A little less than a year ago, we knew the news of the death of Jiroemon Kimura , the oldest man in the world with 116 years.His predecessor in the title, Misao Okawa, did it at the age of 115 years. By their names we can find out that they are Asian, specifically Japanese. And it is not surprising, since Eastern countries have completely different habits of life and food than we can find in the West, it is believed that this combination of a healthy lifestyle and a partially vegetarian diet are the key to longevity and of the state of health enjoyed by Asians. Today we are talking about the Okinawa Diet, which could well be the secret of eternal youth.
The Okinawa Centenary Study with Dr. Makoto Suzuki at the head, focused on one of the most important blue areas on the planet, the city of Okinawa, which, in addition to having the highest life expectancy, its inhabitants enjoy vitality and present a youthful and energetic state. In addition, this area has the lowest rate of diseases of metabolic origin (diabetes, cholesterol, cardiovascular diseases ...) and the cancer rate is almost zero.
This diet, in addition to making you enjoy an incredible state of health and vitality during old age, can make you lose weight. If this is your end, I leave you a list of the foods allowed during the regime.
We always think it is too early to "start taking care of ourselves" but the younger we are when we acquire the good habits the less it will cost us to adapt to them, here are some tips to reach 90 years of good health.
There are people who always maintain a good state of health and hardly get sick, in their lifestyle and in their food we can find the secrets of their "superhealth"
There are many differences between East and West, especially if we look at the eating habits and routines on both sides of the globe. It is believed that this is one of the reasons that Asians do not have such aggressive symptoms during menopause.
In Asia, sports are understood in a different way than we know in Europe or America, in Asian countries women practice yoga and Tai-Chi regularly, these exercises maintain a more stable physical and mental state throughout their lives. In addition this type of sports where the game enters the body and mind, maintain more stable levels of hormones (estrogen and progesterone).
The key is in the consumption of phytostrogens these plant pseudohormones are found in foods such as soybeans and goji berries; so in Asia the consumption of them increases to 60 milligrams, for the 15 that are consumed in the Mediterranean area. The ideal intake is around 50 milligrams, that is, the closest intake is Asian.
It is not only attributed to food and lifestyle that Asians have a lighter menopause, but to the environment of Asian and Western cities, since many Asian emigrants settled in countries like the United States, go on to experience a menopause similar to the western ones. It is believed that pollution in the most industrialized cities has a negative impact on health, especially for women.
Anyway, it is believed that the secret to avoid the annoying symptoms is to lead an active life from youth, a diet in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and proteins of plant origin such as soy and its derivatives (tofu, seitan ..)
In short, despite the fact that the diet is clearly different in the East and the West, it is not only the diet that is responsible for eternal youth in one of the blue areas of the planet; but also to the lifestyle and environmental factors that surround us.

Bar Maid Corporation is excited to announce that judges named their recently introduced FLY-BYE Floor Drain Trap Seal a winner in the Foodservice Equipment Reports 2017 Smallwares Competition.
Quickly and easily installed in the floor drain, FLY-BYE Floor Drain Trap Seal is a patented one-way valve that allows liquid and solids to drain, then closes to prevent migration of odors, harmful and potentially flammable gases, insects and liquid backflow up through the floor drain grate.
Foodservice Equipment Reports is an award-winning monthly publication read by 28,000 equipment specifiers/buyers in commercial and noncommercial foodservice. The magazine held its 2017 Smallwares Competition on July 27 at the Boelter SuperStore’s Event Test Kitchen in Milwaukee. A group of four judges, made up of smallwares and tabletop specialists from three major E&S dealerships and a foodservice operator, gave top honors to FLY-BYE Floor Drain Trap Seal from a field of 28 finalists.
The judges used a specific set of criteria to make their selections. To qualify, Smallwares Product Entries included any handheld, non-electric kitchen tool designed and marketed specifically to the commercial foodservice industry. Additionally, products must be new to the market, and marketed to the foodservice industry on or after the NRA Show 2016/May 2016. Qualifying products were judged on their uniqueness or innovation in their category, service to the industry or problem-solving functions, food and labor safety enhancement, durability and aesthetics.
Four sizes available to fit most drains, FLY-BYE Floor Drain Trap Seal is for use in either new construction or retrofit applications where trap primers were never installed. Tested and certified to the ASSE 1072 Standard and listed with IAPMO and I.C.C. It aids LEED certification.
“This product is a huge problem solver for bars and restaurants that strive to improve sanitation and indoor air quality,” says George Shepherd, owner and president of Bar Maid Corporation. “We are so pleased that the Smallwares Competition judges recognized its design and benefits.”

