Sarasota, FL, Dec. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zion Research has published a new report titled “Savory Snacks Market (Potato chips, Extruded snacks, Nuts and seeds, Traditional snacks, Popcorn, Pretzels, Meat snacks): Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis and Forecast, 2015 - 2021”. According to the report, the global savory snacks market accounted for USD 94.5 Billion in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 108.5 Billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of around 2.33% between 2016 and 2021. Savory snack is a salty food which is smaller than a regular meal. Usually, savory snack is eaten between meals. From past few years, snacks consumption trend have been changed. Consumers prefer more healthy snacks than the fried one. Hence, manufacturer’s venture towards the consumers demands healthy and fat-free snacks have been increasing. This boosts the demand for healthy snacks and in turn helps to grow the snacks market in the coming future. Lay’s, Doritos, Cheetos, Ruffles, and Pringles were the dominating brands with the highest market share in 2015. Demand for such brands increased due to innovative consumption pattern such as potato chips in chocolate chili flavor in France, nacho chips in papdi chaat flavor in India, popcorn in strawberry and cream flavor in the UK and maize snacks in a tangy fruit chutney flavor in South Africa. Browse through 18 Market Tables and 19 Figures spread over 110 Pages and in-depth TOC on “Global Savory Snacks Market: Industry Analysis, Size, Trends, Growth, Statistics, Segment and Forecast 2015-2021”. Increasing urbanization and busy lifestyles are impacting the consumer eating habits. Consumers are gradually replacing main meals with more light, flexible and convenient snacking options. This is expected to be a driving factor for savory snack market. PepsiCo is one of the leading providers of savory snacks in the global market. Their snacks are made with different flavors to capture the region specific taste preferences. For instance, in North America, some of the flavors provided by PepsiCo are sour cream & onion, barbecue, and hidden valley ranch. Due to rising health concerns, producers have altered their manufacturing methods and content in their snacks. This has resulted in low salt content in baked and crispy snacks instead of fried. These alterations from manufacturers according to the consumer demand are projected to drive the market in next future years.  However, the high cost of these snacks is one of the factors which are hampering the savory snacks market growth. Furthermore, the growing hypermarkets and supermarkets in the developing economies are boosting growth opportunities for the savory snacks market. Savory snacks market is segmented into extruded snacks, nuts & seeds, popcorn, pretzels, meat snacks, traditional snacks, potato chips and another type of snacks. A potato chip has been the leading product segment of the savory snacks market over the past few years and this trend is projected to be continued over the forecast period. Traditional snacks segment is projected to witness strong growth in the coming future owing to new innovations in flavors and tastes. Extruded snack is also one of the major product segments of the savory snack market and likely to grow rapidly due to increasing consumers preference towards it. The North America savory snacks market is majorly driven by the food habits of the consumers, as snack foods have become the essential part of the daily diet along with meals. With the growing obesity concern, consumers in this region have been giving equal importance to nutritional value and taste profile. With this trend spreading across the region, manufacturers have been rolling out healthy snacks with increased nutritional value. This is expected to again boost the demand for savory snacks market in this region. UK was a major market for savory snacks in Europe and accounted for approximately USD 4.59 billion in 2015. Whilst the UK is one of the largest purchasers (per capita) of potato chips / crisps, savory snacks, and snack nuts. In Europe, the average purchase of snack food is around 3.6kg per year per capita (According to Europe snacks Association). This trend is likely to boost the savory snack market in Europe. Inquire more about this report @ https://www.zionmarketresearch.com/inquiry/savory-snacks-market In Asia Pacific, savory snacks market is likely to witness significant growth in the next coming years on account of increasing disposable income of consumers in developing economies such as China and India. Moreover, the impact of westernization and changing the life style of consumers are the factors which expected to drive the market in this region. It is estimated that the major future growth will come from the Asia-Pacific region due to two key reasons i.e. an increasing population and increased consumption per capita.  Latin America is anticipated to grow rapidly due to increasing consumption of savory snacks day by day. Latin America was followed by the Middle East and Africa. For instance, in Latin America, sales of savory snacks, which include crackers, rice cakes, and pita chips, increased 21% in 2015. Furthermore, meat snacks, which include jerky and dried meat, grew about 24% in the Middle East and Africa in 2015.

