  7. Marketing a New Paradigm in Goldenseal Product Standardization

    SBC: BOTANIPHARM, LLC            Topic: 812

    Industry attempts to standardize the biological effects of natural herbal products range from the age old practice of ritualistic harvest at specific times of the day and/or year to the contemporary method of selecting chemical compounds as makers then measuring the potency of the product proportional to the quantity of the marker, the "more is better" concept. However, while chemical ma ...

  8. Optimizing Marketing Strategy and Consumer Connection for a Corn-Based Compostable To-Go Tea Filter in Mass Foodservice

    SBC: TEA SPOT, THE            Topic: 89

    Foodservice sales of tea in the U.S. are currently increasing at about 8% annually (Sundale, 2010). Within this sector, there is an increasing demand for loose leaf teas over traditionally low-quality tea bags. The Tea Spot has developed a patent pending tea filter, trademarked Brewlux, for the preparation and delivery of loose tea to-go in the mass foodservice market. Phase I USDA-NIFA sponsored ...

  9. Less Expensive Biofuel Production Enabled by an Online Carbohydrate Monitor

    SBC: ADVANCED MICROLABS, LLC            Topic: 88

    The emerging cellulosic-based biofuels industry will benefit national security, lower Green House Gases (GHG) emissions, and bolster the American farmer through a reliable cash crop without necessarily stressing the American food supply. For the biomass industry to become sustainable, it is believed that production of ethanol must drop to $1.60/gallon in order to compete with foreign oil. Therefor ...
