Transglutaminase Market | demand growth analysis

As per the latest study by Persistence Market Research, the transglutaminase market is set to witness growth at a value CAGR of 7.4% over the forecast period of 2021 to 2031, thereby increasing 2X.

Growing market for gluten-free foods represents an important target group of consumers – people who are interested in products that adhere to clean-label standards. However, manufacturing gluten-free baked goods according to the clean label concept is extremely difficult, as gluten-free raw materials demonstrate poor baking properties. Additives such as β-glucan, psyllium, or transglutaminase are required to simulate the texturing properties of gluten.

According to research by the Institute of Fermentation Technology and Microbiology, it has been demonstrated that transglutaminase not only affects protein structure but also the rheological and viscoelastic properties of dough, enhancing gluten strength. As a consequence, gas retention, dough stability, as well as volume and bread structure are improved. Moreover, bread crumbs are also strengthened. Thus, transglutaminase has an impact on dough water absorption, viscoelastic behavior, and thermal stability.

Emulsifiers are commonly added to bakery goods, including bread, cakes, and cookies. These can be plant- or animal-based or commercially produced. Presence of emulsifiers in high-volume baking is essential to keep the quality of baked goods consistent throughout the entire process. Since the main function of an emulsifier is to stabilize the food system, any ingredient that can accomplish this function has the potential to replace a specific emulsifier. Transglutaminase and hydrocolloids are common emulsifier alternatives owing to their natural and functional properties, which can play a vital role in the making of clean-label food products.
