'Gluten free' labeling standards start in the U.S.
Canadian Grocer
Starting this week, “gluten-free” labels on packaged foods have real meaning. Until now, the term “gluten-free” had not been regulated, and manufacturers made their own decisions about what it means. This new requirement is especially important for people who suffer from celiac disease and don’t absorb nutrients well. They can get sick from the gluten found in wheat and other cereal grains.

Niagara's growing farmers' market industry
Welland Tribune
At farmers markets in Niagara and across the province this week, rows of fresh peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, green beans, cucumbers and other locally-grown fruits and vegetables will be purchased from farming businesses big and small. Many workers behind fold-up tables and under pop-up tents that transform empty parking lots into outdoor markets will wear T-shirts with the oft-used slogan "Farmers feed cities" written on them. The same mantra is printed on bright yellow cardboard signs in front of many of the family farms dotted across the Niagara Region.

In solitary: Most meals eaten alone
Burger Business
For most Americans, eating a meal is a solitary rather than social occasion. More than half (57 per cent) of all eating occasions (both at-home and away-from-home) in the U.S. are people eating alone, according to data from The NPD Group. It notes that 27 per cent of U.S. households now consist of a single person, the highest level in U.S. history. Breakfast is the loneliest daypart, NPD finds, with 60 per cent of meals consumed alone.

Mustard to battle against wireworms
CBC News
As wireworms spread across P.E.I., costing potato growers millions of dollars by damaging crops, farmers are turning to a new rotation crop for the fight. Wireworms, the larval form of the click beetle, have become a serious agricultural pest on the Island in the last couple of years.

Research aims to make whole wheat pasta more appetizing
University of Guelph
Whole wheat pasta is a high-fibre, healthy alternative to traditional white flour pasta, but its texture may be too soft for some people. Now, a University of Guelph researcher is trying to change that by studying how gluten influences texture, so that manufacturers can make whole wheat pasta more palatable. Prof. Jayne Bock, a food science researcher, hopes this will help consumers increase their fibre consumption.
