Functional Flour Market Growth

Functional flour is a speciality flour, which involves hydro-thermal treatment during its production. It is used for making premium food products and offers extended health benefits commonly excluded in plain flour. These flours are produced from rice, maize, barley, millets, chickpea, oat, and wheat and are used extensively in the food and beverage industry.

 

The global market for functional flour is growing due to the increasing demand for gluten-free and high-nutrition food. This is due to the rise in incidence of celiac disease and the popularity of clean label trends in the baked goods sector. Additionally, the growing awareness about the ingredients used in food, particularly non-wheat flours such as soy, rye, and oat, is fostering functional flour market expansion.

 

Key Trends and Developments

Shift towards gluten-free and allergen-free diets and growing demand for nutrient-rich and fortified flours are key trends boosting the functional flour market growth

 

May 2024

GoodMills Innovation has developed SMART Wheat, a high-protein flour, which improves the consistency of baked goods by efficiently compensating for quality fluctuations in wheat flour.

 

March 2021

Ingredion became the first ingredient supplier to manufacture sustainable plant-based protein, concentrate, flour, and starch products in North America from its state-of-the-art plant protein facility. The products are made from peas, lentils, and fava beans.

 

May 2020

Ingredion signed an exclusive commercial agreement with quinoa flour producer NorQuin to expand its plant-based protein ingredients portfolio. The partnership expedited the development of quinoa-based offerings and providing food manufacturers with a wider range of high-quality flours.

 

Shift towards gluten-free and allergen-free diets

The functional flour market is witnessing a significant trend towards gluten-free and allergen-free diets. This shift is driven by the growing awareness of gluten-related disorders and the increasing prevalence of food allergies. Functional flours derived from rice, almond, and corn are gaining popularity in this context.

 

Growing demand for nutrient-rich and fortified flours

Another key trend influencing the functional flour market development is the growing demand for nutrient-rich and fortified flours that offer higher fibre and protein content. Functional flours derived from legumes and ancient grains, such as chickpea flour and quinoa flour are becoming popular due to this trend.

 

Increased focus on convenient and versatile food ingredients

Consumers are seeking flours that can be easily incorporated into their daily diets and offer a range of uses. Functional flours, such as all-purpose flour and self-rising flour are widely used in baking, cooking, and even as a thickening agent.

 

Growing importance of sustainability

Functional flours derived from sustainable sources are gaining popularity as they are produced using environmentally friendly methods and have a lower carbon footprint. Organic wheat flour and non-GMO corn flour are becoming popular choices among environmentally conscious consumers.

 

Functional Flour Market Trends

The market is also driven by the rising demand for premium food products, initiatives to promote functional flours, and increasing consumption of convenience and healthy food products. The surge in usage of functional flour by manufacturers of ready-to-eat bread items and other food companies is also shaping the functional flour market outlook.

 

Furthermore, the growing awareness of the importance of a balanced diet and the need for healthier food options has prompted manufacturers to develop flours that are enriched with vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients. For instance, some manufacturers are fortifying their flours with iron, folic acid, and zinc to address specific nutritional deficiencies.

Functional Flour Market Share

Flours made with grains, such as wheat are high in demand due to their ease of application in various food items

The grains segment dominates the market, accounting for the largest share, and includes flours derived from various cereal grains. Wheat flour is the most widely used functional flour, owing to its versatility and high gluten content, which provides structure to baked goods. Rice flour is another popular functional flour, particularly among consumers with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease, as it is naturally gluten-free and can be used in a variety of applications, including gluten-free baked goods, pasta, and noodles.

 

As per functional flour market analysis, corn flour is also gaining traction as it is a good source of carbohydrates and can be used to add texture to food products. Meanwhile, legume-based flours, such as chickpea flour and pea flour, are also emerging as a rapidly growing category in the market due to their inherent nutritional benefits, including high protein content, dietary fibre, and essential vitamins and minerals. These flours cater to the rising interest in gluten-free and allergen-free options while aligning with the broader trend of plant-based diets.

 

Baking and confectionery industry holds a significant market share due to rising demand for healthier bakery products

The baking and confectionery industry plays a pivotal role in propelling the functional flour market growth as functional flours find extensive applications in this sector. From bread and pastries to cookies and cakes, oat, ragi, and multi-grain flours are incorporated by manufacturers to augment the fiber, protein, and micronutrient content. As consumers seek healthier bakery alternatives without compromising on taste and texture, the demand for functional flours in bakery and confectionery applications is anticipated to rise.

 

The food processing industry is another significant segment in the functional flour market.
