Health Food Trends

What's Going to Be the Next Big Health Food Trend?

First it was hummus, then soy milk, then almond milk. Now it's Greek yogurt that's the hottest health food trend: sales of brands like Fage and Chobani are through the roof. In just five years, sales of this thick, protein-rich yogurt have grown 2500 percent.

Americans can't seem to stop catching waves of the latest whole foods. But now that açai, goji berry, quinoa, and probiotic yogurt have already been discovered en masse, I can't help but wonder what, if anything, will soon jump the shark. Surely you have some thoughts on what wholesome foods are going to be big next. Share them below!

There we are amber512 - proof yet again that we are divided by our common language. In the UK greek yoghurt is 10% fat whereas normal yoghurt is only 2%!

I would agree with awesomepants that was pretty heroic fuzzles! And I will also confirm her method above totally works and makes a really delicious end result. It is actually sort of amazing how much liquid comes out of regular yogurt! Good luck!

awesomepants, You can make your own Greek yogurt! Just take regular plain yogurt and strain it in a sieve lined with cheesecloth for several hours. Be sure to hold everything in the frigde during the process. Toss out the water and carry on with all the yummy deliciousness!

I really can't say because in Canada we are WAY behind the current food trends. It's super hard to find greek yogurt let alone flavoured greek yogurt. I've heard so many good things about chobani. I just wish they would bring it to Canada.

I read somewhere that rooibos tea is going to be the next beverage trend.

kale, cooking with coconut oil & I think we will see a big trend in more and more plant based foods.

It's not high in fat at all, but it is super high in protein making it an awesome protein option for vegetarians especially. Plus since it is so much thicker than regular yogurt it is suuuper creamy. And a great replacement for mayo in recipes. Love!

Please explain to me, I'm not in the US so I haven't seen this trend myself, what is so healthy about Greek yogurt? I always think of it as delicious but so anughty because it is high in fat Mind you the Total(Fage) 0% fat yogurt is truly wonderful.
