Not Your Average Cashew Or Company: KARMA Introduces Innovative New Line of Nut Products Including Their Signature Wrapped Cashews

Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) March 08, 2014

KARMA™, a new company that is passionate about healthy living and is committed to bringing great tasting, high quality, and natural nut products to the world, has just introduced a trio of new cashew products, including their signature Wrapped Cashews™ as well as Roasted Cashews and Raw Jumbo Cashews.

The company’s Wrapped Cashew is unique in and of itself. KARMA has devised and utilizes an innovative, proprietary technique for processing the nuts that makes their natural skin edible. Wrapped Cashews have all the taste and healthful benefits of regular cashews, but with the skin on, the result is a more intense, nutty and flavorful taste experience.

In addition, according to Dr. Lisa Dean, who is a Research Food Technologist and Associate Professor in the Department of Food, Bioprocessing and Nutrition Sciences at North Carolina State University, studies have shown that by leaving the nut skins on, the health benefits of cashews increase exponentially. “Fruits and vegetables contain polyphenols that are reported to reduce oxidative stress and prevent chronic diseases. The ORAC test indicates that nut skins are a rich source of antioxidant compounds such as polyphenols and in un-blanched cashews, the ORAC value of the nut is increased by almost ten times over the level of blanched cashews.” She notes that one ounce of Wrapped™ Cashews has an ORAC value equal or slightly higher than one half cup of healthy berries such as blackberries and raspberries.

“The Wrapped Cashew is our signature product and is a very unique way to enjoy this highly versatile and healthful nut,” says Ganesh Nair, President of KARMA. “We put a great deal of passion and research into developing our proprietary method of processing the nuts and the end result is extraordinarily delicious, not to mention a smart snack choice.”

KARMA’s Roasted Cashews are dry roasted without oil and their nutty flavor is enhanced with just a touch of sea salt. Their Raw Jumbo Cashews are all natural, unroasted and unsalted and can be enjoyed as a snack or used as an ingredient in cooking. All KARMA nut products are non-GMO, gluten free, vegan, kosher, and have no artificial additives or flavors.

A Harvard University epidemiological study of 118,000 healthy women and men over 30 years, published in the New England Journal of Medicine in November 2013, showed strong evidence that eating nuts, including cashews, is linked to a significant decrease in the risk of dying from heart disease, cancer and other causes, of up to 20% over four years. Cashews are a great source of gluten-free protein and monounsaturated fats, high in copper and manganese, and a good source of magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin K, zinc and iron. In addition, cashew nuts contain less total fat than many other popular nuts, including peanuts, pecans, almonds, pistachios and walnuts.

Classified as one of four “noble” nuts (the others are walnuts, pistachios, almonds), the cashew originated in Brazil and made its way to India in the sixteenth century by way of Portuguese soldiers. Ironically, cashews are seemingly under marketed even though they have equal (if not higher in some cases) nutritional value and health benefits than the other noble nuts.

KARMA’s initial line of nut products draws from over 80 years of experience in sourcing, processing and exporting cashews. It took them over a decade to research and perfect the proprietary processing method they use for the Wrapped Cashews. From the beginning, the company determined that they should foster healthy and fulfilling lifestyle choices along with a “pay it forward” mentality both as part of their company culture and through their line of nut products. With this in mind, they created their company motto: Do Good. Eat Good. Feel Good.™

“At KARMA, we believe that goodness comes full circle and we strive to put our heart into everything we do,” says Nair. “This is why we’re committed to sourcing only the highest quality, best tasting cashews and we travel the world to do so.” Nair, who holds a Masters in Health Sciences & Technology from MIT, has worked in diabetes care for over 10 years and set up a training institute for diabetes health professionals in Paris, is acutely aware of the importance of healthy foods and diet in the prevention of so called lifestyle diseases.

All KARMA nut products are packaged in 10-ounce jars and retail for $ 9.89. They will initially be sold in a variety of natural, health food and specialty stores.

KARMA will have a booth in the Next Pavilion at the Natural Products Expo West Show at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA on March 7-9, 2014. For more information, contact info(at)karmanuts(dot)com or visit

Envoc Builds New and Improved Responsive Website for Ignite Partnership, LLC

Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) March 20, 2014

Envoc, a Louisiana-based custom software and web design firm, has designed and developed a new, innovative website for their client, Ignite Partnership. Ignite Partnership is a strategic consultancy and creative agency located in Richardson, Texas that specializes in brand marketing for high-profile clients.

The vision for the new site, first and foremost, was to make it responsive and able to adapt to all web-browsing devices. Due to the rapid pace users are moving towards tablets and mobile devices to access information on-the-go, having the website optimized for different devices ensures that the user experience is optimal in any viewing situation. This design also improves SEO (Search Engine Optimization), making the site more likely to be found in internet searches.

Since responsive design is not prevalent with Ignite’s competitors in the Dallas, Texas market, the new design also gives them a distinct advantage over their competitor’s websites. However, that edge is not solely what drew Ignite to this platform. Ignite also wanted its website’s design and development to mirror the fresh, new, and on-trend way that Ignite conducts work for its clients.

With these goals in mind, Ignite enlisted Envoc—experts in building responsive, custom websites—to get the job done. With Ignite’s input, Envoc designed and built a new site that sets a new standard in the Dallas marketing field, shows off Ignite’s high-profile clients, and highlights their portfolio of work. The website also uses modern web tools, including embedded video clips and subtle animation, to help demonstrate the agency’s capabilities and create a “vision” of Ignite’s expertise for prospective clients. By leading the pack in web presence, Ignite is letting their clients know that they’ll get a forward thinking and out-of-the-box experience with Ignite.

