KSM-66 Secures Medicine Hunter for Ashwagandha Campaign "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Medicine hunter Chris Kilham is the centerpiece of a significant push by the makers of KSM-66 to educate the community on the benefits of the ancient Indian adaptogenic botanical  ashwagandha.

Ashwagandha Advantage ( is a multimedia website created by Informa for Ixoreal Biomed, the marketers of KSM-66, to expand awareness of the benefits of the 4,000 year-old Ayervedic herb.

Kilham, who travels the world researching and promoting plant-based medicines, said he was approached by Kartikeya Baldwa, Ixoreal Biomed director, and invited to be part of their program.

I completely agreed. Clearly Im supporting that brand, but in a much larger context. I have a better forum for increasing the visibility of ashwagandha, Killham told WholeFoods. In my experience with promoting botanicals, a rising tide lifts all boats.

Ashwagandha is one of the most remarkable plants, Kilham adds. Its 4,000 years old and has been used by hundreds of millions of people. Among the things it supports are fatigue and exhaustion. It also has the ability to improve sexual and reproductive health.

What makes ashwaganda different from other adaptogens is that you experience it, Kilham says. When you take it, you feel relieved of stress, have more liberated energy, and enhanced mood. Youre relieved of the blues. People have this experience and they like it.

The plant was in danger of extinction about 20 years ago, says Kilham, who described his experience at an ashwagandha harvest in India as remarkable and said hes pretty much a daily ashwagandha user.

Kilham will be at Supply Side West Booth EE-142 and is working through the end of the year with KSM-66, which is now an ingredient in about 500 products. Ixoreal owns and controls the entire supply chain from farms to production to distribution.

Among the other participants Ixoreal has on tap for SSW is the Indian Minister of Health.

NattoPharma To Launch MenaQ7 Full Spectrum K2 at SupplySide West "IndyWatch Feed Food"

OSLO, Norway and Metuchen, NJ NattoPharma is launching at SupplySide West next week a full-spectrum vitamin K2 it calls the result of a proprietary technological breakthrough providing menaquinones (MK) 6, 7, 8 and 9, a range of isomers vital for cardiovascular health.

NattoPharma has driven the creation of the vitamin K2 market, sponsoring the important research validating the importance of K2 for human health, and the work has shaped the MenaQ7 brand, said Dr. Hogne Vik, NattoPharma chief medical officer, in a statement. The important epidemiological studies that led us to our ground-breaking human clinical research used fermented cheese as the source of vitamin K2, which led us to create MenaQ7 Full Spectrum.

According to researchers, vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that plays an unequivocal role in the activation of Gla-proteins. The Rotterdam and Prospect studies have shown that food-derived vitamin K (such as from cheeses) improves long-term cardiovascular health outcomes because it more specifically delivers the long-chain menaquinones MK-6, 7, 8 and 9, they said.

While fermented cheeses are the best dietary source of menaquinones in the West, most will not be able to consume enough to obtain optimal amounts of vitamin K2, noted Dr. Vik. NattoPharma offers to the market a raw material that delivers the range of nenaquinones found in foods.

MenaQ7 Full Spectrum is naturally fermented using chickpea protein, offering an all-trans vitamin K2 that is free from gluten, soy and all known allergens, and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

NattoPharma is also hosting iHeart at its booth P115. This company has pioneered a simple 30-second test that helps to determine ones Internal Age by measuring aortic stiffness. The system was developed by Dr. Jess Goodman, a general practitioner and medical advisor at three long-term care facilities, who will be on hand to conduct measurements and answer questions.

The Great AIP Pumpkin Round-Up "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Its officially pumpkin season! Even if the weather hasnt quite changed where you live, chances are youre starting to crave all those fabulous fall flavors. While most of us associate fall with the pumpkin spice seasoning ubiquitous in frothy coffee drinks, pumpkin itself is an amazing addition to both sweet and savory dishes. One cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin provides a whopping 245% of our DV for vitamin A (as vitamin A precursors like beta-carotene); 20% of our DV for vitamin C; 15% of our DV for potassium; about 10% for vitamin E, vitamin B2, copper, and manganese; and at least 5 percent for vitamins B1, B3 B5, B6, and B9 (folate),  iron, magnesium, and phosphorus; plus nearly 3 grams of fiber! Not too shabby for only 49 calories and a puny glycemic load of 3!  Not only does pumpkin boast impressive nutrient stats, but it also tastes delicious and is very versatile as this round-up easily demonstrates!

