Snacking more throughout the day by eating a variety of smaller, wholesome meals is becoming increasingly popular with consumers.

In fact, manufacturers are increasing their usage of nuts and seeds in the snack products they offer.

Since nuts and seeds are rife with protein and fiber, it’s only natural that a wholesome snack be filled with those items. According to an article in, The Journal of American College of Nutrition[1] found that consumers who ate 0.25 oz. of nuts per day had four fewer pounds of mean body weight and 0.8 in. smaller waist circumference.

But, nuts and seeds can’t always stand alone. Most snack manufacturers of bars, trail mix, granola and cereal need a glue or sweet flavor to bind these items together. That’s where honey comes in.

Special K’s Honey Nut Cereal Bars include both crunchy nuts and honey in every bite. Almonds, peanuts and other tree nuts are the main components of the bars.

For those who like to snack more with their hands, Biena Foods provides consumers with Honey Roasted Chickpea Snacks. Real wildflower honey mixed with sea salt blends sweet and salty together. Tropical Foods’ Buffalo Nuts line now includes Honey Roasted Buffalo Nuts mixed with buffalo wing flavor.

And, for granola lovers who enjoy granola on the go, back to Nature Foods offers granola clusters with roasted almonds and flax seed, sweetened with honey fruit and cane juices. Since researchers say that consumers find almonds the most essential nut, this granola mix is a great way to satisfy nutty needs.
