NT May Thread - Page 3

post #41 of 815
Some more info here However for me the question is not so much whether Carlson's uses or doesn't use synthetics but rather is there an unbiased view of safe and effective levels of Vitamin A? I don't think enough comprehensive research has been done. Something is always being left out of the equation. We all know WAPF views but what things were being taken in along with the A that weren't studied? There's a long and dense article on the greenpasture site about the A issue. It's in pdf form, a dozen or so pages.

I thought that the WAPF site pulled it because it was lowering the vitamin content, not because they are synthetic. Nordic Naturals isn't on there either and I expect for that reason.

I tried the liver...it was gross....I don't think I will be able to eat it...

Jessica I have one more package in my freezer...do you want it? Are you close to me?

Gale Force...why do you suspect that NN isn't on there? synthetic or content?

Ok, so I just ordered some chicken feet to add to my stock this week. I haven't really had too much success with getting the stock to gel with just a carcass, so I thought this might help. Has anyone used the feet in their stock before? I am a little nervous about it, I don't have to break them up or anything right?

Me ?
Thanks so much for the offer, but I am just venturing into meat eating now, starting with fish. I also just ate some Turkey lunch meat from New Seasons that is free of everything, they just slice it off the whole turkey. Anyhow, liver is far far far far into the future (if ever )
I think you are amazing for trying it

Content for sure. There are no synthetic ingredients in NN.

I use feet in my stock. About 1/2 way through, you can go in and 'mush' the feet a little to loosen them. If that makes any sense. The first time I used the feet I was fairly wigged out about them. The nails and all. :eewww.

Well, maybe that's true...what they sent me was just a stock letter. I just get really nervous when I don't get clear answers...but as I said I always liked the product. I wish someone could have just said, "No it isn't the case. We are not and have never used synthetic vitamins." Geez, is that so hard?

Carnelian-that is a very scary statement. But it does tell us why it wouldn't necessarily state that synthetics were added.

I forgot about the nails!

Jess the turkey lunch meat is good. We buy that kind too...I think. It is the Diestel smoked turkey meat or the regular turkey meat.

dh likes the liver...said it needs onions and mushrooms though with a beef stock gravy...He can have it..lol

Could be that WAPF couldn't get any clear answers from Carlson's as well?

We're doing Garden of Life CLO, but will switch to a higher vitamin brand next.

Happy May everyone! Are you all starting to feel more alive now that we've gotten through the winter? I know I am..

I'm suspecting this is the case - can't say I blame them. I too start to get nervous when folks do semantic acrobatics to avoid answering the question I'm asking them :

There could be a political reason for that- it may have nothing whatsoever to do with the quality of the product itself.

jumping in here real quick!

It is very frustrating to read all this different CLO info. Right now we are taking GoL, but a mega dose, will be ordering the Blue Ice next time, although we are hoping to get preggo and I don't want to have to take an extra supplement for dha etc. ugh....

Does anyone know how much fish you would have to eat to get enough through your diet?

Hey can anyone help me with raw milk yogurt?

I have tried to make it 4 times and failed. Although when I had made it with pasteurized milk I never had a batch not turn out.

The instructions I had for raw milk was just to heat it to 110 and add the starter, then I put it in the yogurt maker. Right now I have a quart in the frig the top layer which is about 2/3 the jar looks like curdled milk, then there is the whey, then the yogurt. I am getting very frustrated. Oh, I let it ferment for 24 hrs and use Dannon plain for starter. Like I said I did this at least a dozen times with past. milk and no issue, same method, but I heated it to 185 then cooled to 110.

I started sprouting some black beans before I started SCD - I think they've been soaking for at least 4 days. Any advice on how long it takes for them to sprout? I'm going to make them into a bean soup and freeze it for later
I'm worried I'm not doing it right.....NT says it can take up to 4 days, but I'm not seeing even the tiniest indication that they're growing anything :
post #59 of 815
Subbing, too. ( I can't believe that I missed ONE day and we are on page 3!!)

I am having the same problem with raw milk yogurt! It is turning out like cottage cheese! I heated to 115, added plain yogurt and put in my machine.

I've always heard to soak them overnight, then rinse them twice a day and keep them moist while sprouting. I'm not sure they can sprout without oxygen.
