The years go by, but nothing changes. After 150 years, we will eat food in the form of stickers and tablets, or will receive it intravenously. In any case, scientists say. Dinner of jellyfish with milk, seaweed and bread protein from insects could become the norm, while buyers will be able to pick up kits with “meat from a test tube” in specialized supermarkets or get them with drone delivery.
What we have in the future
The report, commissioned by Sainsbury’s, the second largest supermarket in the UK, with the participation of futurists and scientists-plant breeders, says that we will have and how they will produce food in 2025, 2050, and 2169.
It says that advances in technology and artificial intelligence will allow you to personalize diet and to give consumers the opportunity to consume those nutrients and vitamins that they need, through a patch or a pill or in enriched foods.
According to the presenters, many of us — obsessed with the welfare of animals, health problems and the environment put the planet in the first place, making a shopping list. They note that the current foods are not sustainable for a growing world population, which is predicted to increase to 9 billion in 30 years and to 11 billion in the next 150 years.
Sainsbury’s predicts that by the year 2169, it will be possible to store details about their own nutrition and health in the microchip embedded under the skin to prevent the supermarket. In turn, he can ride a drone and buy food and drinks based on your scheduled for the coming days events.
In future a menu will be inevitably less meat and dairy products. In the short term, it is projected that a quarter of Britons will be vegetarians by the year 2025 (compared with every eighth tonight), and half — flexitarianism (compared to one in five today), that is, those who sometimes eat meat. The market for “alternative protein” is increased by 25%, and projected milk from algae will be the next milk is plant-based, which will replace the walnut version.
30 years from consumers who find it difficult to wean myself off of main products of cod, salmon, haddock, tuna and shrimp, can enjoy less popular gifts of the ocean: jellyfish. Usually, jellyfish are considered as an unpleasant source of food, but the growing interest of scientists and chefs makes you reconsider it. The proliferation of jellyfish in connection with the warming of the oceans and decreasing the number of their natural predators will lead to the fact that it can be found in the form of chips or in ready meals.
Insects , too, will become a popular food. Buyers will stock up on flour made from crickets and pasta with grasshoppers. Almost two-thirds of our food, obtained from four cultures — wheat, corn, rice and soybeans — will be replaced by the less popular products such as Moringa, kedondong and peanuts Bambara.
For many decades, diets have been simplified, with the result that we have witnessed a reduction in the quantity of certain ingredients. However, we will gradually return to a varied diet, including the diet of the ancient God-forgotten culture.
