BY Ryan Chavis

EAST HANOVER, N.J. — Cracker brand Triscuit is partnering with Martha Stewart for the Triscuit Summer Snackoff, a series of recipe challenges. Stewart will continue to debut a new recipe each week until August 24 featuring a different seasonal ingredient on TriscuitSummerSnackoff.com

"This summer, I'm excited to share my favorite seasonal ingredients on a Triscuit. I can't wait to see how our fans share their creativity during the Triscuit Summer Snackoff," Stewart said, who kicked off the challenge with a Toasted Marshmallow Berry Bite recipe.

Most recently, Salmon and Minted Pea took the spotlight in the Snackoff. The recipe incorporates fresh peas, extra-virgin olive oil, skinless wild salmon fillet and lemon — among other ingredients — and can be found at TriscuitSummerSnackoff.com.

"We are always looking to our fans for new and inspiring ways to top our Triscuit crackers. Like Triscuit, Martha has roots in wholesome and inspired recipes, which is why it made sense for her to encourage others to share their favorite Triscuit recipes," said Patty Gonzalez, senior brand manager at Mondelez International. "We look forward to further growing our relationship with Martha Stewart in the coming months."

Calcium safety affirmed in study of post-menopausal women

BY Michael Johnsen

WASHINGTON — A new study published in the July issue of the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research found no increased risk of coronary heart disease or all-cause mortality in post-menopausal women supplementing with calcium and vitamin D. 
 
The study is the fifth study in the last couple of years to reaffirm calcium’s safety, which is consistent with the overall body of scientific research, the Council for Responsible Nutrition noted in a statement released Wednesday.  
 
“The evidence for why women should have confidence in the safety of calcium continues to grow,” stated Andrea Wong, VP scientific and regulatory affairs at CRN. “The benefits of calcium occur at every life stage, but because of the natural loss of calcium that occurs as we age, getting enough of this essential nutrient is especially important for the older populations, who are at risk for falls and fractures. Post-menopausal women can confidently take calcium supplements if getting enough calcium from the diet is not possible.”
 
“While food-derived calcium is the optimal source to achieve the recommended daily intake of calcium, in cases where this RDI cannot be reached from food sources alone the use of long-term calcium supplementation with vitamin D in older women should be considered,” the study authors reported.
