Global Natural Cheese to Expand at Healthy Pace as Consumers Seek Natural and Healthy Alternatives

The global natural cheese market is forecasted to expand at an impressive rate during the forecast period (2017 to 2022), according to a new market study by XploreMR. The growth of the market is primarily driven by increasing health consciousness among consumers and the growing trend of veganism globally.

Furthermore, rising concerns regarding high levels of sodium in cheese and its adverse effects are asserting consumers to seek healthy alternatives, thereby fuelling the demand for natural cheese. On the back of these factors, the consumption of natural cheese has significantly increased in the recent past, and the market will progress on a profitable growth trajectory in the years to come.

Increasing Health Consciousness and Healthy Nutritional Composition of Natural Cheese Drive Demand

As a result of increased health consciousness, the popularity of emulsifiers and preservative-free cheese has witnessed a remarkable uptick. Consumers are now highly inclined towards healthy eating and are gradually moving away from cheese products produced from milk protein concentrates (MPCs). As an alternative, consumers are choosing traditional cheese produced from the milk of grass-fed cows, which has high A2 beta-casein and low A1 beta-casein, thus yielding health benefits.

The healthy nutritional composition will continue to drive the demand in the forthcoming years. Moreover, soaring demand for 'all-things non-dairy' amid growing veganism trend is also expected to fuel the growth of the market. On the other hand, restricted availability of natural cheese, especially in major distribution channels such as grocery stores are likely to hinder the growth to an extent. On a positive note, their availability in farmer's market, local artisan cheese shops, and 'deli' sections will continue to channel the revenue.

Guidelines by Regulatory Bodies and Rising Awareness Regarding Sodium Levels Shape Strategies

High levels of sodium in cheese are known to cause health complications such as hypertension, stroke, kidney diseases, and other issues. Increased awareness pertaining to adverse effects sodium is propelling the demand for low sodium food products. As sodium remains a vital ingredient in the final stages of cheese production, manufacturers are highly cautious of using minimal levels of sodium in the preparation process.

Furthermore, manufacturers are focusing on increasing the nutritional value of the final product by reducing the fat content of natural cheese. According to the guidelines issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), manufactures can claim to have 'reduced sodium' labels on their products only after lowering at least 25% of sodium levels. On this premise, market players are adhering to the safety and quality of their products, and to achieve the same, they are altering their production methods, introducing new safety and testing models.

Changing Consumer Preferences Push Manufactures to Opt for Innovative Packaging Solutions

Surging demand for ready-to-eat and specialty products has boosted the need for innovative packing and new product development. To meet the nutritional and labeling guidelines, market players are introducing effective packaging that helps consumers to evaluate the nutritional content. Novel packaging innovations and designs include press-to-close openings, sliders, reclosable zippers, and straight-tear scoring, that ensure easy-access and extend the shelf life of these products.
