Added Fiber Benefits Cereal, Bakery, Snack Applications

October 25, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The demand for fiber in foods continues to grow, and food manufacturers have numerous opportunities to boost fiber content in their products, especially in snacks, bakery, and cereals. Nutrient-dense snacks, beverages, and even indulgent desserts are fortified with varying levels of added fiber to help people meet their wellness goals. Health-conscious shoppers and everyday athletes actively seek out fortified snacks, bars, sparkling waters, shakes, and smoothies, making them ideal targets for increased prebiotic fiber. Market data show that cereal and bakery account for two-thirds of all product launches with fiber claims. Cargill, for example, has created baked and rotary molded biscuits, gelatin jellies, ice cream, and fruit yogurts that achieve “high in fiber” claims along with a 30 percent sugar reduction.

Upcycled Snacks Offer A Food Waste Solution

October 24, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Consumers purchase so many food products without thinking about their often good and nutritious by-products, says Philadelphia restaurateur Kiki Aranita. But those otherwise edible by-products often end up in landfills. There are alternatives, however. Among the eight food brands committed to upcycling to reduce food waste are two snack brands: Pulp Pantry’s Pulp Chips (Jalapeño, BBQ, and Sea Salt Lime Pulp Chips), made using the fiber left over from juicing fruits and vegetables, so they’re naturally gluten-free and vegan; and Seconds Carrot Crackers, made from upcycled juice pulp and peels, tapioca flour, garlic powder, onion powder, turmeric, nutritional yeast, and flax and chia seeds – a vegan alternative to Cheez-Its, according to Aranita. A 6-box variety pack costs $42.

Nightfood Expands Distribution To Hotel Chains

October 19, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Although the Tarrytown, N.Y.-based bedtime snack maker’s products are found in more than 1,500 supermarkets, including some Walmart and Albertsons locations, the company says its imminent national hotel rollout will greatly accelerate growth. A successful pilot test with an unnamed global hotel brand that led to the introduction of its ice cream, which has 10 percent of the fat of traditional ice cream, less sugar, and no artificial sweeteners, into thousands of hotel lobbies in the next few months. According to the company, that distribution would equate to an endorsement by the industry and would accelerate consumer awareness and acceptance. Nightfood has engaged North Carolina-based iDEAL Hospitality Partners Group to help boost the hotel footprint.

New FDA Guidance Urges Snack Producers To Cut Salt Content

October 19, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The FDA’s guidance encourages food producers to voluntarily reduce sodium content across categories like bakery, breakfast cereals, and snacks, to help consumers decrease salt consumption by 400 mg/day – 12 percent over the next two and a half years. Excessive salt intake is directly linked to chronic conditions like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity, all of which are preventable through better diets. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans for 2020-2025 advises people 14 years and older to cut their salt consumption to 2,300 mg/day, from 3,400 mg/day. The guidance is fully voluntary and non-binding.

Furikake Adds Flavor, Texture To Rice-Based Snacks

October 18, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Originally a Japanese dietary supplement comprising pulverized sardines, poppy seeds, and seaweed, the modern version of furikake is a seasoning made from sesame seeds, seaweeds, herbs, fish flakes, and salt. It is commonly served on bowls of steamed rice and pressed into rice-based snacks, adding a layer of flavor, texture, and nourishment. Writer Sonoko Sakai notes that furikake not only gives rice a punch of flavor, but also perks up pasta, noodles, vegetables, pizza, popcorn, dips, and focaccia. Sakai has also “come across savory granolas that act like furikake but are substantial enough to be snacks.”

Insect Snacks Debut In Japanese Vending Machines

October 12, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Snacks made with fried and dried insects – house crickets, locusts, silkworm chrysalises, caterpillars, beetles, etc. – are now being sold in more than 20 vending machines in Japan. A machine installed recently in a shop in the province of Gifu dispenses cookies laced with cricket powder, salted fried locusts, red-legged grasshoppers, and two-spotted crickets. The bottled bugs are sold for about $9 a jar, and the menu changes depending on the time of year. The insects are supplied by Hamaru Foods, which imports frozen bugs – both farmed and captured – from Thailand and cooks them at its factory. The process is eco-friendly because insect farming purportedly requires much less water and grain than livestock farming, and the growing period is shorter.

