Leading US Vintner Makes Grand Prize Award To Nevada Artist

Ironstone Vineyards, a leading US vintner, has awarded its grand prize in its Spring Obsession art competition to Julie Rodriguez Jones of Spanish Springs, NV. Ironstone will promote its Obsession wine for 2005 in forty-nine countries using Jones’s art.

Murphys, CA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 31, 2022 -- Ironstone Vineyards of Murphys, CA, one of the leading vintners in the United States, has awarded the grand prize in its Spring Obsession competition to Julie Rodriguez Jones of Spanish Springs, Nevada. The competition, open to anyone world-wide, called for daffodil art which would herald in Ironstone’s Obsession wine for 2005.


Jones’s piece, "Beneath the Moon" (http://www.artsoul.homestead.com/SpringObsession2005.html) elegantly displayed a grouping of daffodils reaching up in the night sky beneath a golden sliver of moon. Ironstone Vineyards celebrated the award during a gala dinner where award winning chefs presented their newest dishes and Ironstone’s owners, John and Gail Kautz, unveiled a stunning poster made from Jones' piece. The poster will be distributed to forty-nine countries world-wide where the Obsession wine is sold and Ironstone will have merchandise available with Jones’s art on it.

Jones, who is a full time artist, left her life-long career at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 2003 to pursue her passion for art. She says that she couldn't be happier with her career change and with her days being filled with creativity. Jones has two artistic emphases, space art such as supernova, nebula, and planets and her flowers. Her space interests began as a youth and hand building a large telescope as the world entered the space age. Though her interest in flowers initially began with painting roses from her father’s garden, she really began to explore her interest when she first discovered the Ironstone show four years ago, which called for daffodil art. Her interest flowered from there with her drawing blooms from neighbors’ yards and with her receiving a first place award from a New Mexico art gallery for a painting of calla lilies.

Jones's art can be seen at http://www.ArtFromTheSoul.com. Jones has exhibited primarily around the United States and has received a variety of awards and honors including being asked to create the cover art for "Grandfather's Song" by Jake George, a novel released January, 2005 by Arche Books of Nevada. In addition to the grand prize, her piece, The Gift (http://www.artsoul.homestead.com/TheGift.html), featuring a grouping of her father's tools, also received a ribbon at the Ironstone show. Her winning piece, "Beneath the Moon" will become a part of the winery's permanent collection. Jones says, "What a great honor it is to be among those few artists who have previously received this award."

EHS Managers are Increasingly Appreciated by Their Organizations, Enviro.BLR.com Survey Finds

Environmental health and safety managers are perceived as doing a valuable job by their employers. The bad news is that only half of those taking part in BLR's survey report that they regularly communicate the business value of their environmental or safety activities.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) March 31, 2022 -- Environmental health and safety managers are perceived as doing a valuable job, with 75% of the 470 respondents in a Business and Legal Reports, Inc. online survey agreeing with the statement that their organizations see the value in their EHS activities. The trend is positive too, with 77% reporting that expectations for EHS have increased over the past 5 years. Full results of the survey conducted by Enviro.BLR.com – Making State Environmental Compliance Easier – may be downloaded at http://www.blr.com/80502500/PRS7

If increased EHS stature is the good news, however, the bad news is that only half of those taking part in the survey report that they regularly communicate the business value of their environmental or safety activities, or that they have a formal process for measuring EHS performance.

“The profession is growing in stature, and recognizes that it needs to manage toward business drivers,” said Clare Condon, managing editor of BLR’s environmental products. “The response to BLR’s survey shows that EHS professionals need to complete the cycle by finding out how to communicate the value of their environmental and safety activities to upper-level management,” Condon commented.

When asked to relay their biggest on-the-job headaches, 24% of the EHS managers surveyed listed paperwork and red tape, 14% referred to problems getting upper management buy-in, and 27% reported problems with employee training and compliance. Encouragingly enough, more managers say that their budgets are increasing (38%) than decreasing (20%).

To address these growing needs in an era of increased responsibilities, BLR’s Enviro.BLR.com provides regulatory activity tracking, plain-English analysis of EHS regulations, detailed training meetings, checklists and forms, and access to its team of expert attorneys and practitioners for 1-day compliance answers.

Online Advertisers Can Finally Track Total Video Commercial Views

Ever Wondered If You Could Track How Many Times A Video Commercial Was Watched? Video Solutions From KOTW Enables Advertisers To Know How Many Times Any Given Online Video Ad Was Watched.

Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) March 31, 2022 -- KOTW, a broadcaster of enterprise video solutions has what it takes to track how many minutes any online streaming video was viewed.

With KOTW's solutions, a streaming video of any length can be placed on any web page and viewed instantly without waiting for it to download or buffer first. The same video can also be placed in any email message which plays immediately once the email is opened. Multiple videos can also be included in a "container" within an email message, offering the recipient a selection from which to choose.

According to The Online Publishers Association (OPA), a recent study of online video viewing concluded that consumers have a strong positive reaction to online video ads. Seventy percent of respondents said they had seen a video advertisement online, and 44% said they had taken some action as a result of seeing that ad. Specifically, 34% checked out a Web site, 15% requested information and 14% went to a store to check out a product. Most significantly, 9% said they made a purchase and 3% said they bought a subscription as a result of an online video ad.

"We provide advertisers with a measurable method of delivering their clients' products and services to the business world and consumers alike" said Michael Murray, President of KOTW. "Each year millions are spent on print, radio and television ads without ever knowing if the intended target ever saw the ad. By enabling advertisers to track how many times a particular online ad was viewed increases the effectiveness of advertising expenditures” he added.

As the demand for internet video commercials rises, more products and services will be offered directly to consumers. "In the case of our video emails, since the videos are not email attachments, people are less concerned about viruses and more likely to open them. And, since there is nothing to download, all videos arrive as small text files which do not compromise hard drive storage space." cited Murray.

KOTW also offers live video broadcast in a 640X480 format. Other applications include training, customer service compliance, concerts and much more in a standard 320X240 format.

As internet accessibility migrates to faster connection speeds, industry experts feel that consumers are ready to visit internet websites for products advertised on television and KOTW appears to be poised to be a major player in the online video market.

About KOTW Inc.
Michael Murray, a computer programmer with 28 years of experience and one of the first ISPs in Pinellas County, Florida created KOTW which specializes in providing enterprise video solutions such as:

- High Quality Internet Broadcast (640 X 480)

Disgruntled Restaurant Employees Embrace Timothy’s Take-Out

While most people experience poor customer service from time to time, how many of them would be willing to trade places with the poor schmuck across the counter? Precious few, believes author Paul J. Barker.

(PRWEB) March 30, 2022 -- It is impossible to maintain one’s dignity while serving customers in a fast food joint. To be successful in this line of work requires, among other things, patience, humility, mental toughness, and the ability to work like a pack animal. Carl Fellows – embittered narrator of Barker’s stunning debut novel, “Timothy’s Take-Out” – has what it takes to succeed, in theory. So why does he feel so completely out of his depth as manager of a fast food restaurant?


The answer is simple: Carl Fellows is not a people person. He loves animals, forests, ancient castles, and cold November afternoons. At no point do human beings enter into the equation. He had allowed himself to be seduced – by a charming resort town – into taking a job that seems now on the verge of driving him insane.

Too stubborn to concede defeat, young Fellows attempts to make the best of a bad situation. He channels his rage into various get-rich-quick schemes, exhibiting plenty of heart but not much ability. He falls hard for an angelic coworker five years his junior. He looks forward to the sleepy off-seasons, when the tourists depart and the town becomes “like a mythical place.”

Paul J. Barker, himself a longtime restaurant worker, was quick to realize the comedic potential of a book based on employee-customer confrontations and pathetically mismanaged fast food joints. In no particular hurry to get the book done, he set about constructing it with painstaking care, and the fruit of his labor is finally available (both at his website http://www.dontlikemyjob.com and most major online bookstores.)

There are autographed copies of "Timothy’s Take-Out" to be won, also. Check out the popular site http://www.retailsucks.com/ for details.

New Business Offer More Dinner Options to Working Professionals

New personal chef business caters to working professionals. Traveling Gourmet Personal Chef Service announces opening.

(PRWEB) March 28, 2022 -- Imagine coming home from a busy day and having the aroma of freshly cooked meals hit your nose as you walk thru the door. As you walk into the kitchen, you realize that it is clean and your personal chef has been there. Your freezer and refrigerator are full of food that she cooked for you that day. On the counter are heating instructions for your meal tonight and a special gift for Rover from your personal chef. Her way of saying thanks you.

Sounds too good to be true? The Traveling Gourmet Personal Chef Service, started by Chef Kelly Johnson of Ormond Beach, provides that. Chef Kelly creates home cooked, restaurant quality meals for her clients to enjoy in the comfort of their own home. Now not a privilege for the wealthy, clients include busy families, working professionals, senior citizens, and those watching their weight. Having a personal chef is now part of the lifestyle for those who want to eat healthy and save money.

There are several things to consider when hiring a personal chef. Figure out how much time you spend planning, shopping, cooking and cleaning up after your meals, and how much is the cost of food you throw out due to spoilage, the amount you spend going out to eat, whether it at a sitting down or fast food restaurant or the deli at the local grocery store. You might find out that you may save time and money with a personal chef.

After an initial assessment, Chef Kelly creates a menu plan based on the likes, dislikes and dietary needs of her client. Once approved, she sets a cookdate. On the cookdate, She will shop at the local farmers markets for the freshest herbs and vegetables, and the nearest butcher shop and seafood monger to get the freshest meats and seafood avaliable. Then she heads to your kitchen to prepare and cook your meals. Chef Kelly believes in using the freshest of ingredients when she cooks. She states “Fresh tasting food is good food and good food is gourmet food and that what people appreciate.” Once Chef Kelly is done, she labels your meals and clean up her clients’ kitchen, taking her trash with her when she leaves. Her clients come home to some wonderful aromas and a spotless kitchen.

Traveling Gourmet Personal Chef Service serves the Daytona Beach area and Volusia, Flagler and Lake Counties. If you would like more information, you can reach Chef Kelly at(386)589-7555 or email at e-mail protected from spam bots.

Agel Will Enhance the Nutrition Industry with Gel Suspension Supplements Instead of Pills, Tablets and Liquids

Agel introduces an instant dissolving, gel dietary supplement available to distributors through AgelSuspensionGel.com This is a first of its kind product category that will enhance the nutrition industry with gel suspension supplements instead of pills, tablets and liquids. Agel is driving new momentum in the health and wellness industry for 2005.

(PRWEB) March 26, 2022 -- www.AgelSuspensionGel.com is a great site with information about Agel’s products and business plan. These new products are unique in the fact that they present a new delivery method of nutrition for people who cannot swallow or don’t like to take pills, tablets or liquids while providing for nearly 100% penetration of nutrients into the blood stream. It is a well-known fact that many nutrients are lost during the digestion process when taken in the form of pills, tablets and many liquids. The Agel product tastes great and comes as a 3/4oz gel pack. Small packaging is an excellent concept in terms of providing samples and giving away product to friends and loved ones. Large organizations in other companies have been built because of the ability to give away samples. There is no need to take water with this product as it will dissolve and assimilate instantly into the blood stream through the membranes in your mouth. Currently there are four products available to distributors. They are Vitamin/Mineral Gel, Energy Gel, Weight-Loss Gel, and a Super-Antioxidant Gel that contains Acai, Goji, Noni and 12 other powerful superfoods. Billions have already been made in the health beverage arena because of these superfood ingredients. now with portable 3/4oz gel packs available containing those and other superfood ingredients, it is apparent why many are joining Agel.

Experienced and inexperienced network marketers alike are signing up online to purchase new gel suspension products and become the first distributors for Agel. One experienced net-worker said, “It has been a long time since the health and wellness arena has seen a unique new product like Agel…what a breath of fresh air”. Another net-worker was quoted saying “everyone knows that the millionaires in network marketing made it because they joined a great company right at the start and then worked hard to build up their business.” Agel will officially launch in April of this year and according to the number of people already registered, Agel will certainly break all previous industry records. Many professionals consider Agel to be a once in a lifetime opportunity that anyone can take advantage of.

There are a few factors that influence the effectiveness of nutritional supplements: timing of ingestion, the quantity of each nutritional component, and the bioavailability of the nutrients. The portability of the gel packs facilitates the proper timing of taking the supplements with meals, which in tern enhances the absorption of each nutrient. The Agel product contains physiologically appropriate quantities of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Because of gel technology, the nutrients are highly bioavailable. For more information about Agel go to www.AgelSuspensionGel.com

AgelSuspensionGel.com is owned and operated by Xposure Advertising Inc.

Ponca City, OK (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 23, 2022 -- Twenty-five serious competition cooks and backyard barbecue chefs will convene in Ponca City, OK on May 6, to learn just how barbecue masters Ed "Fast Eddy" Maurin and Paul Schatte prepare meats worthy of championship status.

The intensive one-day hands-on event guides students through the maze of selecting cuts of meat, marinades, rubs, smoking techniques and smoking woods. Students will prepare meats and smoke them in the Fast Eddy’s by Cookshack pits provided by event sponsor Cookshack, Inc.

Ed "Fast Eddy" Maurin, inventor of the Fast Eddy’s by Cookshack line of cookers is a veteran contest winner with dozens of trophies to prove it. He invented Fast Eddy’s smokers and joined with Cookshack, Inc. in manufacturing and marketing the 100% wood burning ovens in late 2003.

Paul Schatte, General Manager of Head Country Food Products, Inc., is a 15-year veteran of professional competitions. Awards include Jack Daniel's World Champion 1994, Reserve Grand Champion American Royal Invitational 2004 and over 25 State Championships.

Hayward Harris, the Barbecue Doctor, known for his expertise with ribs, will be on hand to share his knowledge with the class.

Previous faculty includes Ray Lampe, well-known as Dr. BBQ on the contest circuit.

Cost for the class is $200 which can be applied to the purchase of a Fast Eddy’s smoker. To register, call 1-800-423-0698 and ask for Erin.

Cookshack, Inc. has manufactured fine quality smoker ovens for over 40 years. The Fast Eddy’s by Cookshack line was added to round out Cookshack’s product line in late 2003. Cookshack and Fast Eddy’s by Cookshack smokers are used by commercial operations, home users, and contest cooks.

We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Arches, Just Good Food And Service

Former 38-year-old physical therapist uses hands on to turn around half-century old restaurants. Now goes national with franchise consulting agreement.

(PRWEB) March 26, 2022 -- Two Southern California landmarks are venturing into the national scene as Billy’s Deli & Café signs a franchising representation agreement with well-known national franchising firm Robert Ames Business Development (New York).

Scott Ladd, president of Billy’s Deli & Café and Catering, and Alan Feifer, president of Robert Ames, made the joint announcement this week in anticipation of the Franchise Convention Week in Las Vegas next month.

Billy’s Deli & Café presently has two locations in Torrance and Glendale, California. Each of these locations has been in existence for over a half century yet the prosperity of each site has reached unprecedented numbers in the last five years.

“The recent success is do in large part from the same credo that makes any small businessperson a winner: hard work and attention to detail”, said Feifer. “Ladd brought a new life and exuberance to lackluster and aging locations. This success has made Billy’s the target of inquiries about franchising. We’re happy he turned to us for direction,” continued Feifer.

“Imitation is a form of flattery so when business people approached us about franchising, I felt it was a compliment to the job we’ve done,” stated Ladd, a former pizza chain manager who came back to the food service industry after an 11-year hiatus.

Billy’s Deli & Café may be putting its toe in the water at the right time. Adults spend 46% of their food dollars in restaurants and 44% of adults eat out on any given day. The national average full service restaurant unit had sales figure of $730,000 (2002) with an average of $910 per person annually spent on food away from home.

“The food industry has always held itself as “recession resistant”. Industry officials point to the fact that “you never hear about layoffs in the food industry,” said Ladd. “Couple those statements with the Department of Commerce figures that 95% of franchises are still in business after five vs. less than half of self-launched businesses for the same time period, we feel franchising Billy’s knowledge, expertise, experience and brand is perfect at this time, “Ladd continued.

“We chose Ames Development because of Alan Feifer’s quarter century of experience. Secondly, he himself is a former successful franchisor and his company focuses on small and medium size businesses, showing them how to successfully franchise,” commented Ladd.

Robert Ames Business Development Co. (212-330-7477) is in the third decade of franchise consulting. Alan Feifer developed a national and international educational franchise, where he served in the capacity as President and Chief Operating Officer, overseeing more than 70 franchises.

Billy's Deli & Cafe and Catering operates two locations in Southern California. Scott Ladd is President of the Restaurant Division and Billy’s Franchising Operations Company (BFOC).The Restaurant Division is in negotiations for a third and possible fourth location before year’s end. Billy’s Franchising Division will not interfere with these acquisitions and remain a separate entity.

