Popularity Of Almonds Is One Of Several Trends In The World Of Snacks

February 28, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Global demand for almonds is increasing ten percent annually, in large part because of a growing awareness that almonds (and other nuts) in a variety of forms are a healthy snack. The Almond Board of California says the positive perception of almonds – that they are the "healthiest" nuts – is backed by scientific findings about the nut’s nutritional benefits. Consumers also give them high marks for "crunch appeal" and taste. Stuart Cantor, Ph.D., discusses almonds in an overview of current snack trends, including the fact that indulgent snacks – containing cheese, bacon, spices, and chocolate – seem to be holding their own. He also offers observations on advances in salt and hydrocolloid processing, and the emergence of the terms "air-popped" and "baked" in the snack world.
