(Greg) This is the Kansas Soybean Update. It’s brought to you by the Kansas Soybean Commission. The Soybean Checkoff, Progress Powered by Kansas Farmers. Cindy Falk, Nutrition Educator with Kansas Wheat joins us. Cindy you also serve as Director of the National Festival of Breads, which was recently held in Manhattan. And once again it was a great success. (Cindy) That’s correct. We had a great attendance and we could not have a successful event without sponsors like the Kansas Soybean Commission. (Greg) And what was their involvement as far as sponsorship in the National Festival of Breads? (Cindy) The Kansas Soybean Commission was the premier sponsor of our Youth Division. And then they also provided the award in the Adult Division for the Best Bread Using a Soy Ingredient. We were really happy with the champion recipe. Smokehouse Cranberry Cheese Bread, it was created by and baked by Lisa Keys from Pennsylvania and she included tofu in her winning recipe. Of course, tofu is a great way to boost the nutritional content in her original recipe. (Greg) And I think that’s amazing that so much of this can be incorporated into this contest and that’s what makes it, I guess, more dynamic in that aspect too. (Cindy) You know I think that this is one example of the collaboration that we have between the other commodity groups in the state. The common goal is to improve the success of our farmers. And we know most of our farmers don’t just grow wheat or soybeans. So, we appreciate the Soybean Commission being a sponsor of our contest. And they also sponsored the Youth Category and the youth winner was from Maine, with her Wild Maine Blueberry Banana Nutbread. And she used soybean oil in her recipe. And then also they sponsored the Special Award for the best recipe using soy ingredients and that was made by Merry Graham of California and she entered a Kale-Goat Cheese Artisan Olive Bread. And she used soy milk, soy flour and soy oil in her winning recipe. (Greg) If anyone would like a copy of these recipes, I’m sure you can find them online. But where can they go to get that? (Cindy) All the recipes and photos of this contest is at nationalfestivalofbreads.com. Or you can stop by our Kansas Wheat Booth in the Pride of Kansas Building at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson in September and pick up the Annual Kansas Wheat Commission Recipe Booklet. (Greg) Well Cindy, congratulations on another great National Festival of Breads and we appreciate you joining us. (Cindy) Thank you. (Greg) That is Cindy Falk, Nutrition Educator with Kansas Wheat.