In celebration of the season, Ive rounded up a bunch of my favorite pumpkin recipes from my talented recipe-blogging friends! These include sweets, breakfasts, drinks and even some savory dishes to make the most of the pumpkins coming into season now.

These recipes are bursting with flavor, and as a bonus, theyre all AIP!

3 Unique Tips for Finding Your Way Out of the Wilderness "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Wilderness survival is a vast subject that few people ever truly master. Even certain subsets of this subject can be daunting. Fortunately, there are plenty of online resources and books that can help. Its a super popular subject that has been discussed at length by countless websites and authors, including yours truly.

But throughout my time researching this subject over the years, Ive stumbled on a few survival tips that dont seem to be mentioned very often. Perhaps their usefulness is a little too narrow, or there are better options that are little more versatile and applicable in more situations. However, Ive always felt that there is no survival tip that is too niche, so to speak. I like to learn everything, even if some of that knowledge is only useful in rare circumstances. In that spirit, Ive come up with a three survival tips on the subject of navigating your way out of the wilderness, that I dont think get mentioned often enough.

Pay Attention To The Animals

We all know that certain animals can sense magnetic fields, and use that ability to navigate. What most people dont realize is that observing some of these animals can help you figure out which way is north or south. If youre ever lost in the forests of North America or Europe, pay attention to any deer you might run across. They almost always face magnetic north or south when theyre grazing.

Follow The Water

With advances in modern infrastructure, its a lot easier for a community to spring up where there is no water. However, most towns and cities that are around today were built a long time ago, when they absolutely needed to be near water sources. For that reason, one of the best ways to find civilization is to simply follow any rivers or streams you run across. Obviously, doing this doesnt guarantee that youll find civilization, but if you dont know which direction the nearest community is, then following a river gives you the best odds of getting out of the wilderness. Plus, youll be able to stay hydrated throughout the journey.

Look For Light Pollution

One of the most noticeable side effects of modern civilization is the abundance of light it produces. Even at night, most communities have plenty of streetlights running until dawn. Depending on the size of these communities and how far away they are, you should be able to see the light they produce even if you cant see the town itself. When it gets dark, try to f...

KSM-66 Manufacturer Sues Sensoril Maker for False Claims "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Los Angeles, CA Ixoreal Biomed Inc., the manufacturer of KSM-66 ashwagandha extract, has expanded a suit against Sensoril producer Natreon and its distributor NutraGenesis, claiming false patent marking, defamation, product disparagement and tortious interference.

The new claims this week are on top of an earlier countersuit Ixoreal Biomed filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey alleging false and deceptive advertising and unfair competition, following a lawsuit filed by Natreon against Ixoreal Biomed in 2016. Natreons suit claimed, among other things, that samples of KSM-66 contained milk allergens without stating it on the label, prompting Ixoreal Biomed to countersue.

In Natreons original lawsuit, claiming deceptive advertising and unfair competition, the suit alleged that Ixoreal manufactured an inferior product, but by marketing it as a superior product and selling it for a cheaper price than competitors, unfairly undercut other ashwagandha ingredients such as Sensoril. However, in their counterclaim alleging false and deceptive advertising and unfair competition, Ixoreal challenged Natreons integrity, citing documents from the Government of India showing Sensorils cost basis is about $25/kg but is sold in the U.S. at a 500% markup of about $150/kg.

Natreon and Nutragenesis have been claiming for years that Sensoril comes from a patent-protected process, perhaps to get customers to pay so much, Baldwa said in the prepared statement. However, the firm alleges that this patent is marketed deceptively.

The single claim of this patent recites a process of making an extract composition using an aqueousalcoholic solvent, and also involves treating its extract with chemicals such as chloroform, states the counterclaim. Yet Natreon and NutraGenesis also market Sensoril as being prepared by a totally aqueous, i.e. entirely with water, extraction process. If Sensoril is prepared by a totally aqueous extraction process, then Natreons and NutraGenesiss s...

Scientists Find That Intelligence Is Inherited From Mothers, Not From Fathers "IndyWatch Feed Food"

While this article might raise a few eyebrows among dads, a recent genetic study suggests that we probably inherit intelligence from the female X chromosome.

This chromosome contains thousands of genes, a great deal of which affect perception. Until now, it was generally believed that those parents equally contribute to their child`s intelligence.  Interestingly enough, this research has been proven both accurate and questionable.

