billion in 1995. Us accounts for about 33 billion dollars or 1/3 of the global values. Growth is accelerating because of economic and demand of health foods. Consumers are realizing that healthy eating habit is better way to manage illness than medication, and a crossover between foods, fortification and dietary supplements is underway.
Per Nutritional Outlook December 2010, U.S. digestive-health category is currently valued at $265.9 million and will grow to $495.3 million by 2015 - a 13.2% growth, predicts a new MarketsandMarkets report. In particular, prebiotics and probiotics are growing at double-digit rates. The enzyme market is also expanding, albeit at a slower rate. U.S. consumers are still gaining awareness of probiotics, although awareness is growing. U.S. consumption of gut-health products is largely focused on dietary supplements, while in Europe, where awareness is higher, probiotics are often consumed through functional foods such as dairy and other food and beverage products.
In this report we present the most recent activities in research and technologies of critical nutrition and functional carbohydrates of selected areas along with selected patents 2003 to 2010. We also present brief analysis of patent trends, which has most number of patents, what years and segments.
