Food Innovations that Changed the World

Posted by

With every passing year, new life-changing innovations take place which keeps making our life simple and trouble-free. Innovation happens in every step of human life, and food is not far from it. So here are top 5 food innovations in the last five years that will always be remembered by our taste buds for their out of the box taste and looks!

  1. Tomato Sushi

The words “livable” and “vegetarian” are apparently the least things on your mind when you’re enjoying sushi, But currently, we’re overfishing many of the world’s remaining fisheries.

With that in sense, Chef James Corwell arranged about making a delicious flipside to a famous fish that would match picky palettes.

Using sous vide ways to taste, he invented a palatable, tomato-based substitute for tuna that should keep us in the sushi game strong.

2. Cronuts

A Cronut is a croissant-doughnut pastry created by New York City pastry chef Dominique Ansel of Dominique Ansel Bakery. The pastry is similar to a doughnut and is created from croissant-like dough which is stuffed with flavored cream and deep-fried in grapeseed oil. A trademark was certified for the name “cronut” at the United States Patent and Trademark Office. After the release of the Cronut, similar products have sprung up all over the world.

3. Banana Flour

Here is another prime example of a young innovator taking action to put the world’s waste to use. In this scenario, it’s the millions of tons of bananas that has damaged before ever reaching customers. Possibly, some Swedish grad students had witnessed enough gluten-free belly-aching and took a decision to make a flour alternate made of bananas. Banana chapatis anyone?

4.  Glitter Latte

Clearly not all that glitters is gold. It can now very well be your morning cup of coffee.  This glittering latte was popularized by a cafe in Mumbai and broke the internet.  If you are curious, the glitter is absolutely edible. It doesn’t really have a taste of it’s own, but you’re sure to get a glittery lip.

5. Stir fried Ice-cream

Contrary to what the name the name suggests, it is not stir fried on a flame with oil, but on a cold ice-pan. Stir-fried ice cream also is known as Thai rolled ice cream is a handmade ice cream dessert formed with milk poured on an iced grill, mixed with fruit or various ingredients on the ice-pan. It reached worldwide in 2015 from internet viral videos.

6.   BOX8’s Fusion Box
