Press Release

Springville, CA

Tropical Traditions announced this week that they are carrying the Middle Earth Organics award-winning line of organic Italian tomato sauces. This line of organic tomato sauces, packaged in glass jars, is Europe’s premier organic tomato sauce line, and one of the very few imported Italian brands in the United States marketplace. Their operations are located outside of Piacenza in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy.

Unlike other sauce-makers, Middle Earth Organics’ fields are located directly adjacent to their processing plant. This means that their vegetables go direct from vine to jar. They are never transported or refrigerated. Their policy is to process everything within 3 hours or less of being harvested, and this accounts for the distinctly fresher flavor of these premier organic tomato sauces. NO SUGAR OR SWEETENERS ARE ADDED!! These sauces are so fresh and delicious, that no sugar or sweeteners are needed, and no tomato concentrate is added either.

This is Italian food at its finest: simple, traditional recipes with no shortcuts. What they don’t grow themselves, they source from the best that the Italian peninsula has to offer, such as: pungent green olive oil from Puglia, porcini mushrooms from the Apennines, baby capers from the island of Lipari, Peranzana olives from Calabria, etc.

In a taste test of over forty types of tomato sauce, Organic Style Magazine rated the Tomato and Basil Sauce the BEST IN THE USA in its category. And Child Magazine rated the Tomato and Eggplant TOPS FOR KIDS because of its great flavor and healthy ingredients.  The San Francisco Chronicle commended the line’s “clear, natural flavors” and listed Middle East Organics as one of only four gourmet quality sauces that use the best ingredients and no sugar.

“PASSATA RUSTICA” EXTRA THICK COUNTRY-STYLE TOMATO Purée

Organic Extra Thick Passata Rustica Tomato Puree Tropical Traditions Introduces Top Italian Line of Organic Traditional Tomato Sauces

What is Passata Rustica? The best translation would be something like “Country Style Tomato Purée”, although “Tomato Ambrosia” or “Hearts of Tomato” does a better job in catching its essence. Basically, Passata Rustica is an exceptionally high quality purée, la crème de la crème of the tomato world, produced by only a small number of estates in Italy. It is unique in several respects:

Unlike regular Passata in which tomatoes are pulverized beyond recognition (and to which water is often added), Passata Rustica actually preserves the tomatoes in beautiful, velvety chunks. The strainer employed in the manufacturing process is much larger than usual, allowing the pulp to exit in pieces.

Since the holes in the strainer are larger, much more attention to detail has to be paid. No broken or dark tomatoes can be used.

Whereas a regular Passata (or “Strained Tomatoes” as they are sometimes known in the USA) uses tomatoes collected throughout the harvest, only the most perfect, ripest tomatoes are reserved for Passata Rustica. In fact, all Passata Rustica is actually manufactured during a short, two-week stretch generally between August 15 and August 30. This is when tomatoes are at the absolute peak of their freshness and sweetness.

Within three hours of being harvested, the tomatoes are first individually hand-selected and then processed. This insures the “direct from vine to jar” flavor that characterizes all of our products.

Study Compares American Diabetes Association Low-fat Diet to High-fat Ketogenic Diet for Helping Diabetes: Ketogenic Diet Wins

Study Compares American Diabetes Association Low-fat Diet to High-fat Ketogenic Diet for Helping Diabetes: Ketogenic Diet Wins

A new study published this month (April 2014) compared two diets with overweight diabetic people.

One group ate the standard recommended diet by the American Diabetes Association, which was a low-fat, high carbohydrate, restricted calorie diet, as per the USDA dietary guidelines for a “healthy” diet.

The other group, almost in direct contrast to the ADA diet, was encouraged to eat a a very low carbohydrate, high fat, non calorie-restricted ketogenic diet.

The results? The ketogenic diet group, although eating far more calories than the ADA group, lost more weight, and more ketogenic dieters reduced their diabetes medication than did the ADA group.

Enzyme Nutrition and Raw Food: Fact or Fiction?

Enzyme Nutrition and Raw Food: Fact or Fiction?

Is there any scientific evidence that enzymes present in raw foods provide significant help for the digestion of foods themselves once the foods enter the human digestive system? Is there any scientific evidence to back up the claims that enzymes actually contain the life force that gives life to plants and animals? Let’s take a look at the evidence, and try to distinguish facts from belief.

Diet Soda Sales Plummet as Consumers’ Understanding of Deadly Health Risks Grow

Soda consumption is now in “freefall,” having dropped to its lowest point since 1995, with diet sodas taking the greatest hit.

One of the largest studies of its kind found that drinking just two diet drinks a day can increase your risk of an early death from heart disease by 50 percent. Previous research looking at aspartame toxicity also found a clear association between aspartame consumption and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and leukemia.

Obesity Now Threatens to Overtake Hunger as Global Health Concern Number One

Obesity Now Threatens to Overtake Hunger as Global Health Concern Number One

In 1950, the number of starving individuals on Earth was estimated to be around 700 million; 100 million people, primarily in rich countries, were obese. By 2010, the world’s hungry had marginally grown to 800 million, while the number of obese citizens of the world had exploded to 500 million. Estimates suggest that by 2030, more than one billion people, worldwide, will fall into the obese category.
