Study Finds That Snacks Can Be Fortified With Gut-Friendly Fiber

July 7, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
With a view toward developing prebiotic (fiber-rich) snacks that support a healthy gut, Mondelēz partly funded a study at the Washington University School of Medicine (St. Louis, Mo.) to investigate the dynamic relationship between the modern diet, gut microorganisms, and their effect on physical and mental wellbeing. In tests in both mice and humans, the researchers found that the more types of fiber introduced into the diet, the greater the abundance of bacterial genes that play a role in fiber metabolism. This in turn increased the levels of proteins in the blood involved in glucose metabolism, immunity, blood coagulation, blood vessel function, and the biology of bone and nerve cells. The study, published in Nature, proved that in principle fiber can be incorporated into a variety of snack formats that will benefit consumers, even those accustomed to a low-fiber diet.

Sow Good Raises $3M In Second Private Placement

July 7, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Irving, Texas-based maker of freeze-dried foods, including bagged fruit and vegetable snacks, completed a $3 million private placement. The share price of $4.25 represents a 6 percent premium to Sow Good’s private placement earlier this year. Investors in the private placement included the company’s top executives, board members, and a few accredited investors. Proceeds from the placement will be used to fund additional marketing and brand development, brand extensions, and working capital investments. The company raised more than $1 million in an earlier funding round. According to the company, the months following its May launch have seen the introduction of Sow Good products to retail stores and development of new products, including five flavors of gluten-free granola featuring freeze-dried fruit, and miniature bags of its initial snack line.

Whole Food Ingredients Boost Snack Nutrition Profiles Naturally

July 6, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Making baked goods more nutritious can be done by adding a pre-mix of vitamins, minerals, etc., to batter or dough, or by formulating with whole food ingredients, such as nuts, seeds, and berries. Nuts and seeds deliver essential fatty acids, protein, zinc, and B vitamins, while blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries provide natural sweetness, attractive colors, and flavonoid compounds called anthocyanins that support brain health. Other whole food ingredients that boost the nutrition profile of baked goods include: oats, eggs, cassava root, dehydrated organic vegetables, grass-fed beef bone broth, olive oil, calcium, vitamin D, antioxidants, probiotics, and postbiotics. Kellogg Company’s Nutri-Grain Kids soft-baked mini cereal bars, for example, deliver 10 percent of the daily value of several key nutrients, including calcium.

Barnana’s Mission: BFY Plantain Snacks That Are Planet-Friendly

July 6, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Santa Monica, Calif.-based plantain chip brand is expanding its portfolio from the flagship salty snack, Organic Ridged Plantain Chips, to include Organic Plantain Crisps. Made with 100 percent organic coconut oil, rather than palm oil, and organic green plantains, the crisps contain less sugar than those made with ripe plantains and give the crisps a savory flavor. Launching on National Banana Lovers’ Day, August 27, in the U.S., the snack will be available in Sea Salt and Garlic varieties, with a four-ounce bag of either flavor retailing for a suggested $4.99. Barnana says it works with smallholder farmers in Ecuador who grow plantains using traditional regenerative agroforestry practices that “ensure healthy soil, support biodiversity, and keep carbon in the ground.”

Kellogg Company Adds Accessibility Technology To European Cereal Boxes

July 3, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The breakfast cereal company (Battle Creek, Mich.) announced it will be switching its standard cereal boxes in Europe for ones that feature innovative, accessibility-minded technology for blind and sight-impaired consumers. Using "NaviLens" technology, the new boxes address the growing demand for inclusive design across all sectors, from packaging and products to physical and architectural spaces. The new technology will allow a smartphone to easily detect a unique code and play back labelling information to blind and partially sighted shoppers. NaviLens includes high contrasting-colored squares on a black background; information provided will include allergen details. The rollout follows a successful U.K. test last year in partnership with Co-op on Kellogg's Coco Pops boxes. The first accessible boxes of Special K will arrive on shelves in January, with all the firm's cereal packaging to follow.

General Mills Introduces Snacks For Diabetics, Pre-Diabetics

June 30, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The U.S. food company (Minneapolis, Minn.) has launched a line of snacks that purports to have minimal impact on blood sugar levels. Good Measure is targeted at people with pre-diabetes or diabetes who have to be careful to avoid blood sugar spikes, an "underserved group of consumers," according to the company. The brand has been launched with two products – nut butter bars and almond crisps – that are “held together by ingredients that won't spike blood sugar." General Mills has not said what those ingredients are but said it has filed for patents on both product lines. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates one in two adults actually have prediabetes or diabetes, but most don't know it yet.

