Sample Edibles Pro Trends - Each Edibles PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online edibles articles, videos and images. Examples:

Carbohydrate Rebellion Fear of weight gain presents a new approach to carbs Implications - Carbohydrates have received a bad reputation in the midst of the health-conscious wave. This has prompted a shift toward bread and pasta replacements. Identifying a more calorie-friendly approach to mealtime staples, this pattern speaks to an accelerated need for health even in the face of familiar food forms.

Sliced Exoticism Innovative breads add novelty in a more familiar way Implications - Though exoticism and novelty are priorities for the modern foodie, the average consumer prefers the familia. As a way to satiate both the desire for comfort and the need for new, bread is being revamped in interesting ways. This provides a convergence of two opposing consumer needs to satisfy all.

Condensed Cuisine Main courses are given a portable overhaul to make dining more fun Implications - Offering meals in new and inventive forms, petite and portable versions of traditional dishes offer picky eaters, like children, a more engaging way to dine. Transforming messy meals into compact and easy-to-eat alternatives, these miniature cuisine adaptations offer the familiarity of home-cooked recipes in a more versatile and convenient form.

Social Good Snacking The charitable food market is expanded for an all-encompassing experience Implications - Charitable foods aren't a new innovation, but as consumers look for alternative ways to further immerse themselves in social good endeavors, the market is expanding with sustainable or charity-related snacks. This shift speaks to consumer preference for alternative product choices with meaning.

Reusable Packaging Offering a fun, eco alternative, brands focus on use after consumption Implications - A product design that is too disposable is being panned by consumers for the harsh effect it can have on the environment, which has resulted in packaging designed for a second use or purpose. This shift appeals to the eco-friendly consumer, but also those interested in novel product design and function.