After the winter rains have ceased, and the birds have begun their journeys back north, the salt pans (salinas) of the Belamandil, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the European coastline, are ready to be harvested. During the summer months, weather permitting -- an absence of rainfall and a dry wind from the north -- the salinas are worked by local artisans, salt harvesters (marnotos). The marnotos, on a daily basis, skim the delicate crystals forming on the top of the salt pan by hand, with the same wooden implements that have been used for millenia. The resulting brilliantly white sea salt -- Flor de Sal – literally "the flower of salt" – also known as Fleur de Sel - is a light, crumbly, melt-in-the-mouth salt that maintains all the micronutrients naturally found in ocean water and has been described by many as having hints of sweetness and creaminess, without any of the harshness commonly associated with regular table salt.

Necton’s Traditional Sea Salt (Sal Marinho Tradicional), similar to Flor de Sal, is harvested by hand, but only after the salt crystals have settled on the bottom of the salina. Every three weeks, the marnotos, using similar implements and techniques as with Flor de Sal, exercise great care in harvesting Sal Marinho Tradicional. These crystals, along with Flor de Sal, are placed in piles beneath the Algarve sun, where they are naturally dried, and then sent off for packaging, with no additional processing taking place.

About Flor de Sal USA
Located in Seattle, WA, Flor de Sal USA was started in the summer of 2004 with the goal of bringing Necton’s award winning salts to the U.S. marketplace, with plans to work directly with Necton to develop additional nature-based products which spring forth from the salt pans of the Ria Formosa Natural Park in southern Portugal.

North American retailers interested in carrying Necton's products can visit Flor de Sal USA at www.flordesal.net or contact by phone or email at (206) 407-3882 or at e-mail protected from spam bots.

Health Supplement LimuPlex Featured in New York City Conference

Limuplex, an all-natural health supplement developed by NaturScience, is being featured at a health and dietary supplement conference in New York City, New York on Monday, April 18th at The Source of Life Center.

(PRWEB) March 24, 2022 -- NaturScience, the developers of the all-natural health supplement LimuPlex, is hosting a dietary conference in New York City, New York on Monday, April 18th to promote LimuPlex and raise awareness of natural health supplements.

“Our health supplement, LimuPlex, is a whole food formula containing over 500 of the most important nutrients from both the land and the sea to aid an individual’s energy and vitality, their mental clarity, and a host of other physical maladies,” said Joe Lepore, Independent Representative of NaturScience. “We want to share the great news with everyone, and this conference is a good place to start.”

LimuPlex health supplement is derived from the Limu sea vegetable, as well as extracts from cranberries, elderberries, grape and lotus seeds, and whole colostrum to promote health throughout the body’s interdependent systems. These ingredients in turn benefit the muscular-skeletal and neurological systems of the body and promote cardiovascular, hormonal, and gastrointestinal health.

“Prior to Limuplex health supplement, being constantly on the go, I was in search for a product that would give me energy, boost up my immune system and keep me free from viruses, colds and the flu, and keep me in a happy mood all day,” said Joe Lepore. “My search finally ended when Limuplex came on the seen. I didn’t know how I was living without this product all my life but now I can’t live without it.”

Rachel Ramirez, a customer from Texas, used the LimuPlex health supplement for her digestive problems. “After months of severe digestive distress, and many visits to a GI (gastro-intestinal) specialist, plus several rounds of prescription medication, I had no relief,” said Ramirez. “I tried LimuPlex and Fleximune (another health supplement developed by NaturScience), and to everyone’s surprise, including my GI specialist, I was given a clean bill of health.”

Cliff Butterworth from Idaho suffered from severe joint pain until he began using the LimuPlex health supplement. “My doctor said I would have to learn to live with the pain in my hips, knees, and feet. After a few weeks on LimuPlex, the spring is back in my step, I feel great and I greet each day with a smile,” said Butterworth.

The health supplement and dietary conference will begin at 7pm, Monday, April 18th at The Source of Life Center in New York City, New York. For further information about the conference, please go to www.PowerInAJar.com or call toll-free at 1-877-666-4752 and leave a message. Seating is limited, so please contact Joe Lepore ahead of time to reserve a seat.

Nutritional information and a detailed list of the benefits of each ingredient are also available at NatureScience.com as well as documentation of studies and research on the LimuPlex health supplement.

Just Data Offers Service for Updating the Value of an Investment Wine Portfolio

Just Data, a leading supplier of end-of-day international financial data for technical analysis and portfolio management, recently released an investment wine data service. For the first time futures, stocks, wines and funds can be updated from one software platform.

Brisbane, Australia (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 24, 2022 -- The problem with investing in wines (other than the temptation of drinking them) has been the lack of a reliable source of price information for valuation and evaluation purposes.

Now, however, wine investors have access to a reliable source of investment wine data, similar to the data stock traders have long been able to use in evaluating public companies. Using Just Data's flagship software, BodhiGold, wine investors can now load investment wine data into popular technical analysis and portfolio management software and track their investments much like stock investors do.

Enhancements to the BodhiGold software now provide users with investment wine prices in addition to the traditional end-of-day international stock prices. Wine investors can now update their portfolio of wines with the simple click of a button.

In addition, they can use popular technical analysis techniques to help decide what investment wines to buy and sell.

"This opens up new opportunities for traditional investors to diversify a small part of their overall investment portfolio into an asset class that they might not have considered in the past due to lack of reliable, up-to-date data," said Just Data director Chris Charles. "It also adds a bit of fun to investing."

Investment wines are generally sold on the secondary retail market at prices in excess of their original purchase price. These retail prices are collected and processed by Just Data, ensuring that the prices reflect actual market prices rather than 'shelf' prices.

Gavin Trott, proprietor of the Australian Wine Center, said he found the new software “an excellent opportunity for our wine investors to get regular, true valuation of their cellar based on actual market prices."

BodhiGold has been specifically developed to provide end-of-day data for popular technical analysis and portfolio management programs over multiple asset classes and international securities. BodhiGold is fully configurable, so users can tailor their databases and data to suit individual needs and requirements.

With the addition of wine data, sourced from MW Wines Pty. Ltd., clients can now track investment wines like Penfold's "Grange" and Wild Duck Creek Estate's "Duck Muck" using the same software tools as they would for securities traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

Just Data is offering a free trial version of the software by contacting e-mail protected from spam bots or calling 61-7-2021 5177.

Bodhi is the registered trademark of Electronic Information Solutions Pty. Ltd., trading as Just Data.

For nearly 15 years, Just Data has been delivering end-of-day financial data to traders and investors.

EPA Approves Selectrocide™ - a Chlorine Dioxide Product as Disinfectant, Sanitizer, Algaecide for Multiple Applications

Selectrocide™ from Selective Micro Technologies – Algaecide, Fungicide, Virucide Approved by EPA for Use in Plant Propagation, Food Preparation, Water Storage & Delivery

Beverly, MA (PRWEB) March 24, 2022 -- Selective Micro Technologies announced today that The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has conditionally approved Selectrocide™, a chlorine dioxide product as a disinfectant, sanitizer, and algaecide for applications in the horticulture and food processing industries. Announcement of EPA approval follows only two weeks after Selective Micro Technologies announced an allowance by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for to use its chlorine dioxide product to wash fruits and vegetables.

Selectrocide™ produces greater than 99% pure chlorine dioxide by simply submersing the product in water. The resulting chlorine dioxide and water solution can be used to kill disease-bearing bacteria, fungi and algae. For the horticulture and food industries, chlorine dioxide has not been available to clean plants, food and equipment because chlorine dioxide could not be produced on site without significant chemical residuals. Selectrocide™ makes it possible for the first time to generate specific concentrations of chlorine dioxide at the point of use with very low residuals, neutral pH, using only water with no capital equipment.

“EPA approval allows us to sell chlorine dioxide into hundreds of applications in dozens of industries to reduce levels of bacteria, yeast, and algae. Selectrocide™ has demonstrated in field trials the ability to extend the shelf life of processed food while maintaining taste and presentation. In horticulture, Selectrocide™ has reduced the propagation loss in greenhouses,” said John Warner, CEO, Selective Micro Technologies. “We don’t believe there is a biocide as effective in the world.”

APPLICATIONS FOR SELECTIVE MICRO CLEAN
A complete list of approved applications for Selectrocide™ can be found on the Selective Micro Technologies web site at www.selectivemicro.com. Below are the expected initial uses for Selective Micro Clean in the Horticulture and Food/Beverage industries:

DISINFECTANT, SANITIZER, ALGAECIDE, FUNGICIDE AND SLIME REMOVER/INHIBITER
· Bacteria, algae and fungi control on rooted or un-rooted cuttings and cut flowers, seed-bed soil and planting cubes
· Treats, controls, inhibits algae and fungi in greenhouse irrigation lines, filter systems, walls, ceilings, floors

DISINFECTANT
· Hard, non-porous surfaces such as tanks, transfer lines and other food processing equipment, floors, walls, ceilings in poultry, fish and meat plants, and in restaurants, dairies, beverage and bottling plants, breweries, wineries, commissaries.
· Water system and beverage lines, holding tanks and other equipment used in fountain drink or other beverage preparation, storage, transfer and dispensing operations.
· Boat, RV, Aircraft water lines, storage tanks and potable water applications.
· Medical and dental offices, laboratories, hospitals and clinics that use water storage tanks, transfer lines and filter systems.

ANTI-MICROBIAL AND GENERAL CLEANING
· Boat, RV wastewater tanks and lines
· Fountain drink or other drink preparation, storage, transfer and dispensing lines, equipment
· Coolers, thermoses, plastic water bottles and other water dispensing systems

SUMMARY OF SELECTIVE MICRO CLEAN BENEFITS
· Reduces algae, viruses, bacteria, yeast and mold on food and plant facilities and preparation surfaces
· Reduces bacteria, yeast and mold on fresh cut food
· Extends shelf-life of food – produce lasts longer, looks better, tastes better
· One product for all antimicrobial requirements in both horticulture and food preparation settings

SELECTIVE MICRO®’S CHLORINE DIOXIDE MICRO REACTORS
Selective Micro®’s Selectrocide™ is sold as sachets with reactants contained within proprietary membrane materials. The sachets are immersed into water, producing a greater than 99% pure chlorine dioxide solution, at neutral pH, with virtually no unwanted by-products. Selectrocide™ makes it possible to generate chlorine dioxide at specific concentrations (from 1 part per million (ppm) to 500 ppm) in specified time periods.

According to the Annual Research Report, Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio, TX, 1996, “Chlorine dioxide is a powerful biocide that can kill fungus, bacteria, and viruses at levels of 0.1 to 1 part per million in contact times of a few minutes.” The low levels of chlorine dioxide required to kill microorganisms is in stark contrast to other antimicrobials that require parts per million ranging from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of parts per million in order to be effective. Such high concentrations make the competitive products highly corrosive, dangerous to handle and difficult to rinse. Being highly effective at low concentrations means Selectrocide™ rinses off food and equipment easily, and has no adverse effect on food flavor.

COMMERCIAL USES FOR CHLORINE DIOXIDE
Chlorine dioxide is a highly unstable gas and cannot be transported in containers or cylinders, so its potential over the last 50 years has gone untapped in many applications. For the first time ever, greater than 99% pure chlorine dioxide can easily be produced at the point of use without harmful residual chemicals, high capital expense or complex generation-plant assembly. Further information is available at www.selectivemicro.com or by calling 978-927-6610 X20.

ABOUT SELECTIVE MICRO TECHNOLOGIES
Formed in 1999, Selective Micro Technologies is a private company based in Beverly, Massachusetts. Combining sophisticated science with innovative product design, Selective Micro® has invented a proprietary delivery system that controls the rate and efficiency of gas-producing reactions. Our competitive advantage is the ability to generate specific concentrations of chlorine dioxide with very low chemical residuals and neutral pH – at the point-of-use, using only water, without capital equipment. The Company holds two US patents, and has several other patent applications pending in the US and abroad.

Blimpie(R) Brand Repositioning Becomes Reality Creating the Ultimate “Blimpie Experience”

Company Implements “Contemporary Deli” Vision with Updated Image, Modern Restaurant Design and New Panini-Grilled Ciabatta Sandwiches

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 24, 2022 -- Last fall, Blimpie International Inc., global franchisor of Blimpie(R) restaurants, announced its intentions to re-invigorate the Blimpie brand. Wasting no time, the vision is becoming reality with the implementation of several initiatives – most notably, a refreshed logo, contemporary restaurant design, and an updated menu featuring hot, new panini-grilled Ciabatta bread sandwiches. These updates reflect the 41-year-old restaurant chain’s position as a pacesetter in the sandwich segment.

“Blimpie was the first sub-sandwich chain in the country and we have always been an innovator in menu concepts – from our category-exclusive panini grill to our fresh-baked artisan breads including the new Ciabatta bread,” explained Mark Mears, chief marketing officer of Blimpie International. “Now our brand reflects this forward-thinking positioning, transforming Blimpie from its heritage as a traditional neighborhood sub shop to a more consumer-driven, contemporary deli.” Added Mears, “It’s not just a sandwich – it’s a Blimpie!”

The refreshed Blimpie logo reflects a more contemporary design with bright green and yellow – retaining the core equity of the previous version, while removing the red “racetrack.” According to Blimpie, the updated logo will be integrated first into advertising and marketing materials, and then gradually throughout the system via packaging, merchandising, uniforms and signage.

The redesigned restaurant interiors were created in collaboration with Atlanta-based retail design firm Miller Zell, Inc. The upscale décor includes modern, earth-tone paint and tile, wainscoting, pendant lighting and hardwood laminate flooring. Some unique aspects include a “community table” to seat larger groups, and curved architectural elements to simulate the look and feel of the logo throughout the interior. Elements can be seen in the latest Blimpie restaurant opening in the Pineville, Mo. Wal-Mart.

“The new restaurant design reflects our theme of Real. Fresh. Taste.(TM) and complements our branding efforts with the ambiance customers feel the moment they walk in the door,” Mears said. “We anticipate the design to evolve, but are featuring many of the key elements in our newest restaurants. Other Blimpie restaurants will be implementing the décor at varying levels this year.”

One pillar of the reinvigorated Blimpie brand is the company’s ability to consistently stay on the cutting-edge of menu innovation. Its new Ciabatta bread promotion launches April 1 throughout the country, featuring three Italian-themed sandwiches built on delicious Ciabatta bread and served hot from the Blimpie category-exclusive panini grill.

Blimpie is the only quick-service sandwich chain with a panini grill and the company is aggressively developing new panini-grilled sandwich options, although any of its traditional sandwiches can be grilled by request. “In research testing, consumers told us they prefer a panini-grilled sandwich over a toasted sub in terms of both taste and value,” stated Jennifer Townsend, assistant vice president of menu development for Blimpie International.

Blimpie continues to offer a unique twist on the classic deli menu, appealing to the variety of palates and nutritional preferences of today’s consumer. In addition to panini-grilled sandwiches, Blimpie restaurants feature Gardenburger(R) vegetarian patties, low-carb bread, fresh-sliced top-quality Dietz & Watson meats in each restaurant, and artisan breads in seven flavors – including cheddar jalapeno, hearty wheat, marble rye and zesty parmesan – baked fresh daily in each restaurant. Additionally, Blimpie uses only trusted, well-known suppliers including Frito-Lay(TM), Pepsi(R), Pillsbury(R), StarKist(R), Tyson(R), House of Raeford(R) and T. Marzetti’s(R).

About Blimpie(R): Headquartered in Atlanta, Blimpie International Inc. is a global franchisor of several branded quick-service concepts including Blimpie(R), the company’s core brand. Blimpie serves fresh, contemporary, deli-style sandwiches, soups and salads with Real. Fresh. Taste.(TM) Founded in 1964, Blimpie has grown to nearly 1,600 franchised restaurants across the U.S. and the company is actively seeking new franchisees for available territories.

'Seabrook Island Club' Turns Up the Heat with New Executive Chef, Pastry Chef and Director of Food & Beverage

Changes reflect growing wedding and events business on the island.

Charleston, SC (PRWEB) March 23, 2022 -- There are some new faces in the kitchen at the newly renamed Seabrook Island Club, and they’re turning up the heat on the island's culinary offerings. No longer will Seabrook Island residents and guests need to head to East Bay for 4-star food – they can enjoy the delights of new Executive Chef Sara Carter and new Pastry Chef Ann McCall without ever leaving the island.

Chef Carter, a highly respected chef formerly with Stephen Duvall Catering & Events, takes the helm of the Seabrook kitchen fresh from a highly successful tenure with that company, where she was responsible for handling some of Charleston’s most prominent weddings and events. Before that, she served in a similar capacity with Carolina’s Restaurant, also in Charleston. She was educated at the renowned Scottsdale Culinary Institute.

Pastry Chef McCall also joins the Seabrook kitchen from Stephen Duvall Catering & Events. She was educated at Johnson & Wales University and willoversee all pastry related activities on the island, including Seabrook’s growing share of the wedding cake market. Before her time at Duvall, McCall served as Chef at The Ashley Inn and The Cannonboro Inn.

