There are several trends in food diets that experts expect to see in 2019, and the industry is looking for new tastes from new geographies, including the Pacific and South America. The industry tries these flavors to circulate healthy diets and attract consumers to unusual types of foods and thus increase their sales and profits.
Of new foods entering public consumption in 2019, dried shrimp and new exotic fruits from Latin America such as new types of guava and a fruit called Dragonfoot. The shift seems to be mainly about consuming more vegetables and some vegetable fats such as coconut oil and keeping away from the increased consumption of red meat.
For the first time, environmental factors are moving towards new foods. Environmental experts are warning that expanding access to farmland and grazing areas for livestock meat is almost as high as it is for farm crops such as wheat and maize.
Plant trends are expanding to introduce new varieties with unprecedented names such as the Aquapapa term, which is called hummus water, which is added to a Russian cake base called Pavlova. New etiquette rules are also introduced when dining with other people, including not using a mobile phone while eating.
The water, where the chickpea is soaked for several hours, is used in many new vegetarian meals, making it free of fat and vegetable cocktail. The term Aquafaba enters the English language for the first time this year.
The industry also notes the necessity of disposing of disposable plastic containers for their danger to the marine environment. Instead of plastic bags or plastic sheeting used by the industry, New Year's food will be damaged in so-called "bee leaves", natural cotton sheets coated with beeswax, which are suitable for washing, reuse, and then environmentally recycled at the end of their use. Companies producing this type of paper are experiencing a surge in sales of up to 60% monthly increase. Sales of plastic bags and similar products are declining at a large rate. Networks of organic plant tissues are also used that can be recycled in vegetable and fruit packaging instead of plastic.
Cannabis oil is used in many beverages and foods for its health benefits. It is used in coffee-like beverages but without its negative effects. These new drinks have been introduced into supermarkets in Britain in recent months.
Tea will also be part of Indian meal preparation and Netflix will start offering Indian food preparation programs next spring based on Indian tea. An Indian tea house in London is also opening this year as Darjeeling Express.
One of the hallmarks of the war on plastics is also the drive to get rid of cold drinks liqueurs, which Britain alone consumes about 8.5 billion suckers a year. A natural alternative is being sought from wheat and bamboo. London's aristocratic Fortunum & Mason has created a bag with a silver-plated sucker for personal use, sold for £ 15 ($ 20).
Water also enters the field of change in the New Year, where new mineral flavors such as hibiscus and coconut are introduced to bottled water. A British supermarket called Waitrose said the sales of these types of water had increased by 172 per cent in the last year and that the increase was expected to continue. Mineral water bottling companies intend to increase their appetites to include a variety of fruit and spice sources to offer different packages of water with a variety of flavors.
A new phenomenon that began in London this year is the call to art exhibitions accompanied by an innovative meal by an artist chef. There are many exhibitions such as Earth in East London and Katele Yard in Cambridge, which developed the idea of restaurants or cafes attached to art galleries. In the Scottish city of Dandy, Victoria & Albert opened the Tata restaurant and cafe on the top floor of the building. In Oxford there is a modern-style restaurant at the top of the gallery attached to the city's business center.
The restaurants are divided into mobile phones, which provide the right lighting and decorations to attract customers to pick up the "silvi", while other restaurants insist on providing a climate suitable for quiet talk without interrupting loud calls or taking pictures. Restaurants in London, such as Grusho and Ned, prevent mobile phones from being used and insist on keeping them until the end of their meals. These restaurants are considered to be composed of quiet areas with no annoying phones.
One of the plants that finally arrived at the European tables is a tropical fruit called Jack Fruit. The plant comes from Asian plants resembling a melon plant, each weighing about 30 kilograms. The plant can be purchased in canned foods from the supermarket markets and these stores are offered in different consumer formulas such as Indian meals, pizza and vegetarian burgers. It is one of the best alternatives to meat compared to taste and coarse texture.
At high-end supermarkets, bitter orange juice from East Asia appears to resemble orange juice and lemon juice, but from an Asian plant called Clamansi. It is served in Asian restaurants in a juice or cocktail formula.
One of the health-oriented approaches is to try to identify snacks called Snacks and contain 100 calories or more, up to two meals a day at a maximum. Some supermarkets saw a 26% increase in snacks sales of less than 100 calories. Fruits and vegetables replace potato slices and biscuits in student bags in the new year.
In 2019, the balance of ethnic meals such as chicken in the African style of Yasa, which uses lemon, onion and spices in the preparation of poultry, and the meals of "Zaroo Soba" for Chinese noodles eaten cold. As the popularity of vegetarian meals increases, more Europeans discover the Eastern falafel meal that Arabs should record as an Egyptian and Shamite meal, not Israeli, as is the case with some types of cheeses registered in the names of the regions and countries where they are produced.
By mentioning cheese, there are new varieties reaching dairy-free markets. It is suitable for large sections of vegetarians who also refrain from eating milk and milk products. More recently, a contestant at a British food festival won the first prize for the types of milk-free cheese she produces. Types of cheese will reach specialty supermarkets starting in 2019.
According to specialized publications, in the new year, women are trying to confirm their positions in the area of food preparation and restoration of male kitchens. The proportion of women to men in professional kitchens is currently one in four cooks. A British chef, Claire Smith, celebrated her last year with two Michelin stars. Another chef, Roberta Mall, has been named the most talented chef among young people in recent months.

> The Chinese calendar indicates that the elements affecting the calendar of 2019 are minerals and fire, so the appropriate foods that bring health and good luck, according to this calendar, are those that acquire red and white colors. These foods are added to the New Year's meals and are not limited to meals.

The proposed meals for the new year include tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. The calendar also favors Italian Bolognese spaghetti, Napolitana pizza, stuffed eggplant and Thai red curry.
