According to new data from Mintel’s Global New Products Database (GNPD), the broad range of health-focused, on-package claims for new products in the food and beverage industry serve as key indicators of consumer preferences and priorities.
Among the nearly 20 most popular health-related claims for new products launched in 2011, the top three claims were “Kosher” at 27.4%, “All Natural Product” at 13.1% and “No Additives/Preservatives” at 12.9%. Near the bottom of the list was “No HFCS” at 2% of product introductions, or around 400 out of 20,000 total new products launched.
This white paper explores:
- Health-related food claims among new products launched in 2011, across a wide range of categories, brands and companies
- “No HFCS” new product package claims by major category (e.g., juice drinks, breakfast cereal, dairy, soft drinks)
