The majority of consumers (>75%) are confused about diet and health, which is pushing them to look for information and make up their own minds on what's healthy or not; this fragmentation of beliefs about diet and health creates a proliferation of niches in the marketplace.

Digestive health is a big motivator for changing dietary behaviours, with around a quarter of consumers avoiding gluten or lactose (even though less than 13% claim to actually be intolerant). Over 50% of consumers claim to be trying to eat fewer carbs, with cakes, cookies, bread, sugar and soft drinks the top targets for reduction. Attitudes towards fat are changing, with over 78% of consumers agreeing that not all fats are unhealthy, and almost 10% thinking fats are not bad at all. A significant number of consumers in all regions are trying to eat more healthy fats.

Over 50% of consumers claim to have meatless meals 1-3 times a week - this trend is stronger among younger consumers. Health concerns are the biggest motivator for 40% of consumers who are trying to reduce their alcohol consumption - younger consumers are more concerned about their alcohol intake than older consumers.
