Snack Spotlight: Hillshire Snacking Wine Infused Salame With Natural White Cheddar Cheese

 

 

WINE-INFUSED SALAME WITH NATURAL WHITE CHEDDAR CHEESE

 

 

WINE-INFUSED SALAME

The spice of a perfectly cured salame offset by the bite of wine infusion and garlic notes partners best with cheese and toasted rounds.

NATURAL WHITE CHEDDAR CHEESE

The sharpness of this natural cheddar rounds out the salame’s richness for a balanced pairing.

 

PERFECT PAIRING

A fruity Sauvignon Blanc with nectarines, peaches and other stone fruit matches the flavor of the wine used in the salame.

Crowdfunding Spotlight: ZEGO Allergy Free Snack Bars

 

New ZEGO Launch Video from ZEGO on Vimeo.

 

OUR PASSION, OUR PRODUCT

ZEGO is passionate about making allergy-free snacks that are nutritious and delicious to support the growing minds of children, the performance of athletes, the dedication of parents, and the health of everyone!

Food allergies are rising dramatically according to government reports, and parents, kids, and adults need a healthy snack that tastes great and won’t trigger these allergies or cause other problems.

We call ZEGO “A HIGHER BAR” because it meets these needs and tastes better than other energy bars on the market. It’s an amazing combination of great taste and nutrition with none of today’s top allergens.

INGREDIENTS & NUTRITION

nutrition

 

What ZEGOs DO have:

Lots of protein – 10 grams/bar
Not a lot of sugar
All natural ingredients
Delicious flavor
Great chewy texture with a bit of crunch

What ZEGOs DON'T have: (what makes us "ALLERGY-FREE")

NO Peanuts or Tree Nuts
NO Gluten
NO Dairy
NO Soy
And NO GMO’s or High Fructose Corn Syrup

And, we chose a superfood, SUNFLOWER SEEDS, as ZEGO’s main ingredient because they:

Deliver lots of antioxidants & vitamins
Boost your immune system and protect your heart
Increase you energy by helping move oxygen into your red blood cells
Provide high quality protein, which strengthens muscles, bones, and memory

ZEGO’s other healthy ingredients, like brown rice and quinoa, are high in calcium, iron, and magnesium to help further strengthen your bones, blood, and immune system. And, our crunchy cacao nibs are high in fiber and potassium, and have more health-promoting antioxidant catechins than green tea!

ZEGOs make being healthier easier for everyone. And, they come in 2 delicious flavors, Chocolate, which has a rich, chewy brownie flavor & Sunflower, with a hint of caramel. Recommend them to all your friends!

ZEGO DONATES 20% of PROFITS

At ZEGO, we also have a mission to make it easier for everyone to eat healthy food, especially kids in families with low incomes.

We created ZEGO, in part, to help fund the work of Campaign for Better Nutrition - an organization founded by Colleen to improve nutrition for low-income children. We donate 20% of ZEGO’s profits to support that work.


WHY ARE ZEGOs ALLERGY-FREE?

More and more children and adults are allergic, intolerant, or choosing to avoid foods that have been staples of our diets in the past. Here are just some of the reports documenting what's behind this trend:

One-in-three adults are avoiding gluten. (2013 study, NDP Group)

75% of U.S. adults are lactose intolerant. (2011, National Institutes of Health)

90% of the food allergies come from 8 foods: peanuts, tree nuts, gluten, dairy, egg, soy, fish, and shellfish. (2013, www.foodallergy.org) ZEGO has NONE of these allergens!

18% increase in food allergies occurred from 1997 to 2007. (2008, Center for Disease Control)

Two children in every classroom have food allergies. (www.foodallergy.org)

Soy is high in phyto-estrogens and eating too much can disrupt your natural hormones. (Kaayla, The Whole Soy Story)

Whew, all this makes finding a healthy snack on-the-go really challenging for a LOT of people. Luckily, the challenge just got easier thanks to ZEGO. Enjoy ZEGOs yourself and share them with confidence.

