Last weekend, I had the opportunity to attend Natural Products Expo West – the largest natural foods show in the world! I’ve been a fan of NurturMe dried organic baby food for awhile now, so I was delighted when I learned that the company is developing new flavors! Redwood Hill Farm’s Kefir is a cultured, probiotic beverage similar in taste and texture to a drinkable yogurt.
In fact, I couldn’t decide on my own whether I preferred Wallaby or Noosa, so I enlisted Chris and Troy to help me decide in an Australian Yogurt-Off!
I would love to try the Balance Water–anything that would make me feel calmer and more relaxed would be great! About MeI am a brand new mom in Los Angeles working to get healthy while making time to enjoy my kids' childhoods!
This past weekend I attended the Natural Products Expo West, one of the nation’s largest natural product conventions.
Last year, I reported that both Gluten Free and Non-GMO were very big trends at the 2013 Natural Products Expo. Major brands and start-ups are trying to integrate both of these hot trends into their products offering.  Non-GMO seemed to be a requirement to enter the conference hall this year, with Gluten-Free providing extra street cred.


Meat alternatives that simulated the look, mouth texture and flavor of real meat were hot this year.
The vendor who had the best marketing campaign at the show was Beyond Meat, who sampled their “chicken” strips and ground “beef.” They set up their booth to simulate a Taco Bell restaurant and made a call to action for Taco bell to carry meat alternatives. The ready to serve meal trend was big in the 70’s and 90’s, although the trend is re-emerging.
Nut Butters are emerging as a big trend this year, this is especially true with hazelnut spreads. The trend of hyper-local ingredients is driving consumer and restaurants to grow their own produce.
I met quite a few vendors who were showcasing sugar alternatives, such Suchero, or products with sugar alternatives whole organic cane sugar or beet sugar. Tom grew up in a cultural diverse neighborhood and a culturally diverse family, so he has learned to appreciate all types of food.
Brands are really responding to the needs of busy individuals who are looking for healthy options.
I would love to try the meat alternative and have a taste of the peanut alternative products. If you haven't been, this is the largest natural products convention in the country, full of interesting products, foods & suppliers. I was sorry to miss it this year (Grammie duty called) but I will definitely be there next year!!!
This blog post will highlight some of the top trends that I discovered by walking every inch of the conference and chatting with hundreds of vendors.


In 2014 Gluten-Free and Non-GMO were omnipresent at the conference, not just emerging trends.
Brands like Pilsbury, Stony Field Farms wrapped themselves around the non-GMO and Gluten-Free labels,  as if it was their idea the whole time. Some of the milk products were being marketed as health beverages and others as milk alternatives. Coconut oil is the biggest standout, it was touted as  an elixir for anything that ails you. Some  trends were pretty obvious, others were noticeable only by attending the conventions year after year. Most of these products used course plant based ingredients to simulate the texture of muscle meat. The major types of milk were hazelnut, coconut (major trend on it’s own right), hemp and almond. Again just mix your favorite trend to these nut butters like non-GMO, gluten-free, additive free, organic.
For example, Non-GMO, coconut, milk alternative, fair trade, and sugar alternatives could be found in any of the coffee drinks including Marley’s Coffee, High Brew and So Delicious.
