Globalization is one of the most powerful forces in the modern world. Thanks to the Internet and the ease of transportation, people all around the world are more interconnected than ever. With this comes an exchange of cultures, including language, behaviors, beliefs, and of course… food!
So, how does this affect food trends in the USA?
According to Datassential (a company that analyzes national food trends), the overarching concept of “ethnic food” is becoming obsolete. Foods once considered “exotic” or “foreign” are becoming less intimidating as consumers are introduced to more and more different types of cuisines and expand their tastes.
It is not surprising, then, that one of the hottest trends in the National Restaurant Association’s 2016 Culinary Forecast is ethnic condiments. Consumers opened their minds (and mouths) and found sriracha sauce, which skyrocketed in popularity and became a common sauce in restaurants and households alike. Now they’re looking for more. One of the biggest contenders for the next sriracha is gochujang, which Wing Nien is developing as we speak!
Wing Nien is still working on this sauce, trying to ensure that it’s the best that it can be. However, we will soon be offering samples to any of our readers who are willing to provide us with feedback. If you’re interested in trying some of our delicious sauces, keep an eye out for an announcement soon.
