Formulating clean label products for dietary patterns – podcast

Lifestyle trends like keto, vegan, gluten free and FODMAP diets present challenges to food scientists who must creatively come up with ways to make products that fall within the nutritional guidelines while keeping the labels as “clean” as possible.

The food and beverage industry is constantly evolving, which means brands must predict market trends and consumer demands and then have the ability to launch an innovative, yet tasty product. The variety of diet plans and lifestyle options have resulted in a slew of food companies wanting to sell shelf-stable snacks to make life easier for consumers who want to follow a restrictive diet plan. They turn to food scientists to help them create products that can meet the keto, gluten free, vegan and FODMAP nutritional metrics, but each diet comes with its own set of unique challenges.

In this SupplySide West edition of the Healthy INSIDER Podcast, Judie Bizzozero, senior editor, Natural Products INSIDER, and Rachel Zemser, CFT, CCS, MS, owner, A la Carte Connections, discuss:

  • Advice for brands or entrepreneurs looking to enter the clean label space.
  • Ingredient selection for clean label products.
