Clean label and exciting flavors of organic tortilla products are generating value-grab opportunities for manufacturers. This is evident since the organic tortilla market is slated to expand at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period. Manufacturers use reducing agents such as L-cysteine or sodium metabisulfite in order to obtain appropriate dough rheology. However, many consumers are unable to understand the importance of such ingredients written on labels, which is likely to impede the growth of the organic tortilla market. Hence, manufacturers are using clean-label ingredients such as dried yeast and enzymes in order to simplify the ingredients list for consumers and increase the availability of healthy organic tortilla products.

Since dried yeast and enzymes mimic the properties of reducing agents, manufacturers are utilizing these clean-label ingredients to strike the right balance between health and indulgence.
