Has anyone tried this brand? I like the taste of Nutiva (which is more expensive) - does it taste as good?

Im not so sure about this brand. Perhaps the batch I got from Marc's grocery was tainted. Was a good deal $ wise, and I don't think it was rancid... just smelled a little funny. I used half the container but since then Ive purchased a... (more)

I've found that Costco is about as hip as a large mega-chain can get. The Costcos in Arizona were quick to stock coconut oil/almond butter/Kerrygold/grass fed beef/etc. and I often find a good selection of local products, such as a delightful... (more)

The lamb is from New Zealand which means it's grassfed. Super buy! You can also get Kerrygold pastured butter at a fabulous buy. I do not believe the bison is grassfed.

When I was growing up, I think the only way that my parents managed to feed my huge family was to buy SAD food from Costco. When I grew up, I moved to a state without Costco, and never really thought about it. Now my BF and I are moving in... (more)

I am really enjoying these wild alaskan pacific frozen cod filets I got from costco. What is the omega-3 content in these like? Is this a good choice to eat for dinner 3-4 nights per week? Is this a very nutritious fish?

Wild Alaskan Salmon is top notch. In season I BBQ one wild salmon a week and eat it for lunch 2-3 times that week as well. What are in the Wild Salmon Filets from costco?

I was in my local Costco this weekend and discovered a 3 lbs pack of Organic Ranchers ground beef for $13.99 ($4.66/lbs). While it doesn't label the meat as "grass-fed", a visit to their website says that their cows are grass-fed. Although their... (more)

Of those, I've found TJ's to have the cheapest price for Kerrygold (pastured) butter @~$2.69/gold brick (8 oz.). TJ's also has several options for organic produce, which I'm said to say I've not found at Sam's Club. I wish that Sam's would stop... (more)

Check out http://www.dartagnan.com/c5903/Product-Information.html It appears that its referring to the type of meat, but not necessarily how it was raised. In the case of deer, theyre farmed. Most of America's supply currently comes from New... (more)

I can't find any info about that brand anywhere online, including the Costco site. However, the one brand of organic beef they do list online says pasture-raised but also "organic vegetarian feed." In my experience, organic does not mean... (more)

Re. the "organic milk". It's organic, but it is also usually ultra-pasteurized, meaning it was heated to 280 degrees for X seconds. Not necessarily bad (unless you're in the raw milk faction), just means it's more processed.

Costco (USA) sells a rack of Australian lamb chops. They're quite tasty and not too expensive. Anyone know if this source is pastured? Is pastured (weaned I suppose) lamb as omega-3 balanced as grassfed beef? I love the latter, but I'm tiring of... (more)

I am 99% sure they are grass-fed if they from here in Oz. In fact, I am not even sure they'd eat grain. There is nothing like a good lamb chop - if you are cooking them on the BBQ (which is undoubtedly the best way), right at the end of cooking,... (more)
