Back to School Resolution: Practice Food Safety and Healthier Eating

- All-natural guacamole doubles as healthy snack and safe food choice -

FORT WORTH, Texas, July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Since the release of the 2000 School Health Policies and Programs Study, significant progress has been made in removing junk food from America's schools. This fall, with Salmonella outbreaks unresolved, picking food items that are both healthy and safe to place in children's lunch boxes will be a top concern for parents.

Food Safety 101 -- Processing is key. Most consumers understand that canned and jarred foods are safe, but are unaware of a third, newer technology called High Pressure Processing (HPP), states the world-leader in the use of the technology, Fresherized Foods, maker of Wholly Guacamole (http://www.whollyguac.com).

HPP foods offer an alternative to traditional caned or jarred foods. HPP "cold-pasteurization" is as effective as cooking or heating to eliminate harmful food pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria and E. coli. Additionally, because the organisms causing foods to spoil have been reduced or eliminated, HPP foods stay fresher longer. HPP is an FDA recognized process that is chemical and preservative-free and offers solutions for natural, fresh-tasting preservation of foods including avocados, tomatoes and even meats.

"Moms choosing HPP processed foods have peace of mind knowing the food is all-natural with little or no chemical preservatives," states Marcia Walker, PhD, Nutritionist and Vice President Technology and Microbiology, Fresherized Foods. "Avocados retain their nutrients, taste and texture without browning using HPP," adds Walker.

Healthier Eating 101 -- Less than 30 percent of children eat the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables a day, making it important to offer smart food choices. Avocados are much like broccoli on the "mom approval scale" -- they are loaded with more than 20 nutrients and "good fats," and are proven to lower cholesterol. Mashed, avocados become guacamole, a heart-healthy super-snack.

HPP-processed Wholly Guacamole 100 Calorie Guacamole Snack Packs contain 94 percent avocados with no preservatives. The two-ounce, packs of all-natural guacamole stay fresh for 45 days -- frozen, they can double as mini "freezer packs" keeping lunch items cool as they defrost.

Making sandwiches? All natural guacamole is a healthy substitute for traditional spreads -- one tablespoon has just 23 calories -- compared to ranch/90, mayonnaise/45, and butter/36.
