DUBLIN, Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Oils and Fats Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

The global oils and fats market to reach a market value of around USD 170 billion by the end of 2019

The adverse effects due to excess consumption of oils and fats are expected to pose challenges to the market growth during the forecast period. Most of the oils are high in Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids. These acids if consumed in high quantity result in such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes.

 Clean label recipes that are trending in global and mature markets are defined as modified foods with simpler labelling and ingredients. In November 2014, Unilever's US foods division introduced buttery spread varieties that were made with real and simple ingredients. They were the first buttery spreads from Unilever that were made with non-GM sourced ingredients.

According to the report, increasing work pressure and shortage of time have led to an increase in demand for packaged and convenience food, which in turn has driven the sales of oils and fats. These food items have already been processed, and therefore it takes less less time and effort to cook them. Consumers are willing to spend more on convenience foods as their lifestyles have changed and they have less time to cook.

Further, the report states that the market faces challenges in terms of adverse health effects from trans fats and saturated oil due to excessive consumption.
