The snack industry is continuously evolving to cater to the growing demand for healthier and more nutritional alternatives. Nutritional and whole grain extruded snacks are becoming increasingly popular due to their ability to provide a satisfying taste while offering various health benefits.
Healthier and plant-based options
Consumers are increasingly seeking healthier and plant-based options in the puffed and extruded snack category. Snacks made with vegetable-based ingredients, such as cauliflower stalks and butternut squash stalks, are gaining popularity for their unique taste and nutritional benefits. Plant-based proteins, such as those derived from whole grains, beans, and pulses, are also being incorporated into snack products to cater to this growing demand.
