Fruit pulp has a longer shelf life as compared to fresh fruit. When kept frozen or chilled, the pulp retains all the minerals, vitamins, and proteins obtained after processing the pulp. Fruits are perishable and can be kept for a maximum of a month under normal, frozen, or chilled conditions. To produce food products from fruits at a later stage, fruit pulp or puree is developed and allows longer storage life without altering any natural contents.
Fruit powders typically contain fruits that are dehydrated at low temperatures, extending the shelf life of the powder as compared to fresh and frozen food products. Functional food and beverages are being consumed by customers who are continuously striving to fulfill their optimal nutritional intake.
Rising awareness regarding the importance of micronutrients, including minerals, vitamins, and amino acids, has resulted in increasing product demand. Customers are more likely to choose convenience foods that suit their specific nutrient requirements with lifestyle changes. These factors have increased consumer demand for nutraceuticals, which has, in turn, driven the demand for fruit powder.
Fruit powders are widely utilized in the food and beverage industry in numerous applications. The availability of different flavors and types of fruit powders allows food manufacturers to produce products with new and unique flavors. A variety of fruit powder-based beverages are high in demand and contain a significant amount of minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants.
With the use of various technological advancements, manufacturers can produce fruit powders of various fruits, such as exotic, citrus, tropical, and other types of fruits. Companies utilize various processing technologies such as drum drying, freeze drying, air drying, and spray drying to produce fruit powders.
Companies involved in distribution and production activities in the fruit processing industry are emphasizing the implementation of different development strategies such as partnerships, acquisitions, product launches, and joint ventures to increase their consumer base and brand awareness in the fruit preparation market. Key players are striving to fulfill the ever-changing customer demand for processed fruits that are offered on a customized basis to suit individual dietary needs.
Key players are also investing in the development of convenient fruit-based products that include readymade fruit purees, which can be used for smoothies and is a significant trend in the fruit preparation space. To gain more market opportunities, manufacturers are taking part in a variety of strategic initiatives. Regional, mid-sized, and small players in the global fruit puree market are more focused on increasing their production as well as export capabilities to gain more profits.
Over the coming years, the availability of custom fruit powdered solutions will be a major trend that is projected to increase the traction of the global market. During the forecasted period, the market for fruit powder is expected to increase significantly due to the rising demand for super fruit powders as they offer various functional and nutritional values to end products.
Tailor-made fruit powder solutions will enable new and innovative applications in the food and beverage sector owing to the unique and customized flavors & varieties offered by manufacturers. The nutritional properties of various fruits can be availed in nutraceuticals to boost the energy and development of consumers.
Asia Pacific and Latin American countries are at the forefront of the production of fruits. Large-scale production of fruits and purees in these regions leads to substantial exports of fresh fruits, purees, and concentrates to the established markets of Europe and North America. Particularly, North America is an import-dominating region for processed fruit products such as fruit purees, fruit concentrates, and IQF fruits.
However, the developed markets of Europe and North America are focusing on controlling the volume of imported fruit purees by limiting the supply of inferior-quality and inexpensive fruit purees from producing countries. Several reasons such as anti-dumping fees, import taxes, and changing rules & regulations are reinforcing the import barriers that may negatively impact the global supply of fruit purees and processed fruit.
The fruit preparation market will be unable to attain its full potential as a result of these regulatory obstacles.
Fruit powder adulteration is a serious malpractice as it creates products that are unhealthy and even possibly dangerous for consumers. Experts always emphasize the fact that consumers’ needs should be aligned with healthy diets. Fruit powders are prone to adulteration due to the excessive use of lead chromate and starch, which are not ingestible and might cause problems in the liver.
Fruits are ripened artificially by utilizing calcium carbide, which can lead to a negative impact on the finished products that are prepared through such fruits. This adulterant can cause problems such as ulcers, hypoxia, neurological disorders, and memory loss. Thus, adulteration in fruit powders can restrain the market growth for fruit preparation to some extent.
