Planet Friendlier Protein+ Buttery Spreads -Fancy Food Show

Tastes Better Too...
What we are thrilled about-MORE non-meat options-that are shelf stable -conveniently packaged and sustainably sourced-and YUMMY-responding to consumer demands for 'clean' protein sources that don't contribute to greenhouse gases...FYI worse than CO2 emissions , ozone damaging- the major cause=methane generating animals like cattle.

SafeCatch tuna co-founder Sean Wittenberg -sustainably caught-assures best tasting, hand cut- and safest tuna on the market-only tuna brand to test every fish for mercury-ie their Elite product has 4x less mercury on average than Wild Planet tuna does...according to...WOW
Delicious tasting-no additives or fillers-packed only in its natural oils, SafeCatch Elite Solid Wild Tuna Steak-made for Elite Athletes, Kids and Pregnant women-other products-Wild Albacore Tuna Salt Added and No Salt versions. Bonus-partner with Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program.

TONNINO Tuna Fillets- dolphin safe caught, 100% yellowfin -gourmet tuna fillets-available in olive oil, spiced up -in olive oil versions and in spring waterfall from Alimentos Prosalud-a Costa Rican based food processor company.





Featured in the New Product aisle-this  Jupiter Florida based Burst Active that specializes in encapsulated products  FYI made of seaweed extracts and inside the pearls-fish extracts and fish oils (the 411)...has paddlefish, sturgeon and salmon like caviars -that look like the real deal-in texture and close in taste-100% natural, non-GMO, and no preservatives-it's also rich in Omega 3s, vitamins and minerals. Interesting-and got a lot of interest at the show.... 
looks like the real deal too

Fancy Food Show-does not lack for amped up PB alternatives-but a fav= the Nuttzo Seven Nut & Seed Butter Smooth- (made in crunchy version, chocolate-and w/o peanut  too)...comes in super handy single serve packets that we travel with when we do endurance races-TSA friendly size!. USDA Organic, non-GMO certified, vegan-and bonus points- made by a Certified B Corporation and has a dedicated 501©3 Project Left Behind. Calorie wise-similar to PB 190calories/serving-delivering 7grams of tasty protein-and 650 ALA Omega 3s...no added sugar or oils. Texture wise-bit thinner than regular jar of processed commercial made PB---so it really easily spreads...and stirs up well. Made of organic all=hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, almonds, cashews, flat seeds and peanuts (that version)...
Fancy Food Show-also does not lack for savory-spiced nuts but there is a quality difference when its produced in small batches+hand roasted---as are Q's Nuts. This MA based company has beer pairing perfect  cashews, pecans, almonds and nuts available in sophisticated  combos like Key Lime Ginger or Banana Forster cashews,  Mexican Chocolate Pecans, and Cayenne Mango Almonds...notably size of each sample we inhaled-big and with chewy crunchy ultimate freshness-makes those airline giver outers-another food group...and not a better one either. And nuts-are naturally loaded with healthy fats, some protein, minerals and vitamins...


MELT Organic-USDA Organic, non-GMO certified spreads-and buttery sticks are trans fat, gluten, dairy and soy free made from a Perfect Blend™ of fruit- and plant-based oils: Fair trade organic virgin coconut, flaxseed, hi-oleic sunflower, Rainforest alliance and sustainably sourced palm fruit and canola oils...that are healthier for humans. IMO-we love the new version -packed with  probiotics too (purple container)! On a restrictive diet-or just liken' the taste-spread on toast, pancakes, tossed over popcorn/pasta etc-just like butter or can be used for baking and cooking too.
BONUS points-a certified B corporation and a Fair For Life Fair Trade Certified corporation...(read this why it matters)
