Plant-based revolution broadens horizons for nut-based snacking
5 February 2020
Nuts are suited for a wide range of uses and applications, lending craveable flavors and textures to plant-based and natural products that offer wholesome indulgence. Often synonymous with protein claims, nuts enable the supplementation of dietary requirements in formats designed for convenient consumption. In addition, the early introduction of nuts in children’s diets has been found to help prevent future allergies – paving the way for nut-based NPD targeting young consumers and baby-friendly formats.
Snacking is essential to the increasing demographic of on-the-go consumers in meeting their total energy intake. Snack launches containing nuts are seeing an increase of +9 percent average annual growth (Global, CAGR 2015 to 2019). Next to a focus on healthy snacking, a trend to watch is the presence of spicy nut flavors such as chili, wasabi and salsa barbecue.
In partnership with food transparency blockchain specialist Connecting Food, French dairy cooperative Ingredia unveiled "the first dairy ingredients to be certified, traced and audited in real-time," exhibited at FiE in Paris. This is according to José Luis Pinedo Rivera of Ingredia, who highlighted that transparency continues to be a strong consumer demand. The presented solution responds to this issue in the dairy space for both suppliers and consumers.
