Owing to the health benefits related with the consumption of yogurt and its application in different delicacies, the market is expected to witness increased adoption in coming years. In addition, rising awareness among people for losing weight, expansion of retail market and lower or no lactose content are the main factors driving the growth of yogurt market, globally. On the other hand, addition of harmful additives & ingredients in yogurt to increase flavor options is posing threat to human health, thus restraining the growth of market.
Low Lactose Content Highly Contributing to the Growth of This Market
Milk and milk products commonly consist of a sugar called lactose which is digested by lactase enzyme in the human body. Lactase deficiency and lactose malabsorption can lead to a condition called ‘lactose intolerance’ among people. As per the National Library of Medicine (NLM), around 65% of the global human population has a decreased ability to digest lactose after infancy. Thus, people suffering from lactose intolerance look for dairy products with lower or no lactose content. Greek yogurt is mostly recommended for lactose intolerant people as it is strained multiple times for whey removal, giving it a creamy taste and lower lactose content. Thus, less or no content of lactose is contributing growth of this market.
