Research and Markets: Global Digestive Health Food and Drinks Market 2014-2018 with Danisco, Danone, Nestlé & Yakult Honsha Dominating

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/m52ntw/global_digestive) has announced the addition of the "Global Digestive Health Food and Drinks Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The Global Digestive Health Food and Drinks market will grow at a CAGR of 8.04 percent over the period 2013-2018.

One of the major drivers in the market is the increasing aging population, which is the potential and primary consumers of digestive health food products and drinks. The majority of the demand for digestive health food products and drinks is from the APAC region, which is a densely populated region witnessing changing consumer lifestyles and increasing disposable income.

Probiotics are one of the main ingredients in digestive health food products and drinks and some of the leading prebiotic and probiotic yogurt brands include Activia, Yakult, and Chobani. However, the use of probiotics as a functional ingredient is also spreading into other product categories such as juices. Brands such as Proviva and Good Belly from Sweden and the US, respectively, incorporate probiotics into their juices to promote better digestive health. Good Belly, for instance, is regarded as a dairy-free probiotic drink containing cultures of Lactobacillus plantarum299v. This strain can survive the stomach's acidic environment and reach the remainder of the intestinal tract intact. Therefore, the increasing demand for probiotic products is expected to drive the Global Digestive Health Food and Drinks market during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that the increasing competition among vendors is a major challenge limiting the market's growth.
