Heme (the greek word for blood) is a key part of the newest food trend. A meatless hamburger patty that actually bleeds like raw meat. This plant based patty looks, feels, and tastes like real meat. This trend is engineered not by a chef, but by a scientist. This controversial meat has not yet hit the market due to issues with the FDA.

Turmeric is added to drinks like milk and water, and has become super trending in 2018. Many people drink it for its medicinal agents. It has curcumin in it, which is a strong antioxidant and anti inflammatory. What people don’t know is that it only contains 3% of curcumin which has virtually no effect, but sometimes ignorance is bliss and it’s fun to go along with the trends.