The two new faces in Seabrook’s kitchen follow the appointment of a new Director of Food & Beverage at Seabrook Island Club. Seabrook officials announced the appointment of Kenneth Gerhardt as the Club’s Director of F&B;, where he will oversee all aspects of catering and special events on the island. An experienced hotelier, Gerhardt brings two decades of food & beverage expertise to his new role at Seabrook. Previously, he was director of food & beverage at Bald Head Island Resort and before that served as director of banquet operations at the Kiawah Island Resort.

John Wilderman, General Manager of Seabrook Island Club, commented on the appointments, saying, “Bringing culinary professionals like Sara, Ann and Ken on board solidifies the new direction Seabrook Island Club is heading. With the new Chef and Pastry Chef, a new director of F&B;, and a new club name, it really is a new day out here on Seabrook.”

Seabrook’s renewed commitment to hosting the finest beach weddings in the Lowcountry has also paid off handsomely in 2005. Says, Wilderman, “In only 3 months, this year’s total number of weddings booked out here is more than double last year’s total. Seabrook Island creates a sense of romance that rivals anywhere in the Southeast. Combine our award-winning cuisine and service
with the beauty of the coast and you have a wedding location unlike any other.”

Located on the southern coast of historic Charleston, South Carolina, Seabrook Island has long been acknowledged as one of South Carolina’s most beautiful barrier islands. Seabrook is home to one of the state’s widest beaches, and Seabrook Island Club golf courses have been designated as the first fully certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary in South Carolina. Nationally recognized tennis facilities and a full service equestrian center add to the unique nature of the island. For more information, please visit www.seabrookislandrealestate.com.

Carbsense Foods, Inc. Changes Name to Eat Well Be Well Foods, Inc.

Carbsense Foods, Inc., a well established sugar-free foods source for diabetic and weight-conscious consumers, is changing its name to Eat Well Be Well Foods, Inc., effective April 1. The name better reflects the company’s position as the leading innovator and provider of genuinely healthy, great-tasting foods that assist in the prevention and management of diabetes and combat obesity.

HOOD RIVER, OR (PRWEB) March 23, 2022 -- Carbsense Foods, Inc., a well established sugar-free foods source for diabetic and weight-conscious consumers, is changing its name to Eat Well Be Well Foods, Inc., effective April 1. The name better reflects the company’s position as the leading innovator and provider of genuinely healthy, great-tasting foods that assist in the prevention and management of diabetes and combat obesity.

“Our new name conveys to consumers that our products are not part of a fad weight loss program that comes and goes, rather they are staples that allow you to maintain a healthy diet for a lifetime,” says Jim Keller, president of Eat Well Be Well Foods, Inc. “This company was founded to provide foods that truly benefit people battling weight issues and confronting diabetes. We are personally attached to this struggle since one of our three founders is a diabetic. We remain committed to not only providing healthy alternative food sources, but also to making sure consumers view us as their partner in this cause. The Eat Well Be Well name will assist us in effectively communicating this message.”

Unlike other companies that claim to provide healthy, sugar-free products, Eat Well Be Well (EWBW) offers a variety of food products that are both sugar-free and do not contain sugar-alcohols that are commonly known to cause intestinal discomfort and can adversely affect diabetics. And because the products taste great, they are also a healthy food alternative for food lovers, in general, looking to manage blood glucose levels and maintain a healthy body.

"EWBW’s full line of current products will remain the same, as will the key individuals who manage the business," the company said. EWBW will announce its new brand offerings targeting diabetes prevention and management in the weeks ahead.
Eat Well Be Well Foods, Inc., headquartered in Hood River, Oregon, cares deeply about the health and welfare of its customers and will continue to create great tasting products that really work.

Marler Clark Files Salmonella Lawsuit Against Paramount Farms on Behalf of Clients Sickened after Eating Contaminated Almonds

Marler Clark, the Seattle foodborne illness law firm, filed a lawsuit Wednesday on behalf of seven people who became ill with Salmonella Enteriditis infections after eating Paramount Farms raw almonds between September, 2003 and May, 2004. The lawsuit was filed in the South Judicial District of the Los Angeles County Superior Court.

(PRWEB) March 23, 2022 -- Marler Clark, the Seattle foodborne illness law firm, and Martinez & Potter, a respected Los Angeles law firm, filed a lawsuit Wednesday on behalf of seven people who became ill with Salmonella Enteriditis infections after eating Paramount Farms raw almonds between September, 2003 and May, 2004. The lawsuit was filed in the South Judicial District of the Los Angeles County Superior Court (Case No. NC036770).

All seven plaintiffs had Salmonella infections linked to almonds manufactured and sold by Paramount Farms. Paramount Farms recalled roughly eighteen million pounds of almonds in May, 2004 after the CDC traced the Salmonella illnesses of 29 people in twelve states and Canada to consumption of Paramount’s raw almonds between September, 2003 and May, 2004.

“We have been working to settle our clients’ Salmonella claims against Paramount Farms for almost a year now,” said William Marler, managing partner of Marler Clark. “Unfortunately, Paramount has not made reasonable offers to our clients to settle their claims”

The plaintiffs are residents of California, Washington, and Arizona. Marler Clark previously filed Salmonella lawsuits against Paramount Farms on behalf of a Kennewick, Washington family and a Renton, Washington, man who suffered from reactive arthritis, a complication of Salmonella infection.

“At this point, we feel that the only chance of obtaining just compensation for our clients is letting a jury decide the value of these claims,” Marler concluded.

Background: Marler Clark (www.marlerclark.com) is known as the premiere foodborne illness law firm in the United States. The firm recently settled the claims of fifty people who became ill with Salmonella poisoning after eating at a Chili’s restaurant outside Chicago. The Marler Clark attorneys have litigated on behalf of over 1,000 victims of Salmonella outbreaks in the last ten years, and have obtained record verdicts and settlements on behalf of thousands of people infected with Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7, Hepatitis A, Listeria, Shigella, Norwalk Virus, and Campylobacter. Recoveries to date are in excess of $175 million.

Sanitation Strategies Launches Online Resource for Food Safety Professionals

SanitationTools.com, designed as an online resource for food safety professionals looking for the latest available food sanitation equipment and food safety related products. Sanitation Strategies, LLC (sanitatioinstrategies.com) has emerged as a leading hygienic solutions provider to the life science and food processing marketplace.

OKEMOS, MI (PRWEB) March 23, 2022 -- The necessity for food processors to apply all available resources to their food safety effort is here to stay. Food safety professionals must cope with an ever-changing playing field in their quest to produce safe food for consumers. To accomplish this daunting challenge, food processing companies require cutting edge technology that reduces microbial contamination, increases shelf life, and ensures the safety of the consumer. Sanitation Strategies, LLC, an Okemos, MI, based hygienic solutions company, has launched their new e-commerce web site SanitationTools.com, designed as an online resource for food safety professionals looking for the latest available food sanitation equipment and food safety related products.

SanitationTools.com will be introduced to the world of food safety at this weeks FOOD SAFETY SUMMIT in Washington DC. SanitationTools.com offers a broad line of sanitation products and equipment such as foamers, foggers, chemical dispensers, sanitizer sprayers, sanitation training videos, food contact sanitizing wipes, and many others. For more information please visit: http://www.sanitationtools.com

"Traditionally, food sanitation equipment and related food safety products have only been available through the food processor's sanitation chemical supplier. The challenge for the food processor is that they don't always get exposure to the latest food safety and sanitation equipment technology. In some cases, the chemical supplier themselves are not aware of new and more effective ways of cleaning and sanitizing the food processing environment. SanitationTools.com provides an excellent resource for the food safety professional in their search to find the best hygienic solutions for their particular processing environment," said Sherman L. McDonald, President of Sanitation Strategies, LLC.

McDonald continued, "SanitationTools.com was conceived with the goal of bringing together the broadest online selection of food sanitation equipment available. We have also brought together related equipment to the sanitation process that helps address the safety of sanitation employees while they clean. Eye wash stations, safety showers, right-to-know stations, and lockout kits are available to help provide a safer work environment for the food sanitation employee. We like to think we help address not only food safety but also employee safety. In addition, SanitationTools.com is an excellent cost reduction vehicle for food processors. The vast majority of food processing companies use sanitation equipment provided on a loaned basis from their chemical supplier.

The food processor does not see the sanitation equipment they use as a capital expenditure under the loaned program, however, they are paying for the equipment they use in the price of the chemicals they purchase. The catch for the food processor is that they are often paying for their sanitation equipment many times over. The standard practice is for the chemical supplier to calculate the cost of the loaned equipment they are supplying the food processor and to add a surcharge to the price per gallon to cover the cost of the loaned equipment.

In most cases, the loaned equipment is paid for in the per gallon cost within 12 – 18 months, after which, the chemical vendor typically keeps the surcharge in place. I have seen some cases where the food processor actually has paid for their loaned equipment five to ten times over because the surcharge remains in place long after the equipment was paid for. Food processors can often reduce their overall sanitation costs by owning their sanitation equipment and negotiating a lower price per gallon for the sanitation chemicals from their chemical vendor."

"Pope Hat Chip" Auction Reaches 25,000 Viewers - Imposter Chip Also Appears on eBay

The Doritos® corn chip that some say resembles the Pope’s Mitre hat has reached the 25,000 viewer mark on auction site eBay.

Salem, MA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 22, 2022 -- The Doritos® corn chip that some say resembles the Pope’s Mitre hat has reached the 25,000 viewer mark on auction site eBay. The chip, listed last weekend by The Chadwick family of Salem, Mass. has had quite the publicity campaign which includes the chip’s own website (www.PopeHatChip.com), a webcam and now a theme song. A parody of the theme from "The Love Boat," the song is available for download at the chip’s website. The webcam has been put up to assure bidders that the chip is being kept safe and secure during the remaining hours of the auction.

Why all the bother for a single Doritos chip? "We’re having some fun with this, for sure," said family spokesperson, Rich Chadwick. "The Pope’s health is improving and Easter week is here – why not share this with the world?" Chadwick, 37, owner of an audio/video production company in the Boston area, MultiMediaPros found the chip while watching TV with his family last Saturday evening.

In what appears to be a frenzy of chip auction fever, a copy-cat chip has appeared on eBay from Canada. The second chip seems to have been broken to match the shape of the Chadwick’s chip and has yet to receive any bids. As of Tuesday morning the bid for the "original" chip was up to over $850. The auction ends tonight at 9:15 pm eastern time.

Vibratory Screeners Optimize Product Throughput in the Food Ingredient Industry

Compact food processing equipment for scalping and sizing materials enables Farbest Brands to optimize product throughput/equipment uptime, while meeting highest quality sanitation requirements

(PRWEB) March 22, 2022 -- Farbest Brands supplies food ingredients to large and small manufacturers for everything from proteins and vitamins to sweeteners, preservatives and specialty products. To meet customer demands, Farbest imports worldwide ingredients for distribution or further manufacturing in its Columbus, Ohio plant, and uses specialized food processing equipment such as compact, vibratory screeners to successfully do so.

Farbest’s ingredients must not only be top quality but also designed to mix, blend or liquefy according to each customer’s production and quality standards. They must meet strict quality, hygiene, and safety standards including HACCP, as well as critical JIT delivery schedules. This requires flexibility, efficiency, and the right equipment to minimize downtime while achieving needed throughput. For Farbest, this meant choosing the right fine mesh separators to efficiently screen food powders and liquid slurries to ensure final product quality.

“When it comes to flat screening, we need to move large volumes of material through rooms with limited space,” explains Dennis Cowles, Farbest Maintenance Manager. “It’s important to have vibrating screeners that are not too large, not easily damaged, and easy to clean.”

While these requirements may seem simple, they are not always easy to achieve. Some equipment designs are prone to breakdown, such as screen tearing during high-volume operation. Various designs have components that can vibrate loose and enter the product stream below the mesh screen. Cleaning these screens to meet stringent safety and hygiene requirements, such as HACCP, can also be tedious and time consuming without the right equipment.

To avoid these problems, Farbest Brands uses a high-capacity, 36-inch vibratory Compact Screener from Russell Finex (www.russellfinex.com), a Pineville, NC-based food processing equipment manufacturer that supplies filters, separators, and other equipment to improve product quality, enhance productivity, safeguard worker health, and ensure that powders and liquids are contamination-free.

Because screening is a primary operation for ingredient manufacturers like Farbest, Cowles felt the compact screeners would benefit his operation.

“The compact screening equipment, used for scalping (removing larger contaminants), enables us to use more of the production rooms for material, and eliminates the need for a costly conveyor to transport material from one room to another,” Cowles says.

Durability also influenced Cowles’ decision. “Since these use wire mesh screens, we don’t have to worry about the screens tearing or pulling loose like those made of nylon,” he says.

As a food ingredient supplier, hygiene is a priority at Farbest. Chemical and physical tests are regularly conducted in-house, while micro testing is entrusted to certified laboratories.

“Many screeners require a lot of time-consuming tear-downs for cleaning, which detracts from productivity,” Cowles explains. “But the design of this screener is simple, which makes it easy to knock down and clean to our stringent requirements.”

Cowles adds that while some screening equipment has commercial hardware such as nuts and springs exposed to the material screened, the Russell unit does not, which eliminates the risk of hardware vibrating loose to enter the product stream.

In addition to supplying screeners, Russell Finex has served a variety of industries worldwide for over 70 years, with applications in food, chemicals, adhesives, plastisols, paint, coatings, pharmaceuticals, metal powders and ceramics.

White Paper Offers Dairy Managers Options in Meeting Strict New Federal Pasteurization Testing Regulations

A new white paper, entitled “Pasteurization Testing in a Stricter Regulatory Environment,” is available to help U.S. dairy lab managers meet new, more demanding Federal pasteurization testing regulations that have gone into effect on March 1st

Norwood, MA (PRWEB) March 21, 2022 -- A new white paper, entitled “Pasteurization Testing in a Stricter Regulatory Environment,” is available to help U.S. dairy lab managers meet new, more demanding Federal pasteurization testing regulations that have gone into effect on March 1st

As of March 1, 2005, dairy lab managers using the Scharer method of visual ALP colorimetric testing no longer comply with U.S. Food and Drug Administration pasteurization testing requirements. On that date, new ALP detection criteria of 350 mU (3 micrograms) per liter (0.075% raw milk equivalent) went into effect.

The white paper, “Pasteurization Testing in a Stricter Regulatory Environment,” reviews the new ALP testing options and explains their benefits to dairy process control and productivity. The paper also examines the Fluorophos® Test System, from Advanced Instruments, Inc. – which exceeds the new ALP detection criteria and enables lab managers to rapidly monitor their production system’s performance and anticipate quality control problems before they reach statutory limits.

Swedish Opera Beer Feeling Its Oats, Cholesterol Lowering OatVantage(TM) Beer Makes Its U.S. Debut

OatVantage is an all-natural, highly concentrated oat bran ingredient that provides 18 times the cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber found in oats.

(PRWEB) March 19, 2022 -- Beverage Marketing USA, Inc., of Paris, Arkansas recently introduced Swedish Opera Beer™, the new light brew that provides 1.5 grams of oat soluble fiber per 12-ounce serving - 54% beta-glucan (the cholesterol reducing compound found in oat bran).

Swedish Opera Beer contains 3.3 percent alcohol by volume and has only 3.9 grams of carbohydrates and just 63 calories per 12 ounce bottle.

Swedish Opera Beer may play an important role in promoting good cardiovascular heath. Nurture, Inc., is the developer, manufacturer and marketer of OatVantage™, the key nutraceutical ingredient in Swedish Opera Beer. OatVantage is a clinically proven cholesterol reducing ingredient with additional heart health benefits in managing blood glucose levels and increasing satiety for weight management. OatVantage is an all-natural, highly concentrated oat bran ingredient that provides 18 times the cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber found in oats.

Research reported by the American Heart Association indicates that for every 10 percent reduction in cholesterol, the risk of death from heart disease decreases 15 percent. In 1997, after reviewing numerous clinical studies, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) determined that diets high in oat bran and low in fat may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by lowering total and LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels.

Swedish Opera Beer is a great tasting light brew designed to lower cholesterol levels with the addition of added oat soluble fiber. The beer is brewed separately and the beta-glucan is combined just before bottling. Recent clinical studies have shown that OatVantage may be
used as part of a balanced diet to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Swedish Opera Beer is geared toward consumers who are looking for a great-tasting, better-for-you brew.

“We have been test marketing Swedish Opera Beer and are extremely pleased with its performance.” says Richard H. Davis, President of Beverage Marketing USA, Inc., “In consideration of the emerging information on the potential health benefits and possible disease prevention qualities of a beta-glucan rich brew along with the natural polyphenolic antioxidants already found in brewed beer. We are confident that Swedish Opera Beer is poised to become the next major nutraceutical brew in promoting good cardiovascular health.” said Davis.* The company is currently finalizing marketing and distribution plans for the product launch. A N/A version is also in the works for the health food market.

