What's New At Green Pasture Products?

Change is part of life, even at Green Pasture’s we have implemented some changes during the past year and anticipate some in the future. 2014 will bring a new web site for you to view and read about our products, new sizes of Fermented Cod Liver Oil, and new products: New Blue Ice Infused (Kid Tested), farm, garden, and pet products.

These changes will take place while continuing to maintain the integrity of our manufactured products; the application of historical production practices creates a product that is not commonplace today. This is a tricky line to hold as our laws and society gravitate to a comfort, conformation, restriction, but resist change. The natural world and natural products do change or flow and are not the same as the industrial world model suggests.

Grey hair disappears, just one positive effect from the use of FCLO..share your observations

Received below note from Yvie. Thought I would share with the group. I receive many testimonials but as a manufacturing company we typically can not share. This one is different as it discusses an observation other than a specific disease. I think hair color change is hormonal effect..correct? I do receive other comments that surround hormonal discussion.

 

If you would like to share with the group on the topic of hormonal observations this is the blog... please click comment and post your notes. please do not use the names of diseases.

 

hello, since the end of october 2013 I am usinghttp://www.greenpasture.org/public/Products/CodLiverOil/ every day! The weird and great thing is.... I feel good and happy but also.....and this is really true.....I am silver grey haired since like 10 years... my ginger hair color is returning... more and more every week .... It is now up to the point that others even notice it.... So weird, so good.... you should use that fact on your website!! Greetings Yvie (56) from Holland

 

Note...my observation is everyone is unique and no two observations or reactions are the same. One can not conclude that if one person sees or feels this so will I. Some do better on skate liver oil rather than fclo etc...

Food Chain as Origin of Vitamin D in Fish

Here are a couple studies that show the prominence of vitamin D in the base of our food chain... grass and plankton. The study of the hormone we call vitamin D is in its infancy. The general conclusion of 'vitamin D is good for me' is a good conclusion but to draw deep meaning, or molecule counting like conclusion, is way too early. (Related study; chytochrome 450, health of the thyroid etc..)

I recall many years ago when I was attempting to understand our products a lab ran a Vitamin D test on our High Vitamin Butter Oil. The results came back with the HPLC graph. Circled on the graph with a hand note from the technician was a notation something like ' very unusual, have never seen this in dairy. Have seen a couple times in different fish oils'. The same type reaction from technicians is noted when testing our FCLO for vitamin D. Many unusual peaks within this graph that are not understood. The first study on the pathway of hormone D in fish was just completed a couple years ago. We are many years away from understanding the foods we eat as it relates to hormone D and how the introduction of D in our diet affects our bodies/health.

To follow is a study on grass showing high levels of vitamin D2 and a study on phytoplankton and zooplankton showing high levels of vitamin D2 and D3 metabolites:

Kindell's unexpected surprise

The Covey Family shared below... It brought joy to my heart and our staff. She is describing our new Blue Ice Infused Carob/Banana.  Do you have any experiences you would like to share with the community, post here in the comments.

 

I found this story in my 11 year old daughters English notebook. I thought you would appreciate it.

The New Fish Oil

One cool fall day in my cold dark room at 9:08am I was playing dolls. I heard my Mom yell, “Kindell.” I knew exactly what she wanted and I was terrified. I climbed under my bed covers and only my big bold eyes were showing. I guess she knew what I was doing because in 2 seconds my mom was in my room. She handed me the smelly, jelly, icky, sticky FISH OIL! My Mom said, “It is chocolate and banana flavored. It is new.”

The last flavor was gross. I would cry and carry on every time she made me take it. My mom told me to go downstairs so I wouldn't spill it. When I got downstairs to the freezing kitchen, my sister was sitting next to the island counter pouting.

I poured some chocolate milk to wash down the fish oil. It took me about 5 minutes to gain the courage to take a sip. It was icky, sticky.......it is not that bad. I held my breath and took another sip, then a gulp. I did not even need the chocolate milk. I can take it alone! WOW, the new sticky, gooey fish oil is not bad at all!

