Soft Drinks Concentrate Market Overview
Soft drinks are beverages containing distilled water, sweetening agents, and flavoring agents. The sweetening agent used may be sugar, sweetener, high-fructose corn syrup, or any other sweet enhancing substance. Soft drinks may contain caffeine, coloring agents, preservatives, and other additives depending on the type the manufacturing industry is trying to produce.
For instance, a coloring agent is added to Coca-Cola's coke to give it the dark color seen.
Water accounts for about 80% of the entire content in soft drinks. The water used raises the weight of soft drinks, thereby causing an increase in transportation cost. To avoid or reduce this expense problem, the ingredients used in producing soft drinks are processed into concentrates.
Soft drinks concentrate on sugar, coloring agent, flavors, and maybe stabilizer or fruit concentrates with a little amount of purified water. In the food and beverage industry, the global soft drinks concentrate market has grown significantly due to the ease of operation and availability of soft drinks varieties.
As the trend towards the consumption of convenience food increases, the soft drinks concentrate market will witness tremendous growth during the forecast period and beyond