“The Ignite Partnership website presented a great opportunity to show off the agency’s creativity through the web design,” said Christine Maggi, Envoc Graphic and Web Designer. “Using influences from high-end retailers, beauty and fashion labels, and innovative leaders in technology, the design came together as a perfect representation of Ignite’s vast expertise. The ‘wow’ factor that Ignite Partnership delivers in their work is now apparent in their website.”

As important as the final product is, one of Envoc’s biggest priorities is assuring that the effort needed to get there is an enjoyable one. And in what has become an Envoc standard, both companies enjoyed working together immensely.

“Working with Envoc is always a great experience,” said Karl Langston, Sales & Marketing Director at Ignite. “Their staff of designers, web developers and project managers keep the client updated with progress and shares all business challenges or suggestions in a timely manner. We highly recommend Envoc to other marketing groups seeking a great online business development partner!”

With the new website launched, both companies are looking forward to Ignite’s continued success with their new sales and marketing tool.

LA Movers Recommend 5 Important Moving Supplies

(PRWEB) March 20, 2014

Melrose Moving Company has released a new blog post recommending 5 important moving supplies!

A successful move depends mostly on the object’s safety. The relocated items have to be transported in safe conditions. A good way of providing protection for objects is by packing them in the right way and by using high-quality supplies and materials.

Boxes and other wrapping materials are essential for a successful move. Boxes are great containers in which many small and medium objects can be packed. Shrink wrap and bubble wrap can provide protection against dirt and trepidation. Wrapping materials are especially used for fragile items. Blankets can also provide padding for larger items such as furniture or appliances.

Clients can now call a moving company in Los Angeles and ask for packing services. By doing this, they will not have to worry about collecting and purchasing moving supplies as a company will bring their own materials. Moving Companies use only professional tools and high quality moving supplies that will make any relocation easier and faster!

Melrose Moving Company is a Los Angeles-based residential and commercial moving company. Originally established in 1999, and has been so popular that the owner started various other moving companies, such as 1 Los Angeles Movers, Movers Los Angeles, and Los Angeles Commercial Movers, all of which are operated by Melrose Moving. The moving company is licensed by the Public Utility Commission (PUC), and has an A rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Melrose Moving accepts cash, checks, credit cards, and Paypal.

At this size, the credit card knife can easily be stored in a wallet, purse, pocket, or backpack. The credit card knife folds and snaps into position within seconds and has no metal hinges that are prone to rusting. The blade itself is made of high-grade surgical steel, ensuring that it remains durable, sharp, and rust-free throughout its lifetime. The design of the knife comes with a built-in safety sheath that prevents any potential injuries from carrying open blades, and the protective hand guard provides maximum grip.

These credit card knives have been endorsed by Discovery Channel star Mykel Hawke as one of the most efficient pocket knifes on the market. For a limited time, Jordan Victors through one of his connections is offering the credit card knife for free, with just the payment of shipping and handling.

“Even though traditional pocket knifes are supposed to be compact, they still add extra bulkiness that just gets in the way. Whether people find themselves in an emergency situation or just need a sharp knife within arm’s reach for convenience, the credit card knife is the ultimate go-to solution.”

Choosing The Ideal Type Of Cardboard Mailing Tube

Whatever your profession, you probably have, or will eventually have the need for mailing, shipping, transporting or storing documents, blueprints, banners or materials; in most of these cases, cardboard tubes are the perfect package to deliver your merchandise in the most protective encasing, while making a good impression, and occupying little space.

There are many different types of cardboard tubes, and sometimes, the decision of which one to use is not given all the importance it should have. For example, if you need to make a presentation using a poster or banner, you should not transport it in a plain brown mailing tube, as it would look poorly, and the impression you make on the attendants could be damaged; for this specific case you should use a telescoping tube, which will make you look more professional, and is not expensive at all.

The simplest type of cardboard tube is the brown one, which can be generally found in two presentations: with white plastic ending caps, or snap sealed. This type of tube is useful for paper documents that you need to maintain protected, they are reusable and recyclable, and can be purchased in almost any size imaginable. The principal advantage of using ending caps, is that they provide extra protection to the contents of the tube, as they help maintain the circular shape; another benefit is that by purchasing extra caps you will be able to cut the cardboard tubes to custom sizes, thus maximizing the efficiency of the product you bought. Snap seal are easy to close tubes that don’t require end caps or tape to be closed, they offer slightly lesser protection, but will help you save time, as you will just need to pinch the ends closed to seal them; they are ideal for making instant deliveries.

If you need to deliver your posters, blueprints, or any other type of print in a more attractive way, you can use white mailing tubes; these cardboard tubes are strong and are also reusable and recyclable, and always include the ending caps. You can use printed labels with your company logo to make them look even better, and make a superior impression when distributing your work. However, if you want your deliveries to stand out, use bright colored mailing tubes, which can be found in a wide variety of shades, from black to golden. These tubes are perfect to organize different types of documents by color.

Telescoping tubes are usually used to transport banners or posters to meetings or conferences; they are pre-sealed on each end with metal end caps, but come in two telescoping pieces for product insertion, and in most cases have a shoulder strap that makes for easy transportation.

Cardboard tubes can also be used to store important documents, and in this case, you should go for the square or triangular mailing tubes, which are easier to organize, and ideal for space saving. These tubes don’t use caps, but tabs to be closed. When needing to store bigger objects, like auto parts, construction materials or banners, use heavy duty tubes, which are a sturdy oversized version of the plain brown cardboard tube.

Whether your objective is to preserve your documents or objects in storage, or make a delivery to make a big impression, or just to transport an important blueprint safely while looking professional and being comfortable, be sure to explore the possibility of using cardboard tubes, and making the selection that best serves your needs.
