Silver Spring Foods provide products to Culinology Students for Recipe Development


Silver Spring Foods (SSF) has developed a unique relationship with the Culinology Department at Southwest Minnesota State University (SMSU), in Marshall, MN. SMSU, under the direction of Dr. Michael Cheng, added Silver Spring products to their Fall semester, 2012 curriculum.

Some of the students created gluten-free and regular recipes. SSF employees traveled to SMSU to record cooking videos of some of the students making their recipes.

The week of January 7th-11th, there will be one cooking video (with recipes), posted every day on YouTube at, Facebook at, and Twitter @SilvSprngFoods.
