The rapid growth of snacking can be attributed to multiple factors, including the decline of traditional mealtime rituals, growing focus on health and wellness, and the desire and availability of more individualized eating experiences. And while snacking has traditionally been viewed as unhealthy, consumers are now demanding these foods provide better nutrition and more natural, clean-label, and often plant-based ingredients as the population at large pays more attention to their health amidst a global pandemic and changing attitudes surrounding food and beverages.
From salty snacks, to gluten-free options, to plant-based and digestive and immune health, the snacking landscape is changing rapidly to meet the needs of a more health-conscious consumer that still wants easy-to-consume food in snack form, either as meal replacements or just for on-the-go convenience. There are a number of considerations formulators need to be aware of in order to have a successful snack product that will satisfy their customers.
