New Year’s Day used to be a day when people resolved to exercise regularly, break bad habits and eat better. By the time Valentine’s Day—or Super Bowl Sunday—rolled around, those proclamations became distance memories, especially when it came to eating better. Who could resist devouring a large slice of red velvet cake or diving into a bowl of cheese-covered nachos?
But thanks to the media and proactive food retailers and manufacturers, Americans today are discovering that it’s easier than ever to eat healthier anytime and anywhere. They’re also more educated about the foods they eat and read more labels. Likewise, demanding manufacturers are using more nutritious ingredients in their products. To help bakers and snack producers create healthier products for consumers, ingredient manufacturers are doing the same for their customers.
