How Infor Food & Beverage Facilitates FSMA Compliance

Posted by Harriet Schneider on Sep 10, 2019 8:00:00 AM

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires that food and beverage companies take a more proactive approach to food safety. This is a shift from the more reactive approach that food and beverage companies have historically followed. With FSMA in place, companies must identify risks, create procedures for mitigating hazards, and execute against those procedures to ensure all threats to the safety of the food supply chain are contained, as well as demonstrate that their programs are valid and that they are continually being improved upon.

What The Heck Is A Calabacitas?

Posted by Michael Lea on Aug 8, 2019 8:00:00 AM

The last time you dipped your chip into the guacamole at your favorite Mexican restaurant, did it taste different? If it did, it could be because it wasn't made with avocado. Instead, what you might have actually been eating is calabacitas. 

Some Mexican restaurants have been using calabacitas, a small zucchini-like squash in place of avocados to make guacamole. Though the taste is reportedly very similar, guacamole made with calabacitas is thinner and more watery.

With last summer being the hottest on record for California, it affected the avocado crop, and this year avocado lovers are feeling the heat. The popular fruit has rocketed in price due to high popularity and low supply, leading some restaurants to find a substitute ingredient for guacamole.

I read this article last week and it got me thinking, besides guacamole, do we really know what we are eating? And not just at restaurants but in the food we buy at grocery stores, too.
