While it is still winter in the Northern Hemisphere, the Southern Hemisphere is in its summer season with people enjoying sunshine and warm weather. During the current summer season Australia is introducing and promoting new trends in gelato that will become popular in Europe and the United States.
These trends include interesting and innovative solutions that meet the needs of consumers’ growing demand for foods that fit into a healthier lifestyle. Consumers are searching for foods that are made from high-quality ingredients as well as products that will meet their dietary restrictions and preferences such as lactose-free and gluten-free ingredients to create gelato, sorbet, variegates, milkshakes and more.
Following the demand for ingredients that fit into a healthier lifestyle, superfoods are becoming more popular in the gelato world. Superfoods, such as coconut, pomegranate and cocoa, are naturally nutrient-rich. Incorporating superfoods into a sweet gelato treat can really set gelato apart from the norm. The amazing new mulberry gelato flavor fits into the superfoods ingredient trend. This mulberry gelato flavor has all of the positive attributes as a fresh mulberry – being juicy and refreshing while intense in color and high in antioxidants.
Spirulina is also becoming popular in the food world. Spirulina is an algae that is considered to be a complete food as it contains proteins full of essential amino acids and is rich in vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K. The nutrients in spirulina can be easily digested and absorbed. For gelato made with spirulina, the photosynthetic pigments of spirulina give the gelato a gorgeous pastel violet color that stands out in any gelato display case. Children of all ages will be drawn to this eye-catching and healthy gelato.
Finally, you found also a brand new and unique product line created from an assortment of grape juices. Grapes are an excellent source of antioxidants and fit into the healthy food trend. This new product line is characterized by what may be considered an unexpected flavor but the flavor is quite typically and traditionally Italian. In 2020 these will be the leading flavors in all gelato shops.
