Consumers love trying new things and even more, they love almonds. But with all the news on food-related health issues, people are becoming increasingly more aware about what they put in their bodies. In fact, over two-thirds of U.S. consumers (68%) have reported taking more “active steps to eat more healthily” over the previous year.1 So whether you're a research chef, executive chef, or product developer, try adding almonds as the perfect way to create a mouth-watering product or meal that your customer can enjoy without a lot of guilt.
