Healthy, Plant-Based Diets Are Becoming Mainstream

Healthy Snacks in New York City

Enjoying healthy, plant-based products is becoming more mainstream and less niche in New York City. A recent survey by YouGov, a global public opinion and data company, asked 1,200+ participants about their perceptions of plant-based products. The results found that improved health and wellness is an important concern for many consumers. 34 percent of those surveyed considered adding plant-based foods such as those made with almond milk to their diet as a way to achieve health-related goals.

Why are plant-based foods important? Because they offer a wide variety of health benefits. New York City residents who eat plant-based diets tend to have the following:

  • diets with more fiber and nutrients, but less saturated fat and overall calories
  • lower body weight/BMI, cholesterol, blood sugar, and less abdominal fat (all are risk factors for obesity, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes)
  • higher levels of compounds with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity, which protects against cell damage and chronic diseases.
  • higher levels of lignans and isoflavones in their blood serum, which is believed to protect against cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Some important, but sometimes scary, numbers about plant-based diets show how eating or not eating them can impact health. Individuals who adopted an overall plant-based diet the most had an 8 percent lower chance of dying. Those who chose a healthy plant-based diet had a 10 percent lower risk of death from heart disease. But, and it’s an unsettling one, individuals who consumed the least healthy diet had an 11 percent higher chance of death.

Which plant-based foods are New York City individuals looking for? According to the YouGov study, flavor is a key factor for 80 percent of participants when they think about trying something new. 51 percent shared that they were interested in trying a product made from almond milk. With so many paths to choose from to improve one’s health, choosing a plant-based diet has definitely moved to the front of the line. 

In general, a plant-based diet includes whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, and fruits and vegetables. Remembering to bring healthy snacks to eat throughout the day can be challenging. The following are a few plant-based snack ideas than can help New York City individuals stop hunger during the day. All can be brought from home, but many can also be found in healthy break room vending machines.

  • roasted chickpeas
  • nuts
  • smoothies with a plant-based milk such as almond milk
  • bars made with fruit and other plant-based ingredients
  • veggies chips
  • popcorn
  • lentil/veggie chips
  • edamame
  • fresh fruit and veggies

5 Popular Beverages in New York City

Healthy Vending Machine Beverages in New York City

New York City residents and employees are on the hunt for new beverages that meet a variety of wellness-related needs. To stay current and keep up with growing demand, beverage manufacturers are continually offering consumers new and exciting options to explore. 

Functional beverages, as a group, are a segment within the rapidly growing nonalcoholic beverage market, which is expected to grow to $1.6 trillion in sales by 2025. The fastest growing category in the nonalcoholic beverage market, functional beverages, includes ready-to-drink (RTD) coffees and teas, and relaxation, hydration or energy drinks.

Christina Wood, Sales and Marketing Director at OptiBiotix Health Plc, recently spoke about the expected demand. “Whether vitamin or ‘enhanced’ water to fend off illness, energy drinks to combat fatigue or sports drinks to aid exercise, they [functional beverages] provide the multipurpose value expected by today’s informed [consumers].”

And those consumers also expect to be able to easily purchase their preferred choice at any time of the day. Whether at work or at school, it’s easy to make sure that New York City employees and students can access different functional beverages in their work break room or school lunchroom healthy vending machine. 

RTD Cold Teas

Enjoy a variety of healthy and organic teas made with Fair Trade ingredients. There is an option for everyone from unsweetened to sweetened teas made with organic sweeteners and tea with or without fruit flavors.

Healthy Vending Machine Beverages in New York City

Enhanced Fruit Drinks

The term ‘juice’ takes on a new meaning when it comes to enhanced fruit drinks. Today, these beverages are made from unique ingredients like the coffee fruit and have no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.

Fruit Infused Flat or Carbonated Bottled Water

Bottled flat or carbonated water with fruit infused flavors offer the benefits of plain bottled water without any diet sweeteners or sugars. They are zero calorie, zero preservative, vegan, gluten-free and kosher.

Sparkling or Flat Mineral Water

Mineral water offers additional health benefits when compared to traditional bottled water. As mineral water’s name suggests, there are extra minerals such as calcium and magnesium in the water that New York City individuals need. 

