Key Takeaways from the Nutritional Yeast Market Study
- Governmental and para-governmental authorities in collaboration with prominent manufacturers in the nutritional yeast market are conducting extensive research and development activities to aid sustainable development. Global research and development spending has reached a record of US$ 1.7 trillion, out of which 80% is accounted by 10 countries. The United States, Germany, Canada, Japan, China, France, India, and the United Kingdom are some of the countries with high research and development spending. For instance, Lallemand research and development has launched an innovative strain of yeast YANG, derived from the association of two different strains of yeast, S. cerevisiae and C. jadinii, in specific fractions. This innovative strain is used as an animal feed ingredient to enhance immune response.
- Inactive dried nutritional yeast can be used as an effective ingredient in animal feed to boost nutritional content. Ready availability of inactive dried nutritional yeast and the growing awareness regarding the benefits of inactive dried nutritional yeast as an animal feed ingredient support growth of the global nutritional yeast market.
- Consumers perceive organic products as safer and healthier when compared to traditionally and conventionally manufactured products. This encourages manufacturers to expand their product portfolio to include certified organic offerings, which is anticipated to help them strengthen their market positions. Production of organic nutritional yeast requires use of organic molasses, organic grains, and plant-derived ingredients as a source of sugar, nitrogen, and other key ingredients. While organically produced nutritional yeast occupies a niche percentile in the current global market scenario, demand for these products is expected to grow, attributable to increasing market penetration in Europe and North America, where the organic trend is gaining significant momentum.
Social media sites such as Instagram and Twitter are creating a favourable perception about nutritional yeast products. Food bloggers are sharing new recipes using nutritional yeast. As nutritional yeast has a cheesy taste and is both a vegan and gluten-free ingredient, it is gaining traction among consumers on social networking sites. Rapidly increasing use of smart phones and smart gadgets in untapped areas influences consumers in these regions subsequently creating awareness about benefits of using nutritional yeast in food preparation. The demand for gluten-free food products is rising in the global food and beverages market, which is attributable to rising prevalence of celiac disease on a global scale. The consumption of organic, salt-free, vegan and plant-based protein products is increasing across the globe. The use of inactive dried nutritional yeast is increasing in animal feed. As a result of these factors, the demand for nutritional yeast is increasing rapidly.
“The increasing application of nutritional yeast in various segment such as food & beverage, dietary supplements, animal feed, and personal care drives the market. Increasing focus on animal welfare has spurred vegan population. This in turn drives the nutritional yeast market,” says an FMI analyst.
