This great article is definitely a "must read". It discusses all of the latest food trends.
Food trends are like fashion, they change in the blink of an eye and out of nowhere everyone is wearing the same thing. Kale was the biggest food trend in 2015 but what will be the latest and greatest food trend now?
Poke is definitely an emerging food trend today. Poke originated in Hawaii but is definitely not going anywhere anytime soon. Who wouldn’t want chunks of tuna soaked in soy & sesame oil marinade and served atop seaweed-seasoned rice? Fish is a very healthy protein source—it's lower in saturated fat and higher in healthy omega-3s than most meat. Poke also has a lot of Omega 3.
Another hot food trend that is reaching America is Baobab which is fruit from the baobab tree. Baobab is native to Madagascar and mainland Africa and is rich in Vitamin C. 1 Baobab contains 12 calories and 2 grams of fiber. Baobab fruit is high in calcium, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, zinc, vitamin A, thiamin, B6 and bioflavonoids. It also acts as a prebiotic and is high in fiber.
Make sure you stay up to date with the latest and greatest food trends so you are eating the right things and can the nutrients that these foods provide.
