With more zealous U.S. Food and Drug Administration restricting imports of French cheeses made with raw milk in a centuries-old craft covered here last month, studies show that full fat dairy and raw milk products are healthier to consume. The American public is becoming more aware of the programming from government and industry on the harm of fat-free or low fat consumption, as an example with butter now preferred over margarine.
Fortunately, there is a demand in Yelm for artisan raw milk products and the Yelm Food Co-op carries a full range for knowledgeable consumers.
– “Full Fat Dairy May Reduce Your Risk of Diabetes and Other Health Problems”
“Most mainstream dietary advice recommends low-fat or non-fat dairy. But a growing number of experts argue that its far healthier to eat and drink whole dairy products, with all the fat left in.”
“More recently, research presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) in Vienna, Austria, found that eating full-fat dairy products such as whole milk, cream, cheese, and butter, reduces your risk of developing diabetes.”
“Just like raw organic butter, raw milk from grass-fed cows has a number of health benefits you simply will not obtain from drinking pasteurized and homogenized CAFO milk,” quoting Dr. Mercola.
– “Unlocking France’s Secrets to Raw Cheese”
“Raw cheese made from the milk of pastured animals is an exceptional nutrient-dense food, and far superior to processed, pasteurized cheeses in terms of nutrition and taste.
In countries like France, the traditional cheese-making process has been crafted over centuries in many cases, and is truly an art form, with each cheese carefully aged and ripened to develop a complex taste and texture that mass-produced cheeses cannot replicate.
This is in large part due to their raw milk content and, in turn, their populations of beneficial bacteria,” quoting Dr. Mercola.
