LOS ANGELES, Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Informa Exhibitions has named Sugar 2.0 + Probiotics by Foods 2.0, LLC. as one of its finalists for the 2016 SupplySide CPG Editor's Choice Awards.
Five 2015 consumer packaged goods (CPG) products were selected by the SupplySide editorial team for achievements in innovation and market impact in 22 different categories. Sugar 2.0 + Probiotics was named to the short list in the Probiotics Category.
Probiotics and clean label foods are two trends that are becoming increasingly more important to health-conscious consumers. Both Foods 2.0, LLC and SupplySide West 2016 are taking great interest in these trends.
Probiotics are microorganisms that are ingested with certain foods and strengthen the immune system as well as improve gut health. There is some research that indicate probiotics also positively influence certain central nervous system disorders like depression and anxiety.
'Clean label foods' is the term for foods that not only clearly list all their ingredients on their labels but also take care to use only natural ingredients. According to an article in Food Business News, three quarters of Americans read the labels on the foods they buy and would prefer to be accurately informed about the ingredients of packaged foods.
SupplySide West 2016 will provide workshops, summits and presentations on these and many other topics. Additionally, there will be the Editor's Choice Awards in 22 categories, including allergen-free bars, digestive health, energy boosters, weight management, women's health and, of course, probiotics.
Winners will be determined based on market innovation, consumer need, scientific substantiation and the 'cool' factor, and one winner in each category will be announced October 6 and 7 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"It's an honor to be recognized as one of the top products of 2016 and to be recognized for our innovative efforts to improve gut and immune health," said Trong Nguyen, CEO and Founder of Foods 2.0. "Using natural and sustainable ingredients in Sugar 2.0 means that our customers are receiving the best cutting-edge ingredients that help support their health and wellness."
"In the past few years we've had tremendous success highlighting the products that are coming to market, driven by the innovative ingredients highlighted at SupplySide," said Heather Granato, vice president, content, in Informa's Health & Nutrition Network. "In considering hundreds of products, our team narrowed the field based on the unique positioning and ability to serve consumers with truly cutting-edge products."
