World demand for nutraceutical chemicals is expected to grow 6.1% a year to reach $9.6 billion by 2008, according to “World nutraceuticals” by The Freedonia Group, Cleveland, OH.

The fastest growing demand will come from developing nations of the Asia/Pacific, Latin America, Eastern Eur-ope and Africa/Middle East. Demand will be especially high for functional additives such as probiotics, omega-3 fatty acids, soy isoflavones and lycopene, according re-searchers at the Freedonia Group.
