The report provides actionable insights to improve source-to-contract cycle performance in the Global Food Thickeners Market. It helps sourcing professionals formulate better category strategies, enhance savings, understand supplier and market challenges, and implement sourcing best practices.
One of the best procurement practices is to assess suppliers' food safety quality traceability system. Product traceability systems are developed with the objective of protecting the food and beverage manufacturers from safety, risk, fraud, and depletion of product quality.
The demand for convenience and processed food and beverage products, especially in developing countries, is continuing to increase the adoption of different types of food thickeners. Food thickening agents such as locust bean gum, guar gum, pectin, gelatin, and carrageenan are being used to provide properties such as thickening, viscosity, melt-in-mouth, and visual-appeal in dairy products.
The market is also witnessing an adoption of a gluten-free diet. Increasing global adoption of a gluten-free diet has resulted in the development of gluten-free food ingredients and additives to meet the functional role of the protein. As a result, gelling and thickening agents such as vegetable gums including psyllium, locust bean, guar gum, and xanthan and starch are being used to retain the original properties such as structure, mouthfeel, and visual appeal.