Is U.K.’s HFSS-Based Ban On Online Advertising Fair?

June 28, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Recent U.K. government announcements tightening restrictions on the advertising of foods high in fat, salt and sugar (HFSS) include in-store ad placements, multi-buys, and a total ban on online advertising. This comes as the snack industry has reformulated products to reduce sugar content and calories. Originally proposed as a way to control unhealthy food products advertised on children’s TV shows, the new tighter restrictions may not be worth the negative impact they will likely have on the snacks sector for the sake of a meager reduction in calories. Granolas, for example, which many consider a healthy food, will be penalized if they contain fruit (sugar) or nuts (fat). A major complaint is that Public Health England (PHE) originally told snack brands to use marketing to promote their reformulated healthier products, but the new policy reportedly will ban that.

Academic Scientists Develop Fiber-Snack Formulations That Promote A Healthy Gut

June 28, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
A Washington University (St. Louis, Mo.) study funded by NIH and snack food company Mondelēz International identified ingredients for snack food prototypes formulated to deliberately change the gut microbiome in ways that can be linked to health. In two pilot human studies of overweight participants, researchers showed that snacks containing combinations of specifically selected fiber types benefit elements of the microbiome involved in metabolizing fiber components. The researchers, who have since applied for patents for the fiber-snack recipes discussed in the study, said they are working to develop a “new generation of snack food formulations that people will like to eat and that will support a healthy gut microbiome that affects many aspects of wellness.”

New Keto Food And Drink Launches Keep Chugging Along

June 28, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Consumers and food and beverage companies remain intrigued by the high-fat low-carb diet known as keto. Mintel data show that new food and drink launches in the U.S. touting the term “keto” in the product description have nearly doubled within the past year, from 1.2 percent of total food and beverage launches in the year ending in May 2020 to 2.3 percent in the year ending in May 2021. Though slightly fewer Americans reported following the diet in 2021 vs. 2020, NielsenIQ says there are seasonal spikes – at New Year’s and in early spring – around keto. Top categories for keto searches on Amazon are breads and buns, cereal, health, recovery drinks; powders, cookies, ice cream, baking mixes, and pasta, with top search terms being "keto," "keto bread," "keto cereal," "keto pasta," "keto ice cream," "keto cookies," and "keto protein powder.

Rind Snacks Expands Beyond Chewy Fruit Snacks

June 27, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The New York-based maker of functional sustainable chewy dried fruit snacks is crossing over into the fast-growing chips market with the launch of crispy thin-cut Fruit Chips in orange, kiwi, and apple flavors. The company says the chips, made with U.S.-grown non-GMO fruit, deliver up to three times more fiber, immunity-boosting vitamin C, and less sugar than leading fruit snacks on the market. The new line furthers the brand's fight against unnecessary food waste, retaining the rind on its products and helping divert over tons of edible peels from landfills. Rind Chips in 3-ounce bags at an MSRP of $4.99-$5.99 will be available online and at FreshDirect, Hungryroot and several leading retail accounts later this year. The three-year-old company last month raised $6.1 million in Series A funding after seeing its revenue grow nearly five-fold year-over-year in 2020.

Keishindo Makes Good Use Of Seafood Waste

June 27, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Nagoya-based Japanese snack maker is turning discarded food scraps such as shrimp heads and udon noodle scraps into sustainable shrimp crackers. The 150-year-old company is known for its shrimp crackers made from shrimp surimi (paste), wheat and soy, as well as whole grilled shrimps. Usually, only the flesh of shrimps is used, while the shrimp heads are discarded. With the help of high school students and a curry udon restaurant chain, the company developed a spicy curry-flavored shrimp cracker made with shrimp heads and edible off-cuts of udon noodles. The new product is sold online and in retail stores, as well as airport and train stations across the country. The firm is also open to export opportunities.

