Brought to You By… Condiments

In sometimes surprising ways, associations play direct and indirect roles in bringing the products, services, and activities of daily life to people around the world. Even condiments.

Association for Dressings and Sauces: Time to break out the condiments for those summer picnics and barbecues you’ve got planned. And don’t worry about the mayonnaise going bad. Contrary to popular belief, commercial versions of this popular sandwich and salad ingredient will not cause foodborne illness if left out in the sun, according to the Association for Dressings and Sauces.

National Barbecue Association: Depending on what region of the country you’re from, you might prefer your barbeque sauce with varying degrees of vinegar, ketchup, molasses, or mustard. Regardless of how you like your sauce, you can beef up your outdoor grilling repertoire with some recipes from the National Barbecue Association.

North American Olive Oil Association: One of the healthiest condiments, olive oil comes in several different types. The North American Olive Oil Association can help you bone up on the different flavors and uses of the extra virgin, regular, and light-tasting versions of this heart-healthy fat.
