Natural Products Expo West, the world’s largest natural products trade show, recently took place in Anaheim, California. Thousands of industry professionals gathered at the Anaheim Convention Center, ranging from vendors making their debut to industry veterans like Follow Your Heart displaying their newest products and journalists looking to scope out the next big thing. Just like last year at Expo East, it seems like one of the largest overarching trends at Expo West was plant-based food.
Just less than ten years ago, the vegan food world left much to be desired, with disappointing veggie burgers and bland, flavorless tofu acting as the major representative of a greater movement. Luckily, plant-based food is now bigger than ever and companies are coming up with new, innovative products that will make even meat-eaters drool. While there are far too many new products to highlight in just one article, here are ten new products that we are most excited to try.
7. Hail Merry 2-Count Cups
A healthy snack that tastes like dessert? Yes, please. Hail Merry is famous for its egg-free macaroons and decadent tarts, but now you can take those tarts on-the-go with their line of 2-Count Coconut Cups, which, by the way, also won an award for best new snack. We're pretty pumped about having more options for healthy vegan treats.
