Nutritious offerings with positioning such as vegetarian, protein-packed, low sodium or organic meet a variety of consumer desires. And advances in formulation and processing are allowing for flavorful, upscale creations that quickly become repeat purchases. Selecting the right ingredients in formats best suited for a specific application is key, and anything lending a health halo to the product will provide additional appeal.
