Just a little reminder of why Healthy Snacking and consumption of Nuts is a key growth category.

The UK’s healthy eating model, the Eatwell Guide, encourages us to consume a more plant-based diet - Health authorities, such as USDA and WHO, specifically advocate nuts as part of a healthy diet.

A number of observational studies report that people who eat more nuts tend to have a lower risk of heart disease, cancer and death from all causes, and evidence from controlled trials further suggests that eating nuts can help to reduce blood cholesterol. PREDIMED, a study in which one arm of subjects followed a Mediterranean diet and ate 30 g of mixed nuts per day, found a significantly lower rate of heart attack, stroke and death from heart disease and interestingly, eating 30 g of walnuts per day has been found to improve the elasticity of blood vessels which may reduce heart disease risk.

Nuts are also a plant based protein source, and can be particularly useful for vegetarians and vegans as they provide some of the nutrients present in meat and fish. There is also some evidence that foods rich in protein and fibre can help us feel fuller – an important aspect in weight management.

So, if you want to chase those sales and offer key growth categories, ensure your offer is fully stocked with over 45 varieties of our NATURE’S TABLE products.
