Animal Protein To ‘Take Back Seat’ In?Cooking?Next?Year


1 Minutes Read

Animal protein-based foods are set to ‘take a back seat’ next year, according to experts at industry outlet Good Food Australia.

Plant-based dishes are expected to gain momentum in 2018 as part of the top food trends emerging, says high-end restaurant chef Shaun Quade from Lume, Melbourne.

“While meat has long been the star of the plate, we’re going to see plants shine over the coming year,” the publication claims.


“I’m really excited to see people becoming more interested in plant-based cooking,” says Quade. 

“It’s not necessarily vegan food – although I’m seeing more and more diners request it – but menus where animal proteins take a back seat.”

Superfood trend

Among top food trends set to take over in the coming year, hemp has been branded as the ‘latest superfood’.

“Hemp is a great source of essential fatty acids and plant-based protein, most commonly as hemp seeds (known as hemp hearts), hemp oil and hemp powder, ” celebrity chef and nutritionist Zoe Bingley Pullin says.
