DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Free from Food Market by Type and Distribution Channel: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast 2019-2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Free from food products are known as the products in which certain ingredients are removed to make them healthier and safer for consumption. They may be dairy-free, sugar-free, carb-free, lactose-free, artificial ingredient-free food, or egg-free depending upon the purpose for which they are being produced. The consumption of free from dairy and free from gluten foods is not only limited to nutritional needs but is also gaining importance, owing to issues related to intolerance or allergies.
Dairy-free products can be referred to the milk products produced by vegan alternatives. Soy, rice, almond, coconut, and even hemp seed milks are the popular dairy-free products that are dominating the dairy-free segment. Sugar-free products are made without the addition of actual sugar. Sugar substitutes such as aspartame, cyclamate, mogrosides, saccharin, and stevia are used in sugar-free products.
These products provide a sweet taste, while at the same time containing less calories as compared to sugar-based sweeteners, thus making it a zero-calorie or low-calorie product. Consumption of carbohydrates beyond the prescribed level has a negative impact on blood sugar and insulin levels. Thus, restricting carbohydrates in food items controls sugar levels and insulin needs. Increase in prevalence of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, dementia, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases is a key factor that augments the demand for low-carb food products
The consumer preference toward organic, natural, and healthy food is on a constant rise, owing to increase in health consciousness among consumers. Furthermore, surge in disposable income, improvement in living standard, rise in health expenditure, and large-scale promotion of organic foods owing to their benefit, such as their chemical-free nature, drive the growth of free from food market.
Increase in adverse health effects due to use of artificial ingredients, additives, or colorants such as E133 and the adoption of controversial food technologies such as GMOs have in the preparation of free from food products have limited their adoption among consumers. Moreover, these products are significantly expensive, and have a potentially shorter shelf life, thereby limiting their adoption. Furthermore, additional ingredients are added in free from food products to meet the needs of prescribed regulations, which incurs extra production cost of free from food products.
