(Food-Beverage-News.Com, November 14, 2019 ) According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Sweet Spreads Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global sweet spreads market size experienced steady growth during 2013-2018. Sweet spreads are generally added to baked wheat products, such as bread and pancakes, to enhance their flavor and texture. Traditionally, sweet spreads were a part of western cuisines; however, with rapid globalization, they have become a staple across the globe. They can be made using a wide range of ingredients, including fruits, coffee beans, argan nut oil, honey, nuts, eggs, sugar and coconut cream. Owing to the availability of numerous flavors, sweet spreads are used in the preparation of dips, cakes, puddings, smoothies, ice creams and salad dressings.
The hectic and busy lifestyles of consumers, especially youngsters, have led to the increasing demand for quick and healthy breakfast options. Along with this, the rising health-consciousness among consumers has prompted the leading companies to introduce sweet spreads fortified with antioxidants and vitamins. The addition of these elements improves the nutritional profile of the products, which helps in managing stress, maintaining weight, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Manufacturers have also launched organic and natural sweet spreads made without any preservatives or artificial ingredients. In addition to this, sweet spreads are nowadays available in innovative packaging formats, such as handheld pouches or squeezable packs, which are convenient for on-the-go consumption. Moreover, many international food brands are tailoring their products according to regional tastes, preferences and cultural influences to broaden their customer base. Looking forward, the market value is projected to expand at a CAGR of 3% during the forecast period of 2019-2024.