It will be available in 12-ounce six-packs. For more information visit: http://www.OatVantage.com

Cornucopia Institute: More Black Marketing Shenanigans from the Organic Dairy Industry?

Non-profit group with undisclosed industry ties attacks Horizon Organic and competing organic dairies.

Churchville, VA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 18, 2022 -- News articles and television broadcasts appearing across the globe have recently profiled a rift within the multi-billion dollar organic milk industry placing industry leader Horizon Organic on the hot seat. ABC News and USA Today are among those reporting on attacks by the Cornucopia Institute, which is described by the news media as a non-profit farm policy research group based in Wisconsin

Blogger Alex Avery’s Milk is Milk blog found at http://www.milkismilk.com/blog.htm exposes holes in the reporting with missing links that suggest this so-called non-profit farm policy group has financial and other undisclosed ties to organic dairy industry interests who are benefiting from the attacks on their competitors. Avery exposes ties between the Cornucopia Institute and Organic Valley – a $160 million organic industry cooperative based in Wisconsin – which the mainstream news media failed to report.

Avery is the research director for the Hudson Institute’s Center for Global Food Issues; his blog addresses marketing issues in the dairy industry which affect consumers, dairy farmers and processors. To learn more, visit http://www.milkismilk.com

WINFUEL Launches First Ever Multi-VitaWIN™

Life is more demanding and more competitive than ever before. Whether or not we realize it we all compete at some level, in varying degrees, for the simple thrill of accomplishment – to win. And so, it is only fitting that a new multi-vitamin, called WINFUEL™, be specially created for those whose lives are dedicated to one thing – winning.

Cedar Knolls, NJ (PRWEB) March 18, 2022 -- Life is more demanding and more competitive than ever before. Whether or not we realize it we all compete at some level, in varying degrees, for the simple thrill of accomplishment – to win. And so, it is only fitting that a new multi-vitamin, called WINFUEL™, be specially created for those whose lives are dedicated to one thing – Winning.

WINFUEL™ is the only vitamin to hit the shelves with the aim of helping users to win. Going beyond the traditional “for your health” daily vitamin routine, WINFUEL focuses on winning and the psychological as well as physiological stamina the body needs for a winning performance.

“Three separate formulas were created to meet the specific needs of men, women, and children,” said Alex Goen, founder and CEO of WINFUEL, Inc. “Each formula provides more of certain key vitamins and minerals than found in other popular name brands.”

WINFUEL Men’s Formula

· WINFUEL Men’s Formula has more Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, and Lycopene than Centrum® with Lycopene.
· WINFUEL Men’s Formula has more Vitamin A, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Calcium, and Zinc than One-A-Day® Men’s Formula.

WINFUEL Women’s Formula

· WINFUEL Women’s Formula has more Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, and Calcium than Centrum® with Lycopene.
· WINFUEL Women’s Formula has more Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, and Pantothenic Acid than One-A-Day® Women’s Formula.

WINFUEL GenNextTM (Ages 6-16) Formula

· WINFUEL GenNext has more Vitamin A, Thiamin, Niacin, Phosphorus, and Zinc than One-A-Day® Kids Scooby Doo!™ Complete Vitamin.
· WINFUEL GenNext has more Thiamin and Phosphorus than Centrum® Kids Rugrats® Complete.

Men’s and Women’s formulas are available in a 50-count bottle and a 120-count bottle. The soon to be released GenNext chewable formula will hit shelves in the Spring in a 50-count bottle. All formulas are competitively priced.

2005 Poised to Be Year of the Asian Cuisine, According to New Report

Flavors and ingredients have moved center stage in an increasingly sophisticated and diverse food industry.

New York (PRWEB) March 18, 2022 -- Once relegated to supporting roles, flavors and ingredients have moved center stage in an increasingly sophisticated and diverse food industry, according to, “Market Trends: Food Flavors & Ingredients Outlook 2005,” a new report from market research publisher Packaged Facts.

And this year, Packaged Facts predicts that Asian cuisines to take center stage, with the flavors and spices of India becoming more prominent. Spanish and Latin ingredients are still hot, while Caribbean has slowed somewhat. African and Moroccan flavors are still on the horizon, but getting closer. We’ll see more regionalization of international cuisines as specialty foods from specific regions in different countries gain cachet.

An interesting component of Asian flavor will be the rise in prominence of fruits native to the region. Fruit has begun to play a starring role in cutting edge flavor and ingredient trends. Fruit is fresh, healthy, and exotic – the perfect combination for today’s key food trends. Watch for more use of orange; pomelo; pomegranate; tamarind; Asian fruits yuzu, kaffir lime, and lychee; and berries with health benefits including guarana, acai, and goji berry.

“Creating flavors that “wow” will be more than just adding heat in 2005, it will include layering flavors, considering umami, and creating sensation – a sense of intensity and tingling,” said Don Montuori, Acquisitions Editor for Packaged Facts.

Indeed, one flavor sensation we may hear more about in 2005 is umami—a term identified more than a thousand years ago in Asia, but nonetheless “new” to western chefs. Often referred to as “the fifth taste” (joining sweet, salty, bitter, and sour), the Japanese concept embodies the quality of being savory

Food Flavors & Ingredients Outlook 2005 is the second in an annual series of reports that examine the ingredients, cooking styles, tastes and trends that will influence what we eat at restaurants and at home in the coming year.

Westec InterActive Selects the Voice Tracker™ Array Microphone for Enhanced Audio in Retail and Restaurant Audio/Video Surveillance and Operations Audit

Westec InterActive, the leader in interactive remote security monitoring for convenience store, retail, restaurant and other business applications, selected Acoustic Magic’s Voice Tracker™ array microphone to be used for enhanced audio for audio/video monitoring. Enhanced audio is especially important for Operational Audits, enabling clear reception of conversations between employees and customers.

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Westec InterActive, the leader in interactive remote security monitoring for convenience store, retail, restaurant and other business applications, today announced that it has selected Acoustic Magic’s Voice Tracker™ array microphone to be used for enhanced audio in retail and restaurant audio/video surveillance applications. The decision was made after it was tested in several Circle K, 7-Eleven and McDonalds sites that have Westec interactive security systems.

“Acoustic Magic’s Voice Tracker array microphones proved to be very effective in recording conversations in settings where there is a lot of background noise, such as convenience stores,” said Michael J. Upp, Vice President, Business Development for Westec InterActive. "The Voice Tracker™ reduced the background noise from air conditioners, fans, and other equipment, improving the sound quality of recordings at the stores."

The Voice Tracker’s unique technology locates the region where the conversation is coming from and electronically steers a “listening beam”, like an acoustic searchlight, in that direction. This creates spatial filtering, and “noise” from other parts of the room is not picked up.

“The ‘listening beam’ allows our Operational Audit Specialists to clearly hear conversations between employees and customers. This helps monitor customer service levels and accurately report findings back to our customers,” says Upp.

Acording to Acoustic Magic, its Voice Tracker™ microphones are effective in reducing background noise by utilizing both spatial filtering and digital noise reduction. They also have improved sensitivity by constructively adding the outputs of the 8 individual microphone elements in the array.

“Westec InterActive was the first company to recognize the potential of the Voice Tracker as a surveillance microphone in convenience stores,” said Bob Feingold, CEO of Acoustic Magic. “We’re pleased to have our technology used by Westec, the leader in remote access security.”

About Westec InterActive"
Westec InterActive, the pioneer of interactive security and remote monitoring, delivers an integrated solution that answers the concern of employee safety, as well as key business operational issues such as shrink, employee turnover and inventory control.

Safety.BLR.com Helps Employers with this Challenge: How to Deliver Required OSHA Training to a Growing Population of Hispanic Workers

Safety.BLR.com has just created a Spanish Resources Center to help employers keep up with the challenge of keeping a rapidly growing multilingual workforce in compliance with OSHA’s safety and health requirements.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Experts at OSHA recognize the problem, but busy employers are the ones trying to cope with it. Immigrants make up an estimated 14 percent of the U.S. workforce, and nearly half of them are considered to have limited proficiency in English. That translates into a big challenge for employers: how to keep a multilingual workforce in compliance with OSHA’s stringent safety and health requirements.

Fortunately for employers, Safety.BLR.com, the website for safety professionals that makes training and compliance easier, has just created a Spanish Resources Center at http://safety.blr.com/spanish.cfm. The Center includes Spanish training handouts and quizzes on 54 OSHA topics. It also features news, white papers, forms, guidance documents, regulatory activity, and agency directives and interpretations to help manage occupational safety and health for the Spanish-speaking workforce.

Steve Quilliam, editor at Safety.BLR.com, commented on the site’s new Resources Center: “OSHA requires companies to make sure their employees understand safety training and follow OSHA requirements. That obligation doesn’t change if their employees have a limited understanding of English. So with its prewritten training materials and handouts, our new Spanish Resources Center can be a helpful solution to this challenge.”

The 54 training topics in the Resources Center include Spanish handouts and quizzes on confined spaces, defensive driving, electrical safety, and eye protection.

Sample safety meeting for Hispanic workers:
To help employers get their training started, BLR has made available a sample hazard communication training meeting in English and Spanish, similar to those available at Safety.BLR.com. To download this free sample, go to www.blr.com/81001600/PRS3

Gourmet Garage, New York City’s own specialty food marketplace, today announced that it has opened its fifth store in Manhattan at 1245 Park Avenue, between 96th and 97th streets.

New York (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Gourmet Garage, New York City’s own specialty food marketplace, today announced that it has opened its fifth store in Manhattan at 1245 Park Avenue, between 96th and 97th streets.

“The neighborhood is definitely underserved in terms of food outlets,” said Gourmet Garage CEO and President Andy Arons. “It’s a funky demographic, too: Park Avenue meets uptown, with employees from Mount Sinai hospital thrown into the mix. It’s a great blend. The neighborhood north of 96th Street is on the upswing, and we’re happy to be part of that trend.”

Formerly a Pioneer supermarket, the 5,000-square-foot store has been vacant for the last two years.

In addition to specialty gourmet items, the store will carry an expanded variety of prepared foods created under the supervision of Gourmet Garage executive chef Anthony Balderose. Also featured will be Peet’s fresh-brewed coffee, a sushi bar, hot soups to go, organic produce, and an extensive catering menu.

Gourmet Garage’s other outlets include: Soho (453 Broome Street at Mercer Street), Greenwich Village (117 Seventh Avenue at 10th Street), East Side (301 East 64th Street between 1st and 2nd avenues), West Side (2567 Broadway at 96th Street).

The new Park Avenue store will also carry a variety of natural and organic food products, as well as traditional grocery items for customer convenience. “Gourmet Garage enables everyday customers to shop like a chef,” said Arons. “We pride ourselves on our ability to bring the freshest, finest produce, meat, fish and specialty items from around the world directly to our shoppers.”

About Gourmet Garage:
Founded in 1981, Gourmet Garage started as a wholesale distribution company servicing New York’s finest restaurants. The company opened its first retail outlet in Manhattan in 1992, offering a wide variety of specialty, natural, organic, and traditional food items.

New Report Shows Health and Wellness Concerns are Driving Breakfast Food Consumption, Product Formulation

After suffering through the dark days of the low-carb craze—when everything wheat-related was evil—the breakfast foods market is enjoying a rebound, thanks in part to convenient product formulation, consumer health concerns and the rehabilitation of whole grain foods, according to “The U.S. Market for Breakfast Foods and Beverages,” a new report from market research publisher Packaged Facts.

New York, NY (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- After suffering through the dark days of the low-carb craze—when everything wheat-related was evil—the breakfast foods market is enjoying a rebound, thanks in part to convenient product formulation, consumer health concerns and the rehabilitation of whole grain foods, according to “The U.S. Market for Breakfast Foods and Beverages,” a new report from market research publisher Packaged Facts.

Over the past five years, the strongest selling categories in this $24 billion business have been fresh eggs and breakfast meats, thanks in large part to the recent obsession with high protein diets. Eggs, in particular, have boomed of late, posting a nearly 19% boost in sales in 2003. Also fueling growth have been sales of breakfast bars—a byproduct of the American consumer’s desire for convenience—and innovative new products, such as specialty eggs and pre-cooked bacon.

Indeed, the largest single category, breakfast cereal, had been hurting of late, losing 2.2% between 2000 and 2004. But that may soon change, as marketers reformulate products and consumers recognize that the wholesale rejection of carbohydrate-laden foods can be a nutritional mistake.

“Well before low-carb, breakfast cereal sales had been hurting, and the low carb diet didn’t help,” says Don Montuori. “But cereal marketers have gotten smart, and are repositioning their products to respond to adult and childhood health concerns, with moves such as lowering sugar content in kids’ cereals or, in the case of General Mills, converting its entire cereal line to whole grain.”

The U.S. Market for Breakfast Foods and Beverages profiles leading breakfast marketers—among them, General Mills, Kellogg, Kraft, and PepsiCo—along with specialists in healthier prepared foods such as Atkins Nutritionals, Keto Foods, and Carbolite Foods. The report also analyzes key competitive and marketing trends, advertising expenditures and positioning, and retail trends, including a look at future growth opportunities in products, packaging, marketing, and merchandising.

Flax Oil Creator Advises Hilary Swank and Jay Leno: Don’t Drink it from the Bottle – Pour Some on a Salad

“Father of Flax” Udo Erasmus gives the facts about flax oil supplements

Lynden, WA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 16, 2022 -- In a recent interview with Jay Leno, Oscar winner Hilary Swank prodded the Tonight Show host into taking a big swig of flax seed oil, one of the dietary supplements Swank said she used to pack on 19 pounds of lean muscle for her role in Million Dollar Baby. Leno, who apparently had never tasted flax oil, promptly gagged and spit it out.

“There aren’t many who can drink flax oil straight from the bottle,” said the supplement’s creator, Udo Erasmus. “Ms Swank probably should have dribbled a few tablespoons on a salad and let Jay try it that way. That’s how I take it.”

Erasmus, known as “The Father of Flax” for creating the first commercially available organic flax oil in 1986, doesn’t harbor any bad feelings at Leno’s reaction to his supplement, commonly called “Udo’s oil” by health enthusiasts and body builders.

“Flax oil’s health benefits are so enormous that I’m just thankful it was mentioned on national television – even though Leno called it a couple names our marketing people probably never thought of,” says Erasmus.

Erasmus thinks Hilary Swank probably doesn’t realize the tremendous positive influence she’s having on the health of the entire country by talking publicly about her use of flax oil during her nine week training experience.

“To prepare for her part as a boxer, Hilary used flax oil the way most athletes and body builders do -- to turn on the body’s fat burning genes, increase energy and stamina, prevent joint discomfort, and enhance muscle development,” says Erasmus. “But the nutrient in flax oil that does all those things, an essential fatty acid called Omega 3, also improves circulatory health, decreases risk of heart attacks, strokes, and prevents certain types of cancer.

“I’m hoping the more Ms Swank discusses her training regimen, the more people will be inspired to try flax oil supplements -- and this can only improve health all across America.”

For those considering using flax oil either as a training aid or to enhance their general health, Erasmus offers these words of advice:
• “Essential fatty acids are easily destroyed by heat, light, and air, so make sure the flax supplement you purchase is packaged in a dark bottle to keep out air and light, and has been refrigerated both during the shipping process and while on the store shelf.

• “Because oils tend to leach toxic molecules from plastic, be sure your flax oil supplement is packaged in a glass bottle, preferably dark or opaque.

• Flax oil’s essential fatty acid Omega 3 is most effective if balanced with the essential fatty acid Omega 6. Check to ensure that your flax oil supplement contains a source of Omega 6, like sunflower or sesame seed oil.

“Balanced flax oil is a supplement everyone should take everyday,” says Erasmus, “but probably not directly from the bottle.”

Udo Erasmus, Ph.D. and author of the best selling book http://florahealth.com/flora/home/usa/healthexperts/udobooks.asp [“Fats That Heal Fats That Kill”, has been researching and developing organic seed oil supplements for the health food industry since 1983. He developed the “Udo’s Choice” line of organic dietary supplements for Flora, Inc., including his Omega 6-Omega 3 balanced “Udo’s Choice Oil Blend”.

Advanced Instruments’ Fluorophos Test System Exceeds New Pasteurization Testing Regs, Monitors System Performance & Quality

Advanced Instruments’ new Fluorophos® Test System dramatically exceeds the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s new pasteurization testing requirements and evaluates samples in 3 minutes.

Norwood, MA (PRWEB) March 16, 2022 -- Advanced Instruments’ new Fluorophos® Test System dramatically exceeds the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s new pasteurization testing requirements and evaluates samples in 3 minutes.

As of March 1, 2005, dairy lab managers using the Scharer method of visual ALP colorimetric testing no longer comply with U.S. Food and Drug Administration pasteurization testing requirements. On that date, new ALP detection criteria of 350 mU (3 micrograms) per liter (0.075% raw milk equivalent) went into effect.

