The Global Food Amino Acids Market is divided as By Type, Source, Application, and Region.

By Type, it is divided into Glutamic Acid, Lysine, Tryptophan, Methionine, Phenylalanine and other types. The glutamic acid segment is estimated to lead the food amino acids market. This is due to the massive increase in demand for food amino acid as a flavor enhancer in various food and beverages such as snacks, sauces, and ready-to-eat soups. Additionally, growth in consumption of nutraceutical and dietary supplements, along with an increase in awareness among consumers toward products with nutritive ingredients is expected to escalate the demand for food amino acids in the future.

By Source, it is divided into Plant-Based Amino Acids, Animal-Based Amino Acids and Synthetic Amino Acids in which food amino acids derived from the synthetic method are most widely used as compared to plant-based and animal-based amino acids, owing to the high purity amino acids offered by this segment.

By Application, it is divided into Nutraceuticals & Dietary Supplements, Infant Formula, Food Fortification, Convenience Food and others in which the Nutraceuticals & Dietary Supplements account for the largest market share and is expected to grow at a moderate CAGR of XX% in the coming years.