Coconut Water

Coconut water is a new, healthy choice for staying hydrated. It’s naturally gluten-free, lactose-free, and dairy-free beverage with potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, and phosphorus that hydrates.

Not sure which functional beverages your New York City employees or students might enjoy? Try offering a beverage taste testing event. If everyone knows a bit more about what is available and how it tastes, they are likely to be more comfortable purchasing it. 

And don’t forget to pair your beverage vending machine with a healthy snack vending machine. Make it easier to grab a bite to eat or drink without having to go off-site. Hydrated and satiated employees and students are likely to be more productive and creative. For more information and a free, no obligation quote, please contact Healthy Vending at 917.572.3671.

7 Healthy Food and Nutrition Trends in New york city

healthy break room choices new york city

The number of healthy snack and beverage options available in New York City break room vending machines continues to grow, and that’s a good thing. KIND Healthy Snacks (KIND) recently released its first annual report reviewing the top food and nutrition trends for 2019. Let’s take a look.

  1. Seed Butters

Consumers saw an increase in the number of alternative nut butters such as almond butter, cashew butter and walnut butter in 2018. This year, a new choice, seed butters, will hit the shelves, if they haven’t already. Seed butters such as sunflower, pumpkin and watermelon seed butters have a good fat profile, like alternative nut butters, but may be a viable choice for those individuals with nut allergies.

2. Ugly Produce

Perfect looking produce will need to make some more room on the shelf for ugly produce in 2019. What is ugly produce? It’s the almost six billion pounds of fruit and vegetables that are not harvested or are harvested but not sold to stores each year because they don’t look perfect. The ugly food movement – or stopping ugly produce from ending up in a landfill – continues to expand and reduce the amount of produce that ends up in a landfill as new retail programs become available in New York City.

3. African-inspired Flavors

While African spices and super foods like harissa, berbere, dukkah, ras el hanout and tiger nuts have been present in the American culinary scene for many years, they can now be found in more conventional formats such as condiments, grain snacks and protein rubs. 

4. Digestive Health

As science has developed a better understanding of the human body, the importance of maintaining good digestive health has grown. Gut health, as it’s also known, plays a critical role in one’s overall health and wellness. In 2019, New York City consumers are likely to find an increase in fiber, prebiotics and probiotics in the snacks and beverages they enjoy.

5. Added Sugar Versus Naturally-Occurring Sugar

Understanding the difference between sugar added during the manufacturing process and naturally-occurring sugar is important. While sugar is still sugar, vitamins and minerals accompany naturally-occurring sugar such as those in an apple. Added sugar is just that – sugar. A recent statement by the FDA explains why added sugar can have a negative impact on a New York City individual’s health. “It is difficult to meet nutrient needs while staying within calorie requirements if you consume more than 10 percent of your total daily calories from added sugars.”

6. Protein Alternatives

The days of having limited non-dairy or non-meat protein sources available is gone. Today’s consumer can choose from plant or insect-based proteins as well as lentils and soy. Snack bars, chips, meat-free burgers or sausages and dairy-free yogurts and cheeses are likely to use nuts, extruded seeds, beans, water lentils or algae as their primary protein source.

7. Transparency

During the past year, accountability and transparency had a big impact on how companies design snack and food packaging. In everyday terms that means that companies were more upfront and open about the information on nutrition labels, ingredient lists, and marketing claims. 2019 will see companies applying those same principles of accountability and transparency to their hiring practices and company culture.

With so many new choices coming in 2019, there should be something for everyone. If you haven’t already experienced one of these trends, keep looking. You’ll likely find one in a healthy vending machine near you.

New York City, Celebrate National Vending Day Every Day

Vending Options in New York City

March 7, 2019 was NAMA’s inaugural celebration of National Vending Day, a special day set aside to recognize those who make, sell and enjoy vending machines and the products they offer. Whether we realize it or not, the vending industry has played a role in our lives at one point or another, from the vending machines in a break room to the highway rest stop and everywhere in between. In fact, the impact of the Convenience Services industry, which the vending industry is part of, is larger than most of us realize and has had an economic impact of close to $25 billion. Now, that is something worth celebrating. 

