Top Food Trends for 2022



As people continue to place renewed focus on their wellness, their eating and drinking habits are transforming. Many people are seeking out delicious foods and beverages that are also wholesome, which has influenced the top food trends for 2022. “Better-for-you” foods and flavors can be found throughout these burgeoning trends.


Spice is nice

Bring on the heat in 2022. People's love of spice is soaring, from interest in growing hot peppers at home to visiting new restaurants known for spicy dishes. People are searching for new recipes such as those from India, Jamaica, and Thailand and making them at home. Adding spice to foods for flavor is a healthier alternative to salt and butter, and hot foods may stimulate your metabolism, so this hot trend is also a healthy one.



Powdered nut butters

Nut butter lovers rejoice — you can get satisfying protein and enjoy your favorite flavors without all the fat 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 project verified. Some of their newest innovations are cashew powder and PB2 Pre+Probiotic formula for digestive health.


Super premium beer

When it's time to enjoy a cold one, more people are putting extra thought into what's in their glass. Island Brands USA is one example of a brewing company that’s churning out better brews, using only all-natural ingredients, no GMOs, and zero fillers or artificial flavors to create their beers. One of the brand’s clean options is Island Active, a light lager that has just 88 calories and 4.2 percent alcohol by volume, so you can enjoy each sip guilt-free.



Reducitarian diets

Many people prefer to eat less meat and animal products but don't want to opt for a fully vegetarian or vegan diet. This is called a reducitarian diet: making the active choice to reduce consumption of these types of foods. When reducitarians do purchase or consume meat or other animal products, they opt for higher-quality options, such as organic dairy and grass-fed meats. Interested in getting started? Adopt a few days a week to go meatless and try interesting new recipes, such as ones that feature mushrooms, beans, or eggplant instead of meat.


Alternative snacks

You crave the crunch of your favorite potato chips and salty snacks, but you know you could be making a healthier decision. HA! Snacks is your answer. Standing for Healthier Alternative, these snacks are non-GMO, gluten-free, and vegan, with plenty of flavor and nutrition. Choose from Churro Loco, Cheddar Cheese, Spicy Chili Lime, BBQ Sauce, and Sour Cream and Onion.
