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.

Innovation in Chinese snacks is also lively and competitive as companies strive to develop new combinations of flavors, including spicy, salty, sweet, sour, fishy, fruity, and liquor-laced. The snack segment in China is expected to grow an average of 5.7 percent a year in the next four years to 453 billion yuan ($71 billion).

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.

Internal Nestlé Report Admits 60 Percent Of Its Mainstream Foods Are Unhealthy

June 2, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The report, which excluded categories such as baby formula, pet food, coffee, and medical nutrition, said come categories of the foods and drinks included in the 60 percent “will never be healthy” no matter what changes are made. Nevertheless, the company has worked for years to improve the nutritional footprint of its products, reducing sugar and sodium content in its products, and adding ingredients such as whole grain, protein, fiber, and micronutrients. These efforts co-exist alongside a guiding company principle: a healthy diet means finding a balance between well-being and enjoyment. In other words, there must be room for indulgent foods, consumed in moderation.

Mondelēz Australia Sees Benefits To Its Snack Business From COVID-19

June 1, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The pandemic’s creation of a work-at-home culture in Australia certainly benefited the snack industry in general and Mondelēz in particular, according to the company’s State of Snacking report for 2020, based on a survey of more than 500 consumers. Significant was the finding that consumers, particularly younger ones, snacked more frequently during the lockdowns. Ninety-one percent of adults said they are either snacking more or at the very least the same amount; 37 percent said they have been snacking more during the pandemic than before it. Seventy percent of Millennials and centennials (Gen Z) especially say they prefer snacks over meals. As to snack choices, 58 percent said they pay attention to the types and content of snacks eaten, and 64 percent maintain control over the portion sizes eaten.

Asia Pacific Region Touts Insects As Sustainable Protein Source

May 31, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Governments and food industry players in the region are increasingly enthusiastic about the insect-based food industry as an alternative protein source that is both healthy and sustainable. Globally, the edible insect industry is expected to increase in value to hit more than $1 billion by 2023, with more than 2,100 insect species eaten as food in countries worldwide. In the Asia Pacific region, research analysts predict this market to hit $270 million by 2024. South Korea is a leader in the region, thanks to laws and frameworks already in place governing the development of the sector. As a result of the government’s investment – including its Third Comprehensive Plan For Nurturing The Insects and Sericulture Industry – farmers and food firms involved in the insect-food industry increased 280 percent to 2,535 between 2015 and 2019. Other countries actively building an insect-based food industry include Australia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia.

May 31, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
When Boston-based allergy-friendly 88Acres bakery makes its cinnamon-flavored Seed+Oat Bar Thins, a popular free snack on JetBlue airlines flights, the edges are trimmed to ensure clean lines. As a "zero food waste" bakery, however, it had to find some way to upcycle those trimmings, and that's how Cinnamon Maple Edge'nola was born. Made in a facility that's free from peanuts, tree nuts, gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, and sesame, Edge’nola contains organic sunflower seeds, organic pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, gluten-free certified oats, brown rice syrup, maple syrup, organic cinnamon, and sea salt.

Macro Snacks Founder Rebrands To Escape Niche Market Shackles

May 26, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Thanks to an SKU Accelerator program, the founder of the Charlotte, N.C.-based snack chip start-up realized that rebranding was necessary to fully scale his product. Justin Wiesehan says a lot of customer research among customers and non-customers convinced him that being a diet-focused, niche product was very restrictive. He also found that repeat customers were using the snack as an alternative to less-healthy options. As a result, Wiesehan hopes the new name – HA!, for Healthy Alternative – along with bolder, louder packaging, will land the chips on grocers' shelves next to familiar crunchy snack foods. Each of the seven flavors of HA! chips is gluten-free – all but Pizza Pie are vegan friendly – and each bag contains 11 to 12 grams of protein. The products are available online and soon in retail grocery stores.

Mintel: Being Healthy Is No Longer Just About Losing Weight

May 25, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Bakers and snack makers in the BFY arena need to be aware of how the pandemic has shifted consumer dietary concerns and behaviors if they want to take advantage of emerging opportunities, market researcher Mintel says. No longer is being healthy just about losing weight or exercising. The data show that consumers’ top priorities now center on strengthening the immune system, managing stress, improving sleep quality, and eating more healthful foods. And, issues such as sustainability and contributing to a healthy society are now part of the BFY mindset. Products that promote wellness – clean label, natural, reduced sugar or salt, etc. – are even more important since the onset of the pandemic. Lastly, there is an opportunity for bakers and snack makers to introduce foods that promote mental and emotional health.

Takis Expands Super-Hot Snack Lineup

May 25, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Mexican snack brand, owned by Grupo Bimbo business unit Barcel, is branching out beyond its mouth-singeing corn chips lineup into popcorn, chips, and other fiery salty snacks. Takis Waves Fuego (wavy potato chips), Takis Watz (spiral stick), Takis Pop (popcorn), and Takis Stix (stick-shaped corn snacks) all deliver the fiery flavors of the original tortilla snack. Takis first expanded beyond tortilla snacks with the introduction of Takis Hot Nuts in October 2020. Launched in the U.S. in 2001, Takis has reported 25 percent growth year-to-date, outpacing the salty snacks category, which sees 10 percent growth year-to-date. Despite stiff competition, hot snacks is a growing category.

Federal Judge Certifies Plaintiff Classes In KIND Advertising Suit

May 25, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Despite the lack of a uniform definition of the term “natural,” especially as it applies to foods, a federal judge in the Southern District of N.Y. has certified three classes of plaintiffs in three states who allege that KIND LLC, maker of eight brands of BFY snack bars, deceptively marketed several products as “all natural” and “non-GMO” even though they purportedly contain synthetic and genetically modified ingredients. According to an article in the National Law Review, the decision by Judge William H. Pauley III was “somewhat surprising, given the deep reservoir of class certification decisions finding that, where plaintiffs fail to establish a controlling definition for a key term or phrase in the challenged advertisement, individual issues predominate and class certification should be denied.” Pauley found, nevertheless, that the definitions cited by the plaintiffs weren’t all that different from one another. The FDA has declined to adopt a formal definition of the term “natural.”

May 24, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Hanover, Pa.-based chips and pretzels maker is joining with Ferrara (Chicago, Ill.), a related company of the Ferrero Group, to respond to growing consumer demand for snack food variety packs.

Beginning in January 202, the companies will launch a diverse portfolio of different sized snack variety packs, competitively priced with suggested retail prices ranging from $4.99 to $12.99. The variety packs will include cookies, pretzels, cheese balls, popcorn and more.

Glanbia Nutritionals Says Its Ingredients Help Snack Makers Stay On Trend

May 24, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Chicago-based food ingredients company says market data support the use of a couple of its protein products by snack makers. For example, while the plant-based protein segment is considered a niche market compared to dairy-based protein, consumer interest and demand are growing exponentially, thanks to more diversified diets, consciousness of sustainability issues, animal welfare issues, and allergen avoidance. In response, the company has created BarHarvest Pea Protein, which adds protein fortification and is an allergen-free, gluten-free, kosher protein ingredient. Still, consumers in some countries are loyal to dairy, so Glanbia created whey protein concentrate solutions OptiSol 1005 and 1007, which are heat stable even in high processing conditions.
