Barley fibre and protein ingredients for pasta and noodles
Realize the potential of high protein and fibre with EverVita Pro
Pasta is the staple food of many countries and is consumed on a regular basis. Dishes containing noodles are also present in many cultures, and the increasing consumption of noodles and pasta, coupled with the wide availability of these products in different flavours and packaging, is strongly driving the market across EMEA and worldwide.
As lifestyles shift to more time spent at home and busy schedules leave less time for meal prep, the demand for convenient meals, particularly for products, such as vermicelli, fusilli and macaroni, has been on the rise. Valued at EUR 57.69 billion in 2020 and projected to reach EUR 76.5 billion by 2028, the category is growing at a CAGR of 3.66 % from 2021 to 2028.