Finalized Blue Ice Infused Survey Results

Enjoy browsing the attached survey results.

Thank you all for taking the time to try our new product and share your opinion. It is one thing for myself to describe an experience but another for a broad range discussion through the survey. The Blue Ice Infused is economical, effective and pleasant. Each Family size jar has approx 100 servings equal to 1/2+ teaspoon of the infused oils (Fermented Cod Liver Oil, High Vitamin Butter Oil, and Skate Liver Oil) plus 1 tsp +/- of Organic Virgin Coconut oil.

 

Blue Ice

Coconut oil is one of the best known carrier oils.Coconut Oil bypasses the gut and is absorbed/processed through the liver. Some people who struggle to digest fats will appreciate taking the infused oil pre-blended into a more digestion/absorption freindly form. Plus the blended taste experience will be a benefit for those households that struggle with the straight up oils.

Fermented Cod Liver Oil: A Traditional Food

“Ron Schmid, ND, the author of “The Untold Story of Milk”, has kindly allowed us to post this article on our website. To learn more about Dr. Ron’s work, go to www.drrons.com <http://www.drrons.com/> .

There is a lot of controversy and confusion about cod liver oil. Alison Birks, MS, AHG, CNS is a nutritionist and researcher who has looked into the issue of cod liver oil, fermented and otherwise. She has written an article for us that I have found very helpful in clarifying the confusion. We hope you will find it interesting and useful. - Ron Schmid, ND

Fermentation/Digestion of fats

Thought a few would appreciate a posting on the digestion of fats process. This is described to me as a partial view of how the FCLO works (lipase hydrolysis) and if so might help direct the conversation on why the FCLO works so well in ones gut even with those who have compromised gut issues.  The FCLO is a result of fermentation/digestion and is in a form that most understand to be more body user freindly.  Also might stir the discussion on why one should not add preservatives that prevent breakdown to the foods we consume... for discussion 

 

As cited from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatty_acid_metabolism

Digestion and transport
Fatty acids are usually ingested as triglycerides , which cannot be absorbed by the intestine . They are broken down into free fatty acids and monoglycerides by pancreatic lipase , which forms a 1:1 complex with a protein called colipase , which is necessary for its activity. The activated complex can work only at a water-fat interface. Therefore, it is essential that fatty acids (FA) be emulsified by bile salts for optimal activity of these enzymes.

Another 'first' account of cod liver oil being used for health

All of you history buffs, enjoy below!

 

Below is the 5th or 6th story I have read on the 'first time' someone uses cod liver oil for health. There is a passage in the book of Tobit describing the Arch Angel Rafeal telling Tobias to save the heart, gall and liver of the fish as they make good medicine but it does not reference a species of fish or the oil extract specifically....

From The Perfect Protein by Andy Sharppless and Suzannah Evans

"The scientists didn't take into account one of the oldest uses of seafood-treatment of disease-because knowledge of the techniques had been lost to history for more than a century. In 1770, a woman suffering from severe rheumatism arrived at the Manchester Royal infiirmary in England. At the time, the standard treatment for rheumatism included "rubbing of her joints with cod liver oil," as reported by Maurice Stansby in the seminal text Fish Oil in Nutrition. She was a brave: In the 1700's......the oil was vile tasting liquid. "Although the hospital had no confidence that this would have any effect, she was allowed to (ingest the oil)," ... Her symptoms disappeared............

After that, the Manchester infirmary regulary perscribed 1 to 3 tablespoons pf cod liver oil taken up to 4 times per day to treat rheumatism. A Dr. Percival wrote up a case for the London Medical Journal in 1783. But the difficulty of obtaining the oil, coupled with the truely revolting flavor....., caused the fish oil to fall out of favor, and was forgotten."

Customer Comment on Skin,Sun and Oils

I couldn't find a recent blog thread that my comment would work best for, so ....
I have been taking both the FMCLO and the skate oil butter blends for nearly a year. (Use the CLO in the winter months and skate oil in the spring and summer.)
This year we bought a large above-ground swimming pool and I am loving the exercise and the fun! Of course, this means I am getting a TON more sun than I normally do - especially since my day job is in a big glass building downtown.
My tan this year has been extraordinary, even for me - a person who tans quite easily and rarely burns. I haven't tanned in years, but the pool beckons every afternoon in the Texas heat. I have gotten so many compliments all summer on how pretty my skin is, and how glowing my tan is

This sales is over....

