Key factors driving market growth

  • Production of dairy-based products to push the market

The primary factor driving market growth is the growing production of dairy-based products and meat and seafood and the rising demand for dairy products such as cheese, yogurt, and others. The starter cultures market size is expanding due to the growing awareness and an increasing number of manufacturers improving the market growth. The lowering of pH that occurs when bacteria ferment lactose into lactic acid has an antiseptic effect on the product while enhancing digestibility and nutritional value.

Cheese starter culture is composed primarily of thermophilic bacteria that support lactic acid production in the industrial production of cheese. Starter cultures market sales are soaring as acid production is a significant factor in expelling water from the curd and helps improve the quality and texture of the cheese produced. As a result, that part of the already fermented batch of sausages was thrown back into the new mix. This process is known as backslapping or back inoculation.
