Key Takeaways from the Maltodextrin Market Study

  • Among various application segments, the usage of maltodextrin in the food and beverage industry is most common. Owing to the increasing health awareness and growing preference for processed food/diet with low fat, sugar, salt and high protein content, the demand for maltodextrin has remained stable in the food & beverages industry.
  • Technological advancements in the production of maltodextrin encapsulated products, properties such as high-temperature tolerance, low moisture, high solubility, and bland flavor make maltodextrin a preferred wall material for encapsulation of various fats, oils and food acids.            
  • Since there is a high production of maltodextrin from corn starch, leading manufacturers are now focusing on improving their efforts to find other sources of maltodextrin in order to make sure the product is readily available to its target customers in the required quantity.
  • Manufacturers are adopting innovative technologies in the product offering to meet consumers' demands. Manufacturers with their brand names are introducing a variety of maltodextrin that can be utilized across diverse industries for various purposes. Tate & Lyle provides MALTOSWEET ® which is a combination of maltodextrins and Dried Glucose Syrups that is used in various food products.
  • The  use of the internet, blogs and social media to access available information about various chemicals and ingredients is increasing. It is a consumer-driven trend since they are getting increasingly worried about the effects of ingredients present in food and cosmetic products. This is  changing a consumer’s buying pattern and behaviour. Which positively affect the growing demand of natural ingredients in the food and beverage industry.

The increasing demand for GMO-free starches in baby food and infant formula due to consumers’ inclination towards organic and natural food for their kids is creating growth opportunities for the market. Major players in the U.S. baby and infant formula market such Abbott, Nestlé, and Mead Johnson Nutrition were repeatedly petitioned to remove GMO ingredients from their respective baby food products. This showcases the growing demand of maltodextrin in baby food product as it is considered to be a good source of energy for baby. It also helps in balance intestinal osmolarity which may get altered by intestinal disorders in infants. Therefore this factor is anticipated to drive the maltodextrin market over the forecast period.

“Over the past few years an increasing number of consumers are steadily looking for food with healthier, trustworthy, and plant-based ingredients. This has made manufacturers shift towards the natural ingredients to cater to the growing demand. Impelled by the scenario, key players are focusing on research and development to find another natural source for maltodextrin.” says an FMI analyst.
