Consumption of food and beverages containing pectin can help in weight loss, blood sugar control, and aid in heart health. Another advantage of using pectin powder is that it gives edible and drinkable goods more consistency and viscosity. Hydrocolloids' adhesive properties present in pectin powder allow the food product to naturally congeal its constituent ingredients. Given its impressive nutrient profile, pectin and its derivatives fit right in.

“Consumer inclination towards natural ingredients in response to the rising lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and obesity has been the key factor facilitating growth in the pectin powder market.

Non-Modified Convenience Ingredient Gaining Traction

As a result of the growing health problem among people around the world, health benefits have become primary motivators for the consumption of any food and beverage items. This is followed by taste and price. As a result, customers are taking precautionary steps when it comes to the products they use. Non-GMO has become a key trend in the food sector. Consumers in North America, Europe, South Asia, and Oceania are searching for labels on products that state they are non-GMO. When shopping for foods and drinks in the United States, 30% of shoppers opt for the Non-GMO label, which is higher than the organic label, which is used by just 28% of shoppers.

Who is winning?