Australian Scientists See Lupin Bean As Next Superfood

October 8, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Largely unknown in the U.S., lupin beans are a natural nutritional powerhouse, according to researchers at Edith Cowan University (Perth, Western Australia), who see lupin's "huge potential" as the next superfood. Packed with more protein than any other legume, lupins “can combat heart disease, reduce blood glucose levels, and reduce inflammation in the body," says researcher Arineh Tahmasian, who helped identify more than 2,500 different lupin proteins. In Canada, they are labeled “lupini beans,” and offered as a bar snack “in a bowl, salted." Unfortunately, to get to that stage, they need to be washed, soaked in brine, and boiled for a long time to get rid of the bitter alkaloids and render them edible.

Microsalt’s Low-Salt Chips Will Be Sold In Large N.A. Supermarket Chain

October 8, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The so far unnamed chain will market SaltMe! potato chips, developed by the U.S. subsidiary of U.K. investment firm Tekcapital’s portfolio company Salarius. The chips will be available in more than 800 of the chain’s stores in 2022. In September 2020, the company hired food distributor Gehring-Montgomery Inc. to assist in the sale of Microsalt products in the U.S. The distinguishing feature of MicroSalt is its small salt particles – one hundred times smaller than table salt – that use a large surface area-to-volume ratio to generate a salty taste with less salt. Microsalt expects SaltMe! to become “a national brand” in the low-sodium snack category. The company is hoping other food manufacturers will use MicroSalt in their products.

Salty, Spicy Snacks Succeed At C-Stores During Pandemic

October 4, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Retailers everywhere took it on the chin with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, but one fgood category that prospered, especially at convenience stores, was the salty snack category. The National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) reports that sales of Frito-Lay legacy brands, for example, are up over the past several months, with Lay’s up 32 percent and Tostitos up 42 percent. Salty snacks – chips, popcorn, pretzels, tortilla chips, and more – all satisfied the slaty snack cravings of cooped-up consumers globally. The introduction of new formats and flavors – ghost pepper, habañero, Tabasco, Korean barbecue, wasabi, sriracha, and salted caramel – excited consumers, especially Gen Z and Millennials. In the wake of the pandemic, as more consumers than ever focus on their health, sales of better-for-you free-from snacks are booming, along with healthier items containing protein and plant-based ingredients like nuts, seeds, and trail mixes.

October 1, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The new cereals and snacks division of Australia’s Arnott’s Group has released its first product, a reformulation of Messy Monkeys Wholegrain Bites.

The new Bites have revamped flavors, a softer texture, and are gluten- and allergen-free, containing no nuts, soy, or egg. They also have less than one gram of sugar per serve and account for more than 10 per cent of a child’s daily fiber intake. They are available in Australia for A$4.80 each, or A$0.80 per individual serve.

Michele’s Granola Says Its New Muesli Cereal Has Only Three Grams Of Sugar

September 28, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Timonium, Md.-based maker of small batch granola and muesli cereal has added its lowest sugar variety, Michele’s Apple Cinnamon Toasted Muesli, to the product lineup.  The new variety is a toasted oat-based cereal with nuts, seeds, apples, and raisins, and a total of three grams of sugar per serving. Two grams of sugar occur naturally in the dried fruit, while one gram is added via pure maple syrup. The company introduced its original Toasted Muesli in 2015. The brand also bakes a line of handmade granola cereals containing all-natural ingredients. The company says it was on a 20-25 percent annual growth trajectory before 2019, but doubled that rate from 2019-2020.

