Naturally Healthy Packaged Food in India
Consumers in India have started consuming naturally healthy food products such as olive oil, brown bread, multigrain bread and oat biscuits due to rising health and wellness concerns. This trend was especially noticeable in cities in upmarket bakeries, department stores and hypermarkets/supermarkets. This shows that the rich urban consumers have been moving to healthier varieties of packaged food as this report shows.

Sugar and Sweeteners in the US
More consumers in the US are turning away from the commonly used table sugar (also known as granulated refined white sugar). They are looking for less processed and natural alternatives, such as stevia, molasses, honey and raw sugar.

This report explores the trend.
