Edible Nuts Market: Overview
Edible nuts are consumed worldwide for their nutritional value. They have attracted the attention among consumers and the food industry because of their dietary macro- and micronutrients. Advances in harvesting, storage, and processing have propelled strides in the edible nuts market further. The long-shelf life has allowed producers to retain the sensory properties of edible nuts, prolonging the spectrum of opportunities that they can reap over the past several years.
The health benefits associated with edible nuts has been extensively utilized in varieties of recipes. A popular example is the consumption of peanuts. The use of walnuts, almonds, cashew nuts, and pistachios is fast gathering steam not just among affluent class but also among middle-class populations around the world.
Key application areas in the edible nuts market include bakery and confectionery, dairy, and snacks. Developed countries have been expanding the production of almonds and peanuts, in order to meet the worldwide demand for edible nuts through supermarkets and hypermarkets.
Edible Nuts Market: Key Trends
The growing demand for plant-based beverages is one of the key trend bolstering the prospects in the edible nuts market. The use of edible nuts as a part of dietary constituents in preventing lifestyle-based diseases has been constantly gathering steam. Most of the edible nuts are found to be helpful in reducing cholesterol levels in the blood. The health prospect of edible nuts in reducing the prevalence of coronary heart diseases is boosting the edible nuts market.
However, there exist potential health risks when they are excessively consumed, though they contain high nutrients. For example, excessive consumption of almonds and walnuts through snacking might cause abdominal discomfort and diarrhea. Another key concern is mycotoxin contamination. Kin countries where the food industry is not well-regulated, unlike in developed countries, edible nuts are prone to adverse toxicological effects due to presence of a certain group of mycotoxins. Nevertheless, adoption of Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP) system might and help producers and sellers overcome such adverse effects.
