Encapsulated Citric Acid Market Outlook
Encapsulated citric acid is citric acid being encapsulated in a matrix such as cellulose, maltodextrin, hydrogenated vegetable oil, non-hydrogenated vegetable oil, etc. This is used in the food products to enhance and extend the flavour in the food products. The encapsulated citric acid is released in the food product only after heating and reaching a certain temperature. This is so that the flavor does not get released during mixing. Also, the encapsulated citric acid is used as a starter culture for the meat products.
The encapsulated citric acid with polymer coating is being used in hydraulic fracturing and is only used in this industry. The encapsulated citric acid that is coated with other matrices is being used in the food and beverage industry. It is also being used in the foodservice industry and is also available for sale in the retail market.
Various Advantages Offered by the Encapsulated Citric Acid in F&B Industry Has Resulted in its Increased Usage the Food Products
The encapsulated citric acid is being used in various types of food products and beverages.
The food products that the encapsulated citric acid is being used in are bakery products, meat products, snacks, confectioneries, instant food premixes, etc. This vast use of the encapsulated citric acid is due to the various benefits it offers to the food products. It controls undesired reactions, protects against sugar inversion and increases the shelf stability of the product it is being used in and an extended flavour release. These benefits have resulted in the food processing manufacturers trying to incorporate the encapsulated citric acid in food products that they can find application in. Thus, the demand of the encapsulated food products is expected to increase.
Encapsulated Citric Acid Market: Regional Analysis
The use of encapsulated citric acid in most of the food products has increased its overall demand in the F&B sector. The demand for the encapsulated citric acid in the U.S. is higher as it is being used mostly in meat products in the industries as well as in the households and HoReCa. The demand for encapsulated citric acid will increase in South Asia as the food and beverage industry is developing in these countries. Also, the Middle East and Africa are expected to have a high growth rate due to the increasing consumption of convenience food in these countries.
