Eating habits of the future

Eating habits of the future

Are you a foodie? It doesn鈥檛 matter what your answer is, because irrespective of your answer, food is something essential in our day to day life.

 

Have you ever wondered what your food menu will be 30 to 40 years from now? We live in an evolving world, and every aspect of our life has been gradually changing. With food playing a major role, experts have created different tastes and flavours over the years. But with the population increasing, food experts have also been tweaking the composition of existing food and are looking for entirely different food sources.

 

Scientists predict that in 2050, there will be around 9.5 billion people to feed. What exactly will we eat when the population is rising and food is insufficient?

Food Menu of the Future

 

LAB GROWN MEAT

鏂板瀷浜洪犺倝

meat 01Scientists have made synthetic meat, grown in the lab. They have created a type of cultured meat which is also known as Vitro meat, artificial meat, clean meat, and alt-meat. This cell-cultured meat is made up of tissue taken from an animal and kept in a nutrient-rich liquid. Researchers consider it to be a viable food option in the future. It is sustainable, and a key alternative in providing protein without slaughtering animals. This slaughter-free meat also reduces agricultural emissions and is expected to be on our future menus, though scientists are still tweaking its taste, texture, and naturalness to match that of actual meat. Furthermore, they are designing it to be available at an affordable price.

INSECTS

meat 02Some food specialists believe that Insects will be our go-to option, as many are high in protein. Eating insects is not completely new, as many nations already practice entomophagy (the practice of eating insects). People in many countries, in fact, already consume cricket flour, larvae and beetles. Experts propose that consuming insects will not only solve the emerging food crisis but will also be one of the best alternatives for protein.

ALGAE

meat 03Both freshwater and marine algae contain calcium, protein, iron, vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants. Algae is very nutritious compared to other fruits and vegetables.

With population skyrocketing, food experts speculate that there won't be enough animal or vegetable protein to feed humans in the future. It might sound unpalatable, but scientists are tinkering with algae which might end up as part of the regular food menu in 2050.

TP 202005 FUTURE 01Customizing your own food based on shape, texture, and taste鈥撯揳 fascinating concept, with endless possibilities for creating personalized food of your choice. All you have to do is choose the shape, colour, texture, size, taste, and nutritional content, click 鈥減rint鈥, and you get your desired food. It seems like sci-fi, but it is completely real. Three-dimensional printed food has already been used since 2012, but in a minimalistic form. With 3D printers, you will be able to eat a personalized, nutritious meal, and create intricate food designs of your choice. This technique also helps in drastically reducing food wastage.

JELLY FISH

meat 04Recently, researchers have found that jellyfish could be a sustainable food source. They are low in calories and highly nutritious, containing vitamin B12, magnesium, and iron. Due to climate change, there is an increase in the number of jellyfish in the ocean. Food researchers believe that in the time ahead, jellyfish will make a nutritious and popular snack.

NUTRITIONAL PILL OR PATCH

meat 05Food pills or patches are bound to be used in the coming times. In the future, researchers might create a meal replacement pill containing all the essential nutrients.

 

DRINKS

妞嶇墿鍩洪ギ鏂

meat 06Future trends in health drinks include those that sync with certain lifestyles. For example, some drinks may incorporate meat as well as dairy products. On the other hand, 82% of consumers who are meat-eaters still consume plant-based drinks, and an increase in health awareness may lead to the production of healthier, plant-based products in the near future. Plant-based milks or creamers would include more almonds and soy, and coconut-based beverages may contain peanut, oat and flaxseeds. More attention will be given to the texture of the drink, with a formula of colour that creates nostalgia and flavour with global inspiration. For example, the foamy texture of a coffee drink would be of top priority to people.

Conclusion

 

There is a definite possibility of a food crisis in the future. Climatic conditions, with erratic rainfall, heat, and drought, are among the main dangers. This greatly threatens the food supply all over the world and will impact our food sources. Researchers are still exploring alternatives for potential food sources, and predict that a diet of insects, algae, jellyfish, and meat grown in a lab could be a viable solution.
