USA Food Acidulants Market Research Analysis 2021-2026:
The USA Food Acidulants Market is foreseen to record steady growth with an annual development rate of 7.6% over the projection period (2021-2026).
Acidulants are among the prominent food additives that have major application in the food and beverage sector and are also growing rapidly. Acidulants helps to stabilize the overall pH level in the foods and to improve their shelf life. In addition to regulating pH levels, they also act as a gelling agent. They are known to infuse a unique flavor to carbonated drinks, jams and sauces.

In November 2018, TorQuest Partners published about its purchase of Bartek Ingredients Inc. a specialty chemical manufacturer. Bartek offers its services in more than 35 countries across the world with two major manufacturing units in Ontario, Canada.
Market Drivers and Restraints:
Citric acid occupies the majority of the studied market, since citric acid is one of the most important acidulants purchased by American food manufacturers, due to its role as an additive in the production of products such as yogurt, cold cuts and soft drinks. Wide reach in the food and beverage industry, combined with the variety of functional benefits provided by food acidulants, are key factors that stimulate the market for food acidulants in the country. The most commonly used acidulant is citric acid which is naturally derived. All leading companies such as Tate & Lyle PLC., Archer Daniels Midland Company and others supply citric acid to the USA market.
The USA Food Acidulants market is analyzed on the basis of different types as acetic acid, lactic acid, citric acid, malic acid, phosphoric acid, and others. Citric acid is the most widely used acid in the food and beverage industry. The citric acid segment is likely to exceed $ 2.5 billion by 2025 as it is a typical acid regulator because of its features like solubility and nature. The dominant use of acidulants in soft drink manufacturing as a flavor enhancer due to its compelling characteristics, including a slightly acidic and refreshing taste and balance sweetened in soft drinks, should promote the growth of the acid regulator market. Dietary acidulants are supposed to increase more than $ 600 million by 2025, which is anticipated to promote this industry growth in the coming years.
The increasing demand for acidulants due to functional attributes such as taste improvement, pH control, preservation, chelating agent and antimicrobials is expected to drive the growth of the acidity regulator market in time. The intensive use of the acid regulator, including lactic and phosphoric acid in sauces and dressings to limit the growth of decomposing organisms and the delay in the activity of the enzymes involved in the fruit discolorations, supporting the expansion of the acidulants industry. By type, citric acid has almost 70% of its application in the F&B sector, whereas 30% used in other industries.
Impact of covid-19 on USA Food Acidulants Market
COVID-19 will continue to impact the global food and beverage industry and its supply chains. Meeting short-term demands shouldn't be a major challenge for most companies in the food industry, but industry experts and analysts have expressed a lack of clarity on the degree and extent of the impact sprouts. Many companies have already implemented contingency plans to build in-depth supply chain facilities across the globe. Food retailers remain committed to preserving local supplies to combat the danger of interregional transportation bans. Food manufacturers begun working with local suppliers to assist products movement and overcome ingredient shortages. There will surely be lasting changes in the way we live, work, and eat after we overcome the coronavirus pandemic. The F&B culture that had flourished over the past decades will have to see new challenges with the slowdown of the virus, such as recovering from losses and a preference for ordering food online.
In the United States, consumption of carbonated drinks, energy drinks, and juices is constantly increasing, triggering the use of acidulants in the beverage industries. Since carbonated beverages are rich in water activity and some of them are rich in vitamins and minerals, they create an attractive environment for microbes. Therefore, acidulants act as preservatives in drinks, including fruit-flavored drinks. Phosphoric acid is also a major contributor to the beverage segment due to its wide application in cola beverages. To protect the use of phosphoric acid in the food and beverage industry, the United States Food and Drug Administration cites Regulation 21/3, which recognizes phosphoric acid as safe when used in accordance with good manufacturing practices. Thus, acting as a growth engine of the market studied.
