WHAT ARE THE MOST POPULAR FOOD HASHTAGS ON INSTAGRAM IN 2021?

That was the question I asked myself while I was completing the ultimate driving Brisbane to Cairns road trip visiting the best stops for a few months and enjoying cooking of delicious healthy food along the way.

I was surprised some restaurants, food outlets and cafes I visited during my epic road trip were not using some of the most popular Instagram food hashtags to amplify and reach more followers.

Not even the top person leading the whole Australian nation has been immune to this obesity epidemic issue affecting both children and adults.

The scarier thing is that most of the unhealthy, highly processed food sold in supermarkets – such as Coles or Woolworths here in Australia – has become a “normal” choice for the non-educated or empowered consumer which counts for the majority of the national or global population.

What you can do > Add hashtags that promote your commitment to healthy food such as:

#nonprocessed
#zerosugar
#nofat
#nosalt
#nopreservatives
#madelocally
#freshproduce
#nomsg
#noartificialflavours
#noartificialcolours

“Add hashtags to your Instagram Stories to have chances of being displayed on the Instagram explore page using the hashtag sticker (you can only add one hashtag) or use the text tool (you can add up to 10 hashtags), you can even hide them by placing a sticker on top of them or use the colour tool to make the hashtags invisible but still findable” MAU.

FOOD TRENDS WILL AMPLIFY NEW HASHTAGS

1. ALTERNATIVE PROTEIN

By 2035, Europe and North America are expected to have reached the point of “peak meat,” and consumption of animal proteins will begin to decline, pushed by concerns about the environmental costs of growing all the animals eaten, how those animals are treated and the consequences for human health of eating so much conventional protein.

Alternative proteins are no longer a niche market and have become a mainstream phenomenon. Restaurants, cafes and fast-food chains (especially in developed countries) are already offering plant-based meats and milk options. By 2035, 22% of all the meat, seafood, eggs, and dairy consumed around the globe is very likely produced with an alternative protein.
