Key consumer trends will continue to drive manufacturers towards developing innovative products that contain nuts and seeds, says the Almond Board of California.

Looking at snacks in particular, key trends include high-nutrition and great taste, figures from Innova Market Insight’s new products database show.

“Almonds are recognised as great flavour carriers, as they pair well with so many different ingredients, offering variety and indulgence alongside the high fibre and vitamin benefits they provide,”​ it adds.

Top trends

Lu Ann Williams, director of innovation at Innova, says: “Almonds fit into so many of the top trends, such as natural, simple, better-for-you and clean-label, it’s no surprise they are a ‘go-to ingredient’.”
