New year, new food. That’s the saying, right? If you’re wondering what tasty new products will be flooding shelves and restaurant menus in 2018, don’t worry, we got you. We’ve sipped and snacked our way through the latest innovations to determine what you’re going to want to get your hands on this year—and you won’t have to spend an arm and a leg at the local organic market to do so.
1. The Trend: Hydrogen Water
While we don’t agree on much in this tumultuous world of nutrition, we probably all can agree that we need to drink more water. And when regular old H2O gets boring, health buffs are turning to the supposed energy-charged benefits of Hydrogen Water.
Dr. Cody Cook, the owner of HTWO brand, claims that more than 16 gold medalist athletes are using the stuff, which purportedly helps boost energy, provides antioxidants, and quickly removes lactic acid. Admittedly, the science in this area is weak at best, but we love the clean crisp flavor (and it might have helped to make our hangover a little less intense). If you’re thirsty and feeling like the tap water isn’t cutting it, give this a go.
HTWO hydrogen water is available at Kroger, Natural Foods, and online for $2-3 per pack. HFactor hydrogen water is also available at Giant Food, local natural food markets, and online for $3 per pack.
