Top Health-Food Trends in 2019
By Alexis Mills
There are constantly new health trends coming out and new products that can help you eat more nutritious food. Since the health industry is constantly creating and updating products, it is almost impossible to stay up to date and see which ones are worth investing in or not. To help you out, here are the food trends in 2019 that you will notice spreading in the grocery stores -- and why they are so great for your health.
Probiotics for Better Gut Health
The topic of gut health has blown up in the past few years and we will continue to see more products that will incorporate probiotics and prebiotics to help the bacteria in our gut stay healthy. People are realizing how much gut-healthy foods are helping fight off health conditions so there are many options beyond yogurt to help.
Many food companies are continuing to make their products great for our bodies as well as the planet. Through packaging and ingredients used, brands are moving more toward how they can support healthy people, animals, and the environment.
Eating healthy is hardest when you become overly busy and don't have the time to prepare healthy foods for yourself. Luckily, it's becoming easier to eat healthy when you are in a hurry; new products are being made that are filled with nutrients but targeted to convenience.
Plant-based diets are a huge health trend that isn't going anywhere anytime soon. That has led to milks being made from practically every type of nut you could imagine. Whether it's an allergy or a preference, there is something out there to satisfy everyone.
Whether it's for people who are allergic to lactose or are trying out a diet, there are now plenty of dairy-free products that aren't just milk alternatives. Things from yogurt, cheeses, and kefir are all offering new products that are lactose-free.
Keto and Paleo Friendly Foods
The diets keto and paleo have taken over and food labels have picked up on these trends to establish products that are either keto-friendly or paleo-friendly. People are now wanting to know more about the function behind the food they are eating and the ingredients that are in the food.
While you might think most health food trends are silly, there really is a lot of positivity that stems with these trends. People are putting more of a focus on what foods they are consuming and how it effects their health.
