One of the fastest-growing and most diverse segments of the U.S. population, Asian-Americans are both driving the growth of Asian and Indian foods through their own spending power and, at the same time, changing the palates of their fellow Americans. A broad spectrum of food products from an increasingly wide range of Asian cuisines is fast finding a place in mainstream grocery channels and on mainstream American tables. Along with Chinese food, American consumers are embracing Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, and other Asian cuisines, as well as Asian-inspired fusion dishes (Thai chicken pizza anyone?).