Update++++++++++++++

Last Few Days of sale..... New runs of all flavors will be in soon. As you see from the comments some like the product solid and store in the fridge and others like the product more liquid and will store on the counter. If you like the unflavored FCLO then you probably will like the unflavored New Infused product.. this works great in the baby formula mix.

The New Blue Ice Infused is FCLO, HVBO, and Skate Liver Oil infused into the carrier oil, Organic Coconut oil. (65% min coconut oil). about 100 servings (1.5 tsp) per jar. Each Serving will have 1/2+ tsp of the infused oils

can someone debunk this one.... i assume there is nothing to this test but i have had one practitioner indicate this test might have more too it than total debunk clutter

Alternative Uses of FCLO and its by products, Farm, Home, Garden, lawns. Share your comments. Donna From MA Comments below

Donna from MA shared the comment below. I thought I would start a blog for people to share their experiences using FCLO and by-products in non typical applications including, farm, home, garden etc... even as a lubricant

If you would like to share pictures please contact me as I think I can figure away to post within the blog. In the past some have shared pictures of their garden etc...

Please share with others. Amongst chicken farmers, picking and cannibalism of eggs can be a serious problem, especially during the winter months. The feed grade cod liver oil works like a tranquility tonic. I've seen vitamin A and D supplements on the market for poultry, but they all contain propylene glycol, which I am not willing to give to my flock under any circumstance.

I'll give a call this week with details on how I've used this miracle tonic in case others would like to know.

Problem solving and understanding our products

I'm always enthused when customers are willing to problem solve and share. Our product are not processed and are the real deal so natural variations are the norm. One common example is some lots warm to room temps then cool to temps in the 40's or lower slowly. If cooling is too slow the phytosterols/fats can conglomerate by electric charge attraction and create small little white fat crystals. There is no issue with this other than inconvenient. In liquid products they will sink to the bottom and in gel products they will suspend in the gel.

One can process this out of the product but then one changes the definition of the product that so many people depend. Thank you Sara for problem solving and sharing.

"I am a lover of the Green Pastures beauty balm! My favorite uses include lip balm, face cream, hand cream and for any stubborn itchy patches! I have had great relief from small eczema patches using this balm. I was puzzled when I opened my most recent jar to find that it was a bit grainy. I called Green Pastures and was transferred to the owner with my concern. In laments terms, he explained to me why this happened. Turns out when the balm gets heated during transit, and then slowly cools, these small grainy pieces form. I warmed some water, placed the balm in the bowl with the water and left it there for about ten minutes. After that I put the jar directly into the fridge. I took it out of the fridge the next morning and voila - just like I remembered. Silky and smooth! We're lucky to have small batch, high quality products from Green Pastures. These products vary batch to batch - be patient and there's usually a solution and always an answer!"




Sara O, NTP

Amines...are they scary as some bloggers would have you believe or natural and abundant

Click on this link to view a PDF of a Amine study on many common meats and fermented meats. You will want this reference prior to proceeding...click below

http://www.greenpasture.org/DocumentFiles/10.pdf

Over the past couple months we have had contacts / confusion on amines and anti-oxidants. Amines are common and are not poisonous etc... but you know bloggers, if they proclaim a scary fact as fact then it must be fact. Anti-oxidants I will post in general terms in another postings to follow.

Most in our community fully understand that fermenting foods is not new, and is a proven time stable tradition that has roots that go way back in human history. Fermented milk is yogurt then cheese, Sauer Kraut, kambucha, stink fish :), cured sausage, garum... etc are historical foods traditionally made in a way to naturally process/preserve a food into a stable form for use at a later date without the use of refridgeration.