Instead of waiting until March 7, 2020 for the next celebration, celebrate vending machines and your New York City employees every day. Consumers know what they want to eat or drink, and they know when they want it. Help them understand that their break room snack and beverage vending machines are a great on-site resource.

Below are a few suggestions that can spark employee excitement and share information about the delicious products that are available.

Taste-testing Event

It’s no surprise that humans are known for avoiding change, and that includes trying a new healthy snack or beverage. New flavors or textures can be daunting especially when it comes to spending money. Encourage your New York City employees to enjoy new flavors and textures by offering a taste-testing event. Whether it’s once a month or once a quarter, it’s a great opportunity for your employees to experience something new, and you can learn which products are more likely to sell.

Trivia Competition

A little friendly competition is fun, and it can increase camaraderie and morale. Consider hosting a special event like a vending trivia competition with vending-related prizes. There are a lot of interesting facts about vending machines out there. Here are a couple questions to get you started.

  • When did the first reference to a vending machine occur? (answer: 215 BC by Hero of Alexandria, an engineer and mathematician in first-century Roman Egypt. He created a machine that accepted a coin and dispensed holy water.)
  • When did the U.S. Post Office start using stamp vending machines? (answer: 1905)

On-site Events

Host an on-site event celebrating your employees. As part of the celebration include product discounts or snack and beverage giveaways and programs where employees can earn currency for products available in the break room. Everyone likes to get something for free or at a discounted price, even in the break room.

The Break Room

Spruce up your New York City break room. Bright, cheery and welcoming spaces are more likely to attract employees than the bleak, gray break rooms of yesterday. If possible, include plants, brightly painted walls and several separate seating areas that encourage spontaneous conversation, collaboration or a moment of relaxation.

Lastly, consider revamping your current refreshment services or adding new ones to your office break room or school lunchroom. Healthy Vending can help you create a customized menu with the right combination of products for your New York City employees or students. For more information, call us at 917.572.3671.

What Type of Value Does Your New York City Break Room Offer?

Break Room options in New York CityTo be a sought after perk, a break room has to offer what current and potential employees are looking for, and today, that means understanding what New York City Millennials want. As of 2017, research by the Pew Research Center found that Millennials became the largest group of Americans in the U.S. labor force at 35 percent. Generation Xers got bumped to second place with 33 percent of the workforce.  

While the number of years between Millennials and Gen Xers may not be very far apart, many Millennials (those born between 1981 and 1996) came of age during the recession. For a variety of different reasons, the recession had a strong impact on Millennials and triggered a need to find value in what they purchase. Words that describe a product or brand and convey value to Millennials include “well-priced given the quality,” “reliable,” “high quality,” “trustworthy,” and “loyal to customers.” Next in line are words that indicate social responsibility like “fair-minded,” “ethical,” “moral,” and “transparent.”

Whether the product in question is a piece of clothing, a smartphone, or a snack or beverage purchased from a vending machine, value matters. So, how does this generational shift impact your New York City break room? Unfortunately, there is no single answer for all break rooms. To figure out what matters in your break room, consider the following questions.

Break Room options in New York City

Who was your current break room designed for, and what did they value? What do your current employees value? Does that match what Millennials value?

Was it Baby Boomers or Gen Xers? What was or is important to them? Do they still value the same types of snacks and beverages or break room environment? Depending on the age of your organization, your current employees might be those who the space was designed for. But if that’s not the case, what do your current employees value? Are they looking for healthy snacks and beverages that have a functional purpose? Does that snack need to be organic or be made with as few ingredients as possible?

The next step in this process is to see compare those answers to what New York City Millennials are looking for in the break room. Based on the results of the Pew Research Center study, most Millennials are looking for a welcoming, comfortable space that offers snacks and beverages which are well-priced and made with high-quality ingredients by companies that are trustworthy, transparent, and care about their customers. And that sounds like something everyone would enjoy.

Healthy Vending would love to help your New York City organization take the first step toward a high-value break room with delicious and healthy beverages and snacks. You might also consider adding a bit more value by offering the same vending machine options at a reduced cost or for free. For more information, contact us at 917.572.3671. We look forward to helping you increase the value of an important employee perk.

