7 Food Trends You Need To Watch Out For In 2020hungrezi_admin
A new year and a new decade have been born and while it is time to reminisce the food trends that have emerged, stayed and even vanished in 2019, it is time to be prepared for what 2020 will bring to the culinary world. Here are 7 food trends you can expect in the gastronomic space this year.
More than milk
One of the biggest food trends in 2020 will be the rise of milk alternatives. They are all set to become more interesting than just almond milk and soy milk. In addition to existing alternatives for lactose intolerant people and vegans, more options like coconut milk, rice milk, hemp milk, and oat milk are all set to take center stage.
Cauliflower instead of carbs
Cauliflower as a substitute for carbs is already popular and is only going to get even more so. As we roll into 2020, be prepared to experience an increasing number of dishes featuring cauliflower as a replacement for traditional carbs. Think more of cauliflower rice, cauliflower pizza crust and whatever else creative culinary minds can come up with.
More spreads, butter, and dips
We all love Nutella, maybe even too much at times, but there’s more coming our way when incomes to spreads. More kinds of flavored butter, spreads and dips will be making an entrance in 2020 and it’s definitely something to be excited about.
With regular flavors quickly taking the backstage, appeasing the boredom of the adventurous foodie has become the need of the hour. Enter cross-cultural fusions. Fusing flavors of different cultures including French, Italian, Mexican and Asian fusions will be a hot trend to look out for in 2020.
Vacuum-fried over regular fried
Though vacuum-fried vegetables have been around for a few years, the increasing shift towards healthier snack options will be putting it under the limelight in 2020. Expect more supermarket shelves lined with vacuum-fried veggies and snacks than ever before, and of course, they are here to stay.
Kids food ain’t child’s play anymore
In 2020, kids will be blessed by the culinary gods with more choice and range. With adults quickly getting exposed to multi-cultural cuisine and different flavors, it is soon going to be extended to kids as well. Getting exposed to different flavors and cuisines will be starting at a much younger age henceforth.
Sustainability on a plate
With the world experiencing the aftermath of a rapidly deteriorating nature, there is an increasing shift towards the consumption of sustainable foods. Food that is grown and produced locally, food that has been cultivated through organic means, and food sourced from regional farmers are about to become more popular this 2020.