Why do we not add anti-oxidants/rosemary oil..preservatives

I am asked on a regular basis why we do not add anti-oxidants.... We use to add anti-oxidants many years ago (rosemary oil) until I was challenged by a WAPF chapter leader. I spent several weeks researching the subject and could not justify the addition of anti-oxidants.

Studied stability of the product through peroxide study. The product is stable. Zero Benefit to added anti-oxidants

Studied enzyme cell break down vs temp and chemical breakdown.... the resulting molecular structures are completely different. Healthful vs harmful or toxic. Again, zero Benefit to added anti-oxidants

Studied the general topic of anti-oxidants and concluded something completely different than media medicine description of anti-oxidants....A big negative/harmful to health rather than healthful.

Studied natural anti-oxidants and found the fclo will naturally have protective structures within the product such as vitamin A..etc.....Zero benefit to added anti-oxidants.

Studied rosemary oil and the topic raised enough concern on the topic of fertility and other questions that I could simply not justify the risk for zero or negative benefits.

In general, my conclusion was the only way to justify adding anti-oxidants was to do it because everyone else was adding it and the addition would reduce the number of questions by the general public. My personal view of ADDED antioxidants is they are added to hide a problem in manufacturing. They might be as harmful or distasteful as this community view's preservatives. In a nutshell, I think they are added as a preservative to hide a problem.

I will publish another article on this subject in near future with more info for curious internet researchers. Most of what you will find on the internet will be selling the idea of extracted anti-oxidants are good. There is big business in these isolates and the products that require their use. As a result the anti-info is buried.

There are a couple books by doctors/researchers warning us about anti-oxidants additions but the people blowing this tune have a very small horn to work with.

SB 2072 Amendment Motivation

Regarding the SB 2072 amendment to make hoofed animal share's illegal: Who and/or what organization is behind this effort? The contractual arrangement between producers and consumers has been used satisfactorily for a very long time. Why the need to legislate against it now? Is the dairy industry threatened? Are the agriculture and medical socialists protecting their monopolies against the proven benefits of raw milk? In his testimony for this amendment Wayne Carlson, Department of Agriculture, Livestock Development Division Director, appeared to be a caring individual but his actions in attempting to amend this bill show otherwise.

The Three Kinds of Cod Liver Oil 1849

Previously i skimmed this book and reported small sections on this blog and in the FAQ area of the web site. If you would like to review some of the previous citations within the book please check out the FAQ area of the website where it is currently posted.

I was working tonight and i found another citation to share. The goal Dr. De Jongh's work was to study the 3 different types of Cod Liver Oil; Pale, Light Brown and Brown Cod Liver Oil, and make a detailed report. I don't know how i missed the conclusion to Dr. De Jongs work in the original post.

....The brown Cod Liver Oil has proven itself a most powerful remedy in rheumatism and scrofula. Now, I have found, in my chemical analysis, a quantitative difference between this and the other sorts of Cod Liver Oil. The constituent parts, which exist in great proportions in the brown Cod Liver Oil, must, therefore, be considered as those which fulfill the most important indications. The neutral fat, the iodine,phosphorus, the inorganic salts, exist in the same proportions in the other kinds of oil, which are not supposed to be particularly efficacious in scrofula and rheumatism; it is, therefore, fair to assume tha the brown Cod Liver Oil owes its great power to the biliary matter and butyric acid, which exist in it in much larger proportions than in the lighter-coloured oils.

I like history and think it is special to note that in the mid 1800's the question of what Cod Liver Oil is best is replicated today. The conclusions/studies where completed in the 1800's without full knowledge on why the brown Cod Liver Oil is best and today we re-ask the question. What is cool is the conclusion is just as clear today as it was in the 1800's, the Brown Cod Liver Oil is best.

Maybe we don't have to know why. 100 years from now we will re-ask the same question and not realize the question has been answered many times in history with the same conclusion but using different reasoning. Will we ever learn to the point of not re-asking the same question? My guess is it is our nature to repeat history.

 

Comparison of Green Pasture CLO to virgin, minimally processed CLO from Norway.

Comparison of Green Pasture CLO to virgin, minimally processed CLO from Norway.

