Soy-based, Latin-inspired foods top list of foods to watch in the year 2000
Its a New Year, new century and another chance to predict what foods will be "in" this year. Expect to see several new trends make their way into restaurants and supermarkets across the nation and possibly into the new millennium.
According to Cooking Light magazine, we should see lots of new foods touting the inclusion of soy in their products. Thats because last fall the Food and Drug Administration approved a health claim that soy products do help cut risk for heart disease. With that news we will see more and more soy products in grocery stores. Soy- based products can be found just about everywhere in the produce section, the ice cream section, the dairy section and even among the snacks.
Latin-inspired foods are "hot" this year. Maybe its the popularity of Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesius, but whatever the reason the Latin foods are taking top billing in many restaurants. Latin cafes and Cuban bars are popping up everywhere. Seattles Best Coffee is highlighting the Latin-trend this Valentines Day. The coffee shop is now offering Latin-lovers coffee drink and Latin-inspired Valentine products in its stores nationwide.
The proliferation of local farmers markets across the country will spark
greater emphasis on locally grown produce. And more people will be growing
their own herbs to use in cooking.
