Das Projekt [I Love fruit & veg from Europe] fördert schmackhafte, kreative und nahrhafte Gerichte sowohl unter dem Weihnachtsbaum als auch auf dem Tisch

ZÜRICH, 20-Dec-2021 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE/ — Während der Festtage gut zu essen, ohne sich dabei zusätzliche Pfunde zuzulegen, ist nicht unmöglich. Die Weihnachtsgrüsse, die das Projekt “I love fruit & veg from Europe” an alle Schweizer schickt, sind voll von saisonalen europäischen Produkten mit Bio- und Qualitätssiegeln und zielen darauf ab, Gesundheit und Wohlbefinden auf dem Tisch zu fördern. Im Dezember umarmen saisonales Obst und Gemüse die Weihnachtszeit regelrecht mit ihren warmen Farben, beleben die Festtage und verwöhnen den Gaumen mit einzigartigen Geschmäckern, die wir auf den Tellern der Festtagsmahle vorfinden. Im Winter sind Zitrusfrüchte das Obst schlechthin: frisch, durstlöschend, reich an Vitaminen B und C und zugleich kalorienarm. Mandarinen, Orangen, Mandaranci, Grapefruits und Clementinen dürfen in keiner Obstschale fehlen. Wohlduftend, einladend und farbenfroh – Mandarinen sind die einzige süsse Frucht in der Familie der Zitrusfrüchte. Sie sind sehr bekömmlich, regulieren den Blutdruck und stärken das Immunsystem.

Eine umweltfreundliche und kreative Idee ist, die Festtagstischdekoration aus Mandarinen und kleinen Tannenzapfen oder einem weihnachtlichen Strauss zu gestalten: Einfach Obst und Lieblingsdekoration auf Holzstäbchen auffädeln, mit Klebeband fixieren, mit Geschenkpapier umwickeln und mit einer bunten Schleife zusammenbinden.

Wussten Sie, dass der Mandarinenbaum drei Hybridfrüchte hervorgebracht hat? Es gibt: die Clementine, eine Kreuzung zwischen Mandarinen und Mandarancios, die Mandarancio, eine Kombination aus Mandarinen und Orangen, und die Mapo, eine Kombination aus Grapefruit und Mandarine.

Was ist das Weihnachtsobst schlechthin? Rote Kerne und viel Glück – die Rede ist vom Granatapfel. Früher war es ein gutes Omen für das neue Jahr, wenn man ihn zu Weihnachten verschenkte und ihn dann am Silvesterabend mit der ganzen Familie teilte. Der Granatapfel ist mit 65 Kalorien pro 100 Gramm eine kalorienarme Frucht, die hauptsächlich aus Wasser (etwa 80%), Ballaststoffen und Zucker besteht und reich an Vitaminen und Mineralstoffen ist.

Er kann in Risottos, ersten Gängen mit Fisch, in Salaten, Obstsalaten und Desserts verwendet werden. Auch für einen leckeren Aperitif eignet er sich hervorragend. Die leckeren kleinen Segmente der Frucht passen zu fast allem und eignen sich zudem perfekt, um eine elegante Weihnachtsdekorationen für Ihr Zuhause und den Festtagstisch zu kreieren.

Der ungeschlagenen Gewinner unter den Gemüsesorten ist wohl der Blumenkohl, oder besser gesagt die Gruppe der sogenannten “Kreuzblütler”, der er angehört. Aus ihnen lassen sich viele Rezepte zaubern, die uns die kalte Jahreszeit verschönern. Blumenkohl kann weiss, gelb, grün oder violett sein, es gibt jedoch auch den Romanesco-Kohl, den vielseitigen Brokkoli, Stängelkohl und Wirsing. Kurzum, im Dezember gibt es eine Fülle von Obst- und Gemüsesorten, aus denen sich mit dem richtigen Rezept ein gesundes und schmackhaftes Festtagsmenü zaubern lässt. Brokkoli ist gesund, reich an Wasser, Vitaminen und Mineralsalzen und hat dabei wenig Kalorien: 25 pro 100 Gramm.

