At the recent 2010 Natural Products Expo East Trade Show in Boston, I spoke with Larry Plesent, the founder of Vermont Soap Organics.

Vermont Soap Organics makes my absolute favorite fruit and vegetable wash. Yes, washing with water is just not enough. It is important to use a produce wash but not just any one.

In this video, Larry explains the benefits of using a produce wash and discusses the main ingredients in his product.

Please be aware that not all produce washes are created equally. Many contain an ingredient called grapefruit seed extract. There is a good deal of controversy around grapefruit seed extract and it is something that I try to avoid.

Last week, I went to the Natural Products Expo East Trade Show in Boston. I just absolutely love these shows. Not only do I get to meet some fantastic people but I have the opportunity to see the newest products on the market.

These are the best organic food products that I came across.

SIPP – GINGER BLOSSOM SODA

I can only describe Sipp’s ginger blossom soda in one word – WOW.

When I first took a sip, I experienced the ginger. Then literally within one second, the ginger vanished and vanilla poured in. It was like Houdini played a trick on me.

The aftertaste was where things calmed down and I could reflect on what was in my mouth. If I could compare it to anything, I’d say this drink tastes like a cream soda. The few ingredients include ginger, lime, vanilla and agave nectar.

I am not a huge organic soda drinker but this beverage was simply outstanding. It was very, very hard to put down. Read more »

At the 2010 Natural Products Expo East Trade Show, I came across a fantastic new baking product called Purely Elizabeth.

In this video, I speak with Elizabeth Stein, the founder of Purely Elizabeth and a fellow NYC resident.

There were two things that I loved about this product:

1) The Ingredients – Aside from being wheat-free and gluten-free, Purely Elizabeth uses great organic ingredients such as chia seeds and palm sugar.

2) The Packaging – The design and branding are spectacular.

Keep an eye on Purely Elizabeth. This is a young company that is going to garner a lot of attention in the organic space.

Even though I don’t have kids (yes, 40 and still single. If my mother were still alive, she would not be happy in the slightest.), I always think about what I would feed them.

You can be sure of one thing, however. Come Halloween, they’d be getting organic.

As the end of October approaches, I’ve put together my Top 5 options for Halloween, both organic candy and organic food that is sweet and tastes like candy.

ANGELL ORGANIC CANDY BARS

I came across this product last week at the 2010 Natural Products Expo East Trade Show in Boston. Co-Founder Christopher Angell said it is the only certified organic and fair trade candy bar on the market. While there is a select number of other certified organic candy bars available, I haven’t come across one that is fair trade as well.

The taste is rich, and the middle is soft and chewy. There are three flavors, one of which is vegan (Dark Angel) and one of which is gluten-free (Angel Crisp). Read more »
