    Published on September 24, 2021

    According to a recent study from market research firm Graphical Research, the North America food acidulants market size is poised to expand at substantial CAGR during the forecast period. Food acidulants industry in North America will experience robust growth during 2020-2026.

    The demand for these acidulants has increased tremendously in the past few years, thanks to the robust increase in demand for packaged foods.

While this is a natural ingredient, its concentrated form is used in a variety of foods like candies, juices, sodas and powdered drinks to enhance their acidic properties and increase the product shelf life by acting as a preservative.

    Baked goods like rolls and breads are seeing the highest demand among the consumers. For example, in 2020 alone, the U.S. reported the total sales of breads and rolls to be more than a whopping $14 billion. This figure shows that food acid regulators have a strong hold over bakeries and confectionaries. These preservatives are used in chocolates and candies as well which are quite popular among children and adults. All these factors will strongly favor North America food acidulants market outlook.

For example, food grade acidulant manufacturer Bartek, in February 2019, announced that it was going to expand its production capacity of malic acid to 4000 tons per annum. Bartek announced this move keeping in mind the growing demand for packaged foods from food and beverage companies.

    Some of the leading companies engaged in providing food acidulants in North America are Archer Daniels Midland Company, Cargill Inc., Tate & Lyle, RP International Ltd., Bartek Ingredients Inc., Corbion and many others.

    The food and beverage industry in North America will the biggest consumer of food acidulants during the mentioned forecast timeline.

These things have played a key role in increasing the demand for artificial flavors and preservatives to enhance the taste and shelf life of the product.