Many studies emphasize the fact that genetics is a highly complex and challenging field of research. In spite of the strong division on the subject, it is best to approach the studies from an objective perspective. Therefore, it is useful to present a few facts about how X and Y chromosome function in the first place.

A chromosome is a formation made of nucleic acids and protein. They both store and transfer generic information. Every person has a pair of the chromosome in each cell of the body. Females have two X chromosomes while males have one X and one Y chromosome.

Genetic features of gender-specific genes, like humans posses, are either activated or deactivated depending on the specific selection and, eventually, the characteristics being affected.  The activated ones affect the genetic environment while the deactivated genes won`t. Therefore, if a single feature is activated via the mother, the genes from the father are deactivated.  On the other hand, if a single feature is impacted via the mother, the maternal genes are deactivated.

The structure of these genes creates the foundation of intelligence research.  Women are more likely to affect cognitive abilities, since women have two X chromosomes while men carry only one.  There is more to add up to this theory of intelligence genetics than just the X chromosomes.

At this point gender-specific genes come in. Intelligence is believed to be a highly-gender-specific gene which comes from the mother. Researchers used genetically-modified mice to try out this theory.  They found that the subjects that were administered maternal genetic chromosomes developed an improperly larger brain and skull and much smaller body.

On the other hand, subjects which were administered mainly paternal genetic material developed larger body and smaller brain and skull. Additionally, researchers made other observations, such as identifying 6 areas of the brain that consist either maternal or paternal genes.

The theory that mothers have larger influence on child`s intelligence is not a new one though. Back in 1984, the University of Cambridge examined genomic conditioning and brain development, concluding that maternal genes provide more material to the brain. A Scottish study which followed 12,686 people aged 14 to 22 and monitored their intelligence over the course of many years, has found that...

See It Here. Buy It Here. Keep It Here. "IndyWatch Feed Food"

The call came in from someone with a story idea within minutes after our weekly email newsletter went out carrying a lead item about Day One price cuts at the new Whole Foods + Amazon.

As the first editor this independent health store owner tried to reach, I got the full brunt of his frustration. What is it with the media? Are you advertising for Whole Foods? Why arent you writing about how the independents are going to fight back? Are you just lazy? Did someone declare this a national holiday? Its like were all celebrating!

We have great plans for thriving, the caller Michael Kanter told me. In 1974, Kanter co-founded Cambridge Naturals, which is now a 2,800-square-foot natural upscale health store based in Cambridge, MA. Kanter has six Whole Foods Markets within a 3.5-mile radius.
If we dont come around to the idea of supporting local independent businesses, we will be sunk. If we dont learn to partner with each other, we are likely to be sunk. We are that community and support. Curated products. Local companies. Community, he said.

Whats key, Kanter added, is to connect the impact of local business to the local economy. He gave it a tag line: See it here. Buy it here. Keep it here. We support a lot of local non-profits, he added. Kanter is also a board member of the Independent Natural Food Retailers Association (INFRA).

For his part, Kanter sees plenty of opportunity and plans to ramp up everything. It starts with using his years of expertise to find great products that are not everywhere. His top priorities:
Curate and find products not in the Amazon warehouses.
Sample those products.
Maintain an awesome customer experience.

Serendipitously I found myself in the company of another independent health food store owner at dinner one night over Labor Day weekend at the Omega Institute.

Becky Tarditi, co-founder of Pangaea Naturals in Manahawkin, NJ, told me shes not really concerned about Amazon + Whole Foods. She knew some prices were going to be dropped, but its not why people come to her store. The floor clerk I met at Mother Earths Storehouse in Kingston, NY, knew her probiotics but had no idea Amazon had purchased Whole Foods Market. (If youre ever in that neighborhood, Mother Earths is the place to grab lunch.)

Will Whole Foods soon be old news? Thats what Corinne Shindelar, CEO of INFRA, suggested when I talked to her. Read more about what INFRA plans in response to Amazon on page 12.

As for me, I vow to make the effort to get all sides of the story. Please do call me! Im at 908-769-1160, ext. 216. I want to hear how youre doing and what youre up to.

Can You Find Good Employees? "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Theres an old saying, Youth is wasted on the young. As an independent natural products retailer, you probably wish you could hire someone who possesses the wisdom that comes with age, but with the back muscles of a high school wrestler. Because retail is a physical sport, you must recruit able-bodied individuals with enough energy to work the long hours, both early and late. This means you wont be able to fully staff your store using the oldest and wisest candidates, but must select from the younger, more active set, whose personalities, shall we say, are still forming.