The new Fluorophos technology provides sensitivity to 0.003% raw milk and, unlike the colorimetric method, confirms the pasteurization of many different dairy products including bovine, sheep, and goat milk, flavored and cultured products, and cheeses. The cost per test is low and there is no need to run control samples with each test.

The Fluorophos test has been approved by the International Standards Organization, International Dairy Federation, Interstate Milk Shippers, and AOAC.

Fluorophos Testing Delivers Speed, Sensitivity, and Early Warning
Foremost Farms, formerly Wisconsin Dairies adopted the Fluorophos ALP testing system because of its speed, sensitivity, and because it didn’t require any hazardous chemicals that could endanger lab technicians. “The new ALP test is so sensitive it opens a window on what’s happening well below the 0.1% level,” said a company official. “It acts as a buffer. It buys us extra time to detect and correct problems.”

The Fluorophos test can be used to monitor and verify pasteurizer performance over time, giving plant managers an early warning and detection system to reduce unnecessary maintenance expenses. Sorrento Cheese of Buffalo, New York, experienced these benefits with the Fluorophos Test System. “The test is much more accurate than the standard Scharer Rapid phosphatase test and it produces results in three minutes,” said the company’s laboratory manager.

White Paper Available
A free, informative white paper reviews ALP testing options and explains their benefits to dairy process control and productivity. Titled “Pasteurization Testing in a Stricter Regulatory Environment,” the paper is available free – by download at Advanced Instruments’ web site at http://www.aicompanies.com/fluorophos,or by calling, toll-free, 1-800-225-4034

The new Fluorophos® Test System is on display at Advanced Instruments’ Booth #444 at the Food Safety Summit 2005, March 16-18 in Washington DC.

How-To BBQ DVD Brings Authentic Barbecue Cooking to the Backyard Cook—Earns 2 Top Awards

BBQ is enormously popular, but while many people know how to grill, a relative few know how to cook authentic-style barbecue.

Beaverton, OR (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 15, 2022 -- BBQ is enormously popular, but while many people know how to grill, a relative few know how to cook authentic-style barbecue. "BBQ Secrets: The Master Guide to Extraordinary Barbecue Cookin’," an interactive DVD video cookbook, brings authentic barbecue techniques to the backyard cook. For the recently announced 2004 winners, it has earned both the Aurora Award’s "Platinum: Best of Show" in the Instructional Cooking category, and the Communicator’s "Crystal Award of Excellence" in their "How-To" video category—their highest awards.

Filmed in 3 geographic locations: St Louis, Little Rock, and Kansas City; 3 former grand champion BBQ cooks, and restaurateurs, demonstrate how to barbecue pork shoulder, ribs, chicken, whole hog, pork chops, and more. This video includes an 18-page booklet of the champion’s own recipes covering meats, rubs, BBQ side dishes, and sauces. Unlike other how-to barbecue videos, "BBQ Secrets" also relies upon the use of story to convey information and connect with its audience. Publisher, Kell Phelps, of the National Barbecue News writes: "The overall quality on this tape surpassed all my expectations and truly is second to none."

About The Champion Barbecue Cooks
Each cook has extensive experience in the competition world, and each is a successful restaurant owner. World champion Mike "Sarge" Davis, founding member of the Southern Gentlemen's Culinary Society competition team, and head cook for the Whole Hog Café in Arkansas, shows off his signature whole hog cooking. Missouri’s restaurateur Terry Black, and his Super Smokers BBQ team, a consistent Memphis in May winner, demonstrates his pork ribs. Eight-time Grand Champion, and owner of Oklahoma Joes Barbecue Restaurant, Jeff Stehney, reveals his "low and slow" approach to cooking beef brisket.

"BBQ Secrets" delivers detailed and comprehensive barbecue cooking instruction from 3 master cooks, whose accomplishments are born out of many years of dedicated competition experience. Each cook demonstrates their own styles that have brought them success, and recognition. Of "BBQ Secrets," Bill Ives, editor of Portals and KM, (a popular technology, food and music Blog site), writes: "It will make you a better cook."

FDA Allows Use of Radically Different Food Safety Product For Fruit, Vegetable, Produce Industries

Selectrocide™ from Selective Micro Technologies – After Field Trials, Growers, Packers and Grocers Predict Big Savings on Products that Last Longer and Look Better on Store Shelves.

Beverly, MA (PRWEB) March 14, 2022 -- Today food safety in the United States took an important step forward after the FDA allowed the use of a radically different and highly-effective food antimicrobial called Selectrocide™ to wash fruits and vegetables. Created by Selective Micro Technologies, Selectrocide produces more than 99% pure chlorine dioxide solution. Food processors can use Selectrocide to reduce microbial levels and improve their product quality over an extended shelf life.

“It’s important for food processors to understand that bacteria and other organisms living on the surface of fruits, vegetables cause them to rot and carry disease, which may present a food safety issue” said Richard Hamilton, chief scientist and co-founder of Selective Micro Technologies. “It’s long been known that chlorine dioxide is an ideal biocide for killing unwanted organisms. However, previous products that generate chlorine dioxide have contained harmful contaminates. Selectrocide is a product that creates greater than 99% pure chlorine dioxide in a convenient, easy-to-use form. Simply add water.”

Field trials conducted by processors and grocers have shows that processed fruits and vegetables can last up to 50% longer, look and taste better by applying the Selectrocide solution. A full report of the field trial results is available at http://www.selectivemicro.com/documents/ProcFoodFieldStudy.pdf

“The FDA’s allowance of Selectrocide on fruits and vegetables has the potential to dramatically improve food safety and quality throughout the fruit and vegetable supply chain,” said John Warner, president and co-founder of Selective Micro Technologies. “We have seen great interest from international growers planning to reduce spoilage microbes and extend shelf life of food shipped around the world.”

“The implications of Selectrocide use reach well beyond the produce industry into all segments of the food industry. Our products are cleaning clinical instruments and pharmaceutical processing equipment in addition to being used as a disinfectant and sanitizer for horticultural settings,” continued Warner. “Where there is a need to reduce microbial levels, sanitize food processing equipment, clean medical instruments, and pharmaceutical manufacturing, we plan to be there.”

FOOD SAFETY AND FOOD TASTE
Selectrocide’s use on food is particularly important for American consumers because much of the food now consumed in the United States is grown in foreign countries and shipped to grocers in North America. Food safety standards vary widely around the world and enforcement can be equally unpredictable. Bacteria and fungi found on food surfaces often manifests in growing fields and hothouses, and proliferate in transit to grocery stores in the US. Food growers who participated in Selectrocide field trials have created methods to ensure produce grown in foreign markets is sanitized prior to packaging and remains sanitized while in shipment to stores.

The field trial process yielded reduced microbial levels, increased shelf life and improved overall look and taste quality of food products.

SUMMARY OF SELECTROCIDE BENEFITS
· Reduces bacteria, yeast and mold on fresh cut food
· Extends shelf-life – produce lasts longer, looks better, tastes better
· See study results at http://www.selectivemicro.com/documents/ProcFoodFieldStudy.pdf
· One product for all antimicrobial requirements

SELECTIVE MICRO’S CHLORINE DIOXIDE MICRO REACTORS
Selective Micro’s Selectrocide is sold as sachets with reactants contained within proprietary membrane materials. The sachets are immersed into water, producing a greater than 99% pure chlorine dioxide solution, at neutral pH, with virtually no unwanted by-products. Selectrocide makes it possible to generate chlorine dioxide at specific concentrations (from 1 part per million (ppm) to 500 ppm) in specified time periods.

According to the Annual Research Report, Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio, TX, 1996, “Chlorine dioxide is a powerful biocide that can kill fungus, bacteria, and viruses at levels of 0.1 to 1 part per million in contact times of a few minutes.” The low levels of chlorine dioxide required to kill microorganisms is in stark contrast to other antimicrobials that require parts per million ranging from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of parts per million in order to be effective. Such high concentrations make the competitive products highly corrosive, dangerous to handle and difficult to rinse. Being highly effective at low concentrations means Selectrocide’s chlorine dioxide rinses off food and equipment easily, and has no adverse effect on food flavor.

COMMERCIAL USES FOR CHLORINE DIOXIDE
Chlorine dioxide is a highly unstable gas and cannot be transported in containers or cylinders, so its potential over the last 50 years has gone untapped in many applications. For the first time ever, greater than 99% pure chlorine dioxide can easily be produced at the point of use without harmful residual chemicals, high capital expense or complex generation-plant assembly. Further information is available at www.selectivemicro.com or by calling 978-927-6610 X17

ABOUT SELECTIVE MICRO TECHNOLOGIES
Formed in 1999, Selective Micro Technologies is a private company based in Beverly, Massachusetts. Combining sophisticated science with innovative product design, Selective Micro has invented a proprietary delivery system that controls the rate and efficiency of gas-producing reactions. Our competitive advantage is the ability to generate specific concentrations of chlorine dioxide with very low chemical residuals and neutral pH – at the point-of-use, using only water, without capital equipment. The Company holds two US patents, and has several other patent applications pending in the US and abroad.

Vancouver’s First Customized Culinary Concierge Service

Eric Pateman is pleased to announce the launch of a vibrant culinary tourism enterprise, Edible Vancouver. Billed as Vancouver’s first customized culinary concierge service, Edible Vancouver provides local and out of town visitors, corporate businesses and event planners, the opportunity to plan a complete and discerning culinary itinerary and experience through one source.

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) March 12, 2022 -- Eric Pateman is pleased to announce the launch of a vibrant culinary tourism enterprise, Edible Vancouver. Billed as Vancouver’s first customized culinary concierge service, Edible Vancouver provides local and out of town visitors, corporate businesses and event planners, the opportunity to plan a complete and discerning culinary itinerary and experience through one source.

Pateman brings his more than fifteen years of global expertise as chef, hospitality consultant and food critic, to the table, while aide-de-cuisine, chef and hospitality pro, Marijoel Cramer adds a wealth of complementary culinary experience to the mix. Together, they use their extensive experience, personalized touch and a discerning and demanding approach to selecting establishments, to meet the needs of any occasion and budget.

“Food forms a major part of the travel and event experience. Edible Vancouver ensures that users of our service have a chance to discover the local hot spots, the best dining rooms and our world-class restaurants. In other words, we showcase the very best that Vancouver and B.C. has to offer,” says Eric Pateman, president of Edible Vancouver. “This is culinary tourism and Edible Vancouver is your culinary tour guide.”

Edible Vancouver’s current offering has been created to appeal to individuals and groups as diverse as visitors looking for an out-of-the-ordinary culinary experience to corporations and businesses organizing team building sessions, client entertainment, incentive awards, milestone celebrations, and staff parties. Event planners will find Edible Vancouver a great source for everything from spousal programs to customized excursions. In addition, packages can be customized for weddings, anniversaries, or any commemorative occasion.

“We’re on tap for social events like pre-wedding parties, reunions, and girl or guy getaways and more,” adds Pateman. “In fact, recognizing the growing demand for girlfriend retreats led us to create the Girlfriend’s Culinary Weekend from April 1st to the 3rd starting at the Marriott Hotel in Victoria and ending at Sooke Harbour House.”

Some of Edible Vancouver’s services include:

- Culinary excursions
- Private cooking classes
- Wine Dinners
- Chefs’ Tables
- Culinary-based activities such as visits and tours to specialized restaurants, wineries, artisan food producers, specialty food shops, farmers markets, fishermen’s wharf markets, and chocolatiers, to name a few.
- Guided cultural/culinary tours to either or both Chinatown, Little India, Little Italy, and Yaletown, hosted by local food personalities
- Customized, personalized culinary itineraries for visitors
- Restaurant recommendations and reservations
- Single-day tours of Greater Vancouver to multi-day excursions around B.C.

While Edible Vancouver is based in Vancouver, the company’s experience and expertise extends to the entire province including the Fraser Valley, Vancouver Island, Whistler, and the Okanagan.

So what is Edible Vancouver’s recipe for success?
According to Pateman, it’s because the company exceeds clients’ expectations. “We know our region intimately and can plan a culinary adventure guaranteed to whet your appetite and fire a hunger and thirst for more. We’ll spill our culinary secrets, tour you through some of the best, most scenic wineries in the country, and show you how diverse our culinary landscape is, all customized to meet your needs.”

Another notable and key fact is that Edible Vancouver is independent.

“We have no ties to anyone or anything and nothing to gain – except your confidence and your business. We’re here to tune you in to what best suits your culinary appetites.

Research and Markets : Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Debate Rages

Research and Markets (researchandmarkets.com/reports/c13693) has announced the addition of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Credit Trading Report to their offering.

(PRWEB) March 11, 2022 -- Greenhouse gases are gases that have the ability to absorb heat in the atmosphere. Most are naturally occurring and others man-made. In both cases, human activity is believed to be increasing the levels of these gases in the earth’s atmosphere. Many scientists agree that these changes in atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases(GHGs) can and will alter the balance of energy transfers between the atmosphere, space, land, and the oceans causing the earth to warm up like a greenhouse. In the past century alone, the average surface temperature of the Earth has increased by 1º Fahrenheit. While this may not seem like much, it is likely a larger increase than any other century within the last 1,000 years, and has been accompanied by melting glaciers, an increase in sea level, and more extreme rainstorms.

The debate about whether global warming is occurring, or even if it is occurring, whether or not global warming is detrimental, rages on. However, most agree that taking action to reduce GHG emissions is the wisest course of action for the future.

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c13693) has announced the addition of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Credit Trading Report to their offering.

The report is a definitive 125-page study of the current state of the global move towards developing markets for trading GHG emissions credits.

The report takes a comprehensive look at what's driving the development of trading regimes, what's the best way to implement trading, what options exist for participation in trading, what the current and future state of the market is, and who the major players are.

Topics covered in the report include:
- Overview of the climate change debate
- Details on the major greenhouse gases
- Explanation of the Kyoto Protocol and the Marrakesh Accords
- Discussion of the basics of GHG emissions trading
- Comparison of different trading schemes and methods
- Review of U.S. and International actions to implement GHG emissions trading
- Analysis of the current market for emissions credits
- Forecast of future emissions credit market volume and prices

Gourmet Mushroom Workshop Calendar Extended to Meet Demand

Due to increasing demand, Asheville, NC, shitake mushroom workshops extended into April.

Asheville, NC (PRWEB) March 11, 2022 -- Due to increasing demand, Tom Magruder’s hands-on “Grow Your Own Gourmet Shitake Mushrooms” workshop calendar has been extended into April. Participants can now choose from the following dates: March 19 or April 2. The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Synergy Center (www.synergycenter.us), located at 6 E. Lookout Rd., Asheville, NC 28805

In his 4-hour hands-on workshop, Magruder is helping mushroom lovers from Asheville and surrounding areas discover how they can enjoy organic gourmet mushrooms at a fraction of the cost by growing them year-round on hardwood logs. Through lecture and hands-on experience, Magruder leads participants through the entire mushroom growing process of selecting logs and suitable mushroom strains for their growing area; inoculating, incubating, and arranging the logs for optimum yield; and harvesting ripe mushrooms for peak flavor. By workshop end, each participant will have the information, experience, and resources they need to create a bountiful shitake mushroom garden.

Since shitake mushroom logs take up minimal space and can fruit both indoors and out, Magruder’s workshop is suitable for homeowners and apartment dwellers alike. Also, no gardening experience is necessary because once started, a mushroom garden will produce again and again with little or no attention.

How to Register…
To register for March 19 or April 2, contact Tom Magruder at 828-296-1121 The workshop costs $65 in advance and $75 at the door. In addition to hands-on experience, participants will receive a 2-foot shitake mushroom log ($30 value) to help them begin their mushroom garden. Attendance is limited, and advance registration is strongly encouraged. Participants should bring work gloves and wear suitable clothes to work outdoors. The outdoor work area is covered for rain or shine.

About Tom Magruder…
Tom Magruder has been an avid home gardener for over 25 years. He believes that successful gardening comes from working with the essential intelligence of nature, and specializes in growing organic produce year-round. He has been cultivating shitake, oyster, and maitake mushrooms for 4 years.

Imaje Use Their Loaf to Meet the Bakery Challenge

January 2005 saw the implementation of the new EU food traceability legislation, placing further demands on manufacturers to improve not only the traceability of the end product but the raw materials that make the end product. Imaje has been working with many food manufacturers to assist them in meeting their coding requirements and the new mandatory traceability laws.

(PRWEB) March 11, 2022 -- One major supermarket chain has issued a challenge to its bread suppliers; to code directly onto bread bags to ensure effective traceability throughout the product’s life. Currently all the coding information is recorded on the plastic tape or clip used to fasten the bread bag. Once opened, however, and the tape or clip is removed, the traceability is effectively lost.

Imaje have a proven track record in the bakery industry, having supplied many well known bakeries with equipment to code the best-before dates and other product traceability information onto primary and secondary packaging for cakes, biscuits, naan breads, crackers, speciality breads and pies. When recently approached by a well-known bakery to meet the new traceability requirements, Imaje were able to quickly supply a customised solution.

