Since the launch of the EAT-Lancet report in 2019, there has been a steady rise in interest around plant-based eating. Alongside the 12.1% of Australians who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet, there has also been a rise in flexitarianism and consumers who are actively eating more plant-based foods.
What does this mean for you and the products you stock on your shelves? Well, over the past year, the number of plant-based items on Australian grocery shelves has doubled.
Savvy consumers are more aware of what they’re putting on their plate. They are reading food labels and searching for natural alternatives and more transparency around the entire product lifecycle.
In this shift, consumers are increasingly reaching for plant-based pantry staples to meet their dietary and lifestyle preferences. You may be familiar with many of these products while others may be completely new to you.
Discover some of our top-selling, plant-based pantry staples and why you need to stock them on your shelves.
Nutritional yeast is a great vegan alternative for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it has a similar flavour to cheese so can be used as an alternative to the popular dairy product. But also, Nutritional Yeast is very nutritious. It’s a good source of protein, B vitamins and trace minerals, which may all be particularly beneficial for people who follow a vegan diet.
Bragg Nutritional Yeast is a top-selling option that can be sprinkled on pasta, soups, popcorn or even added to sauces as a thickener.
Another option is the Cashew Parmesan from Extraordinary Foods. It contains nutritional yeast, cashews and other natural ingredients for a nuttier option with a texture similar to parmesan cheese.
Did you know that traditional seasonings can contain dairy products? Not to mention added refined sugar, fillers, sodium, preservatives and other unnecessary ingredients.
Mingle Seasonings are all-natural alternatives using only plant-based ingredients and they’re shaking up every category they enter!
The Cheezoning range from Flexible Foods is another all-natural seasoning option that also contains nutritional yeast for added flavour and nutrition benefits.
BROTH AND STOCK
Broth and stock are traditionally made from meat and often packed with additives, many of the vegetable or plant-based options included.
The Broth Sisters produce a range of plant-based vegetable Stock Concentrates as well as Vegetable Sipping Broth Bags. Using premium, fresh ingredients, the products are handcrafted in small batches and packed with flavour.
Plant-based meat is a growing category as consumers look for plant-based protein alternatives. The benefit of many of these modern options is that they are shelf stable so have a longer life and easier pantry storage.
Upton’s Naturals Jackfruit range isn’t a high-protein option but it is a delicious meat alternative. With a texture like shredded chicken, it’s a good base to build a meal as it works with so many different flavours.
Convenience is the word of the moment. People want to eat well. They want to follow a plant-based diet. But they want it to be easy and convenient.
From the Keto Bread in a Mug mixes from Get Ya Yum On to the popular Plantasy Foods Mac ‘n Cheez, The Good Soup ranges and the Botanika Blends Botanika Brekky Probiotic Porridge, there are many grab n’ go options for plant-based convenience.

Whilst at-home baking has always been a popular pastime, the exponential increase in this culinary “hometainment” hobby has exploded over the last year, with consumers searching for more and more ways to bake at home.
At-home baking continues to be a trend for 2021 and beyond, boosted by the influence of social media, an increase in accessible online baking classes and the need for people to ‘find their tribe’ and connect with those who share the same interests.
Couple this with an ever-increasing awareness of health and wellbeing and this is where an abundance of better-for-you healthy baking products come into their own.
Ibisworld reports that Australians are favouring healthier snacking options over traditional biscuits and treats. However, they are still looking to satisfy their sweet cravings. Today, it’s not just about meeting a craving, consumers are wanting indulgent-style products that still meet their nutritional needs and don’t derail their health goals.
With at-home baking becoming more popular, consumers are increasingly becoming more curious about using innovative products in their baking to create a better-for-you twist on old favourites or something new entirely.
Luckily, there are a number of manufacturers that are meeting the demand for these fulfilling, comforting, yet functional foods, with a wide range of innovative baking products ready for you to stock on your shelves.
BETTER BAKING BASICS
Better-for-you products encompass the ever-growing preference towards more natural ingredients. This also extends into the baking world.
BRAGGExtra Virgin Olive Oil is a multipurpose baking staple that adds the heart health benefits of olive oil into cakes. It’s also certified organic, gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and vegan friendly.
Their Apple Cider Vinegar is also a top-selling, household staple, that’s hugely versatile and is often used in baking for its leavening and flavour enhancing properties, creating a better crumb.
One of the most common baking basics are choc buttons! So it’s no surprise that the decadent Vego Fine Hazelnut Chocolate Melts are ‘the’ melts for more indulgent at-home bakes. Tasting like the centre of a Ferrero Rocher and 100% vegan, it’s a chocolate-lovers baking essential. They are certified organic, gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, fair trade and can be used both in traditional baking and as a comforting hot chocolate drink.
Gone are the days of limited choice when it comes to flours. With the realisation that many people struggle with food intolerances and restrictive diets, there has been an abundance of suppliers who provide alternative flours for innovative baking. The Gluten Free Food Co. provides both a gluten-free, grain-free flour blend and a gluten-free, wholemeal flour blend. They are both organic and high in fibre, featuring a helpful recipe for consumers to try on the packaging.
Australian grown and made, Green Banana Baking Flour from Natural Evolution is 100% gluten free, made from green bananas and grown in tropical north Queensland. Boasting impressive gut-health benefits thanks to its resistant starch content, it’s an on-trend addition that’s easily added to most baked goods.
Another great gluten-free flour alternative isSensory Mill’s Apple Flour, it is made of 100% carefully milled dried apples and can substitute ¼-½ of the flour amount required for most baking recipes. It provides an excellent source of fibre, is 98% fat free and is vegan friendly. It also adds a touch of sweetness, allowing consumers to use less sugar in their recipes.
