Light and healthier, Condiments and sauces

Lighten up

Condiments and sauces are often the first things consumers ditch when they diet or become focused on healthier eating, Packaged Facts said. Offering free-from, light and low-calorie options may help keep consumers from cutting out condiments and sauces.

“Consumers increasingly focused on health might cut out certain sauces and condiments from their diets based on the perception that these add-ons are loaded with unnecessary sugar, salt, and preservatives,” Packaged Facts said. “Having light food options is especially important for older consumers like Baby Boomers, who are likely to have age-related health concerns.”
