Author : Rahul Sankrityayan | Published Date : 2019-04-04 

The growing concern among health-conscious consumers towards nutritional value of food has reinforced the citrus based dietary fibers market, in conjunction with the observed rise in general consumer spending. A range of benefits such as the gelling, thickening, moisture enhancing, and water binding properties of these substances has made them suitable for processed food products such as jams, confectioneries and meat. Being sourced mostly from fruits, these are available in the nature in ample quantities and some are even potent in countering the risks associated with aging, obesity and smoking, extending the citrus based dietary fibers industry scope.

As such, substances such as pectin have found their way into various medicines and research studies aimed at treating different ailments. The advancements in healthcare technology meant for developing effective therapeutic medicines and drug delivery systems are expected to drive the global citrus based dietary fibers market, which in 2017 had garnered a valuation of over USD 1.2 billion.

Pectin as a suitable citrus based dietary ingredient for pharmaceutical applications:

Developing cancer medications

It has been established that most allopathic treatments for cancer did not consider the role of communication or signaling between cancer cells in tumor metastasis, resulting in increased development of secondary tumors in a patient’s body. In this regard, it is prudent to mention that citrus based dietary fibers market will gain traction in oncology, as modified citrus pectin has exhibited the characteristic of interfering with cancer cell signaling without hampering the path of healthy cell communications. Ongoing investigations into treatment of cancers, including colon cancer, involve the use of pectin along with other substances due to its absorption abilities. A study recently initiated is targeting the reduction of negative impacts of chemotherapy, using curcumin obtained from turmeric, packaged in a manner so as to attack only affected cells.

Diabetes and Cholesterol

Apart from the traditional use of pectin to produce the thick, spreadable characteristic of jams, jellies and other food, the substance has been greatly accepted by medical communities for treating diabetes, high cholesterol and triglycerides. These advantages are in addition to the solubility of the fiber which helps to regulate digestion and is one of reasons due to which daily consumption of pectin-containing fruits is recommended. The citrus based dietary fibers industry has indeed garnered considerable traction on account of research institutes attempting to develop better treatment alternatives for diabetes patients. Scientists have pointed out that pectin assists in slowing down the absorption of sugars and carbs, preventing blood sugar spikes that elevate glucose intolerance and diabetes.

Reliable data shows that in 2014, the number of people worldwide who had diabetes had reached 422 million, whereas in 2015 about 1.6 million deaths were directly attribute to the disease. Diabetes is a leading cause of heart attacks, kidney failure, blindness and limp amputation, and helping to treat the same is certain to boost the citrus based dietary fibers market share from pharmaceutical applications. Further, studies have revealed that pectin, which is known to be water soluble, binds cholesterol in the gut and does not allow its absorption into the bloodstream. With drug manufacturers looking to incorporate pectin sourced from fruits and vegetables into medications for lowering cholesterol, the citrus based dietary fibers industry is set to witness augmented demand in the coming years.

The American Cancer Society has estimated that in 2018, about 97,220 new cases of colon cancer will be reported in the U.S. Presenting an innovative headway for the growth of the citrus based dietary fibers market, the development of the curcumin-based delivery system for colon cancer will be achieved by having an admixture of curcumin, pectin and chitosan weaved into nanoparticles. The nanoparticles are capable of recognizing colon cancer cells and can penetrate the cancer tissue, carrying the curcumin mixture along. As per the study, modified citrus pectin has anticancer properties and will assist in reinforcing the effects of curcumin.

The global citrus based dietary fibers industry size from pectin was pegged at a remarkable USD 850 million in 2017, and is expected to garner substantial remuneration ahead, primarily driven by the product’s demand from pharmaceutical applications. The use of food grade pectin in dietary supplements for weight loss, in food items for providing quality texture and in dairy products will further propel the citrus based dietary fibers industry share, slated to cross USD 1.5 billion by 2024.
