How Naturis’ Impulses fit in consumer trends of 2026

Naturis’ customers, especially in the ready-to-eat segment, quick commerce, and vegetarian segment have been asking for crunchy solutions for a while, and… their wish list is long: healthy, not fried, 100% plant-based, answering the demand for meat substitution, gluten-free, low in calories, maintaining crunchiness when soaked in milk or topped on salads. At Naturis, we made the impossible possible, and our famous Impulses’ line was born.

Embarking on the journey of Naturis’ Impulses unveils a treasure trove of nutrients. At their core lies pulses, revered for their robust protein content. These leguminous powerhouses serve as the linchpin of the Impulses product range, offering a sustainable wellspring of energy. This makes them an ideal choice for those seeking an active and balanced lifestyle. Moreover, pulses are endowed with copious amounts of dietary fiber, which not only promotes digestive health but also induces a sense of satiety. This dual-action benefit makes them an invaluable ally in weight management endeavors.

At Naturis, we want to offer off-the-shelf solutions and Impulses product line fits in our sustainable, ready-to-consume, 100% plant-based strategy.
