Foods that get a lab-produced boost are no longer considered “genetically modified organisms” (or GMOs). They are now considered “bioengineered”. This is actually not “news”. The National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law was passed by Congress in July of 2016. However, the mandatory compliance date for all food manufacturers, large and small, happened on January 1, 2022. Here's what you need to know about the new labeling guidelines that are in effect now.

Multiple people were surprised that I did NOT recommend freezing yogurt and kefir. Their anecdotal stories told a different tale, one where you can freeze yogurt and kefir at home with varying success. There was one BIG outstanding question from these conversations - what about microbiology? Can probiotic cultures survive freezing? I did some research.

I get so inspired by the amazing customers at Miller’s Bio Farm. One of the top customer questions that our team answers is, “How long does it last?” It’s such a hard question to definitively answer.

But then, I had the opportunity to chat with a food scientist about this topic. While they explained things to me, it was as if the sky opened up and clarity rained down. Finally, some light was shed on this enigmatic ingredient! Piggybacking on last week’s blog post about lab-produced ingredients, let’s look a little deeper at what “natural flavors” actually are. Then, you can make an educated choice whether it’s something you choose to include in your diet.

Our food world is overly complicated nowadays. It’s more common for today’s food to be produced in a lab or factory than with a human hand. That’s a crazy change, crazy fast. Evolution undoubtedly takes much longer. Are our bodies able to handle these new artificial ingredients? Is it better to be safe than sorry? Let’s take a dive into understanding what a “lab produced” ingredient is and how that differs from a “factory produced” ingredient. Let’s figure out what you can do to tell the difference and the things you should look out for when shopping for food or finding new food sources that you trust.

If you’ve ever made stock or broth, you know what I mean when I talk about “scum”. It’s harmless. It’s flavorless. It’s perfectly fine to eat and probably shouldn’t be given such a derogatory name. Maybe we should call it bone foam or protein puddles or broth clouds instead. So… why skim the scum?

If you’re reading this, then you likely provide your family with the healthiest, most nutritious foods you can… and that should include the furry members of your family, too! Cats are carnivores, and dogs are omnivores. But, both are mammals. This means that, just like humans, they started their lives drinking raw milk. Ever have your pet (at least try to) lap milk up from your glass? I have! And, it seems that there’s a good reason for that innate desire.

Eggnog is an old fashioned drink, a very old fashioned drink. It was originally used as a health tonic, but was transformed into a fancy holiday drink a few hundred years ago. Buying eggnog from a store can be tricky due to questionable ingredients or processes. Luckily, it's quick and easy to make at home with healthy farm-direct ingredients!

So much care and attention goes into every little detail of our farming practices. Our goal is to provide you with the most natural, most nutritious, and most delicious food. Although we have full control on the farm, once an animal goes to the processor, it’s out of our hands. We don’t want an “ok” or “good” processor. We want an “awesome” processor, one that holds the highest standards, just like we do on the farm. We had given up hope and were working with the best options available. Then… something miraculous happened...

There’s just something about bacon. I mean, I don’t know many people who eat pork and don’t love bacon. It’s meaty and savory. It’s salty and sweet. It packs a ton of umami (a Japanese word that loosely translates to “deliciousness”). But, here’s the problem with bacon - the often awful ingredients! Thankfully, Miller’s has a solution for you, and it’s called Naked Bacon!
