Organic-complaint L-Malic Acid Additives Gain Prominence in F&B Industry

The malic acid market is predicted to clock a CAGR of 3.6%, in terms of volume, during the forecast period. However, the high prevalence of health issues such as dry mouth, fibromyalgia, skin issues, and kidney stone are fueling the demand for malic acid supplements.

Moreover, additive innovations are contributing to the growth of the malic acid market. NutriScience - a global ingredient developer and supplier, is gaining recognition for NuMalic® organic-complaint L-malic acid that is gaining application in functional foods, powdered drink mixes, and tea beverages, among others. As such, food & beverages (F&B) are expected to dictate the highest revenue share amongst all application types in the malic acid market during the forecast period.

Renewable Substrates Essential for Competitive Bio-based Production of Malic Acid

Malic acid derived from fossil resources is currently being used in the F&B industry. However, transition from a fossil-based to a bio-based economy is revolutionizing the global malic acid market. Such trends are anticipated to boost the production capacities of manufacturers, since fossil resources are depleting at a fast rate. Biotechnologically produced L-malic acid holds promising potentials in the field of biopolymers.

Besides ecological reasons, the possibility to produce enantiopure L-malic acid by microbial fermentation is emerging as an advantage over chemical synthesis of malic acid. The utilization of renewable substrates as a substitute to glucose is being emphasized as a key aspect for a competitive bio-based production of malic acid.
