Global Lactose-free Food Market 2017-2021

Global Lactose-free Food Market 2017-2021

About Lactose-free food

Lactose is the natural sugar present in milk or milk products. Lactase is an enzyme that helps in the digestion of lactose. Therefore, deficiency of lactase leads to the accumulation of lactose in the body, which causes gas, cramps, bloating, nausea, and diarrhea. The foods that do not contain lactose are termed as lactose-free food products.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global lactose-free food market to grow at a CAGR of 11.10% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Lactose-free food Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global lactose-free food market: Arla Foods, McNeil Nutritionals, OMIRA Oberland-Milchverwertung (OMIRA), Parmalat, and Valio.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alpro, Amy's Kitchen, Barry Callebaut, Cargill, Chr. Hansen, Daiya Foods, Dean Foods, Edlong Dairy Technologies, Emmi, Fonterra, Galaxy Nutritional Foods, General Mills, Green Valley Organics, HP Hood, Land O Lakes, Murray Goulburn, TINE Laktosefri, and WhiteWave Foods.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is introduction of lactose-free ice-creams. Food allergies, like lactose intolerance, usually result in bloating, improper digestion, and related concerns. With an increase in the number of people with lactose intolerance across the globe, many manufacturers have started formulating lactose-free food products like ice-creams.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is rising levels of lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance is an inability of the body to digest a significant amount of lactose present in milk and dairy products. Some ethnic groups are more lactose intolerant than others. The demand for lactose-free food products is driven by the increasing incidences of food allergies and lactose intolerances.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high price of lactose-free products. Although lactose-free foods are healthy alternatives for people with lactose intolerance and celiac disease, the high price of these foods is a major concern among consumers. One of the major factors for the high pricing is the high production costs. Removing lactose from dairy products is an expensive process, thereby increasing the cost of the final products.
