May 08, 2019

     (0 Rating)

There's a reason why the old saying goes, 'the way to a person's heart is through their stomach.' Great food is something we all love!

Keep reading to get all the latest details about this year's food trends.

1. Eco-Friendly Packaging

One of the biggest food trends 2019 will see is an increase in eco-friendly products. Climate change is a major concern for most consumers.

When buyers have a choice, they're more likely to choose an environment-safe product. Several states have already banned single-use plastics. Businesses will soon follow suit and produce better packaging for food.

2. Humane Farm Foods

Awareness about the horrors of the meat industry has peaked. Learning about how animals are often treated in factories is shocking. These facts are changing consumer's behavior.

Now, buyers want foods that get produced in a humane way. That means more cage-free farm chickens and free-range cows.

3. Plant-Based Protein Products

One of the new food trends shaking up the market is "meats" that derive from plants rather than animals. Impossible Foods makes mock meat patties with coconut oil, potato, and wheat proteins.

4. Food Trends to Watch: Faux Meat

Like plant-based protein, faux meat snacks seek to duplicate meat in a healthier way. If you don't want to ditch the delicious meat flavor, then these snacks are a great option!

5. Growing Your Own Food

More households are beginning to create their own gardens. Why? More people are beginning to recognize the benefits of home-grown food!

Getting started does take a bit of an investment, but you'll save money on future grocery bills.

6. Natural Remedies

What's better than a food product that doubles as a remedy? One of the latest food trends is the revival of natural remedies.

Several of the most common healing herbs are often used in cooking. Even better, many can be grown for free at home.

7. Hemp Products

Society's perception of marijuana has been changing over the past several years. Regardless of how you feel about the drug, the actual hemp plant is now becoming a top 10 food craze.

Here's a list of the plant products that are edible:

  • Hemp hearts
  • Seeds
  • Oil

Don't worry! All hemp-related foods are non-psychoactive and very healthy. They're also completely legal.

8. Sea Snacks

Looking for something health-conscious to munch on? Check out some of the latest sea-worthy snacks:

  • Seaweed butter
  • Kelp noodles
  • Puffed water lily seeds
  • Salmon skin
  • Kelp jerky

These types of foods are already popular in Asia, but now they're becoming a hit in America.

9. Bring On the Brunch

We've all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but is that true? Recent studies suggest it may not be.

Big brunches (breakfast and lunch) are one of the growing restaurant trends for 2019. A Mexican restaurant that combines eggs with spices is a great place to try for your next brunch!

10. Probiotic Products

Probiotics are natural in Yogurt, but experts are now coming up with new strains. These awesome new probiotics have a longer shelf life. They also don't have to stay cold.

That means it can get added to granola, oatmeal, and other favorites.
