Current Food Trends
We are getting healthier! Over the past few decades, the organic food and farming industries have seen some serious growth. Eating organic food means you are consuming fewer commercial pesticides, many of which have been linked to numerous ailments ranging from asthma to cancer. In the period from 1997 to 2011, the amount of certified organic cropland grew from half a million acres to nearly 5.4 million acres, according to the USDA.
Vegan and Vegetarian continues to gain popularity. From 2014 to 2017, the Untied States saw a 600% increase in the number of people who identified as vegan. However, the rise of veganism and vegetarianism has been going on for quite a while.
Adult activity has increased. According to a report from Bentley College in Massachusetts, just 24 percent of the adult population in 1960 claimed to exercise on a regular basis. Today’s society is much more active. The Pew Research Center data shows that today 38 percent or people claim to exercise a few times each week while 15 percent of Americans exercise every day. I would guess that those percentages are even higher in our beautiful valley. Idahoans are known for their love of outdoor recreation and sports.
