Top 100 Food Trends in September

From Vegetable-Rich Dairy Treats to CBD-Infused Ice Teas

— September 28, 2019 — Lifestyle
Highlights from the September 2019 food round-up include a plethora of new and exciting flavor innovations, CBD-infused products and some enriching sustainable projects.

The cannabis industry has surely impacted this category. The new ingredient is tested in beverages — Present's CBD-infused sparkling water and Grüv's CBD teas, for instance, as well as in cooking as made evident with Leah Vanderveldt's CBD kitchen book that spotlights 50 wellness-inspired recipes. For consumers who prefer the curated hands-on aspect of the newly introduced ingredient, the September 2019 food category also calls attention to Dirt's Micro-Dosed High Dining experience.

A non-CBD related product, but one that is super exciting nonetheless, is Dropfruit. This is a peer-to-peer app that allows residents in Toronto to shop and sell homegrown fruits and veggies.
