Clinton, Michigan - Eden Foods introduced six new packaged snacks at the Natural Products Expo in Anaheim, California this past weekend: Organic Tamari Roasted Almonds, Montmorency Tart Cherries, Organic Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, Organic Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds, All Mixed Up, All Mixed Up Too.
These 4 ounce packaged snacks are Eden's response to customer requests for a handier version of the company's bulk almond, fruit, seed, and nut mixes. Roasting and packaging is done at Eden's certified organic, AIB rated Superior Clinton, Michigan facility. Each package is resealable for on-the-go anywhere, anytime. Each snack is low in sodium with no harsh refined salt, no hydrogenated oils, no preservatives, no sulfites, and only the finest, non-irradiated organically grown seasonings. They are boxed, 15 bags, in a ready to merchandise display unit and are also hole punched for strip displays.
Eden Organic Tamari Roasted Almonds are whole roasted almonds with mild salt. Certified organic almonds are dry roasted to perfection and lightly coated with Eden Organic Imported Tamari Soy Sauce. They are low in sodium, an excellent source of magnesium and a good source of dietary fiber and protein. They also provide omega-3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids (EFAs), and potassium. Recent research shows that a handful of almonds daily may help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. Choosing whole almonds, as does Eden, is important because much of the almond's antioxidant power is concentrated in and near the skin.
Eden Dried Montmorency Tart Cherries are from '2nd year transitional to organic' orchards that are becoming certified organic while using organic methods without chemicals. Fresh harvested cherries are cooled in circulating water, pitted and 'quick frozen' in 10 minutes, then thawed and infused by immersing them in Eden Organic Apple Juice Concentrate until they reach the right 'brix' or sweetness. The infused cherries are rinsed, low heat dried, and coated very lightly with a mist of organic safflower oil to keep them from clumping. A good source of potassium, dietary fiber, and iron; low in sodium and fat free, Eden Dried Montmorency Tart Cherries promote cardiovascular health. Long known as the 'Healing Cherry' and a remedy for easing gout and arthritis, the Montmorency is a potent source of at least 17 powerful antioxidants.
Eden Organic Roasted Pumpkin Seeds are dry roasted organic pumpkin seeds, lightly coated with a bit of Eden's Atlantic sea salt. Low in sodium and an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber, and magnesium, they also provide omega-3, 6, and 9 EFAs and 15 percent daily value of zinc per serving. Pumpkin seeds are an old folk remedy for prostate and urination problems, and new research shows that even as little as one ounce of shelled pumpkin seeds three times a week may help protect against enlarged prostate (BPH). Other studies indicate that pumpkin seeds may protect against kidney stones and parasitic disease, and may even help ward off depression.
Eden Organic Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds are dry roasted organic pumpkin seeds, lightly coated with organic tamari soy sauce, and mixed with organic garlic powder and organic cayenne pepper. Hot and Spicy - they are low in sodium, an excellent source of protein, fiber, and magnesium, a good source of iron and zinc, and also provide omega-3, 6, and 9 EFAs, and 8 percent daily value of potassium per serving.
Eden All Mixed Up is dry roasted and lightly salted organic pumpkin seeds and organic almonds with dried Montmorency tart cherries, and organic raisins. A delightful blend of 'nutty and salty' with 'sweet and tart', All Mixed Up is low sodium, an excellent source of magnesium and a good source of dietary fiber and protein. It also provides 7 percent daily value of potassium, and 8 percent daily value of iron and zinc per serving.
Eden All Mixed Up Too is roasted organic pumpkin seeds, raw organic sunflower seeds, organic tamari roasted almonds, organic raisins, and dried Montmorency tart cherries. It is an irresistible combination of a rich and nutty, sweet and tart with mild saltiness. Low in sodium, an excellent source of magnesium and high in fiber and protein, providing 7 percent daily value of potassium and 8 percent daily value of zinc per serving.
