Dietary Solutions To Health Problems Vary Globally By Economic Status, Region

December 31, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Research by Euromonitor finds significant differences in healthy eating trends – and solutions to health problems associated with overweight and obesity – between developed and emerging markets, and between geographic regions in the Western Hemisphere and Asia-Pacific. In developed countries, consumers are more likely to stop eating foods containing certain ingredients, like gluten or lactose. On the other hand, consumers in both developed and emerging markets gravitate toward traditional health or eating behaviors, like eating vegan or vegetarian.  In terms of regional differences, gluten-free is very popular in the U.S. and Canada; lactose-free prevails in Latin America; and avoiding allergen exposure during pregnancy is a key concern in the Asia-Pacific region.
