Food Additives and Nutricosmetics Market Challenges – Stringent Government Rules and Regulations

Stringent regulatory scenario regarding use of additives and nutricosmetics due to its negative health impact is a challenge for growth of the global market in food additives and nutricosmetics. Various authorities across the globe regulate usage of additives. Food additives are associated with a number of health issues such as cancer, hyperactivity, and heart issues. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) implemented certain guidelines for usage of additives in food and nutrients. Countries such as Finland, Norway, Austria, U.K. and France have banned synthetic food additives, while the U.K. and Canada have banned usage of Olestra (a food additive). This inhibits growth of the food additives and nutricosmetics market to a certain extent.

This is a major factor that is expected to fuel market growth over the foreseeable future.
