5 New Snacks That Are Disrupting The Food Industry

new snacks disrupting food industry healthy snacking innovative brands

Both the snack (multi-billion dollar industry) and food (multi-trillion dollar industry) industries have changed a great deal over the last couple of decades. There have been huge movements to eat healthier overall while maintaining or improving both taste and selection. 

Major trends like low-sugar, gluten-free, nut-free, and organic ingredients are here to stay due to trending diets, allergies, and a growing number of health studies. Protein and natural ingredients are in demand while  many items with sugar and processed ingredients are on the decline.

I've followed these trends closely from different angles as certified personal trainer / nutritionist with a degree in exercise physiology, and as a marketing manager for a large gas station and convenience store chain. I've seen the health recommendations, analyzed consumer buying behavior, and tried out nearly every snack food available in the process. 

The top new food industry disruptors are both healthy for consumers and profitable for the stores, cafes, restaurants, and websites that offer them to customers.
