Pretzels are a kind of bread usually made from rye flour or wheat and various other ingredients, including sugar, yeast, water, salt, and butter. They are available in many shapes and sizes, like in a twisted knot. Soft pretzels are large and possess a chewy texture meanwhile hard pretzels are small and crunchy. They are usually available at most grocery and convenience stores, making them an easy snack choice. They are a rich source of folate, iron and niacin, which play a significant role in metabolizing and digesting proteins, carbohydrates, and fats while reducing cholesterol levels and lowering the risk of cardiovascular diseases. In recent years, pretzels have gained momentum among the young generation due to the introduction of new product variants in different shapes and sizes.

Global Pretzel Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the rapid shift in tastes and preferences and the hectic lifestyles of consumers. Additionally, due to the expanding food industry, pretzels are extensively being sold through various food service establishments and retail outlets. Besides this, the increasing penetration of e-commerce platforms is creating a positive market outlook. Other than this, the market players are introducing a variety of pretzels with exotic flavors, such as butter, honey mustard, barbecue, parmesan, and garlic. Furthermore, leading manufacturers are also adopting distinctive and innovative packaging techniques with resealable lids, which aid in preserving the freshness and extending the shelf-life of the products. With the increasing disposable incomes of the masses and rising number of health-conscious individuals, several key players are introducing cholesterol-, trans fat-, all-natural, and gluten-free products with vital minerals and vitamins to expand their consumer base.