Amarea Creates Nutritious Snacks From Seaweed

June 23, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The two-year-old Chilean health food company has developed a line of seaweed sticks and seaweed chips, both of which come in olive oil, sesame, and spicy flavors. In addition to seaweed, the snacks contain algae that is native to the Chilean coast. The company says the snacks are healthy, nutritious, and sustainable, because the seaweed used does not require the application of water, soil, or fertilizer to create. Each of the snacks has only three ingredients, one of which is always widely-available algae. Amarea recently expanded into the U.S. market with the dual purpose of bolstering its local South American communities and catering to the needs of health-conscious consumers.

Suppliers See Continued Rise In Plant-based BFY Snacks

June 21, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
As the pandemic in the U.S. winds down, consumers are again thinking of convenience as they leave the house for work, education and social events. But they have not lost their focus on healthy snacks, and that has led to a surge in plant-based treats. Suppliers listed key themes dominating the snacking space: closer-to-nature, wholesome ingredients like plant proteins; increased use of whole-food ingredients like ancient grains, beans, nuts, and seeds; the emergence of puffed pea crisps, multigrain crackers, and nutritional bars with low sugar, a demand for children’s snacks that deliver better nutrition; a growing emphasis on dairy- and meat-free recipes; and greater emphasis on flavor, including exotic flavor combinations, in plant-based snacks like alternative jerky or sticks.

California Walnut Board Wants America To Embrace Walnuts As Healthy Snack

June 17, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Folsom, Calif.-based organization that represents the state’s walnut growers and handlers says its Snacking Retail Campaign, beginning in July, is designed to focus a spotlight on the benefits of walnuts as a nutritious snack. The campaign, which includes participation by more than 7,400 U.S. food retailers, is based on the research finding that people who eat walnuts enjoy them most often as a snack. Surveys have found that walnuts are often combined with other ingredients; Americans want snacks that deliver taste, texture (often crunchy), and health benefits; and they are about evenly divided between salty or sweet flavors. The campaign comprises a walnut cookbook, custom signage and displays, value-added offers, social media activities, and ads with streaming audio, digital video, and radio tags highlighting the participating retailers.

Grocery Retailers Should Expect A Mix Of “True Innovation,” And Snack “Renovation”

June 15, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Market researcher Mintel says new snack product development is on the rise again, and is taking one of two forms that grocery retailers should be aware of. “True innovation” results in the introduction of “something brand new to the world.” Snack “renovation,” on the other hand, is the development of new varieties of an existing snack line through repackaging, better formulations, relaunches, or extensions. According to Mintel, smaller companies are more likely to come out with true innovation and new brands than major players that rely more on renovation of well-established portfolios.  An example is forty-year-old Partners Crackers (Des Moines, Wash.), which is offering a “retro” line of All American snack crackers, including Crispy Cornbread, Sweet Butter, Crispy Cheese, and Lightly Salted varieties. The company says store buyers are enthusiastic about the “renovated” snack lines and “are gearing up for what they see as a very busy second half of this year.”

NZ Company Upcycles Rejected Kiwi Fruit Into Premium Snacks

June 13, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Nelson, NZ-based Little Beauties says it is investing millions of dollars “to make classy snacks” from rejected gold kiwifruit that otherwise would be fed to cows or dumped. The company has raised NZ$4 million ($2.9 million) from local investors over the past two years to expand and automate the drying of kiwifruit, feijoas, and berries. The new machines do the work of five people who used to peel, slice, and place fruit on drying trays. Export volumes are small at present, and getting shipping space is an issue as COVID-19 continues to disrupt supply lines. About 40 percent of sales come from Australia, “much of it from homesick Kiwis pining for feijoas and happy to buy the freeze-dried version.” A recent partnership with Trade Aid has resulted in that organization taking over the job of dipping organic gold kiwifruit slices in organic dark chocolate, a premium product aimed at the U.S. market.

BitesWeLove Launches Pea-Based Snacks Into Sainsbury’s

June 11, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The six-year-old Dutch (Amsterdam) snack brand’s three healthy Crunchy Peas snacks are being introduced into Sainsbury's through the retailer's Future Brands initiative. The vegan, high-fiber, low-fat Sea Salt & Black Pepper, Smoked Paprika, and Sour Cream & Jalapeño variants ($3.16/100g) are now available in 70 stores on an initial four-month trial. The move into the U.K. market represents a major opportunity, the company says: "We wanted to launch in the U.K. since we started, it was our dream to do so," said co-director Liesbeth Gouwens. A number of established snacking brands are relaunching healthier versions of their products in a bid to escape the pending U.K. HFSS clampdowns. Eat Real, for example, is reformulating its Sea Salt and Tomato & Basil Hummus Chips, reducing their salt content by more than 50 percent.

