ALMONDS DELIVER WHAT CONSUMERS WANT IN A SNACK.

For more than 10 years, almonds have been the most used nut in new snack products globallyand demand isn’t letting up any time soon. That’s because almonds help deliver everything consumers and product developers are looking for in a snack.

  • Today, consumers expect more. They seek convenient, portable snacks and expect sustainable food choices.
  • And, consumers demand that these healthy snack options have ingredients they can easily understand. So, when it comes to innovation in an already crowded category, almonds can be your secret ingredient to success.
  • Almonds are the ideal ingredient for snack innovation; they are portable, natural, non-greasy, good nutrition profile² and familiar while also being premium.
  •  The subtle flavor of almonds complements both sweet and savory formulations, and the many forms available mean they are versatile enough for your ingredient needs.

And here, at the Almond Board of California, we’re constantly developing research and resources to help manufacturers succeed.
