Food Trends That Will Dictate 2022 (India)

The New Year brings with it some new tidings and new trends and not just any but we are talking about certain popular food trends that are bound to rule 2022. We are no strangers to the fact that food and beverages are a trendsetting category taking the world by storm.

Every day new dishes and a new drink to go along are being presented on the culinary trail making it more exciting than ever before. Already the trend of fusion, a confluence of two different cuisines is slowly but steadily spreading its wings to make its presence felt. What more can we expect in the year 2022?

A renewed interest in the health-conscious generation is suddenly seeing vast potential in plant-based foods which are already gaining steady acceptance and popularity. A near flood-like situation in the array of plant-based protein options is literally announcing the renaissance of plant-based and vegan food alternatives in the growing market space.

No more the embarrassing moments of getting drunk and even carrying a hangover the following day. Mocktails and Alcohol by Volume are the drinks catching up these days. Non Alcoholic drinks like Gin and Tonic or Rum and Cola are the favourites of the day.

Even the topmost Beer Brands have come up with a range of non-alcoholic flavoured Beers and Mocktails continue to let their presence be felt in the Restaurant’s Menu by their ever-expanding base. So you can get the feel of drinking, experience the taste but without being actually drunk, that’s kinda cool, isn’t it?

With the increasing love for Korean dramas in India, the K-Cuisine is also rapidly gaining popularity.  A cuisine simply full of colours, textures and flavours, Korean food is one of the hottest food trends all set to dominate 2022.

Even in the supermarkets, you can see some quick-fix instant foods that are increasingly finding favour with the masses.

K-Cuisine is also emerging as a speciality in most restaurants and gaining popularity amongst one and all.

Another growing area in 2022 is that of Sustainable Foods. We have a number of celebrated chefs working towards the ample availability of the same, both in Indian as well as Continental varieties.

A low-wastage sustainable diet is the want of the hour. Most of the food brands and restaurants are diligently working towards healthy and safe ways to reuse the leftovers or donate them to the underprivileged. A lot of work is going into it and most certainly the outcome is good for every stakeholder.

A rainbow of condiments has really taken over the market with some exotic ones making the scene an intriguing one. Spices are always going to be an integral part of Indian Cuisine and with the onslaught of various new offerings, cooking is going to be ever so exciting. New spices, microgreens, healthy snacking options, 2022 will be ruled by all these food trends. What do you think?
