Market Overview

Lactose-Free Butter Market Outlook

Lactose-free butter is the butter that either contains very less or no lactose. Cream, which is lactose-free, or enzymatically converting butter into lactose-free is used for obtaining lactose-free butter. Lactose-free butter is mostly used for retail use but many manufacturers are producing lactose-free butter for the consumers that are using lactose-free butter. Also, many foodservice operators in North America and Europe have shifted to lactose-free butter in the bakery sector due to the increasing vegan and lactose-intolerant population.

Consumers have also developed a new trend in the food industry. The consumers require clean-label food nowadays, which includes organic, gluten-free, Non-GMO, etc. Ingredients manufacturers are fulfilling this demand by providing the required ingredient. Thus, few of the manufacturers have started manufacturing organic lactose-free butter using organic cream as the source.

Vegan Consumers are Increasing and So Is the Demand for Lactose-free Products

Due to lactose intolerance among the consumers, the demand for lactose-free butter such as lactose-free milk and lactose-free butter has been high. However, the demand for lactose-free butter has recently risen due to the rising vegan population. These vegan consumers are willing to pay an additional price for products that offers all the certifications along with easy availability.

Manufacturers of lactose-free butter are fulfilling the demand of low-fat butter along with the lactose-free claim as well. The lactose-free butter is available only in regular flavour but with the rising demand, it is expected that the manufacturers will add other flavours. Also, the packaging size and type are standard for the lactose-free butter. However, in the upcoming years, innovative packaging is expected to be used for packing lactose-free butter.

Lactose-Free Butter Market: Regional Analysis

Up to 50 million Americans are lactose intolerant and this has increased the demand of the lactose-free butter in North America. Whereas this is not the case in the Asian countries especially in South Asia. The consumers in South Asia have less awareness about the lactose intolerance resulting in the demand of the lactose-free butter not being very high. Besides, the number of vegan population in these regions are less as compared to the vegan population in North America and Europe. However, the demand for lactose-free butter is expected to increase in the upcoming years in South Asia owing to the increasing food and beverages market and urbanization increasing.

The major manufacturer of the lactose-free butter has been Green Valley Creamery which distributed lactose-free butter in the U.S. which was also organic in mature. But due to unavailability of the organic cream in high proportions, the company discontinued the manufacturing of the lactose-free butter for the time being. However, it is expected to start manufacturing in the next few months after they receive a consistent source for organic cream.
