Global Market Study on Tagatose: Increasing Usage in Dietetic Food Products to Drive Market Growth


According to World Health Organization, the number of obesity cases has tripled since 1975, and continues to increase at a higher rate. High sugar consumption is among the main factors contributing to obesity.

Rising awareness about the adverse impact of the consumption of high calorie food, including severe diseases such as obesity and heart diseases, has led to the adoption of low carb and low calorie diets.

Food manufacturers are using low-calorie sugar alternatives such as tagatose to offer products that fit within the requirements of these healthy diets. Furthermore, tagatose has a low glycemic index, which makes it suitable for use in dietetic foods. These factors are projected to drive the global tagatose market over the forecast period.

  • Damhert Nutrition, a tagatose-based manufacturer, introduced several low carb meal replacement products such as chocolate shakes and caramel shakes that contain tagatose.

Food for Diabetics' Trend to Boost Demand for Tagatose

According to the World Health Organization, diabetes is one of the most common causes of death. Antidiabetic food products are rapidly gaining traction on a global scale, attributable to the rising cases of diabetes. This has led to a marked increase in the introduction of food products with an antidiabetic claim.

Growing concerns regarding diabetes are influencing consumers to gradually move toward the consumption of antidiabetic food products. Between 2014 to 2018, global antidiabetic product launches registered an average annual growth of 39%.

Food manufacturers are shifting from the use of sugar to the use of low-calorie sugar substitutes such as tagatose, which may lower the consumer’s blood sugar and insulin response. This antidiabetic property of tagatose also increases its use in the pharmaceuticals industry, thereby catalyzing the growth of the global tagatose market.

  • Damhert Nutrition offers a sugar-free chocolate pasta with the addition of tagatose. The product contains 41.5% d-tagatose with less caloric content, which makes it a perfect antidiabetic food product.
