It's All About the FOOD at the Potato Expo!

This is the kind of trade event that adds excitement to the industry and reminds us that it is all about the food!

Do you have a passion for potatoes? I do, and one of the highlights of my year is meeting the contestants and hosting the Spud Nation Throwdown at the Potato Expo. The 2017 Spud Nation Throwdown, held this year in San Francisco, was an exciting fusion of tastes, cultures and flavors as a diverse group of international chefs incorporated potatoes into dishes inspired by their distinctive culinary experiences.

Bone Health 101

We all know the bone strengthening benefits from consuming lots of dark leafy greens as well as other vegetables, fruits and dairy, but there is a lot more you should know.

Bones act as storehouses for minerals that we obtain through our diets and release them in response to signals in our blood. Cells in our bones called osteoblasts form new bone while osteoclasts break down and clear out the old bone. It's a delicate but perfect balance that occurs throughout the life cycle. The activity of osteoclasts begins to outpace that of the osteoblasts around our mid-thirties; which over time, results in weaker, more fragile bones. There are various things we can do to help delay bone loss and continue to maintain and even build bone density.
