T. Hasegawa has released its 2021 Food and Beverage Flavor Trends Report, which identifies the latest consumer tastes and predicts upcoming changes in what consumers will look for in packaged foods, beverages and even foodservice.
Overall food and beverage trends for 2021 include:
- Rise in dessert-inspired dairy products (consumer interest in spicier ingredients with healthy reputations like turmeric and cinnamon, to elevate the flavor profile of dairy products as a treat or dessert).
- Large increase in non-dairy ingredients (1,086% increase in non-dairy ingredient claim menu incidence)
- New coffee flavors (turmeric, white chocolate, roasted coconut, raspberry, salted caramel)
