Reduced-fat remains high on the agenda for manufacturers, but what options are out there and what do consumers really want?

BakeryandSnacks.com compiled a special edition on the topic, speaking to experts in formulation and consumer behavior as well as several ingredients majors to find out what was happening in the market and what was on the horizon.
