Top 100 Food Product Ideas in March

From Digestion-Aiding Snack Bars to Grab-and-Go Meat Trays

— April 1, 2017 — Lifestyle
Whether it is granola bars that aid in digestion or protein-rich meat trays, the March 2017 food product trends reveal an ongoing rise in functional snacking. Not only are consumers eating more between meals, but they are also looking to snack on foods that will improve their overall health.

One of the newer examples of functional snacking is the rise of probiotics and other edible digestive aids. Indeed, the March 2017 food product trends reveal that probiotics are no longer limited to just yogurt. Some unique examples of digestion-aiding snacks include Eat Natural's Bars with Benefits, Project Juice's Sprouted Almonds and siggi's new drinkable yogurts.

In addition to probiotics, there is also an ongoing demand for snacks that are rich in protein. Unlike the chalky protein bars of the past, today's high-protein snacks can include everything from granola to tofu bites.
