Restaurants & Water: Foodservice industry makes strides towards sustainability except in one key area

One-third of consumers worldwide prefer to buy food from sustainable brands.

That’s according to a recent surveyof 20,000 adults from five countries, including the U.S, which was conducted by Unilever – a transnational consumer goods company. 

After attending Menus of Change(MOC), an annual summit hosted by the Culinary Institute of America and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, I learned how the food service industry is making moves to listen to consumers’ concerns. The good news is that chefs and other food service leaders are working to improve environmental health – but there is still great need for change in one specific area: water sustainability.

Peanut Milk: The Plant-Based Protein You’ve Been Waiting For

It’s no secret that Americans love peanuts (at least not to us).  What you may not realize is that alternative milks and plant-based proteins have changed the way we shop. If you’re already a fan of alternative milks, you know they’re not all the same – especially when it comes to protein content.  More than ever, consumers are demanding products that compare favorably with cow’s milk on that front. 

New to the alternative milk market is Elmhurst’s Cleanest Protein Shake on the Planet™ - Chocolate Peanut - a new ready-to-serve beverage packed with 20 grams of plant-based protein from peanuts. The protein in peanuts promote muscle recovery – making this a great post-workout drink option.

Why This Culinary Dietitian Loves Peanut Milk

As someone who loves efficiency, if I can find a product that works fabulously as a culinary ingredient and a stellar source of nutrition, it’s love at first sight. As the first peanut milk ever to hit the market, Elmhurst’s Milked Peanuts is a powerful plant-based beverage that serves up six grams of protein per cup, with a peanut lover’s dream taste.

Creamy, Crunchy, Sweet and Salty Rule New Peanut Products

Peanuts are a tasty and convenient snack, and new product introductions reflect our love of snacking. Snacks are consistently a top performer for new peanut product introductions and this category shows no signs of slowing down. In the past quarter, new product introductions in the snack category increased 46 percent compared to last year, according to Mintel. These newly launched and recently announced product introductions like peanut milk will also contribute to continued growth in snacks.

What the Latest Food Products say about the Natural Foods Market

The natural foods space evolves and grows, and the peanut butter aisle is a perfect example. A generation ago, variety in this corridor was creamy, crunchy or the jar with alternating stripes of peanut butter and jelly. To find natural or flavored peanut butters back then, you would probably have to go to a small natural grocer or make it yourself at home. Now, there are dozens of varieties available from brands with simply peanuts and salt to exotic flavors like garam masala.

The natural foods space is still innovating and expanding and the newest and brightest players are on display at several trade shows during the year, including Natural Products Expo East, Fancy Food Show, the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo. At these events thousands of brands are showcased and many further missions centered on health, wellness, community building and sustainability. These new products will end up on store shelves heading into the new year.
