Food Trends for Your Health

Chef Latina

Always at the start of a new year, trends in food are predicted. These predictions come from experts, top food brands, and even consumers. And this year is no exception.

For my peace of mind, and that of many of us who are passionate about health, this year it is predicted that we will not only be more aware of what we eat, but of our health, the environment and how it relates to the kitchen.

Whole Foods, for example, claims that "eco-conscious packaging" and the increase of seafood snacks and other snacks high in Omega 3 will be the most popular. The organization also points out that the quality of "munchies" in general will improve. This makes me think that if we are willing to invest a little more in the quality of what we eat, even at snack time, we can see good results at the end of the year in terms of our health.

There is also talk of higher quality artisan products, such as cheeses or even the ham in a simple sandwich, becoming more desired by consumers. In addition, Whole Foods mentions that the flavors of the Pacific Coast and the consumption of probiotics, which do so much good and offer the return of good fats, will become fashionable.

Forbes Magazine assures there will be a decline in the consumption of sweets and predicts there will be much more consumer awareness in terms of sugar consumption overall, starting with drinks with high sugar content.

Another thing that will make our sweet preferences decline is the mandatory labeling of added sugar. The FDA has set January 1, 2020 as the date for most food manufacturers to switch to a new label that indicates the amount of natural sugar in a product and the amount that is added artificially. As consumers learn to read these labels, they will begin to demand products with less added sugar, which will help balance our palates and will consequently be reflected in our health.

Finally, Forbes points out that food and beverages with clear and honest labels will become the new norm. Lists of few ingredients and real foods will abound in all categories.

These predictions great for everyone. If they are correct, we will surely see less pounds, more energy and better overall health.
