  • Flax seeds have been cultivated for thousands of years and have skyrocketed in popularity as an added ingredient in a wide variety of foods like crackers, cereals and frozen waffles. A lot of consumers are looking for healthier products these days.

    Flax seeds have been cultivated for thousands of years and have skyrocketed in popularity as an added ingredient in a wide variety of foods like crackers, cereals and frozen waffles. A lot of consumers are looking for healthier products these days. Getting a health benefit directly from the food they eat instead of supplements saves time and money. Flax is sought after for the Omega 3 essential fatty acids, lignans and fiber it contains and there is evidence that it may help reduce risk in heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Flax is becoming more popular agriculturally as well. If you buy eggs that are higher in Omega 3′s you are getting the benefits of flax, the chickens that lay the eggs have been fed a diet high in flax!

    The flavor of flax is similar to a very light nutty flavor, very close to a mild English walnut, in my opinion. Whole flax seeds are shelf stable, but can go rancid if you grind them up. If you do grind them before use put them in a sealed container in your fridge. Consider adding them to baked goods, as well as dips and salsa. They are also great as a salad topper, breakfast cereal addition or finely ground in a smoothie.

  • I bought green coffee beans for a year when we roasted our coffee on site and I became much more familiar with the grades, varieties and growing regions involved with coffee. Coffee grows best in subtropical regions and high altitudes with well defined rain seasons. As with any agricultural product, soil types, regions and altitude all contribute to the taste and quality of the coffee.

    I bought green coffee beans for a year when we roasted our coffee on site and I became much more familiar with the grades, varieties and growing regions involved with coffee. Coffee grows best in subtropical regions and high altitudes with well defined rain seasons. As with any agricultural product, soil types, regions and altitude all contribute to the taste and quality of the coffee. The skilled timing of the roaster determine how long the coffee is roasted and what beans are blended for the final taste profile. Roasting a shorter time lets more of the natural beans’ flavor profile emerge and coffees that are roasted a longer time tend to have a slight ash flavor that is to me, a flavor which is surprisingly popular. The food comparison would be a chocolate chip cookie – bake it a little less and it tastes more raw, like the ingredients, bake it longer and the same cookie takes on a different taste – crispy and caramelized, still good, but very different. The roaster tries to get the roast level consistent from batch to batch so the best flavors of the coffee are brought out. We now source our roasted coffee from Northwest coffee, here in St. Louis, and their roasting skill and coffee quality is phenomenal.

  • Straub's is proud to announce that we are the first store in the United States to offer Surat Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Lycopene!

    Straub’s is proud to announce that we are the first store in the United States to offer Surat Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Lycopene! Imported from Spain, this oil is infused with lycopene direct from the skins of tomatoes. Exceptionally light and flavorful, this high quality oil is processed naturally with lingering tomato notes. Ingesting Surat plus Lycopene leads to an 85% increase in absorption of this powerful antioxidant versus regular consumption of raw fruits and vegetables. Lycopene is a very natural and potent antioxidant that belongs to the family of carotenoids. It gives the characteristic red color to tomatoes, watermelons, and, in lesser quantity, to other fruits and vegetables. It provides very beneficial properties to our health as it acts by protecting the body cells from oxidative stress:

    • Anti-aging
    • Reduced cholesterol levels
    • Prevention of cardiovascular diseases
    • Prevention of degenerative diseases
    • Increased male fertility
    • Reduced risk of cancer

    A Useful Tip: the natural color of tomatoes is captured in the vibrant orange hue of the oil. Try using it on steaks and other red meats to make a brilliant presentation! Also great for adding a little sheen to a cheese platter, or drizzled over pasta, pizza, and vegetables.
