Dinner from jellyfish: what will be the food in the future?

Years go by, but nothing changes. In 150 years we will eat food in the form of stickers and tablets, or we will receive it intravenously. In any case, scientists say so. Dinner from jellyfish with milk from algae and bread from insect protein can become the norm, while buyers can pick up sets of "tube meat" in specialized supermarkets or receive them along with delivery drone.

What will we eat in the future

Report prepared by order of Sainsbury’s,The second largest supermarket in the UK, with the participation of futurologists and plant scientists, says that we will eat and how food will be produced in 2025, 2050 and 2169.

It states that advances intechnology and artificial intelligence will allow you to personalize your diet and allow consumers to consume the nutrients and vitamins that they need, through a plaster or pill, or in fortified foods.

In future menus, there will inevitably be less meat anddairy products. In the short term, it is predicted that a quarter of Britons will become vegetarians by 2025 (compared to every eighth today) and half - flexitarians (compared to every fifth today), that is, those who sometimes still eat meat. The market for "alternative proteins" will increase by 25%, and according to forecasts, milk from algae will be the next vegetable-based milk, which will replace the nut versions.

After 30 years, consumers who are difficult to weanfrom the main products of cod, salmon, haddock, tuna and shrimp, can enjoy less popular ocean gifts: jellyfish. Usually jellyfish are considered as an unpleasant source of food, but the growing interest on the part of scientists and cooks makes it revise. The spread of jellyfish in connection with the warming oceans and a decrease in the number of their natural predators will lead to the fact that they can be found in the form of chips or as part of ready-made dishes.

Insects will also become a popular food. Buyers will stock up on cricket flour and grasshopper paste. Nearly two thirds of our food from four crops — wheat, corn, rice, and soy — will be replaced by less popular foods such as moringa, kedondong, and bambara peanuts.
