Today, consumers are eating healthier habits. Whether eating out or choosing ingredients, more and more people are turning to health-friendly foods.
As consumer demand for healthy food grows, manufacturers need to strengthen their power in this area to meet the growing demand for consumer health. This includes not only product innovation, but also the need to redefine product formulations and use simple labels to articulate the nutritional benefits of products, help consumers identify the ingredients of food and consciously choose foods that are healthy.
1. Create “Healthier” Products for Consumers
Health-conscious consumers are beginning to realize the huge benefits of low-sugar, low-salt, low-fat “better-for-you” foods. At the same time, they also hope that the food fiber, vitamins, minerals and other healthy functional components are higher, and the food taste, texture and shelf life also have high expectations.
2. Meet the Label Needs
Functional ingredients not only make products more attractive to modern consumers, but also communicate the health benefits of ingredients to consumers in a clear and transparent manner. This resonates strongly with consumers. Nearly half (47%) of consumers prefer food and beverage products with identifiable ingredients. A growing number of consumers who want to avoid intake of non-nutritional, unhealthy chemical, synthetic and artificial ingredients are increasingly concerned about food ingredients. At the same time, consumers also attach great importance to nutrition labels that contain healthy and natural ingredients.
More transparent and clearer labels not only help consumers better understand what they consume, but also enhance trust between food manufacturers and customers. As consumers pay more attention to “healthier foods,” food manufacturers face huge opportunities for innovation to articulate the benefits of these products while providing consumers with healthier alternatives.
Functional ingredients and transparent labeling will go a long way towards helping the food and beverage industry meet the challenges that will benefit the health and well-being of consumers and take the market to the next level.
