Fat replacers are non-fat ingredients or substances that play the role of fat in food products, without compromising with the texture and flavor of food, and are considered safe for human consumption. Carbohydrate-based, lipid-based, and protein-based are the three type of fat replacers that are widely used in manufacturing various food products, such as cakes, dairy products, beverages, sauces, and others.

Increasing number of health-conscious population is boosting the demand for low-fat diet, which in turn is anticipated to aid the growth of fat replacers market. Rising prevalence of cardiovascular disorders, high blood pressure, obesity, and other diseases is motivating people across the globe to switch to a low-fat diet which is anticipated to fuel the demand for fat replacers in food products. Furthermore, increasing governmental support to fat replacers and launch of campaigns by food & health regulatory bodies to reduce the fat content from food and beverage products is expected to fuel the market growth.

Consumption of excessive fat replacers can lead to adverse health effects, which is a major restraining factor for the growth of fat replacers market. Furthermore, the inability of most of the fat replacers to mimic 100% properties of fat and copy their sensory properties that give food a certain desirable flavor and texture is anticipated to hinder the fat replacers market growth in the upcoming years.
