Disodium Guanylate Market: Snapshot

Disodium guanylate is natural sodium salt found primarily in nature in the form of s a natural sodium salt. It is commonly used in a food additive falls under natural flavours E number E627 food label and used in conjunction with glutamic acid.

Dipotassium guanylate is a natural phosphate. Therefore, it is intensively used for the manufacturing of fertilizers owing to the enormous amount of potassium present in it. Due to this, there is conflict of supply deficiency of dipotassium guanylate for food manufacturing.  The price for food phosphate is also high this is again discouraging food manufacturers to opt for dipotassium guanylate instead of MSG.

Nevertheless, to overcome this, dipotassium guanylate manufacturers are investing on advanced processing techniques and equipment. This will help increase the production rate of the dipotassium guanylate and help in fulfilling the gap. Such initiatives taken by the players are expected to bolster growth in the dipotassium guanylate market.

Extensive use of food enhancing agents is supporting the growth of the global disodium guanylate market during the assessment period.