The application presented two main problems; firstly an odour-free, fast-drying ink which would not “taint” the bread, and secondly, the printhead had to be positioned in such a way that irregularities in loaf shapes could be accommodated.

A solution currently being tested in some bakeries involves spraying hot melt wax onto the bread bags; this is a process that requires the printhead to be in close proximity to the product. Due to this closeness, the process carries a high risk of the plastic bread bag melting should the hot printhead come into actual contact with the product. In addition, the code can easily be scratched off during the handling process which limits its suitability for traceability.

The Imaje solution, on the other hand, uses the versatile S8 Master inkjet printer, which already has a well-earned reputation for reliability. The S8 Master printhead can be placed over 30 mm away from the product without losing the quality of the code, thereby offering a degree of flexibility when coding irregular shaped loaves. Imaje have also developed an odour-free ink that still maintains the excellent adhesion properties of its solvent-based counterpart, with no increase in drying time and without the risk of tainting the taste of the bread.

The S8 Master is compatible with the recently developed Imaje CustomDate+ software. This software enables variable information such as best-before dates from an external device (such as a barcode reader) to be inserted automatically into a previously selected message during the production process in “real time”. For example, when taking bakery shift patterns into consideration, the software would allow night production, which effectively runs over two days, to be coded with the same date information. Therefore the software avoids manual input and reduces the risk of coding errors.

Other printer features such as the vapour recovery system, automatic ink-pressure adjustment and continuous automatic regulation of ink viscosity ensure the S8 Master delivers consistently high quality marking and excellent reliability at a very competitive price. An IP65 version is also available for use in harsh production environments.

“Imaje work closely with their customers to ensure they have the best possible solution to their coding and traceability requirements,” comments Steve Ellison, Sales Manager, Imaje UK. “We keep ahead of new legislation affecting coding and traceability issues, in all industries, to ensure we offer the best possible solution to our customers. We regularly invest in time and resources to develop bespoke applications for individual customers - ensuring that their installation accurately meets all the given criteria. This not only relates to equipment and software, but also inks and ancillary equipment.”

Mr Ellison goes on to explain, “The Imaje ink developed for use by the bakery industry poses no threat of tainting the food. We recognised there was a demand for an odour-free, quick drying ink with excellent adhesion properties and set about developing one ….. as far as Imaje are concerned, it’s as simple as that!” concluded Mr Ellison.

Toftejorg Technology A/S Changes Name to Oreco A/S

Oreco A/S develops the market's most effective systems for automated, non-man entry tank cleaning and oil recovery.

Ishoej, Denmark (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 10, 2022 -- Oreco A/S is the new name of Toftejorg Technology A/S, developers of the market's most effective systems for automated, non-man entry tank cleaning and oil recovery.

Toftejorg Technology are longstanding leading specialists in automated systems for tank cleaning and oil recovery. As an element in the company's reprofiling, and to signal a more rejuvenated market approach, Toftejorg Technology has been renamed Oreco A/S

"Oreco stands for Oil REcovery COmpany," says Managing Director Michael M. Meyer, "because this is the area in which we have our core expertise. Our new name will continue a tradition of tank cleaning expertise that goes back almost half a century."

Ready for the Challenges of the Future
The combination of advanced technology, robust cleaning systems and a global network of partners has given Oreco a prominent market position. Nevertheless, many challenges await in the years ahead.

Environment, health and safety are critical issues in today's world. And tank farms, tank cleaning companies and refineries require both fast and effective tank cleaning solutions that make optimal use of resources and create minimal environmental pollution.

"We therefore look forward to the future with considerable confidence," says Michael M. Meyer. "With our existing product programme and with ongoing development of our systems we enable our customers to meet modern-day requirements."

Established, Safe Systems
Oreco's integrated and automated solutions, BLABO® and MoClean®, are established names in the market and will therefore retain their existing identities. They will continue to represent innovative technology which is used and valued all over the world.

Safety considerations are met through system design to HSE specifications. This means that the systems combine almost 100% oil recovery with non-man entry, which eliminates the risks involved in manual tank cleaning.

But Oreco's work is far from finished there. Oreco continuously improves its systems, ensuring that the company can present new and effective ways of meeting the oil industry's environmental requirements also in the future.

Ready for a Caffeine High?

A must for Starbucks, International Foods or perhaps Peets Coffee?

Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) March 10, 2022 -- Today it was announced that www.Percolator.com is up for sale for the first time in almost 10 years. Peter Mackeonis purchased the domain name Percolator.com in the mid 90's as an investment, anticipating that it was just a matter of time before coffee would be the high-octane beverage of choice that it is for much of the world today: "I became hooked on espresso during a school trip to Italy in 1963", he said, continuing, 'I was only 12 at the time, but I knew it was only a matter of time before the rest of the world would catch on."

Judging that the time is now right to sell, Website developers Peter and Lisa Mackeonis have designed and built Percolator.com specifically to sell to a forward thinking owner/operator as a business opportunity, although they expect it to be snapped up by a corporate behemoth such as Starbucks or Peets coffee just for the name.

"Coffee is of interest to more than 75% of the American public," said Peter Mackeonis, continuing, "so although this could be the definitive coffee-and-paraphernalia listing site for an entrepreneurial individual, Percolator.com presents a real opportunity for household-name coffee-related advertisers to present their products to a public hooked on coffee and at a website that is perfectly named." he continued.

Questions or offers should be addressed to Peter and Lisa Mackeonis at 831-840-3729

Milk Marketing Blog Challenges Tillamook and Dairy Industry to Stand Up to Activist Attacks

Non-profit food and farming advocate claims Tillamook cheese decision will harm farmers, consumers and the environment.

Churchville, VA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 10, 2022 – The latest “Milk is Milk” blog found at http://www.milkismilk.com/blog.htm by Alex Avery challenges dairy consumers and industry groups to stand up to misleading activist campaigns which attack dairy farmers and disparage safe and affordable milk.

Avery highlights the recent Tillamook Creamery decision to restrict dairy farmers’ use of a safe, FDA-approved animal health and productivity product in response to special-interest group demands.

The Center for Global Food Issues (CGFI) charges that Tillamook Creamery, under attack from activists groups funded by the organic and natural products industry, has banned its members’ use of supplemental bovine somatotropin (rbST – also known as bovine growth hormone), without addressing the serious ramifications for its members, consumers and the environment.

Supplemental rbST is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as safe, and according to such organizations as the American Medical Association and World Health Organization, milk from cows receiving these supplements is the same, safe nutritious milk from all other cows.

CGFI adds that supplemental rbST use, which allows dairy farmers to produce more milk with fewer cows, has measurable positive environmental impacts.

“Before these anti-technology, pure-food activists showed up, were any of their actual customers asking for this change? If Tillamook consumers are at all representative of virtually every piece of credible consumer research on this subject the answer would be no,” stated Avery. “The vast majority of consumers care about fresh, safe, nutritious, affordable dairy products.”

The Milk is Milk consumer education campaign run by CGFI seeks to end the disparagement of dairy products through activist campaigns and black marketing – such as labels and advertising, which misleadingly promote absence claims on such issues as antibiotics, hormones and pesticides.

Avery contends that responding to activist demands – and the accompanying false and misleading marketing which often results – limits the tools farmers have to safety produce affordable milk. CGFI asserts this also creates a downward spiral in the market place causing increased costs and reduced demands for dairy products by consumers confused and scared away from dairy products in general.

As a result, Avery claims farmers suffer economic damage while consumers pay more and consume less dairy products.
“Once Tillamook’s management let the activist genie out of the bottle, it was hard to stop their media and propaganda machinery from threatening the company’s reputation and products,” said Avery. “The activists and those who fund them are the only winners here. Farmers, consumers and Tillamook are the big losers.”

The Center for Global Food Issues “Milk is Milk” consumer education campaign Blog has created a buzz among the dairy industry and continues to draw significant traffic from media, industry experts and farmers during its first month of existence. The latest entries are at http://www.milkismilk.com/blog.htm

The Center for Global Food Issues is a project of the Hudson Institute, a tax-exempt non-profit public policy organization, providing factual, science-based information on important food and farming issues.

Celebrated Vintage not Holding Up to Expectations: The 1990 Bordeaux are Dying, says Wine Critic

Wine critics have widely praised the 1990 Bordeaux wines for their quality and cellaring potential. Unlike what has been written the 1990 Bordeaux are dying.

(PRWEB) March 9, 2022 --Wine critics have widely praised the 1990 Bordeaux wines for their quality and cellaring potential. In April 2003, during a tasting of the First Growths and of some Second Growths from the Left Bank, however, wine critic Thierry Paul Leroux was disappointed by the evolution of several of them. At the time, and without excluding a worst-case scenario, it was thought that the wines were in a "dumb" phase, he wrote on www.EliteWine.com

Based on the thirteen 1990 First, Second and Third Growths from Saint-Estèphe, Pauillac, Saint-Julien and Margaux appellations that Thierry Paul Leroux tasted recently, it is now certain that the worst has happened. The 1990 Bordeaux wines from the Left Bank, including those known for their great cellaring potential, are dying.

Since only one Saint-Emilion was tasted, unfortunately with the same result, Thierry Paul Leroux contacted world-famous Bordeaux-based wine consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt to see if the catastrophic findings also applied to the wines from the Right Bank. Derenoncourt’s exact answer was: "For the Right Bank, it's even worse!"

“Today, it does not matter what are the factors responsible for this very disturbing result; the possible explanations will be examined later. What matters is that wine enthusiasts must know that the 1990 Bordeaux, including the very best of them, should be drunk rapidly, unlike what wine critics said” wrote Leroux on EliteWine.com. “The 1990 vintage does not have the cellaring potential of the great vintages in Bordeaux. Either from the Left Bank or from the Right Bank, the 1990 Bordeaux are dying” he added.

These findings have implications for wine lovers, wine collectors and wine auctioneers worldwide as the 1990 vintage in Bordeaux is considered to be one of the best of the 1990s as is reflected in prices, often reaching several hundred dollars per bottle.

EliteWine.com is an online magazine for the world’s most discriminating wine lovers. Thierry Paul Leroux, wine critic and wine consultant with over 30 years experience, can be reached at (512) 470-5944 or by fax: (512) 386-89

Survey on Hotel Cuisine Promotions by Dining Downunder

To identify the challenges for hotels in hosting cuisine promotions, Dining Downunder has developed an industry survey which is located at www.dining-downunder.com/survey.asp . The survey will run until the end of March and allows hotels to evaluate future promotions and distinguish the profitability of a particular event.

(PRWEB) March 9, 2022 -- Guest chefs are commonly invited to host hotel promotions around the world. However many promotions are still seen as significant cost centres and run for public relations rather than as for what they should be - serious revenue generators.

To identify the challenges for hotels in hosting cuisine promotions, Dining Downunder has developed an industry survey which is located at http://www.dining-downunder.com/survey.asp . The survey will run until the end of March and allows hotels to evaluate future promotions and distinguish the profitability of a particular event.

Dining Downunder’s survey covers all the necessary facets to providing a successful hotel cuisine promotions and includes areas such as; promotional budget; cuisine selection; menu development; marketing; staff training; sponsorship; room sales and most importantly, what makes a promotion successful?

The survey also directs participants to think outside the square to attract attendees to the promotions and look at what opportunities they offer potential guests. Then there is also the consideration of staff training. How convenient can it be to invite a guest chef who specialises in a particular cuisine and have them instruct the kitchen brigade on the intricacies of his specialty cuisine? Why shouldn't the Human Resources Department contribute to the promotional budget?

As the survey is of industry benefit, Dining Downunder will share the responses for all chefs, F&B; directors and General Managers to consider. The results will be emailed out in early April.

Promotions Survey is located at www.dining-downunder.com/survey.asp

New Report Shows More Americans Drinking Shots as Part of a Healthy Diet

“Healthful Halo” of Probiotic-Enriched Cultured Dairy Products Increasing in Popularity
Downing a few shots as part of a healthy diet may be just what the doctor ordered according to “The U.S. Market for Cultured Dairy Products,” a new report from market research publisher Packaged Facts.

New York (PRWEB) March 9, 2022 -- Downing a few shots as part of a healthy diet may be just what the doctor ordered according to “The U.S. Market for Cultured Dairy Products,” a new report from market research publisher Packaged Facts. Probiotic shots are becoming increasingly popular in the U.S. and contain highly concentrated doses of beneficial bacteria that help to boost the immune system and aid in digestion, among other things.

According to the new report, probiotic shots have experienced triple-digit growth in recent years. In 2004, for example, Packaged Facts shows that sales rose to $8 million, a 105% increase over 2003. The compound annual growth rate for these drinks in the U.S. was 114.6% for the period of 2000-2004.

Concentrated probiotic shots are often sold in small, single-serve bottles that average just over 3 ounces each and come in multi-packs. They’ve enjoyed widespread popularity throughout Europe and Japan and, if statistics in this new Packaged Facts report are any indication, are quickly taking America by storm.

“Cultured dairy products, particularly yogurt, are enjoying a renaissance in the American marketplace,” said Don Montuori, Acquisitions Editor for Packaged Facts. “There is a tremendous amount of product variety, and the category has been bolstered by a growing awareness of the need for calcium and growing evidence that dairy products can assist in weight loss and maintenance.”

Gout Relief - Cherry Juice or CherryFlex One a Day Softgels: Tart Cherries are a Natural Cox - 2 Inhibitor for Pain Relief from Joint Inflammation and Gout

Tart Cherries are natural Cox - 2 inhibitors for joint inflammation and Gout. Daily consumption of one ounce of Brownwood Acres Montmorency Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate or CherryFlex One a Day Softgels is an easy way to enjoy all of the health benefits of Tart Cherries.

(PRWEB) March 8, 2022 -- Medical research has shown Tart Cherries to contain anti-inflammatory compounds. Many people are reporting Arthritis, Gout and Fibromyalgia relief from taking Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate or CherryFlex Softgels.

One of the most researched aids for Gout is Cherries. Gout is caused by the build up of uric acid in the blood stream and eventually the joints. Gout is a type of arthritis (inflammation of the joints) that mostly affects men age 40 and older. It is nearly always associated with an abnormally high concentration of uric acid in the blood. Uric acid is produced in the liver and enters the bloodstream. Under certain circumstances, the body produces to much uric acid or excretes to little. As uric acid concentrations increase, needle like crystals of a salt called monosodium urate (MSU) form. In time, MSU crystals accumulate and cause inflammation and pain, symptoms typical of gout. Cherries contain flavonoid compounds that can lower uric acid and reduce inflammation.

Because they contain the anthocyanins and flavones found in tart cherries, CherryFlex capsules and cherry juice concentrate can be effective in reducing the pain associated with gout. Recent studies also show that the antioxidant compounds in Cherries may be 10 times stronger than Aspirin or Ibuprofen in relieving arthritic pain. In addition, Tart Cherries contain Melatonin which helps with the bodies sleep rhythms and Perillyl alcohol, thought to shut down the growth of cancer cells by depriving them of the proteins they need to live.

North American Vending Machines Announces All New, Solid Chrome Vending Machine Stand and Base

North American Vending Machines Announces All New, Solid Chrome Vending Machine Stand And Base – The Strongest, Most Stable Base In The Industry That Is Now Part Of The Toughest Vending Machine On The Market Combined With A Written Lifetime Guarantee On Every Part Of Every Machine.

Draper, UT (PRWEB) March 8, 2022 -- Vending Machines by North American Vending now have the all new, solid chrome stand and base – the strongest, most stable base in the industry that is now a part of the toughest vending machine on the market combined with a written lifetime guarantee on every part of every machine.

Visit the North American Vending Machines Website at http://www.navending.com/ because Vending and Vending Machines is one of the fastest growing industries in the market today says CEO, Terry Bird, “and a stable, solid chrome stand and base are critical to your success.”

First, our Vending Machines by North American Vending are bright, colorful, and these are the machines that are easy to place because they are so attractive, and the solid chrome stand and base stands out to “grab the attention” of the buyer. Independent research also shows that bright colors psychologically attract people's attention, and North American Vending knows the research is factual based on actual North American Vending sales.

Visit The North American Vending Showroom at http://www.navending.com/showroom.htm because our Vending Machines have the most attractive, eye-catching colors in the industry, and be sure to see the new Snack and Soda Combo Unit. North American Vending machines can vend Candy, Toys, Nuts, Capsules and 1” Gumballs.

Second, our square, chrome Vending Machine base is the most stable base ever to be introduced to Vending. They measure 22 stable inches across so they are easy to service, and our Vending Machines are safe. “Parents worry that four, five, and six year old children are going to accidentally knock over a vending machine when the change is inserted.” With many machines, a four year old is more stable than the plastic machine, but North American Vending Machines are solid metal – chrome – while some of those “cheap, plastic machines fall over like bowling pins while our North American Vending Machines are strong enough to knock over the bowling ball,” joked Bird. And it is important for Mom’s and Dad’s to know their children are safe when they are learning to use new things.

“Go ahead, compare features of our Vending Machines to those of the competition at http://www.navending.com/compare.htm, and that is the reason we developed the challenge.”

