More than half a year into 2020, we’ve all undeniably experienced A LOT. Much can be said to the health and wellness, as well as the food and beverage, industrial scenes.
If in the previous year we saw “boba everything” together with the rise of plant-based options, there’s surely a lot more to come for the Singaporean market for this year — including, but not limited to, the things in our list
1. Fruit and vegetable flours
More palatable-sounding fruit and vegetable flours are lined up to be the new flours of choice for health-conscious bakers. Some examples include:
- Banana flour: a good source of fiber and potassium;
- Cauliflower flour: high in fiber and gluten-free;
- Tiger nut flour: nut-free, grain-free, and gluten-free.
2. Black sugar
Black sugar is expected to break out from bubble tea and Asian desserts. As a matter of fact, one from several restaurants in Singapore already has started exploring the magic of black sugar. Expect to see more of this ingredient on the menus of modern restaurants.
Wondering what the fuss is about black sugar? It is generally a healthier and tastier alternative to white sugar. It also contains molasses, calcium, iron, and other minerals.
3. Alternative milk
Oat milk, almond milk, black sesame milk, pistachio milk… your options now seem to be endless! If you're looking for something creamy to perfectly match your coffee in the morning while trying to steer away from animal-sourced milk, these alternative milk in different varieties seem just right for you.
4. Nut butter
Similar to alternative kinds of milk, nut butter also holds the potential to come in different varieties. You might also want to be on the lookout for macadamia, chickpea, and watermelon seed butter.
Nut butter will essentially provide you with a chock-full of protein, fiber, and iron — your key to preparing nutritious snacks!
5. Healthy packet foods
Gone are the days we need to stay clear from packed foods with the notion that anything packaged and processed is made up of unhealthy ingredients for our bodies.
For this year, packets of pre-prepared foods are about to get a whole lot healthier. Thanks to both the rise of “woke” communities for healthy alternatives and advances in technology that allow healthy ingredients to be kept fresh without the presence of preservatives or artificial thickeners and stabilizers.