Purpose of the study: The study was designed to compare different cod liver oils from two different companies on patients using biofeedback equipment

Study was performed using Spectravision biofeedback equipment on acupuncture points pertaining to toxicity, allergy, circulation, brain, and hormones. It is electronic equipment that can measure responses of the body to different compounds including nutritional support.

Results of the test:

Blue Ice Infused now in stock at Green Pasture!

Sorry for the delay announcing the availability.

We think this new line of products will be the number one way to take fermented cod liver oil. It will aid many that require a non-capsule form but struggle taking the liquid form of our fermented cod liver oil plus the coconut oil will aid the digestibility and absorption of the nutrients found in the Blue Ice and X-factor Gold oils.

Currently we have the cinnamon and unflavored in stock. Both are good!

Blue Ice Infused facts:

+65% min Blue Breeze Organic Coconut Oil.

+Each serving has 1/2 tsp+ of infused oils. 75%+/- Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil..The balance being X-Factor Gold High Vitamin Butter Oil and/or Blue Ice Fermented Skate Liver Oil.

+About 100 each 1.5 teaspoon servings per jar.... economical

Organic Coconut Oil is one of the best known carrier oils. It is readily absorbed without going through full digestion and carries other nutrients consumed with the oil. Many will find this product easier to take than our straight FCLO products because the coconut oil will assist with digestibility and absorption of the infused oils.....and it is 'yummy' Laughing

Beauty Balm and Calm balm feed back

Thought i would share a comment sent to me last wk. Please consider forwarding your stories/comments on the skin products; Beauty Balm and Calm Balm. Use the link in the blog to share comment.

 

 

Dave, I just wanted to let you know how much I love the Beauty Balm. I have been using it since last year's WAPF conference, and have had the greatest experience with smooth skin, decreased wrinkles, and a nice even complexion. My husband teases me from time to time that I smell a little like a clambake (I'm assuming the combo of butter oil and clo) but that fades shortly, and it gives us something to chuckle about. Thank you so much for making such a great product that I can trust to be healthy on my skin!

 

New "Manufactured Date" Indicates Freshness

Below is an article that has been a point of discussion within the industry for the past year+. Thought I would share so all understand why we are changing, as many other supplement and food manufacturing companies have changed, by listing a manufacturing date rather than a exp date.

 

One of these new surprises is the use of Manufacture date verses Expiration date. You will see either an Expiration Date or Manufacture Date on your supplements. Since the FDA published their Final Rule on 21CFR Part 111 in 2007 for current good manufacturing practices (cGMP’s) they have given manufactures the option of using either an Expiration Date or a Manufacture Date on their finished products.

Notes .. Taste, Odor, Texture FCLO Questions

This is a quick note to highlight a few Web site upgrades. There are many new FAQ page updates. If you have not visited the FAQ page in the past few months please consider taking a few minutes to view the next time you visit our site. There are audio's, videos and more in depth discussions on specific topics of interest.

For those who do not know, the FCLO and related products we make 'taste horrible'.... or is it , 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' :).

We do not control what the fish eat. The fish are wild caught. As a result there are wide swings in taste, odor, color, texture.

What was cod liver oil like in the early 1800's? Was it brown? How did it taste?

I picked up a book that was originally published around 1840.  Here are a few quotes

How Much Fermented Cod Liver Oil to Take

To follow is a dialog I had with a customer on the topic of how much Fermented Cod liver  Oil to take.  The customer was attempting to define Fermented Cod Liver Oil and usefulness by choosing a couple molecular structures and defining their need in Iu's.  This discussion is common so I though I would share my 'two cents' on the subject.

Looking for feedback, comments, uses, reactions to the new Skin/Beauty and Muscle/Joint/Vapor balm products

Please add comments to this blog post if you wish to share how you use and other notes on the new Fermented Cod Liver Oil/ High Vitamin Butter Oil Skin/Beauty and Muscle/Joint/Vapor products. You can post comments by clicking the 'add a comment' icon .

Toddler Taking Raw Fermented Cod Liver Oil

From the Coconut Mamma. Video showing her toddler taking our cod liver oil.

