Food and Beverages | Monday, August 10, 2020

The food and beverage sector is introducing Nanoencapsulation in the market that can be utilized as an alternative to unpopular items like sugar.

FREMONT, CA: Nanoencapsulation consists of nano-sized nutrients like calcium iron, and vitamins are implemented within food so that it becomes easy for the body to absorb them rapidly. Recently in the food and beverage industry, this concept has become popular. They use probiotics and other alternate functional ingredients like CBD, algae, and collagen. 

Top 10 Food Tech Startups - 2019According to the market research reports in the food and beverage sector, the trend of Nanoencapsulation is less likely to slow down in recent times. The consumers are welcoming the functional ingredients like algae, kombucha, and CBD, and it is expected that more such innovative ingredients will take its place in the market. Moreover, producers of such ingredients have also started to focus on consumer requirements and their taste, with advanced health benefits. 

Today, some of the companies in the food industry might still be in a dilemma to use CBD, but it is estimated that innovative new applications for the CBD will be generated when personalized food will enter into the market. However, it will also need the extraction of essential oil from various breeds of plants according to the preference of the consumers. 

Meanwhile, the Nanoencapsulation technologies will continue to witness its surge because they can help to expand the shelf-life of probiotics. They can also encapsulate the up-cycled components like polyphenols and antioxidants that are generally challenging to implement in food. 

The upcycling technologies prioritize offering a substitute for unwanted materials like palm oil and sugar. Therefore, the demand for upcycling like protein synthetization and air protein will increase and spread worldwide. With time, larger enterprises, particularly flavor manufacturers and similar companies, will invest in this evolving sector. 

Food surplus and biomaterials 

Many organizations are utilizing food surplus and changing it into products. These types of companies are rising and expending their growth as the demand is increasing. Moreover, due to the present climate crisis, some companies have started to used alternatives like surplus fresh bread to make beer or leftover fruit to make snack bars. As these ingredients would have gone waste, so the companies are using them for a better purpose. 

Among the start-up products, the popularity of biomaterials is also increasing because most of the big companies are switching to such items. Moreover, the plant-based sector will also entirely get involved with packaging like paper bottles. It is more likely that plastic and glass packaging will get replaced with fully recycled packages.