Schmackhaft und zudem ein Symbol des Wohlstands:
Linsen feiern ein grosses Comeback auf dem Festtagstisch, allerdings sind sie so gesund, dass man sie mindestens einmal pro Woche essen sollte. Sie sind die weltweit am häufigsten verzehrte Hülsenfrucht und eine unvergleichliche Nährstoffquelle: Sie sind reich an Mineralien, Ballaststoffen und Vitaminen sowie an Eisen, Phosphor und Antioxidantien. Da sie oft als Beilage gegessen werden, empfiehlt es sich, sie als pflanzliche Eiweissquelle mit Nudeln oder Getreide (oder natürlich mit Gemüse) zu essen, um so in nur einem einzigen Gericht mit allen essentiellen Aminosäuren versorgt zu werden.

Gesunde und kreative Ideen?
Wie wäre es mit einer Suppe mit Reis und Linsen, die Sie mit Ihrem Lieblingsgemüse der Saison anreichern, oder mit Vollkornnudeln mit dem Gemüse Ihrer Wahl oder auch warmen Salaten mit Zwiebeln, Trockenobst und gedünstetem Gemüse…

Unter dem Weihnachtsbaum des Projekts “I love fruit & veg from Europe” liegt ein ganzer Korb voller wunderbarem saisonalem Obst und Gemüse, mit dem Sie sich in der Küche austoben und zu Ihrem Wohlbefinden beitragen können. Darüber hinaus befindet sich im Korb ein exklusives, auf Zitrusfrüchten basierendes Rezept von Andy Zaugg, der sich mit dem Restaurant zum Alten Stephan in Solothurn (1* Michelin, 17 Punkte GaultMillau) einen Namen gemacht hatte. Andy Zaugg steht für eine Küche, die viel Freude bereitet. Sie ist geprägt von einer grossen Harmonie der Aromen und Texturen. Raffiniert, elegant und im Kern doch immer sehr einfach. Heute präsentiert Andy Zaugg seine souveräne Handwerkskunst zusammen mit seiner Geschäftspartnerin und Ehefrau Roberta Zaugg schweizweit als Caterer. In Sternekochkursen und als Coach vermittelt er seine Leidenschaft fürs Kochen, Geniessen und die Sensorik.

Spicy Organics Launches New Website Expanding Their Reach With Exclusive & Quality Products Providing Diverse Options & 40 Years Of Experience

McKinney, Texas, 2021-May-24 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — Spicy Organic, the top pick for organic spices, herbs, teas and essential oils online, today announced the official launch of their website and online shop. With an abiding reputation built on innovation and reliability, the company works with their own network of hundreds of farmers to cultivate lands. More than a spice company, Spicy Organics brings customers the highest quality products and premium service, while also ensuring a sustainable future for their growers, the new website will officially launch on May 24th.

The global organic spice market is anticipated to grow at an annual rate of 10% and estimated to be valued at almost 23 billion dollars by 2025. Organic farming is an agricultural system which originated early in the 20th century in reaction to rapidly changing farming practices. This type of farming uses new techniques to remove spices from bacteria, avoiding harmful pesticides. Spices are not used to merely add flavor and variety, they are also sought after for health benefits such as their antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Spicy Organic offers pure, great-tasting, high quality organic spices, herbs and more while supporting farmers and promoting organic agriculture around the world.

With a strong belief that organic food is an essential choice for personal as well as for environmental health, their products feature premier ingredients and are sourced from global brands. Unlike other spice markets or sellers, Spicy Organics maintains a traceability throughout the process so customers can easily trace their spices from farm to plate. Searching across the world for diverse flavors, the company works closely with farmers and distributors alike, to make sure each part of their supply chain aligns with their commitment to quality.

