Organic Pasta Market: Organic Wheat Pasta to Become Popular Choice for Kids

A lot of parents are health conscious, and keep a close watch on the eating habits of their children. Since the early years of toddlers and kids determine their health curve, parents are encouraging growing kids to consume nutrient- and vitamin-rich food for better physiological and cognitive development.

However, most kids are reluctant to try out and develop a taste for healthy food, and keep demanding interesting flavors. The trick that parents follow is camouflaging the healthy ingredients in food, such as including flavorsome sauces in organic pasta. Players operating in the organic pasta market are introducing products that are wholly-organic and chemical-free.

On a global level, wheat pasta is projected to account for a volume sales of ~54 million tons by the end of 2019. As such, manufacturers in the organic pasta market are introducing added nutrition in their products, such as fiber-rich nutrients that provide healthy growth minerals such as iron, manganese, selenium, and copper in the child’s diet. Organic pasta market players need to create more awareness about the health benefits of organic wheat pasta, and educate consumers about unadulterated and chemical-free product offerings.

Clean-label Enzymes Influence Customer Purchase Decisions in the Organic Pasta Market

Manufacturers in the organic pasta market are investing on the production of non-stick organic spaghetti pasta by developing an enzyme that helps stabilize overcooked pasta. This enzyme helps improve the cooking tolerance of pasta, which could aid manufacturers in saving cost on raw materials. Adding the enzyme while preparing any organic pasta helps prevent the pasta from sticking together even when cooked for more time. For instance, in December 2018, Mühlenchemie GmbH & Co. KG — a leading flour treatment company, announced the launch of Pastazym PD — a 'clean label' enzyme that helps in exceptional stability in cooking pasta, even under extreme conditions.

Fluctuating wheat quality, restricted availability of high-quality hard wheat, and unsteady prices of raw materials force manufacturers to resort to soft wheat mixtures that affect the quality of organic pasta. Thus, players of the organic pasta market can build strategic partnerships with flour treatment companies and devise marketing tactics such as free sampling of the enzyme along with organic pasta products. This strategy can have a positive influence on the purchase decisions of customers.

Increased Promotion and Gluten-free Offerings to Trigger Growth of the Organic Pasta Market

In order to offer added value to consumers, manufacturers are increasing their organic farming capacities. Also, there is the need for increased marketing and promotion of organic pasta, highlighting its health, safety, and sustainability attributes. Increased promotion will help reduce the adverse effects of stringent supply chain policies, and will help manufacturers in making their products more accessible to broader sections of the population, thus increasing its penetration in the organic pasta market.

There is the growing need to portray a positive image for dry pasta products, as they are becoming less popular in light of other alternative products and substitutes such as fresh pasta, rice pasta, ready-to-serve soups, cereals, and grains. Since consumers have a general perception that pasta is fattening, difficult to digest, and complicated to cook, market players need to devise communication strategies that highlight the health benefits of organic pasta. As such, manufacturers are triggering the increased demand for organic pasta by introducing gluten-free and whole grain ingredients in ready-to-serve products.
