BAKERSFIELD, Calif., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Grimmway Farms today announced the introduction of their new Simply Delicious Carrot Creations™ – an easy-to-prepare side dish made with fresh nutrient-packed petite carrots. This new product is offered in two varieties, Roasted Garlic & Savory Herb and Honey, Brown Sugar & Cinnamon. Both flavors contain a flavored buttery dollop that once heated becomes a perfectly prepared sauce, providing consumers with a convenient new way to enjoy carrots as a delicious, low-calorie side dish or snack.
Simply Delicious Carrot Creations™ can help health-conscious consumers easily incorporate the nutritious benefits of carrots into their diet. Carrots are an excellent source of beta-carotene, which is the most important plant form of vitamin A. Vitamin A supports healthy eyes and skin and helps to protect against infections. Additionally, carrots promote growth and a strong immune system, and contain phytochemicals—colorful plant compounds—that may offer protection from heart disease and certain cancers. One serving of baby carrots (85g; approximately nine medium baby carrots) is a source of over 15 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, vitamin A, vitamin K, potassium, vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and niacin. Carrots are a nutrition powerhouse, providing essential vitamins and minerals along with phytonutrients and fiber that are important for good health.
"Now more than ever consumers are looking for an easy way to make more healthful meals for their families," said Bob Borda, Vice President of Marketing at Grimmway Farms. "By developing flavorful products with our nutrient-packed carrots, we can give consumers new, delicious ways to add vegetables to their plate — with the convenience and value they have come to expect from the Grimmway Farms family."
Grimmway Farms Simply Delicious Carrot Creations™ are made with fresh carrots, herbs and spices, and creamy all-natural butter. Through Grimmway Farms' unique product development, simply remove from the refrigerator, heat microwave-safe bag in the microwave for two and a half to three minutes, remove and enjoy (oven instructions are also available). Heating the carrots marinates them in an intense, decadent, flavor-packed sauce.
Grimmway Farms Simply Delicious Carrot Creations™ are perfect as a nutritious snack or meal accompaniment great for everyday and for holidays. Grimmway Farms Simply Delicious Carrot Creations™ come in two delicious and nutritionally-dense varieties: Roasted Garlic & Savory Herb and Honey, Brown Sugar & Cinnamon. These delicious side dishes are only 70 calories per serving and contain 110 percent Vitamin A RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance), 2g fiber, and 1g protein.
Grimmway Farms Simply Delicious Carrot Creations™ are available in October in the refrigerated produce section of major food and mass retail outlets nationwide. Suggested retail price is $2.49 - $2.79 (prices may vary depending on geographic location and retail outlet).

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
