What's the Beef with "All-Natural?"
November 4, 2023
"Natural" - sounds wholesome, right? Like frolicking cows and rolling green pastures. But in the world of meat labeling, it's as clear as mud…not clear at all! Most of us see "all-natural" and think, "Ah, this cow must've had a good life, munching on grass and hanging out in the sun". Not quite.
"All-natural" is the food industry’s equivalent of "one size fits all" - vague, unhelpful, and more than a little misleading.
The Not-So-Sweet Truth About "All-Natural"
Here's the kicker: "all-natural" meat can come from any old cow, whether it was raised on lush pastures or cooped up in a barn. A cow could spend its life eating GMO feed, never see the light of day, and its meat could still be labeled "all-natural". It's like calling a chocolate chip cookie a vegetable because it has a few oats in it.
"All-Natural": The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing
Buying "all-natural" meat might make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, but it's potentially supporting farming practices that do more harm than good.
And here's the worst part: "all-natural" is eroding consumer trust faster than a cheap umbrella in a rainstorm. It's both accurate and deliberately deceptive. We are committed to being your trusted farmer, so we've taken the initiative to decode the 'natural' label for you with this easy to read chart.
