2.2 Snack Food

Snack food is the one of type of food that is usually eaten in relax time. According to
Beckley & Moskowitz (2002) studied the expanded definition of snack foods of both salty and
sweet foods to assess a number of components of a single food, as the consumer might see them.
Previous and subsequent eating occasions therefore tended to be at mealtimes, but again less so
for a snack. It is a popular belief that people who snack frequently have a bad diet and they a re
either overweight or will become overweight. Snacking is viewed as being food that is eaten in
addition to 3 standard meals and therefore it is perceived as providing extra calories. A small
amount of food eaten approximately an hour before a meal is unlikely to decrease intake at the
next meal (Booth, 1980). According to Chamontin,Pretzer & Booth (2003) a snack also differed
from snacking or eating snack food in eliciting more reports by women of eating in the home
than out, and more eating alone than in company. It is proved that snacking was best defined as
food or drink eaten between main meals.
According to Drummond (1995) found no difference in energy intake between frequent
and infrequent snackers, so there is little evidence to suggest that increased consumption of
snacks leads to an excess of “empty” calories. But according to Metzner (1977) who ate 6 meals
per day with those who ate 2 meals . No significant differences were found with respect to Body
Mass Index (BMI). This contradicts the belief that increased snacking leads to an increase in
weight (Booth,1988). It is argued that increased snacking can be beneficial as long as an energy
balance is maintained.
In Indonesia snack usually not eat in mealtimes but many people in Indonesia eat snack
in breakfast but sometimes salty snack can be food for lunch. According to the studies released
by YouGov (2015) Indonesia is one of the top two countries within the Asia Pacific region
with the biggest snacking habit, it also reveals that Indonesia’s snacking habit is not only the
biggest, but it also grows and possibly have the most potential in cultivating a healthy snack
market. The demand for both savory and sweet snacks continues to increase because of more
affordable prices, and smaller, more attractive packaging. It is a competitive industry and ranges
from small to large scale manufactures. The volumes of ingredients required may increase three
to five times more prior to and during the Ramadan period. Snacks are popular during the fasting
month and are exchanged as gifts during Ramadan among all Indonesians. According to Pekerti
(2010) Indonesia’s 82 million children and teenagers are the targeted consumers for snack
manufactures. Medium and low-end manufactures produce snacks for almost exclusively for
traditional markets, as these outlets have lower quality and packaging requirements. About five
to ten percent of the products go to modern retailers.
