Today´s expectations to human nutrition

Consumers are becoming aware of the positive health effect good nutrition provides. Today, they not only expect their food to be naturally derived but are also actively choosing certain products to maintain their well-being. Satisfying this demand contributes to tackling today’s health challenges like overweight and obesity, cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis or diabetes.

Beyond these developments, the trend is moving towards nutrition that matches people’s individual lifestyles. Food products are expected to boost performance in a balanced way, to reduce sugar and fat consumption, to increase dietary fibre intake or to substitute dairy without compromising on taste and texture. At the same time, they have to answer the on-the-go needs of modern consumers. In other words, consumer demand for convenience and easy-to-prepare food continues, while nutrition today has to meet an ever-growing variety of additional expectations.
