Trendy Food Manufacturing

Written by Dilip Shaw

"Byrepparttar time a trendy food becomes mass produced, it is usually on its way out," says Dana Cowin, editor in chief of Food & Wine magazine. While it is true thatrepparttar 136846 culinary world leads in food trends,repparttar 136847 staying power of a trend can be best determined by its overall contributions to a society's culinary habit.

For instance, roasting - a popular classic cooking method - is making a strong comeback in Americans' food fare and hasrepparttar 136848 potential for much more than a passing fad. Roasting develops desirable flavors within a food product. In addition, it provides other benefits such as healthful cooking, convenience, and simplicity. The result is a cooking method that is likely to become more popular within our cooking culture.

Grilling is another cooking method that providesrepparttar 136849 same benefits. However, "Trends start and stop whether we think they should or not," says Cowin. One might have assumed thatrepparttar 136850 lowfat food trend would have stayed forever, but it has lost some of its initial steam. This may eventually happen torepparttar 136851 roasting and grilling trend as well.

Other trends inrepparttar 136852 food world include more regional ethnic foods. For instance, Italian food has been big for years, but now food magazines and cookbooks feature Umbrian, Tuscan, and Sicilian food. Food manufacturing companies are starting to jump on this bandwagon as well.
