Tapping into the ‘moderation and restriction’ trend

Consumers around the world are becoming increasingly conscious of their eating habits. This has to do with ageing, media coverage of health and dietary issues and real problems associated with obesity. The resulting ‘moderation and restriction’ trend in food and drink consumption presents food and beverage manufacturers with exciting opportunities.  As consumers demand healthier products, producers face the challenge of creating healthier foods with reduced calorific value and fat and sugar content, while retaining – or even improving – the original flavor and mouthfeel.

Whether you are looking for better-for-you solutions or other nutrition concepts, we can provide you with the right natural ingredients for protein enrichment, reformulation or scientifically proven health benefits – as well as a complete array of services to help you in all your projects.
