Tasty and Trendy

Whole Foods Market isn't exactly known as a cheap place to fill your shopping cart (though we've found some surprisingly inexpensive buys in the past). But what's beyond debate: It's always at the forefront of our changing grocery habits, catering to special diets and growing demands for food that is grown in ways that doesn't hurt the environment. If you haven't peeked in lately, here's a primer on what's hot right now.

Prices and availability were researched in early February and are subject to change.

Ocean's Halo No Soy Sauce

Price: $4.49
Ubiquitous though it may be, soy sauce has two big strikes against it: Plenty of people are allergic to soy, and it's packed with sodium, making it a no-go for folks on a low-salt diet. Ocean's Halo subs in ingredients including organic kelp and mushrooms in place of wheat and soybeans. The resulting "no soy" sauce is also gluten-free.
