Why Will Clean & Clear Labeling Practices Promote Shipment of Emulsion for Beverages?

Growing consumer awareness regarding natural & artificial flavoring ingredients in food products is leading to the imposition of stringent labeling regulations across the globe. Widespread knowledge about the health hazards of artificial substances is leading consumers to be critical about ingredients. Growing concerns and moral beliefs about beverage consumption and allergies caused due to added substances are triggering manufacturers to follow labelling regulations more sternly. For maintaining transparency in labeling, manufacturers are including recognizable ingredients on labels that consumers can understand. Clean & clear labeling practices are being employed by leading manufacturers to add more value to their products, differentiate themselves from other brands, and attract health-conscious consumers across the globe.

Will Popularity of Plant-based Beverages Impact Market Growth?

Increasing demand for premium plant-based beverages is encouraging manufacturers to invest in ramping up production capacity for such segments. Extensive use of emulsifiers in a variety of popular dairy and plant-based drinks is expected to drive global sales of emulsion for beverages over the coming years. In order to meet increasing consumer demand and gain a competitive edge, manufacturers are developing innovative combinations of emulsifiers. Owing to increasing popularity of plant-based beverages, leading players are focusing more on their manufacturing, along with implementation of appropriate & effective marketing strategies to attract more stakeholders.

Is New Product Development Helping Beverage Emulsifier Consumption Growth?

New product development is an integral part of the food industry, and predicting future trends and having the first product to market can give manufacturers a huge advantage against competitors. Changing components of a beverage to meet current demand is a struggle that manufacturers have to consider every day. Such demands include the removal of ingredients from current products that consumers perceive as undesirable, addition of desirable components, or replacement of expensive ingredients with inexpensive alternatives. With rise in demand for natural and organic products, especially from Europe and North America, key players are investing in innovate products.

Formulators are looking for stabilization of colors, flavors, texture, and micronutrients in beverages, as these ingredients are not soluble in water. There has been a rise in demand for multifunctional beverage emulsions that include features such as protection, controlled release, targeted delivery, and taste masking. Such beverage emulsions not only offer beverage manufacturers cost benefits, but also provide volume to the beverage with flavor or color with the use of a single emulsion only, rather than having to use two different beverage ingredients to enhance quality and taste.

Changing consumption patterns and continued demand for innovative beverages with newer colors and flavors are supporting growth in demand for emulsion for beverages across regions.

  • For instance, Ingredion Inc. offers Q-NATURALE® 200 V, a natural and clean label emulsifier derived from the Quillaja Saponaria Molina tree.
  • Another prominent manufacturer, CP Kelco, offers a wide range of non-GMO additives due to high consumer demand.

What are the Key Challenges for Emulsion for Beverage Manufacturers?

Consumers are becoming aware regarding chemical additives in food & beverages, and their adverse effects on the human body.  Chemical food additives are used as thickeners, stabilizers, and emulsifiers during the processing of food products to provide taste, flavor, and good appearance to them. Use of synthetic ingredients creates a cheaper, more stable product, but is also less attractive to many consumers, who, especially in developed countries, are favoring chemical-free ingredients and moving toward organic & natural options. Therefore, consumers’ negative perception toward synthetic additives is hampering market growth.

Leading beverage manufacturers are introducing stabilizer-free beverages to gain growing consumer interest in natural products that are free from additives. For instance, from Sep, 2018, Nestle SA eliminated emulsion stabilizers from two of its major milk brands in Brazil - Ninho and Molico - which represent milk for children and skimmed milk, respectively. The company invested around US$ 34.4 Mn for new technology that will enable the storing of milk for prolonged periods of time at room temperature, without any usage of stabilizer.
