Clean label ingredients are natural and minimally processed ingredients that do not contain artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. They mainly include colors and flavors from fruits, vegetables, and plant-derived compounds, such as oregano and sage, and rosemary and green tea extracts. Although most of them are organic and natural, food items with very few ingredients are nowadays also categorized as clean label ingredients.

Clean Label Ingredients Market Trends:
The flourishing food and beverage (F&B) industry represents one of the key factors strengthening the growth of the market. Apart from this, rising awareness about the adverse impact of consuming synthetic ingredients, such as monosodium glutamate (MSG), artificial food coloring, sodium nitrite, guar gum, is catalyzing the demand for clean label ingredients. In addition, there is an increase in the demand for transparent and natural ingredients targeted for children on account of the rising per-capita income of individuals worldwide. This, in confluence with the growing application of these ingredients in restaurants, cafes and hotels, to meet the taste and preference of consumers, is positively influencing their overall sales. Furthermore, leading market players are focusing on undertaking numerous initiatives to spread awareness about the benefits of consuming clean label ingredients. As a result, they are coming up with promotional campaigns, including celebrity endorsements. They are also increasing their funding of research and development (R&D) activities to introduce innovative food preservation technologies, which is creating a favorable market outlook. Besides this, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak is driving the sales of clean label products due to the rising health consciousness among individuals and the alarming need to protect against the spread of the pandemic.
