Does Color Affect Appetite?

Have you ever taken a moment to stop and think about your eating environment, your plates, tablecloths, serving bowls and utensils? If you eat out often, have you ever noticed the color scheme at your favorite restaurant? Color may possibly influence your eating habits.

While it’s obvious that the size of the plate has a correlation to the amount of food that can fit on it, the color of the food and of the plate has a similar effect. Before we bite into anything, we have already assessed the food, and its presentation, with our eyes. Food that looks well-presented will be far more appetizing that an unattractive plate. It is at this time, when we are eating first with our eyes, that food’s color will have an effect.

Can a Starbucks a day keep the doctor away?  Past clinical research has suggested that people who drink 4 or more cups of coffee per day have a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes.  A new study by Chinese researchers share the science behind this finding.

Studies have shown that those who drink four or more cups of coffee per day have a 50 percent lower risk of Type 2 diabetes.  Every additional cup provides another 7 percent decrease in risk. New data by Chinese researchers have cited the protective benefits of three major compounds (Caffeic acid, chlorogenic acid and caffeine) in coffee that inhibit a substance called human islet amyloid polypeptide (hIAPP), which has been linked to diabetes.  They found that decaffeinated coffee contains higher levels of caffeic acid and chlorogenic acid (the compounds with the greatest effect) so benefits may be even better with decaffeinated coffee.

Paula Deen Announces She’s Diabetic

The rumors have been flying for a long time that Paula Deen, 64, is diabetic. These rumors were finally addressed this week with Paula’s admission on the Today show that she does indeed have diabetes. She was diagnosed three years ago, has been taking diabetes medication, but has kept this diagnosis from her fans – something that has upset many of them as she continued to cook her high calorie and fat laden dishes, and write her cookbooks with similar recipes.

In fact, not only is Deen now a Type 2 diabetic, she has teamed up with a drug company (the one that manufactures the drug that she takes) and is part of an ad campaign promoting them and their ways in which to help people manage their diabetes. Some wonder why she waited to announce her condition until she was representing a drug company – would she have kept it quiet if the drug company had not come calling with their large paycheck? Is her publicity machine working overtime so she can bring some attention to her son’s new cooking show “Not My Mama’s Meals”? Or is it all purely coincidental?

Michel Cluizel is a world renowned luxury chocolate maker.  For Hanukkah, Chocolat Michel Cluizel, on 5th Avenue in New York City, launched its first line of OU certified kosher truffles, pastries and macaroons.  This is the first time the 63 year old French company is producing chocolate in the US.  The chocolate is produced in a brand new state of the art facility built especially for this Kosher Non-Dairy line.

With this first line they are producing 5 flavors of truffles.  My personal favorite is Joy, with almond and hazelnut praline and cocoa nibs coated in dark chocolate.  Now, all of us can experience the Joy of Kosher through chocolate.  I was privileged to receive a sampling of these chocolates and  can’t get enough!  Enjoying these chocolates on a Friday night with a glass of red wine after a nice Shabbat dinner is just pure heaven.

In November 1999 Joey Allaham opened the doors to The Prime Grill. He had one goal in mind – to elevate the kosher dining experience. He wanted to create a sophisticated ambiance with superior food for each diner. He is a fourth generation butcher and he used his knowledge of meat and taste to design his restaurants. They each represent a distinct passion of his. The Prime Grill highlights Joey’s passion for meat, Solo encompasses the American flavors he enjoys, and Prime KO shares his love of fresh fish and Japanese cuisine.

There is now a fourth “Prime” location, Prime Butcher Baker. “BB Prime” is located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side at 1572 Second Avenue. The design is fresh and modern, but most importantly warm and inviting.  The Prime Hospitality Groups restaurants can now be brought straight to your door. This is the new generation of gourmet shopping; you will be able to shop among the finest cuts of meat, fish, delicious home-style foods, and freshly baked pastries and breads.

An analysis by Italian experts shows that the more individuals are informed by magazines, TV and the internet, the more they stick to the Mediterranean diet, one of the healthiest diets in the world. It has long been thought that the opposite was true, that media was responsible for poor diets and the rise in consumption of fast foods.

This is the conclusion of a study performed by the Research Labs at the Fondazione di Ricerca e Cura “Giovanni Paolo II” in Campobasso. One thousand individuals took part in this study.

In December 2011 Coca Cola alerted the FDA that it found low levels of fungicide in its own orange juice, and in that of their competitors. This specifically affected the orange juice and concentrate produced in Brazil. After this announcement, Tropicana tested its own orange juice and also found low levels of this dangerous fungicide, but that it was at a level that was below federal safety regulations.

The FDA has halted foreign imports of orange juice while further tests are being carried out. The FDA will deny entry to any juice that tests show have 10 or more parts per billion of the fungicide carbendazim.
