Nutritional improvement driven by consumer’s needs in fine bakery

Food and drink have a key role within health and wellness strategies. Consumers continue to watch out for ‘nasties’ and scrutinize what goes into their mouths; ‘natural’ is an ever more important shortcut for ‘good for me’. Healthy living is as much about stripping away the artificial and unnecessary as it is about adding more ‘good stuff’. Pure and natural products are the order of the day. More and more often people are increasingly embracing the balance between their nutritional and lifestyle choices, rediscovering simple, clean, wholesome components and processes that give energy to the body and serenity to the mind.
