Better-For-You Snacks Are Gaining Traction

April 21, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the move to healthier foods and beverages, with startups and challenger brands disrupting the category. PeaTos founder, Nick Desai, says the main driver for this is access to information. Consumers are better informed, and this puts pressure on food companies and regulators. Shaunak Amin, founder and CEO of SnackMagic, says new brands, many launched online, are “more holistic lifestyle brands”, but “taste is always king…brands should strike the right balance between marrying good taste with function, innovative brand messaging and sustainability.” Nick Desai said “PeaTos has always looked to bridge the gap between our desire for tasty and fun snacks with our desire to be better about nutrition,” and that the brand wants to eliminate the need for a compromise. According to SnackMagic’s CPGpulse data, consumers want to try new products but stay close to well-known formats. Shaunak Amin said that while it’s “important to explore new flavors”, there should be “a familiar form factor.”

Snacking Is Ripe For Innovation Focused On Benefits And Sensory Experience

April 20, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
In an interview with FoodIngredientsFirst, Harbinder Maan from the Almond Board of California, says the “snacking space is seeing increased competition that is challenging brands to offer a nexus of nutrition benefits and new sensory experiences”, and that flavor is a key driver. As pandemic restrictions ease, snacking at home has waned. David Deeley, insights manager at Kerry Group, said there is more demand for out-of-home snacking and “we are seeing a revitalized demand for smaller, on-the-go formats.” John Powers from ADM said people are looking for convenient snack options to incorporate in their lives. Sonja Matthews, at Glanbia Nutritionals, believes consumers now expect snacks to both taste good and provide health benefits with protein fortified snacks growing in popularity. Maan thinks consumers may seek “permissible” or “better-for-you” indulgence, with a more mindful snacking approach, and that busy lifestyles mean snacks “with mood benefits have recently emerged to satisfy consumers who are using food to contribute to their mental wellness”. Maan promotes almonds for this benefit. Deeley says Kerry is seeing demand for “snacks and treats as part of a balanced lifestyle, from a mental well-being perspective, offering security and stability in an otherwise unpredictable world.” Powers believes consumers want snacks to support their emotional needs, and that flavor and texture play a significant role here, with consumers drawn to familiar tastes. Consumers also want to try something new, such as snacks with regional spice blends, or new textural experiences, such as “crunchy snacks, gooey candies and cooling sensations from ingredients like mint,” according to Powers. Matthews sees growing interest in snacks that improve focus, boost energy or provide calming benefits.

Keto Brand Catalina Snacks Sees Growth Amongst Consumers Without Dietary Needs

April 19, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
Keto snacks company Catalina Snacks is seeing fast growth and proving that 'keto' has broader consumer appeal beyond low-carb diet followers. Founded in 2017 as a direct-to-consumer brand, Catalina Snacks built up a loyal base of consumers looking for low-carb snacks to fit their dietary needs. It has since grown a more diverse following and attracted consumers without dietary needs but with interest in reducing carbs and sugar. Founder Krishna Kaliannan accredits this to the widespread popularisation of the keto movement that has educated consumers on the harms of eating high-carb and sugar diets. Catalina Snacks has 22 SKUs across three product categories of cereals, cookies, and snack mixes. All its products contain low sugar and high fiber and protein by using a mix of pea protein, potato fiber, non-GMO corn fiber and chicory root fiber combined with sugar alternatives such as stevia, monk fruit, and allulose. Catalina Snacks products are sold in over 15,000 stores nationwide including Kroger, Whole Foods Market, Costco and Target. According to the company, Catalina Snacks has become the #6 fastest-growing natural brand in the conventional channel registering 381% year-over-year growth. It is also reportedly the #1 selling SKU and #4 brand by dollar sales in the natural cereal channel.

Pulse-Based Snacks Continue To Grow In Popularity

April 18, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
Pulse-based snacks are gaining ground within the long-standing, grain-free snack market. Prominent examples include longstanding chickpea-based snack brand Hippeas and the UK’s new lu-based hummus brand Tarwi Foods. While there are multiple alternatives to wheat and rice such as cassava, nuts and root vegetables, pulses are gaining popularity due to its high nutritional value. Pulses contain high levels of protein and fibre and can reduce the fat content of formulations by bulking it out. Pulses also have the potential to improve the texture and shelf life of products. Therefore, pulses align well with health-focused consumers, especially those prioritizing more sustainable, plant-based protein. Despite their growing presence, pulse flours represented only 0.9% of the 2021 global flours market. However, the global pulse ingredients market is predicted to reach $3.06 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 5.2%. Peas are predicted to be the dominant pulse option for manufacturers in the future.