“Our story is a journey of passion and discovery – we’re enhancers of the culinary experience. Meal time is special as we congregate and share memories with friends and family and we strive to provide the products that allow you to savor those experiences.” said Sunil Kumar, founder of Spicy Organic LLC. “We are thrilled to launch the new website and strongly feel it lines up perfectly with our company core vision for growth and expansion in the future, and to support and promote organic farming.”

Over 40 years ago Kumar’s family, hailing from very humble beginnings, opened a single store in India. The family had a small farm on which they grew high quality spices and, gradually, their dedication to high standards, reliability and providing only the best to their customers grew into a sustainable retail business. Through the years, Kumar has acquired significant knowledge and understanding about organic farming, as well as selecting, growing, harvesting and processing premium organic spices and herbs.

“Spicy Organic is committed to help upgrade the standards of living, spreading awareness for increased environmental concerns and the rise in what can only be termed ‘health hazard diseases’ that come from eating nonorganic foods.” adds Kumar.

All of Spicy Organic’s products are validated through a USDA certification. They also acquire both organic and gluten free certificates, in their unwavering commitment to quality. Best selling products include turmeric, cardamom, Garlic, ginger powder, saffron and garam masala. The new website will showcase daily new arrivals and feature announcements regarding regional or local Annual Seed & Spice events – such as the State Fair of Texas – that Spicy Organics participates in. Customers can gain insights or special discounts and benefits by checking the website.

Though Spicy Organics have continued to expand through the years, they have literally stayed true to their “roots”, maintaining the same integrity the family has come to be known for.

Stuck for That Perfect Adult Stocking Stuffer? Need a Mommy’s Time Out After A Long Day At Home?

East Hanover, NJ, 2020-Dec-07 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — Mommy’s Time Out Wine is the perfect stocking stuffer, and can be enjoyed by just about anyone on your adult stocking stuffer list. Mommy’s Time Out features four varieties including Mommy’s Time Out Pinot Grigio, Mommy’s Time Out Moscato, Mommy’s Time Out Delicious Red, and Mommy’s Time Out Delicious Pink. All are made from grapes grown in Italy and have wonderful fruity undertones. All the wines are fresh, fruity and well balanced, and are delicious for sipping with snacks or to complement a meal.

Being at Home during the Holidays has changed. Hasn’t it? It used to be the place where we all relaxed after a hard day at work. Not now. We may be home monitoring the virtual learning of our children. We might be working longer hours, because work is now remote, and we still have to monitor the virtual learning of our children. We might have to make them lunch because our kitchen is now the school cafeteria. The producers of Mommy’s Time Out Wine understand and have offered the following thoughts to make the holidays the most enjoyable time of the year.

Keep the Holiday’s Simple; Celebrate at Home with Mommy’s Time Out wine. Being a parent is difficult enough. Make Some Memories that will Last a Lifetime. New Year’s Day is a great day to make some family memories. Try taking a family photo with someone holding up a sign with the year. It’s also a great day to measure everyone against the door jam, so they can look back at their growth in years to come. Remind each other and your children of all the good things that happened, and teach your family how to appreciate what they have. One way to do this is to ask each family member to write down three things they were thankful for in 2020 and share them over dinner during the Holidays or on New Year’s Eve.

“No matter what stage you’re at when it comes to being a Mommy, it’s one of the toughest and most rewarding jobs there is. That’s why we believe Mommy deserves something special for herself now and then, with Mommy’s Time Out Wine.” says Mike Cincotta President of Selective Wine Estates, Inc.

Adults over the age of 21 should enjoy Mommy’s Time Out responsibly.

Kentucky Pure lightly balanced mineral water soon to hit the shelves

VANCEBURG, KY, 2020-Oct-01 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — Some new kids on the block are emerging with a novel mineral water offering out of Kentucky, USA.

The company, River Rock Water LLC, is introducing its trademarked brand, Kentucky Pure Mineral Water. The brand offers exceptional taste and a unique, earth-friendly take on packaging. The company has been testing and developing this brand for five years to ensure the highest quality of “very light mineral” water available to consumers.