Add to this demographic dilemma the attitude most people have that retail is not a career. A store-clerk gig, in the minds of most, is a waypoint on the path to something more intellectually engaging and financially rewarding. What can you do to overcome these two major obstacles?

Be About Something Larger Than Yourself
In its heyday, Whole Foods Market was one of the coolest places to work. The products were cutting edge, the stores were beautiful, the shoppers were trill (true and real, a millennial update of hip). It was a place to see and be seen. In the 1990s, it was perhaps the best example of the community space described by Ray Oldenburg in his 1989 book The Great Good Place, as the third place, after home and work, where people spontaneously gather and socialize.

As a result, Whole Foods didnt have to work hard to recruit highly motivated employees. Energetic, quality-oriented, smart young people naturally gravitated there to work. This is a phenomenon known as self-selection, where people select themselves into a group of individuals with like characteristics. It really worked for Whole Foods.

The Independent Play
Although you cant be as highly visible or influential as Whole Foods, you can still make an impression in your community and help inspire the desire to work in your store. Ive seen it happen in the best independents around the country. The common thread among them is a single word: integrity. The dictionary defines integrity as adhering to moral and ethical principle; being of sound moral character; honesty.

The most successful independents I know all possess integrity, but more important, they put it to use. Every day, these retailers actively model the behavior they want their employees to mirror.

Empathy; listening intently to and acknowledging customers concerns while putting aside ones own.

Explaining to employees the principles behind the policies; such as, why we stand behind our products with an unconditional satisfaction guarantee.

Engaging the customer with questions to gain a fuller understanding before making recommendations, including not j...


Collagen: What Holds Us Together "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Collagen is derived from the Greek word kolla, meaning glue. It is the glue that literally holds the body together and is vital to maintaining our health (1). Medical News Today reports collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies and provides structure and strength to skin, muscles, bones and connective tissues (2). Collagen levels can deplete with age; this is where specific supplements and powders may be beneficial. Natural anti-aging products commonly use collagen for its myriad of benefits.

Collagen supplements have been a trend in the natural products world for bone and joint health categories as well as nutraceutical skincare applications. In a study, it was found that oral supplementation of collagen peptides had beneficial effects like improvement of elasticity and firmness of skin (3). High-quality protein powders are becoming increasingly popular, says Dr. Jonny Bowden (4). Powders offer a greater dose of collagen peptides and also serve as a high-quality protein source.

Another trend that has emerged is combining collagen powder in with foods and drinks. Through a simple search online, many recipes and ideas can be found on how to include collagen powder in diets. Whats the benefit of this method? Its one less pill to have to take every day, all while getting the same benefits.

Chewable multi-vitamins are becoming increasingly popular among adults. Similarly, as chewable products are becoming more popular, manufacturers of collagen supplements are meeting this demand with collagen chews, seeing the potential of offering tasty flavors that make taking collagen easy and attractive.

There are many different types of collagen, but those most commonly found in the body are types I, II and III. What are the differences between them?

Type I is found throughout the body in skin, tendon, bone, ligaments, teeth and interstitial tissues (5). It is also synthesized in response to injury, and represents over 90% of collagen found in the body (6). Type I is quite unique in its strength in terms of tensile strength with the ability to stretch without breaking; its stronger than steel (5). Type II is a main component of cartilage and the vitreous humor, a substance and tissue in the eyeball. Type III is found in artery walls and other hollow organs as well as skin, muscles and blood vessels (6).

Collagen Loss
Collagen in the skin naturally decreases by 1% each year after the age of 20 (5). The bodys ability to produce collagen also decreases, and around the age of 30, levels can drop 2% each year. During this loss, healthy collagen can also be damaged (1). Over the years this can build up and take a toll on skin, causing wrinkles, thinning and sagging. Brittle nails, hair and poor skin conditions can be a sign of joint issues, whic...


Niacin: The Original Megavitamin Is More Important Than Ever "IndyWatch Feed Food"

We have been discussing the importance of niacin with Dr. Andrew Saul. So far we have discussed niacins role in overcoming schizophrenia, arthritis, high blood cholesterol, as well as learning and behavior disorders. Now lets look at skin cancer and birth defect news and a general overview of Dr. Abram Hoffers research.

Dr. Andrew W. Saul has been an orthomolecular medical writer and lecturer for 41 years. Dr. Saul has taught clinical nutrition at New York Chiropractic College and postgraduate continuing education programs. He was also on the faculty of the State University of New York for nine years. Two of those years were spent teaching for the university in both womens and mens penitentiaries.

