Gluten is a protein composite found in wheat (including kamut and spelt), barley, rye and triticale. We’re aware of the allergies and food sensitivities related to this protein composite. The Epic Seed is 100% gluten free, so you can feel EPIC after every cup!
According to the USDA, Grass-fed cows have a diet that comes solely from forage containing grass, forbs, browse, or cereal grain crops in the vegetative state. These animals cannot be fed grain or grain byproducts. They also must have ongoing access to pasture during the growing season. We source all of our milk exclusively from family-owned farms in Chenango County, New York where the cows are strictly grass fed and have names, not numbers! Yes, these cows Got Milk but they also got real food, and we’re pretty happy about that.
GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are plants or animals created through genetic engineering in which DNA from different species is joined. The results are unstable combinations of plant, animal, viral and bacterial genes that are not found or produced in nature. While many companies don’t mind serving up genetically modified organisms, we prefer to give you, well, REAL food…
Probiotics are living organisms such as bacteria and yeast that are believed to be beneficial to our health. Bacteria gets a bad rap, but our digestive systems are naturally teeming with more than 500 different types of it! These live and active cultures are vital to helping us digest food and maintain healthy guts. Luckily for us, our greek yogurt is full of this supremely healthy bacteria — and we say YES, not yuck to that!
rbGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone) is a genetically engineered hormone that some U.S. dairy farms inject into their cows to increase milk production. Most of these products are not labeled as containing the hormone. In cows treated with rbGH, significant health problems are known to develop. We’d really rather not re-visit puberty, so we kick these nasty hormones to the curb with entirely rbGH and hormone-free milk!
