The ever-shifting patterns of what people love to eat make exploring food trends for 2022 a thrilling prospect. If 2020 saw the rise of home delivery and 2021 brought a return to dining out, what might food trends for 2022 have in store for home cooking, popular ingredients, beloved beverages and beyond. Urban Farm Produce Addressing the issue of urban food deserts, growing ultra-urban farm produce as a food trend in 2022 will bring fresh foods to places where it’s needed the most. With options for local community gardens, kitchen crops and home-based hydroponics, there’s a world of novel growing methods to be explored — from rooftops to backyards to balconies. And every option provides critical access to healthy ingredients grown in responsible ways. Climate-Conscious Foods Sustainability will continue as an element of many food trends in 2022, just as it was a key food trend of 2021. The availability of ingredients farmed responsibly with lower impact growing methods will expand the movement in important ways. Leading the charge: grains and other crops grown with concern for soil health, creating an easier environment for continued cultivation. Increasing interest in plant-forward dining will also carry forward the idea of careful cuisine. And the explosion of non-meat protein alternatives continuing into next year will highlight a desire for mindful options among the many food trends of 2022. Island Flavors A splash of tropical sunshine will add some much-needed joy to our eating habits next year! Look for a fusion of traditional and island ingredients to create a food trend in 2022. A rise in popular picks such as pineapple and passionfruit, as well as more adventurous options like coconut curry and Caribbean spices, will help turn simple dishes into unique experiences. And beverage flavors taking a turn toward the floral and fruity will help make the new year an escape to paradise. Spicy Bakes Heating up traditional sweet bakes with chipotle, cayenne and other hot spices will set food trends in 2022 on fire! You’ll see heated flavor favorites like Mexican hot chocolate, mango habanero and chili raspberry popping up in the form of cakes, cookies and pies. It’s an earthy element that brings a sense of gourmet theater to all sorts of baked goods. Reducetarian Eating As noted by Cambridge University Press, it's well documented that excessive meat consumption, especially red and processed meats, has damaging effects on our health and environment. Limiting your consumption of animal-based foods is at the heart of the reducetarian movement. Rather than going fully vegan or vegetarian, this food trend for 2022 embraces thoughtful moderation. It’s a great transition for mindful diners working toward a more environmentally conscious way of eating.

Biotin is an essential B vitamin that is used to promote hair health and growth. Because biotin deficiency can lead to thinning hair, proponents say biotin supplements can help correct this problem, though it may be a few months to see results. Biotin is available in pill or tablet form. While biotin supplements may have benefits for some, there are also potential side effects that are worth considering before you start taking one. Using a biotin-containing hair product doesn't pose the same concerns, but claims they can thicken, strengthen, and add shine and volume to hair are not supported by science. This article discusses the possible benefits of biotin for your hair and health. It also covers the potential side effects that may come with biotin supplement use. Biotin Benefits Biotin is an essential vitamin—meaning that your body needs this micronutrient to function properly. The biotin you consume in foods helps your body turn the food you eat (protein, carbohydrates, and fat) into energy. Taking a biotin supplement is likely effective for treating biotin deficiency. However, some biotin supplements claim to have additional health benefits that are not supported by scientific evidence. Hair Growth A handful of research studies have shown that biotin supplementation may help stimulate hair regrowth in people who have a clinical biotin deficiency or alopecia (hair loss). In people with temporary hair loss, studies have shown that supplements containing biotin significantly improved hair growth after 90 days. That said, researchers also note that hair regrowth is often caused by many factors and may not be due to biotin supplementation at all.Furthermore, there is no evidence that biotin supplementation is beneficial for people who do not have an underlying condition causing their hair to thin. Other Benefits Other possible benefits of biotin include the treatment of: Brittle finger nails or toenails Diabetes Diabetic nerve pain Multiple sclerosis Note, however, that there is insufficient scientific evidence confirming if biotin can treat any of these conditions.

You may be compelled to consume chocolate, pretzels, Italian bread with butter, French fries, or macaroni and cheese without any control. Have you ever questioned your cravings for these or other particular foods? There may be more than one solution, and not all specialists will concur on it. There is no doubt that the brain plays a role in eating cravings; in fact, the hippocampus, caudate, and insula are thought to all be implicated. When we have a craving for a certain meal, these areas are stimulated. Interesting information regarding food desires has been found through research. For instance, dieting or restricted eating typically increases the likelihood that you will crave particular items, whereas fasting reduces the intensity of those acute cravings. In a study on the subject, it was discovered that while "fasting makes yearning, like hunger, reduce," "attempted restriction or deprivation of a particular food is related with an increase in craving for the unavailable food." If you notice one or more of your cravings on this list, it may be worthwhile to investigate and even try out the theory that food cravings are caused by nutritional inadequacies. Bread and/or pasta.
