(Food-Beverage-News.Com, October 12, 2018 ) Demand for egg white peptide continues to gain momentum as primary animal-based protein worldwide, depicting great promise as rich source of bioactive peptides that improve human health. Identification of these peptides illustrates greater commercialization opportunity in light of their significance as the health promoting food ingredients. Preventing and treating microbial infections of gastrointestinal tract, extending shelf-life of foods, and controlling foods’ & feeds’ microbiological quality are key application areas where egg peptides witness considerable penetration. Future outlook for the global egg white peptide market is foreseen to be promising, with an estimated 13.8% value CAGR in the forecast period (2018-2028). Approximately 43,680 kgs of egg white peptide are estimated to be sold worldwide by 2028-end.
Challenges prevail in the global egg white peptide market, with concerns regarding animal welfare utilizing the conventional cage system, and rising prices of feed in combination with employment of renewable agricultural products for replacing highly expensive fossil-based fuels & chemicals. However, collaborative efforts being taken by the community, industry, researchers, international organizations, and government, for addressing issues related to animal health & welfare, environment, and cost of production are likely to rub off on product development and innovation in the near future.
Egg White Proteins – A Precursor for Production of Bioactive Peptides
Maintaining cardiovascular health is an imperative challenge faced by consumers worldwide, which is gaining greater emphasis on account of pandemics such as diabetes and obesity. Egg white proteins are deemed as potential precursors for bioactive peptide production. Various biological activities, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial activities, have been illustrated by egg white protein-derived bioactive peptides.
Egg white proteins have further been linked with physiological benefits by in vitro simulated gastrointestinal digestion, in light of the multifunctional peptides released. Natural product-based, egg white protein-derived bioactive peptides are being developed by manufacturers, which demonstrate promising effects on vascular health maintenance in animal studies and in vitro experiments.
Leading producers of egg white peptides are focused toward securing regulatory health claims. Key market participants are employing new approaches for maintaining vascular health by integrating medical care, specialized nutrition, and early diagnostics, in a bid to offer more effective products that promise improved life quality for consumers.
Emphasis of Medical Research on Peptides to Augur Well for Egg White Peptides Development
All types of peptides illustrate the attribute of mimicking behavior of natural ligands – substances that interact with receptors/enzymes/cells for aiding biological processes, and egg white peptides are no exception. Egg white peptides have been perceived to show insulin sensitizing and mimetic effects in the 3T3-F442A pre-adipocytes. Additionally, several studies demonstrate the budding of bioactive peptides derived from egg white ovotransferrin in managing inflammation, hypertension, and oxidative stress in vivo and in vitro.
These attributes have further enabled drugs derived from peptides in targeting diseases with more precision and fewer side effects compared to small-molecule drugs. Peptides are becoming the future of medical research and drug development in light of their selectiveness, higher potency, and more safety. This will further rub off on the development and demand for egg white peptides in the forthcoming years.
