Where are American palates headed? A new study released by the Hartman Group has some clues for new food trends in the country.
The trend-watching firm has identified what it sees coming next, reports FoodNavigator-USA.com. Among those trends are:
- High-Pressure Processing: HPP processes food by killing germs and softening it without making it less “raw.”
- Protein: Diets high in protein mean a more satisfying dining experience.
- Cultured foods: More pickled and fermented foods to promote digestion and immune system health.
- Plant-based foods: While avoiding vegetarianism, people are adding more plants to their diet.
- Culinary botanicals: More herbs and spices with food.
- Premium private labels: Americans like paying more for exclusivity.
- Edible packaging: Using existing food products to package and complement other foods.
- Ethics in food production: Sustainable seafood and better treatment of other animals.
- Upgraded convenience: Convenience stores move away from packaged foods that aren’t fresh.
- Snacks with more flavors: A wider variety of snack foods and other convenient eats.
- Cleaner candy: Better and more healthy ingredients in candy.
- Sugar: the new bogeyman: Food packagers avoid sugar due to bad press.