Glanbia Survey Finds New Snacking Patterns In U.K.

June 11, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The survey commissioned by the Chicago-based flavor and nutritional ingredients company found that 49 percent of those who snack are more likely to choose a healthy product at home than outside of residence (10 percent) and in the workplace (10 percent). Forty-nine percent of hybrid workers (working both at home and in the office) say they would be conscious of what they eat to stay healthy while hybrid working. Of those working in a hybrid pattern, 25 percent say they would eat more snacks as meal replacements, while 31 percent agreed they would choose more on-the-go snacks due to their working routine. One odd finding: 33 percent of consumers admit to snacking more when people aren’t around. Glanbia’s nutritional solutions include proteins, custom premix solutions, plant-based nutrition, bioactive ingredients, and cheese.

Nutritional Labeling On “Harmful” Food Products Didn’t Affect Mexican Shoppers

June 10, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Brand consultant Kantar recently found that new obesity-fighting labeling of products considered 'harmful' has not changed the consumption habits of Mexicans. The six-month-old modification to the Official Mexican Standard (NOM) 051, designed to fight obesity and promote health eating, obliges companies to place information stamps on packaging warning of excess calories, sugar, carbohydrates, sodium, and other ingredients. Kantar found, however, that despite being implemented on a massive scale, the measure has had a very low impact on the country. The main reason is that there are no alternatives to replace these unhealthy products.

Chinese Snack Company’s IPO Underscores The Country’s Growing Demand For Snacks

June 8, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The IPO filing by Henan-based spicy snack maker Weilong Delicious Global Holdings is a clear indicator of how important snacks have become in the Chinese food industry.

Pipsnacks Founders Remain Focused On Salty Corn Snacks – For Now

June 8, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The co-founder of the Brooklyn, N.Y., maker of Pipcorn puffed cheese snacks and crackers says new product development is still focused on bagged salty corn-based snacks. Jennifer Martin says “the sky’s the limit” when it comes to high-quality corn-based salty snacks, mainly because many classic nostalgic snacks – made with GMOs and artificial ingredients – could be replicated “in a natural way.” But in the long term the company has a lot of other ideas, completely outside of salty snacks, that focus on a high-quality corn ingredient. And, Martin notes, that there are other seeds, ancient grains perhaps, that are worth looking at. “We’re not tied to corn,” she says. “We’re corn today, but there’s definitely an opportunity to grow outside of corn in the future.”

Snacks Increasingly Cater To Followers Of All Types Of Diets

June 7, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Data from SPINS and New Hope Network show that any of the popular diets – gluten-free, vegan, keto, paleo, etc. – have corresponding snacks. Diet-specific snacks aren’t a new phenomenon, but a couple of “overwhelming and overlapping trends” are driving their growth. Label claims such as gluten-free, organic, non-GMO and vegan are driving sales, along with cleaner labels that highlight allergen-free and high protein ingredients. Consumers also are seeking products that are free from artificial sweeteners and colors and offer unusual flavors. Among the players: Earnest Eats (snacking avocados); Rind Snacks, (crispy thin-cut fruit chips with the peel on); Elma Farms (steamed and marinaded asparagus snacks); and New York-based Union (crunchy charcuterie chips in genoa, sopressata, and chorizo varieties that promote regenerative sourcing).

Indian Consumers Increasingly Demand Clean-Label Snacks

June 7, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
“No additives or preservatives” is a number one claim associated with clean-label snacks in India. Clean-label snacks have grown from 11 percent of total snack launches in the 12 months to January 2017, to 19 percent between February 2020 and January 2021, according to Mintel. Moreover, as products with “free-from” claims on packages raise consumer awareness about specific ingredients to avoid, the demand for such formulations is likely will rise. Prior to the pandemic, hunger and energy were the key drivers of snacking, but not anymore. Today it's the search for comfort, stress-reduction, health benefits, and clean ingredients that moves consumers. The study conducted among 3,000 Indian adults shows how brands can emphasize naturalness and no “nasties” as a means to justify snacking and remove guilt.