North American Vending Machines Challenges the Industry: “Buy one of our machines, and then buy any one of our competitor’s machines,” says Terry. “Compare the North American Vending Machine with the other Vending Machine you purchased, and if you are not satisfied when you compare the two Vending Machines, send our machine back and we will give you a full refund – no questions asked!”

Review the Lifetime Guarantee and Customer Care Guarantee here because most guarantees come from the manufacturer, and do not come from the seller: At North American Vending, we manufacture and sell our own machines so take a good close look at our guarantee at http://www.navending.com/guarantee.htm.”

Vending may be the answer for those who are seeking a new Business Opportunity, a Small Business, Franchise, for those seeking to become a Dealer, or a Vending Dealer, and for those who want to earn money while they work at home.

North American Vending, the only manufacturer to offer a Lifetime Guarantee on every vending machine sold, is one of the largest manufacturers and sellers in the United States with a wide variety of Vending and Vending Machine opportunities.

Visit The North American Vending Showroom at http://www.navending.com/showroom.htm because our Vending Machines have the most attractive, eye-catching colors in the industry, and be sure to see the new Snack and Soda Combo Unit. North American Vending machines can vend Candy, Toys, Nuts, Capsules and 1” Gumballs.

And these machines are 100% metal. There are no moving plastic parts to break down on a weekly basis.

Whether you now own vending machines, or are seeking a new business opportunity, or want to start a small business, and work from home to make money, visit North American Vending at http://www.navending.com

"We have purchased and tested every Vending Machine on the market," says Bird, and "our warehouse is full of broken down machines, and many of these competitor’s machines broke down within days of putting them on location."

At North American Vending we show these broken down, brand name, plastic machines to our customers so our customers can make a good, sound, educated decision when it comes to their vending machine business.

Are North American Vending Machines more expensive than plastic machines? "Yes." says Bird, "Chrome and metal are more expensive than plastic, but you have to purchase our vending machines just once while most of our customers have purchased 3, 4, and 5 plastic machines, and have already discovered the problems with plastic."

“Yes,” says Bird, “once you own just one plastic machine you understand immediately that our machines would be inexpensive at twice the price because you simply cannot earn money from broken, plastic machines that break down again and again -- and worse, you lose your vending locations because customers complain to the store about machines that do not work.”

Vending, and Vending Machines are becoming more and more popular for people as a business opportunity, for those who want to start a small business, for those who want to start a business, for those who want a home-based business, and for those want to work at home and make money or earn money. In fact, says Terry, "My own daughter is in college today, she has a car payment, and she is paying her own way with just ten machines."

"Many of our new customers have been interested in the vending industry for years," says CEO, Terry Bird, "and vending machines sales are at a record level because consumers are purchasing fresh candy, toys, gumballs, soda, sandwiches, and snacks at record levels. Our machines can vend all these products," says Bird, "while many of the machines on the market today cannot."

And the potential Return on Investment is important. “My own machines are putting my daughter though college; those earnings represent a Return on Investment that is helping my Daughter to become independent while she is getting an education. On top of that,” says Bird, “I do not have to provide my Daughter with a college scholarship.”

Linda’s Mission: Make Elk a Household Word

Linda Karber aims to make a thriving market for elk meat. That means putting in on everyone’s list as a healthful alternative to beef, pork, chicken and fish.

Watertown, SD (PRWEB) February 8, 2022 -- When Linda Karber sets her mind to something, she doesn’t stop until she gets it done. Her current mission is to make a thriving market for elk meat. That means putting in on everyone’s list as a healthful alternative to beef, pork, chicken and fish.

Karber has been raising elk for almost 30 years, but until recently her markets have been for breeding stock, for hunting reserves and for the horns, which are used in traditional Asian medicine. When she took possession of a sizeable herd in 1988 as part of a divorce settlement, she knew she had to find more buyers.

“My first thought was, ‘What am I going to do with all these elk,’” she said. “Then I decided to go to work promoting the elk industry. I made videos of all the elk herds in South Dakota and took them to all the major fairs across the state. I wanted to convince farmer’s that raising elk was a great use of their land and show them that elk can be an alternative agricultural industry.”

Karber became active in the South Dakota Elk Breeders Association, but after two years she still had a lot of elk on her hands.

“Some people from the Governor’s Office of Economic Development came to one of my trade-show booths one day and offered to help with a grant for a feasibility study on raising elk for their meat,” Karber continued. “Up to that time, South Dakota had not been a factor in the elk-for-meat market.

“So we learned what it would cost to raise elk for butchering, where the markets are and what the competition is. I tried giving away free elk burgers at butcher shops just to let people know that elk meat was available, but I didn’t make a lot of progress until someone told me about a local woman who does a wonderful job of building effective websites.”

“I can’t go marketing elk meat all over the country, so selling on the web made a lot of sense,” Karber said. It was in 2000 that www.elkmeatshop.com was born.

“It took two years before we were in the black, but I didn’t get discouraged because the internet sales built steadily,” Karber explained. “Now I’m raising more elk and sometimes have to buy from other South Dakota producers.”

Karber is finally in the black herself, but she’s not finished with her mission. “Elk meat is the perfect main course for today’s health-conscious eaters,” she said. “It has more protein, less fat and fewer calories than turkey, chicken, beef, pork, salmon and even buffalo. My goal is to make that common knowledge.”

Start-up Restaurants: Get Financing for Equipment Purchases

New businesses in the food service industries that need equipment now but are not able to find financing can take advantage of the Qlease.com Start-up Food & Beverage Service (SFBS) program. The program works like this, find your equipment, apply online for up to a $15,000 equipment lease and receive up to 36 Month terms. According to Qlease.com President Casey Jensen, this program is rare in the finance industry, not many lenders are willing to give start-up restaurants a chance.

(PRWEB) March 8, 2022 -- Obtaining financing for new food and beverage businesses in the early stages can be extremely difficult. Using the Qlease.com Start-up Food & Beverage Service program is a way to ease some the concerns with adding important equipment now. “We recognize the challenge new restaurants have in securing the financing they need for important equipment” Jensen said. “This program is our way of saying we are here to help.” The SFBS Program requires higher quality credit and is for a maximum of $15,000 for equipment that has a serial number (exception made for furniture).

This program is specifically for Food and Beverage Service oriented businesses, such as bakeries, bagel shops, bars, brew pubs, cafes, coffee shops, catering businesses, delicatessens, candy shops, ice cream/yogurt shops, nightclubs and of course restaurants.

Certain tax advantages may also be a good reason to use the Qlease.com program for your next equipment lease. Using IRS Section 179 may allow you to take advantage of accelerated depreciation. Section 179 could be a great benefit come tax time; of course a tax professional should always be consulted before determining this.

Qlease.com is a full service commercial equipment leasing and finance company. Qlease.com has the ability to approve “A, B & C” Credits as well as Start-up Businesses. Qlease.com has aggressive rates for every deal. Getting approved can be as easy as filling out the online application.

(PRWEB) March 8, 2022 -- Millions of tourists visit New Orleans each year to escape to a world a-mingle with French culture and Southern heritage.

GoumetStation, an online provider of three & four-course gourmet dinners, has decided to bring a taste of New Orleans to any patron anywhere in the US. Deep chilled dinners arrive in an elegant sealed cooler ready to heat, plate and serve in about thirty minutes. “Not only is preparation easy and convenient” says founder Donna Lynes-Miller, “but the New Orleans style cuisine is delicious and the experience is fun and original. No detail is missed, from spicy sausage & chicken gumbo to the praline pecan cheesecake. The goal is to provide a Cajun dinner experience to remember.”

Four course Cajun menus include artisan bread like traditional French baguettes, spicy stews and gumbo, entrees like bayou peppered catfish topped with secret ya ya sauce, praline cheesecake and a packet of Viazza coffee. Three course menus include quiche Lorraine for starters, entrees like Cajun stuffed pork chop with red beans & rice, and crème brulee cheesecake. Prices range from $69.99 to $79.99 for two.

Other menu selections include Parisian, Tuscan, and Fusion. “We designed our menus to romance the regions they represent,” says Lynes-Miller. Parisian is described as sophisticated, Tuscan as family friendly, and Fusion as exotic. “Cajun is casual and fun and definitely let’s the good times roll.”

Garelick Farms Launches Over the Moon Milk Satisfying Consumer Demand for Great Tasting Milk without all the Fat

Garelick Farms introduces Over the Moon milk. For milk drinkers who have felt that choosing milk involved a compromise between the rich, creamy taste of real milk and the health benefits of less fat, this product may be a dream come true. Over the Moon milks are available in lowfat 1% milk that tastes like whole, and fat free milk that tastes like 2%

Franklin, MA (PRWEB) March 5, 2022 -- Garelick Farms introduces Over the Moon milk. For milk drinkers who have felt that choosing milk involved a compromise between the rich, creamy taste of real milk and the health benefits of less fat, this product may be a dream come true.

Over the Moon milks are available in lowfat 1% milk that tastes like whole, and fat free milk that tastes like 2%. For consumers who have resolved to have a healthier diet in 2005, Over the Moon milk means they will never have to compromise the rich, full taste of real milk to get the health benefits of lower fat milk.

“In speaking with consumers, we discovered that many whole and 2% milk drinkers are interested in drinking lower fat milk but they’ve rejected it because they are unwilling to compromise on taste”, stated Matt Samson, Marketing Director, Garelick Farms. “With Over the Moon milk, milk drinkers can finally meet both their taste and health needs. The response from consumers who’ve tried it to date has been overwhelmingly positive.”

Over the Moon milk is 100% real, fresh Garelick Farms milk from New England dairies. The rich, creamy taste comes from adding more of the calcium and protein that is naturally found in milk. In fact, Over the Moon milk has 16% more calcium and 25% more protein than regular milk.

Garelick Farms called the product “Over the Moon” because they think a great tasting, rich, creamy milk without the fat is so good, that it’s simply over the moon.

“We are so confident with Over the Moon milk, that we’ve decided to back it up with a 100% money-back guarantee,” explained Samson. “We don’t believe there is any traditional lowfat or fat free milk out there that comes close to the taste of Over the Moon milk. Over the Moon milk stands apart in this category as a wholesome, real milk with less fat and great taste.”

Over the Moon milk can be found in the specialty milk section of the dairy aisle (usually adjacent to the regular gallon and half-gallon milk section). Consumers should look for the new, bright red and blue half-gallon cartons complete with convenient re-sealable twist caps.

Over the Moon milks are sold throughout New England and upstate New York in supermarkets wherever Garelick Farms products are sold. For a complete list of retailers, to play a web game of jumping a cow over the moon, or to print a coupon good toward the purchase of Over the Moon milk, go to www.overthemoonmilk.com

Garelick Farms, headquartered in Franklin, Massachusetts, is one of the largest dairies in the northeastern United States, with a proud tradition of providing quality dairy products to New Englanders since 1931. Garelick Farms offers a broad line of products, including fresh milk and cream, flavored milk, juice, ice cream, sour cream, and cottage cheese.

Statement of Alex Avery on Advertising Standards Authority (UK) Ruling on False Organic Claims

Where are the United States Regulators?

(PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 4, 2022 -- On March 2, the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled that the Soil Association, a trade and marketing organization that both campaigns for and certifies organic food, must stop making the claim that organic food is healthier than conventionally produced food. The ASA concluded that, "in the context of a leaflet encouraging donations to help promote organic produce over that produced by industrial farming, readers were likely to interpret the claim 'Organic farming produces healthy food' to imply that organic food was healthier than non-organic food and eating organic food would have no harmful effects." The Authority noted that the Soil Association "did not show organically-produced food conveyed noticeable health benefits over and above the same food when conventionally produced or that a diet of organic food could guarantee no harmful effects." The Authority also ruled that organic is not more humane to animals, as the Soil Association has claimed

The issue of truthful and non-misleading marketing of organic foods in the U.S. deserves similar scrutiny. Extensive, publicly available research clearly indicates that U.S. consumers mistakenly believe organic foods to be healthier, more nutritious or have other qualities and claims for which there exists no scientific evidence or medical support. These beliefs are being driven by false and misleading marketing by U.S. organic products companies, their trade associations and the activist groups they fund.

Where are the U.S. regulators to protect consumers? Where are the industry and trade groups in protecting the reputation of U.S. food and agriculture against these types of marketing claims? False and misleading labeling and marketing of organic products with health, nutrition and safety-related claims is pervasive. How can we avoid the damage to the reputation of our food and agriculture industries among consumers in the U.S.? Purveyors of organic products know that fear sells, and that is what they have used time and again, attempting to impact consumer attitudes towards everything from beef to milk to apples. It is the responsibility of our government and industry standard setters to return the playing field to level and time to protect American consumers from the organic myth.

We urge the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Federal Trade Commission, U.S. Department of Agriculture and responsible food, grocery and farming organizations to address this issue so that consumers are not misled into spending more of their limited food budgets on products falsely marketed as healthier or safer, and to address the damage caused to America’s traditional non-organic farmers who’s products are falsely disparaged as less safe.

Retail Sales of Natural Pet Health Products Will More Than Double by 2009

Sales of natural pet health products totaled $45 million in 2004 and are expected to have explosive near-term growth according to findings in “Market Trends: Natural, Organic, and “Eco-Friendly” Pet Products,” a new report by market research publisher Packaged Facts.

New York, NY (PRWEB) March 4, 2022 -- Sales of natural pet health products totaled $45 million in 2004 and are expected to have explosive near-term growth according to findings in “Market Trends: Natural, Organic, and “Eco-Friendly” Pet Products,” a new report by market research publisher Packaged Facts. The report forecasts that by 2009, sales of natural pet health products will grow by 149% to $112 million in sales.

Natural pet health products include everything from botanical-based pest-control shampoos to supplements that, just as they do in humans, address stress, joint problems, oral care, and boost immune functions.

Packaged Facts reports that product marketers in this industry remain small for the most part, with most posting less than $1 million in annual sales. There are a few exceptions to the rule, of course: Larger players like Hartz Mountain, which markets general pet products, and Nutraceutical Corp., which produces human nutritional supplements, have crossed into the natural pet products arena from their mainstream product lines.

“There’s a direct correlation between consumer behavior for themselves and their pets,” said Don Montuori, Acquisitions Editor for Packaged Facts. “People are increasingly turning toward natural, organic and environmentally friendly products for themselves, and it’s a short leap to purchasing similar products for their pets.”

“Market Trends: Natural, Organic, and “Eco-Friendly” Pet Products” examines this dynamic area of the pet products industry by exploring key competitive trends in three categories—natural pet food, natural/alternative cat litter, and natural pet health products. Cross-category comparisons, unavailable from any other source, are included along with historical and future sales projections, profiles of industry players, consumer trends, and much more.

Dunedin, FL (PRWEB) March 3, 2022 –- Global/Image Nutrition announces the launch of their new, natural diet products Diet Java Max Coffee and Type 2 Health Formula Capsules. A blend of quality and carefully selected “Grade A” coffee beans combined with all-natural ingredients to promote weight loss and help fight Type 2 Diabetes, in only four weeks, Diet Java Max has already received substantial attention in both the print and news media with their original and unusual slogan “lipo-slurp-tion.” Type 2 Health Formula consists of the same quality ingredients as Diet Java Max in capsule form.

In a January 14th morning news segment on the NBC affiliate Channel 8 in Tampa Bay, Global/Image Nutrition President Ron Vassallo shared his phenomenal Diet Java Max success story with news anchor Gayle Guyardo as a response to the original article published in In Touch magazine about new and “crazy” diet trends. Mr. Vassallo shared his medical history, including medical reports spanning seven months and several “before and after” photographs.

“At the time of the interview, I had been drinking Diet Java Max for seven months,” Mr. Vassallo explained. “I was a Type 2 Diabetic and overweight with high triglycerides, high cholesterol and a very high A1c blood sugar level. By drinking two cups of this gourmet coffee every morning and one to two cups every afternoon, I had lost 64 pounds in seven months time, with an additional 10 in the last month since the interview.”

In addition, and as demonstrated by his very recent medical reports, after drinking Diet Java Max for only four months, Mr. Vassallo’s physician reduced his Diabetic prescription medication intake by one half. “My personal physician was so amazed by these results that he placed 12 of his other patients who were also Type 2 Diabetics on Diet Java Max, and those who followed the program showed similar results after four months. I am now thrilled to be living free of any Diabetic medication,” Mr. Vassallo added.

Since airing on Channel 8, Global/Image Nutrition has also introduced the Type 2 Health Formula Capsules, especially helpful to Type 2 Diabetics and containing the same quality ingredients found in Diet Java Max Coffee.

About Global/Image Nutrition
Since the airing of the Channel 8 news report on January 14, 2005, the Diet Java Max web site www.globalnutra.com has received over 25,000 hits, with many new customers and friends reporting weight loss, lost inches and appetite suppression by using Diet Java Max.

