On Trend by IFT (Booth #2242)
New this year, IFT’s On Trend display (booth #2242), powered by Innova Market Insights, will allow attendees to see the latest innovative products or services, as well as relevant solutions for the top trends facing the food industry. Categories include the following:
- Proteins: Protein is top of mind for many consumers, which are adding it to their diets to help maintain energy levels, support overall health, improve muscle tone, and feel satisfied by a meal or snack.
- Gluten-Free: While a very small percentage of consumers have a severe immune response to gluten, many believe they are sensitive to gluten or feel that the avoidance of gluten makes for a healthier diet.
- Food Safety: With new rules and ongoing implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), food safety—always a priority—is a higher-profile topic than ever before.
- Health & Wellness: Whether it’s weight management, functional fortification, or myriad other health and wellness areas, many different types of food ingredients can help product developers deliver more nutritious foods and beverages.
- Clean & Clear Labeling: Consumers are looking for more natural, simpler, and less processed foods and beverages and the food industry is responding to the challenge with more whole foods and closer to nature ingredients that are recognized and understood by the consuming public.
