Innovations in Snacks and Sweets



In 2018, the worldwide snack industry was worth $439.9 billion, and experts predict that it will expand at a 6.2 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Knowing what consumers will be seeking for in terms of snack food options in the future days will aid companies in the sector in preparing for this expansion.


RECYCLABLE FOOD AND SNACK PACKAGING

Consumers are more concerned about sustainable practises. In terms of packaging, giving customers products that they know are environmentally friendly will influence their purchasing decisions.


SNACKS IN PLASTIC-FREE CONTAINERS

Plastic has a harmful influence on the environment that everyone is aware of. When creating snacks for consumers, producers should think about using compostable paper packages that are good for both the environment and the individuals who eat them.


SUSTAINABLE RICE CEREALS

Producing food that is environmentally and culturally responsible is a trendy and inventive snack trend. To make naturally delicious and nutrient-dense cereals, several manufacturers use organic and fair-trade grains, nuts, and dried fruits.


ADDITIVE-FREE PREPACKAGED COOKIES

Parents and caregivers want to know that their children's food is free of preservatives and needless additives. As a result, companies should consider selling cookies and sweet treats free of unneeded ingredients such as artificial flavours and food dyes when producing snacks for the health-conscious.


IMMUNITY-BOOSTING SNACKS

Following prebiotics and probiotics, postbiotics are becoming more popular as a way to improve gut health. This bioactive chemical is distinct from the others in that it is left behind after prebiotics and probiotics have been digested by the body. Postbiotics help to boost the immune system while also reducing inflammation.


Healthy postbiotics include:


Various B vitamins

Vitamin K

Amino acids

Antimicrobial peptides


According to a 2020 survey conducted by Innova, 60% of consumers worldwide look for innovative snacks that support immune health.
