2024 Food Trends: What's Sizzling in the World of Flavour.

2024 is cooking up some amazing trends in the world of cuisine that we just have to share.

Banhoek Chilli Oil

We all love our go-to classics like pizza, but there's a whole new set of culinary trends taking the world by storm. From healthier choices to fiery new tastes and gourmet noodle experiments, the food landscape is more exciting than ever.

Getting healthier with every bite

2024 is all about feeling good and eating well. People aren't just looking for food that tantalises their taste buds; they want dishes that leave them feeling fantastic. That means keeping an eye out for meals that are low in fat and sugar, high in protein, and friendly on the calorie count. But that's not all; they're on a quest for foods that boost their mood and energy. It's not just about the flavours; it's about fuelling our bodies and minds. And speaking of wellness, plant-based diets are having their shining moment. As more of us consider our impact on the planet, plant-based dishes are sprouting up everywhere. We're talking about mouthwatering options like jackfruit tacos and mushroom "meat" alternatives that are changing the way we think about our meals. Healthy choices are in full swing for 2024!

Spicing things up

Ken Kinsey Quick, Founder and CEO of Banhoek Chilli Oil, shares “Chilli, that beloved ingredient known for its fiery kick, is stepping into the spotlight, with global chilli consumption surging by a whopping 23% in the last three years. This heat wave reflects an insatiable craving for the fiery kick and enticing flavour that chilli brings.” But we're not just talking about jalapeños and chilli peppers, we're diving into a world of Scorpion Peppers, Guajillo, and Hungarian Goathorn Peppers. These variants can be enjoyed fresh, whole, ground, or pickled, and they're igniting a flavour revolution in everything from sauces to oils.

And for those boldly venturing into the world of chilli oil, Banhoek Chilli Oil (BCO) has become a global favourite, thanks to its versatility, natural goodness and being a healthier condiment alternative.

Gourmet Noodles

Get ready to elevate your noodle game in 2024. Gourmet instant ramen options are stepping up their game, and they're giving the classics a run for their money – minus those pesky preservatives and MSG. Brands like Momofuku Tingly Chili Wavy Noodles and Lotus Foods Spicy Kimchi Rice Ramen Noodle Soup are adding a gourmet twist to the instant noodle scene. But it's not just about what you find on the store shelves. People are getting creative in their own kitchens, turning ordinary noodles into gourmet masterpieces. Whether it's adding eggs, protein, or infusing your creation with some Banhoek Chilli Oil, noodles have never been this exciting!

As we dive deeper into 2024, these food trends are lighting up the culinary world. Whether you're embracing healthier choices, exploring the spicy side of life, or turning your humble noodles into gourmet feasts, there's something for every palate. This year is all about not just eating but experiencing the stories, traditions, and excitement that come with each bite.
