PROBIOTIC DRINKS:

Many everyday drinks will soon have probiotics in helping with gut health. Interesting have to admit for sure.

  1. TEA: with tea ranges expanding all the time to aid a healthy boost we will soon see heat-resistant strains of probiotics in them.
  2. Kombucha floats
    The popular fermented tea gets a modern twist with this healthier take on the classic root beer confection. Never tried but could be worth trying a modern twist on a classic.
  3. JUICE DRINKS: yes Fruit drinks will be getting in on the probiotic trend, adding live and active cultures.
  4. Drinkable vinegar
    Predicted to be the next kombucha, the vinegar is diluted using sparkling water or juice and typically contains billions of live and active cultures. I am bit sceptical about the taste on this myself.

WELLNESS DRINKS:

  1. Watermelon juice
    This workout recovery drink is rich in antioxidants and contains an amino acid that may reduce muscle soreness.
  2. Pickle juice
    Look for this low-calorie fix for muscle cramps in unlikely products like ice pops and fruit punch. I am curious on this one for sure.
  3. Plant-based water
    Birch, maple, and cactus waters deliver big flavor without loads of sugar. This will be a fab product to try especially with big flavours and low sugar in.
  4. Oat milk
    Expect to see this sweet-tasting, dairy-free alternative to milk in new, ready-to-drink products. I personally hate this stuff but am not a huge milk tasting fan or oats in puree form.

HOT THINGS COMING IN FOR 2018:

FLEXITARIAN DIET
This plant-based diet occasionally includes meat in a more relaxed approach to reaping health rewards.

SIPPABLE SOUPS
Unlike juice, these veggie-packed bottled soups are packed with fiber.

NATTO
The Japanese dish made of fermented soybeans is trending, thanks to its appealingly savory flavor.

AVOCADO OIL
You’ll see this oil, much lower in saturated fat than coconut, in an increasing number of products, including chips and mayonnaise.

CASSAVA FLOUR
Rich in fiber and made from a root vegetable native to Brazil, this flour is the new gluten-free, grain-free staple.

BABY QUINOA
Tiny and crunchy, baby quinoa delivers many of the same health benefits as quinoa and a bit more protein.

GINGER
This root is taking over as the “it” flavor, especially in beverages. Ginger water, juice, and infusions will flood the market.

ROOT VEGETABLES
You’ll see more breads made with naturally sweet, vitamin A-rich sweet potato and squash as the main starches.

CASHEW MILK
Almond milk has been a consistently popular alternative to soy, but slightly sweeter cashew milk is gaining ground
