Global Flavor Enhancer Market Outlook-

- Of the main global region, the flavor enhancers market is large in North America, followed by Asia Pacific and Western Europe. The North America and Europe markets contribute to over half of the worldwide consumption of the flavor enhancers. Flavor enhancers in powdered form are most commonly used as they are easier to use compared to liquid and semi-liquid forms, therefore the Natural Flavoring Enhancer segment is expected to account for the largest share in the flavor enhancer market. There is a growing demand for processed food in Asia Pacific region which is likely to surpass the global flavor enhancer market. Decrease in food intake due to numerous sensory, metabolic and pharmacologic factors and lower rates of nutrient absorption have been observed in the global market which has led to technological innovations which are predicted to facilitate growth of the flavor enhancer market over the forecast period. Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) is most commonly used as a flavor enhancer in savory products.

Salt, as a natural flavor enhancer has its own negative effects when consumed in large quantities. Large consumption of salt contributes to heart disease and high blood pressure. In the EU-Funded Taste Project, the researchers deduced that 'Brown Algae' can be used as a substitute for salt which can reduce salt content of industrially processed foods. In July 2016, PLT Health Solutions launched PhytoShield Flavor Enhancer that improves product quality and delivers antimicrobial property which led to longer shelf life of the flavor enhancer product.
