Food and Nutrition in the News

Edible News

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.

Every time there is a new recall of tainted food, irradiation companies and their proponents in government call for further centralizing our food distribution system and running all of our meat and produce through irradiation facilities.

There are no studies to show that, over the long-term, eating irradiated foods is safe. Add in the nutritional damage irradiation can do to some foods and we believe it is far too soon to allow large portions of the food supply to be irradiated.

Back in one of my first posts I have a recipe for "foldable" whole wheat bread. I mentioned Vital Wheat Gluten as a component of the bread - the one that lets the bread rise higher and lets it fold without crumbling.

I'm just now getting around to giving you the recipe to make your own gluten, also known as wheat meat. By making your own, you also get bran and starch to use. Yes, this is the same bran as in what you buy in the stores. You can add some sugar to it and make a cereal out of it, if I look around, I can probably find a recipe for Grapenut Flakes.

Dr. Thomas Cowan on how the A1 - A2 factor explains why even raw milk sometimes does not seem to be enough of an improvement over "store-bought"

"I have been involved in thinking about the medicinal aspects of cow's milk virtually my entire career. As one four-year-old child pointed out to me many years ago, "Mommy, I know why he always talks about milk, his name is Cow-an." So, I guess this milk "obsession" is no surprise. The obsession started in earnest about 25 years ago when I read the book The Milk of Human Kindness Is Not Pasteurized by maverick physician William Campbell Douglass, MD. This was one of the most influential books I have ever read...

Buying organic food does not ensure that the food is safe. It might be contaminated with--for example--salmonella. But organic food buyers expect more from organic food.

But organic food buyers expect more from organic food. What this means is that a safety problem with organic food probably undermines the value of organic food even more than safety issues affect non-organic food. This is an important point for us advocates of sustainability.

Many people eat genetically modified foods without being consciously aware of it. But the question is are genetically modified foods safe for human consumption?

Many of the processed foods readily available on grocery shelves have genetically modified ingredients. The most common genetically modified foods are soybeans, maize, cotton, and rapeseed oil. So many foods containing field corn or high-fructose corn syrup such as cereals, snack foods, foods made with soybeans (including some baby foods) and foods made with cottonseed and canola oils may have genetically modified components.

What's new? What's great? What's weird? Our columnist samples offerings from supermarket aisles and fast-food menus.

Babies do not have to eat baby food. After seeing how my sister fed my niece (steaming veggies, cutting them up in a small dice and putting them on her high chair tray to feed herself), I wonder why anyone buys insanely expensive little jars of food...

Does anyone know how to save money on organic foods? I am very health conscious and have recently decided it was best for my two young daughters and me to make a real effort to eat foods without preservatives and hormones.

Unfortunately, recent trips to local markets show how expensive it is to do just that. I had hoped Dollar Stretcher readers might have some advice on how to save money on organic/natural foods. Try your local farmers' market, where you are likely to find organic items available for considerably less than what you pay in the grocery stores.
