Food Stabilizer Market is expected to be Flourished by Introduction of Clean Label Products

The global food stabilizer market includes a wide range of food ingredients such as pectin, carrageenan, xanthan gum, gelatin, agar, carboxymethyl cellulose, and others that are added to processed food products to stabilize texture and consistency. These stabilizers help enhance the taste, mouthfeel, and visual appeal of foods without altering their nutritional value. They are commonly used in bakery, confectionery, dairy, beverage, convenience foods, and other processed food applications. Food stabilizers help extend the shelf-life of products by preventing ingredients from separating or sedimentation.

The stabilizer market is estimated to be valued at US$ 9.5 Billion in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.9% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
