Key Market Trends

Lentil Remained The Fastest Growing Segment of The Market

According to Greek researchers, snacks produced through wholegrain lentil flour have been found to meet consumer acceptability with respect to the textural and structure aspects. The study utilized lentil in mixture with cornflour at a ratio of 10-15% (legume/corn). Notably, the researchers mentioned that legumes are being preferred as they are low in sodium and fat and are cholesterol-free – which is likely to be the consumer trend over the forecast period. Eat Real (Lakshmi & Sons Ltd), Enjoy Life Foods, Saffron Road (American Halal Company Inc.), and Raw Garcia are a few active and new companies offering a range of lentil flour derived snack products, such as lentil chips, hummus chips, lentil crackers.