Dr. Saul is editor-in-chief of the Orthomolecular Medicine News Service and has published over 200 peer-reviewed articles. His bestselling book Doctor Yourself has been translated into eight languages. He has written a dozen other books, four of them as coauthor with Abram Hoffer, MD, Ph.D. Dr. Sauls educational website is, the largest peer-reviewed, non-commercial natural healing resource on the Internet. He is a board member of the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine and the Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy. Saul was inducted into the Orthomolecular Medicine Hall of Fame in 2013. He is featured in the documentaries FoodMatters and That Vitamin Movie.

New health benefits of niacin continue to be discovered. As we go to press, an Australian dermatologist, Dr. Gary Halliday, and his team have published a review in Photodermatology, Photoimmunology & Photomedicine calling for clinical trials of niacinamide to prevent melanoma (1). Dr. Halliday, professor of dermatology at the University of Sydney, and his team see niacinamide (vitamin B3) as a low-cost way of preventing melanoma skin cancer. They point out that nicotinamide enhances DNA repair and reduces inflammation caused by ultraviolet radiation. The researchers point to the results from the clinical trial, which reduced the incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer in high-risk individuals, and said it would be worthwhile to determine whether it would also be useful for high-risk melanoma patients.

Passwater: Dr. Saul, we have seen reports before this study about niacins protective effect against non-melanoma skin cancer. What is the most likely mechanism involved?

Saul: Niacin (or niacinamide, also called nicotinamide) reduces two key pathways to carcinogenesis: DNA damage and UV-induced

A Stain on Codex "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Editors Note: This article is intended for information purposes only. Because state and municipal laws vary greatly, as do the circumstances of individual cases, readers are advised to contact an attorney for specific legal advice. Scott C. Tips 2017

You will never understand bureaucracies until you understand that for bureaucrats procedure is everything and outcomes are nothing. Thomas Sowell

Natural health was dealt another series of blows during the week of July 16-22, 2017, in Geneva, Switzerland, at the Codex Alimentarius Commission meeting held in that summer-hot city. There, the Commission decided to accept the miserably low daily levels for vitamin D and vitamin E that the Codex Nutrition committee had proposed to its parent body, the Commission. There, the Commission decided that glyphosate and many other pesticides posed no threat to human, animal or insect health. There, the Commission lost its way, clearly caving in to industry interests and abandoning its integrity and the values upon which it was founded.

Remember, the Codex Alimentarius Commission is a worldwide body that since 1963 has been setting food standards for international and, in many cases, domestic trade. Part of Codexs strategic goals is for its food standards to be applied within every member countrys borders. The National Health Federation (NHF), a Codex accredited INGO, actively participates in Codex meetings by its persistently vocal insistence on decisions that will create optimal health and health freedom.

Setting the Tone for the Meeting
The very first day of the Commission meeting most of the important issues were discussed. The NHF supported the European Union when it objected to a Lasalocid sodium Maximum Residue Level (MRL) being set for this antibacterial agent given to animals in their feed. Once an MRL is set, then the substance can be freely sold across international borders; but in this case, as the EU delegate argued, there is no way to set an acute reference dose and therefore we cannot know if the substance is safe for consumers. The EU and NHF were joined in opposition by Norway, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey and Cuba. Despite this significant opposition, the outgoing Chairwoman Awilo Pernet ruled that the MRL was adopted, much to the delight of the animal-drug industry.

Vitamins D and E Massacred
As you will recall, last December, the Codex Nutrition Committee decided that 5-15 micrograms (200-600 IUs) /day of vitamin D and 9 milligrams (13.5 IUs)/day of vitamin E are all that humanity needs. (See my article Codex Lazy Monkeys, at This was a health-destroying decision that completely ignored modern nutritional science.

Understanding Certifications "IndyWatch Feed Food"

T he U.S. Food and Drug Administraton (FDA) and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) dont regulate every food label out there, which is where third parties step in and certify products, with standards that may even exceed government organizations.

