From Tropical Sustenance Smoothies to Nutrient-Dense Bars

 - Nov 5, 2015
Nourishing meal replacements are garnering the interest of time-crunched consumers.
Although previously primarily tied to weight loss, products such as tropical sustenance smoothies and nutrient-dense bars are proving that variety and flavor are broadening the scope of this industry.

Protein and vitamin-rich ingredients are allowing for the minimization of ingredients and volume. This in turn benefits shoppers with tight schedules who, despite busy lifestyles, have no desire to compromise on health despite having to eat on-the-go.

Innovative packaging further enhances the desirability of these alternative meal options.
Whether in the form of handheld snacks or bottled liquids, portability is of the essence, especially for those turning to substitutes while in the car, at work or following a workout.
