Market Report Description

The Europe Gelatin Substitutes Market would witness market growth of 6.1% CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2028).

Pectin is used in medicine to thicken and increase the volume of stools, which helps treat constipation and diarrhea. Until 2002, pectin and kaolinite were two of the critical components of the diarrhea treatment medication Kaopectate. Pectin has also been applied to remove heavy metals from biological systems.

Additionally, pectin serves as a demulcent in throat lozenges. It is also used as a prominent stabilizer in cosmetic goods, colostomy devices, specialty medical adhesives, and preparations for wound healing. The galactomannan polysaccharide known as guar gum, also known as guaran, is obtained from guar beans and possesses thickening and stabilizing qualities that are helpful in feed, food, and various industrial applications.

Guar gum is used as a thickening ingredient in both human and animal food and medication. It is used as an addition to switching out wheat flour in baked items because it is gluten-free. It has been demonstrated to lower blood sugar levels and serum cholesterol. Guar gum is also cost-effective because only a tiny amount is required to produce a sufficient viscosity. It has a water-thickening capacity that is almost eight times more than other agents (such as cornflour). Therefore, most manufacturers utilize guar gum in production processes as it offers a cost-effective solution.

In the UK, gelatin substitutes are frequently used to create low-calorie sweets and pieces of bread without starch. Gelatin substitutes are gaining popularity because they are a non-nutritive bulking agent with less than 0.2% fat, wash out harmful residues, and reduce cholesterol absorption. As per the E-406 regulation of the European Community, agar is regarded as the healthiest hydrocolloid on the market and is a permitted ingredient. For better gelling results than gelatin, it can be used in place of or in addition to pectin in jams and marmalades. It can also be used as a strengthening agent in custards and souffles. Agar-agar is also used in the traditional Russian dessert ptich'ye moloko (or bird's milk), which is a decadent jellified custard used as a filling for cakes as individual desserts with chocolate frosting. The gelatin substitutes market has also grown as a result of rising chocolate consumption among teenagers in this country and increased consumer understanding of baking components.