Types of Certifications
Organic. This is a certification regulated by USDA and products have to undergo testing to be classified as 100% organic. Accredited USDA certifying agents are sent to the farm or facility manufacturing the product to verify it meet criteria outlined by the Secretary of Agriculture. Agents make sure no synthetic chemicals or pesticides are used in any part of the growing, processing, or packaging process. Soil used to grow crops must be free of fertilizers containing synthetic ingredients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, lime or potash. Natural poisons like arsenic are also prohibited under organic standards. USDA organic also covers what can and cannot be fed to livestock. Growth hormones, antibiotics and other medications are tested for and prohibited. During processing, synthetic ingredients like sulfites, nitrates, nitrites and non-organic ingredients may not be used. For packaging, there can be no fungicides, preservatives or fumigants used nor can there be a history of the packaging coming into contact with non-organic substances that would compromise the organic quality of the product.

Farms and factories are tested on an annual basis to be able to maintain their organic status (3). Organic finished products can be 100% organic, organic with at least 95% organic ingredients, or made with organic ingredients, which is about 70% organic (1).
Farms that are not organic also have the opportunity to transition to organic. That is why QAI, Inc. launched a Certified Transitional seal, so that companies moving toward organics can command a premium and sustain the cost of the transition over the required three years it takes to make the switch. USDA in partnership with the Organic Trade Association will also oversee approved Accredited Organic Certifying Agents with the National Certified Transitional Program.

Non-GMO. GMO stands for genetically modified organism or organisms that have been manipulated or created in a lab environment. Products most at-risk of being genetically modified include corn, soybeans and canola. The most prolific GMO is probably Roundup-ready corn from the agrochemical company Monsanto. GMOs fly in the face of organic because they are genetically engineered to be resistant to the herbicide glyphosate, brand name Roundup, encouraging the use of herbicides and pesticides. There is also much debate on the safety of GMOs in the food supply and critics believe consumption of GMOs will result in long term health problems. There is also the issue of cross contamination of plants that are not GMO and the lack of...

Keeping Your Ear to the Ground "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Raw materials determine the quality of any finished product. This is something responsible manufacturers of dietary supplements, food and cosmetics understand and therefore strive for the highest standards when sourcing their ingredients. Of course, not every manufacturer has the same standards and many conventional mainstream products continue to sell genetically modified, pesticide laden foods, and chemicals to customers. However, it is clear that the consumer is becoming wise to their act and increasingly reading labels, concerned about what they are putting in and on their bodies. This has been a common theme throughout the articles WholeFoods has published, but how does this influence the other end of the supply chain, the raw materials supplier?

Consumer Trends and Industry Response
The most obvious result of consumer demand for higher quality products are perhaps the highly visible seals marketed on product labels such as the U.S. Department of Agricultures (USDA) Certified Organic seal as well as the popular third party certification Non-GMO Project Verified. While the entire supply chain is responsible for determining the status of the final product, it all begins with the raw ingredient, based on the agricultural methods used to grow it as well as the processing of extracts and powders to be used in finished products.

Consumers are looking for more organically-derived materials and moving away from materials with excipients and synthetic preservatives, says Sendhil Pani, president, Bayir Inc, based in Hamilton, NJ. For example, our industry was using rice flour and dicalcium phosphate as fillers for some time. Weve moved away from this towards more natural alternatives because of consumer interest.

As Randy Kreienbrink, VP of marketing, BI Nutraceuticals, based in Rancho Dominguez, CA, explains, consumers want clean label, fewer ingredients, natural flavors and colors as well as local, regional ingredients. Besides that, he explains, things that can really turn off a potential customer are chemical-sounding ingredients, so theyre really looking for simplicity and minimally processed ingredients. Consumers demand from the manufacturer and the manufacturer demands from the supplier, but now, given the amount of discourse about GMOs, organic agriculture and other issues, suppliers are listening more closely to consumers to get ahead of the competition and give people what they want.

Sandra Gillot, CEO of Benexia, based in Santiago, Chile says that vegan and allergen-free are two trends well suited for her companys chia products that support food, cosmetic and dietary supplement applications. In the growing area of vegan and allergen-free dietary supplements, [chia raw materials] combine well with others such as rice powder, coconut powder, cocoa powder, she explains.

6 Steps to Start a Private Label Brand "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Visit any local market and look in each aisle. Its probably safe to say at least one will have and even feature the stores very own natural or organic branded product. Though this may not seem like news, with $118 billion in sales for 2016, according to a recent Nielsen report, starting a private label brand may be a great strategy to raise profit margins and strengthen a stores brand while increasing shoppers loyalty.

Taking the plunge and committing to start a private label can be a daunting and overwhelming venture for anyone who is first starting out. To help, WholeFoods asked private label experts what the most important points were to help dissect the private label process from start to finish.