Emerging Snack and Beverage Trends in New York City

Healthy Snacks and Beverages in New York City

Changing snack and beverage trends in New York City are impacting everyone from small, local companies to the largest snack food distributor. To be successful in the long run, both big and small companies need to understand what consumers are looking for.

Meals

Rather than eating three meals per day, more consumers are looking for ways to enjoy six to eight smaller meals or snacks each day. While the nutritional needs of New York City employees and students have not changed, how they get those nutrients has. This means that each “mini-meal” consumed while at work or at school needs to be nutritionally solid.

Healthy snack and beverage options need to provide the right type of nutrition to meet those nutritional needs, but in smaller quantities. One way to do that is to offer snacks and beverages with the right balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fat that will get them to their next consumption occasion.

Plant-based Snacks

While New York City consumers are gravitating toward snacks with high protein and fibrous plant ingredients, many other consumers are not. Historically, “healthy” plant-based snacks lacked flavor and had unusual textures. Dr. Christine Cioffe, senior vice president of PepsiCo Sustainability and Global Snacks R&D explained it best when she said, “People might change their behavior for something with a functional benefit, but overtime will fall off if it’s not flavorful.” Today, there are many delicious plant-based snacks available.

Determining which plant-based snack and beverage products to offer in the office break room or school lunchroom might sound overwhelming, but here are two approaches depending on the situation.

  • Survey employees or students about which plant-based products they already enjoy outside of work or school.
  • For new products and especially when people are suspicious about the taste, encourage employees or students to try new products by creating a trial run period for products at no cost. Then survey everyone to learn which snacks are the most popular.

Healthy Snacks and Beverages in New York City

Organic, Non-GMO, and Socially Good Practices

Consumers want transparency about a number of things from the origins of their prepackaged snacks to how companies are accountable for their environmental footprints and the health of their consumers.

Helping New York City employees and students understand both the big picture and the little picture is important. For the little picture, provide information about what each term means, why it is relevant, and where to look for information on each product. Explaining why companies need to invest in socially good business practices and how it benefits the consumer is a great place to start understanding the big picture.

How is your business or school helping New York City employees or students meet their snacking goals? Consider removing the extra noise and offer only healthy snacks and beverages in your break room or lunchroom vending machine. We’ve done the hard work and made sure that all-natural and organic snacks and beverages are available. In addition, all of our options meet or exceed the minimum nutritional standards established by the USDA School Food Service Program.

New York City, Watch Out for New Terminology on Snacks and Beverages

Healthy Snacks and Beverages in New York City

When are healthy vending machine snacks and beverages still healthy snacks and beverages? When the term genetically modified organisms on the packaging has been changed to bioengineered.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is proposing a terminology change from ‘genetically modified organisms’ (GMO) to ‘bioengineered’ (BE) for certain foods. The proposed new rule aims to establish a national standard, the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard (NBFDS), to disclose information about the BE status of snacks and beverages for consumers, and how those foods must be labeled.

Bioengineering, as defined by the proposed act, is a food “(A) that contains genetic material that has been modified through in vitro recombinant deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) techniques; and (B) for which the modification could not otherwise be obtained through conventional breeding or found in nature.”

What does that mean in plain English? The current term, GMO, will be replaced with BE, and products that meet a predefined set of criteria must follow the newly established rules to comply with the proposed act. Unfortunately, this change will place more of the burden on the consumer to understand the different components of the proposed rule, and how each one impacts labeling.

Unlike the USDA organic label, the label for the NBFDS won’t be a single icon that is easily recognized. Instead, companies have the option of using a text declaration on packaging, such as “bioengineered food” or “bioengineered food ingredient,” or in a sentence such as “contains/may contain a bioengineered food ingredient.” Additionally, companies have a third option of using a digital link or QR code disclosure rather than a label, text or sentence.

Healthy Snacks and Beverages in New York City

The following are a few important points to know about the new labeling requirements when choosing snacks or beverages from the office break room vending machines.

