However, in recent years, demand has risen for portable foods featuring cleaner labels and greater nutritional appeal—not to mention impressive taste and variety. Options such as jerky, yogurt, puffed snacks, functional beverage shots, refrigerated snack kits, powders and bars are meeting these demands. Inclusions are also thriving, from probiotics, protein, turmeric and vegetables to superfoods.
