Our traditional way of eating is changing. We are busier than ever, so we often eat on the go or get deliveries of take away. It is therefore not surprising that one of the very big food trends is snacking - and it may be worth thinking in the professional kitchen in 2022.

With our busy everyday life, we are slowly waving goodbye to the three classic main meals. Instead, we eat a lot of small meals during the day.
But snacking is about more than just getting full quickly during the day. It’s about short, much-needed breaks, which we fill out with the enjoyment of small food experiences. And preferably healthy and nutritious snacks that our body can work with for the rest of the day.
