These 2018 food trends showcase a wide range of elements that indicate how the food, restaurant, and hospitality industries are innovating. With options ranging from health to pure indulgence, this list highlights some of the ways in which food is being celebrated and reinvented for the modern world.

23andMeis perhaps best known for providing a breakdown of a person's genetic composition, but the personal genomics and biotechnology company also introduced a new set of analytics that allows users to determine what foods will work best for them. This program aims to prioritize healthy eating in a more personal and tailored way. The program essentially shows users how their bodies can metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.

Also included on this list is an experimental dining experience created by Samsung and Michelin-starred restaurant Ya Ge. Designed to showcase the new Sunrise Gold Galaxy S9+, the dining experience utilized Samsung's VR, AR and AI technologies as a tool to make the meals fully immersive. Each of the courses featured on the tasting menu was paired with a piece of Samsung tech designed to match the delicious food.