Kentucky Pure Mineral Water comes from an ancient aquifer that has been supplying the beautiful plains of Kentucky with its highly nutritional content for millions of years. As a testament to the water quality, 105 of the current 143 Kentucky Derby winners were raised on the nutritional grasses of Kentucky which were fed by these waters. Kentucky Pure lightly balanced mineral water is naturally packed with the optimum amount of minerals and trace elements required to promote biological health.

The founder, Tim LeMaster first drank from the well-head on a really hot day, sweating up a storm, and the water tasted so unique, the first words out of his mouth were, “Sweet Water”! As it turns out, farmers in the region had been saying that for centuries. Kentucky Pure Mineral Water has proven to be a real thirst quencher, satisfying the healthy need for refreshing hydration.

The entrepreneurial team behind Kentucky Pure are long time developers of new products. They have applied that product development experience to create a new development for water containers. Their design is 100% biodegradable, bypassing environmental concerns over the destruction and waste caused by traditional plastic water bottles.

Kickstarter Project ‘Did Ya Wheatgrass’ Implements Food-Safety Lab Testing to Validate Quality and Integrity

Pearland, TX, USA, 2020-Sep-15 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — Did Ya Wheatgrass launches their Kickstarter project, on Sept. 22, 2020. Besides growing, harvesting and juicing their own wheatgrass, Did Ya Wheatgrass validates their juice quality and integrity by food-safety testing their wheatgrass juice at an approved Food Technology & Processing laboratory. This ensures the highest quality product to the consumer.

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) states, “It is critical that the wheatgrass is grown from seeds that are processed and obtained from an approved source. The seeds need to be stored and handled to prevent the contamination with any pathogens.” The DSHS continues, “According to FDA, wheatgrass juice is a low acid juice and, under the proper conditions, the raw product is susceptible to the growth of Clostridium botulinum.”

Did Ya Wheatgrass founder Raquel Payan adds, “People don’t get to see the growing process that goes on behind the scenes. And the only way to validate the quality and integrity of the juice is by food-safety testing the wheatgrass juice at an approved Food Technology & Processing laboratory. We want to provide the consumer with the highest quality wheatgrass juice product.” People will ask Payan, ‘How do you get your wheatgrass so sweet tasting? How is it so green?’ Payan responds by saying that the secret is in the growing process. Did Ya Wheatgrass pays considerable attention to the growing process, since it is critical to the quality of juice produced. As a result, Did Ya Wheatgrass Juice Pops are E. Coli free, Salmonella free and Clostridium botulinum free.

The Kickstarter Project, ‘Did Ya Wheatgrass Juice Pops Food-Safety Lab Tested (Vegan Food)’, is scheduled to launch on Sept. 22, 2020. Take a peek and sign up for notifications to stay tuned. For additional information, visit their website: https://www.didyawheatgrass.com.

Mosler afirmó que su mayor inspiración para desarrollar este elixir es el universo, ya que le otorga el conocimiento y la creatividad para lograr conexiones de valor en el plano terrenal.

Recientemente el Elixir de Oro se ha consolidado como uno de los mejores productos dentro del mercado actual y, gracias a ello, se ha logrado una evolución exponencial en el ámbito físico, emocional y energético en las personas que lo han consumido.

Mosler, un artista que se denomina autodidacta explica “He diseñado varias terapias y productos para ayudar a las personas. De hecho, en la actualidad el Elixir se ha convertido en una herramienta fundamental para la elevación de la vibración ya que al tomarlo se amplifican los niveles energéticos. El Elixir de Oro es el resultado de la intensa exploración cromática, lumínica y energética de las dimensiones y de la estructura astral”,

