Most people get scammed when shopping for the high-end, unprocessed, nutrient-dense foods… Even if the USDA has changed regulations about the use of the marketing term “grass-fed” in 2007 to make sure it really means the cattle are 100% grass-fed for their entire life… turns out that the whole regulatory program is applied on a voluntary basis. Believe it or not, this is the reality of most of the pricey foods you are buying. In the United States, Ranchers and Distributors can get away with using marketing and branding catch phrases to establish claims and promote false expectations. The regulations are not strict and the standards are often vague– thus the consumer is tricked!!!
Know your farmer, know the people behind the product you buy, and look for smaller producers to ensure higher quality and standards. It is not easy, nor is it cheap, to do things the right way so if you are willing to pay a premium people– make sure you’re getting what you want!
