Strategic Investment in Brazil Food and Beverage Ingredient Market

  • Moreover, 15.6% of annual per capita spending has been on food and beverage products by the consumers (as per New Frontiers in Food), which is expected to further drive the market.

Inclination toward Natural Preservative Ingredients
  • Organic acids, which are both naturally present in foods during fermentation or which are added to foods during processing, can be used increasingly for food preservation in the country's food and beverage products.
  • The most commonly used organic acids include citric, succinic, malic, tartaric, benzoic, lactic and propionic acids. For instance, Benzoic acid is the oldest and most widely used preservative. It occurs naturally in cranberries, raspberries, plums, prunes, cinnamon, and cloves.

Therefore, considering this fact, more food and beverage manufacturers in the country should resort to adopting organic and specialty food preservative ingredients in their products.
