  • There’s metal in your dairy products (titanium dioxide)

    How about a side of silver with your yogurt? According to an ongoing inventory by the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies (PEN), 96 food items containing nano-sized particles of titanium dioxide—including many found in the dairy aisle—have hit the market. And that number is up from just eight foods in 2008. […] So what’s the big deal? In short, too many unanswered questions. In 2012, the FDA released a draft revealing its many safety concerns about nanoparticles in food. Specifically, they worry that nanoparticles alter the bioavailability, or how much your body can absorb of a substance, and may cause unforeseen...

    The 5,000-plus cups of the Greek yogurt that were supposed to be sent to the Sochi Olympics but were denied by Russian customs will instead be donated to New York City food pantries — but they are a tough sell, workers said on Thursday.

    According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) – a nonprofit food watchdog group – Dannon uses an ingredient known as carmine to give some of its fruit-flavored yogurt a pink color. Around 40,000 cochineal bugs are needed to produce just one pound of cochineal extract for the carminic acid, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization. In order to obtain the substance, the insects’ bodies are dried and then boiled in water. The CSPI argued that Dannon's use of carmine is cheating consumers, who believe that fruits are providing their yogurt’s color. They also maintain that...

    On New Year’s Day in 1988, Abdullah Ali, an Iraqi businessman who had been living in London for eight years, joined three compatriots for dinner at a restaurant called Cleopatra in Notting Hill.The next morning, he was taken ill with flu-like symptoms and was admitted to hospital. There his condition rapidly deteriorated — his hair fell out, he developed excruciating skin and joint pain, and paralysis and respiratory failure began to set in. Fifteen days later he was dead — but not before he had begun to wonder whether something had been added to his vodka. He was right: the...

    Environmental groups are pushing back against Governor Andrew Cuomo’s administration’s plan to support a growing yogurt industry by easing regulations on large-scale dairy operations. The Greek yogurt industry is growing so fast in New York that the state doesn’t have enough cows to meet the demand for milk. At a “yogurt summit” in August, Governor Cuomo called Greek yogurt one of the best entrepreneurial opportunities in a generation. Farms with up to 200 cows are exempt from rules requiring extra steps to prevent pollution from cow waste. Cuomo proposes raising the limit to 300 cows to help farms expand without...

    Last sum­mer a team of researchers from the Massa­chusetts Institute of Technology set out to better understand the effects of yogurt on obesity. They were following up on the results of a long-term study from the Harvard School of Public Health that had suggested yogurt, more than any other food, helped to prevent age-related weight gain. The M.I.T. team, led by cancer biologist Susan Erdman and evolutionary geneticist Eric Alm, wanted to replicate the work in mice. The researchers took a group of 40 males and 40 females and either fed the animals a high-fat, low-fiber, low-nutrient diet meant to...

    BOULDER, Colo. - President Obama's unscheduled stop tonight at The Sink Restaurant and Bar, a local watering hole on the University of Colorado campus, turned into a messy affair as he mingled with students and took photos outside. A young woman spilled yogurt on the president just as he was wrapping up and about to get back inside his armored black Chevy Suburban. The milky substance appeared to hit his pants, prompting the president to begin wiping himself off with a towel handed to him. "Getting yogurt on the president, you've got a story to tell," Obama told the lady,...

    Virginia State Police are investigating a case of road rage involving two drivers -- one armed with a gun and one with armed with a carton of yogurt. A Toyota Rav4 cut off a Lexus on Interstate 95 in Quantico Friday afternoon, said police spokesman Sgt. F.L. Tyler. After that, the driver of the Lexus started to tailgate the Toyota, and the Toyota driver responded by tapping on his brakes. At some point, the driver of the Lexus pulled up and threw a container of yogurt at the Toyota. That’s when the driver of the Toyota displayed a small caliber...

    Simultaneously increases nutritional value of the milk & fights global warming The first program in North America to naturally decrease global-warming gases caused by cows’ burps (enteric emissions) has been announced by environmental pioneer Stonyfield Farm, the world’s leading organic yogurt company (www.stonyfield.com). An unexpected benefit of the program is that it also significantly increases the nutritional value of the milk. “This is a watershed moment for the U.S. dairy industry,” said Stonyfield President and CE-Yo Gary Hirshberg. “By changing the feed we give our cows, we can simultaneously reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve milk’s nutritional content in a...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A judge on Wednesday dismissed murder charges against two men awaiting retrial in the 1991 slayings of four teens at an Austin yogurt shop, after prosecutors admitted they weren't ready to take the case to a jury. Robert Springsteen was sent to death row in 2001 after he was convicted in capital murder slaying of one of the girls. Michael Scott had been convicted in her death previously and sentenced to life in prison. Both convictions were overturned when the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals said Springsteen and Scott were unfairly denied the chance to cross-examine...

    Father’s Day weekend for the Obama girls included a ride in the presidential motorcade to get frozen custard from The Dairy Godmother on Saturday afternoon. Twelve dark vehicles wound thru small side streets to the Del Ray section of Alexandria, Virginia, a suburb of Washington. Liz Davis, owner of the frozen custard shop, said she had about 4 minutes of “lag time” between knowing she would have “a visitor” and the President walking in with his daughters. Although the flavor of the day was posted as butter pecan, the President ordered a small cup of vanilla frozen custard with hot...

    Food fight: Cheese bacteria fight off viral attacks By Julie Steenhuysen Reuters CHICAGO Mar 22, 2007 - Scientists have found a way to ensure starter cultures used to make cheese can ward off attacks from bacteria-eating viruses -- a finding that could mean the difference between a great Gouda and wasted milk. Attacks by viruses known as phages pose a particular problem for companies like Danish food ingredient maker Danisco, whose starter cultures are used in about half of all the ice cream and cheese produced in the world. "Phages are one of the major causes of product failure for...

    SEOUL, South Korea -- The Supreme Court has upheld a lower court ruling convicting a dairy executive for an obscene event promoting his company's yogurt, a news report said Thursday. The court upheld a lower court fine of 5 million won ($5,000) for the executive, identified by his family name Kang, Yonhap news agency reported, citing the top court's ruling. It also upheld fines of between 500,000 won ($500) and 2 million won ($2,000) on three models for staging a nude performance with the yogurt at a crowded Seoul art gallery in 2003, Yonhap said. The models, caked in wheat...

    PARIS (AP) - The French government signaled hostility to a foreign takeover amid rumored plans by PepsiCo Inc. to launch a takeover bid for Groupe Danone SA, sending the food company's shares to a new high. The stock rose 5.8 percent to close at 92.65 euros ($111.76), the Paris market's biggest gainer for a second straight day, after Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin said Danone was "among the jewels of our industry." The statement fueled speculation about an imminent offer from its U.S. rival. In New York, PepsiCo shares fell 94 cents, or 1.7 percent, to close at $54.60 Wednesday...

    JERRY Completano finally decided to undergo chemotherapy in August 2003. By then, his chronically high uric acid levels had spun off into what doctors called the nephrotic syndrome, a pre-cancerous condition that targets the kidneys. The chemical effects were swift. Jerry lost his appetite, lost weight, and felt increasingly weak. His hair started to fall. He was often constipated. And every day, for four agonizing hours, he would sit through debilitating headaches that, despite the painkillers, would only get worse with time. Desperate, he followed the advice of a friend to take food supplements that were being tested for commercial...
