Silver Palate Marinara Wins Favorite

Elisa Jung of The Bergen Record recently held a Marinara Tasting for her food blog, and Silver Palate Marinara received top honors.

"The favorite this time around turned out to be a supermarket brand distributed by a Cresskill-based company – Silver Palate (you may have the cookbook). It contains imported San Marzano tomatoes combined with tomatoes from California and other simple ingredients, including olive oil, onions, garlic – and even a little pear concentrate."

Silver Palate Creates Grain Berry Brand Cereals and more.

You may have heard the radio ads about new Silver Palate Grain Berry cereals, pancake and waffle mix, snack crackers and other foods. This new line is not just another brand of foods. Silver Palate research spent three years developing a new grain that contains more natural antioxidants than other grains, even more than other fruits and vegetables.  Even more than berries and wine. 

The name of the grain is high tannin sorghum. Sorghum is the fifth most popular grain in the world. It originated in Africa two thousand years ago where water was scarce and they needed a grain to feed their animals and themselves that would grow in arid soils and climate. There are many types of sorghum, mostly related to  color. The high-tannin variety was not popular with farmers since the cattle who were fed it did not gain much weight. Thus, it was ignored until now. The Silver Palate was not able to buy this grain since farmers did not wish to grow it. So we contracted with farmers in West Texas in dry soils and decorticated the grain (stripped off the outer layer which contained the bran, highest in fiber and highest in antioxidants.) So high, it was reported by the USDA as higher than other grains and fruits, vegetables, and berries. 

You can purchase Grain Berry Bran Flakes, Toasted Oat cereals in plain, Apple Cinnamon and Honey Nut varieties as well as Grain Berry Pancake Mix, Muffin Mix and two flavors of Crackers. Not only does Silver Palate's new Grain Berry foods offer you natural antioxidants, it offers  reduced sugars and sodium, making it a very healthy and delicious line of foods indeed.

New Low Sodium Marinara Sauce

Peter Harris, President of Silver Palate Kitchens, Inc. announced this January the company's new Marinara Pasta Sauce with low enough sodium to qualify as a low sodium food. Most pasta sauce products contain about 350mg to 600mg of sodium per serving. Mr. Harris stated that the company's new Marinara sauce contains only 115mg of sodium per half cup serving. 

"Does it taste blah?" asked many consumers. Mr. Harris said, "Try it yourself. Our pasta sauces contain imported San Marzano whole tomatoes and no tomato paste and no added sugar. The taste of the tomatoes is what you taste and, I believe, will truly enjoy". 

The American Heart Association and other health and nutrition leaders are urging consumers to cut down on sodium in processed foods. The new sauce takes its place among the company's other pasta sauce items, including, Regular Marinara, Deluxe Tomato Basil, Fra Diavolo and Vodka Elegante Sauce.

Silver Palate Flies to San Francisco
