Non-dairy creamer fats are the primary ingredients in the non-dairy creamers derived from hydrogenated vegetable oils. Manufacturers in the non-dairy creamer fats industry are using premium-grade fat replacers made using hydrogenated vegetable oils for non-dairy creamer applications. The availability of a wide range of fats with varying melting points provides an array of fat replacers as per the desired application. Hydrogenated vegetable oil is majorly utilized in the food processing industry, followed by the cosmetic & personal care industry and the pharmaceutical industry. In the food industry, hydrogenated vegetable oils are used widely for baking, pan-frying and deep-frying in processed foods, dairy and chocolate products. In the dairy sector, non-dairy creamer fats are used as substitute fats in coffee whiteners and skim milk powders.
Globally, the market for non-dairy creamer fats is likely to be driven by the growing vegan population and the rising prevalence of lactose intolerance & milk allergies worldwide. Today, almost 70% of the world population is lactose intolerant and thus, the demand for plant-based fat ingredients is expected to increase during the forecasted period.
Non-dairy creamer fats serve as the major ingredient in non-dairy creamers and the degree of hydrogenation alters some of the physical properties of these creamers, which define the overall taste & nutrient profile. The market for non-dairy creamers witnesses high demand from the HoReCa sector (Hotels, Restaurants, and Cafés) and residential end-use. The rising demand for non-dairy creamers has surged the demand for non-dairy creamer fats among manufacturers globally.
