fip_logo_hiresThey are telling me Monday for our launch of Phase 2 of A Flash in the Pan. Breath held, fingers crossed. 

Happy Friday everyone.

From Reuters, We have way too much salt in our diets. Think about all the processed and fast foods that are consumed in this country and you are thinking about sodium. One of the primary preservatives used for shelf life of food products is sodium or sodium deriveted chemicals.

The Need to Knead-From the ChicagoTribune. This is a good article on why and how to develop gluten for the perfect bread.

Symrise is committed to organic food and fragrance control. From Food Nav. I am glad they are not giving up on organics because the markets are slowing down. They will be much happier in the long run if they stay this course.

Also for Food Nav, The fight is on for the antibiotic bill and food safety issue. What is the truth? The farmers have been using these for over 40 years but it has also made it possible to squash a lot of cattle into one small area. Cancer has also been on the rise for the last 40 years but it may not have any connection. Still worth looking into.

Low sugar vegetable juices are on their way for Diabetics. From Health Day

Don’t drink your tea too hot. From Reuters, a cupp of pipping hot tea may cause throat cancer. I drink tea almost every day so I may need to watch this. 

Have a great weekend and thanks for reading.
