An Early Look at FNCE Food Trends

Greetings from Nashville.

I’m here at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ 2015 Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo.  It’s just the first day, so expect to be hearing more from me on the hot nutrition topics and food trends.  But here are my early observations from day 1.


Sprouted seed snacks from Go Raw and new Kashi bar Chewy Granola and Seed bars. Brad’s Broccoli Poppers are made with a combination of broccoli and sesame seeds.

Salad Kits for One

I love the idea of salad kits for one.  Here are new Take Aways salad kits from Dole (available in November) and Plant-Powered Protein Kits from Eat Smart.

The sprouted grains trend sprouted up this year, with new products from Kashi, Lundberg and others.

Beans and Lentils

2016 is the International Year of Pulses and pulses (beans and lentils) were everywhere this year at FNCE — in chips, pasta, hummus and flavorful fresh varieties (from the Better Bean).
