This rising awareness compels the food & beverage industry to develop healthy varieties of products using natural nut ingredients, such as almonds, cashews, walnuts, and hazelnuts. The rising disposable income levels also lead to greater purchasing of premium offerings.The positioning of almond ingredients as healthier alternatives to traditional snacks in the market fuels its consumption resulting in growth opportunities for the almond ingredients market.
