Weight Management 2010

Weight Management 2010

As the global problem of obesity becomes more pronounced, science is helping build credibility for a number of ingredients, and leading companies are forming high-profile food partnerships to get them to consumers.

Food-industry experts predict weight management will be the most significant trend in food in coming years. This is why, from an ingredient standpoint, so many major suppliers are beefing up their portfolio of weight-management offerings. It's one of the main reasons why functional foods are the fastest-growing sector of the food industry, and why the weight-management market is valued at more than $7 billion globally.

While some brands, such as SlimFast, Weight Watchers, and Jenny Craig have mushroomed on the back of consumer needs, weight management supplements have been blighted by dubious internet offers. How does the market respond to increasing consumer cynicism, how does it grow the science, and what are the next big developments for the segment?
