Unlocking the Future of Healthful Beverages With Flavor, Texture and Nutrition
With consumers increasingly concerned about health, the demand for healthful beverages is on the rise. And whether consumers are looking to improve their immunity system, gain a boost of energy, aid their digestive system, improve their heart health or simply quench their thirst, beverages are uniquely positioned to offer enhanced nutrition to the health-minded consumer. But formulating healthier beverages is not without challenges. How does one mask the graininess, improve mouthfeel and add flavor to overcome bitterness and other issues? And what about the trends? Are your beverages positioned to capitalize on the emerging trends in this market?
Please join us for an interactive, educational program focusing on the challenges and opportunities presented by consumers’ ever-growing interest in healthy, natural and fortified beverages.
