The Future of Specialised Nutrition: 2020

Key points included

  • IMF ingredients emphasise gut-brain health
  • Transparency is growing in specialised nutrition
  • Plant-based, sustainable sport nutrition increases

The big stories

Infant milk formula (IMF) patent and launch activity continues to show strong interest in gut-brain connection via prebiotics and probiotics. Traceability, especially via blockchain, is appearing across specialised nutrition, whilst plant-based and sustainability in sports nutrition continues to grow strongly.


In the next two years

Plastic-free forms part of a new focus for Foods for Special Medical Purposes (FSMPs) as NGOs put pressure on healthcare to cut waste. Genomic innovations in IMF will allow for a more personalised nutrition journey. Sports nutrition differentiates from active lifestyle via truly personalised solutions for athlete-like consumers.


In five years and beyond

FSMP brands usher in their vision for reducing greehouse gas emissions alongside more sustainable healthcare systems. Concerns surrounding environmental pollution drive innovation of 'clean' protein sources and foods to combat inflammation. Smart homes will allow medical intervention to become more preventative and less invasive.

Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by Rick Miller, a leading analyst in the Food & Drink sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

Almost 70% of the global share of patent inventions focusing on infant formula appear to be centred around either directly mitigating gut-related problems or supporting the gut-brain axis. Rick Miller
