Future 50 Cookbook

Delicious recipes that are better for you and the planet

The issue

Humans rely on a small range of foods. In fact, nearly 60% of the calories from plants in our entire diet are from rice, maize and wheat. This ‘dietary monotony’ is no good for our health or the health of the planet.

What can we do about it?

We may be getting enough calories, but these narrow diets don’t give us the vitamins and minerals we need. So, what are the foods of the future? At Knorr, we’ve identified 50 foods that are nutritious and have a lower impact on our planet than animal-based foods.

The Knorr Future 50 Foods Cookbook is packed full of delicious recipes. It’s crafted by world-leading chefs and nutritionists on a mission to help you eat more of these 50 foods.

Get inspired to make a difference, one dish at a time. Experiment with new ingredients like ube, pumpkin flowers and orange tomatoes, and make simple swaps from maize or white rice to fonio or spelt. It’s good for you, your taste buds and the planet. The more variety we eat, the more nutrients we get, and the more nutrients the land gets too.
