Video: Expanding Sports Nutrition to Active Lifestyle

Sports nutrition is a hot market with plenty of potential for new product launches; aligning with the desires of a broader consumer base can bring even greater market success.

Results of the inaugural Mind of the Consumer research study were presented at Ingredient Marketplace 2016. Steve French of the Natural Marketing Institute (NMI) detailed topline insights into what consumers are seeking in the healthy living segment.

Among the revelations, French suggested staying away from “sports nutrition” branding, and instead, focusing on creating “active lifestyle” products, as the terminology invites a broader consumer base.
