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.
