Rapidly Rising Demand for Mushroom Protein Augmenting Sales of Mushroom Powder: Persistence Market Research Study

Published On : Sep 21, 2022

Global consumption of mushroom powder is pegged at 79,756 tons in 2022 and is expected to increase at a CAGR of 6% to reach 142,387 tons by 2032. The market for mushroom powder has grown considerably in recent years and is expected to continue to do so going ahead.

While diets limited to meat, dairy, and eggs were once considered a fad, many customers today, especially millennials, are interested in functional foods, dietary supplements, and plant-based products, which is driving the demand for mushroom powder. Market growth reflects the rising demand for vegan and plant-based meat substitutes, in addition to medicinal modifications.

The demand for meat substitutes has grown over the past few years due to better-tasting and more readily available products. Due to the exhaustion of traditional plant-based protein sources, including peas, rice, lentils, and other grain proteins, mushrooms have emerged as a distinctive option for both vegans and vegetarians.

Lectins, ribosome inactivating proteins (RIP), fungal immunomodulatory proteins (FIP), ribonucleases, and laccases are the types of mushroom proteins being offered by many food processing companies for use in nutraceutical, personal care, and food applications as a result of the transition to plant-based proteins for food safety, security, and sustainability.

Additionally, the mushroom powder industry is expected to grow as a result of the nutritional value and medicinal properties of edible mushrooms. The immune-modulatory and anticancer properties of lectins play a critical role in improving the therapeutic value of edible mushrooms. Mushroom protein's exceptional quality is a bonus benefit for the market for dietary supplements. The market for mushroom protein is expanding as a result of growing consumer knowledge of novel sources of proteins, such as rice, peas, potatoes, and mushroom protein.

Common edible mushroom species contain 19&-35% protein, which is higher than the proteins found in rice, wheat, milk, and soybeans. High-protein mushrooms and protein powders made from mushrooms are serving as an effective addition to patients' dietary regimens due to their significant health benefits.
