Obesity and Overweight in Germany, Leveraging Opportunity for Manufacturers

Germans consider healthy food as a sustainable way to overcome lifestyle concerns, such as obesity, diabetes, and celiac diseases, where specialty ingredients play an important role. Across the country, people have easy access to cheap, high-calorie fast food and ready meals. As a result, the average body mass index (BMI) has shot up across the developed world and beyond. This has led key food manufacturers to incorporate functional food additives, such as low-calorie or reduced sugar sweeteners, in various food applications, such as bakery and other processed foods, especially targeting the on-the-go snacking options, in order to make it a healthier option for the consumers.
