The Nutri-Score, a new compass and commercial asset serving nutritional quality.

In 2023, it is estimated that 60% of commercially available biscuits are rated as Nutri-Score E (Open Food Facts)*. Nevertheless, nutrition remains at the forefront of consumers' concerns, making the iconic 5-color logo an indispensable guide. This underlying trend directly impacts the biscuit market, driving the industry to innovate and offer balanced options that delight consumers' taste buds.

More than just a challenge, this trend is also an opportunity. A high Nutri-Score rating indeed boosts sales, with a 6.3-point increase in shelf turnovers for products rated A and a 4.5-point increase for those rated B, according to a study by Circana and ScanUp

IMCD Food & Nutrition has seized this opportunity to provide tailored nutritional enhancement solutions to bakery professionals. Discover our Nutri-Score A health biscuits: low in fat, with a low glycemic index, and rich in fiber and protein. All while not compromising on deliciousness and enjoyment!

Health centric ingredients


For our Nutri-Score A Health Biscuit concept, IMCD has crafted an intelligent recipe that seamlessly blends nutritional quality with delectable flavors, perfectly aligning with the latest health trends in the baking industry.

Explore our key ingredients, thoughtfully selected for their functional benefits:

  • Fava Bean and Sunflower Proteins 
    Plant-based proteins with neutral taste and color that contribute texture and a protein boost to the final product.
  • Rice and Fava Bean Flours
    Plant-based flours rich in proteins, enhancing nutritional value, with a neutral taste and complementary texturizing effects.
  • Isomaltulose
    A low glycemic index sugar, providing sustained energy throughout the day, while enhancing the biscuit's crispiness.
  • Dietary Fibres
  • Soluble dietary fibers that enhance the nutritional profile by acting as a bulking agent.  
  • Vitamins
    The biscuits are enriched with vitamins designed to withstand baking, improving vitamin and mineral content.
  • Flavouring
    Botanical extracts, fruit powders, and natural flavors infuse the biscuits with unique character and a natural taste.