  • The most predominant ingredient in a food, snack, or beverage would independently be subject to established (Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA)) labeling requirements. This includes raw produce, seafood, dietary supplements, and most prepared foods such as breads, cereals, non-meat canned and frozen foods, snacks, desserts, and drinks.
  • If a meat, poultry, or an egg ingredient is the third-most predominant ingredient, or lower, the food would be subject to the new BE labeling regulations.

Three important exceptions to the new BE labeling regulations are (1) when the first ingredient is meat, poultry, or eggs followed by any other ingredient even if that ingredient is one that has been genetically modified; (2) when the most predominant ingredient in a food is broth, stock, water, or a similar solution, and the second-most predominant ingredient in the food is meat, poultry, or eggs; and (3) if the food item in question is from an animal that consumed feed produced from or contained a BE ingredient.   

Rather than expecting New York City employees to keep track of every snack or beverage that falls under the new labeling requirements, remove the guesswork and offer only healthy snacks and beverages in their break room vending machines. And don’t forget about New York City students when considering which type of vending machines to add to the school lunchroom. Not only are healthy snacks and beverages better for their growing bodies, but they are also better for their long-term health.

For more information about adding healthy vending machines to your office break room or school lunchroom, call Healthy Vending at 917.572.3671. We look forward to hearing from you.

Consider Natural Sugar Alternatives in Your New York City Snacks and Beverages

Healthy Snacks and Beverages in New York City

Being aware of the type and amount of sugar in snacks and beverages is important. The number of New York City residents coping with health related problems connected to sugar has increased over the years. Katherine Allmandinger, manager of strategic insights at Nielsen Health & Wellness, shared that “one in five households has a diabetic member who is either pre-type I or II.” And diabetes and obesity are just two of the many issues.

Since many New York City consumers are leary of marketing claims regarding sugar, reading the nutrition and ingredient labels on the snacks and beverages they plan to purchase is becoming standard practice. The challenge for many consumers is knowing which sugar alternative to choose. Artificial sweeteners, while low in calories, are made from ingredients that are known to be harmful. A healthier alternative are natural sweeteners such as monk fruit, honey, and agave.

Monk Fruit

Monk fruit is a small sub-tropical melon from Asia that is 200 times sweeter than sugar. The easiest way to enjoy the sweetness of monk fruit is to use the extract or sweetener. Unlike other fruit, the monk fruit gets its sweetness from naturally occuring antioxidants instead of naturally occuring sugars. This difference is why monk fruit does not affect blood sugar. In addition to not impacting blood sugar levels, monk fruit has anti-inflammatory properties, combats infection, and fights fatigue.

Healthy Snacks and Beverages in New York City

Honey

Honey is a sugary sweet liquid produced by honeybees. A natural sweetener, honey can be used as a substitute for sugar in snacks and beverages. But be careful, honey is sweeter than sugar so you’ll need less of it to get the same sweetness. As with monk fruit, honey has multiple health benefits. Honey boosts energy; contains a variety of vitamins and minerals including vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, and calcium; has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and antioxidant properties; and has trace amounts of more than 15 amino acids.

Agave

Agave is a succulent plant native to the southern United States that is transformed into dark and light agave nectars or syrups. The lighter nectar has a mild flavor while the darker nectar has a stronger flavor that has been said to be close to the flavor of  maple syrup. Just like monk fruit, agave nectar is low on the glycemic index and doesn’t cause a sugar rush and unhealthy blood sugar spike. Antibacterial properties, an improved immune system, and increased bone mineral density are just a few of the other health benefits of agave nectar.

Which sweetener would your New York City employees like to see in their healthy snacks and beverages? A great way to provide a variety of healthy options and give your employees’ finances a boost is to include reduced or zero cost healthy vending machines in your office break room. Healthy Vending can help you customize the perfect selection of snacks and beverages to meet your employees’ sweet and salty needs. Call us at 917.572.3671 for more information.

Healthy Vending Machine Alternatives in New York City

Healthy Vending Machine Options in New York City

Vending machines are here to stay. As of 2018, there are 1.3 million snack vending machines in the United States that offer primarily high-calorie snacks. This is a problem for the almost 40 percent of adults and 18 percent of children who are considered obese. Obesity, a serious medical condition, is known to cause heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high triglycerides and cholesterol, metabolic syndrome, stroke, and multiple types of cancer.

