Arctic® apples, Rainbow papaya & high oleic soybean oil for breakfast!

In one of the first times that Arctic® apples have ever been freely available for consumption since their recent approvals, this past weekend dried Arctic® apple slices were enjoyed alongside fellow biotech fruit Rainbow papaya, as well as blueberry muffins made with high oleic soybean oil!

Arctic apple & Rainbow papayaCalifornia Dietetic Association’s Annual Meeting took place in Riverside, CA April 9-11th, and included an educational breakfast and session hosted by Soy Connection, the United Soybean Board’s Health Professional Outreach Program. This event featured biotech crop experts Dr. Alan McHughen of UC Riverside and Gregory Jaffe from the Center for Science in the Public Interest, who spoke to 300+ attendees.

So that attendees could enjoy firsthand experience of some of the beneficial crops being discussed, an awesome biotech-themed breakfast spread was provided (pictured) courtesy of the United Soybean Board.

Apologies in advance to any envious readers who are eager to try out Arctic® apples for themselves, we only had a small amount of dried Arctic® apples left from our 2014 harvest. Luckily, though, our recent approvals mean greater public availability is imminent, and soon you can enjoy all the Arctic® advantages that taste testers have raved about!
