Flavors and ingredients will take on starring roles in 2007 as consumers increasingly demand bigger, bolder tastes; foods that are healthy; and ingredients that are natural or sustainable. This year, quality as well as comfort and convenience will rule. Ethnic flavors will expand and grow, and organic foods will continue to gain traction. Consumers are increasingly sophisticated and want more upscale flavors and ingredients. At the same time, though, there is a real move toward comfort and classic foods. Following are just some of the exciting, challenging and somewhat contradictory trends that will affect flavors and ingredients in 2007.
Packaged Facts' new report, Food Flavors and Ingredients Outlook 2007, uses key industry research, along with interviews with leading food experts and culinary professionals, to highlight how today's emerging flavors and ingredients will affect tomorrow's food preferences at home, on the go, and in restaurants.
And, as part of an ongoing feature of this series, the report looks back at the trends we predicted would make it big in 2006, compare that to what happened, and how this will influence the food industry in 2007.
