Food trends are always changing and according to the Mayo Clinic website, http://mayoclinic.com/health/comments/MY01645 , these six food trends will be popular in 2011.
Home food preservation and canning is a popular trend continuing from the weak economy. More people are taking this step to control the amount of sugar, salt and preservatives in their diet.
With more women in the workforce,more men are in the kitchen than ever before.
Technology can help in the kitchen with instant information online or on your phone about food nutrition, recipes and coupons to download.
Local buying is also a popular food trend. Consumers want to know where their food came from and patronize local merchants at the same time.
Expanding the comfort zone and trying new foods is one way to wake up your taste buds and improve your outlook towards nutritious foods.
Baby boomers are always looking for the new ‘super food’ to supply nutrients to help preserve vitality and delay aging. The search is still on, but you will find an abundance of super foods in your produce aisle, according to Mayo Clinic nutritionists, Jennifer Nelson, M.S., R.D. and Katherine Zeratsky, R.D.
