Citrus Snacking

Citrus ingredients are added to high-calorie snacks for health conscious allure

Implications - Despite a growth in health-conscious living, adopting healthy eating habits can often be a challenge. Seeking to ease into the process, consumers, particularly those drawn to high-sodium snacks, are altering traditional treats with unexpected citrus ingredients for an equally tasty, yet nutritious alternative. This speaks to a desire to adhere to a nutritional lifestyle in a way that still maintains a sense of indulgence and flavor.
