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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

American Hemp Processing To Roll Out Mobile Extraction Units

Sacramento, California, 2019-Dec-10 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — American Hemp Processing (AHP) is excited to announce the design completion of their Mobile Hemp Extraction Unit (MEHU). This is a key step in AHP’s expansion to increase production to 400,000lbs of hemp per month that will be completed 1st quarter 2020. The mobility of the MEHU reduces overall processing costs, mitigates many of the risks associated to transportation, and increases transparency with farmers.

The MHEU units bring significant benefits to the farmer from both a financial and risk mitigation perspective. “Most hemp farms are not close to processing facilities. Transportation is a large cost and increases the risk of degradation and contamination. On top of that, farmers still have to deal with legal issues in states that aren’t familiar with hemp and mistake it for marijuana,” says Andrew Alvarez Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer “Additionally, it increases transparency with farmers and helps educate them along the way to build synergistic relationships”.

“The design of the MHEU was Phase 2 of our strategy,” says Shick Park Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer, “Phase 1 was developing a scalable extraction and remediation process enabling us to create high quality and compliant CBD oil, and Phase 3 is the roll-out of the mobile extraction units on to farms fall of 2020.”

“This caps off a 12 month design process by our engineers and now we go to the assembly phase. These units will take approximately 120 days each to build, and we plan to initially build 3,” says Co-Founder and CEO Tom Richardson. “This has been a very rewarding journey for us, from meeting farmers all over the country, to government legislators, to fine tuning the extraction process, to meeting other processors and sharing ideas, we feel very confident about the Cannabinoid Sector business.”

First of Kind Sports Drink – Break Through for Athletes

“A beverage that was developed with “natural” ingredients accelerates an athlete’s recovery from workouts, practices and competitions”

 

Ridgefield, WA, October 28, 2014 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — 2MAC, created by an athlete 60 years young, uses natural ingredients to restore the energy and hydration generators depleted during high intensity competition or practice. The greatest chapter in this story may be that there are no chemicals required to achieve this result.

“We were tired of using sugary, salty, artificial tasting drinks as a recovery beverage after a workout. As athletes we wanted something that really did taste great, contained no artificial additives and restored the amino acids, antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals we burned while exercising. The drinks on the market were missing the big picture as they were too narrowly focused on remedies for one or two segments of this equation. It was very frustrating,” said development director, Mike McDaniel at 2MAC’s Vancouver, Washington headquarters.

The body does not restore these elements on its own, they must be consumed. The longer a person waits to recharge their body the longer their recovery time will be. Waiting to resupply lost nutrients reduces the benefits from a workout or extends the recovery time from an event. While consuming water or a high sugar and salt sports drink will cure a roaring thirst, that alone will not remedy the more important issue of depleted nutrients and body reserves. These elements must be replaced to rejuvenate muscles and energy.

“2MAC’s formulas, which are characterized by a great taste profile, are designed to be absorbed rapidly into an athlete’s system, reduce muscle inflammation and oxidative stress while minimizing insulin release. To effectively reverse the effects of physical stress, 2MAC should consumed during, or within 30 minutes of ending, the exercise period,” McDaniel stated.

Introducing 2MAC to a sports drink market that is defined by long entrenched brands is a challenging task. That is why 2MAC has decided to seek funding in two stages through the Kickstarter process which features an all or nothing model. Stage one is designed to verify taste demographics while a stage two Kickstarter campaign will be utilized to launch a nationwide rollout of the product. Be sure to follow us at the following Kickstarter link. Those who pledge will be among the first to experience the benefits of this natural solution to dehydration and nutrient loss.

New ALL BUT GLUTEN™ Baked Goods Launches During Celiac Awareness Month for Canadians on a Gluten-Free Diet

May is Celiac Awareness Month and, just days after first appearing on the shelves of major Canadian retailers, new All But Gluten™ baked goods are receiving rave reviews from consumers following a gluten-free diet. These great tasting products were created by the talented product development team at Weston Bakeries in collaboration with respected nutrition experts and are manufactured in a dedicated gluten-free facility. They meet Health Canada’s gluten-free regulations and are certified by the Canadian Celiac Association’s Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP). All But Gluten™, is one of the first brands to bear the GFCP mark, making it easier for consumers to identify safe gluten-free products.

