Urbana, Illinois, February 2012— “Although the corn market has received the lion’s share of attention over the past two months, the soybean market has become the focus of more attention in recent weeks,” said University of Illinois agricultural economist Darrel Good.

The attention has been the result of the surprising USDA December 2011 stocks estimate, adverse weather conditions in South America, the demise of the ethanol blenders’ tax credit, and prospects for small year-ending stocks.

Are Food Dyes Harmful?
Health
Friday, 10 February 2012 20:25
Everywhere USA, February 2012— Many of us are still wary of food dyes because of reports about links between red dye #2 and cancer that began back in the 1970s. While red dye #2 was subsequently banned from products sold in the United States, many health-conscious consumers continue to avoid foods with other artificial colors or dyes—even though the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) still considers them safe for human consumption.

Parsippany, New Jersey, January 2012— For those of you not in the know, “XLVI” (or “46” for those of you who need to brush up on their Latin), refers to what has turned out to be one of the biggest global events of all time; The Super Bowl.

And this year, Indianapolis is host to the big game, which will begin late in the afternoon of February 5. And if you’re doing your own hosting this time around, it’s time to start planning.

Foods that are always popular with tailgaters, both those confronting the elements to others remaining cozily inside, warmed by the tube and the other bodies around them, include sandwiches of some kind. This would include both subs and burgers, and more than likely topped with some kind of premium quality cheese.

Sixth Taste
Health
Friday, 20 January 2012 21:45
Everywhere, January 2012— As we were growing up, many of us were taught that our tongues could detect four essential tastes: sweet, salty, sour and bitter.

Anything else, we were told, was a product of aroma and texture. But it always seemed like there weren't enough choices to explain the entire range of tastes; could it really be that the only taste behind the deliciousness of a butter-doused morel mushroom, or a perfectly grilled steak, was a salty one?
