Demand for healthy snacks

Consumers are increasingly becoming more aware of the food ingredients and look for better-for-you ingredients that are of high-quality. Apart from this, there has been a notable change in the food preference of consumers, as most of them are trading their routine meals for snacks. So, this increases the demand for healthy snack foods. Therefore, the increasing consumer interest in healthy ingredients in snacks is the key factor driving the demand for crackers.

Manjunath Jagannath, a lead food research analyst at Technavio, says, “High-protein, legumes, vegetables, whole grains, and others are becoming popular as the key elements in crackers. Crackers are marketed as biscuits made from healthy ingredients. Most of the consumers consider crackers as healthy snacks, as it has lesser calories than others. Apart from traditional saltine crackers, many vendors have launched various healthful crackers to meet the demands of health-conscious consumers.”

Consumers are looking for a wide range of options from traditional to health-focused. Thus, the changing taste preferences in crackers is growing as consumers wish to try and constantly look for different flavors and products.

“Crackers are available in the market in many flavors and varieties, such as butter crackers, matzoh crackers, cheese crackers, breadsticks, water crackers, goldfish crackers, graham crackers, and others. Each of these varieties of crackers has different flavor, taste, and uses. To meet the demand for crackers, a wide range of options and varieties are available in the market,” adds Manjunath.