Soy Food Craze Explodes to Chocolate

Belle Harbor, NY (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 2, 2022 -- ChocoSoy® (www.chocosoy.com) has announced today the retail availability of its first line of 100% Vegan, Soy-Milk Chocolate products for the US market. Chocosoy® is a delicious chocolate made from non-GMO soy milk. ChocoSoy® was developed to provide a delightful delicacy for those who enjoy the sweeter things in life, but still want or need to pursue a healthy lifestyle.

The product was formulated for the US market by Yehuda Fruchter, whose company, Envoy Global, Inc., manages the e-commerce business for Glenn Foods, Inc. (www.glennys.com), makers of the popular Glenny’s Soy Crisps. “My experience with Glenny´s introduced me to the value and demand for soy products in the US,” explains Yehuda Fruchter, founder of ChocoSoy®. “My interest peaked when I discovered that my 2-year old cousin, Arad, could not eat regular milk chocolate due to his allergies and lactose-free diet. I set out on a mission to create a line of chocolate, that tasted like real milk chocolate, but that my cousin could enjoy despite his various food allergies.”

Yehuda’s quest has paid off. ChocoSoy®´s first product, is a delicious chocolate nugget that provides pure bliss to your senses and a rich amount of healthy soy isoflavones for your heart and bones. ChocoSoy® is 100% Vegan, Lactose-Free, Gluten-Free, and made with organic sugar (non-bone char refined). It is beautifully packaged in environmentally-friendly boxes and fastened with Buriti Palm from Brazil. What does two-year old Arad have to say about ChocoSoy®? “Well, he does not speak much yet,” answered Mr. Fruchter, “all I know is that he eats about 10 ChocoSoy® ´s a day and I´m now his favorite cousin.”

Consumers are already praising the taste and quality of ChocoSoy®. “I was amazed that there was no trace of a soy taste from your ChocoSoy® chocolates. They are rich, decadent, and very reminiscent of milk chocolate," rejoices Mimi Clark, Vegan Cooking Instructor, Fairfax Station, VA. "I just received ChocoSoy® and I must tell you they are by far the most delicious candy I have had in a long time. I personally can't eat regular chocolate, but these set fine with me. Thank You!," says Alfina Redkoles of New Jersey.

ChocoSoy® is also being highly recommended by registered dieticians. "For those who cannot or choose not to eat milk chocolate, ChocoSoy® is a great alternative”, says Dina Aronson, Registered Dietitian and Author of “The Food Allergy Survival Guide”. According to the Nutrition TwinsTM, , Lyssie and Tammy Lakatos, authors of the “Fire Up Your Metabolism”, “ChocoSoy® looks and tastes awesome and it is the perfect way to quench a sweet tooth craving in only 50 calories!”

Inpro/Seal Expands Sealing System Product Line for Powder and Bulk Applications

Articulating Seal that Handles Shaft Misalignment to Keep Equipment Running Longer
Inpro/Seal has introduced their Articulating Air Mizer™-, PS a sealing system developed to positively seal equipment where dry particulates, powders and bulk solids are handled, processed, packaged and stored. Once installed, the system helps contain powders, abrasives, liquids and toxic vapors. In addition, it handles extreme shaft misalignment and deflection, common in these kinds of applications to provide a seal that traditional methods simply cannot attain. A unique design feature uses a solid wall of air that functions as a barrier for contamination and works to retain product where it should be - in the equipment. The highest levels of performance are assured by virtue of an inherent non-contact design feature that avoids direct egress of the particulate material.

Rock Island, IL (PRWEB) March 2, 2022 -- Building on the ongoing success of their ability to positively seal equipment in dry powder and bulk process applications, Inpro/Seal has introduced their Articulating Air Mizer™-, PS sealing system.

Two Sealing Solutions
With this system Inpro/Seal now offers two sealing solutions for the containment of powders, abrasives, liquids and toxic vapors: the Air Mizer™-PS and the Articulating Air Mizer™- PS, a sealing system with upgraded design features.

Both were developed for use on equipment where dry particulates, powders and bulk solids are handled, processed, packaged and stored. Examples include: screw conveyors, gate valves, feeders, mixers, blenders, gates, clinker grinders, bucket elevators, diverters, scales, bagging machines, dust collectors, discharges, classifiers, screens, extruders, separators, shredders, sifters, metal detectors, pulverizers, crushers, coolers, augers, transfer pumps, fillers and similar dry powder and bulk processing machinery.

Result Of Continuous R & D
The result of direct customer request, input and feedback, continuous R&D; and extensive field testing and trials, the Articulated Air Mizer-PS has all the features of the original Air Mizer™-PS and adds the ability to handle extreme shaft misalignment and deflection, common in these kinds of applications to provide a seal that traditional methods simply cannot attain.

Ineffective Sealing Methods
Before the advent of the Articulated Air Mizer-PS end users had to deal with sealing methods that did not last because of shaft runout. Mechanical seals work on a contact basis and are subject to excess wear on the seal faces as they make contact. Seal faces have been known to wear out in as little as 3,000 hours.

Fibrous packings are also subject to wear and short lifetimes from runout where packing in the stuffing boxes compress and create a leak path. Packing can soften to the point where powder can leak to the outside, causing environmental problems. Tightening may renew the seal, but only for a relatively short period of time.

Successful Product At Heart Of Air Miser Seal
To counter, Inpro/Seal took their bearing isolator, a compound labyrinth bearing protection device, that they invented (and patented) in 1977 and modified it for use with dry particulates, powders and bulk solids.

A major innovation includes a unique design feature that uses a solid wall of air that functions as a barrier for contamination and works to retain product where it should be - in the equipment. The highest levels of performance are assured by virtue of an inherent non-contact design feature that avoids direct egress of the particulate material.

Latest In Non-Contact Technology
According to David C. Orlowski, President of Inpro/Seal and the holder of some 40 related patents, “Realizing the importance of what production continuity and what lost product can mean to the bottom line, several years ago, we introduced our Air Mizer Sealing System. This system has proven to help end users boost equipment reliability, reduce costs, extend sealing efficiencies and increase bottom line results, without equipment modification.”

Orlowski continued, “As time went on, more and more end users came to us with the same need. Beside the other problems they were having with contact seals, shaft deflection, run-out and misalignment was also causing seal faces to wear out and equipment to break down on a too rapid basis. Angular misalignment and mounting conditions, in particular, were hard to deal with.”

Orlowski concluded, “To solve this problem, working closely with our customers, our R & D people developed the Articulating Air Mizer™-PS, a sealing system that uses the latest in non-contacting technology with an air purge that accepts radial and angular shaft runout up to ¼”. Shaft diameters from ½ in - 36 in. No other sealing mechanism can do this.”-

No Equipment Modification, Easy to Install
The Articulating Air Mizer™-PS, sealing system is custom-engineered to suit individual applications. It is easy to install as it conforms to existing clearances, boltholes and patterns for bearings and/or stuffing boxes. Split designs allow for installation directly on the shaft without removal.

More Benefits
Additional benefits include: lower maintenance costs, reduction in lost product, unscheduled downtime virtually eliminated and meet regulatory needs. As with all other Inpro/Seal products same day shipping is available.

About Inpro/Seal
Inpro/Seal Company is the originator and the world’s number one manufacturer of bearing isolators, used to protect motor and pump bearings, machine tool spindles, turbines, fans, gear boxes, paper machine rolls and many other types of rotating equipment. Additional applications include the sealing, handling, processing, packing and storage of dry particulates, powders and bulk solids.

Over one and one half million of Inpro/Seal’s original bearing isolator designs are in operation in process plants worldwide, where end users continue to report significantly reduced operating costs with increased productivity and reliability. Documented cases show that a plant can more than double the mean-time-between failure (MTBF) and reduce maintenance costs by at least half, with users reporting an extremely high ROI.

As the recognized global leader in bearing isolator technology, Inpro products are marketed to the aerospace, automotive, petroleum, refining, nuclear, power generation, metalworking, food processing, grain processing, chemical, water, wastewater treatment, metalworking, hydrocarbon processing, HVAC, pulp and paper, mining, mineral, ore processing and general industrial markets.

Hot from the Coffee Press: Save Hundreds of Dollars on Your Daily Cup of Gourmet Coffee

To celebrate its upcoming one-year anniversary, CoffeeFirst LLC is introducing a new distributor plan this week. This plan allows people to receive fresh roasted gourmet coffee for years, in return for a one-time payment.

Jackson, TN (PRWEB) March 2, 2022 — To celebrate its upcoming one-year anniversary, CoffeeFirst LLC is implementing a new type of distributor plan this week that could change the coffee business. By paying once, customers will get the opportunity to receive fresh roasted gourmet coffees and teas for years to come. With coffee bars charging up to $3 for gourmet coffee drinks, savings on “your daily cup” could be adding up quickly.

As people worldwide have been warming up to the taste of fresh roasted gourmet coffees, retail prices have soared. With the rise of major chains of coffee outlets, people have grown accustomed to paying over $2 for what used to be a simple breakfast drink. It’s not surprising that in the past years we have seen a steady rise in home brewing of gourmet & specialty coffees. Hundreds of dollars can be saved by brewing your own fresh cup at home, instead of stopping by a specialty coffee outlet on your way to the office.

Brewing a flavorful cup of coffee is no longer reserved to those who can afford to buy a top-of-the-range espresso machine. Although a good espresso machine will certainly brew a better coffee, the secret for a great cup of coffee really is hidden in the quality and freshness of the coffee beans. Everyone can now purchase specialty gourmet coffee beans that are roasted fresh the moment you order. Even with a regular coffee maker these could be turned into a flavorful brew.

CoffeeFirst is expected to launch its new distributor plans later this week. With the new plan, distributors can receive gourmet coffee for years to come, in return for a one-time payment.

For additional information Bart van Bakel

About CoffeeFirst, LLC
CoffeeFirst, LLC has been selling gourmet coffees from around the world since 2004. All Coffees are roasted fresh when you order and shipped directly to your home.

With the CoffeeFirst business opportunity, distributors are offered a complete home business solution where average people can earn money from selling gourmet coffees & teas, without having to pay monthly fees.

Says Maria Bailey, founder of Bluesuitmom.com, "Pouring one bowl of cereal in the morning and taking five minutes each day to sit down with your kids can help you achieve multiple goals which can seem overwhelming when added to an already full schedule. Cereal provides a simple way for families to start the day together and for mom to help her family work toward getting the recommended daily allowance of vitamins and minerals. Making it fun for the whole family, each person’s one of a kind painted bowl and mixing varieties of cereal to combine different flavors, shapes and textures will add a special element to the morning tradition.

23rd Annual Napkin Art Contest Seeks Submissions

The 23rd Annual Napkin Art Contest sponsored by Mama's Royal Cafe in Oakland, CA is seeking submissions and will award a top prize of $300 to the winner.

Oakland, CA (PRWEB) March 2, 2022 -- Ever doodle on a napkin? We all have, but “Napkin Art” is more than doodles at Mama’s Royal Cafe in Oakland, California. “Twenty-three years ago I started collecting the artistic napkin doodles left behind at the cafe,” said Mama’s owner George Marino. “They were just too creative to throw out.”

According to Marino many came from the artists in the community. Soon after he decided to give incentive to this creativity by sponsoring a napkin art contest. Now 23 years and 22 contests later the cafe has more than a thousand pieces in its napkin art collection, including work by local artists Claire Cotts, Julia L. Kay, Mark Ziemann and Michele Montez. The collection also includes hand painted napkins from the 1890's by the San Jose Parlor of The Daughters of the Golden West.

Now it’s time for the 23rd annual competition and Marino expects over two hundred new submissions. “Most of the entries still come from the Bay Area”, he says, “but the contest has received entries from as far away as New England and Japan.” Different artists judge the contest each year. Judges have included accomplished artists such as Raymond Saunders, Mike Henderson, Jerald Silva, Don Farnsworth, and Louise Stanley.

Amateur, student and professional artists are all encouraged to enter. According to Marino, “The absorbency and fragility of paper napkins are an equal challenge to everyone”. Last years winners are currently on display at the cafe. This year’s contest is accepting submissions through the end of March. Judging takes place soon after with awards announced on April 15th.

1st prize $300, 2nd $150, 3rd $75, (25) honorable mentions - breakfast or lunch for 2 at Mama's.

Contest Rules:
1. Any paper napkin can be used.
2. Send entries to: 23rd Annual Napkin Art Contest, Mama’s Royal Cafe, 4012 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94611
3. Entries must be received by March 31, 2005.
4. Limit 5 entries per person.
5. Decisions of judges final.
6. All entries become property of Mama’s Royal Cafe.

Mama’s Royal Cafe, adjacent to Piedmont, Rockridge and Berkeley, has been dishing-up scrumptious breakfast and lunch since 1974. The cafe has received "best" awards from San Francisco Focus, East Bay Express, Bay Guardian, S F Magazine and the S F Chronicle. The great food is an inspiration for loyal patrons and napkin artists too.

Digital pictures of past napkin art & Mama’s Royal Café cafe are available upon request.

George Marino, Mama’s owner and founder of the Napkin Art Contest, is available for interviews.

Lipo-Slurp-Tion

Great new diet product with all-natural ingredients delivered in gourmet coffee or available in capusule form to help fight weight loss and/or Type 2 Diabetes.

(PRWEB) March 2, 2022 -- On January 14, 2022 Gayle Guyardo [news anchor] from the Channel 8 [NBC affiliate] morning news show, did a feature story on a local Tampa Bay company that manufactures and sells Diet Java Max Coffee. An article about various types of diet programs used around the country was recently published in, “In Touch” magazine. The magazine article “highlighted” a particular slogan that was used by this local Tampa Bay Company, in conjunction with their “Diet Java Max Coffee.” The slogan that this company used was, “Lipo-slurp-tion,” which “In Touch” magazine listed under the heading of “crazy diets.” They say that sometimes-bad press is also good press? This magazine published an article about diets/products that they obviously knew nothing about.

Channel 8 made a decision to run the story about this local company that used a funny “slogan” called “Lipo-slurp-tion.” Gayle Guyardo, who is one of the popular local morning show anchors in Tampa Bay area, talked about a local man, who had been using the Diet Java Max Coffee for 7 months at the time of the interview. This individual was also a Type 2 Diabetic, who was overweight, high triglycerides, high cholesterol, and had a very high A1c blood sugar level. Not too uncommon for many people these days, who need to make some lifestyle changes in their daily life?

Channel 8 was given a personal medical report on this individual before using the Diet Java Max Coffee and then given the most recent medical results that were taken just two days before the interview took place. Channel 8 was also given some before and after pictures of this individual. The pictures and the reports combined showed that without a doubt, that the Diet Java Max Coffee product was certainly not a “crazy diet.”

The viewer was informed that by drinking two cups of this great tasting gourmet coffee every morning and one to two cups every afternoon that this individual had already lost 64 pounds in 7 months time. Additional results, demonstrated by medical reports, showed that after only four months of drinking this Diet Coffee, this individual was placed on “one half” of his prescribed Diabetic medicine. His personal physician [Dr. Ronald Fernandez] was so amazed by these results that he placed 12 other patients, who were also Type 2 Diabetics, on Diet Java Max. The patients who carefully followed the directions of this product showed similar results after 4 months of drinking Diet Java Max Coffee.

If this company were to select a new slogan it could read, “What’s In A Cup?” The coffee beans that are used in Diet Java Max are “Grade A” quality beans and are carefully selected. The all-natural ingredients that are carefully blended into this gourmet coffee suggest that this proprietary blend of ingredients has a pronounced benefit to healthy solutions for weight loss and to help fight Type 2 Diabetes. Diet Java Max Coffee and the new Type 2 Health Formula Capsules, which have just been introduced, are manufactured in a FDA inspected plant located in Clearwater, Florida.

Since the airing of the Channel 8 news report, on January 14, 2005, the Diet Java Max web site [www.globalnutra.com] has received over 25,000 hits from interested people, who also want to know what “Lipo-Slurp-Tion” is all about? Diet Java Max Coffee is now four weeks old since its introduction on Channel 8. Since airing on Channel 8, the manufacturer of Diet Java Max has introduced their new “Type 2 Health Formula Capsules.” These new capsules use same the quality ingredients that are used in the Diet Java Max Coffee. The new capsule formula is especially helpful to Type 2 Diabetics. The individual interviewed on Channel 8, who originally lost 64 pounds, has now lost a total of 74 pounds. An additional 10 pounds has been lost since January 14, 2005, and this individual is now completely off of any Diabetic prescribed medicine.

This product really works! I am the individual who is very happy to report on my personal results of fighting weight gain and Type 2 Diabetes. The positive phone calls and e-mail from new friends and customers that have already seen immediate results from using Diet Java Max has been very exciting! Weight loss, inches lost, and appetite suppressed has been reported by many people already using Diet Java Max Coffee, who are also excited about this “crazy diet” that uses “Lipo-Slurp-Tion” to get results. Our company goal is to provide customers with products that give an incentive to continue on a personal journey to look and feel better without taking prescribed medicine.
