The market is having a wide range of colors for food products.”

According to the report, the global natural colorant and flavor market is heavily influenced by the consumer's preference regarding healthy and hygienic food. Consumers are seeking for products that are clean and have a green label on their pack, as they consider them safer and healthier. Consumers specifically prefer natural colored and flavored food products as they are more aware of the side-effects of chemically synthesized ingredients such as toxicity, allergies, and even cancer.

Further, the report states that the difficulties in the extraction process and the high cost of raw materials are the key reasons behind the expensive nature of natural colorants and flavors. Several advanced technologies are there in the market for the processing of natural ingredients. But only a few major vendors have these sophisticated techniques, which can maintain the high quality of food additives. Because of the high cost involved in the innovation of technology, natural colorant and flavor end products become costly.
