rBGH (hormone) Milk

Why You Don’t Want rBGH (rBST) in Milk – No More … – YouTube

Holy Cow: Why rBGH-Free Dairy Matters Sarah Lozanova October 11, 2017 earth911.com
“Recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), or recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST), is a synthetic growth hormone that has been commercially available for 20 years. This seemingly promising drug was developed by agricultural biotech company Monsanto to boost milk production by up to 30 percent. Unfortunately, what seemed like a dream come true for farmers had unwanted side effects in humans and dairy cows alike.

Dairy cows injected with rBGH have a significant increase in health problems, including udder infections (commonly treated with antibiotics), a greater risk of lameness and serious animal reproductive problems. Some studies have linked rBGH use to a variety of human health effects, such as tumor development, and prostate, breast, colon and other cancers..”

This is the healthiest milk for you – YouTube

“..Hindustan Times
Published on May 20, 2018
Full fat, whole cream, double toned milk – if the different types of dairy milk were not enough to confuse you, today you also have nut-based and plant-based milks. As the vegan community grows in number, almond milk and soy milk have also seen a surge in popularity. “Milk is a high-quality protein, due to presence of all essential amino acids. These amino acids are required for tissue building and repair, playing an important role in immune function, taking part in various biochemical reactions and are vital for metabolism. Protein from dairy helps reduce muscle breakdown post exercise, due to its rich amino acid profile,” says Swati Bhushan, chief clinical nutritionist, Fortis Hiranandani Hospital, Mumbai. According to Bhushan, a glass of milk (200 ml) is packed with approximately 6 – 7 grams protein and 200- 300 mg of calcium, meeting about 30 – 50% of our daily requirement of calcium. Naturally occurring calcium from dairy products is readily absorbed by our bodies. Calcium helps build strong bones and teeth, plays an important role in improving bone density and in turn decreases the risk of osteoporosis…”

Goat Milk Benefits Are Superior to Cow Milk November 22, 2018 By Rachael Link, MS, RD draxe.com
“..Goat milk is a type of milk produced by goats. It’s high in many essential nutrients and is a good source of vitamins and minerals like calcium, phosphorus, riboflavin and more. It’s also rich in medium-chain fatty acids. Medium-chain fatty acids are a type of heart-healthy fat that is associated with a wealth of impressive health benefits…”

“..The difference between cow and goats milk

More of us are becoming increasingly aware that cows’ milk may not suit us and have started to seek an alternative that is better suited to the needs of our body. Goats’ milk is nutritionally closest to cows’ milk than other alternatives and yet it has certain physical properties that set it apart, which may impact on digestibility and health1. Many people who perceive they have issues with cows’ milk can drink goats’ milk without any problems, and even say that their symptoms (such as eczema; asthma; bloatedness; constipation; digestive discomfort and catarrh) are reduced or go away altogether. More comprehensive scientific research is needed to confirm these anecdotal benefits, but there are a number of studies that have focused on the differences between the two milks.1,2,3,4,5..”

Dairy Free

The 5 Healthiest Dairy-Free Milk Alternatives by: Yuri Elkaim yurielkaim.com
“..Many holistic healthcare practitioners advise against including dairy in your diet (myself included), and suggest using alternatives to milk instead.

But on the flip side, we’re constantly told that dairy is the best source of calcium on the planet.

As a result, it’s become one of the most frequently debated health and nutrition tips: Should you really be avoiding cow’s milk?

Calcium is a mineral we need for healthy bones and teeth, not to mention a healthy cardiovascular system. But is cow’s milk really the best way for humans to obtain this nutrient?

Let’s find out by taking a closer look at how cow’s milk works in the body. ..”

Top 5 Healthiest Milk Alternatives
1. Almond Milk

Since almonds are a great plant-based dietary source of calcium, they make an ideal healthy milk alternative…

2. Coconut Milk

Coconut is what I refer to as a “clean and lean” fat because it’s from a plant-based source, and is rich in essential fatty acids…

3. Hemp Milk

Hemp makes another great milk alternative to dairy, and is extremely rich in plant-based protein, and omega 3 essential fatty acids. Omega 3’s aid in digestive health, and aren’t found in cow’s milk, unless the cow has been grass-fed. (And even still, the amount of omega 3 fats found in hemp hearts are superior to dairy products.)

….
4. Rice Milk

Rice milk is an ideal milk alternative for those who are sensitive to cow’s milk and nuts. While it’s lower in protein than nut milk, it still offers plenty of B vitamins and minerals such as selenium and manganese.

5. Cashew Milk

Cashew milk has become another popular alternative to cow’s milk because of it’s versatile, creamy texture. Cashews are also a popular plant alternative to use in recipes for vegan cheeses and other mock-dairy recipes.

Drinks: Spotlight-Root Beer

A tasting of nine “natural” root beers yields surprising results By Lou Bendrick on Jul 15, 2009 grist.org
“..Today, your beverage aisle might showcase retro, handcrafted “root sodas” with exotic spices, certified organic root beers, a green-tea root beer, and a diet root beer spiked with an eco-sounding plant-based sweetener. You might even be able to find a local root beer with an ostensibly lighter carbon footprint. OK, so what’s a green-minded, confused consumer like you to do, short of licking your cracked lips, throwing up your hands, and heading to the nearest vending machine?..

