Salatrim Market: Regional Analysis
The market for the low-calorie food products in the U.S. is the highest as two-thirds of its adult population is overweight. Thus, food manufacturers are continuing to launch products that are alternatives to high calorie food to cater to the growing trends of consumers. Also, the food manufacturers are using the salatrim in combination with other low-fat ingredients so as to not compromise on the taste and texture of the food products. The low-fat food products are also high in demand in the Asia Pacific and the MEA region but the penetration is still low among the consumers.
