Probiotics In Healthy Snacks

Market Stats

Snack food sales increased by nearly 30 percent from 2007 to 2012, according to research firm Mintel. Today’s kids are on-the-go and require packaged snacks that tuck into pockets and sport bags. Adults are now snacking more then ever and are getting more selective about their snacking requirements. And for many consumers, meals are morphing into snacks. Snack products that offer a health benefit give them an instant edge in this evolving market.

One healthy strategy would be to add probiotics to your products. The global probiotics market is expected to climb over the next five years to reach $36.7 billion in 2018, according to BCC Research.  And as the market and education on probiotics increases, consumer awareness continues to grow; currently about 80% of consumers know what probiotics are and associate them with a health benefit. The most attractive opportunities and rampant growth areas of this burgeoning market lie in the food and beverage products sector. Now, innovations in temperature-stable strains mean that probiotics are no longer relegated to the dairy case and supplements aisle.

Go With GanedenBC30

GanedenBC30 is a probiotic that can withstand the extreme manufacturing processes necessary for most snacks – a real game changer for the category! How can a probiotic survive in a non-refridgerated snack? GanedenBC30’s unique structure safeguards the cell’s genetic material from the extreme temperature and pressures involved in the manufacturing process, along with the challenges it’s exposed to during digestive transit. It is a Gram-positive spore-forming bacterium that, once germinated, produces L+ lactic acid, which supports good bacteria in the gut while displacing the harmful bacteria. Simply adding appropriate levels of GanedenBC30 to your snack formulation allows you to say that it supports digestive and immune health.
