Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is high demand for multigrain bread flour. Multigrain bread is made up of several types of grains such as barley, flax, millets, and oats. It also includes edible seeds such as flaxseed, quinoa, sunflower seeds, and rye. Multigrain bread includes mainly dietary fibers; protein; vitamins B1, B2, and B3; and folic acid.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is rise in demand for ready-to-eat products. Urbanization has prompted extensive changes in the lifestyle and dietary habits of consumers worldwide. There has been a significant growth in the consumption of processed food products. However, consumers are becoming more conscious about their health and fitness and paying more attention to the nutritional content of the food they eat. Ready-to-eat products are becoming increasingly popular among consumers as they save time and effort and provide consistency in taste.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is contamination and product recall. Contamination issues are generally seen in products exported to global markets. Because of contamination issues, consumers may lose confidence in the products and stop purchasing them. Most vendors purchase or source bread flour from third-party suppliers. Improper handling of the raw material supplies may adversely affect the safety and quality of bread flour products. It is important for food manufacturers to comply with the regulations set by governments for bread flour items.
