Probiotic Ingredients Market in Americas 2017-2021
About Probiotic Ingredients
Probiotic substances contain live bacteria that are beneficial for human health. These bacteria are often called beneficial bacteria as they keep the gut healthy. These are naturally found in the human body. However, due to several reasons such as food habits, the count decreases, leading to various health problems. To increase or maintain a proper count, a person must ingest such live bacteria through diet. Certain food products, beverages, and supplements contain probiotics. Owing to the increased focus on digestive health, consumers are looking for food products that contain probiotics. Hence, food and beverage manufacturers, dietary supplement manufacturers, and others fortify their products with probiotic ingredients. Probiotic ingredients contain probiotic strains that can be used in various applications. Considering the demand for probiotics, several manufacturers develop probiotic ingredients that can be used for various applications.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing awareness about the benefits of probiotics. Beneficial intestinal bacteria maintain the wellness of the human gut. There are billions of beneficial bacteria in the human intestine. However, sometimes, the bacterial colony count decreases due to several reasons, which is more likely to affect the digestive system. Hence, it is highly important to maintain an optimum count of beneficial bacteria in the gut. To maintain the gut microflora, probiotics or beneficial bacteria must be administered through various food sources.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Production difficulties and instability of probiotic strain. The production of probiotic culture is a complicated process, which involves fermentation, concentration, and lyophilization. The quality and viability of probiotic strain depend on the CFU. The viability of strain should be ensured before it is formulated. This is because of the fact that due to high compression, heat, and mixing, the count of active probiotic cells in the lyophilized bacteria decreases. This is a major challenge for the probiotic ingredient manufacturers.
