Foodie Trends

17 Jan 2018

Every year there’s always a new food fad. We’ve had cupcakes and pro-biotic yogurts, coconut oil, nut milks, the list is endless. So if you want to keep your kitchen cupboards on trend, then keep an eye out for these things hitting the supermarket shelves!...

Plant proteins...

As more and more people adopt flexitarian diets (more than a third of the UK population now identify as part-time vegetarians, according to research), people are looking to replace meat proteins with plant proteins.

Turmeric...

This is a spice associated with Indian cuisine, particularly certain kinds of curry. But it’s now being recognised as much more than a curry ingredient. It helps your digestive system because it contains bioactive compounds. According to Cancer Research UK, Curcumin (the compound that gives turmeric it’s bright yellow colour) has anticancer effects. It seems to be able to kill cancer cells and prevent more from growing. It has the best effects on breast cancer, bowel cancer, stomach cancer and skin cancer cells.

Fermented Foods...

These foods are noted for being able to give you an energy boost, and they can improve your digestive system. Miso (used for the delicious Miso soup) is made from fermented soybeans, and it’s growing in popularity. Tempeh, natto and kimchi are also great examples of fermented foods. All foods for boosting your good gut bacteria!

Korean Food...

Anyone who is a fan of Asian food but hasn’t eaten much Korean food yet, this is set to be a very welcome change. It remains to be seen what kind of creative things can be done with Korean food. Seaweed and tofu soup is one recipe that many restaurants are starting to try out, and the same is true of grilled squid salad.

Poke...

This is a type of raw fish salad. It’s not widely known to most people just yet. But interest in this salad is certainly on the rise and this year it might be the major trend. It’s a Hawaiian dish, and that’s where it’s served best. So, next time you’re on a Hawaiian island, be sure to check it out.

Cassava Flour...

If you’re looking for a new and healthier type of flour to use in your cooking and baking, look no further than cassava flour. It’s used a lot in some parts of Asia and South America. It’s perfect for people in need of gluten-free ingredients, and it’s also grain-free as well. Even if you don’t have any allergies to contend with, this is a super-healthy ingredient and one that lots of people will be using more of in 2018. It’s a source of carbohydrate, and it doesn’t contain any nuts either.

Seaweed Seaweed...

is a fantastic food for anyone who wants to get their fill of protein without eating too much meat. It’s a type of food that has been popular among vegetarians for a long time. And there is no reason why other people won’t start to eat it too. It’s health properties are stunning, and there are no negative properties. It can be cooked in all kinds of ways; just look at what the Japanese do with it. It’s a massively important food in Japan, and that’s a country with one of the highest life expectancy rates in the world, so they must know what they’re talking about!
