These artisan ingredients range from maple sap sugar alternatives to spreadable vino jams that are infused with an alcoholic beverage blend. In recent years, millennial consumers have become more nutrition-focused than ever before, making alternative sweeteners, flavored salts and exotic spices popular among foodies with refined tastes.

In addition to floral and saffron-infused table salts, other artisan ingredients that satisfy the savory palette include olive oil butters, potato-crafted confections and even yogurts that are vegetable and herb-flavored rather than traditionally fruity.

For those with a serious sweet tooth, peanut butter cup spreads and chocolate hummus products fill every occasion with at least a bit of chocolate. Other favorites include gourmet pumpkin seeds -- suitable for sweet an savory recipes -- along with superfood whey, hemp and lucuma powders that give morning smoothies and cereals that extra heath kick.
