|Global Nutritional Lipids Market Powered by Changing Preferences for Alternative Sources, 2020|
|The Future Growth Potential Of Nutritional Lipids Market is Enhanced by Growth Opportunities in Omega-3 and Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT)|
The concept of lipids has undergone a paradigm shift over the years. Initially, lipids (oils and fats) were considered as all ‘evil’ and were often blamed to be only a cause of cardiovascular and other chronic diseases. However, with the concept of nutritional lipids, this notion has changed. Nutritional lipids are the category of lipids that provide health benefits owing to their composition. This study aims to provide the overview of different types of nutritional lipids: omega-3, medium chain triglycerides (MCT), omega-6 (arachidonic acid or ARA), and phytosterols.
Growing consumer awareness regarding the health benefits of nutritional lipids and increasing prevalence of cardiovascular and other lifestyle-related diseases are leading to increasing realization of preventive healthcare approaches by the general population to avoid excessive healthcare expenditure. This is driving the growth of the global nutritional lipids market. Presence of major market participants in the nutritional lipids space also widens application scope through innovative technologies and research and developments related to the market.
