Whether you’re a subscriber to Whole Foods or McDonald’s, it doesn’t matter- everyone in 2020 has heard of the word ‘superfood’. Well, get ready because the health world is hyping up and it’s about time you actually figure out all those trendy superfood names people through around.
So let’s start with fermented foods. That means foods that contain microorganisms like bacteria and yeast. According to a nutrition report by Pollock Communications and Today’s Dietitian, fermented foods are the number one superfood trend for 2020.
