The growth in demand for pectin among consumers is primarily driven by its fat- & cholesterol-free nature and its application as a fat substitute in the bakery industry. The bakery industry is one of the industries that cover a wide variety of food products and attract consumers from all age groups. In recent years, growing health concerns among consumers has compelled bakery industry operators to offer fat-free products, thereby potentially raising the demand for pectin.

Moreover, the vegan nature of pectin is likely to work to advantage of the bakery industry amid the rise of vegan culture across the globe and notable increase in number of population preferring vegetarian diet.

In addition to special property of binding with the intestinal wall and protecting it from opportunistic microbial invasion during stress, pectin offers a number of health benefits.

Pectin as a Solution to Various Complex Health Problems

Pectin is a solution to various health issues that were previously unable to cure. For example, niacin is an organic chemical taken by various consumers to supplement their diet with vitamin B3 and various important nutrients. But, it is also known to cause skin flushing in the face and upper body parts, which previously was treated as an allergy.

However, after deep research, it turns out that pectin helps in curing skin flushing caused by niacin, and skin flushing is not an allergy but a side effect of consuming more niacin. Similarly, pectin is known to treat ulcerated mouth and throat by simply applying it in the affected areas. Moreover, the replacement of chemicals with plant-based products in pharmaceuticals will continue to favor the growth of the pectin market.
