Healthier formulation

A growing health-consciousness
among consumers worldwide

Rapid urbanization and changing lifestyles are transforming dietary patterns. Nowadays, health and naturality are at the heart of consumers’ concerns and the growth of diet-linked health issues has led to a strong awareness of the consumers regarding their daily food consumption. To answer consumers’ food expectations, food manufacturers invest in developing healthier and nutritionally balanced products. Salt, fat, sugar reduction, and also protein and fibers enrichment are the major challenges the industry has to face.

Salt, Sugar and Fat reduction, a global challenge

The World Health Organization (WHO) has designated salt, sugar and fat as the three targets to reduce in the coming years and has set the following nutritional guidelines:

  • lowering salt consumption by 30% by 2025
  • reducing sugar intake under 10 % of total energy intake
  • reducing fat intake under 30% of total energy intake

For food manufacturers, the biggest challenge is to reduce the amount of these ingredients without compromising on taste. Inspired by key food trends, Biospringer is continuously innovating by offering specific natural flavor ingredients to drive the consumers’ preference and support the food industry tackle these three main challenges.


Thanks to a strong know-how in taste building, our Culinary Centers advise food manufacturers in formulating when using yeast extracts to develop healthier formulation and preserve a tasteful profile.
