Fall is here and that means Grey Cup parties are just around the corner. Are you looking for delicious, all natural products to add to your shelves? We’re sure your customers will love adding this salsa to their party tables and entertaining their guests with these healthy choices. This salsa is also an excellent appetizer or starter especially during the holiday season. But salsa is more than just a snack – it has significant positive health effects too!
Did you know a tomato a day can help keep the doctor away? And why wouldn’t it – considering tomatoes are rich in vitamins C, A and folic acid? They provide 40 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C, 20 percent of vitamin A, 2 percent of iron and 1 percent of calcium. The more tomatoes you eat, helps lower your risk of certain cancers such as lung, stomach and prostate.
Ever wonder what it is about tomatoes that lower the risk of cancer? A substance called lycopene is responsible for the tomato’s red colour which is thought to be the reason for their protective effect. Processed tomatoes contain more lycopene than raw ones. Cooking them breaks down the cell walls, helping to release the lycopene. Eating tomatoes with some healthy fat such as extra virgin olive oil is better absorbed by the body. Tomatoes also contain important nutrients such as niacin, folate, and vitamin B6 which have been associated with the reduction of heart disease.
So, how do we incorporate these tomatoes into our everyday diet?
The owners of Signature Foods have created a tantalizing, freshly made salsa with natural ingredients! They start the process with our main protagonist the “red juicy tomato” accompanied with Bermuda Spanish onions, jalapenos and green peppers. Mix in fresh cilantro, lime juice, sea salt with select spices and you have an amazing, mouth-watering, healthy snack!
And, you don’t need a dictionary or a medical science degree to understand the ingredients either. There are no additives or preservatives. It’s gluten free and made locally here in Canada! Available in hot or mild, this salsa can be eaten as a dip with pita or chips. It’s so versatile it can be served up with grilled chicken or fish.