Chocolate is often labelled as a cheat food, guilty pleasure, or rich dessert but these categorizations neglect its health benefits. To do chocolate some justice and give swimmers a couple excuses to eat this tasty treat, we’ve come up with 10 unexpected benefits that accompany chocolate consumption. The more chocolate is processed, the fewer health benefits accompany the product. For this reason, health experts often recommend consuming varieties of unsweeted, raw dark chocolate. However, processed chocolate can still bring a superfood boost, provided there aren’t too many additives.
Flavanols, naturally-occurring compounds that occur in plant foods like cocoa, act as antioxidants and help to counteract free radicals in the body.
Dark chocolate has been shown to lower blood pressure in people with high stress levels or chronically elevated blood pressure.
Eating dark chocolate on a regular basis has been attributed with reduction in LDL cholesterol by as much as 10%.
Chocolate is rich in seretonin, a natural anti-depressant. Eating chocolate also stimulates endorphin production, creating feelings of pleasure and satisfaction.
Chocolate has been found to inhibit cell division and reduce inflammation in patients which may be correlated with lower risks of cancer and reduced cancer severity in patients.
Theobromine, a natural component of chocolate, prevents tooth decay by eliminating the oral cavity bacteria, streptococcus mutans, that contributes to tooth decay.
A Dutch study followed 200 men over 20 years and found that large chocolate consumers lived longer than those who did not. Harvard used similar methods and found the same results. Learn more about chocolate’s secrets of longevity here.
The same Harvard and Dutch studies have attributed chocolate to lower disease contraction and consequential longer lifespans.
Cacao is extremely high in magnesium, an important mineral that helps to regulate the digestive, neurological, and cardiovascular systems.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that red wine and dark chocolate can protect the brain following a stroke by shielding nerve cells from further damage.
A study at California’s Salk Institute found that epicatechin, a chemical in chocolate, may improve memory.
An ingredient in chocolate may actually be a more effective cough medicine than traditional remedies, a new study suggests. And not only that, a UK-based research showed that the cocoa-derived compound had none of the side effects associated with standard drug treatments for persistent coughs.
London researchers found that after 3 months of eating chocolate with high levels of flavanols, their subjects’ skin took twice as long to develop reddening associated with the beginning of a burn.
Swiss scientists found that when people with high anxiety levels ate an ounce and a half of dark chocolate every day for two weeks, their stress levels were significantly lower and the metabolic effects of stress were partially mitigated.
Theobromine, which occurs in high levels in chocolate, has been found to quiet coughs and soothe throats without the traditional side effects of medication.
Frequent consumers of chocolate have been correlated with higher insulin regulation and response.
In a 9-year Sweedish study of more than 31,000 women, those who ate one to two servings of dark chocolate each week were 33% less likely to experience heart failure.
Chocolate contains Oleic acid, a healthy monosaturated fat that is also found in olive oil.
Chocolate improves blood flow particularly to the brain and the retina, allowing consumers to experience better shortterm vision.
Cocoa has anti-clotting and blood-thinning properties that work in a similar way to aspirin, which can improve blood flow and increase circulation.
In 1961, after 17 years spent first as a worker and then as a technician at various manufacturers of slicers, Corrado Lanza decides to take risks and leaves his job to start his own business in Cavaria.
While his wife Fausta and a couple of workers assemble the slicers in the laboratory near the house, Corrado travels on his scooter with two or three sample machines firmly tied to the luggage rack to visit the shops in the north and east of Milan where he always places good orders.
From time to time, a friend lends him a small car that he fills with slicers to go to the Veneto, another good source of new customers and orders.
This marketing view-and-sell technique soon ceases, as orders begin to arrive from abroad as well.
One of the most powerful and long-lasting success stories, word of mouth, has become a source of new markets for Corrado's machines.
Now FAC exports more than 50% of its products throughout Europe, North America and South America, Asia and South Africa.

We’ve created an energy-efficient, long-lasting and hygienic coffee machine equipped with all the features to produce outstanding espresso coffee.
We invite you to come and discover the reality of our big dream. The beautiful Big Dream is the result of years of development and the enthusiasm of a team of engineers with the ambition to change one hundred years of history
The first espresso coffee machine was manufactured more than 100 years ago. Since then, the materials used to manufacture coffee machines have barely changed.
Yes, 100 years…
100 years in which there has been a huge evolution in terms of the design, exterior materials and electronic devices that facilitate and improve coffee extraction… Yet inside, at the heart of the machine, nothing has happened for over a century. Brass and copper are still the main components of coffee machines. The technical characteristics of these materials tell us that thermal stability, energy efficiency, mechanical resistance and lime scale adherence to the components cannot possibly be optimal.
So… why not seek out the best?
Our technical team of dedicated engineers has devoted more than four years to this quest. We wanted to evolve. To change 100 years of history. There were other options out there, and they were better.
At our factory in Barcelona, we have engineered change: more than a century later, we have manufactured the first coffee machine that eschews the conventional materials of the previous century, replacing them completely with stainless steel.