Cultivation of functional pancreatic cells isolated from adult mammalian pancreas remains difficult. We developed a differentiation protocol that gradually induced the formation of mouse pancreatic exocrine cells from embryonic stem cells (ESCs). This process mimicked in vivo pancreatic development by directing cells through definitive endoderm (DE), gut tube endoderm, and pancreatic progenitor cells to differentiated cells that expressed pancreatic exocrine enzymes. Mouse ESCs were cultured in hanging drops to form embryoid bodies. Treatment of embryoid bodies with activin A induced the formation of DE cells that expressed marker mRNAs Goosecoid and Mixl1 and that were double-positive with Foxa2 and Sox17 proteins. Subsequent treatment of the DE cells by retinoic acid induced the formation of gut tube endoderm cells that expressed the specific marker Hnf1b. Expression of Goosecoid and Mixl1 was downregulated during this period. Fibroblast growth factor 7 (FGF7) promoted differentiation of PDX1-expressing pancreatic progenitor cells that also expressed Foxa2 mRNA, an endodermal marker, suggesting derivation from the DE cells. Exocrine cell differentiation was induced with FGF7, glucagon-like peptide-1, and nicotinamide. The differentiated cells expressed mature pancreatic exocrine cell mRNAs, such as Amylase, Elastase, and Carboxypeptidase A. Additionally, they produced pancreatic elastase, amylase, carboxypeptidase A, and chymotrypsin proteins that were identified in cytoplasmic granules by immunocytochemistry. Active amylase was released into the medium. Moreover, FGF7 was associated with differentiation of pancreatic exocrine cells. The findings reported here offer a novel and effective process to develop pancreatic exocrine cells from ESCs. © 2011, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.

Proanthocyanidins and other polyphenols in the seeds and juice of boysenberry were quantitatively analyzed. Polyphenolic extracts were prepared from the waste seeds and commercial juice by chromatographic fractionation. Compositional analysis revealed that both extracts contained six polyphenolic classes: flavanol monomers, proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins, ellagic acid, ellagitannins, and flavonol glycosides. Ellagitannins were the most abundant polyphenols in both extracts. Proanthocyanidins were present as short oligomers consisting of dimeric and trimeric procyanidins and propelargonidins, with the most abundant component being procyanidin B4 in both extracts. Quantification by high-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS) revealed that the seeds contained a 72-fold higher amount of proanthocyanidins than the juice. These results indicate that boysenberry fruits contain short oligomeric proanthocyanidins along with flavanol monomers and the seeds represent a good source of short oligomeric proanthocyanidins. © 2011 American Chemical Society.

We studied the effects of PDGF-BB on changes in the diameters of murine lymph vessels with or without intact endothelium. PDGF-BB induced dilation of the lymph vessels with endothelium. Pretreatment with l-NAME or removal of the endothelium caused a significant attenuation in the PDGF-BB-induced dilation. PDGF-BB also produced dose-related reduction of the diameters of the lymph vessels without endothelium. To evaluate intracellular signal transduction and Ca 2+-dependence of the PDGF-BB-induced tonic contraction, we investigated the effects of imatinib, GW5074 (an inhibitor of Raf-1 kinase), U-73122 (an inhibitor of phospholipase C), and xestospongin C on the PDGF-BB-induced reduction responses. All of these inhibitors caused a significant attenuation in the PDGF-BB-induced reduction response that was significantly decreased by treatment with Ca 2+-free Krebs-bicarbonate solution or nifedipine. Higher concentrations of PDGF-BB produced a marked reduction of lymph vessel diameter within both high K + Krebs-bicarbonate solution and Ca 2+-free high K + Krebs solution containing 1mM EGTA. These findings suggest that PDGF-BB induced endothelium-dependent NO-mediated relaxation of lymphatic smooth muscles in murine lymph vessels.
