The increase in consumption of processed food
Rise in the consumption of processed food is one of the major factors driving the growth of the demand for antioxidants. Demand for processed food or ultra-processed food has increased dramatically across the globe in recent years. Saturated fats, carbohydrates, total fats, free sugars and sodium are high in the packaged food products available on the market and poor in basic nutrients such as nutrition, proteins, vitamins and potassium.
