Healthy Lifestyle to Boost Demand for Dairy Blends
The global demand for dairy blends is fast gaining prominence due to high prices of traditional dairy products and growing demand for convenience foods. As more and more consumers are getting health conscious, dairy blends are proving for the unmet nutritional needs. They are known to offer health benefits and protect from infectious diseases. The market is further driven by the rising consumption of convenience foods. Busy lifestyle is drawing people towards time-saving foods, hence the demand for dairy blends is augmenting. Moreover, dairy blends can be used with other ingredients like cocoa powder, sugar, butter, dextrin and vegetable fats, thereby supplementing the market growth.
