Consumers Want Ingredients That Provide Inherent Nutrition

The global pandemic has intensified the importance of maintaining a healthy diet, with consumers increasingly looking at healthier options in the food and drink choices they make. Specifically, brands should focus on the functional nutritional benefits provided by their plant-based ingredients. With 61% of consumers interested in cardio health, 56% in digestive, and 55% in immune support2, the opportunity exists to take advantage of consumer interest in plant-based ingredients and build awareness of their intrinsic health benefits.

  • Dietary Fiber - Fiber may play a crucial role in gastrointestinal and cardiovascular health3,4. Beta glucans, a type of soluble fiber, have been shown in studies to support heart health5 and immunity6.
  • Omega-3 ALA - Omega-3 ALA is a type of fatty acid that supports heart health7. Supplementation is needed because it cannot be synthesized by the body.
  • Plant Protein - Not all protein sources are created equally. Studies have shown that replacing red and processed meats with plant-based protein sources may reduce the risk of heart-related illness8.
