Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is usage of natural gum. Due to an increase in health consciousness, consumers prefer clean label foods; clean label indicates that artificial ingredients have not been used in the product. Natural tapioca has certain issues like retrogradation and low water-holding capacity.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is growing demand in various developing countries. The demand for tapioca is rising in many parts of the world, particularly in developing countries like Brazil, Indonesia, and India. Tapioca is an important ingredient in many dishes and packaged foods sold in several countries. However, most consumers are unaware of the same. With an increase in the availability of gluten-free products in the market, the popularity of tapioca is rising.

Glycemic index scale is a numeric index, which indicates the effect of certain food products on a person's blood glucose level.
