Cocoa fiber is a dietary fiber that is used as an additive in the food industry. Dietary fiber has a wide variety of effective health uses, such as reducing the risk of heart disease, cancer of the colon and diabetes, treatment of colonic disorders, enhancement of gastrointestinal function and others. Cocoa fiber is produced from roasted cocoa husks by washing, micronizing and heat steaming (sterilization). Cocoa fiber used as a supplement for cocoa powder to enhance nutritional value, shelf life and texture with limited effects on taste. In addition, cocoa fiber used in a wide variety of end-use applications, including bakery, drinks, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and others. Cocoa fiber is also used for board and paper processing to create personalized solutions for many industries. Manufacturers are introducing variants of cocoa-based fiber to meet the emerging needs of customers linked to various health issues and growing demand for safe and creative goods. For example, in 2017, Praim Group announced its plans to produce bakery-inspired chocolate bars with flavours such as dark chocolate raspberry burst and dark chocolate mint crunch. With the increasing demand for dark chocolates in the country, it is expected that more manufacturers will launch different varieties within this chocolate category to attract new consumers. Companies also seek to increase production capacity and to evolve rapidly in order to deliver goods that are nutritious and that also come from different varieties. Global customer awareness of the many health benefits associated with chocolate has seen a major increase in the recent past and is projected to continue to raise sales from the global demand for cocoa fibre over the forecast period. Over the years, the production and consumption of bakery items with a lower calorie count has increased. The increase in obesity, cardiovascular disease and other diet-related illnesses has contributed to a greater understanding of lower calorie food ingredients. Moreover, lower consumption of fruits, pulses, vegetable results in inadequate fibre intake. As a result, the fat part of the bakery products has been replaced by the cocoa fibre content, which is expected to increase the market demand for cocoa fibre. The growing popularity of chocolates among the young generation increases the desire for and consumption of cocoa powder. Various market players have started introducing products with various health benefits. For instance, In January 2020, Healy Group– an Ireland-based company has launched a cocoa fiber-based product PrimaFi Cocoa. This product contains natural, and dietary cocoa fiber that replaces 40% sugar without hindering the mouthfeel.
