Arabinoxylans: Market Outlook
Arabinoxylans (AX) are polysaccharides that are present in the tissues of cereal and grains, including wheat, corn, barley oat, rice, and rye. Arabinoxylans are mainly present in wheat and barley. The hydrolysis of arabinoxylans with arabinoxylan degrading enzymes results in a product known as arabinoxylan oligosaccharides. Arabinoxylan, along with arabinoxylan oligosaccharides, are considered as essential dietary fibers. These saccharides are deemed to be full of health benefiting and aiding properties such as cholesterol-lowering capacity, immune system modulating, prebiotics action, reducing the chances of type II diabetes, and others. Increasing health and wellness concerns among various demographics and the growing inclination towards a healthy diet and dietary fibers are resulting in the growing demand for arabinoxylans in the food and feed industry. Besides, the arabinoxylans derived from wheat and rye act as essential functional ingredients used in baked goods and other food products. Arabinoxylans are responsible for water binding and holding capacity, starch retrogradation, and rheology in bakery products and dough. They also are responsible for gas retention in dough due to their viscous influence on gluten-starch films.
Increasing Interest in Pro-health Compounds is Driving the Demand for Arabinoxylans
The market for arabinoxylans is anticipated to increase over the forecast years, owing to the growing demand for pro-health compounds. Increasing consumer inclination towards better lifestyles and sufficient dietary intake, including proper dietary fibers, are the factors responsible for the rising demand for arabinoxylans. The health aiding properties of arabinoxylans, such as digestive aid, improving gut health, cholesterol lowering, avoiding excessive glucose peaks, and other health benefits are helping arabinoxylan gain popularity among health enthusiasts. The increasing market for dietary supplements and nutraceuticals is further boosting the demand for arabinoxylans. Besides, increasing applications of arabinoxylans in the food industry for the preparation of bread, dough, and other baked products to bind water and to improve the physical property of the goods are further fuelling the demand for arabinoxylans.
