Many Americans Make Sure They’re Carrying Snacks At All Times

July 30, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
New research conducted by OnePoll among 2,000 consumers on behalf of sprouted seed snack maker Go Raw finds that seven of 10 carry a treat with them at all times. At least three times a week, more than half said they fill up on a snack food – and not necessarily a healthy one – instead of preparing a balanced meal for themselves. Sixty percent admitted that their first choice of snack is a sugar- or salt-laden one, with the most popular choices being potato chips (56 percent), chocolate (55 percent), and candy (45 percent). More than 53 percent said they would swap out their favorite unhealthy snack for a healthier one if there were more options available at a similar price.

When It Comes To Ingredients, Amarea Keeps Its Seaweed Snacks SImple

July 30, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based snack start-up, with corporate and ingredient roots in Chile, says it is committed to keeping its seaweed snack formulas to three ingredients or less to avoid confusing snack buyers. According to the company, so-called "healthy" snacks simply replace low-quality ingredients with organic or allergy-sensitive alternatives but, at the end of the day, the quantity of ingredients too often remains mind-numbingly long. Amarea’s snacks are made with "cochayuyo," the local name of the indigenous species of seaweed. The Chilean seaweed is a superfood packed with sodium, iodine, folic acid; calcium; potassium, chlorine; sulphur, phosphorus,  and vitamins A, B1, B12, C, D, and E. The only other ingredients in the snack are an oil and a flavoring, like sesame or olive.

Kellogg’s Settles Class Action Lawsuit Over Sugary Cereals

July 28, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Michigan-based breakfast cereals company Kellogg’s (Kellogg Sales Company) has agreed to a $13 million settlement benefiting consumers who purchased certain Kellogg cereals labeled “heart healthy” or “lightly sweetened.” The lawsuit alleged Kellogg violated certain laws by labeling three of its cereals with certain nutritious statements even though plaintiffs alleged the products contained excessive amounts of sugar. The class action lawsuit was open to anyone who purchased Raisin Bran, Smart Start, or Frosted Mini-Wheats cereals between August 29, 2012 and May 1, 2020. The suit (Hadley et al. vs. Kellogg Sales Company) was brought before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California.

Survey Finds Young Europeans Want Snacks That Support Mental Health

July 27, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The research, commissioned by EIT Food and conducted among 2,000 18-24-year-olds in five countries, found that more than half of young Europeans track their food in some way and women especially are actively seeking healthy snacks that prioritize mental health. Many respondents – in fact, 55 percent of those surveyed – think that including calorie counts on food labels and menus can be detrimental to mental health, a figure that rises to 62 percent in the U.K., 60 percent in France, and 61 percent in Germany. Unfortunately, the research shows that young people are being let down. Across Europe, 18–24-year-olds find healthy food more expensive and harder to find on the go, and they feel they lack the information and advice they need to make informed nutritional decisions. The research, conducted in June and July by Opinium, focused on Gen Z-ers in France, Germany, Poland, Spain, and the U.K.

After enduring more than a year of COVID-19 pandemic stress and anxiety, consumers are prioritizing health and safety more than ever before.

U.K. Ponders Tax On Sugary And Salty Foods

July 15, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
A U.K. government-commissioned review says the price of sugary and salty foods should be increased to encourage food companies to make their products healthier. The extra revenue might also help physicians prescribe fruit, vegetables, and cookery classes on the NHS. As reported by the Daily Mail, the so-called "snack tax" would hike the cost of Frosties by 87p ($1.19), Mars bars by 9p ($0.12) and, across the country, families could be paying an extra £3.4 billion ($4.6 billion) a year for their groceries. The recommendations were developed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson's “food tsar” Henry Dimbleby, who founded the health-conscious fast food restaurant chain Leon.

India’s Packaged Food Companies Trim Package Sizes, Hike Prices

July 12, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Thanks to inflation in commodity prices and high transport costs, packaged consumer food companies in India are trimming the weight of smaller-sized packs or hiking prices in categories such as salty snacks, chips, and cookies. Higher prices in commodities like palm oil have been a particular cause of concern for companies. For example, PepsiCo India, which sells the popular Lay’s and Kurkure snacks, might reduce the weight of its $0.07 and $0.14 packs. Parle Products Pvt. Ltd has reduced the weight of smaller biscuit packs. In chips, the company has reduced the size of some packs priced at $0.67. Bikano, which makes salty snacks, cookies, and namkeens, said the rising price of palm oil – it has doubled over the past year – may continue for three to four months.

Magic Spoon Cereal Sticks To Its Successful Social Media-Based Marketing Plan

July 10, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
After six months of research and testing, entrepreneurs Gabi Lewis and Greg Sewitz, creators and sellers of a cricket protein snack bar business, convinced investors that their new breakfast cereal – Magic Spoon – could be sold directly to consumers at a premium price. Three years after launch, the company has raised $16.5 million, and their company – with about 300,000 fans on Instagram – has experienced triple-digit growth year-over-year. And unlike standard breakfast cereals that sell in grocery stores at $4 a box, Magic Spoon – grain-free and keto-friendly with zero-to-two grams of sugar and 13-plus grams of protein, in six flavors – is still sold exclusively online in packs of four, delivered all at once or monthly, for $39. The company remains focused on its social media presence and on building brand awareness with popular influencers and podcasters.

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.

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.
