A new survey finds surprising results for online food purchases.

An online survey conducted by The Harris Poll found almost 50% of Americans consider a food product  “a good fit for online shopping” if it has a long shelf-life, is non-perishable or if it is difficult to find in stores.

We have realized that for a long time – no surprise.  What is a surprise is that Harris found that 16% of respondents bought fresh fruits and vegetables online in the previous six months, which is the same percent who bought dry packaged goods online. 

What is a Grocerant, and why should RDs care? 
Do you know what a grocerant is? Phil explains what you need to know about the fastest growing sector in food.

A grocerant can be in a supermarket or convenience store and is one of the fastest growing sectors in the food industry. In fact, according to Technomic (more on Technomic later) the growth is double digits and is expected to continue the same growth for the next ten years.

Grocerants can take the form of sit-down restaurants at Hy-Vee, growler bars at Kroger, or the food courts, sushi bars, smokehouse, smoothies bars and pizza places at Mariano’s, to name a few.

Way Better Snacks Tortilla Chips Nacho Cheese is MY PICK OF THE WEEK!
Typically I don't like "nacho cheese" chips, they just taste so artificial - but not these. These sprouted flax, quinoa and chia mixed with stone ground whole corn uses real cheddar cheese and tastes great. A touch of red chili spice tops it off with just the right flavor and not overly spicy. Watch my full review.

Prediabetes, What Your Shoppers Need to Know: SupermarketGuru wants to point out the condition that could lead to type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, if not controlled through diet and lifestyle changes. Prediabetes is when blood glucose (sugar) levels are consistently higher than what is considered normal, but not elevated enough to qualify as type 2 diabetes. Prediabetes can have its own health consequences.
