Every other week, the health-crazed world presents us with a brand new — and often strange — list of the latest superfoods that would send you scrambling to the stores. That’s not to say these buzzy foods don’t have their merits, but it can be hard to not be jaded by the sheer speed at which they come and go. However, if you’re somehow bored of the current offering, we’ve got a brand new list of superfood trends you can play around with.
Some on the list may strike you as weird, but you’ll need bragging rights in the competitive world of superfood experimentation. Kale — which, by the way, is so 2016 — just won’t cut it anymore. Açaí, chia, and matcha now join the growing list of mainstream superfoods too.
Packed with powerful nutritional benefits and exotic tastes, this list of superfood trends for 2017 would take a bit of getting used to, but we promise their benefits are enormous. Some unexpected entries this year include watermelon seeds (yes, it has come to that), tiger nuts (not actually a nut), and red algae. Nut oils replace nuts as the go-to source of good fats, and açaí makes way for a new berry contender in the market.
Read on to find out more about the 2017 superfood trends you need to get on now.
