Mintel's Global New Products Database has recently noticed a number of exciting worldwide new food product introductions. Bakery launches with nettles & licorice Two bakery lines reported in this issue use somewhat novel ingredients. Nettle, an ingredient we sometimes come across in toiletry products, is now found in a new Finnish rye bread from Linkosuon Leipomo.  Also in Finland are reformulated Carneval biscuits from Fazer Keksit.  They now have a touch of licorice flavor.  Licorice is a common confectionery item in Scandinavian markets, but it is unusual for the flavor to be applied in biscuits.
