Whole Foods names top product trends for 2017
Purple Foods, wellness tonics and creative condiments among trends on tap for next year
Wellness tonics and purple foods are among the trends Whole Foods has announced to watch in 2017.
This year’s predictions came from Whole Foods Market’s experts and industry leaders who source items and lead trends across the retailer’s cheese, grocery, meat, seafood, prepared foods, produce and personal care departments, and spot trends for the retailer’s stores.
Whole Foods Market’s top 10 trends for 2017 include:
1. Coconut Everything
Move over coconut oil and coconut water—coconut flour tortillas, coconut sugar aminos and more unexpected coconut-based products are on the rise. Virtually every component is being used in new applications. The sap is turned into coconut sugar as an alternative to refined sweeteners; the oil is used in a growing list of natural beauty products; and the white flesh of the coconut is now in flours, tortillas, chips, ice creams, butters and more.
