London, United Kingdom, 2008/05/29 - ReportBuyer.com, added a new report showing that despite lower content levels, sales for all “sodium content” foods and drinks will continue to grow in the U.S.
Report Buyer, the online destination for business intelligence for major industry sectors, has now added a new report showing that despite lower content levels, sales for all “sodium content” foods and drinks will continue to grow in the U.S. It is estimated that traditional supermarkets, with at least $2 million in annual sales, accounted for 75% of all sodium content claim foods and drinks in 2007.
“Market Trend: Low, Reduced or No Sodium or Salt Foods and Beverages in the U.S.” examines the sodium industry as it relates to packaged food products, foodservice menu items and drinks. All of which have been argued as contributing to the record high blood pressure and heart disease cases of Americans.
The authors note that health and wellness are major forces in today’s marketplace and are having a significant impact on consumer purchase behaviour in most food and drink categories, including sodium content products. The authors note that in addition to low- and no-sodium claims, they expect to see salt substitutes and salt-enhancing products making a powerful move to the market to combat the high sodium levels in our foods.
Additionally, it takes an in-depth look at seven product categories that will experience the greatest increase in sodium and salt content claims: drinks, condiments, dairy, grains/snacks, meat/fish/entrées, soups, and canned vegetables.
”Market Trend: Low, Reduced or No Sodium or Salt Foods and Beverages in the U.S.” examines the U.S. retail market for foods and drinks flagging sodium content. It covers any product that has a label where a sodium content claim is made.
