Fortified Rice Market Overview
Fortified Rice Market size is estimated to reach $28.4 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Rice fortification can be delineated as a cost-effective complementary strategy of enhancing the nutritional content of rice through the addition of essential micronutrients such as ascorbate calcium, vitamin B12, iron, and folic acid aimed at solving malnutritional problems in a particular population. Rice is categorized into different varieties and is known for its nutrient-rich nature. For instance, black rice is home to proteins, fibers, carbs, antioxidants, and anthocyanins; however, too often they lose their nutrient content because of infertile soil, and inherent efficiencies. Therefore, food fortification has become one of the prominent ways for international agencies like the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) to combat the problem of nutrient deficiency across the globe. Cereal grain fortification has emerged as a potential alternative to dietary supplements as it extends several advantages like cost-effectiveness, intact taste, source of multiple nutrients, and negligible behavior alteration on consumption. Jaw-dropping rice consumption worldwide, spiking government measures, rising health attentiveness among people, widescale presence of malnutrition in several Asian and African countries, ameliorating distribution channels in developing nations, and expanding disposable incomes are factors set to drive the growth of the Fortified Rice Market for the period 2022-2027.