Step 1: Finding a Product

With many different categories and unique products in the industry, it can be hard to know where to start when determining the type of product to sell. It may be best to choose a product you are passionate about, says Adam Stark, chief miscellaneous officer and second generation co-owner of Debras Natural Gourmet in Concord, MA, who suggests going for the low-hanging fruit. If youre already selling 200 bottles of vitamin D a month, its no big deal to switch over half those sales to a house brand. But if youve never sold supplements before, its going to be a lot harder.

For Ramona Billingslea, marketing manager of Betsys Health Foods in Houston, TX, starting a private label line also meant starting out with the companys main strength supplements. However, Billingslea notes the company was also careful to not choose products that might detract from a category leader with a manufacturer whose numbers we needed to maintain.
A disadvantage to offering private label in a retail store is the risk of not only reducing sales of a top performing brand needed to pull in the stores revenue, but also jeopardizing relationships with popular branded companies that may feel undercut by a private label product that mimics the item that the brand worked hard to create, market and educate the consumer [to recognize], says Amy Lotker, owner/president of Better For You Foods LLC, a private label product manufacturer in Delray Beach, FL.

For retailers looking to simply freshen up their lines or who are interested in something other than supplements, Karl S. Halpert, president and CEO of Private Label Select Ltd. Co., Taos, NM, a manufacturer of organic and natural personal care products states his company regularly receives requests for, and the market continues to see a rising trend in SPF products. Sunscreens that utilize the inorganic UVA/UVB blockers (zinc and titanium dioxide) currently outperform conventional sunscreens at retail levels, says Halpert.

In addition, with regards to food, Lotker has seen a rise in request for USDA Certified Organ...

5 Quick Emergency Foods for All Situations "IndyWatch Feed Food"

ReadyNutrition Readers, we have been covering a host of different disasters and scenarios for preps.  One thing we have not mentioned is the need for food in these situations that meet the challenge of the disaster.  What are we talking about here?  For starters, we need food that we can bust open and eat immediatelythat will give us some kind of energy with nutritional valuebut that we can eat without needing to go off somewhere and sit down.  Even more: food that we can eat without taking a break in stride.

This poses the following conditions for the food: it must be pre-cooked or prepared previously so that no heating or preparation is required.  The biggest problem with this is in the winter months, but well address that issue later.  Lets look at some foods that it would not be an inconvenience to tote around, either on your person or in a small bag or even a briefcase.  Remember, were looking for high protein, medium carbs, and low fat.  Here we go:

5 Quick Emergency Foods

  1. Beef Jerky/Smoked, Cured Jerky and meats: In general, you receive a lot with jerky and beef stickson average a 1-ounce portion or piece/stick is about 10-12 g of protein. Considering that it keeps for a long time and doesnt need to be cooked, with just about a quarter of a pound, you are taking in 40-48 g of protein.  This is very good, especially in a high-stress environment where youre burning up a lot of energy.  Please go back and refer to some of my articles on protein intake and how cannibalism (during the catabolic phase) to break down muscle tissue and use it for energy works.
  2. Nuts: Peanuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, and so forth, usually run about 7-8 grams of protein, about the same in carbohydrates, and double the amount in fat. They have a high-fat content; however, nuts are packed with resveratrol, a chemical that is a vasodilator that improves circulation.  In addition, during a disaster, the extra fat content will not be harmful, as it provides satiety (feeling of fullness), as well as giving you some valuable electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium.  These, too are readily available and easily munched down on the go.  Dry-roasted, shelled pistachios are a good one with high protein and high Omegas, as well as the minerals and electrolytes.
  3. Dried Fruits: will give you some simple sugars and carbohydrates for the body. Long-term benefits will be to provide some fiber.  This is very important in a disaster, as peristaltic activity (the activity of the bowels in diges...


Why Does The Boys and Girls Club Want You And Your Kids To Eat Poorly? "IndyWatch Feed Food"

The short answer of course is money.

The slightly longer answer is society's normalized use of junk food to fund raise.

In the Boys and Girls Club's case, they're apparently quite comfortable taking money from fast food restaurants who, in a brilliant bit of marketing, sell packs of free kids meals in return for a donation (which presumably gets shared with The Boys and Girls Club).

Give $3 to Montana's (a fast casual BBQ restaurant chain in Canada), and you'll get 3 free kids meals.

Give $5 to Swiss Chalet (a fast casual rotisserie chicken restaurant chain in Canada) and you'll get 5 free kids meals.

