Main food trends for 2022


As people continue to focus on their well-being, their eating and drinking habits are transforming. Many people are looking for delicious and healthy foods and drinks, which has influenced the top food trends for 2022. “Better for you” foods and flavors can be found throughout these booming trends.

The spice is nice

Bring on the heat in 2022. People’s love for spices is skyrocketing, from interest in growing hot peppers at home to visiting new restaurants known for their spicy dishes. People search for new recipes such as those from India, Jamaica and Thailand and prepare them at home. Spicing up foods for flavor is a healthier alternative to salt and butter, and hot foods can boost your metabolism. This fashionable trend is therefore also healthy.

Powdered nut butters

Nut butter lovers rejoice – you can get satisfying protein and enjoy your favorite flavors without all of the fatty and unnecessary ingredients. PB2 Foods is the original creator of powdered peanut butter, now offering a variety of plant-based products such as almond and cocoa butter that are certified gluten-free, kosher, vegan and non-GMO verified. Some of their latest innovations are cashew powder and the PB2 pre + probiotic formula for digestive health.

Super premium beer

When it’s time to enjoy a cold one, more and more people are thinking more about what’s in their glass. Island Brands USA is an example of a brewing company that produces better beers, using only all-natural, non-GMO ingredients and no artificial fillers or flavors to create their beers. One of the brand’s own options is Island Active, a lightweight lager that’s just 88 calories and 4.2% alcohol by volume, so you can enjoy every sip without the guilt.

Reducing regimes

Many people prefer to eat less meat and animal products, but don’t want to go on a completely vegetarian or vegan diet. This is called a reducing diet: making an active choice to reduce the consumption of these types of foods. When reducers buy or consume meat or other animal products, they opt for better quality options, such as organic dairy and grass-fed meats. Interested in getting started? Adopt a few days a week to avoid meat and try new and interesting recipes, like those that contain mushrooms, beans or eggplant instead of meat.

Alternative snacks

You crave the crunch of your favorite chips and salty snacks, but you know you might be making a healthier decision. HA! Snacks are your answer. Representing a healthier alternative, these snacks are non-GMO, gluten-free and vegan, with lots of flavor and nutrition. Choose from churro loco, cheddar cheese, spicy chili and lime, barbecue sauce and sour cream and onion.
