Free-from, Natural and Organic: The Key Trend

High fat and gluten content restrains consumers to buy. As consumers shift towards low fat, gluten free, multigrain or wholegrain, high fiber, additives free products, the demand for free-from cakes and pastries have increased. The use of natural ingredients and focus on low-fat, freshness in cake products has managed to increase the consumption and mitigate concern over its shelf life storage. There is an increased demand for clean label baked products globally owing to adverse health effect of artificial ingredients. Consumers are looking for natural and organic ingredients in cakes and pastries. The global organic food market is expected to register a 14% CAGR during 2016 to 2021. The demand for organic cake, pastries, and sweet pies has increased significantly in Europe mainly in France and Germany.

However, Organic is not only the standalone label claim as consumers seek free-from or high fiber in addition to it.

Organic and healthier ingredients are attracting sales of cake, pastries, and sweet pies mostly in the developed region.