All But Gluten™ products are also dairy-free and Kosher.

Safety, taste and nutrition are the three pillars of the All But Gluten™ brand. “The breads, focaccias, pizza shells and muffins are enriched with vitamins and minerals and are a source of fibre,” says Shelley Case, registered dietitian, international celiac disease expert and consulting spokesperson for All But Gluten™. “This is an important feature of All But Gluten™ because many gluten-free products on the market are not enriched and often lower in iron, B vitamins and fibre,” states Case.

Unlike most gluten-free baked goods, All But Gluten™ can be found in the fresh bakery section, not the frozen section of major Canadian retailers. Consumers following a gluten-free diet really miss delicious baked products and now they can stroll down the aisles that were previously off limits. The All But Gluten ™ brand invites consumers to ‘Rekindle your love of baked goods.’

The line includes Whole Grain Loaf, Cinnamon Raisin Loaf, Sliced White Loaf, Roasted Onion Focaccia, Rosemary Focaccia, Plain Pizza Shells, Carrot Raisin Morning Muffins, Mini Brownies and Coconut Macaroons.

Smoking, Obesity And Lack Of Activity Named As Global Killers

Research published in leading medical journal The Lancet suggests that a lack of exercise can be as big a killer as obesity and smoking.

According to the study, approximately one third of adults do not do a healthy amount of exercise, and it is suggested that this could be causing 5.3 million deaths worldwide each year – the equivalent of one in ten deaths – from related illnesses such as breast cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

Nutritionist Caron Leckie, who works for the UK’s largest provider of chef prepared meals and delivered diets, Diet Chef, comments: “In my experience the weather has a big impact on activity levels, certainly in the UK, and many people use it as an excuse to stay indoors and watch television, rather than getting out and about.

“In addition to this, thousands of our customers have jobs which see them sitting down at a desk for up to nine hours each day. It is logical that this sedentary lifestyle can be conducive to obesity.”

Ms Leckie also added that Diet Chef is “working hard to help people to lose weight with our calorie-controlled diet” and that as a company they are also “working closely with a personal trainer to offer advice and tips on how to move more, no matter what your age, weight or health status.”

It is recommended that adults should do a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week, this equates to just over 20 minutes per day.

According to a report by the BBC, “researchers said the problem was now so bad it should be treated as a pandemic”.

Ms Leckie’s top tips for motivation to exercise include:
1. Add An Activity
2. Try Something Different
3. Find a Positive Each Week
4. Take up a Hobby

Diet Chef to sponsor ITV Daybreak’s ‘Step into Summer’ Programme

Weight loss diet plan provider Diet Chef has announced that it will be sponsoring the ITV Daybreak ‘Step into Summer’ programme this month.

From Monday 25th June 2012 to Friday 29th June 2012 Diet Chef will be giving the Step into Summer campaign its seal of approval. As the creator of one of the most successful calorie controlled meal plans in the UK, Diet Chef recognises that weight loss efforts are much more successful with a combination of diet and exercise, and so will be lending ITV Daybreak’s Step into Summer a helping hand.

Diet Chef has sponsored the ITV Daybreak’s diet initiatives in the past and is happy to be doing so again for 2012. Step into Summer will contain a range of hints and tips for diet and exercise, helping those that appear on the show and viewers at home to fight the battle of the bulge this June and achieve their beach body.

ITV Daybreak’s Step into Summer programme will feature a group of mums who will receive key fitness hints and tips to help them and viewers of the show to shape up for summer. The live show will also include a number of healthy food ideas that viewers can pick up on to make appropriate changes to their eating habits throughout the summer.

Diet Chef’s marketing director, Liz Dale, said: “Diet Chef is a specially designed calorie controlled meal plan that has helped thousands of men and women to achieve their weight loss goals since the company was originally founded.

“In total, we have assisted over 70,000 customers throughout the UK, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and we have also branched out into the German market. We are proud to be sponsoring ITV Daybreak’s Step into Summer project in an effort to help people to get to and maintain a healthy weight.”

Diet Chef was founded by Kevin Dorren as a way to bring affordable and delicious diet foods to the UK public. Mr Dorren recognised the difficulties associated with dieting when going it alone and realised how much easier it would be if dieters had their own personal chef to prepare portioned meals that were calorie controlled and healthy.