Snack Companies Should Cater To Consumer Quest For New Flavors

September 27, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Market researcher Mintel’s data support the recommendation that snack companies should experiment with flavors to fuel sales of all types of snacks. Forty-three percent of consumers say they look for new flavors all of the time or most of the time, while about 41 percent do so occasionally. The consumer quest for new flavors varies somewhat by age: the under-45 group, which includes Gen Z and younger Millennials, are most likely to seek out new flavors all of the time while those 55 and older are less likely to try something different. Top flavors such as cheddar, salted, barbecue, garlic, and ranch aren’t surprising: older consumers lean toward onion-flavored snacks while Gen Z tend to prefer peanut butter the most.

Upcycled Corn Germ Is The Core Of Kazoo Snacks

September 23, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Billed as the “first water-saving tortilla brand,” the Dallas, Texas-based snacks are made with 40 percent upcycled corn germ, repurposed from the U.S. corn starch industry that produces germ as a by-product. Traditional tortilla chip companies use 100 percent virgin growth corn. According to the company, the reclaiming and upcycling reduces Kazoo's water footprint by at least 20 gallons per bag.    Kazoo Snacks' tortilla chips, available in Restaurant Style, Bite-sized, and Lime Zest varieties, are vegan, kosher, gluten-free, 140 calories per serving, and rich in fiber, calcium, potassium, and 100 percent natural ingredients. The snacks are sold at an SRP of $4.99 per 11-ounce bag at Hyvee and Market of Choice, and will soon arrive on shelves in Whole Foods Northern California and on Amazon.

Report: U.K. Consumer Attitudes Toward Bagged Snacks Since Pandemic Onset

September 22, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Research by Lumina Intelligence has spotlighted several trends of interest to snack makers in the U.K. One third of Brits, for example, are likely to eat traditional snacks along with BFY snacks, rationalizing that they need to counter "moments of comfort and indulgence" with more permissible options. Older consumers (65+) not only shun on-pack health information the most (36 percent) and are least likely to consider health at all when buying into the category (35 percent). They are also the least adventurous when it comes to trying new flavors, unlike 35 to 44-year-olds, who are most likely to try something new. Other findings focus on frequency of eating bagged snacks, the favorite bagged snack of all, package recycling tendencies, etc.

African Nations Strive To Meet Surging Demand For Cashews

September 21, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Thanks to growing demand, the global market for raw cashews will expand at an annual rate of 4.27 percent between 2020 and 2025 and is expected to reach almost $7 billion by 2025. Several forces are driving demand: recognition of cashews’ health and nutritional benefits; the growth in plant-based diets; a growing role as a substitute for both peanut butter and dairy products; and continued popularity as a savory snack. At the forefront of response to the growing demand for cashews are African countries that have increased production. Ghana, one of Africa’s biggest growers of cashews,. produces 85,000 metric tons of raw cashews each year – or about one percent of the world’s total production.

How Brewer’s Crackers Adapted Its Business Model To Survive The Pandemic Crisis

September 20, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, the Somerville, Mass.-based snack maker  relied on supermarket sales and in-store sampling to drive sales. That all came to a screeching halt as the pandemic wore on. Sales at the company, whose snack crackers are made with spent brewer’s grains and whole wheat flour, slowed to a crawl as people increased their online shopping. The term Brewer's Crackers just didn't pop up on search algorithms. To find new customers, it switched to different outlets, like smaller shops and specialty stores (e.g., cheese shops), and wholesale websites such as Faire.com and MeetMable.com. The company, which recently introduced pita chips made from upcycled brewer’s grains and is changing its name to Brewer’s Foods, is back on the road to growth.

September 17, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Sales at the London-based company, created in February after Exponent’s acquisition of Proper Snacks, are up almost 30 percent this year – an “exceptional” start to trading. Combined sales are up 29 percent year-to-date. Sales of Proper popcorn and lentil chips are up 36 percent year-to-date. Out-of-home sales of Eat Real hummus snacks are down compared to the same period last year because of lockdowns on foodservice accounts, but they have staged a strong recovery in July since reopening. “Since Proper and Eat Real joined forces earlier in 2021, we are delighted by the performance of both brands,” said Warp CEO Chris Schulze-Melander.
