Global Soluble Fiber Market: Snapshot

Soluble fibers are a crucial component of the dietary fiber or roughage, which is the indigestible portion of food that has been derived from plants. Soluble fiber, as the name suggests, gets dissolved in water and is then fermented in the colon portion. This fermentation process converts the fiber into gases and other by-products which are psychologically active. Soluble fiber can be prebiotic as well as viscous, which often causes a delay in releasing pressure from the digestive system. Thus, the presence of soluble fiber is primarily responsible for humans to feel full for an extended time after having food.

Some types of soluble fibers can absorb water, after which they form a highly viscous and gelatinous substance. This viscous material might experience fermentation through bacteria in the digestive tract. The main use of soluble fibers is to maintain proper functioning of the digestive tract, especially when absorption of nutrients and chemicals takes place. Some of the prime soluble fiber types are inulin, pectin, arabinoylan, fructans, sodium alginate, alginic acids, calcium alginate, ammonimum alginate, agar, xylose, carrageen, and others.                                        

Soluble fiber is found in differing amounts in several plant foods such as oats, legumes, barley, root tubers, ripe bananas, avocados, plums, almonds, broccoli, Jerusalem artichokes, apple skins rye, and others. With such an extensive presence of these fibers, a distinct soluble fibers market exists from a global perspective.

This market is mainly being driven by a rising awareness among the masses regarding the benefits of soluble fibers, thus causing an increase in demand for foods rich in them. These fibers are rapidly witnessing extensive research and development from food scientists, who properly integrate them into various foods. In the upcoming future, the global soluble fibers market is certainly expected to grow rampantly owing to increased consumption of foods rich in these substances.