One way researchers are trying to convince New York City consumers to eat healthier is to include a 25-second time delay on vending machines that encourages the consumer to make a healthier choice before the vending machine releases the traditional snack from the vending machine. Brad Appelhans, PhD, a clinical psychologist at the Rush University Prevention Center and lead investigator of the study relayed that the “delay yielded a 2 percent to 5 percent increase in the proportion of total purchases from healthy snacks.” The success of this approach stems from the fact that humans prefer immediate gratification, and immediate gratification influences choices and behavior.   

But this isn’t the only way to encourage New York City consumers to make healthy choices. Rather than creating an environment where individuals need to be psychologically encouraged to make healthy decisions, Healthy Vending provides only all-natural and organic beverage and snack alternatives that are great tasting and enjoyable.

Healthy Vending Machine Options in New York City

With vending machine technology that allows consumers to read the nutritional facts about a specific healthy snack or beverage before making a selection, New York City consumers can feel certain that they have made a good choice. Their wallets will also be happy as the majority of our healthy snacks and beverages are equal in price to unhealthy traditional options. It’s a double bonus—a happy waistline and a happy wallet.

Don’t forget to include students. They also need healthy vending machine snack and beverage choices while at school. Rather than hoping that they will make a healthy beverage choice, offer great-tasting beverages that don’t have large amounts of sugar or artificial sweeteners to go with a healthy snack. Together, Healthy Vending and your New York City school district will customize a list of healthy options to ensure that all items sold meet or exceed the minimum nutritional standards established by the USDA School Food Service Program.

Help your New York City employees or students make healthy vending machine choices. Be upfront with them about your break room goals and the importance of their health. To learn more about combining everything and creating a healthy office break room or school lunchroom, contact Healthy Vending at 917.572.3671. We look forward to helping you customize the perfect solution.

New York City, Are You Ready for the Next Generation of Sparkling Bottled Water?

Bottled Water in New York CityNestlé Waters North America certainly hopes so as they get ready to debut a new and updated line of sparkling bottled water from their regional spring water brands: Poland Spring®, Deer Park®, Zephyrhills®, Ozarka®, Ice Mountain® and Arrowhead® in office breakrooms around the country. Not only will there be new flavors, but there will also be a new bottle design and packaging and the introduction of a new versatile size—the 12 oz. can.  

Antonio Sciuto, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Nestlé Waters North America recently explained that “the sparkling water category is now mature enough for us to make a significant investment in developing this extensive line of mainstream sparkling offerings from our regional spring water brands, each of which is the top-selling still spring water brand in its market.” Just as with Nestlé Waters North America’s other products found in the office vending machine, the new sparkling bottled water will begin by sourcing real, natural spring water. Natural fruit flavors and added carbonation will round out the ingredient list to create a refreshing and delicious beverage.

Deciding which flavor of sparkling bottled water to choose may be the most challenging decision your New York City employees have to make. Ten new flavors including Lively Lemon, Lemon Lime, Zesty Lime, Orange, Triple Berry, Summer Strawberry, Raspberry Lime, Black Cherry, Pomegranate Lemonade, and Simply Bubbles will be available to choose from. And as always, each beverage will be calorie-free, sugar-free, and free of artificial colors.   

Bottled Water in New York City

Newly designed packaging will create an improved tactile and vibrant visual experience. In addition to offering the sparkling bottled water in 12 oz. cans—the preferred container for some New York City consumers—a new bottle design will be available. The new bottle will resemble vintage glass, be more comfortable to hold, and highlight the movement of sparkling bubbles. Each PET bottle will include an eye-catching label with vibrant and colorful fruit graphics, as well as a colored cap that will help consumers recognize the brand faster.

Don’t forget to offer healthy snacks along with that bottle of cool, naturally fruit-flavored sparkling water. It’s important to keep your New York City employees satiated as well as hydrated. To learn more about adding sparkling bottled water to your office break room beverage lineup, call Healthy Vending at 917.572.3671. We would love to help update your current vending machine offerings.
