Feeding the Gut Microbiome: from pre-, pro-, and postbiotics to resistant starch
While nutrition scientists are still unlocking the secrets of the gut microbiome, consumers increasingly understand that what we feed the army of microbes that line our digestive tracts may be intimately connected to our physical – and mental - health and wellbeing. So how can manufacturers tap into demand for foods that make our microbes happy, from probiotics claimed to reduce LDL cholesterol to the next generation of prebiotic fibers, postbiotics, resistant starch and resistant dextrin.

Plant-Based Protein in Focus: from Pongamia to chickpeas
Plant-based proteins continue to dominate the so-called 'alternative protein' category. We explore the toolbox, from established ingredients such as soy and pea protein, to emerging options from chickpeas, canola, 'upcycled' barley protein, and Pongamia, delving into nutrition, taste, texture and sustainability. We’ll also explore how consumers are thinking about protein quantity and quality, and which applications present the biggest growth opportunities.

The beverage category is a hotbed of innovation, with brands increasingly adding functionality as well as fun to their beverages, from collagen-infused water and elderberry wellness shots to ashwagandha-infused sparkling waters, immune-supporting beverages with vitamins and minerals, and a new wave of products focusing on mood, energy and focus. So what are consumers looking for, and which trends and ingredients really have legs?