The Struggles Of Reformulating HFSS-Friendly Chips

April 17, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
Chip brands, including as Walkers and Golden Wonder, are reformulating existing products and launching new ones to avoid upcoming HFSS regulations in October. However, making chips HFSS-friendly has proven difficult as they are normally fried in oil and covered in salty seasonings. To overcome these challenges, companies are changing cooking method, using potato alternatives and adapting seasonings. Manufacturers have been experimenting with different cooking methods long before the announcement of HFSS regulations. KP Snacks' Popchips launched in the UK a decade ago and air-pops dried potato and rice to create its lower-calorie snacks. Companies have also looked to vegetables and pulses as an alternative to potatoes. Hippeas has been air-popping chickpeas since 2016 and KP brand Tyrrells recently launched two low-fat lentil chip lines. However, these efforts must be met with changes to the chip seasoning, as most of them are high in sugar and salt. Some flavors like salt & vinegar avoid sugar but make up for it by having lots of salt. On the other hand, cheesy and smoky chips flavors tend to have a high sugar content. Spicy and chilli-based seasonings tend to be non-HFSS friendly as its intense flavor reduces the need for added sugar and salt.  


Some brands are choosing not to go through the trouble of making products non-HFSS. For example, Kettle Foods has decided against reformulating its core line for now. There is still uncertainty over how well non-HFSS chip lines will sell, even if they can be promoted. Many consumers are sceptical of BFY snacks and tend to purchase chips as an indulgent treat, knowing it isn’t a healthy option. However, the long-term hope is that the new wave of non-HFSS ranges will gradually change consumer tastes and behaviors.

ECB And KP Snacks Warned Over Junk Food Ads Targeting Under-16s

April 13, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
The UK's advertising regulator, the Advertising Standards Authority, has banned two adverts for The Hundred cricket tournament following public complaints they promote unhealthy eating to under-16s. The ASA sent a warning to the England and Wales Cricket Board and sponsor KP Snacks; both companies assured the ASA it would not happen again. The first ad was an email sent by the ECB to people on its database who had bought an under-16 ticket or indicated they had children in their household. The email offered free bats and balls and featured a bright, colorful cartoon image of cricket players accompanied by logos for The Hundred and KP Snacks brand McCoy's crisps. The second ad was a paid-for post on KP Snack’s Butterkist UK's Instagram account, which featured a picture of its Crunchy Toffee Popcorn alongside a cricket bat and ball. Sustain’s Children’s Food Campaign and Food Active were behind the public push to ban these ads. These complaints are part of their larger mission to bring new food and drink advertising restrictions and to eradicate HFSS food sponsorship of sports.

Mondelez’s Snacking Future

April 6, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
According to Mondelez SnackFutures VP, Brigette Wolf, consumers are looking for healthy and diverse snacking options. During COVID, Mondelez saw sales in its core business of cookies and crackers rise as customers sought out familiar comfort foods. Wolf finds that customers are now looking to expand their snacking routines and discover new brands and products. COVID also contributed to the already growing trend of healthy snacking as consumers became more conscious of their wellbeing and immunity. To better tap into emerging snack trends, Mondelez launched its innovation arm SnackFutures in 2018. Since its launch, SnackFutures has developed new in-house brands (Dirt Kitchen Snacks, CaPao) and invested in others (Uplift Food, Hu). Last year it started CoLab, a startup program for early-stage, mission-driven brands that helps build start-ups by connecting them with internal and external resources at Mondelez. This year’s class include Popcorn for the People, Moonshot, Yolélé and Nunbelievable.

Walkers’ New Non-HFSS Plan Receives Backlash From Fans

April 5, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
Walkers has followed in other brands’ footsteps by releasing plans to introduce non-HFSS alternatives ahead of UK government restrictions. Walkers states it will change its Walkers Baked, Doritos Dippers and Popworks products so they are not considered HFSS. The company also plans to invest £35 million over the next three years into healthier product lines. This will include developing new products as well as reformulating some of its existing ranges. Walkers aims to make at least half of its sales from non-HFSS or low-calorie snacks by 2025, but alterations to its iconic products risk upsetting its loyal fanbase. In the wake of Walkers’ new launch of its '45 per cent less salt' chip range, fans have taken to Twitter to describe the alternatives as ‘terrible’ and ‘rubbish.’ Other fans have pledged to not buy the low-salt alternative and instead buy ‘proper’ chips. Despite this backlash, Walkers claimed the new non HFSS range has performed strongly in consumer taste testing.

According to the marketing director of food solution company ADM, John Powers, adding pulses to snack products can be an effective way for brands to attract health-conscious consumers. Pulses such as beans, lentils and chickpeas offer high nutritional value compared to cereal grain such as wheat, rice and oats. Pulses are also a good source of protein, fiber, calcium and minerals and are also filling.  In addition, pulses can contribute to the sensory experience of a snack as they add different textural, flavor and color profiles. Furthermore, as a natural ingredient, they give customers the illusion of being ‘closer to nature.’ However, pulses do come with difficulties such as choosing the right type of bean and bean-to-water ratio to use to achieve the desired function and texture.

