Sugar became the enemy, processed food was the work of the devil and everyone seemed to be carrying a flask or fancy water bottle. So what can we look forward to in 2017?

It used to be that the only time we encountered seaweed was when it wrapped itself around our legs on a beach holiday.

Next year we could all be eating it for dinner. Already familiar as a salad or deep-fried as part of a Chinese takeaway, the market is expanding with seaweed tipped to become as big as kale.

Organic seaweed spaghetti from The Cornish Seaweed Company is sold in Tesco for £4.50 and, for the health conscious, could become a staple.

Seaweed crisps are available as an alternative to the fattier varieties and seaweed granules and flakes offer a healthier way of flavouring food than salt.

Low in calories, vegan and high in calcium and iron, seaweed is expected to be 2017’s most popular superfood.
