Protein-rich foods for a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle are becoming more and more popular among many people. Anyone with a vegan or vegetarian diet needs to rely more on non-meat and non-dairy sources of protein. In order to achieve a more balanced diet foods with plant-based protein are key.
Many people also consider vegetable proteins to be a healthier option to increase their energy levels than traditional proteins. Peanuts and their derivatives are a great way to add protein to any food product. Therefore, it is not surprising that peanuts-related products with their high nutritional value and low sugar content are one of the most trending private label products of 2022.
Peanuts can be used as a sustainable alternative to other ingredients as they are one of the most sustainable crops due to requiring less water than many other crops and providing important nutrients to the soil. On top of that, peanuts are an amazing high-quality protein source made up by 50% of fatty acids. They are also high in fiber, niacin, B vitamins and minerals. Additionally, according to Innova Market Insights, 70% of consumers experiment with new food concepts and unique combinations. They are looking for new flavours and new sensory experiences from brands. Peanuts can be added as a new flavour to many different products and in a variety of forms.