Maine Root
Ingredients: Carbonated pure water, organic fair trade–certified cane juice and spices (according to the website, the company uses extracts of wintergreen, clove, and anise).
Eco-claim: Organic fair trade–certified cane juice (though not USDA organic certified). Also, if you happen to live near Portland, Maine, you can take a small comfort in knowing that this root beer will be delivered via a biodiesel VW Jetta.
Price: $7.16 / four-pack of glass bottles..

…The bottom line: Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value Brand root beer tastes great and doesn’t contain HFCS. It may not be earnestly green, handcrafted, exotic, or zero-cal, but its low price means that you might be able to afford to top if off with a big dollop of really yummy organic vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!”

Virgil’s Root Beer

PHOTOGRAPH COURTSEY OF REED’S

Also from the purists at Reed’s, Virgil’s Root Beer is root beer made the way nature intended, by brewing a combination of herbs and spices naturally, rather than concocting a chemistry experiment of artificial flavorings, dyes, and additives. The ingredients list reads like the gatherings of a world traveler–anise from Spain, vanilla from Madagascar, molasses from the U.S., and balsam oil from Peru–and will get you off that artificial canned stuff forever. However, good as it is, this soda won’t win you any favors with your waistline. At 160 calories per serving and 42 grams of sugar, make it a weekly indulgence…”

Is Diet Soda Safe for Diabetes? healthline.com
“Managing blood sugar levels is an everyday goal for people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. While eating sugar doesn’t cause either type of diabetes, keeping tabs on carbohydrate and sugar intake is an important part of managing both types of diabetes. Eating healthfully can also reduce your risk for developing type 2 diabetes…

Drinking sugary drinks is also a risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes. If you are working to keep your blood sugar in check or manage your weight, you might choose diet soda. Low in calories and sugar, diet sodas appear to be a good alternative to sugary drinks. Diet coke and A&W’s diet root beer, for example, claim to be entirely sugar-free. Unfortunately, even though they contain no actual sugar, they are loaded with artificial sweeteners and other unhealthy additives. …”

In the experiment, researchers discovered that artificial sweeteners can trigger sweet receptors in the stomach. This leads to an increase in insulin and lowered blood sugar. The stomach was essentially treating the artificial sweetener like real sugar, causing a spike in insulin. Researchers found this concerning but also said the spike in insulin wouldn’t likely cause clinical hypoglycemia, a risk for people on certain diabetes medications….”

The Best Root Beer: Our Taste Test Results
Kitchen Daily 03/30/2012 01:53 pm ET Updated Feb 15, 2013 huffingtonpost.com
“..Before you read the taste test results, let’s find out what exactly makes root beer taste like root beer. Here’s a list of the key flavors:

Anise: Imparts a licorice flavor.
Sarsaparilla: When soda production began in the last 1800s, sarsaparilla claimed to have health-giving properties. The root lends a very bitter flavor.
Birch oil: Made from the sap of birch trees, it gives a flavor similar to teaberry.
Wintergreen: Just what you’re probably thinking of — the minty flavor often found in chewing gum.
Sassafras: Coming from the sassafras tree, this imparts a deep, bitter flavor.
Vanilla extract (Bourbon or Tahitian): This gives root beer its distinctive creaminess.

Top Ten Best Root Beers thetoptens.com
“..IBC is by far my favorite root beer. I started drinking it about 10 years ago. Initially it was raised letters on the bottle that attracted me to give it a try. Now I have my local store order it by the case. I mostly drink diet root beer as I feel regular root beers are too sweet and creamy (go figure). IBC has a great balance of flavors with a strong bite. If I had to break it down I would say anise, molasses and vanilla. Unfortunately they’ve gone from 6 pack to 4 pack. One benefit was going from corn syrup to real sugar, but as for the diet they’ve said at IBC they’ve made no change. I can taste a change, it is a little more mild than the previous version. One question for IBC, if they’ve made no change to the diet version then why are the sodium numbers on the back lower than the 6 pack version of the IBC Diet? It is still my favorite with Boylan diet being second. I know lots of people say Virgil’s is has the best flavor with its dominant nutmeg. Although I do agree it has a …more..”

1919 Classic American Draft Root Beer 1919rootbeer.com

“..The name 1919 Classic American Draft Root Beer signifies the year when hundreds of breweries were faced with the prospect of closing because of Prohibition (1919-1933).

In order to keep their breweries open, several resourceful Brewmasters chose to make near beer, elixirs, and sodas! This practice was continued only until Prohibition was repealed, and breweries went back to making beer.

1919 is brewed in small batches with only the finest ingredients…real granulated sugar ~ the sweetener of choice during the prohibition era ~ and real vanilla. Our unique recipe and these choice ingredients make 1919 the creamiest, full bodied, draft root beer available. In addition, 1919 is alcohol-free and contains no corn syrup, gluten, or caffeine.
..

Question: Does 1919 contain corn syrup? My child is allergic to corn syrup.

1919 Classic American Draft Root Beer contains NO corn syrup.

Approximately 98% of sodas are made with corn syrup, which is much easier to use and less expensive than granulated sugar. Corn syrup was not developed until the 1970’s and true to our name and the era 1919 represents, we continue to use granulated sugar. Sugar is what gives 1919 the depth and consistency that is unique in the industry. It also makes 1919 taste so good!..”
