Erythrosine Market: Market Dynamics
Consumer Inclination towards Processed Foods to Foster Growth
Packaged and processed foods are becoming a vital aspect of today’s busy, on-the-go consumers, as they support their fast-paced lifestyles. Packaged and processed foods require effective preservation and stronger shelf appeal to entice consumers. Consumer inclination towards processed foods has shifted the food manufacturers towards synthetic food colorants that allow preservation for a longer period of time, including erythrosine.
As packaged and processed food consumption continues to rise, the application of synthetic food colorants such as erythrosine is likely to gain major impetus, supporting the growth of the erythrosine market.
Reluctance for Synthetic Additives to Hamper Sales
Although synthetic additives are gaining widespread applicability across a plethora of industries owing to its effective preservation for a longer time and cost-effectiveness over natural dyes, the growing positive perception associated to natural colorants and dyes is expected to hinder the sales of erythrosine. Demand for natural colorants and additives are witnessing a major growth on account of the rapid gravitation towards the health and wellness trend, and shift towards food products having naturally derived ingredients.
Health Adversities to Impact Adoption
Depending on its long term and short term utilization, erythrosine has potential carcinogic and mutagenic effects. Although it is used as a colorant alternative, the health adversaries of erythrosine have resulted in prohibition of the dye in certain regions. For instance, Erythrosine is banned in the US but is legal in Brazil and other countries. As health remains a top priority, it could hinder the adoption of erythrosine.
