How is Rice Starch Market Growth Being Influenced?

“Increasing Consumption of Convenience & Processed Food”

Convenience food product demand has increased significantly over the years owing to busier lives and rising consumer disposable income. As a result, the usage of clean label starch in various ready-to-mix food products has increased.

The ratio of amylose to amylopectin affects starch gelling, binding, and thickening. Various breeding techniques allow these ratios to be adjusted as needed. As a result, starch has become a priority in the preparation of convenience foods.

Moreover, the food sector is the world's fastest-growing industry, with exports expanding in emerging areas while simultaneously boosting its presence in existing markets. Food manufacturers are adopting and developing novel processing methods to meet the increasing demand for convenient, healthy, and functional foods.

Furthermore, in recent years, there has been an increase in demand for clean-labeled and organic products, globally.

“Shift toward Sustainable & Organic Food Options”

Organic and sustainable diets are gaining popularity as new consumer trends. People are choosing more sustainable food products as they become more aware of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Furthermore, as people's attitudes against animal-based and chemical-based food products become more negative, they are stressing sustainable diets. Consumer impressions of organic products are showing in their ever-changing purchasing patterns.

The health and well-being benefits of chemical-free products are essential drivers of the organic food ingredients market, which is thereby driving demand for organic rice starch across the world.

“Increasing Utilization of Modified Rice Starch Targeting Vegan Consumers”

Modified rice starch is a popular vegan replacement for regular powdered gelatin. Rice starch adds a smooth, creamy texture to soups and sauces. Rice starch extraction yields a significant amount of protein and fiber residue. Furthermore, numerous key companies in this sector are focusing on launching organic products to gain new consumers.

Moreover, low-fat dairy beverages have a smooth texture and a full, creamy flavor. Modified and clean-label rice starch provides stability and a distinct smoothness to dairy fruit products while retaining a rich fruity flavor.

“Growing Demand for Clean Label Products”

One of the major factors driving the demand for clean label products is the shift in customer preferences from products with artificial ingredients to products that contain natural ingredients and come with clean labels.

A large number of market participants are expected to enter this market owing to its adaptable nature and wide range of uses of clean-label starch in the food and beverage sector, as well as the trend of adopting clean-label products. Offering attractive growth over the coming years, the clean label market is expected to witness a hike in its growth on a global scale.

Moreover, regular rice starch is a natural alternative to other artificial coloring agents, as a clean label whitening ingredient in confectionery coatings such as chewing gum, hard candy, and chocolate lentils.

  • BENEO's native rice starch can substitute flour or wheat starch in liquorice, creating a chewy and soft texture in gluten-free, and clean-label meals.

“Growing Lactose Intolerance among Population”

Critical aspects limiting the global growth of the rice starch market are increasing consumer health consciousness leading to consumption of low-fat dairy products, rising lactose intolerance, and rising production costs.

However, the increasing prevalence of lactose intolerance will be a substantial impediment to overall market growth.
