Fermented Ingredients Market|Size,Share,Growth|2023-2030

Fermented Ingredients Market Size (2023 - 2030)

The global Fermented Ingredients Market Size is estimated to reach USD 51.76 billion by 2030 from USD 26.67 billion in 2022. The market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 8.6% from 2023 - 2030. 

The fermentation process involves the breakdown of chemical substances resulting in the release of a considerable amount of heat and carbonation because of which manufacturers are shifting to batch fermentation to prevent unwanted reactions during the chemical breakdowns. Fermentation is a metabolic process where sugar is converted into gases, liquids, and alcohol. Fermentation improves the taste, digestibility, and nutrition of the food by making changes in its quality and acceptability. 

Fermented ingredients are termed food additives. Fermented ingredients are processed or semi-processed forms of diverse materials and are available in various forms. Fermented ingredients are acidic. 

Amino acids are the most common fermented ingredients. Fermented foods have probiotics served to maintain the balance of organisms resulting in different health benefits varying from developed digestion to risen immunity. 

For example, Itaconix, a U.S subsidiary of the UK-based polymer developer Revolymer, works with two specialty chemical companies for developing polymer-based fermentation-derived itaconic acid, in 2017.
