  • F&B industry accounts for the largest share of the global demand for fortified yeast

Insights into Segmentation Analysis

Vitamin B Takes the Lead as a Fortification Powerhouse

The vitamin B category reigns supreme in the fortified yeast market.

With its rich content of B vitamins like thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and B12, fortified yeast plays a crucial role in energy production, metabolism, and nervous system function.

As consumers become more informed about the importance of these vitamins, the demand for fortified yeast is likely to climb further.

Iron Fortification Emerges as a New Frontier

The iron fortification segment is poised for the fastest growth within the forecast period.

Iron deficiency remains a global public health concern, impacting billions of people worldwide.

Fortified yeast presents a safe and effective solution, particularly for individuals with limited dietary iron intake.

Powder Form Continues to be Favoured

The powder form of fortified yeast currently dominates the market due to its versatility.

It will continue to reign supreme as convenience wins the trend race.

Easily incorporated into smoothies, soups, baked goods, cereals, and various other food and beverage items, powdered yeast offers unmatched convenience for consumers.

F&B Consumes Fortified Yeast as a Staple Ingredient

The food and beverage industry remains the primary consumer of fortified yeast.

Brewer's yeast and nutritional yeast are the two most popular varieties, among which the former finds its way into bread and beer production, while the latter serves as a popular food additive and dietary supplement.

Dietary Supplements on the Rise

The dietary supplements segment is expected to witness the fastest growth in the coming years.

Nutritional yeast, available in tablets, flakes, and powder forms, is gaining traction as a convenient way to boost nutrient intake.

Its presence in fortified beverages, baked goods, and breakfast cereals further expands its reach within the dietary supplement category.

Key Report Highlights

  • The burgeoning popularity of plant-based diets is a strong growth driver of this market. With meat consumption on the decline, individuals seeking alternatives are turning to plant-based proteins. However, these diets can often lack essential nutrients like Vitamin B12. Fortified yeast steps in as a potent source of this vital vitamin, making it a staple for vegans and vegetarians.
  • The market is likely to explore new opportunities as the demand for high-quality premium yeast products ascends.
