20 Dec 2017 --- Comax Flavors has released new primary research on consumers’ behavior, usage and attitudes towards Nutrition & Performance products, which focused on Protein Powder, Ready-To-Drink (RTD) Protein Drinks and Protein Bars. Key findings included a strong focus on “Taste” as the number one driver of nutrition & performance purchases among all generations, and “Plant Protein” as one of the top five “active ingredients” respondents look for in nutrition & performance products.
This is the fourth study of the company’s primary market research program.
“Once reserved for athletes and heavily dominated by whey protein, the protein market across applications including protein powder, ready-to-drink (RTD) and bars is continually evolving. Nutrition & Performance products are now readily available and marketed to people with active lifestyles, and we are seeing activity in plant protein. We wanted to better understand habits and usage among the general population in this market,” states Catherine Armstrong, Vice President of Corporate Communications for Comax Flavors.
