Dublin, July 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pbv8w8/global_health_and) has announced the addition of the "2014 Report on the International Health and Wellness Food Market - Forecasts to 2018" report to their offering.

In recent years, there has been a drastic rise in health issues such as diabetes, allergies, and obesity worldwide. People are therefore becoming more health-conscious and are trying to follow a healthy diet to prevent or reduce the occurrence of diseases and illnesses. They require foods that have fewer calories but with the right combination of essential nutrients such as low-fat and heart healthy foods.

Many restaurants and fast-food chains also have healthy food options on their menus. In North America and Europe, the popularity of low-calorie and low-fat foods has created huge demand for healthy foods. Hence, the increase in the global health-conscious population is expected to propel the growth of the Global Health and Wellness Food market during the forecast period.

According to the report, the growth of the Global Health and Wellness Food market is supported by several drivers, including an increase in the global aging population. The aged are the potential and primary consumers of health and wellness foods. The majority of the demand for health and wellness foods comes from the APAC region, which is a densely populated region with changing consumer lifestyles and increasing disposable income.

Further, the report states that the threat of contamination of ingredients and raw materials is a major challenge that limits market growth.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
