Tocopherols are plant-derived antioxidants that find extensive applications in food processing industry – apart from enhancing the nutritional profiles of the food matrices in which they are utilised, they are also known to significantly extend shelf-life, minimise colour and flavour degradation, and support consumer-friendly label claims. With the increasing demand for functional food products that add specific health benefits, tocopherols demand is projected to rise significantly during the forecast period. Consumers are preferring the tocopherols derived from non-GMO, non-soy, and organic versions. Dairy and confectionery are the two largest fortified/function food product groups driving the demand for tocopherol ingredients.

The global market for tocopherols is driven primarily by the robust demands for natural preservatives from food processors and manufacturers. This trend is essentially due to the growing inclination towards a diet-based approach for the overall health benefits in general and anti-aging benefits in particular.

The natural oxidants in the global marketplace are plenty. Right from lecithin, rosemary extract, to ascorbic acid, food processors are equipped with different natural additives however tocopherols are highly popular and preferable option owing to their availability, ease of extraction and processing. The application of tocopherols in fats and oils is also one of the driving factors for its sales performance. The utilization of genetically modified (GM) raw materials for the extraction of tocopherols is expected to hamper the sustainable growth of the market, this also drastically affects the business interests of organic processors and certifying bodies. The label claims that consumers are seeking in food products then becomes vague and non-confirming. The growing supply-demand imbalance for natural antioxidants and consequent price fluctuations is expected to negatively affect the global tocopherols market.
