Food Wars Are On The Horizon

Labeling Food Destined For Restaurants The Legislative branch of the USA government thinks they’re helping small businesses by not requiring ingredient labeling on packaged foods destined for restaurants, claiming that labeling will increase the cost of the foods, thus hurt small businesses, when actually they’re helping the large corporations who manufacture those products. 

Transparency In food Labeling

Originally posted on ANIMAL-FREE SOUS-CHEF™ :
Why do companies hide animal ingredients under natural flavor label on products? They don’t want other companies copying their product; they need some secret ingredients. Otherwise someone else will sell the same product. Look, cooks and chefs do something similar when sharing a recipe. They write down the ingredients without…

Why Almost Identical – Sour Cream, Cream Cheese?

TOFUTTI FUDGING THEIR LABELS? Companies will most assuredly cite pandemic reasons for putting cream cheese into their sour cream containers or vice versa. Or, maybe they altered the recipe itself, bringing the two closer together in texture, viscosity, mouth feel and flavor. Or they didn’t have enough sour cream, so decided to sell cream cheeseContinue reading “Why Almost Identical – Sour Cream, Cream Cheese?”

Alcohol-Free vs Non-Alcoholic

non-alcoholic beer vs alcohol-free beer Who decided on non-alcoholic instead of alcohol-free? Who decided what to call it, how to reference it? Those who say general consensus or the street or one unidentified person and it just caught on, is usually the source.

Vaccines In The Animals You Eat

BIRDSEYE STEAMFRESH VEGETABLES aka my frozen pea adventure

At my local grocery these are the bags usually on sale, so I usually buy them. Although they’re made for microwaving, I’ve never done that, even though I have a microwave. I bring them to boil in water to cover, drain and use. I’m a big fan of frozen vegetables. Not the ones in sauces,Continue reading “BIRDSEYE STEAMFRESH VEGETABLES aka my frozen pea adventure”

Contains No Animal Products

The word PRODUCT. There are many definitions and uses for the word ‘product’. Most manufacturers at this time are not going to put on their labels ‘contains no animals’.

Labels + Current Diet Categories

Hardly anyone knows what vegan is even today nearly 40 years later. They’ve become familiar with the word, but not the meaning. They don’t get why vegans won’t eat a vegetarian burger made with egg whites, or that fish and chicken are animals. And what’s wrong with cheese? That’s not an animal. Well, real vegansContinue reading “Labels + Current Diet Categories”

Force-Feeding Labels

The reason why food companies and manufacturers won’t tell you what’s under the natural flavoring label is because it’s bad news. They want to trick you into eating animals, even if it’s a rat hair, which by the way, appears in most products along with mites and a lot of other microscopic stuff that evenContinue reading “Force-Feeding Labels”

Ingredient LABELING

You think you’re too big to fail. You think you don’t have to tell the customer what’s in the food product they’re buying with your company name on it? Because it’s made far away, you lost control of what goes in or gets left out or gets substituted? You present a long list of “Maybes”.Continue reading “Ingredient LABELING”
