SINGAPORE, June 3, 2024 - (ACN Newswire) - The fast-paced lifestyle of Singaporeans has led many to turn to fast food as a convenient dining choice. According to a 2018 Nielsen survey, it is revealed that 76% of Singaporeans choose fast food outlets for a speedy meal. In addition, about 55% of Singaporeans prefer to eat out on a weekly basis instead of home-cooked meals. Experts believe that the main appeal of fast food largely stems from the demands of their busy schedules and lifestyle changes apart from its affordability and convenience.

However, the increased consumption of fast food and takeaways has also led to a rise in digestive health issues among the population. In 2022, the global Digestives & Intestinal Remedies market reached US$18.79 billion, and the market is projected to reach a CAGR of around 2% by 2024.
