Dublin, July 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Prebiotics Ingredients Market by Type (Oligosaccharides, Inulin, Polydextrose & Others), Application (Food & Beverage, Dietary Supplements & Animal Feed), Source (Vegetables, Grains & Roots), and by Region - Global Trends & Forecast to 2020" report to their offering.

The prebiotic ingredients market is projected to reach $5,545.74 million by 2020

The global demand for dairy products is on the rise. Rise in disposable incomes, changing lifestyles, and increasing health awareness are the main reasons for the increasing demand for food & beverage products. The growing concerns for sugar and fat free products resulted in an increased consumption in the processed food industry. This growing demand for diary products has resulted in an increased demand for food & beverage applications of prebiotic ingredients.

The past few decades have seen an alarming increase in morbidity and mortality due to poor nutrition. Growing number of consumers are looking up to companies manufacturing prebiotics due to increasing instances of obesity, gastrointestinal disorders, diabetes, coronary diseases, cancer, and other diseases related to bones, skin, and immunity. Consumption of the prebiotic ingredient-based products can help counter such diseases as they can be introduced into the human gut through various food products, enabling the beneficial bacteria to flourish and multiply to enhance human health. Also the animal feed segment is expected to witness a fast growth on account of the increasing use of prebiotic ingredients in animal feed to enhance the overall health and metabolism of pets and animals.
