According to the latest Packaged Facts’ Culinary Trend Tracking Series report, multicultural wellness ingredients are emerging as a new trend.
While most Americans want to eat healthier, most that do are aged 35 and older. Likewise, the Americans that are trying new foods are mostly aged 18 to 44, said Packaged Facts Research Director David Sprinkle in the report.
Multicultural wellness ingredients are bringing these two groups together. The ingredients appeal to adventurous young shoppers, as well as health-conscious older shoppers.
Teff, avocados, matcha, pumpkin seeds and lentils are five increasingly popular ingredients that the report mentioned. Check out these four products that use these ingredients and are Made With Honey!
