Transglutaminase Market is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 7.4% Over the Forecast Period 2021 to 2031: Persistence Market Research

The growing market for gluten-free foods represents an important target group of consumers – people interested in products that meet clean labeling standards. However, the production of gluten-free bakery products according to the clean label concept is extremely difficult, since gluten-free raw materials have poor baking properties. Additives such as β-glucan, psyllium or transglutaminase are needed to simulate the texturizing properties of gluten.

According to research conducted by the Institute of Fermentation Technology and Microbiology, transglutaminase has been shown to affect not only protein structure, but also the rheological and viscoelastic properties of dough, thereby improving gluten strength. As a result, gas retention, dough stability, and bread volume and structure are improved. In addition, the breadcrumbs are also reinforced. Thus, transglutaminase has an impact on dough water absorption, viscoelastic behavior and thermal stability.

Emulsifiers are commonly added to baked goods, including bread, cakes, and cookies. These can be of plant or animal origin or commercially produced. The presence of emulsifiers in high-volume baking is essential to keep the quality of baked goods consistent throughout the process. Since the main function of an emulsifier is to stabilize the food system, any ingredient capable of performing this function has the potential to replace a specific emulsifier. Transglutaminase and hydrocolloids are common alternatives to emulsifiers due to their natural and functional properties, which can play a vital role in manufacturing clean label food products.
