Global Food Preservative Ingredients Market 2024

The use of food preservatives to extend the shelf-life of processed food products is widespread in the current market. A notable trend in this industry is the growing utilization of natural preservatives derived from plant and animal sources. While synthetic preservatives were previously favored for their effectiveness, consumer preferences have shifted towards preservative-free, natural, and organic food products. This shift has prompted the food industry to develop preservatives that match the quality of natural alternatives. Consequently, there is a mounting interest in the application of ingredients such as enzymes and live cultures to preserve food products, leading to the development of the natural preservatives market.

Major acidulants considered in this market include citric acid, phosphoric acid, lactic acid, ascorbic acid, and others. Food-grade phosphoric acid, known for its neutral profile, strength, and flavor retention, is particularly desirable for low-pH foods and beverages.
