The future is nearly upon us, believe it or not, which means human kind may be seeing all types of new developments from the science and research worlds, including advances in the food industry. You thought gum that consisted of a three-course meal was just a hoke from Willy Wonka, but the reality is a bit more interesting. We could see something along those lines within the next decade or so. If it makes money and people will buy it, then some industry will develop it. Here are 10 odd food developments we could see in the near future.
Three Course Meal Gum
Dave Hart, of the UKs Institute of Food Research, has been working on a formula for a three-course meal chewing gum. This little strip of gum could ensure people in third-world countries could eat and survive on almost nothing.
A report by the UN revealed that eating insects actually helps combat world hunger on numerous levels. People throughout Asia and Africa already consume various types of bugs, but more countries could be adapting to this near-endless food supply soon enough.