As far as kids meals go, the Center for Science in the Public Interest once ran a comprehensive study of various kids meals. They determined that of the over 3,500 they analyzed, 97% were either too high in calories, sodium, or sugar (or all of the above).

Of course, the adult meals aren't any better and also provide wallops of calories, sodium, and/or sugar, and no doubt, the business model for the restaurants is that they can give away the kids meals because of course, their parents will be eating too.

Also notable is the irony found in The Boys and Girls Club's Twitter banner where they include "Healthy Snacks and Meals" in their listing of what they do.


This Is Not The Paleo Diet "IndyWatch Feed Food"

With all the talk about reverting back to the dietary roots of our species, some may ask: Isnt this the same as the paleo diet, the popular interpretation of diet prior to agriculture?

The Wheat Belly and Undoctored lifestyle and the popular notion of a Paleolithic diet overlap substantially, but there are differences. So lets discuss the points of difference.

First of all, I am not bashing the ideas promoted by followers of the paleo concepts. The ideas they follow are much better than conventional notions of healthy eating, and wonderful results can indeed be achieved on a paleo diet. Many authors from the paleo community are among my friends.

We both agree on this notion that reverting to the dietary habits and foods that molded us evolutionarily for 2.5 million years is logical, representing a return to habits to which our bodies have adapted. We both reject all grains, the biggest issue of all, given their relatively recent introduction 10,000 years ago. Bad enough if consumed in their natural state, the actions of agribusiness made wheat, corn, and other grains much worse, so there are no points of contention here. We both also reject the use of refined sugar; sweeteners such as agave nectar and high-fructose corn syrup; oils such as corn, soybean, and canola; and highly processed commercial and genetically modified foods. So we agree on over 90 percent of dietary issues.

But there are indeed differences

In the Wheat Belly and Undoctored approach, we limit digestible carbohydrates. In most popular versions of the paleo diet, carbohydrate/sugar sources like honey, maple syrup, and fruit are consumed ad lib.

Why do we limit carbohydrates?

We limit carbs because the majority of people starting out on this lifestyle have type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, or some degree of insulin resistance. We limit carbs because a lifetime of drinking soft drinks and eating breakfast cereals and other sugar/carb sources may have damaged some of the beta cells in your pancreas that produce insulin; any more damage and you may los...

PCC Natural Markets Now PCC Community Markets "IndyWatch Feed Food"

WholeFoods Magazines 2016 Retailer of the Year winner PCC Natural Markets has changed its name to PCC Community Markets. One of Seattles original grocers and the largest community-owned food market, PCC just recently revealed their new name, logo, and brand campaign that they believe better reflects their community-focused mission.

Along with a name change comes a variety of new offerings celebrating local producers, organic foods, and healthy eating which will be available in stores this fall. Some of these enhancements include The PCC Chop Shop, where customers can get fruits and veggies chopped, sliced, or prepared to order, a Local Spirits Shop that features only PNW-produced spirits, expansion of its PCC private-label products such as Grass-fed Yogurt, and fresh and ready-to-cook meal kits.

PCC Community Markets also presents a new website with healthy cooking and eating resources including an enhanced recipe search of nearly 2,500 recipes. The website will guide visitors on how to eat healthfully, shop knowledgeably, stay educated and informed about important food issues and policies, and become a member of the co-op.

As a community-owned co-op, we think about things differently, from our dedication to staff and our deep relationships with local producers, farmers and ranchers; to what makes it onto store shelves; to why we believe cooking food from scratch in each store every day is one of the most important things we do. The why behind every decision we make starts with our community, and we want our name to reflect that commitment, says Cate Hardy, PCC Community Markets CEO, in a press release.

The co-op hosted the PCC Community Fair last Saturday to celebrate the community that inspired the name change. Shoppers were able to experience fresh food samplings and activities like live local entertainment, cooking demos by PCC Cooks, and educational store tours with a trained PCC Nutrition Educators. As a means to inspire recipe sharing and cooking, Little Free Cookbook Libraries were displayed at the Bothell, Greenlake Aurora, and View Ridge PCC stores.

PCC has 58,000 active memberships. It gives back 15 percent of its after-tax net earnings to schools and nonprofits around the Puget sound like PCC Farmland Trust, Washington Tilth Association, and FareStart. The co-op has 10 stores only located in the Puget Area and plans to open a new store in Seattles Madison Valley neighborhood in 2020.
