The ABC Research team will be in Boston March 15-18 for the Seafood Expo. This is one of the largest gatherings of seafood related suppliers and professionals in the world. As ABC Research prepares to bring a wealth of knowledge to the show, I want to emphasize here a major area of focus in the world of salmon.

There are people like me in this crazy world who love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. One of the simple joys in life, at least to me, is taking a whiff of an open jar of peanut butter. It’s a heavenly smell. The PB&J (as we aficionados like to call it) is one of the simplest meals anyone can make, especially for those with a limited amount of time to throw something together. It’s so easy to make, even little kids can assemble one. Granted there may be a huge mess to clean up afterwards, but you get my point. When they’re done, they have something resembling a sandwich on which they’re happily feasting with some of the contents smeared all over their face.

I am crestfallen! I live and die by the grill and now I might die from the grill. Recent studies have shown that grilling meat can lead to Alzheimer’s disease and pre diabetes.
By: Andrew Kennedy, President, FoodLogiQWeird image, right? I was thinking about the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup commercials and how goofy they were. A man walking along eating chocolate stumbles into a woman walking with a jar labeled “peanut butter” and voilà they discover a great tasting combination. In reality, nobody walks around eating peanut butter out of a jar and if they did, they would be pretty ticked off if someone dropped something else into it. I suppose we had a higher tolerance for stupid things on TV in the 80’s – like “Joanie Loves Chachi”, for example.
However, it does illustrate the point that somebody must have had the inspiration to mix the two ingredients into product that, as it turns out, is pretty good. I like to think of lab testing and food traceability as two ingredients that serve a useful purpose individually, but together make a compelling combination.
As most of you know, the legalization of medical marijuana recently spread across 20 states and recreational marijuana use became legal for adults in Washington State and Colorado. It is just a matter of time before other state legislatures succumb to the pressure and pot smoking will be legally rampant. As a high school student in the 1970’s, I must admit that smoking pot was a very popular activity (I am not saying that I indulged) and the thought of legalization was unheard of.
Aunque las finanzas son importantes en la industria alimentaria, el valor de una vida es sin duda alguna sobrepasa el costo que un producto y análisis de rutina puedan tener. Al implementar un nuevo programa de seguridad ambiental o al ejercer un programa actual, el plan estratégico debe ser el de buscar y destruir. La única manera de eliminar enfermedades provenientes de alimentos es buscando las fuentes de contaminación asegurar un plan HACCP solido que funcione.
Back in the mid 80’s, there was a campy, but awesome, movie called ‘Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins.’ The main character was chosen against his will to train in an all-inclusive martial art that would make him, essentially, ninja-like; able to do amazing things using a mind-over matter type of thinking. His instructor, Chiun is a very strict man who constantly chides him and the American culture, feeding Remo Asian-centric cuisine. Remo tires of it and attempts to sneak some “real food” past his master. Chiun, of course, catches him:
Taste, touch, smell, and hearing have the amazing ability to bring back memories from our past. People love the music from the era in which they grew up because they like to remember the good ol’ days from high school (I’m an 80’s kid, myself). As for our sense of smell, probably about 15 years ago or so I bought my son his first canisters of Play-Doh. I opened the little plastic container and took a deep whiff. I don’t know why I smelled it. It must have been some deep-rooted instinct. The instant I did, a virtual flood of memories from my childhood swept over me. It was very, very powerful. I just sat there for a few moments as I joyfully remembered my younger days of squishing and molding the stuff in my hands, making fabulous creations (mostly worms and such, I’m sure). The first words out of my mouth were, “Ah… Play-Doh.” It had an eerily calming effect on me.
