Exponential Advances in F&B Industry to Compel Large Scale Adoption of Fumaric Acidby Basant K. Global Market Research Reports
Identified as an intermediate metabolite in citric acid cycle, fumaric acid is essentially dicarboxylic acid characterized by carbon double bonds demonstrating E geometry. Fumaric acid is largely obtained from the oxidation process of succinic acid by succinate dehygenase. Owing to its characteristic properties such as superlative acidity regularization capabilities, fumaric acid has witnessed massive adoption traction across diverse industrial applications. However, its cancer inducing properties has off late garnered ample speculation, limiting its functional scope.
Fumaric Acid Significantly Substitutes Citric Acid on the Back of its Distinct Tartness
Fumaric acid owing to its naturally sourced prevalence has garnered ample applications in food industry. It usually comes as a white crystalline powder as well as granular format and is naturally available in fruits and vegetables such as iceland moss, lichen, mushrooms. However, for industrial applications, fumaric acid is derived from malic acid.
Owing to enormous inclination towards consuming processed foods, backed by fast transitioning lifestyle, grueling work life culture, and stern rise in ethnic food flavorings, preferences for packaged foods has witnessed sharp spike, enabling adoption of advanced food additives to retain shelf life and nutritional goodness of packaged foot items. Additionally, specific foot items also necessitate inclusion of characteristic tanginess or tartness which further gravitates inclusion of fumaric acid as a notable food ingredient. As opposed to other competitive variants such as citric acid, fumaric acid is highly valued for its distinct and pronounced sour flavor hence often substituting citric acid in a host of F&B applications.
Tangible Advances in Home Baking Expeditions to Entice Pronounced Inclusion in Confectionary and Bakery Items
Besides large scale adoption as food additive, fumaric acid is also spotted in a host of popular dairy products encompassing condensed milk, chocolate milk as well as whey protein beverages which continue to remain top favorites amongst health conscious individuals. Additionally, owing to surged advances in vegan food consumption, adoption of dairy free items such as soy milk and nut drinks also contain substantial fumaric acid. Besides dairy and dairy free variants, the food industry has enormously relied upon fumaric acid for egg-based confectionary.
Canned Fruits and Vegetables Vertical yet another Prominent Adopter of Fumaric Acid
Tangible surge in consumption and demands of bakery and confectionary items on the back of fast expanding quick snacking consumer tendencies and influx in home baking ventures are likely to further gravitate adoption of fumaric acid. Of-late there has been a tangible uproar in consumer preferences and consumption of processed food variants such as canned fruits and vegetables to effectively blur the lines in demand and supply disparities.
To significantly offset limitations associated with seasonal unavailability of certain food items, the food industry largely banks upon essential additives such as fumaric acid to retain functional goodness of nut based spreads and drinks. These aspects have majorly motivated the fumaric acid market in the recent years.
Besides stark adoption in food industry beverages comprising both alcoholic and non-alcoholic forms frequently include fumaric acid, besides large scale adoption in a host of condiments such as sauces, jams, and sweeteners.
In recent years, environment protection stewardship has attained novel heights and consumer attention owing to sharp rise in ecological degradation has kindled far flung advances in ecologically safe chemicals such as biomass sourced chemicals to address ardent environmental concerns. In this regard, biomass sourced chemical molecules such as fumaric acid has emerged as one of the most valued chemicals that finds ample adoption in a host of end-use applications. Besides ample production processes, synthesis of fumaric acid from brewery wastewater in the presence of Rhizopus oryzae through the process of submerged fermentation has emerged as a potential new production technique, contributing enormously towards fumaric acid generation.
Fumaric Acid Meets Severe Speculations on the Back of its Tumor Inducing Properties
Although accounted as safe food additive, some prominent adverse effects of fumaric acid encompass kidney malfunctions upon prolonged use in drug administration. Additionally, the acid is also directly associated with cancerous tumors and growth triggered by its hindering properties of prolyl hydroxylase containing enzymes. Additionally, fumaric acid is also accounted to severely hamper normal respiratory functions catapulting respiratory tract irritation and throat discomfort. Other potential downsides of fumaric acid include ocular digestive, and dermatology ailments.
Notable advances in processed food industry as well as paints and coatings applications on the back of fast expanding infrastructure development endeavors worldwide are accounted to fetch exorbitant rise in adoption of fumaric acid in a host of end-user applications such as F&B, paints and coatings verticals. High value ventures in aforementioned verticals across emerging economies such as Asia Pacific triggered by improved spending capacities and proactive government initiatives towards infrastructure development offer rife conditions for fumaric acid adoption.
