The starter culture market is experiencing positive growth in past few years due to its increased application in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Starter cultures are essential ingredients in the production of beverages, as they perform the important role of breaking down sugars and releasing carbon dioxide. They are responsible for giving quality and flavor to alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. There are varied characteristics in different starter cultures that set them apart from each other in terms of use, quality, and quantity. The non-alcoholic beverage products market is comparatively smaller and is projected to grow at a high rate due to an increase in health awareness among consumers.
