Description

“A growing movement that calls for consumers to limit their intake of a number of key food ingredients, such as fat, sugar, sodium, and carbohydrates, thought to be harmful to one’s health, threatens in-store bakery sales as consumers feel pressure to cut back on indulgence. However, in-store bakeries have the opportunity to respond with innovative better-for-you alternatives that cater to consumers’ demand for both health and indulgence.”
