NATURALLY HEALTHY www.gourmetnews.com n MARCH 2016 n GOURMET NEWS N H 1 2 0 their goal. As consumer appetites continue to trend toward healthy, informed eating, they're also trending toward whole grains. In re- search done by market research company Decision Analyst, whole grains came in at the top of the list when consumers were asked to pick the healthiest foods from a list of 70 foods generally considered good for you. When you consider grains part of the overall trend toward healthy living, Nutrimill is in the right market. The Nutrimill Harvest is a great way for consumers to remove the middleman from their food. "This whole farm-to-table movement is benefiting the grain mill business," says L'Chef President Gary Leavitt. The improved availability of whole grains in local markets and even big box stores gives consumers easy access to grind their own grains. Leavitt says home cooks, rather than paying $6 a pound for retail rice flour, can buy a 50-pound sack of rice for, say, $13 to $20, depending on market channel, shrinking the cost of home ground rice flour to 25–40 cents a pound. The latest addition to the Nutrimill fam- ily, the Nutrimill Harvest is perfect for the everyday consumer. The Nutrimill Har- vest corundum Grainmaster ® millstones can produce a full range of textures from cracked grain cereal to fine flour, with a simple texture control knob inside the hopper. Crack one cup of whole grain ce- real or mill a cup of bean flour for hum- mus, all with the convenience of milling right into your bowl. From the housing to the motor and the millstones, the new NutriMill Harvest grain mill was crafted to help home cooks everywhere grind the grains they love into nutrient-rich flour they can enjoy. This mill combines fine engineering, superior craftsmanship and a classic design to cre- ate a mill ready to fit in with any kitchen. Nutrimill, the industry leader in grain mills, is looking forward to continued growth as more consumers find better ways to enjoy whole grains.

To establish a stronger presence in respec- tive product categories, manufacturers often pursue costly and time-consuming research with the goal of eliciting advertising claims to use on package and in promotional mate- rials. That strategy is often a high-stakes gamble with no guarantees it will lead to claims manufacturers can utilize. At ChefsBest, brands can pursue advertis- ing claims without the exorbitant costs asso- ciated with consumer research. Through a proprietary process conducted by panels of Certified Master Tasters ® trained in the art of quantifying taste through objective evaluation, ChefsBest honors the best-tasting products in every category. As a result, the highest quality products are re- warded and consumers get the support they need to make the best, most informed deci- sions in the aisle. "Bottom line, we've established a more time- and cost-efficient path to powerful ad- vertising claims that brands can use to dif- ferentiate themselves in their categories," said ChefsBest President and Chief Execu- tive Officer Lisa Liguori. "The work that we do has allowed best-selling brands like Dole Frozen Fruit to unlock coveted claims like 'America's Best' and 'Best Tasting' without the gamble of consumer research." By utilizing a proprietary judging process called the Sensory Attribute Quality Analy- sis, a panel of ChefsBest Certified Master Tasters identifies high quality and best-tast- ing foods resulting in qualifying brands earn- ing the ChefsBest Best Taste Award. Due to the panel's ability to quantify the sensory ex- perience while upholding Sensory Testing Methods created by ASTM International, re- sulting ad claims are substantiated and us- able in market. "Probably the most important factor for brands to understand is that the ChefsBest medallion cannot be bought," Liguori said. "Selection by our independent judging panel is the only way to secure an endorsement by ChefsBest." Brands like Weight Watchers, Dannon, Post and Goya have incorporated the medal- lion into a wide range of point-of-sale mate- rials and consumer communications, from FSIs to coupons, packages, freezer clings and print ads. In addition to helping substantiate valu- able claims, ChefsBest's unbiased judging process has also been used to offer valuable feedback to research and development teams with regard to improving taste profiles. Dur- ing the tasting process, Certified Master Tasters compile data that offer expert insight into attributes like flavor, texture, aroma and appearance that can be helpful when improv- ing that product, expanding product lines with new formulas, or filtering the number of SKUs you bring to market.
