Global Food Stabilizers Market
About Food Stabilizers
Food stabilizers are added to stabilize and improve the texture, prevent crystallization (sugar and ice), stabilize foams and emulsions, reduce the stickiness of icings on baked products, and to retain moisture and flavor of food products.
Polysaccharide gum, arabic gum, and guar gum are the most commonly used stabilizers and thickeners. Gelatin is another commonly used non-carbohydrate stabilizer obtained from several animal-by products.
Stabilizers are hydrophilic and can be dispersed in particular solutions as colloids. They swell in water, thickening the food. Stabilizers are commonly used in the preparation of gravies, cake toppings, pie fillings, jellies, chocolate milk drinks, puddings, and dressings for salads.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Increasing demand for functional foods, convenience foods, and baked goods, along with the continuously changing lifestyle, have amplified the demand for baked products in China and other developing economies in APAC.”
According to the report, urbanization and the rise in the population of working women in developing economies, including India and China are driving the need for convenience foods. Though many countries, including China are dominated by fresh markets, the ease and convenience of frozen and canned food provides numerous opportunities for growth.
Further, the report states that the food stabilizers market in China has reached saturation, and this has led to ripple effects globally. China relies on its export business and the decline in the demand for food stabilizers from overseas markets has affected the market growth.
