On-the-go consumers are turning to hot breakfast items for health, wellness and lifestyle benefits, leaving other varieties in the cold.
Higher per capita incomes, changing food habits and healthy lifestyle trends are bringing breakfast back all over the globe. According to Persistence Market Research, the hot cereals market is expected to reach $43.2 billion by 2019, a growth rate of 4.1%.
The hot breakfast category includes foods made with oats, wheat, rice or cornmeal. Breakfast cereal market leaders Kellogg’s, General Mills and PepsiCo have a 50% combined market share and offer many hot cereal varieties made with honey.
Kashi GoLean Hearty Honey Cinnamon Hot Cereal has cinnamon, honey and seven different whole grains.
For a new take on warm breakfast, Quaker recommends that warm milk is poured over its Warm & Crunchy Honey Almond granola. A serving has as much whole grains and fiber as a traditional bowl of Quaker oatmeal.
Honey is naturally free of gluten, containing no wheat, barley, rye or oats or their by-products.
In gluten-free recipes, where texture and flavor often suffer, honey offers bakers distinct flavor, color and textural enhancement by retaining moisture.
