MUSHROOMS will be the superfood fad of 2023, trendspotters are predicting.
Sales are expected to rocket as the health-conscious switch in their droves to a fungus-based diet.
Supplements, extracts and drinks made from mushrooms are also forecast to boom in popularity.
The prediction comes from health shop chain Holland & Barrett in a report identifying next year’s wellness trends.
Mushrooms top the list because of the growing popularity of vegan diets in which they are a crucial meat substitute.
Duckweed, the small floating plant which forms a carpet across ponds and water butts, is also touted as a future superfood.
It is said to be full of proteins, vitamins and nutrients and apparently tastes like a nutty spinach.
Sleep syncing — tracking your rest and following a sleep schedule with the help of technology — is also predicted to become the wellness trend of the year.
Sea moss, collagen and CBD were the biggest fads this year.
