Food Trends That Are About To Take Over 2020

Food Trends That Are About To Take Over 2020

Let’s talk 2020 food trends, and find out what new foods the experts think we’re going to be seeing in our social media feeds once the new year arrives and what current food trends are going to get even bigger.

Seaweed has been a dietary staple for a long, long time, but according to analysts at NPD Group, 2020 is going to be the year when seaweed becomes more than just a staple for certain parts of the world. They say not only is it one of the fastest-growing trends in restaurants, but you’re going to be seeing more and more seaweed-based snack foods, like chips, claiming valuable shelf space in grocery stores across the country. 

So first thing’s first: Why?

Well, it’s good for you. Healthline says it’s been linked with supporting thyroid function and gut health, as well as being a good source of vitamins and antioxidants. Mara Seaweed says it’s also completely sustainable, grows without using resources needed by other crops, grows very fast, and removes CO2 from the atmosphere. 

It’s no wonder that Prepared Foods is calling seaweed 2020’s hot ingredient.

It’s no secret that plant-based meat alternatives have been big, and it’s likely they’ll continue to rise in popularity. Jackfruit is among those, and if you haven’t heard of it or tried it yet, it’s pretty cool. 

A single jackfruit can weigh up to 100 pounds, although 10 to 25 pounds is more average. It’s traditionally found in Southeast Asia and the Pacific, and you can use the fruit, leaves, and seeds. It’s incredibly versatile. 

You can eat jackfruit raw, dry it, fry it, turn it into jam, or, when it’s prepared the right way, it’s a strangely accurate substitute for pulled pork. It’s also pretty good when it comes to substituting for something like mutton, and in Bengali households where it’s been used as a staple for generations it’s even known as “tree goat.” 

It gets better: jackfruit is low-calorie, low-carb, high in protein, fiber, and vitamins. It’s also a hardy crop that requires little irrigation. 

Just think of all those super-creative jackfruit tacos, sliders, and bowls just waiting to be made, photographed, and put on Instagram!

Go to any coffee shop worth its salt and you’ll find at least a few non-dairy milk options. Soy milk and almond milk are pretty popular, but according to Bloomberg, oat milk is poised to be the next big thing in non-dairy milk for 2020. 

The people making those predictions are basing a large part of that on Oatly, a massive Swedish company who have recently invested $15 million in opening an oat processing plant in New Jersey. Between 2017 and 2019, oat milk sales have jumped from $4.4 million to $29 million. Given those numbers, it’s no wonder Oatly decided to hop on this bandwagon and even kick-start a program encouraging Midwestern farmers to grow oats as well as the more typical corn and soy crops. 

They’re not the only game in town and other beverage manufacturers are gearing up to release their oat milk offerings, which experts say is just another way plant-based foods are moving into the more mainstream market.

    The proudest moments of my life are watching my kiddos chow down on steaks fresh off the grill. Perfect moments of silence until those steaks are devoured!! Moments that could make Ron Swanson drop a tear!

  5. Aly K on September 2, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    How many of these have died to to corona?
    If I eat vegetarian, which I do often, I don’t want it to taste like meat, I want it to taste like it’s vegetarian. I don’t get why meat free meat is a thing. Either eat meat or eat vegetarian.



  6. Alison A on September 2, 2021 at 11:41 pm

  20. Aeon on September 3, 2021 at 12:01 am

    seaweed and Jack fruit I can see, everything else is a nah. Also, why make vegetarian foods taste like the meat option such as a burger. It’s like living in denial.



  21. CATER PANDA FOOD DELIVERY on September 3, 2021 at 12:03 am

  25. Dubb Holiday on September 3, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Plant based meat is nasty, way too much hype for nothing.



  26. Alexandria RidgenHall on September 3, 2021 at 12:07 am

  27. hey it’s mel on September 3, 2021 at 12:08 am

    So essentially: gentrified overpriced food trends that are about to take over 2020



  28. Phuck Hugh on September 3, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Vegie burgers are processed more and have more salt, less flavor, and less satisfying and less healthy.



  29. Mashed on September 3, 2021 at 12:08 am

    Which of these trends are you most on board with?



  30. EC DC on September 3, 2021 at 12:10 am

    All these have been a thing since the start of 2019 as far as being popular.



  31. Siddhiraj Sakhare on September 3, 2021 at 12:11 am

    😑😑😑😑😑BIG PROBLEM with the S-weed is its highe…super high vitamin k content. Which permotes clotting of human blood and interactions with your medications. Consult your DR….. FAIR WARNING FOLKS



  44. Kkn_D on September 3, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Stop making vegan as some kind of religion naming veganism. Just eat your damn food, no need to put it out everywhere. We south asia part. Vegetables are foods, meats are in choosing corner. Just because you western ruined your agriculture industry, stop making everything trendy game.🤦🏻‍♂



  45. Kesheen Paul on September 3, 2021 at 12:28 am

    How things have changed in just four months!



  46. Darius Hampton on September 3, 2021 at 12:30 am

    Not in the south🙅🏾‍♂️ keep that shit outta here



  47. Anurania on September 3, 2021 at 12:31 am

    The last thing we need is a new bottled water fad. How much waste is that going to produce? We can’t recycle it either now that China has banned garbage ships. Everything put into a recycling bin goes straight to the landfill.



  48. Jay David on September 3, 2021 at 12:33 am

    jack fruit is soo overhyped, I’m sure most who speak about it have never tried it, it’s a funny tasting fruit



  49. Sonya Berry on September 3, 2021 at 12:35 am

    alternative flour is usually lower in carbs which is good for diebetics
