Adoption To Cure Diseases Widening Horizon For Market Growth

A prebiotic refers to a non-digestible food substance that provide food to beneficial micro-organisms in the digestive tract. Prebiotics works by stimulating the growth of lactic acid and bifidogenic bacteria in the gastro-intestinal tract or digestive tract. Mainly, the prebiotics consist of oligosaccharides and dietary fibres. Prebiotics are majorly implicated for gut health maintenance, starter culture formulation, cancer inhibition, colitis prevention, cholesterol removal, immunopotentiation, reduction of cardiovascular disease, prevention of constipation and obesity. It is also implicated for the bacteriocin production and it is majorly used in poultry, fishery, pet food and cattle feed.

Some of the common prebiotic ingredient includes, compound, inulin, oligofructose etc. also it contains resistant starch which resist digestion human body. Several natural food sources which are rich in nutrients, includes vegetables (asparagus, onion, garlic, beet, artichokes, and leeks), fruits (tomatoes and bananas), and grains (oats, rye and barley). The commercial sources of non-digestible oligosaccharides are majorly available as food ingredients and dietary supplements.

High prevalence of gut related diseases silver line for market of prebiotic ingredients

Prebiotic therapies have been found to cure various gut related diseases. The consumption of prebiotic leads to suppression of diarrhoea, constipation relief, minimises the risks of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, related with the dyslipidaemia, obesity insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. The fast and changing life style of humans requires a diet which is adequately enriched with fibres for the proper working of gut. The high prevalence of obesity across the world is majorly driving the market of prebiotics in the forecast period. As prebiotic product consumption helps in weight loss. Prebiotics contains bacteria’s which bacteria’s in gut. It reduces abdominal fat. According to Prebiotics Centre, fermented milk consumption can reduce around 4.6% of abdominal fat of the body. According to the National Association of Health Data Organizations, around 2.1 billion people, that is 30% of the world’s population, were either overweight or obese globally in 2015. The rise in global obesity rates in the last few years has been widespread and become a major public health epidemic in both the developing and the developed countries. According to Institute for Health Matrics and Evaluation, The major proportion of the world’s that is around 13% obese people lived in the United States in 2015. China and India together account for 15% of the total obese population globally, according to the estimates of (NCBI) National Centre for Biotechnology Information.

Prebiotics are special fibres that contains a fermenting ingredient which are required by the human gut microbiota. Thus, helps in preventing the obesity or overweight among adults. Thus, the rising prevalence of gut related disorders is anticipated to increase the demand of prebiotics which helps in preventing and curing gut related diseases. This further positively impact the market of prebiotic ingredients in the forecast period.
