The big stories
Ingredients continue to play an important role in consumers' perception of whether or not a product is healthy. Plant proteins and healthy fats are standing out as healthy ingredients, as are ingredients that fit consumers' personalized definition of ""clean.""
In the next two years
Prioritize ingredients that can help consumers age well, inside and out. Look at areas of health important to people of all ages. These solutions will come in various forms, including ingredients that support the microbiome, as well as healing botanicals that offer consumers functional, yet natural, benefits.
In five years and beyond
New technologies, including cellular agriculture, synthetic biology, and more sophisticated genetic editing techniques, are rapidly advancing. These technologies have great potential to disrupt the food industry by creating new foods and ingredients without depending on nature.
