Sugar Reducing Ingredients Market Trends

  • A large pool of people suffering from cardiovascular disease as well as diabetes

The growing geriatric population coupled with the large pool of people suffering from cardiovascular disease as well as diabetes across the U.S. has increased the demand for sugar reducing ingredients owing to the health benefits provided by them. For example, according to the FDA, aspartame is a non-nutritive artificial sweetener that is 200 times sweeter than sugar. Sometimes, it is sold as Equal and NutraSweet in blue packets. Although aspartame is not zero-calorie like some other artificial sweeteners, it nevertheless has a low-calorie count. Furthermore, as part of this, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the United States, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both sexes and members of most racial and ethnic groups. In the United States, cardiovascular disease claims one life every 34 seconds. Almost 697,000 Americans died from heart disease in 2020, making up 1 in 5 fatalities in the country.

Furthermore, various initiatives were taken by organizations across the country to educate the patients suffering from chronic which in turn are likely to contribute to its overall market growth. For example, the Administration for Community Living provides Chronic Disease Self-Management Education (CDSME) programs which provide education and tools to help them better manage chronic conditions and age-related diseases including diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, chronic pain, as well as depression. Through competitive funds in the form of cooperation agreements, the Administration on Aging (AoA) has supported the dissemination of CDSME programs since 2003. Organizations eligible for grants include tribes, NGOs, universities, and local agencies on aging. Funds are utilized to expand, scale up, and maintain evidence-based CDSME activities. Under the terms of these grants, grantees are carrying out a range of initiatives, such as partnering with local health departments, hospitals, rural clinics, and area agencies on aging to deliver programs, focusing on self-management programs for people affected by chronic pain and opioid abuse, documenting health care cost savings through HIEs, and securing reimbursement from Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and Medicaid. Hence, such factors are likely to increase the demand for reduced sugar ingredients which in turn would boost its market growth in the upcoming years
