The 15 #foodporn Instagram Accounts You Need To Follow

No matter how many hashtags we use, our appetite for sharing our food with total strangers through Instagram is far from sated. According to Photoworld’s recently released interactive map highlighting the popularity of foods across the world, we share over 100,000 snaps of food a week. And our most photo-worthy foods are #burgers, #pizza and #sushi.

It’s an oddity to think that it is now as acceptable to pull your phone out for a picture of the dinner table as it is to keep your elbows off of it. In fact, it’s become such a social norm that there have been full intensive studies into the benefits of playing photographer with your food and the affects it has on your appetite.

The University of Minnesota found that the ritual of Instagramming your food pre-scoff can make it taste better thanks to and increased involvement in your nosh and the delay between ritual and consumption. Meanwhile, Brigham University found that trawling through #instafood posts can help you lose weight as you can cause sensory boredom which kills your cravings.  

So with that in mind, check out our gallery above for the accounts that post the best pictures of the three most popular foods on Instagram.
