What is it with the FDA - why are the labels on our food in the United States of America not transparent?
This is scary stuff. Why do we regulate labels if they don't tell us the truth? What are your feelings?
My feeling is that the less processed food we eat-- the better off we are.
Eating from our own gardens and local farms and producers is best, but not always possible for most people.
After all the cases of e coli, salmonella, etc., the response wasn't to improve the conditions of the animals and feed them what they're supposed to naturally eat. The response was to kill bacteria with ammonia so that people wouldn't be afraid to eat the meat, despite the possible long-term effects.
The FDA does a few things to protect consumers, but the big bucks are paid to protect the industry, so the FDA doesn't mind letting things slide. As far as orange juice goes, I don't buy juice in the store, because it's either concentrated or pasteurized.
Freshly squeezed juice doesn't have a long shelf life, so they pasteurize it, making it nutrient void, toss some synthetic vitamins in it and tell you how healthy it is. I juice my own fruits and vegetables and leave the other crap at the store. Best bet is to buy directly from the farmer in terms of beef, chicken, etc. and catch your own fish.
Right you are. I can't drink store bought orange juice. Not won't - can't. But I can squeeze oranges fresh and make my own juice and I have no problems. That tells me something very basic. Eat food as close to the way nature intended. Adding ammonia to beef wouldn't be necessary if animals were properly and humanely raised and fed. I can't tell you how sick to death I am of the main stream food industry and their practices.
Your title suggests their is ammonia in orange juice, which is not what the articles says. Just that it has bits of orange in it other than juice.
We live in a sick, sick, sick society. That's why we're all sick.
Now we have to grow our own orange trees in order to squeeze pure 100% Natural orange juice and get the real thing, since what we buy is not 'truth in labeling"
Thanks for the news.
In Europe I believe they have purity laws. I have always said they would put arsenic in food in America if they could get away with it. And what
ya know chicken meat has arsenic. All the major American beers are watered down, so people will drink more. In America money dictates the corporate ethic.
Right - O. I buy as much organic as I can but I'll buy Irish butter or cheese knowing the animals are raised differently. No worries about eating produce in Europe as long as it's not imported from America. I guess it doesn't work that way. We have to import everybody else's stuff but they don't have to import ours.
Orange juice made in the way described in the article is organic.
They put it into the Chicken Feed to. Visit NaturalNews.com and search for Ammonia Chicken and I'm sure it will come up.
I read stuff like this and remember how lucky I am to live in an area with lots of organic local food production.

It was bad when we found out recently that McDonald's, Taco Bell and Burger King had "pink slime in their food. Still, it only affected me a little since I rarely eat fast food. I was pretty ticked,...

I drink orange juice w/o pulp and I have always wondered why, if there is no pulp, does it always say "Shake Well"? No matter what brand I have bought.Why do you think so?
