Better for you
KMG Snack food seasoning systems have never been more relevant. Demand for pulses and legume based snacks is increasing due to their strong better-for-you credentials. Pulses and legumes are mostly perceived as high in protein and fibre allowing consumers to indulge in a snack which is both healthy and fun. They also link in to the plant-based trend; being vegan and a sustainable choice, particularly for younger consumers. Consumers with high disposable income no longer think that pulses and legumes are boring: instead they are healthy, sustainable, ‘free from’, ‘better for you’ and trendy.
Snack food manufacturers are increasingly looking at innovative base products for their snacks and pulses fit the bill. Another driver in pulse and legume popularity is regulatory moves in both the UK and EU. Raw materials such as chickpeas, split peas and lentil score highly on the Nutri-Score system while still producing snacks that deliver everything that a consumer would want in a crispy snack, including taste and mouthfeel. Whether you are producing fried, extruded or popped chips, you must be asking, who is KMG and what you do for me? KMG is the leading manufacturer of snack food conveying and snack food seasoning systems.
