Sodium Bicarbonate Food Grade Market Drivers
The exponential growth in the food and beverages segment has allowed the market to grow exponentially
Sodium Bicarbonate or baking soda has been actively used across the food and beverages segment. Within the segment/industry sodium bicarbonate has been a leaving agent which allows various doughs to expand-rise- and become light or porous at the same time, by increasing the overall surface area. Furthermore, food processors and manufacturers and other artisanal bakeries have been long-using such ingredients owing to their functional stability and chemical properties. In countries where work-life balance doesn’t exist, fast foods are extensively used, which ultimately allows for the sale of precooked food, having amounts of sodium bicarbonate. The extensive use of sodium bicarbonate can be tracked or associated with the growth of any end-user company or industry. For example, Dominos, a leading chain of pizza makers have seen exponential growth in revenues across the world, as it saw an increment of 19% from 2018 to 2020, further the figure shows how the industries remained unaffected by supply chain barriers owing to COVID-19, thereby assisting in the useful sales of sodium bicarbonate.
The exhibiting properties of baking soda as a natural antacid have allowed it to be used as a medicinal option.
Baking soda or sodium bicarbonate has been regarded as a natural antacid, and if one dissolves around a teaspoon of the said compound with eight ounces of water, it can help in relieving and neutralizing stomach acids while also averting heartburn caused by acid reflux. GERD or Gastrointestinal Reflux Disease has been regarded as the most common upper gastrointestinal disorder which has been observed in the elderly. Researchers have further estimated that GERD affects close to 20% of the people in the US, and the numbers are bound to grow owing to the aging aspects of society. As for now, there are close to 46 million seniors living in the said region, which are ought to increase and touch 90 million by 2050. The medicinal use of food-grade sodium bicarbonate would help in alleviating local GERD symptoms.
The limiting aspect of causing ill-medical side effects to having hampered the overall growth
Sodium bicarbonate has been actively used as a natural antacid by people across the globe, however, it goes without saying that baking soda has certain disadvantages to human health, if consumed above the tolerable level. An overload of sodium bicarbonate can ultimately result in increasing the cases of vomiting and diarrhea, as well as more serious problems like seizures and kidney failure. Chronic kidney disease affects every 1 in 7 Americans or around 15% of the entire US population is suspected to develop CKD in their lifetime. Owing to such factors, the market’s growth is impeded.
