Vitamin E market to grow more than 12 percent annually ALBANY, NY—The global market for naturally sourced vitamin E is fore- cast to grow at a compound annual rate of 12.8 percent, reaching $2.2 million by 2024, according to a report by Transparency Market Research. The report divides the market into two seg- ments: tocopherol vitamin E and tocotrienol vitamin E, with the former accounting for 65 percent of overall market revenue. Factors driving growth of the vitamin E market include high global awareness of health issues, strong distribution channels, and prod- uct affordability. The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest growing segment for vitamin E. The report identifies Archer Daniels Midland, Wilmar Spring Fruit Nutrition, BASF, DSM, Riken Vitamin, Eisai Food and Chemical, and Zheijang Worldbestve Biotechnology as leaders in this market. Ginger, chili powder may decrease cancer risk WASHINGTON, DC—Ingesting 6-gingergol (ginger) and capsaicin (chili powder) may decrease your risk of cancer, according to study results published in the November 2016 issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Researchers fed mice either 6-gingerol, capsaicin, or both for 20 weeks. While 70 percent of the control group developed cancer, all of the mice fed only capsaicin—which previous studies have linked with cancerous effects—developed lung carcinomas. However, only half of the mice fed 6- gingerol developed cancer and only 20 percent of the mice given both com- pounds developed cancer. Both 6-gin- gerol and capsaicin bind to the same cellular receptor related to tumor growth, which may explain the seem- ingly contradictory results of the study. CRN publishes supplement survey, launches product registry WASHINGTON, DC—About 71 percent (more than 170 million) US adults take dietary supplements, according an annual dietary supple- ment survey by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN). The report found that the five most popu- lar supplements are the multivitamin, vitamin D, vitamin C, calcium, and vitamin B/B-complex. Higher use of dietary supplements among 18 to 34 year olds boosted overall dietary sup- plement growth in the general popula- tion. Adults aged 55 or more are the largest users of supplements.
