As shoppers proceed to flock again to full-fat dairy with the lifting of the veil of lowfat propaganda, a multi-million greenback dairy firm is taking full benefit to spice up the underside line by illegally adulterating its pasteurized heavy cream.

The perpetrator is Hiland Dairy, a big midwestern three way partnership between Prairie Farms co-op and Dairy Farmers of America.

With annual income in extra of $500 million, the megacorp nonetheless tries to attraction to shoppers through an astroturfed “farmer owned” advertising and marketing persona.

Illegally Adulterated Cream

In clear violation of FDA rules, Hiland Dairy is adulterating its heavy cream with hydrogenated vegetable oil, aka “transfat“.

So as to add insult to harm, the label doesn’t even checklist which vegetable oil!

Thus, the patron doesn’t know which rancid, artery-clogging GMO lipid is changing a portion of the wholesome fat within the dairy cream.

Is it GMO soy, canola, corn, or cottonseed?

Most likely the entire above relying on the time of 12 months and which one(s) Hiland can get most cheaply for a given manufacturing run.

The plant code identifies Hiland Dairy’s manufacturing unit in Little Rock, Arkansas because the product’s processing and packaging location.

Based on the November 2022 challenge of The Milkweed:

Hydrogenated vegetable oil is NOT an ingredient that conforms with requirements of id established by the federal Meals and Drug administration for heavy whipping cream.

The presence of an unapproved ingredient in a dairy product that’s protected by an FDA customary of id constitutes adulteration.

Additional, underneath FDA guidelines, adulterated prodcuts are additionally thought of mislabeled. (1)

The Milkweed goes additional to establish precisely what FDA regulation is violated through the inclusion of hydrogenated vegetable oil.

The FDA requirements of id for Heavy Whipping Cream are included underneath the Code of Federal Laws, Part 131.150 Heavy Cream.

Half (d) of Part 131.150 reads partly: “Nomenclature. (1) The identify of the meals is “Heavy cream” or alternatively “Heavy whipping cream”. (2, 3)

Hiland Dairy Heavy Whipping Cream Substances

As if hydrogenated vegetable oil isn’t unhealthy sufficient, a number of different unhealthy and probably carcinogenic components seem on the substances checklist:

Grade A Milk and Cream, Mono- and Diglicerides, Polysorbate 80, Carageenan, Dextrose, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil

Apart from the well-established cardiovascular dangers of hydrogenated vegetable oil, the additive Polysorbate 80 is a danger for mind and uterine harm. As well as, carrageenan is a potential carcinogen. (4, 5)

The Milkweed revealed a photograph of the illegally adulterated product within the print publication. See a scanned copy under.

Hiland Dairy Tries to Cowl its Tracks

Predictably, since The Milkweed article was revealed, Hiland Dairy has wiped all traces of the unlawful product from its web site. Is that this an try and cowl its tracks? It might appear so.

Don’t maintain your breath ready for meals inspectors to do their job and implement the FDA guidelines, nevertheless.

Being an knowledgeable and eagle-eyed shopper is at all times your greatest safety!

You should definitely test labels continuously and remember that good-quality and bad-quality merchandise can look comparable.

That is normally by design to idiot shoppers into shopping for a less expensive product that’s extra worthwhile.

For instance, the label of Hiland Dairy’s Recent Cream product which comprises solely milk and cream is almost similar to the adulterated Heavy Whipping Cream.

See an image of the “Recent Whipping Cream” under. Examine this to the above image of the adulterated Heavy Whipping Cream.

Hiland Dairy Fresh Whipping Cream

Hiland Dairy has additionally modified the label of the adulterated heavy whipping cream.

It now has a unique shade label which omits the itemizing of vegetable oil (see under). I screengrabbed the picture from their web site.

Notice that the carcinogenic carrageenan and mind/uterine damaging Polysorbate 80 are nonetheless on the checklist of substances.

The Resolution? Boycott Large Dairy

Are you disgusted as I’m by Large Dairy labeling tips and advertising and marketing deceptions?

Even worse, when these firms are caught they simply rapidly alter the label/substances. This makes it seem to be nothing was ever amiss and people reporting the issues are fabricating the story.

Sadly, reporting violations to the FDA does subsequent to nothing in my expertise during the last 30 years.

Do not forget that the FDA is underneath the Division of Well being and Human Companies which has a horrible observe file (significantly over the previous two years) of telling the reality to the American individuals.

The cat-and-mouse video games that Large Meals has performed for many years with shoppers which can be outright ignored by the FDA, solely finish when shoppers boycott their merchandise….completely.

That is why I solely purchase cream from unbiased small farms which can be actually “farmer owned”…not a semantic facade for a megacorp.

Placing these charlatans out of enterprise is the one factor they perceive.
