Raw and Grassfed Scams

Raw and grassfed scams: How do you avoid them to obtain the most life-giving foods?

Raw and grassfed scams are common, especially now. Due to incredibly lax labeling requirements and large commercial producers that take full advantage of them, you need to be fully informed. Otherwise, you will be under the illusion that you are choosing the best food when it falls far short of what you think it is.

100% pasture raised raw milk, cream and other dairy products, and meats, particularly beef - are nutrient rich, high-octane foods.

Our true ancestral diet is food of animal origin. We survived through the Ice Age, and in some of the most formidable climates throughout history because we are apex predators. In some far-flung places such as the desolate, barren mountains of Kazakhstan today, people on such foods withstand very harsh conditions.

Our ancient forbears were in general far sturdier than we are. Countless people are regaining health they thought was lost by honoring our origins as obligate carnivores. Even if you live in an urban area, there are ways you can obtain similar benefits by following suit.

Raw and Grassfed Scams:
the Problem...

Raw and grassfed scams are common, especially now.

The problem is, many CAFO's (commercial agricultural feeding operations) are cashing in on your desire for such foods by making false claims. This chicanery is supported by the very agencies that are supposed to protect you.

Add to that, federal and state agencies often persecute the BEST farmers - who strive to provide you and me unheated 100% pasture-raised meats, milk, cream, butter and cheese - the most healing foods on earth.

How can you avoid raw and grassfed scams to find dairy, eggs and meats that are TRULY 100% raised on pasture from weaning to harvest with no confinement, of USA family farm origin, and not given antibiotics, hormones or vaccines?

The best way is to learn what to look for and read both front and back of the package. One example is that most people (including me in the past) think that the term 'vegetarian-fed' on poultry or eggs is good. It's not, because chickens and turkeys when pasture-raised eat a LOT of bugs, worms, etc., which makes egg yolks deep orange-yellow and gives the meat a rich golden glow.

Raw and Grassfed Scams:
Most Labels Lie

Raw and grassfed scams are ubiquitous in your Whole Foods or other health stores. You will see labels proclaiming 'raw,' 'grassfed,' or 'pasture-raised.' You may be fooled into thinking you are getting significant health benefits from these products. In most cases, you are not. These claims officially mean - NOTHING! (Just like the 'organic' label that also means nothing).

Are you sure that beef you buy from animals weaned, raised and finished on high-quality pasture? Is that cheese from 100% pastured animals and the milk not heated above 102 degrees? If you are one of a growing number of folks who value pasture raised meats and raw, unpasteurized dairy, you may be surprised to learn that most of the label info is false!

Raw and grassfed scams may include 'extra' ingredients you don't want - particularly if you are on carnivore diet: Some cheeses made by companies claiming their products are pure, raw, pasture raised - add CELLULOSE into their cheeses. This is not always indicated on the label!

Meat products as well, are being adulterated with cellulose and a host of other unhealthy additives such as emulsified vegetable oils, rice bran fiber, pectin and carrageenan.

Raw and Grassfed Scams
are Supported by Agencies

Raw and grassfed scams are supported by policies of the very agencies that claim to protect us!

Government agencies have so relaxed the standards that for the most part, producers can make any claim they want even if not true!

'After a lengthy public process that lasted several years, AMS introduced the grassfed standard in 2006. USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, the regulatory arm that approves meat labels, was charged with enforcing the standard for those who chose to use it. But because FSIS required no audit or other verification other than a producer-signed affidavit, the term was sometimes misused and was often confusing, both for producers and consumers. The growth of grassfed demand in the marketplace only fueled the misperceptions.

Going forward, FSIS will continue to approve the grassfed label claim, but producers will each define their own standards. FSIS is only considering the feeding protocol in their label approvals — other issues such as confinement; use of antibiotics and hormones; and the source of the animals, meat, and dairy products will be left up to the producer.'

Raw and Grassfed Scams: Duplicitous Claims


According to the PMO (Pasteurized Milk Ordinance) of the FDA, a definition for raw milk cheese can mean any temperature below pasteurized milk temperatures (even 1 or 2 degrees!). Pasteurized milk temperatures DESTROY most of the awesomely beneficial nutrients that are legendary in raw milk.

'When raw milk is heated significantly above body temperature; enzymes are inactivated, bacteria are killed, proteins are denatured, minerals are no longer in a bioactive and bioavailable matrix, vitamins are no longer bioavailable. All of these elements are essential to the health benefits and immune system building benefits of raw milk or its raw cheeses.' (2)

'There are approximately 2500 different proteins found in milk and each protein has a specific function.... Once these delicate proteins are pasteurized, then they are altered from their natural state.' (3)
