What’s trend­ing?

BBC Good Food - - Update -

Shrubs

We’re not talk­ing gar­den­ing here, but one of this year’s hottest drinks trends. A shrub is a drink­ing vine­gar, usu­ally made by pre­serv­ing fruit syrup with vine­gar, and we’re see­ing new ones on the mar­ket, in­clud­ing Soupolo­gie’s Viva la Vine­gar range (£1.95, Sains­bury’s) and Non­such shrubs (£3.75, plan­e­tor­ganic.com).

Plas­tic-free tea

Af­ter many teabag man­u­fac­tur­ers hit the head­lines last year for us­ing polypro­pe­lene (a type of seal­ing plas­tic) in their teabags, sev­eral com­pa­nies, are now mak­ing the move to­wards plas­ticfree teabags. Clip­per Teas has just launched bags made from nat­u­ral, plant-based ma­te­ri­als. Some­one get the ket­tle on!

Ke­fir

As we con­tinue to ap­pre­ci­ate the im­por­tance of gut health, pro­bi­otic and fer­mented foods are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar.

Ke­fir is a cul­tured, fer­mented milk drink and it’s hit the main­stream, with new ke­fir prod­ucts on the mar­ket in­cud­ing ke­fir yo­gurts from Yeo Val­ley and The Col­lec­tive and drinks from Bio-ti­ful Dairy.

Pisco

Is South Amer­i­can brandy, pisco, the hot new drink for 2019? Ac­cord­ing to bar­tenders at last year’s Lon­don Cock­tail Week, there’s been a 30% rise in the num­ber of bars serv­ing it, and we reckon this is set to keep grow­ing.
