Those drivers recast these foods in a whole new light and turn a new chapter for South American food, representing a bounty of opportunities for manufacturers, retailers and foodservice/restaurant organizations.
Rockville, MD (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
Packaged Facts, a division of MarketResearch.com, has launched its new “Culinary Trend Tracking Series (CuTTS)” with its first issue, “South American Flavors.” A bi-monthly subscription series, CuTTS is available for purchase at PackagedFacts.com.
Each report in the series, based on meaningful themes using today’s food trends as a backdrop, analyzes the opportunities for industry players using retailer market data, product highlights, foodservice applications and recommendations.
“Our customers rely on us for vetted insights that reflect a data-driven approach to market research and our own proprietary consumer trend interpretations,” adds Don Montuori, vice president of Publishing, MarketResearch.com. “Food industry customers will benefit from this new information platform.”
WILL PURPLE CORN DRINKS BE THE NEXT NUTRITIONAL POWERHOUSE BEVERAGES AND COCKTAIL BAR STAPLES?
Purple corn, with its powerful wellness properties and cancer-inhibiting flavonoid, may well be the next core ingredient of power nutritional drinks of tomorrow. Syrups based on its application may soon be ubiquitous in cocktail bar, lounges and restaurant bars. Their presence is already growing within eclectic, ethnic and modern-esque eateries and lounges, and their flavor profile is well-paired with the Peruvian brandy pisco and other authentic South American spirits.
“Health & wellness and flavor tourism are two key consumer drivers we’re currently tracking,” says David Sprinkle, publisher of the new series. “Those drivers recast these foods in a whole new light and turn a new chapter for South American food, representing a bounty of opportunities for manufacturers, retailers and foodservice/restaurant organizations.”
Executives, strategists, chefs, and food research professionals in R&D/product development, market and consumer insights, brand management, and trade and consumer marketing will be inspired by the new series and will utilize it to raise the prospects of their menu development and food manufacturing innovation.
SOUTH AMERICAN FLAVORS OPPORTUNITY-SCAPE
“South American Flavors” provides insights, market data, proprietary consumer survey analysis and trend applications for the food retailing and foodservice channels. South American foods covered include:
- Aji peppers and rocoto see expanded applications in sauces and as ingredients for snacks with a global flair
- Purple corn and purple potato will stake more claim as authentic and healing foods, including for those seeking non-GMO ingredients
- In the wake of quinoa, amaranth and pichuberry will play on texture and flavor attributes, as well as leverage health & wellness, to increase penetration in the specialty and natural market
- Pisco and caipirinha will draw on perennial interest in international spirits and beverages to foster new mixology and flavoring applications
- South American stews, including Brazil’s feijoada and pan-Latin chupe de camarones, have gotten their sea legs on menus
“CuTTS continues our tradition of providing strategic culinary studies that combine hard data and consumer insights with an informed focus on market opportunities,” notes Sprinkle. “With Peruvian food widely recognized as a hot cuisine, and with health & wellness and flavor tourism both acting as powerful drivers of consumer food trends, South American flavors are ready to claim a place at the North American table.”
