About Barnana

ON A HOT SUMMER DAY IN 1981, ARCHITECT JOAO SUPLICY TOOK HOME A LARGE BROKEN SKYLIGHT FROM A CONSTRUCTION PROJECT IN THE HILLS OF CURITIBA, BRASIL. SUPLICY WOKE THE NEXT MORNING AND DISCOVERED THAT ALL THE GRASS BENEATH THE SKYLIGHT HAD DIED. THIS SIMPLE, UNINTENTIONAL EXPERIMENT SPARKED AN IDEA THAT STARTED AS A PERSONAL HOBBY AND CONTINUED ON AS A FAMILY TRADITION.

FROM THIS SIMPLE REVELATION, JOAO CONSTRUCTED A NATURAL DEHYDRATOR AND TESTED IT WITH FRESH, PEELED BANANAS. AFTER JUST FIVE DAYS HE HAD RAW, ORGANIC, DEHYDRATED BANANAS THAT TASTED SWEET AND LASTED FOR MONTHS. TO THEIR DELIGHT, JOAO SHARED THE ORGANIC BANANAS WITH HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS, BUT PERHAPS THE BIGGEST FAN OF ALL WAS HIS ELDEST SON, CAUE. IN 2001, CAUE RELOCATED TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA TO COMMENCE HIS CAREER AS A PROFESSIONAL TRIATHLETE. THE SUPLICY FAMILY TRADITION OF CREATING ORGANIC CHEWY BANANAS CARRIED ON, AS HE SHARED THE BANANA SUPERFOOD WITH HIS FRIENDS AND FELLOW ATHLETES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. Read More

Confectionary Spotlight: Hi-Chew Goes Tropical with the Launch of New Kiwi Flavor

 

Real Ripe Kiwi Fruit Flavor Gives Consumers a Flavorful Escape

 

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Morinaga America, Inc. today introduced Hi-Chew Kiwi, the newest product to join the rapidly expanding U.S. Hi-Chew portfolio. With the winter's seasonal chill showing no signs of warming up, Kiwi is giving fans a taste of the tropics, packing tart and juicy kiwi flavor into a perfectly chewy bite.

Made with real fruit juices and purees, Hi-Chew Kiwi delivers the same vibrant color and fresh flavor found in kiwis but with the sensationally chewy texture Hi-Chew fans have come to love. Real chia seeds are showcased in each individually wrapped chew, mimicking the texture and color of actual kiwi seeds, while the sweet, ripe flavor tingles the tongue. Refreshingly sweet with a hint of citrus, Kiwi gives Hi-Chew fans the chance to savor a tropical treat and mentally escape to sunny fun-filled days.

"Our fan base is always eager to see what new flavors Hi-Chew will come out with next," said Mr. Norio Otsuki, Chief Operating Officer of Morinaga America, Inc. "Our new Kiwi flavor delivers both the look and taste of fresh kiwi fruit, exciting taste buds with bursts of flavor on-the-go."

What is the “caveman diet”?
The caveman diet is a holistic way of eating based on the principle that humans “grew up” on certain kinds of foods (e.g., meat, vegetables, fruit & nuts) and that our bodies are therefore best able to digest and enjoy these kinds of foods, rather than ones that have been recently introduced into the human diet (like grains and dairy).

 

 

What are the ingredients of Caveman Cookies?
Original Caveman Cookies: honey, almond meal, walnuts, raisins, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon.
Tropical Caveman Cookies: almond meal, honey, unsulfured coconut, macadamia nuts, ginger.
Alpine Caveman Cookies: honey, hazelnut meal, almond meal, toasted ground carob.
Rainforest Caveman Cookies: honey, almond meal, brazil nut meal, chopped almonds, dried cherries (cherries, sunflower oil), nutmeg, cayenne pepper.
New World Caveman Cookies: maple syrup, honey, almond meal, pecan meal, dried cranberries (cranberries, apple juice concentrate, sunflower oil), pumpkin seeds, spices.
 

About the Company
Here at the Caveman Bakery, we’re passionate about all-natural foods, with ingredients that you can actually pronounce, and which your great, great, great, great ancestors could have enjoyed with you!

We also believe in eating food that tastes good. At the Caveman Bakery, we know that healthful, but great-tasting desserts are possible because we’ve been baking our cookies with great success for family and friends for the past hundreds of thousands of years (ok… maybe not that long!).

Persimmon – A Trendy Fruit in the UK

Sales of the fruit have more than doubled in the UK in the last year. What's the attraction – and what's the best way to eat one?

Our fruit bowls are becoming more adventurous. Having embraced the kiwi, the mango and the pomegranate we are now, it seems, passionate about persimmons. Supermarkets including Asda reported sales of the yellowy-orange, usually tomato-shaped fruits more than doubled last year to more than 4m, making them the fastest-selling exotic fruit in the country.

The persimmon, sometimes called the sharon fruit (the slightly unfortunate name given to one of its varieties by Israeli growers) has much to commend it. Persimmons are high in beta carotine and minerals such as sodium, magnesium, calcium and iron, and studies have found that they also contain twice as much dietary fibre per 100g as apples, plus more of the phenolic compounds thought to ward off heart disease.

Persimmons … how do you eat yours?

It also tastes delicious – providing you know what you're buying, and eat it at the right moment. Produced mainly, these days, in China, Korea and Japan, but with varieties also found in America, southern Europe and even Britain (where, known as the date-plum, it is has grown since 1629), there are actually two main types of persimmon: astringent, often called hachiya persimmon, and non-astringent, or fuyu.

You need to know which you're dealing with: while non-astringent varieties can be eaten, firm and crisp, while barely ripe, the astringent kind – rich, sweet, spicy – are mouth-puckeringly tart until fully ripe. Fortunately, it's not hard to tell when a Hachiya persimmon is ripe, a process that may take several weeks: they should be so soft that their sweet, almost jelly-like flesh practically bursts through their skins. (You can hasten ripening by leaving persimmons in a paper bag along with an apple, which produces extra ethylene to soften the fruit.)

As far as eating them is concerned, fresh fuyus are generally firm enough to slice and munch like an apple (peel them if you prefer, but the skin is perfectly edible); they work well in salads or baked in pies and cakes. Hachiyas, on the other hand, are often too squishy to bite into without making a mess: better cut them in half and spoon out the flesh, or use them in jams or compotes.

Few British chefs seem to have yet discovered the joys of the persimmon, but American homemaking guru Martha Stewart has some enticing recipes on her site, including watercress salad with persimmons and hazelnuts, persimmon white chocolate bread pudding and broiled persimmons with mascarpone.
