Berries will continue to play a strong role in flavor development across restaurant menus. As functional ingredients also continue to grow across in popularity, a wider opportunity to tout the health benefits of berries opens. With some medical researchers claiming that one cup of berries provides all of the disease-fighting antioxidants needed in a single day, expect to see more exotic and innovative flavor combinations in the near future.
