  • Dairy Farmer Sues FDA for the Right to Label His Skim Milk as “Skim Milk”

    modernfarmer.com ^ | April 10, 2018 | By Dan Nosowitz
    If we had an actual, physical folder of evidence that the food labeling system in the United States is broken, it'd be full to bursting. And we'd be adding "skim milk????" to the list right about now. Maryland dairy farmers Randy and Karen Sowers are, with the help of the Institute for Justice (a non-profit libertarian-leaning law firm), suing the Food and Drug Administration for essentially doubling down on a very silly law. The gist: South Mountain Creamery, the dairy producer owned by the Sowerses, want to sell milk without the addition of any synthetic chemicals. To do this, they...

    Last week, at least two dozen producers who ship milk to Dean Foods in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and Ohio were told they have until May 31, 2018 to find a new home for their milk. “Unfortunately, Dean Foods has made the difficult decision to end milk procurement contracts with a number of farmers in about 90 days,” says Reace Smith director of corporate communications at Dean Foods. “We regret this decision had to be made.” If this sounds familiar that’s because, almost one year ago, producers in Wisconsin were told by their processor, Grassland Dairy, that they...

    Scientists at San Francisco-based biotech start-up Muufri -- (get it, moo free?) -- have developed a formula to re-create cow milk: six proteins for structure and function and eight fatty acids for flavor and richness, according to Muufri’s website. The milk product is also free of lactose and cholesterol and because it’s created in a lab, its seen as a sustainable alternative to traditional dairy cattle operations. According to Muufri, lactose is “partially indigestible by 75 percent of adults,” so the decision to leave it out creates a healthier product. Founders of Muufri, Ryan Pandya, Perumal Gandhi and Isha Datar,...

    The milk primarily targets infants allergic to cow’s milk. Camel milk for centuries was a staple for Bedouin peoples across the Gulf, who continue to include the vitamin-rich milk in their modern-day diets. A UAE-based company has unveiled what it calls the world’s first camel-based baby formula, an instant powder mix aimed mainly at infants allergic to cow’s milk. The Emirates Industry for Camel Milk & Products, or “Camelicious”, on Monday unveiled the product at Gulfood 2018, an international food and beverage trade event which runs from February 18 to 22 in Dubai. The milk, which it says is suitable...

    The White House says the changes could save $214 billion over a decade. “The Budget proposes to combine the traditional retail-based SNAP electronic benefit with the direct provision of nutritious and 100 percent American-grown USDA Foods to participating households. This cost-effective proposal maintains our commitment to helping needy families avoid hunger while generating substantial savings,” the budget said. Households receiving $90 per month or more would get a portion in shelf-stable milk, ready to eat cereals, pasta, peanut butter, beans and canned fruit, vegetables, and meat, poultry or fish. The remainder of the benefit would go onto the debit card...

District police chief Sohail Habib Tajak said Wednesday a judge has allowed police to question the woman for two weeks. Tajak says the woman, who was not identified, was married against her will in September.

  • You can now add this cheese to your list of anti-inflammatory foods (seriously!)

    Sticking to an anti-inflammatory diet isn’t easy. It involves cutting ties with gluten, dairy, and (of course) sugar. Sure, there are some amazing nut cheeses, but they aren’t typically what’s being cut into cubes and passed around on Bachelorette Mondays at your friend’s place. Good news: Scientists just endorsed a way for you to get your cheese fix while still sticking to your meal plan. According to Metro UK, a new study out of Korea found that the probiotics in Swiss cheese actually have the ability to reduce inflammation and strengthen your immune system. Is your mind-blown? A new study...

    If you consider buying a farm or you already have some field and want to use it for this purpose, you would need to know about 10 easiest goat breeds to raise. First of all, you need to know why to choose goats instead of cows, pigs, or sheep? They give the same product as these three breeds, but products of cows, pigs, and sheep are more in demand. Well, that is true, but, when you look at the numbers, you will see that raising goats is more profitable and better in every matter than keeping these three. First of...

Gowns can be rented for a special day. A white (or black) bowtie could be borrowed from that dependable friend.

    PETA’s shenanigans vary from the absurd to the downright offensive. From likening rape survivors to pigs and cows, to calling Pokémon a form of animal cruelty, PETA’s efforts to “save the animals” always make the headlines—and with good reason: they’re completely absurd. The animal rights group today released a new video to cry over milk, equating the nutritious drink with Nazism. Following the rise in Trump Derangement Syndrome and the progressive left’s hysteria over white supremacism, PETA states: “Did you know that milk has long been a symbol used by white supremacists?” It’s an alternative fact accompanied by an equally...

    When you think of milk, what first comes to your mind? If you’re a millennial, you probably think of strong bones, Got Milk? commercials, or maybe eating your favorite cereal while watching cartoons on a Saturday morning. What about racism? White nationalism? If you’re having trouble finding the connection between these institutions and milk, you’re not alone. You, along with the rest of the nation, have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts. It may not surprise you that the United States was founded...

    In an op-ed featured in the California State University-Long Beach student paper Daily 49er, Samantha Diaz follows up on stories about the silly usurpation of milk by white supremacists by arguing that yes, the dairy beverage really is racist. All of us have been “so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk,” Diaz writes, “that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts.” But … aren’t our dietary guidelines science? And aren’t progressives all about science, especially in this Age of Trump? Apparently not when “there is a deep-rooted [American] tradition to suppress an entire...

    At the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City on a Friday night, neo-Nazis and other trolls danced shirtless in front of a camera. The livestream setup had originally been established by actor Shia LaBeouf as an anti-Trump art installation. But the project has since become a broadcast outlet for white nationalism.Amid all the tattoos of Third Reich iconography bouncing around, one thing stood out: The neo-Nazis were all drinking milk. They spat it out as they danced, letting it dribble down their chins. Milk, the longtime staple for growing children, is now the new, creamy symbol of white racial purity...

    Got milk? Twenty-five members of Congress say if it's from soybeans, almond or rice, it should not be labeled as milk. Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) and Rep. Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), leading the bipartisan charge against “fake milk,” signed a letter along with other congressional members, asking the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to investigate and take action against manufacturers of “milk” that doesn't come from cows.
  • America’s Dairy Farmers Dump 43 Million Gallons of Excess Milk (WSJ Oct. 12, 2016 10:59 a.m. ET)

    Farmers in the U.S. are pouring out tens of millions of gallons of excess milk, amid a massive glut that has slashed prices and has filled warehouses with cheese. More than 43 million gallons’ worth of milk were dumped in fields, manure lagoons or animal feed, or have been lost on truck routes or discarded at plants in the first eight months of 2016, according to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. That is enough milk to fill 66 Olympic swimming pools, and the most wasted in at least 16 years of data requested by The Wall Street Journal....

    For Perumal Gandhi and Ryan Pandya, the impetus to start their company in 2014 really came down to cheese. Gandhi, now 25, was trying to cut back on meat and dairy for sustainability and animal welfare reasons, but he desperately missed pizza. Pandya, 24, was experimenting with veganism but one incident in particular gave him pause: He bought a bagel slathered with dairy-free cream cheese that was so sad and soppy that it dripped all over his leg. “It’s asking a lot of someone to become vegan,” says Pandya. Cheese is only the beginning. As he puts it, “you have...
