Region : Global | Report ID: FBI106068 | Status : Ongoing



The functional meat ingredients market is gaining significant traction globally due to the increasing demand among consumers for meat-based products. The use of functional meat ingredients helps extend the shelf life of the meat products, increase their sensory appeal, and ensure optimum utilization of food materials to create a sustainable food chain. These factors contribute in the growth of the global functional meat ingredients market.

The increasing demand for ready-to-eat meat-based food products and meals have created a demand for functional ingredients that enhance the shelf life of meat products. Additionally, the use of functional meat ingredients ensures that the quality of the products is not hampered. The rapid urbanization in some developing economies is allowing consumers to spend more on convenient and pre-packaged meals, which has supported the growth of the functional meat ingredients market globally.

When added to the meat, functional meat ingredients helps to improve its properties by enhancing the texture and structure of meat, thereby reducing waste production. These functional ingredients also help in speeding up the drying process of fermented meat products.

Companies are developing newer technologies to extract proteins and develop new functional ingredients that meet the increasing demand for natural functional ingredients.  In recent years, a biotechnology company developed a partnership with DSM to develop enzymes that improve the functionality of gut broilers and enable the farmers to increase the meat yield of chicken by more than 3%. It also helps to reduce the emission of CO2 at the same time. Similarly, functional meat proteins developed by Essentia minimizes the seepage of liquid from the meat and ensures that the pre-shaped products such as patties and meatballs are not spoiling. It also prevents the addition of further additives in meat and provides a stable color to the products.  

The changing lifestyle and awareness about the negative health effects caused due to the consumption of processed meat acts as one of the restraining factors for market growth.