MAKE IT WITH A MIX
Gold Coast company, Macro Mike, born from a personal search for inclusive products, has continued to push boundaries with a range that delivers on quality and taste using all-natural ingredients.
Their baking mixes cater to those who require gluten-free, vegan-friendly options that still allow them to meet their daily macros. Hugely popular, with a loyal social media following, Macro Mike’s baking mixes include decadent and stand-out flavours such as Blueberry White Choc Chip Almond Protein Muffin Baking Mix and Maple Cinnamon White Choc Chip flavour Protein Donut Baking Mix.
Better-for-you baking also carries across in the grab n’ go, convenient options. Botanika Blends Marvellous Mug Cakes perfectly combines quality ingredients in a convenient ‘just add water’ mix. The plant-based treat is packed with all-natural ingredients and is vegan, vegetarian and dairy free. Consumers will love this as an easy and quick cake option.
THE ICING ON THE CAKE
Many would agree that sweet and creamy icing is the best part of baking – and often the naughtiest! To help health-conscious consumers have their cake and eat it too, The Monday Food Co. has created vegetarian, keto-friendly icing! Flavours like Coconut Buttercream and Chocolate Buttercream are sure to entice. Plus, they are all-natural, made with organic ingredients, gut friendly and easy to make!
STOCK YOUR SHELVES WITH ON-TREND BETTER FOR YOU AT HOME BAKING PRODUCTS
At Unique Health Products we stock some of the biggest natural health brands in Australia. We are proud of the innovation and leading market position of our brands and the way they drive natural product packaging trends.
Whether they’re opting to follow a keto diet, transitioning to more plant-based meals or swapping main meals for regular snacks, Australian eating habits are changing. Despite the desire to eat healthier, they’re not willing to deny themselves a little indulgence.
IbisWorld research has found that the health and wellbeing concerns of Australians have increased over the last five years. As a nation, we are more aware of our health and the choices we make. The attitudes and preferences of consumers are changing, and this presents a great opportunity for the natural health industry.
This change is happening in the context of natural health trending mainstream. Grocery aisles are integrating, innovation in the natural health industry is thriving and consumers have an expectation of seeing more eco-friendly and healthier options as they do their shopping.
But that doesn’t mean consumers can’t also indulge in a healthy treat that aligns with their health goals. Cater to these customers who want to have their cake and eat it too with a selection of better-for-you healthy indulgences.
Combining convenience with healthy indulgence, packaged baking mixes are a simple way for consumers to have a healthier treat.
The chocolate market is a thriving one. As the interest in healthier living rises, so too do the healthier chocolate alternatives available to consumers.
What does healthier chocolate look like? For starters, there are protein-packed VitaWerx chocolates, vegan HeroCup nut butter cups, organic, fairtrade Bennetto chocolate blocks or the keto-friendly Little Zebra Chocolates. Consumers are spoiled for choice.
There is no denying that the opportunity for snack sales is booming but not everyone has a sweet tooth. For those people, an indulgence may be more of the savoury kind.
In the same vein as the convenient baking mixes, healthier mix-and-eat desserts are popular options.
Botanika Blends and Macro Mike are leaders in providing healthier desserts such as ‘nice cream’, custard and creamy puddings. The plant-based, all-natural options are also higher in protein offering healthy benefits all around.

25 years ago, natural health was considered niche or boutique. Natural health products were found in health food speciality stores. The health food section of other stores, if there was even one at all, likely consisted of just a handful of products.
Today, it’s a completely different story. The natural health industry has undergone quite the transformation. Don’t just take our word for it. Here are five signs that the tide has turned to take natural health to the mainstream.
AISLES ARE INTEGRATING
The health food aisle has long been a staple of grocery stores. Not anymore. As we’ve been talking about for some time now, retailers of all sizes, such as Coles, are integrating natural health products throughout their stores.
Consumers can more easily find the products they’re looking for and discover new, healthier alternatives. And retailers can benefit from increased visibility and sales of the natural health products on their shelves.
PACKAGING IS EVOLVING
Alongside the move towards integration, natural product packaging has also made a mainstream shift.
As the products themselves have become more mainstream, the packaging has stepped up with bold colours, sophisticated designs and a fresh take on what natural health can look like.
According to research from the CSIRO, the health and wellness sector in Australia, including functional foods, free-from products and vitamins and supplements will grow at 3.6% p.a. to 2030 (compared with growth of 2.4% p.a. for the food and agribusiness industry as a whole).
Personalised nutrition is driving consumers to seek out more products that help them to achieve their health and wellbeing goals.
INNOVATION IS THRIVING
The natural health industry is innovative by its very nature. But as brands and products have made the shift into the mainstream spotlight, the level of innovation has hit new heights.
Adaptogenic and nootropic ingredients, such as ashwagandha, reishi, rhodiola and ginseng are appearing in more and more products on the grocery shelves. Leaders in this space include Evolution Botanicals and The Ginger People. Brands such as Macro Mike and Botanika Blends are also continually innovating with flavour and product formulations.
The way these products have been embraced in the mainstream has facilitated even greater growth in innovation.
Natural health brands have a head start on sustainability. They are generally more conscious of the ingredients they use and the impact of their packaging on the environment. This is now a broader expectation across the board.
Brands like CLIF, East Bali Cashews and Koala Eco focus on sustainably sourced ingredients and reducing the environmental footprint of their packaging and operations.
TOP-SELLING NATURAL HEALTH BRANDS
At Unique Health Products we are proud to stock hundreds of leading and top-selling natural health brands. Over the last 25 years we have played an important role in bringing these products to the mainstream and we are focussed on continuing to do so into the future.
