    C'mon guys, have you never been to a dairy farm in this country. Except in drought, our dairy cattle are all grass-fed. Why do you think our butter is yellow when seppo butter is white?

    Funnily enough, there doesn't seem to be any ghee made locally. I buy a Fijian ghee from local Indian store. Bright yellow. With their lush climate the Fijians have no call to grain feed
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

      I've seen thse and wanted to try, but anything less than 85% really stuffs up my insulin and I get that nasty crash afterwards, so I've ben too scared to try! he mint one sounds delish!

        aldi has a great 85% dark chocolate for cheap.

        I just can't trust the general 'all dairy cows are grass fed' when there's plenty of white butters available and my indian ghee tastes so much different than the allowrie.

          Jalna make the A2 yoghurt but it is low fat. If you really want A2 yoghurt I would make your own straight from the milk. The A2 cows aren't certified organic though.

            This is my thinking on dairy too. You can always make your own ghee.

              I tried the Aldi-brand but didn't love it. My fav is Green & Blacks, adore Loving Earth Raw Organics too, but theirs is only 72% and sweetened with coconut sugar. So yummy but I totally crash afterwards so I gave up on it.

                  Yes I have tried plenty of their stuff. But watch out, they use agave syrup a lot! The kale chips is awesome. The coconut butter tastes terrible. It has the worst aftertaste.

                        Went shopping at Woolies today, for the first time they actually had Ghee, it tasted awesome!

                            I echo your sentiments (mostly- But their kale chips make me want to puke). I really resent that they are advertising agave syrup as raw. It's not even close. Nevertheless, their cacao beans are lovely (I nibble on them to stay awak on long drives), I regularly use their raw cacao powder and I grate their raw cacao butter into coconut milk hot chocolates for extra yummy, full-bodied, woody chocolatiness.

                            • Response from Ayam (the company with the coconut milk without guar gum n all that stuff) customer care to an email my sister sen recently about BPA in cans:

                              "Thanks for your interest in our products. We understand that many consumers these days are very conscious of what additives and chemicals are in the food they eat. We have undertaken many steps to remove additives such as preservatives, artificial colourings and flavourings wherever possible in our food, and have switched many of our products over to gluten free recipes. We also have organic varieties of our Coconut Milk and Cream available.

                              *

                              I can confirm that the AYAM™*Coconut Milk and AYAM™ Coconut Cream are both 100% natural and do not contain any additives, chemicals, whiteners, or thickeners. The cream is made from 100% coconut kernel extract, and the milk is made from 82% coconut kernel extract, with added water to give it a thinner ‘milk’ consistency. A lot of manufacturers add thickeners and whiteners to their products – but our Coconut Milk and Cream are the only 100% natural coconut milk and cream available on the market.

                              Bisphenol A (BPA)* is an organic compound used to make polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins, along with other applications. Polycarbonate plastic, which is clear and nearly shatter-proof, is used to make a variety of common products including water bottles, sports equipment, medical and dental devices, dental fillings and sealants, eyeglass lenses, CDs and DVDs, and household electronics.

                              *

                              Epoxy resins are used in the internal coating of food and beverage metal cans used to protect the food from direct contact with metal. The position of health authorities of all countries that have a regulation on BPA, is that epoxy coating for canned food containing BPA is safe for consumers and the environment when used as intended, and in an amount that does not exceed the prescribed safe level.

                              *

                              At present, the Coconut cans we use do contain trace elements of Bisphenol A. We comply with all standards set by the USFDA and also European Council directives for levels of acceptable BPA.

                              *

                              Considering the review under way on the use of BPA, producers of resins and lacquers for the food industry are developing alternative coatings for cans that are BPA free. *AYAM™ follows these developments closely, and has begin to switch to BPA-free lacquers, as they are becoming available. We have already begun the switchover to BPA-free cans for AYAM™ canned tuna and AYAM™ club sardines, as these are our biggest sellers globally. All the other ranges, including coconut, will follow, and AYAM™ targets to have completed the switch to BPA-free cans within a short period of 2 years from when the BPA-free lacquer becomes available.

                              *

                              For more information on Bisphenol A, please visit Food Standards Australia New Zealand

                              *

                              Thank you for your enquiry and we trust you will continue to enjoy using AYAM™ products.

                              • Does anyone know what's in the marinade of those chicken kebabs you get from the supermarket? I went to a friends for dinner last night and she tried to provide a meal without wheat. But this morning my chest it so tight and the baby has small patches of eczema coming up. I pretty much knew they'd be full of sugar but now I'm wondering what else was in there?