La mezcla del Elixir de Oro está compuesta por ingredientes tales como el agua desmineralizada, oro comestible, plata, cobre y oro coloidal. Cada componente otorga por si solo beneficios extraordinarios dadas sus propiedades antibióticas, regeneradoras, antiparasitarias y desintoxicantes, los cuales en conjunto ayudan en casos de inestabilidad mental, estados emocionales como depresión, melancolía y ansiedad; incrementa el nivel de energía, mejora el sistema circulatorio, descalcifica la glándula pineal, reconfigura los campos áuricos, expande la conciencia, ayuda a equilibrar el sistema nervioso, ayuda con problemas digestivos, equilibra y armoniza cuerpo, mente y espíritu; favorece la concentración, ayuda a mejorar los estados de ánimo, ayuda con problemas circulatorios, alivia el estrés, mejora la condición de la piel, trabaja como agente rejuvenecedor, controla problemas de insomnio y estimula la producción de colágeno.

Mosler explicó que la magia del Oro radica en la autorización de su espíritu, el cual otorga la claridad sobre la utilización correcta de la energía y la evolución del alma. El Elixir de Oro pasa por un proceso de activación, el cual cuenta con una configuración que se basa en la estructura de polígonos de expansión cuántica y exponencial. “En entrevistas recientes he explicado que el Elixir no es tan solo un producto que ayuda a las personas, sino que su creación es algo que va más allá del plano terrenal, algo que logra elevar la energía sin necesidad de realizar grandes esfuerzos” añadió.

Por último, el creador del Elixir de Oro le aconsejó a la humanidad pensar acerca de sus acciones y consecuencias, en el cómo éstas pueden mejorar o hundir a sociedades enteras. A los nuevos artistas les aconsejó mantenerse conectados con el universo y siempre seguir sus principios e ideales.

Survey: One in three fear their favourite fish will be off the menu by 2040

LONDON, 8-Jun-2020 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — High levels of concern for our oceans are driving a new wave of consumer activism, research for the Marine Stewardship Council reveals, as consumers increasingly ‘vote with their forks’ to safeguard our oceans.

The largest survey of its kind involving more than 20,000 people across 23 countries, conducted by independent insights consultancy, GlobeScan, reveals that 6 in 10 seafood shoppers (58%) already made changes to the way they choose and buy seafood in the last year in order to protect fish in our oceans.

Consumer activism includes switching to brands or products that say they help protect the oceans or fish (23%), buying different seafood species (17%) and changing where they buy seafood (15%). Eight in 10 seafood consumers (83%) are prepared to take further action in the future to safeguard our oceans.

That action is being fuelled by the worry held by nearly 1 in 3 people globally (31%) that their favourite fish won’t be available to eat in 20 years’ time. A higher proportion of 18 to 24-year-olds (37%) fear their favourite fish will be off the menu by 2040 than the over 55s (27%). Young people and parents are also more likely to have taken action in the last year1 and be willing to take action in the future to protect fish and seafood2.

For plenty more fish to be left in the sea, two thirds (65%) of seafood lovers say buying fish and seafood from sustainable sources is vital, and two fifths (41%) say they notice ecolabelled products when shopping.

Oceans contain up to 80 percent of life on earth3, with seafood providing an important source of protein to more than 3 billion people across the world4. However, a third of fisheries around the world have been fished beyond sustainable limits, and a further 60% are fished to their maximum capacity5.

This World Oceans Day (8th June), the independent, not-for-profit Marine Stewardship Council is launching a new global campaign Little Blue Label, Big Blue Future. The aim is to encourage more consumers to switch to seafood certified to its rigorous ‘blue label’ standard.

Rupert Howes, Chief Executive at the Marine Stewardship Council said: “With overfishing, climate change and pollution putting increasing pressure on our oceans, the choices we make as consumers have never been more important. This survey shows people really do care where their seafood comes from and how it is sourced.

“At a time when the seafood industry is facing unprecedented challenges as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, we can all play a part in supporting fishers committed to sustainable practises, helping to protect marine ecosystems and safeguarding our seafood supplies for future generations. Choose certified sustainable seafood by looking out for the blue MSC label.”
