Report Summary

“The newly updated dietary guidelines and ready-to-proliferate industry standards are anticipated to drive food and drink brands and manufacturers to work on developing credible products. Meanwhile, consumers have also developed clearer “likes” towards ingredients that demonstrate clear and specific functions and “dislikes” if the ingredients’ functions are vague or not backed up with science. Future opportunities include narrowing down vitamins’ specific health benefits, improving plant protein’s protein quality, as well as justifying the efficacy of botanicals’ health functions.”