Specific Emulsified FCLO customer feed back

Thank you to all that replied with your feed back. Your help is appreciated and will help others in their decision making.

Below are some specific feed back replies on the topic of Emulsified FCLO. I hope it helps you in your decision making process. My conclusion is all are different. Once one finds something they like they stick with it and anything new is sometimes difficult to appreciate/make a switch.

If you are a ‘mint’ person then mint will be the best flavor. If you are a person sensitive to textures then other this or that product will be your favorite. I crave the ginger emulsified FCLO but you will see below some agree but others appreciate alternative products.

Updates on New products and request for feed back

Updates on New products and request for feed back

The New Emulsified FCLO. The New products have been available for about 3 months and so far the limited feed back is good.

The answers to the most common questions are:

  1. The Emulsified has soluble fiber added to aid digestion, holds flavor better, easier feel in the mouth and throat.
  2. The FCLO is the same FCLO as in the other products we offer.
  3. You do have to mix well each time you take.
  4. We do not use the industrial manufacturing methods or typical ingredients when making the emulsified products as a typical emulsified product offered in general commerce. My bull headedness in offering products with ingredient and product integrity makes some products less convenient than typical commercial clo’s including the emulsified FCLO. The emulsified FCLO will separate. A commercial emulsified product will not.

PQQ New Vitamin identified and found in HVBO and FCLO

A quick note on PQQ testing.

PQQ is a Newly identified vitamin.. see below. More info on PQQ can be found on the WWW


PQQ is very high in the HVBO and even higher in the FCLO. Other unidentified peaks or related molecules are positioned just before or just after the HPLC PQQ peak in the HVBO/ Skate Liver oil and the FCLO. All Three Products show different peaks of interest . : Lab technicians doing the test were gushing all over the PQQ analysis including the other peaks on the graph.... below is a quick reference

Radio Host Cary Nosler Interviews Dave Wetzel

The Wide World of Health show host Cary Nosler talks with Dave Wetzel about Green Pastures Butter, Oil and Fermented Cod Liver Oil.

Worth your time.... discussion i knew nothing about ... Government money flows

(The 1999 report) shows the populace of this country had gross income of 8.2 trillion dollars.

The public's income after deducting for taxation: Local Gov (1.6 trillion dollars - "Local Government's CAFR Data") Federal Gov (1.8 trillion dollars)

This left the population with: 4.8 trillion dollars net after taxation.

Local and Federal Government's "GROSS" income brought in 2X the money then the entire population of the USA did net after taxation!

3.4 TAX + 5.1 NONTAX = 8.5 Trillion Dollars

ONLY 1/3rd OF GOVERNMENT'S GROSS INCOME WAS TAX INCOME..

Get it? I hope so!

The private sector (for profit businesses) must maintain profit or they do not survive. The issue is the public sector has acted in accordance with the thought that debt is never ending...Give out large retirement and other compensation to public servants as we can always take more taxes etc...

If you choose to buy a liquid product please do so knowing that there is a discipline that some have to aquire to take the product. FCLO is not 'convenient' for some to take but rather necessary. Batches vary widly in taste, odor, texture etc...

Book discussion on topic of interest....Ocean Eco System, FCLO and HVBO

From time to time i catch wind of new books that discuss FCLO and HVBO. I should post this information... so I'll start today.

Two books released in December include:

New Kid Friendly Emulsified flavors finalized

Thank you to all who participated at the WAPF conference taste testing.

The Flavors are: Mint, Ginger, Licorice

We are going to increase the % in FCLO compared to the original samples. This will decrease the thickness and decrease the stevia/sweetness.

Watch for the new Emulsified products within the next 30 days +/-

New Labels and Website by the end of the year

At GreenPasture Products we are continually improving how we operate, which includes makingour web site and product labeling more useful to you. Based on customerfeedback and new FDA labeling standards, we are making changes to our labels and our web site to work together to provide a complete picture of our product’s nutritional information.

