Edible News

After watching several documentaries about our food supply and learning just how deficient in nutrients the food we consume has become over the past 30-years, our family has decided to make some serious changes. We are buying organic, eating in season and buying locally. Our meat is grassfed, our bread in homebaked and I feel good about what my family is eating.

Papayas are one of the healthiest, most delicious fruits out there. Rich in vitamins A and C for your skin and immune system, full of enzymes that aid digestion and reduce bloating.

Their sweet, tropical taste is also great whether you eat them alone, use them in a smoothie, in a fruit-based salsa, over oatmeal, or even blend them with some citrus to make a salad dressing. However, as you might have already heard, these tropical fruits are also one of the most frequently genetically modified crops, and unless you know what to look out for at the store, it can be tricky to find one that's free of GMOs if it's not labeled organic or GMO-free (most aren't).

The pending "compromise" GMO labeling bill has food safety and consumer advocates both in and out of government scrambling to block the legislation, which they warn will destroy popular efforts to label products made with genetically modified (GMO) ingred

The legislation is seen as a direct threat to a GMO labeling law passed in Sanders' home state of Vermont, which is slated to take effect on Friday. Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy, also from Vermont, on Tuesday declared his opposition to the legislation.

Nearly all food labels in Vermont are now required to disclose when products include genetically engineered ingredients. The requirement, passed two years ago, became effective on Friday.

The rule is the first of its kind in the United States, and although it applies only within the tiny state, it is having national impact. Most major food and beverage companies have already added language to their labels to meet the new rule, rather than deal with the logistical hassle of having separate labels for different states. Campbell Soup was the first big company to say it would label all of its products, and General Mills, ConAgra, Mars and Kellogg's followed.

After living in Arizona for many years, my family and I love good Mexican food, including the staple: tortillas.

I love to be in the kitchen - creating and working - and you'll usually find me there, singing, rocking a baby to sleep while mixing, reading oral copy work for my children... but when making tortillas, I'm usually in a less-than-stellar mood. Downright crabby! Recently, my husband steered clear of the kitchen on a tortilla-making day. A few minutes later, however, he reappeared, lurking around like he had something to say. "Why don't you just make tortillas like you make crepes? Wouldn't that be easier?"

When left untreated, the condition may worsen to develop cardiac symptoms, neurological conditions, and arthritis. Lyme disease can be a life-changing illness.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large saucepan and fry the mince until browned - you may need to do this in batches. Set aside as it browns. Put the rest of the oil into the pan, add the vegetables and cook on a gentle heat until soft, about 20 mins.

When you think of monosodium glutamate (MSG), what is the first thing that comes to mind? More than likely it is Chinese cuisine, however, this same ingredient is also found in several other food products we use everyday.

Almost all processed foods on the grocery store shelves ranging from soups to crackers to meats contain MSG to enhance their flavor. MSG is also an ingredient in vaccines. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Vaccine Excipient and Media Summary lists five vaccines that contain monosodium glutamate...

In April 2014, at the age of 22, I was diagnosed with a severe tree nut allergy. Yes -- adult onset food allergies. It started with just tree nuts, and I only reacted if I actually ate one.

I'm a self-sustaining woman; I live on my own, I am in graduate school, I work full time, and I have a man-child (my boyfriend). My world was pretty much turned upside down by these food allergies, and aside from the insurmountable learning curve I have had, and continue to endure, everyday life still proves to be a challenge in ways that most people without food allergies don't even think about. So, the next time you encounter a person with food allergies, I hope you remember some of these points -- even just one would be helpful to know.

Onions are a crucial ingredient in almost any delicious meal. But you might not know that they have some great health benefits, too, and not just when it comes to nutrition!

Simply cut an onion in half and hold it on the burn until the pain goes away. The juices act as an immediate pain reliever, and the onion's natural antiseptic properties can prevent scarring and reduce the risk of infection.

Reports that 80% of Ukraines soybean crop is grown from illegal genetically-modified seeds are "probably true," Mykola Kovalski, chief strategy officer at Astarta, told the Agrimoney Investment Forum.

Astarta, a Ukrainian agribusiness which is the country's largest sugar producer, buys non GM seeds from Canada, Mr Kovalski said. The non-GM meal produced means the company receives a premium for its product. But Mr Kovalski noted that it was "difficult to estimate" the scale of GM planting across the country, with fields of non-GM and GM soybeans plant "It is a problem for us" he said.
