logoMarket Overview

Prebiotics are carbohydrates that are not digested by digestive enzymes or acids and enable beneficial bacteria to grow or function better in the human gut. They improve the gut's barrier function, strengthen the immune system, reduce stomach inflammation, improve overall digestive function, minimize the chances of diarrhea, enhance calcium absorption to improve bone strength, and lower risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease. Prebiotic components such as inulin, oligosaccharides, galacto oligosaccharide (GOS), fructo-oligosaccharide (FOS), mannan-oligosaccharide (MOS), and polydextrose, among others, are helpful to human and animal health.

Prebiotics are used in a variety of foods, drinks, and supplements because they are not only resistant to body enzymes and acids, but also because they are highly stable and unaffected by high temperatures or long-term storage. Prebiotics are found in foods and beverages such as bread, cereals, yogurt, snack bars, and sports drinks that are pre-packaged. Furthermore, these can be used as a supplement in the form of tablets, pastilles, and powders, or they can be added to dietary supplements. They're also used in the feed of animals including forage, fodder, and poultry.

logo Growth Drivers

In recent years, changing lifestyles and hectic schedules have exacerbated bad habits among consumers, leading to a variety of health-related issues such as IBD, obesity, and so on. As a result, rising consumer demand for nutritious foods and increased health concerns are expected to be the key driving forces for global prebiotic ingredients markets over the forecast period. Furthermore, with technological and product advancements over the years, these compounds have found widespread use in the cosmetics industry, where they are included in serums and moisturizers to promote serum microbiome growth. Demand for these components is expected to grow dramatically due to the continually developing cosmetic sector.

Several benefits associated with prebiotic compounds, such as normal gut function, prevention of diarrhea, immune system strengthening, decreased stomach inflammation, etc. are some of the factors which are expected to fuel the global prebiotics ingredients market expansion.

logoRecent Development

In July 2021, Taiyo GmbH, a German natural dietary fibers company, and Asiros, a Danish fruit powders company, had collaborated to produce and commercialize two high-fiber fruit powder varieties which fully replace the need for maltodextrin. Sunfiber, a clinically proven prebiotic from Taiyo, is blended with Asiros' mixes. Maltodextrin consumption on a regular basis may increase the risk of diabetes mellitus, as well as weight gain and excessive cholesterol.

Furthermore, it may disrupt the gut's bacterial balance, resulting in digestive problems and inflammatory bowel disease. The FDA, on the other hand, has authorized Sunfiber as a prebiotic fiber. It is certified low-FODMAP (a diet meant to aid people with IBS), is non-GMO, and is completely water-soluble, tasteless, odorless, and colorless.
