Overview of the Dietary Fiber Market
Dietary fiber, also known as roughage, is the portion of food that is indigestible and is derived via plants. Dietary fiber can be of two primary types, namely insoluble and soluble fiber. Soluble fiber is the one which dissolves into water. This type of fiber is easily fermented within the colon into physiologically active byproducts and gases. On the other hand, insoluble fiber isn’t water soluble and is metabolically inert in nature. It provides bulking and can metabolically ferment within the large intestines. Insoluble fiber is extensively utilized in pharmaceutical and feed industries, and functional food.
In chemical terms, dietary fiber includes non-starch polysaccharides including cellulose, arabinoxylans, and a number of other plant components including resistant dextrins, resistant starch, lignin, inulin, chitins, beta-glucans, oligosaccharides, and pectins.
Geographically, the report categorizes the market into Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, and Rest of the World (RoW).
The global dietary fiber market will grow due to the changing habits related to food consumption, the increasing disposable income of individuals, and the increasing geriatric population globally. In addition, a number of health-benefits associated with the utilization of dietary fiber such as regular defecation, more control on blood sugar levels, and reduced chances of having colorectal cancer will also positively impact the development of this market.
Furthermore, the increasing demand for functional foods and nutraceuticals will also bolster the growth of the market. The increasing occurrence of a number of health issues such as gastro-intestinal troubles, diabetes, coronary heart disorder, cholesterol, obesity, and others, have also shifted the consumer preferences toward the consumption of products having more health benefits, thus supporting the growth of the overall market.
On the other hand, as stated in the report, the increasing strict regulations introduced by a number of regulatory bodies and the FDA on the consumption of dietary fiber may impede the development of the global dietary fiber market.
