As consumers become more and more health conscious, the demand for nutraceutical products is expected to increase in response. In fact, according to Transparency Market Research, the global nutraceuticals market is expanding at a compound annual growth rate of 7.3% from 2015 to 2021. This expected growth only solidifies the importance for manufacturers to streamline their nutraceutical packaging solutions to meet those demands.
But before we get any further into packaging, let’s take a look into the buzz word that’s getting so much attention lately: nutraceutical products.
Nutraceutical products are food or food-based products that not only supplement but are also believed to provide extra medical and health benefits to their users. They are typically classified as functional foods, functional beverages, dietary supplements and personal care.
Such goods can include things like various single nutrient vitamins, dietary or nutritional supplements, herbal products, and pre-made products such as energy drinks, detoxifying soups, and fortified cereals to which vitamins, minerals, or other healthy substances have been added.
On the basis of revenue, functional food, such as branded wheat flour, fortified food, probiotics, omegas, etc., is the largest product segment in the global nutraceuticals market. Demand for functional beverages and dietary supplements is also expected to increase considerably.
