Clean Label Solutions From Yost Foods
What is “Clean Label”?
Customers often approach us here at Yost Foods with interest in developing a “clean label” solution. But what does clean label really mean? In our experiences we have learned that clean label can mean many different things to different audiences. At a very basic level, clean label refers to food products that are organic and natural with fewer highly processed ingredients. However, it can also include food ingredients that are sustainably and responsibly sourced, using techniques that protect the environment as well as human and animal welfare while ensuring abundance for the future.
Consumer Demand for Clean Label Products Continues to Grow
Today’s consumers are more and more discerning of selecting foods with “better for you” ingredients that represent authenticity and transparency, in essence for foods that they can trust. While perceptions among consumers of what clean label is can vary dramatically, the bottom line is clean label is not just a trend anymore, it is an expectation. People want to eat foods with real or perceived nutritional benefits for themselves and for their families.
