Market Overview:

Kale is a green leafy vegetable belonging to the cruciferous family, the same family as cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. It has a cult-like status among many vegans and vegetarians and is often seen as the cornerstone of their nutrition. Kale is a great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, manganese and copper, like many other green leafy vegetables. It's also a great source of beta-carotene, which can be transformed to the usable vitamin A. However, like most other green leafy vegetables, the nutrients in kale are harder to absorb when the vegetable is eaten raw. As a result, consumers prefer crunchy kale chips, which can be seasoned with cayenne pepper for a spicy snack, or just sea salt, served with ranch dressing, or dipped into hummus for a protein boost. The kale chips market is likely to be driven in the future by these versatile serving alternatives backed by health advantages. The global kale chips market valued USD XX million in 2020 and is forecasted to reach USD XX million by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2021-2028)
