DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Freeze-Dried Microbial Food Culture Market - Growth, Trends and Forecasts (2017 - 2022)" report to their offering.
Freeze-drying produces a superior quality culture by facilitating long-term storage and retaining the intact structure of the culture by minimizing the damage that may be caused by other drying methods. The increased shelf-life makes it a profitable product during its supply chain. Moreover, the cultures retain their original shape, while being light-weight, which makes them convenient for transportation. Freeze-dried cultures can be easily revived after prolonged storage by adding liquid medium, and transferring the rehydrated culture to a suitable growth medium.
Consumer demand for freeze-dried cultures is also growing mainly due to their convenience; consumers mostly use these cultures to prepare home-made yogurt and sourdough bread. Freeze-dried cultures are preferred for probiotic food and fermented drink applications. The demand for fermented foods is growing rapidly due to the increased consumer awareness, which is another growth factor for the market. However, freeze-drying of cultures is an expensive process, and large-scale production of the cultures is not very favourable. Availability of other microbial cultures, such as spray dried culture and liquid microbial culture, are affecting the market.
The global freeze-dried microbial food culture market has been segmented by application and geography. The freeze-dried microbial food culture market, by application, includes dairy-based, cereal-based, meat-based, beverage and other products. The dairy-based segment holds the largest share in the market due to the massive consumption of dairy products, followed by the beverage market.
Some of the major players capturing the market include -
- Chr. Hansen
- Lallemand Inc.
- Lesaffre Group
- Nebraska Cultures Inc. (U.S.)
- Direct NewGen
