report has been added to's

The global fat replacer market is estimated to register a CAGR of about
6.5% during 2018-2023.

The rising awareness regarding health issues among consumers is making
them change their dietary habits and eat less amount of fat. Therefore,
owing to these reasons, fat replacers have a huge market opportunity.

Increased Risk of Obesity

At present, fat replacer is a boon for the society, as the high fat
intake can lead to obesity and cause cancer, high-blood cholesterol, or
coronary heart disease. The rising demand for low-calorie and low-fat
diet is identified as one of the primary growth factors for the fat
replacer market. By choosing these alternative food options,
health-conscious consumers can maintain their basic food selection
pattern and easily adhere to a low-fat diet.

The World Health Organization recommends that the total fat intake
should be less than 30% of the total calories and the saturated fat
should not exceed 10% of the total calories. Each gram of fat contains
nearly 9 calories, when compared to protein or carbohydrates that
contain 4 calories per gram. Consumers are, thus, moving toward fat
replacer as a popular approach to low-calorie diet.

Fat replacers do not compare well with the flavor of their full-fat
counterparts, which can be a major restraint to the market. A majority
of fat replacers is 'Generally Recognized As Safe' (GRAS).
Health-conscious consumers are seeking the long-term impact of consuming
fat-replacers; however, the possible toxicological traits associated
with its excessive consumption, like Ketogenesis, is a hurdle in the
growth of fat replacer market.
