Savory Snack Companies Overcome Technical Challenges To Create Healthier Products

May 20, 2010: 05:48 AM EST
With consumers clamoring for savory snacks that are a little exotic, tasty and healthier, food companies have revved up their innovation engines to deliver products that meet all three criteria. But adding functional ingredients to create healthier extensions of product lines, or to create new products, while maintaining taste and texture is no easy task. Several companies, however, seem up to the challenge. The Sensible Portions chips and cracker line from World Gourmet Products, for example, includes "better-for-you" options made with whole grains, soy protein, vitamins, iron and fiber, but no trans fats. Bean Brand Foods’s omega-3-rich Beanito chips are made from pinto or black beans mixed with whole grain rice and flax seeds. And Corazonas Foods is offering "heart-healthy snacks" like its lower-fat potato chip made with plant sterols.
