Synthetic Food Antioxidant Market 2019-2027: Recent Industry Activity, Product Innovations & Focus on Key Players


Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/12/2019 -- Synthetic antioxidants are chemically synthesized petroleum-based antioxidants that are used to stabilize different types of lipidic systems. Synthetic antioxidants are effective in fish oils, vegetable oils, animal fats, and low-fat snack foods, in order to maintain quality of products. Four major types of synthetic antioxidant are used in the food industry namely, BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole), BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene), PG (propyl gallate), and TBHQ (tert-butylhydroxyquinone). These antioxidants offers protection for food during storage and help extend shelf life.

Low production cost and easy availability of these products are expected to drive growth of the global synthetic food antioxidant market during the forecast period. Synthetic food antioxidants possess anti-carcinogenic and anti-mutagenic properties, which is why they are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Union Directives and Regulation for application. Moreover, they are used in prevention of diseases such as cancer, coronary heart disease, and diabetes. This in turn, is increasing the demand for synthetic food antioxidants in the food and beverages and pharmaceutical industries, thus, boosting the market growth.
