The Top 3 Vegan Food Trends in 2017

2017 has been an exciting year for vegan food. Here are some of this year’s hottest vegan food trends.

  1. Protein-centric foods

As part of a wider food trend, much of the focus on healthy eating has been on high-protein foods. Proponents argue that high-protein foods keep you fuller for longer, meaning there is less chance of snacking on unhealthy foods between meals. Some of this year’s hottest vegan ingredients include:

  • Amaranth – Similar to quinoa, amaranth is a much smaller seed. However, this tiny seed is packed with nutrients including iron, B vitamins, and magnesium. Just one standard cup of cooked amaranth contains seven grams of protein.
  • Tempeh – Another trending ingredient in 2017 is tempeh which is a fermented form of soy. One standard cup of cooked tempeh contains up to twelve grams of protein, as well as being high in probiotics, making it a great alternative to yogurt.
  • Edamame – Edamame is full of protein, fiber and other nutrients. One standard cup of cooked edamame contains up to seventeen grams of protein! It can be eaten in its natural state or roasted to make a great alternative to chips!
