Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Dietary Fiber Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global dietary fiber market: Archer Daniels Midland, Cargill, DuPont, Lonza Group, Roquette, and Tate & Lyle.

Other prominent vendors in the market are: Cosucra Groupe Warcoing, Fiberstar, Grain Millers, Kfsu, SAS Nexira, SunOpta, VDF Futureceuticals, and Z-Trim Holdings.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of latest trends in the market is growing popularity of cereal bars among sportspersons and young adults. The major consumers of cereal bars are sportspersons, athletes, and young adults. Healthy snacking is necessary for athletes to perform, and they are required to consume meal frequently throughout the day. Cereal bars are high in fiber and support appetite suppression, enhanced digestive health, and weight management. They are also fortified with omega 3, minerals, and vitamins to provide additional health benefits. Cereal bars have a long shelf life; high energy content, sugar, and proteins; low in carbohydrates; and are portable in nature. Almost every cereal bar vendor produces cereal bars specially designed for these groups of people. For instance, companies like Roquette produce dietary fibers that are necessary for the production of cereal bars. Many people consume cereal bars before a workout in the gym to obtain the energy required for the exercise. The energy nutrition bars are also a part of wartime food in army regiments.”

According to the report, one of the primary drivers in the market is Health benefits associated with dietary fibers. Dietary fibers are mainly found in vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and fruits and are predominantly known for their benefits such as relieving or preventing constipation. They also lower the risk of diabetes and heart disease and maintain a healthy weight.Dietary fibers are classified into two forms: soluble fiber and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber dissolves in water to form a gel-like material that assists in reducing the glucose and cholesterol levels. They are found in carrots, oats, peas, beans, psyllium, and barley. Insoluble fiber aids in the movement of materials through the digestive system and increases the stool bulk, helping people who have irregular stools or constipation. Whole-wheat flour, wheat bran, beans, and vegetables such as green beans and potatoes are good sources of insoluble fibers.

Further, the report states that one major challenge in the market is Stringent government regulations and guidelines. The vendors in the global dietary fiber market are required to comply with the stringent rules and regulations imposed by various authorities. These regulations pertain to permits, regulations for the entry of new players, residual management issues, and expiry dates for certain products that contain dietary fiber. The US FDA plays an important role in regulating the manufacture and distribution of products that contain dietary fibers. The US FDA has placed strict regulations on the types of foods in which dietary fiber can be used, the specific requirements for the health claims, and how the dietary fiber should be described on the labels of packaged foods.
