According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Health benefits of sesame seeds. Urbanization and consumerism trends have led to extensive changes in consumer lifestyles and a shift toward healthy eatables. Sesame seeds are one of the most popular nutritious superfoods, as they contain a high amount of protein; fiber; oil; omega-6 fatty acids; linoleic acid; oleic acid; vitamin B; iron; and zinc. Per 100 g of sesame seeds, 17 grams of protein; 15.02 mg of iron; 356 mg of magnesium; 638 mg of phosphorus (3 times more than beef); and 989 mg of calcium (higher than what is found in whole milk) are found. Moreover, sesame seeds contain high levels of lignans that help in preventing breast cancer.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Intense competition from other superfoods. The sesame seeds market in Europe is facing severe competition from other superfoods like chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, quinoa seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, amaranth, and muskmelon seeds. The demand for these seeds is also rising due to their high contents of essential fatty acids such as omega-3 and omega-6. These acids are essential for tissue growth and metabolism. Also, these significant fatty acids cannot be produced by the body itself and have to be obtained only through a healthy balanced diet.
