Biofortification Market

Biofortification Market: Global Industry Trend Analysis 2013 to 2017 and Forecast 2018 - 2028

Biofortification Market Segmented By Plant Breeding Techniques, Agronomical Practices and Biotechnological Methods used in Wheat, Rice, Beans, Cassava, Corn, Pearl Millet and Sweet Potato Crops

Market Outlook:

The increasing population, urbanization, busy working life has led unhealthy as well as uneven eating habits. There is a rise in awareness among people about the benefits of having a healthy diet. However, with the increased use of processed food there is an increased demand for food with increased nutritional content.

As per WHO,  Fortification is the process of intentionally increasing the content of an essential micronutrient, i.e. mineral and vitamins as well as including trace elements in food, in order to improve the nutritional quality of the food in order to provide a public health benefit with lower risk to health.

According to WHO, Biofortification is the process by which intends the improvement in nutritional quality in food crops through conventional plant breeding, agronomic practices or advance biotechnological methods.

The basic difference between Biofortification and conventional fortification is that the value addition is done in the nutrition levels of crops during its growth period instead of increasing value while food processing. Biofortification is thus gaining popularity with an increasing demand for high nutritional value food and the market for Biofortification is expected to grow over the forecast period.
