2023 Health & Wellness Trends

From eNewsletter 11/23/2022

DID YOU KNOW a recent survey found that 75% of Americans believe their health and wellness products should be tax-free? Healthy groceries and dietary supplements were at the top of the wish list. The respondents said that if they treat their health as an “investment” that will gain value over time, there should be a tax benefit much like if you were putting money into a retirement account. We could not agree more. At the very least, all health and wellness products should be covered for those with Health Savings Accounts (HSA). Please contact your congressmen and congresswomen to voice your opinion.

2023 Health & Wellness Trends

Steve: Here is what may be popular, or even more popular than usual, in 2023. Yaupon A holly bush found in the southeastern United States and claimed to be North America’s only known native caffeinated plant, Yaupon has a mild, earthy flavor and can be brewed it into herbal tea or used in other functional beverages. It is related to the beverage you know well...Yerba Mate. Upcycling By upcycling by-products such as oat, soy and almond pulp, brands are creating new products for the modern baker, such as alternative flours and baking mixes. Pet Supplements Pet owners are much more aware that food usually will not cut it for their pets. Targeted, high quality pet supplements are a necessity to keep their pets happy, and depending upon the supplement, even more obedient :) Produce Pasta Expect a slew of plant-based pasta alternatives with ingredients such as spaghetti squash, hearts of palm, and green bananas. Dates "Nature’s candy" are having a major renaissance as a sweetener, not only for at-home bakers, but also in the form of pastes and syrups. Bone and Joint Health Supplements Collagen, glucosamine and chondroitin, among others will continue to emerge as we stray father away from harmful pain management therapies. Poultry Poultry will continue to become more pasture-raised, organic, and restorative than ever before. Retro Products Retro products are being reinvented with consideration for the wellness-conscious customer, creating the ultimate mash-up of throwback indulgences with better ingredients and special diets in mind. Kelp As kelp and other forms of seaweed are starting to make their mark worldwide to help sustain the food supply, you will see kelp in all kinds of foods from pasta to sauces. Avocado Oil Will finally begin to replace more inflammatory vegetable oils in snacks, mayonnaise, and ready-to-eat meals. Immune and Sleep Supplements With ever-present pathogens, year-round immune support is a must. And with more demands on our daily lives, sleep is at a premium. But many are eschewing sleep medication because of their deleterious side effects. Sleep supplements fill the gaps.
