Global Protein Based Fat Replacers Market, By Type (Micro particulated Protein, Modified Whey Protein Concentrate, Others) Form (Liquid, Powder) Source (Animal, Plant) Application (Dairy products, Meat products, Others) – Industry Trends and Forecast to 2029
Market Analysis and Size
Almost any food contains fat. It adds a unique texture, flavour, and aroma to the dish in which it is used. While fat is required for survival, it can be harmful to one's health if consumed more than the physical needs required by the body. A high-fat diet increases the risk of heart disease, weight gain, and several types of cancers. The use of fat substitutes in food products allows the food's original quality characteristics to be preserved while avoiding the risks associated with fat consumption.
