Functional Ingredients-Editor Showcase Highlights, NYC
Functional ingredients, transparency where the products were sourced/made, food safety, and better snacks-convenience foods, portion control and beneficial drinks/supplements...just some of the highlights in a focused Editor Showcase on Health and Nutrition.
Heavy carbs may be out...but better whole grain offerings and non-GMO products are increasingly a part of just about everyone's diet.
|Wonder where white bread went? The American classic sandwich staple from Dave's Killer Bread is made from non-GMO wheat, is USDA Organic-in our opinion-the gold standard for healthy ingredients...and no junk like high fructose corn syrup, preservative, etc....plus use of whole grains for meaningful 10g fiber, and even 3g protein!|
|Mainstream companies are increasingly offering consumers more and more what they want- (better tasting breads) or don't want to eat (no artificial flavors/colors or high fructose corn syrup)...from Sara Lee-Artesano style bread-tad more softer texture-richer taste and thicker sliced- than white breads-with 3grams protein/100 calorie per slice.|
|April is Grilled Cheese Month-All American bites-include these grilled pesto cheese tomato bites on Artesano Bread.|
|Moms' started!!! Among Friends baking mixes-mouth watering, kid approved cookies in cookie, brownie, cake and breakfast ready pancake, cornbread +waffle mixes...Gluten-Free, Non-GMO certified whole grain based treats -with real fiber in each bite via ingredients like Sorghum flour, and sweetened with primo Callebaut chocolate chips (Alec's Awesomely Fudgy Brownie Mix). #HomemadeWithoutTheHassle.|
|excited to see these-a new food direction from BOULDER CANYON...an alternative to starches-like rice...GRAIN FREE shredded vegetables similar texture and cooking properties-with more nutrients, fiber and less calories. WIN WIN. Since we are too lazy to use a food processor -these convenient products- that haven't hit the market yet-will be a bonus for those looking for healthy-tasty alternatives to high glycemic carbs.|
