Mushrooms in the News: 01-04-2021

Mushrooms earned a spot on Kroger’s 2021 food trend predictions. The press release explains that, 

“2021 will be a breakout year for mushrooms. The versatile vegetable [has] antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and can easily elevate everyday recipes with its warm umami flavor. Consumers should expect to see mushrooms play a starring role in a variety of new products in 2021, including blended plant-based proteins, condiments, spices, seasonings and more.”

Kroger’s trends list was shared by consumer and trade publications, including Yahoo!, Progressive Grocer and The Packer.

Food & Wine spoke with chefs on what they’re predicting for 2021 trends. Spike Mendelsohn, co-founder and chef of Eat the Change, predicts mushrooms will be a trend “‘As planet-based and flexitarian diets become more popular and people seek out foods that are equally good for the environment and themselves […].’”
