Blue Diamond Almonds

More than 61% of primary grocery shoppers think packaged foods are acceptable when purchasing products that fit a “clean-eating” lifestyle, and 44% said some processing is okay, according to a new study from The NPD Group.

This study surveyed 5,000 consumers to see how clean eating impacted shopping behaviors. More than 80% of clean eaters considered clean eating a lifestyle, and the key focus of clean eaters is finding foods that do not contain chemicals, preservatives, additives or pesticides.

“Clean eating from a product development standpoint may seem discouraging for C.P.G. manufacturers,” said Darren Seifer, food and beverage industry analyst for NPD. “But the good news is packaged goods can still fit the bill with these consumers and attract them to the center of the store.”

These Made With Honey products are packaged goods that still fit the clean eating lifestyle.

Ancient Grains are here to Stay Thursday, October 15th, 2015


Ancient Grains Frozen Waffles, Nature’s Path

As more food and beverage products are featuring ancient grains, consumer interest is continuing to rise, according to market research firm Packaged Facts.

The firm says that during the past year, 19% of U.S. consumers said they have purchased menu or retail items with ancient grains.

With so much interest, innovation is happening in the ancient grains category. While many of the more recent ancient grain product launches continue to be in categories traditionally associated with grain ingredients, other product launches include salty snacks, entrée salads, side dishes, boxed dinner mixes, frozen meat alternatives and yogurt, said David Sprinkle, Packaged Facts research director.
