Following consumer priorities for healthy eating

Today’s consumers have strong aspirations to live healthily. Health has become the new wealth. Society is increasingly embracing a holistic view of health that incorporates both mental and physical well-being. Exclusion diets are now considered normal; supermarkets stock the latest superfoods; yoga, tai chi and other forms of mind/body exercise have gained hugely in popularity in recent years. This new age of health awareness, widely promoted on social media, is the result of changes in society. Consumers want reduced levels of sugar, sodium and saturated fats in the food they buy. They are looking for healthy meal ideas containing natural fats and oils and naturally-occurring sugars. Solina now has a key role to play in responding to these priorities by developing affordable nutritional solutions and communicating their benefits in a language that highlights and respects the importance of health and well-being for consumers.

Solina’s mission to create “better food” takes into account the trend for healthy eating. Using our expertise in three areas – nutritional, taste/visual, and functional – we develop innovative ingredient formulations for clients in the food, food service and butchery industries that provide them with complete, customised solutions whether in the form of ready meals, snacks, sauces, meat products or vegetarian applications.

"Trendy Vegetable" to offer healthier foods

One of Solina’s healthy eating initiatives is the Trendy Vegetable concept, which offers solutions to make vegetables a healthy, complete meal, as attractive and appealing in terms of taste as a meat-based meal. The concept combines taste, nutrition, health and convenience. It is based on six principles, split into “less” and “more”: less sodium, saturated fat and refined sugars; more fruit, vegetables and fibre. It offers a comprehensive range of seasonings and recipes for tasty, nutritious, healthy and convenient main dishes. Tasty, because healthy food can still be delicious, thanks to our world flavours. Nutritious, with complete meals made with vegetables and rice, pasta, grains or pulses. Healthy, with clear nutritional information. And last but not least, convenient, because we know consumers need solutions to suit their busy lives. Trendy Vegetables: who knew healthy food could be so delicious and so easy?
