Food Trends That Will Reign Supreme in 2021

This year, more than ever, there are changes taking place in our daily lives and even more so in our health. We will not talk about diet trends for 2021 but rather food trends.

2021 Food trends were strongly influenced by behavioral and societal changes that have emerged since the beginning of the pandemic

The Mighty Chickpea ( and other legumes)

You can chickpea anything. Yep, the time has come to think beyond hummus and falafel, and even chickpea pasta. Rich in fiber and plant-based protein, chickpeas are the new cauliflower — popping up in products like chickpea tofu, chickpea flour and even chickpea cereal.

If this trend is for now too much avant-gardist for you, you still have your favorite healthy ILIOS legumes.

More Snacking

Healthy snacking will also become even bigger in 2021. It has been a trend for the past few years. Given so many of us are working from home recently, we’re snacking a lot more than we used to. Plus, we are all in need of added energy throughout the day.

What's in my ILIOS range?

Granola is one of the favorite healthy food for frequent snacking!

Comfort Food, But Make it Healthy

“For 2021 the trends will go towards comfort and simplicity. This is due to the pandemic we will see a return to meals that focus on comfort, experts say.

There will likely be a greater focus on stew and curry. Curry can offer so much to the diner. It’s interesting, exciting, and comfortable and accessible. This is just an example so you can let your imagination run free and nostalgic.

What's in my ILIOS range?

When cooking your stew and curry, remember to use one of the delicious, healthy and organic broths!

More fermenting, preserving, and canning

Fermentation is becoming really big again, same with canning and preserving. Jarred, canned, preserved, pickled and fermented will be used as much as it could be especially for Chefs. It indeed allow them to still be able to support their farms.

What's in my ILIOS range?

A variety of canned and jarred fermented foods that can be stored for months.


The last and not the least. “2021 is the year of kindness. Without perspective and acts of kindness, we won’t move forward as an industry. No longer is it appropriate and enough to be the “only one in the room.” If you can connect someone to a publication, a brand opportunity etc., that might be the very thing that helps a business or a person survive.” — Paola Velez, pastry chef of La Bodega, Compass Rose, and Maydan in Washington, DC.
