Times Of India Outlines 2022 Healthier Food Trends

March 4, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
Indian eating habits are changing in response to global factors such as the COVID pandemic, climate change, and consumer awareness about sustainability, zero waste and cleaning eating. A recent article highlighted key trends in India. It sees Indian consumers becoming more experimental as healthy snacking evolves, with one report finding around eight in 10 Indians want to replace one or more meals a day with snacks. Other studies found that healthy snacks are increasingly seen as meal alternatives as well as providing comfort and health benefits. More generally, the article expects more conscious eating to prevail, with a greater focus on local ingredients and more concern about the pros and cons of different types of food; increasing demand for superfoods, such as millets, of which India grows nearly 80 varieties; more interest in non-native foods, such as olive oil, often seen by Indians as an out-of-home aspirational flavor, but increasingly as a healthier oil for at-home food, and for different fruits and vegetables, such as broccoli, red cabbage and dragon fruits; plant-based food and beverage options, including plant-based milk; and greater awareness of sustainability and zero waste issues.
