business news in context, analysis with attitude

Reuters Business Insights has published a new study, entitled "New Profit Opportunities in Health and Nutrition to 2009," suggesting that while low-carb foods have proven to be a highly profitable category, by 2009 the market will be dominated by that low-fat, cholesterol-reducing and diabetic-friendly products.

Also expected to be a hot category in coming years: functional foods and packaged, branded, prepared fruit snacks.

The overall goal as these trends develop seems to be to cater to both the younger population and aging baby boomers, both of which need a healthier, more nutritious cuisine.
