Expect a new wave of plant-based pasta, sweet and savory pasta, canned fish, naturally sweet dates, and more. Yaupon is a holly tree that produces caffeine and is found throughout the southeastern United States. Its leaves can be used to make herbal tea, a practice that American Indians have been practicing for decades. Yaupon's Latin name, Ilex vomitoria, is probably due to its inclusion in a ritual drink called black drink that was used to induce vomiting.
Other parts of the plant, such as berries, can cause nausea, but tea made from the leaves is safe if consumed in moderation. The list was compiled by the company's Trends Council, a group of more than 50 Whole Foods Market employees, including local collectors, regional and global shoppers, and culinary experts. The council based its predictions on decades of experience in both product sourcing and consumer preferences. They also participated in workshops with new and existing brands to help guide their report.
Non-animal milk has become increasingly popular in recent years, but what about the by-products of its production? According to Whole Foods, brands have been experimenting with ways to recycle alternative by-products to dairy products, such as the pulp of oats, soybeans and almonds. These companies are creating new products for bakers, such as flours, baking mixes and ready-to-eat candies. While our love for dates is not a recent discovery, the fruit is set to have a major revival next year. Consumers should anticipate its use as a sweetener, in the form of pastes and syrups, as well as in ketchup and oatmeal from one day to the next.
If you've been feeling really nostalgic lately, you're not alone. According to a consumer study, 73 percent of American consumers enjoy things that remind them of the past. Next year, new versions of macaroni and cheese, pizza sandwiches, classic old-school cereals and other favorites from the past will be released.

It's no secret that avocado oil has had a good time, but that's a trend that Whole Foods believes will continue next year. Dates have been around for thousands of years, but Whole Foods considers the fruit to be trendy as an alternative natural sweetener. We have seen that kombucha has had its time and next year, Yaupon will be similarly successful, according to the Whole Foods trend forecast.
Speaking of climate awareness, Whole Foods predicts that a growing number of food and beverage brands will work to limit their impact on the environment. Whole Foods also hopes that brands will refine their pet food recipes to make them even more delicious. In addition, all Whole Foods Market pet foods and supplements must meet the company's industry-leading ingredient quality standards, facilitating pet well-being across the country. This trend will contribute to improving the living environment of chickens and the quality of the chicken purchased by food buyers, a goal supported by the new initiative of the World Alliance for Animals, the Better Chicken Project.
Since natural resources and food supplies are running out every second, it's not wise to waste food. .