HIGH PROTEIN-TO-SUGAR RATIO

If you compare ZEGO's nutrition label to that of other energy bars, you'll see we pack in a lot of protein without a lot of sugar. We worked hard to develop a tasty bar with this high protein-to-sugar ratio. We provide a combination of sunflower seed, rice and pea protein, because protein is so important for muscles and bones as well as for building the pathways necessary for forming long-term memories.

Too much sugar, on the other hand, can spike and crash your energy and, over time, can contribute to obesity and other metabolic diseases. So, we limit and balance our sugars to provide just enough sweetness to make ZEGOs delicious but not enough to challenge your pancreas with a big insulin surge.


MANUFACTURING ALLERGEN INFORMATION

ZEGOs are made without peanuts, treenuts, dairy, wheat, soy, gluten, oats, corn or egg. ZEGO bars are tested post-production to guarantee gluten-free certification.

ZEGO’s manufacturer maintains a wheat-free facility, but makes other products that contain tree nuts, soy, peanut, milk, and egg. They perform a careful and thorough allergen cleanout before they make ZEGOs but cross-contamination is possible.

Why snacking at night is bad for you

The body tends to turn more food into fat at night, while turning it into fuel during the day.

Eating that bowl of Cocoa Puffs at night may be much worse than having it in the morning. The body tends to turn more of that food into fat at night, while turning it into fuel during the day, new research suggests.
The study, published yesterday (Feb. 21) in the journal Current Biology, found that mice's ability to regulate their blood sugar varied throughout the day. In addition, disrupting their circadian clock, which signals sleep and wakefulness among other things to the body, caused them to put on more fat.
The findings could explain why night-shift workers are more prone to diabetes and obesity.
"Disrupting your biological clock leads to a disruption of metabolism such that there's more of a tendency to put on fat," even with the same amount of caloric intake or diet, said study co-author Carl Johnson, a chronobiologist at Vanderbilt University. "It's not only what you eat but when you eat it that's important."

Curry Powder’s Golden Ingredient

 

What do a plankton-feeding fish from Australia, , and explosive corn have in common? They may play a starring role in 2012 American food trends, according to food and nutrition forecasters at Publicis Consultants USA.

"Economic circumstances are prompting more than the usual degree of change in the highly adaptable food and beverage business, with higher food costs and budget-minded consumers driving innovation," says Steve Bryant, president of Publicis Consultants USA, who also pointed to digital influences. "The table setting has changed," adds Bryant. "It's now knife, fork, spoon and smartphone."

Top 12 Food & Nutrition Trends for 2012
1. Perpetual Snacking
Smaller portions and mini-bites will invade restaurant menus and grocery stores.
2. Global Food Mash-Up
Millennials will "travel the world" through eating and drinking inexpensive culturally mixed foods.
3. The Connected Table
Geo-targeting apps, recipe commenting, crowd-sourced restaurant reviews and tweets between bites will mean you're never alone.
4. Wine Cred
Desiring fresh value-priced experiences, consumers will discover and share wines from lesser known growing regions.
5. Pop-ular Popcorn
Popcorn is healthful, convenient, natural, versatile and affordable.
6. In-Your-Face Nutrition
Front-of-pack labeling, nutrition disclosure on menus and calorie counting mobile apps will make nutrition messaging hard to escape.
7. Grow-it, Raise-it, Pick-it, Eat-it
From backyard beehives, chicken coops and heirloom veggie gardens to home brewing and at-home canning, hyper-local will come home.
8. Dining In Goes Beyond Comfort
New supermarket products and chef-inspired tools and techniques will help take in-home dining beyond traditional comfort fare.
9. Barramundi, the Next Sustainable Seafood
This Australian import's delicate flaky flesh is extremely low in toxin levels, but full of heart and brain-healthy omega-3s. Expect it on menus and then in packaged foods.
10. Turmeric, the Real "Spice of Life"
Expect to see a lot of this bright yellow spice, which contains high levels of antioxidants and touts anti-inflammatory properties.
11. A Health and Wellness Gender Gap Grows
Women will continue to take active strides to improve their health by eating healthy and staying active. Men will lag further behind.
12. Tell Me What I Can Eat, Not What I Can't!
An overload of hype will lead to a positive tone in messaging as consumers will seek delicious products that proactively enhance health and wellness.
