The consumer dislike towards fruits and vegetables have led to the growth of the dehydrated fruit ingredients market. They are widely used in the manufacture of food flavors and aromas and the rising demand for the natural ingredients in food colors and flavors is likely to boost the growth of the dehydrated fruit ingredients market in the forecast period.
