Office Paper Without Trees? - Yes: TREE FREE PAPER MADE FROM SUGARCANE AND BAMBOO
Sugarmade Paper is involved in the manufacture and marketing of environmentally friendly tree free paper for home and office environments under the Sugarmade brand name. Sugarmade paper is 100% tree free made primarily of sugarcane waste, called bagasse, that if not recycled would be discarded or burned. Sugarmade™ is 100% reclaimed sugarcane fiber, enhanced with bamboo.* Sugarcane fiber, bagasse, is a discarded by-product of sugar production, generally disposed of by burning—sending plumes of greenhouse gasses into the air. Yet, it’s ideal for papermaking. Bagasse is denser in cellulose fiber than wood pulp, producing the same amount of paper with less raw material, less water, less energy and less waste. And, bagasse is renewable in cycles of less than 1 year—whereas trees take 7 to 10 years. Even our bleaching process is elementally chlorine free (ECF). The end product is a strong, ultra-white office paper that’s 100% biodegradable, compostable and recyclable. Sugarmade multipurpose paper meets or exceeds industry standards providing excellent performance, dramatic green benefits and exceptional value. Sugarmade paper performs on office and home equipment with no issues related to jamming, misfeeding, paper curl, paper dust, or image performance. The average office worker uses 10,000 sheets of paper a year. Feed your copiers and printers a steady diet of Sugarmade and amazingly, that one staffer conserves 400 pounds of wood, and 985,000 BTUs of energy, reduces greenhouse gasses by an eye-tearing, throat choking 203 pounds, slashes wastewater by 913 gallons and solid waste by a whopping 93 pounds.

SeasoningStix International, LLC. In 2014, Sugarmade, Inc. acquired 20% interest in SeasoningStixs International, LLC and on the patents for unique food science technology that allows for the seasoning of meats, fish and poultry from the inside out. Sugarmade, Inc. and SeasoningStixs International, LLC have recently entered into negotiations for Sugarmade to acquire an option to purchase the remaining 80%. Professional chefs and home cooks know how extremely difficult it is impart flavors into meats, fish and poultry. Applying seasoning to the outside prior to cooking is of limited use and it also can produces bad flavors as a seasoning burns during the cooking process. Applying seasoning after cooking is also of limited use because very little of the flavors penetrate into the food. To compensate for these inadequacies, cooks have turned to marinades in order to impart flavor to not only to the outside of the food, but also in an attempt to flavor the inside of the meat.However, any serious food scientists will tell you that marinades are of limited use and typically penetrate less than one quarter of an inch into the meat, fish or poultry. This inability to impart flavor directly into meat has been an issue for chefs, average cooks and backyard barbecue enthusiasts for generations. This is why we need your help to bring SeasoningStix to the marketplace – we feel strongly we have a better way. We can seasoning meat, fish and poultry from the inside out.By combining aspects of food science, high-tech manufacturing processes and healthy eating we have developed and patented a new process for seasoning meats, fish and poultry from the inside out. We call this revolutionary food science technology SeasoningStix.
To understand how Seasoning Stixs work a little bit of food science education is required. One of the main issues that food scientist will explain to you relative to seasoning meat is that meat is mainly water. Water cannot be compressed, but must be displaced and until the water moves out of the way the seasoning cannot get into the meat fibers to flavor the dish. If water could be displaced from the meat fibers prior to cooking, seasoning would be easy, but of course this simply isn't possible. Fortunately, as the meat, fish or poultry is grilled, roasted, barbecued or otherwise heated, the water is displaced through evaporation. As this water displacement occurs the optimal time for seasoning the meet also occurs. This is where Seasoning Stixs is specifically designed to perform. Utilizing a sophisticated, patented process and a high tech hydraulic press machine that exerts over 20,000 pounds per square inch of pressure, we combine various spices into a hard solid shape that can then be inserted directly into meat, fish or poultry prior to cooking. Think of Seasoning Stixs as looking similar to a thin wood matchstick with a sharp point on one end, but rather than being made of wood it can be made of virtually any spice combination you desire. You simply insert the Seasoning Stixs into the food prior to cooking.
As heat is applied during the cooking process, the fibers of the meat begin to open up as water begins to evaporate. At approximately 100°F the Seasoning Stixs begins to change from a hard solid back into a powdered solid, which is taken up into the meat fibers in a similar manner to how water is absorbed by a sponge. Thus, the meat is seasoned from the inside out imparting fantastic flavors that had previously been impossible to obtain. The process of imparting flavors from the inside out with SeasoningStixs works equally well you are roasting, brazing, grilling or barbecuing. Cooks who have begun to embrace sous vide methods should especially be interested in Seasoning Stixs as while sous vide does provide very precise temperature and timing control, the method imparts little to no flavors that are obtain via other cooking methods. Seasoning Stixs will allow the sous vide cook to impart desired flavors directly into the meat from the inside out. More information on SeasoniStix can be viewed at www.SeasoningStixs.com.
