2020 was a year unlike any other, to put it lightly, and its effects will assuredly still be felt in 2021. That’s particularly true when it comes to what and how people eat. From boxed wine to ghost restaurants, expect to see these food trends gain popularity in 2021.
In October 2020, Whole Foods published a report predicting the trends that’d be taking over the world of food in 2021. One of the trends the company suggested is a rise in popularity for a range of new oils among at-home chefs. These include walnut and pumpkin seed oils.
According to Healthline, walnut seed oil has a number of health benefits: it’s good for your skin, helps lower blood pressure, improves cholesterol levels, and may even have anti-cancer effects. Pumpkin seed oil can have a positive effect on your skin, heart, and prostate; is said to ward off depression; and may even relieve some of the symptoms of menopause.
It won’t all be fancy alternative oils in 2021, though. According to Food Business News, 2021 will also see olive oil reach news heights of popularity. Food trend forecaster Elizabeth Moskow said elenolide, a component in olive oil with anti-hypertensive and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as tyrosol], a compound that protects against neurodegenerative diseases, are particularly attractive to health-conscious eaters.
