Bragg Live Foods at the Santa Barbara Fermentation Festival

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 11:54 AM

Bragg Live Foods at The Fermentation Festival in Santa Barbara!

Once again, we at Bragg were super excited to be a part of the 5th Annual Santa Barbara Fermentation Festival this past weekend.  Tons of fabulous local vendors with delectable fermented foods were in attendance, along with food demos on 3 different stages & an abundance of samples. We were thrilled to be the official bag sponsor this year as we caught eye of our signature green Bragg bag floating about draped on the arms of happy attendees while being filled with fermented goodies.

Our very own Dr. John Westerdahl, Bragg Health Scientist along with Bragg Ambassador and local plant-based chef, Melissa Costello of Karma Chow gave a food demonstration at the Culture Corner. Melissa made a fermented beet salad and delicious white bean and rosemary dip while Dr. John fielded questions from the crowd about our healthy Bragg products. See the video below and scroll down for some other fun photos from this fantastic festival and the delicious recipes she made at the festival.

Pour over beets and toss to coat. Let sit for 30 minutes to marinate. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator up to one week.

They are Health Crusaders in their own right, and their mission is to bring quality food to TV & Film sets to keep the crew happy, well-fed and inspired to make some changes in their diet.

Government to Abolish Freedom of Access to Nutritional Supplements: ACT NOW!

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 12:15 PM

This is a serious matter. Do your part to fight for your health freedom! ACT NOW and call your Senator’s office (see link below)

Just when traditional medicine is starting to recognize the positive healthy effects the government just might take them away.
If Arizona Senator John McCain has his way, many of the supplements you rely on for good health will disappear. And the cost of the few you can still get will explode in price.
Earlier this month, Sen. McCain introduced a bill falsely labeled the “Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010” (S. 3002). Sounds good, right? Nothing to worry about McCain says: “Legitimate dietary supplement companies should have nothing to fear from this legislation.  The purpose of the bill is not to create a sweeping regulatory structure, but instead a targeted structure that provides for openness, transparency and safety.”

Well, here’s what McCain didn’t say.
This bill would require every person involved with supplements – all the way down to mom-and-pop health food stores and multi-level-marketing distributors — to register with the FDA.  Next, every “dietary supplement facility” must turn over a complete list of the products and ingredients they sell or handle.
It gets worse. Should this bill become law, the state will determine if an ingredient can be sold. You see, under DSHEA passed in 1994, any ingredient sold before the bill passed could be sold legally forever. Well, no more.
Under this bill, the FDA will assume any ingredient “adulterated” unless “there is a history of use or other evidence of safety.” Manufacturers and distributors must provide the FDA “with information, including any citation to published articles, which is the basis on which the manufacturer or distributor has concluded that a dietary supplement containing such dietary ingredient will reasonably be expected to be safe.”
And guess who is the ultimate judge and jury? The FDA!
Please help us fight for your health freedom and forward this email to your friends and loved ones.
