Esca Bona ingredient trend series: Healthy Oils

Dietary fats are necessary for good health; they provide energy, support cell growth, protect the organs, help the body absorb certain nutrients and contribute to satiety. Despite the benefits, fat content in some foods has been scrutinized for its potential association with increased health risks. However, plant-based ingredients—including better-for-you oils from olive, coconut and sunflower—are gaining considerable traction because they resonate with health-minded consumers, particularly those looking for clean label food and beverage choices.
