Simply Organic® "World of Taste" Seasoning Mixes Make Cuisine Easy to Prepare
Line Supports Fast-Growing Ethnic Food Category

NORWAY, IOWA (December 15, 2005) — Simply Organic ® , Frontier Natural Products Co-op's all-organic brand of spices and seasonings, has introduced a new line of six organic dry seasoning mixes for cooking authentic ethnic dishes from around the world. The line offers easily prepared recipes for the many Americans who are part of the growing trends toward ethnic cuisine and organic foods.

"People are interested in authentic flavors from different cultures," says Brett Karminski, Frontier's seasonings category manager. "By providing culinary expertise and the perfect selection of seasonings, our organic blends take the guesswork out of preparing ethnic dishes. The easy-to-follow directions, low price and vegetarian options make World of Taste ideal for the many everyday cooks looking to expand their culinary horizons or simply experiment with world cuisines."

Karminski says that with more Americans traveling internationally and tastes becoming more diversified, ethnic food has become one of the largest and fastest growing food categories. Ethnic foods are also becoming more region-specific, he says, which influenced the World of Taste selections. "We narrowed our search to specific regions, looking for an authentic and outstanding Greek dish, for example, rather than a more generic Mediterranean one."

World of Taste has introduced six organic seasoning blends:   Chipotle Mango Chicken (Mexican), Dolmades (Greek), Tabbouleh (Lebanese), Spicy Berbere Stew (African), Tomato Curry (Indian), and Ginger Wasabi Stir-Fry (Japanese).

All Simply Organic World of Taste items are certified organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI) and bear the USDA Organic seal. They contain no hydrolyzed vegetable protein, modified food starch, hydrogenated oils, or genetically engineered or irradiated ingredients. They are also kosher certified by KSA. All items are freshness dated and have a shelf life of one year from the date of manufacture.
