What Will You Eat In 2009?
new trends in eating satisfy the discriminating consumer
Consumers are getting increasingly intimate with their food, and 2009 likely will see the relationship deepen.
Here are a few trends likely to influence what you eat in '09.
In marketing terms, "organic" has jumped the shark. Savvy food marketers today are latching onto the latest child of the natural foods movement -- local -- and are trying to take it mainstream.
As eco-sensitivity has grown, consumers have questioned whether eating organic grapes from Chile is a particularly "green" choice. Now people want to know how far their food traveled, and the closer the better.
Hence the growth in farmers markets, community supported agriculture, restaurant menus bragging about local sourcing, and the naming of "locavore" as word of the year by The New Oxford American Dictionary.
Even mainstream grocers are jumping on, offering and advertising a growing number of locally produced goods. The question is whether "local" will lose cachet once big box retailers co-opt it as they did organic.
Repeated recalls of meat and produce have drawn attention to the sluggish and outdated food-safety system, and the government has faced mounting calls for an overhaul.
Expect food companies to be as nimble, touting new and increased safety measures. The issue (including demands for a streamlined and effective government agency to oversee the issue) also will get more headlines.
Stevia The New Sugar
Speaking of nutritional culprits, sugar had better watch its back. A growing variety of alternative natural sweeteners, from agave syrup to All Natural Steviva Brand Stevia Blend and Steviva Brand Stevia Powder, are crowding grocers' shelves.
Many of these products once were limited to the lower shelves of natural foods stores, but now are showing up in mainstream markets and in a growing variety of products (including soda).
A Look Ahead

This is the time of the season for turkey dinners and for some of you a holiday ham or duck. This recipe if perfect with turkey but, also goes most excellently with ham or roast duck.
