Diabetes is one of the leading causes of disability and death in the United States. It can cause blindness, nerve damage, kidney disease, and other health problems if it's not controlled.
One in 11 Americans have diabetes - that's more than 29 million people. And another 86 million adults in the United States are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
The good news? People who are at high risk for type 2 diabetes can lower their risk by more than half if they make healthy changes. These changes include: eating healthy, increasing physical activity, and losing weight.
We at Silver Palate and Grain Berry have a mission to create wholesome foods that taste great while containing high antioxidants and lower sugar to aid in the good health of our customers.

Grain Berry has more medical benefits than other cereals, pasta, mixes and other foods, even fruits and vegetables due to its high tannin sorghum bran which enhances fiber and helps reduce risk of stroke, diabetes, heart attack and certain cancers as part of a diet including two servings daily of fruit, vegetables and whole grains.  
Grain Berry also aids those with diabetes or prevention of diabetes due to ultra slow digestive process up to 24 hours after consumption as it reaches the colon. This makes it very low in glycemic index.

Silver Palate pasta sauces and pasta are especially friendly to diabetics and pre-diabetics.
1. Contains no added refined sugar.
2. Made with whole heirloom tomatoes
3. Contains no tomato paste.
4. Fewer carbs than leading grocery brands.
5. San Marzano tomatoes are not genetically modified.
6. Grain Berry Penne & Rotini go beyond whole grain with antioxidants.

And let's not forget the staple in all pantries, Silver Palate Thick & Rough Oatmeal, and its benefits for the entire family. Our oatmeal boasts such benefits as no sugar added and also slows down the digestive process for pre-diabetics and all of us.

Keep healthy and happy this holiday season with Silver Palate and Grain Berry!
Silver Palate brings the holiday to you!
It's always helpful to find new side dishes and appetizers to brighten up your holiday table. Try this simple 4 ingredient recipe for Zucchini Proscuitto and Mozzarella Rolls to serve to your friends and family!

2 medium zucchini
8 ounces proscuitto, thinly sliced
8 ounces fresh mozzarella
1 jar Silver Palate Pasta Sauce (any variety) 
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Slice zucchini lengthwise into 1/4 inch long planks. Place in a microwave oven and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until zucchini is just softened enough to roll into rolls, but not mushy.
Place zucchini planks on a flat surface and cover with proscuitto and mozzarella that are cut to fit. Roll up from one short end. Secure with a toothpick.
Pour marinara sauce into a 2 quart oven safe dish. Place zucchini rolls in the sauce, swirls facing up. Bake for 60 minutes. (Note: some of cheese will leak out into the sauce, but this is perfectly OK.) Serve immediately.
Green Beans are always a welcome dish every Thanksgiving, but here is a fun way to try something new and exciting using our Silver Palate Thick & Rough Oats. This dish, Green Beans with Savory Oat Streusel, will surprise and delight the masses.

½ pound fresh green beans
½ Tbs. butter, softened
½ C. Silver Palate Thick & Rough Oats
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 clove finely chopped garlic (about 1 tsp.)
Hefty Pinch of salt (to taste)
Hefty Pinch of black pepper (to taste)
½ C. finely shredded parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread Silver Palate oats in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, and toast them in the oven, stirring occasionally, until oats are very lightly golden brown. (about 10 minutes) Set aside while you prepare the green beans. Rinse the green beans and trim the ends off. Place beans in a steamer basket in a saucepan with 1 inch of water in the bottom. Steam the green beans over high heat, until done to your liking. Set beans in a shallow serving dish, toss with 1 tsp. butter, and tent with aluminum foil to keep warm.
To Finish Streusel. Heat olive oil until hot, in an 8 inch skillet over medium heat. Add garlic to hot oil and cook until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Add the toasted oats, a hefty pinch of salt and pepper, stirring to coat the oats. Cook for 1 minute. Add the parmesan and continue cooking until the topping begins to clump; stirring constantly. (About 1 minute.) Remove from heat, and sprinkle streusel over the steamed green beans. Serve hot.  
ONYX Comes to Market with Grain Berry in 2017!
A power boost of Antioxidants & Fiber coming your way from Grain Berry!
Texas A&M University has licensed Grain Berry to market its new ONYX sorghum directly as part of the Grain Berry program. 
ONYX is a cross between high tannin sorghum and black whole grain sorghum. The high tannin sorghum is rich in tannins or procyanadins, much like the tannins in red wine, tea, walnuts, etc. and higher in total antioxidants than blueberries. 
The black sorghum contains another type of antioxidants called anthocyanins. While many flowers and plants contain anthocyanins, the type in black sorghum is highly stable and is called 3-deoxyanthocyanins. 
Why is that a good thing? It's believed that 3-deoxyanthocyanins is beneficial to deal with diabetes and prediabetes due to its slow metabolism and digestibility. By combining foods with 3-deoxyanthocyanins the entire metabolic rate slow down and helps prevent sugars and fat formation in the body. 
Thus, high tannin sorghum is a great additive to grains, the combination of both high tannins and black sorghum (3-deoxyanthocyanins) doubles the bioactivity. 
Thus, Grain Berry cereals, baking mixes and pasta products make a major contribution to health and well being.

--Slow down sugar absorption into the blood stream
--Reduced response from glucose and insulin versus whole wheat as a control.
--Grain Berry has up to 70% less sugar than national brands of cereal.

New ONYX food additive to help control sugar, boost antioxidants and add plant-based natural fiber.

Watch for new ONYX in Grain Berry products coming in 2017!
