Are you one of the many people who found comfort in home baking during the pandemic?
A recent online survey by Packaged Facts found 45% of consumers surveyed would call themselves “avid bakers.” And 84% of respondents reported that they baked at home with some frequency over the past year.
A combination of factors – having more time at home, a desire for homemade foods, and an interest in healthy trends (keto, grain-free, and paleo diets) – caused sales of baking-related products to grow by nearly 25% last year. And industry experts expect the home baking trend is here to stay.
Julie Ohana, a culinary art therapist, told CNBC that baking offers us a soothing way to cope with challenging times. “The process helps aid the baker, and the finished product helps comfort the person or people receiving the delicious outcome,” she explained.
When things seem to be whirling out of control in the outside world, baking also helps give us a satisfying feeling of control over something. Experts say baking is a mindful activity that can be calming to the nerves and the spirit.
