MA-ME! The Tasty SnackBean - Delicious, healthy, on-the-go snacking made easy
What Is MA-ME!?
Edamame is a special variety of soybean harvested when it's young and green. It is one of the fastest growing health foods in the United States. MA-ME! gives you domestically-grown edamame in convenient, snack-sized packs, complete with a handy pocket for the leftover pods, making it the perfect snack for your on-the-go life!
Why Eat MA-ME!?
One snack-sized pack of Ma-Me! is high in fiber, only 80 calories, and provides 35 percent of your daily recommended soy intake. A diet rich in soy can help boost heart health by reducing cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Soy contains all eight essential amino acids and is a great source of isoflavones, a phytochemical that may prevent cancer, osteoporosis, and baldness. Isoflavones have also been shown to promote prostate health and reduce the symptoms of menopause. To learn more about the benefits of soy, visit the Soy Foods Association webpage.

MA-ME! In the News
In September 2006, Real Simple magazine highlighted MA-ME! as a great solution for snack cravings.
Sometimes the path you choose can take you in an unexpected direction. A trip to China not only made me a mother, it sparked an interest in maintaining a healthier diet.
After returning from China with my daughter Annie, my husband, Cliff Schwandner and I discovered edamame. We got hooked on it right away, and saw an opportunity to offer a snack to people that was actually good for them.
Our company name was inspired by our daughterís birth mother who had left a note with Annie that said her name was Chang, which means Bright Future.
The name, Bright Future, keeps us focused on the dual missions of the company: to create healthier futures for people by introducing them to the health benefits of soy and to call attention to adoption as a wonderful way to create a family. A generous portion of after-tax profits of MA-ME! goes to adoption related causes such as the Bright Future Adoption Foundation, a non profit organization dedicated to bringing children and prospective parents together through adoption.
- ANNE CHAMBERS, CEO of Bright Future Foods
Please share your family's stories and adoption experience by e-mailing email@example.com.
When you hear "I want my MA-ME!," we certainly hope you think of our Tasty SnackBean™ . But "I want my MA-ME!" can also be a gentle reminder of children around the world who need families. By purchasing MA-ME!, you're not only choosing a great, healthy snack, you're also making a choice that helps others. And 10 percent of after-tax profits of MA-ME! goes to adoption related causes.
Adoption is not just about statistics, it's about the stories. Every child is different; every adoption is different. The following stories are from the book Now We Are One with photographs by Michael Wilson and Words by David Wecker. Visit the Now We Are One website at www.nowweareone.com
The MA-ME! Cause in the News
As part of our commitment to creating "bright futures" (see the story and the cause), Bright Future Foods relies on Ohio family farmers to provide the freshest, tastiest soybeans imaginable for Ma Me! Itís our "think local, act global" way of supporting regional, domestic enterprises while substantially reducing our carbon footprint, because we donít have to ship the beans across the ocean. Which, of course, helps make Ma-Me! the truly green SnackBean
