Topic: 

Insights to Innovation in Dairy Alternatives: Highlighting Plant-based Protein and Specialty Sweetness Solutions.

Driven by the health & wellness megatrend, consumers are shifting away from high-sugar, high-calorie offerings towards beverages with better-for-you benefits.  The rise of plant-based and alternative dairy offerings provides an optimal format for incorporating added nutrition.  51% of new product launches (dairy alternative drinks, meal replacement drinks and sports protein based RTD beverages) in Canada (2017-2020) claim a high/source of protein, 23% make a sugar claim (source: Innova).  In this presentation we will uncover insights into the types of protein and sugar reduction components trending in this space and will highlight dairy alternative formulation concepts and functional ingredients.

Speaker:
