Application in Processed Foods for Improving Shelf Life Augurs Well

Since sodium propionate is categorized as an artificial food preservative and chemical ingredient, there could be a slight slack in its application as a food additive in a range of edible products. However, the compound has been labeled as a generally recognized as safe (GRAS) ingredient for applications in food products by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) as well as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Sodium propionate could make processed foods relatively shelf-stable by inhibiting the growth of microorganisms. Furthermore, it could act as a tenderizer and also improve the color of processed meat.

The demand for sodium propionate is anticipated to increase in the foreseeable future with the growing consumption of meat and meat products. Moreover, the compound could be increasingly used as a result of the direct effect of the factory farming industry progressively adopting animal feed additives to improve egg, meat, and milk production. Other factors such as improved outlay on food products and rising disposable income could add to the growth of the world sodium propionate market.

APAC Market Prophesied to Expand to US$9.4 Million by 2021

Regions such as the Middle East and Africa (MEA), Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe, South America, and North America could be among the important markets for sodium propionate. Asia Pacific is envisaged to be largely benefited from the presence of leading producers in key countries such as India and China. These producers could adopt the strategy of offering cost-effective products to target the developing markets of South and Southeast Asia. APAC mainly relies on imports to meet the consumer demand in the region since it accommodates an insignificant count of small capacity producers.

In general the international sodium propionate market is prognosticated to invite rich gains and new opportunities because of the popular role of the compound in producing innovative products supported by research and development initiatives.
