DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dghr4z/proteins) has announced the addition of the "Proteins - Classic, Alternative and Exotic Sources: Culinary Trend Tracking Series" report to their offering.
“Proteins - Classic, Alternative and Exotic Sources: Culinary Trend Tracking Series”
After being bombarded in recent years by media and government reports warning of the negative health consequences associated with being overweight or obese, and excess consumption of salt and sodium or trans and saturated fats, consumers are more receptive to information about positive dietary changes they can make to improve their health and quality of life, including the benefits of protein.
This all-new report is ideal for food companies looking to tap into this growing consumer demand for protein.
The report contains five food and beverage profiles that chart key menu and packaged product development opportunities:
- High-protein drinkable and macho yogurt. Yogurt continues to show strong growth in the wake of the Greek yogurt revolution, and projects the U.S. yogurt market to total $9.3B by 2017. Niche segments such as drinkable yogurt & kefir and yogurt marketed to men are aggressively staking claim to their own share of the pie.
- Almonds and nut butters. Nuts have long provided craveable protein goodness, and new nutritional perspective have positioned nuts, and especially almonds, high on the good and good-for-you list. The healthy positioning of almonds and the natural protein boost they give makes them an ideal source of protein for consumers. Nut butters, driven by convenience and portability, are ideal as more indulgent protein sources.
- Snack bars get heartier. High-protein snack bars are leveraging the rise of snacking and the healthful positioning of snack bars in the market.
- Analogs for meat protein. Alternatives to meat are being formulated in ways that are gaining ground as delicious alternatives in their own right, and not just as more nutritionally correct substitutes. Alternative protein sources, including the eggless egg, are foods to watch.