Jonas Brothers’ New Popcorn And Other Celebrity Vegan Snack Brands

April 1, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
This week, pop rock band the Jonas Brothers launched Rob’s Backstage Popcorn at 2,800 Walmart stores nationwide. The savory and sweet vegan popcorn is marketed as ‘the Jonas Brothers’ favorite backstage snack.’ The brand was created by the three Jonas Brothers, consumer good business The Naked Market, and family friend Rob Garbowsky, who introduced the brothers to his popcorn in 2011 during rehearsals and performances. The brothers decided to introduce it to fans in 2021 during the Jonas Brothers’ Remember This Tour until they decided to bring it consumers nationwide with Walmart. Rob’s Backstage Popcorn joins a growing range of celebrity founded vegan products. Last year, Hall of Fame basketball player Scottie Pippen co-founded popcorn brand Husk, which sells organic and all-natural popcorn in six. Vegan snack brands are also drawing celebrity investment. In 2017, Leonardo DiCaprio invested an undisclosed amount into chickpea-based snack brand HIPPEAS, and he has since invested in other environmentally friendly food products. Outstanding Foods has received investments from celebrities such as musical artist Snoop Dogg, actress Daniella Monet, and NBA player Javale McGee. The brand is known for its PigOut Pigless Pork Rinds and has recently launched its vegan Outstanding Cheese Balls.

12 Tides Launches Kelp Chips To Conserve Oceans

March 31, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
San Francisco-based start-up and B Corp, 12 Tides, has launched with its Puffed Kelp Chips. The vegan, gluten-free snack is positioned as healthy and environmentally sustainable and comes in three flavors: Sea Salt, Chili Pepper and Everything. 12 Tides developed its kelp-based chips to improve the food system’s impact on the oceans and make use of regenerative resources. Kelp requires no pesticides, fertilizers, land, or freshwater and positively impacts the ocean by removing excess CO2 and restoring its ecosystem. Furthermore, it is high in vitamins, minerals, omega-3s and antioxidants.  All kelp used in 12 Tides’ products is locally sourced from regenerative ocean farms in Frenchman Bay, Maine. To align with its eco-conscious values, the Kelp Chips are packaged in plastic-free, industrially compostable materials, and the company donates one percent of all sales to SeaTrees, an organisation that helps conserve oceans, including through the reforestation of Californian kelp.

Journalist Criticizes Kellogg’s Attempts To Head Off U.K. Regulation

March 30, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
An article in the Financial Times has critiqued the move by Kellogg to sue the U.K. government for failing to account for the benefits of milk when it brings in restrictions on sugary foods. The author, Camilla Cavendish, said that companies like Kellogg have managed to hide behind claims that fatty and sugary treats are fine as long as they form a part of an otherwise healthy and balanced diet, but that does not take into account humans’ inability to resist temptation and the growing obesity problem. Cavendish adds that although we might not be lab rats and have a choice, it’s not easy to “compete with the marketing geniuses who have managed to convince us that ultraprocessed stuff of virtually no nutri-value is actually food. And who have persuaded hard-pressed families to spend money on it.” She was the head of the Downing Street policy unit under former U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron and is a senior fellow at the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government, Harvard Kennedy School. Cavendish remembered when she was a part of the government that imposed a levy on soft drinks in 2016. Coca-Cola at the time threatened to take the government to court but backed down. Cavendish also argues that the National Health Service spends over £6 billion annually treating obesity-related health problems, and that will rise and that pressure is mounting from investors to avoid junk food companies becoming “potentially risky stranded assets”.

India Leans Towards Labelling In Fight Against Obesity

March 27, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
As India experiences a growing obesity problem, its government wants to use labelling to stem the tide and has delegated the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India to implement the changes. Government departments, including the health ministry, also have a role to play, and the consumer affairs ministry will provide advertising guidelines to limit the promotion of junk food. The issue of labels on the front of packaging, detailing how much fat, salt and sugar processed food contains, has been a discussion point for a while. These details are currently on the back of packs, but government pressure could accelerate change. Obesity is a major problem in the country. The Indian Journal of Community Medicine found that over 135 million people there are obese.

The line will be available this month in three flavours: Mild Cheese & Onion, Lightly Salted and A Dash of Salt & Vinegar.

More Non-HFSS Snack Releases in U.K.

More snack brands are launching and reformulating products ahead of the U.K. government’s upcoming HFSS embargo, which limits the placement and promotion of HFSS snacks.
