So naturally whenever I reach out for dairy at the grocery store, I try to go for Organic. The other day I found some coupons for Organic Valley stuff that were about to expire next week so I decided to stock up. Hereís what I bought:
Organic Valley Heavy Whipping Cream
Organic Valley Mozzarella cheese
Organic Valley Cream Cheese
Organic Valley Sour Cream
Since I was kind of in a hurry, I just dumped everything into my cart. When I got home and started reading the back ingredient label, Iíve gotten very depressed. Heavy Whipping cream is ultra-pasteurized and has some soy lectins added to it. Mozarella cheese is made from skim milk and some soy proteins (even though it says full-fat). Cream cheese had some wheat, soy, skim milk, etc. Sour Cream had a load of bad stuff in it, even though it said full-fat on the package.
Now, I had some leftover regular cream cheese, regular sour cream, and regular whipped cream in the fridge (just some off-brands), and none of them had skim milk or soy lectins or wheat crap in it. Whatís going on? Why is the brand markets itself as health-forward but completely screws up their products by making it from organic by-products.
