Growing Importance of Healthy and Nutritious Diet Fuel Sales of Global Soy Foods Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (amazon) (shopzilla)

San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 28, 2012

Follow us on LinkedIn Worldwide soy foods market is driven by increasing awareness among consumers about the health benefits offered, including heart and bone health, as well as protection from cancer. Soy foods initially forayed into the market as a health food product and gradually earned the tag of specialty food. Traditionally, soyfood products have been sold and marketed primarily through retail segments, such as supermarkets and large mass outlets. However, with an increasing portfolio of soy-based products and their expanding applications, the need existed for expanding the products scope to other potential channels as well. Sales through foodservices therefore form an integral part of such prospective channels. Over the years, Soyfoods have moved away from retailing at small natural food stores to mainstream food outlets, buoyed by improvement in taste and product innovations. Soy foods have now emerged as a healthier and convenient dietary alternative to the existing products in developed nations. Even in developing markets, soy foods have found a place in the mainstream market and are provided as packaged foods in several varieties, the shift attributed to market liberalization and improved supply network.

The market for soy-based products expanded considerably with innovative and continuous launch of various soy products. Formerly, soy products found in retail stores were limited to tofu, bitter-tasting soymilk and poorly textured meat analogues. With advanced technology, development of tasty soy products has become easier. Several types of tasty soy beverages and snacks continue to hit the market every year. The launched IQF technology utilized intermediate moisture meat analogues to improve the quality vastly while encouraging growth. Other products include soy cheese, soy tortillas, soy bars, soy ice creams, soy pastas, soy breakfast cereals, soy breads and soy confections.

During the past decade, organic soy foods witnessed swift growth within the overall food sector, primarily in the developed US market. The trend is motivated by significant developments that took place in meat analogs and soymilk industry. Organic soy foods are increasingly becoming favorites of traditional consumers and have gained immense popularity among pure vegetarians. Increased demand for organic soy foods is drawing the attention of mainstream food processors. However, despite the general success , the product has its own history of initial challenges. The soy supplements market witnessed a marked slowdown and diminished growth during the period 2006-07, on account of severe anti-soy allegations that surfaced during the time. However, subsequent research and investigations rendered the allegations uncertain on grounds of incorrect research methodology used for such inferences. The soy foods industry, thereafter, recovered from the controversies and has since been marching forward.

Backed by rapid development, huge population base and rapid growth in promising markets of China, India, Indonesia and Korea, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and fastest growing regional market surging at a strong CAGR of 6.4%, as stated by the new market research report on Soy Foods. Asia also emerges as the leading soy milk consumer worldwide, with a per capita consumption of about 16.4 liters annually. Demand for soy proteins in China and Southeast Asia is progressively expanding, principally due to a gradual shift in peoples life styles and dietary habits. With respect to soy food products, Whole Soy Foods, inclusive of soymilk, soy beverages, meat alternatives, tofu, miso, cereals and others represents the most prominent segment for soy foods.

Major players profiled in the report include Alpro, Archer Daniels Midland Company, Dean Foods Company, Eden Foods, Inc, Galaxy Nutritional Foods, Inc., Hain Celestial Group, Kikkoman Group, Earths Own Food Company Inc., The Solae Company, and Turtle Island Foods, Inc., among others.

    A New Study Highlights The Importance of a Specific Anti-Oxidant in Age-Related Eye Disease (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 17, 2012

    A newly published study in patients having early and intermediate age-related maculate degeneration (AMD), a major cause of visual impairment in those over 50 years of age, suggests that Alpha Lipoic Acid, a nutritional antioxidant, may have a possible preventive role in the development of AMD. Agreeing with this study, Nutri-Med logic Corp adds that another very recent and landmark study by the Department of Ophthalmology, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, also suggests that supplementation of Omega-3 fatty acids, an anti-inflammatory nutrient, resulted in a protective application against age-related retina functional losses.

    This new study, which incorporated patients between 50-75, found that the administration of Alpha Lipoic Acid (LA) resulted in a statistically significant increase in the anti-oxidant defense of the LA group, suggesting that Alpha Lipoic Acid could propose a preventive role in the development of the dry AMD.

    The dry AMD is the results of the atrophy of the retinal pigment epithelial (a cellular layer of the retina), in another word the loss of photoreceptor cells (vision loss). The Retinal Pigment Epithelial shields the retina from excess incoming light as well as supplying Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA), which are the sole fatty acids incorporated into the cellular membranes of the eyes.

    Cellular oxidative stress plays a key and fundamental role in retinal pigment epithelial cell death during aging, thus leading to the development of AMD. (1)

    Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is one of the most important anti-oxidant defense systems that shield the human body from oxidative stress and this new study found that the application of Alpha Lipoic Acid resulted in the increased activity of SOD. In United States, Alpha Lipoic Acid is classified as a nutrient (dietary supplement).

    While this finding proposes an important dietary intervention for Alpha Lipoic Acid and AMD, another very important study by the Department of Ophthalmology of the University of Alberta, Canada, found that 1-6 months trial of Omega-3 (DHA) dietary supplementation resulted in its increased retina levels, preserving the retinal pigment epithelial function and, further, the 6-12 months trial led to maintained outer and inner retina function.

    The increased anti-oxidant defense (SOD) by Alpha Lipoic Acid do suggests a lesser oxidative stress and thus a diminished premature retinal pigment epithelial cell death, interestingly the very cell line that supplies Omega-3 fatty acids of DHA.

    The retina has the highest concentration of DHA Omega-3 fatty acids, the precursor to Docosanoids, which produce neuroprotectin D1, inhibiting premature apoptosis (cell death) and oxidative-stress-mediated pro-inflammatory gene induction. (2)

    In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp. agreeing with new study, adds that while the supplementation of R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, an anti-oxidant nutrient, would be beneficial in AMD but a concurrent supplementation of Omega-3, an anti-inflammatory nutrient, would propose additional benefits.

    Nutri-Med Logic Corp is the producer of the Natural, Balanced, Deodorized, Concentrated and Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3.

    Nutri-Med Logic Corp is also a producer of dietary supplements such as a Pharmaceutical Grade R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (the natural type of Lipoic Acid), a universal anti-oxidant and the dietary supplement of choice for the Diabetics, in Germany for decades;

    Producer of PolyEnylPhosphatidylCholine (PPC 425mg), an extract of soy, a pure and effective dietary source of choline and the recommended dietary supplement for those with Fatty Liver and Alcoholic Liver Disease, in Europe for decades.
