Technology Turns Over A New Leaf
(NAPSA) - The digital age is taking a seat at America's dining room tables. Now you can learn the life story of your bagged lettuce and spinach with a few simple clicks on a Web page.
Does it matter? The Food Channel thinks so. It has identified 'Food Sourcing/Vetting' as a top consumer food trend in 2010.
But what it really means to consumers is the chance to make informed purchase decisions about the foods they feed their families.
That's why Fresh Express is offering its Leaf Locator online tool that can tell consumers where the leafy greens in their particular bag of salad were grown. Consumers can find the Leaf Locator on the 'Your Salad Story' Web site -www.freshexpress.com/salad-which shows them how the salads are cared for from field to store.
In growing leafy greens, what happens in the field makes a big difference in the quality of the final product. Any master winemaker will vouch for this. In wine making, the growing region of the grapes has a lot to do with the quality of the wine. Similarly, a great salad starts with leaves grown in those regions that are best suited to bring out the unique flavors and textures of different varieties of leafy greens.