Dave's speaking events 2011. History of CLO and testing

January 2011 Florida and Ohio

Artesian Process to make the FCLO provides a wide range of Nutrients...colors, flavors, odors and textures

Most already understand the true benefit of FCLO and find ways to work with the variability in the products attributes such as color, odor, texture, flavor.

It is understood that nature does change the end product most notably by way of what the fish eats. We Think we finally have the answer to the variability of odor's in the different lots of FCLO. It looks to be the variability in an amine called Tyramine. This amine is most famous for causing the varability in different odors to strong cheeses.

Comment on why different reactions to taking oils

We have posted this previously but it has been some time. People do have a variety of reactions or observations taking oils. Here is one of my Email replies to this question. This person indicated that she feels sluggish or in general does not do as well taking the fclo.

"All are different, many get the opposite reaction. Strength stamina, euphoria etc...are common traits when taking FCLO.

Green Pasture Products In the EU... Passed All EU Testing and Compliance by EU Authorities ... Congratulations Holomed

Holomed in the Netherlands completed work with the EU Authorities including stringent testing and authentication of ALL Blue Ice and X-Factor Products. EU Approval is much more stringent than the rest of the world. There was never any doubt our products would pass as we have completed the same tests here is the US for 10 years without issue but the expense to work with the EU authorities is much more complex and costly than working with the US authorities.

Survey results on Listing Vitamin A and D on FCLO label

We sent out a survey to a random group of customers (doctors and other wholsale accounts). The survey was one question:

Would you have any concerns if Blue Ice CLO vitamin A/D was not on the the label but rather we list a wide range of test data on a regular basis on our depending website?

Discussion:roles of Vitamin A, Hormone D, other hormones, steroids, sterols etc

The question about the roles of Vitamin A, Hormone D, other hormones and quinones comes up from time to time.

FCLO's role is high levels of fat-soluble nutrients including vitamins A, D, E, and K; quinones; enzymes; hormones; and fatty acids. The complex of these nutrients will be totally different in the butter oil versus the FCLO.

The Fatty Acid Complex is completely different as are the species collecting these nutrients. The hormone/steroid structure is directly related to the species and the fatty acid structure of the species’ diet.

Storing Fermented Cod liver oil

This is rehashing old info....

Fermented Cod Liver oil has not traditionally been in refrigerated. Only after the industrialization of the oil did cold storage become the norm.

If you refrigerate the FCLO it may cloud or solidify. This does not hurt the product itself but does change the texture.

I get a common Question, Raw Butter, Ghee, Butter Oil, Coconut Ghee

In My Opinion, I would never discount real raw 100% grass fed butter . Eat as much as you can. There is no need to heat the raw butter to make ghee. I think raw butter is truly one of our whole sacred foods. If you don't mind the flavor, raw cultured butter is even better.

Part 2, Deeper discussion; Why FCLO and High Vitamin Butter Oil

The question about The Roles of Vitamin A, Hormone D, other hormones and quinones comes up from time to time.

FCLO's Role is high Levels of Fat soluble nutrients including A,D,E,K quinones, enzymes ,hormones and fatty acids. The Complex of these Nutrients will be totally different in the butter oil vs the fclo.

The Fatty Acid Complex is completely different as is the species collecting these nutrients. The Hormone/steroid/enzyme structure is directly related to the species and the fatty acid structure (diet).

Part 1: Two most asked questions: Why Fermented Cod Liver oil, Why High Vitamin Butter Oil

Two most asked questions: Why Fermented Cod Liver oil, Why High Vitamin Butter Oil

Fermenting fish/fish livers to make oils is an ancient practice, and the resulting oils were considered a sacred food. Fermented cod liver oil (FCLO) has been an important part of a typical family’s home for several hundred years.

Saturated or Solidified FCLO

This is a repeat posting on this subject but a good reminder. The FCLO is a artisan processed product. The batches vary in texture, color, flavor and odor. Most customers understand this attribute as a 'good thing'.

Have you taken notice to our Certified Humane Label?, GPP does support Certified Humane and our efforts are Certified

Artisan FCLO process .. ramble

I had a discussion with a customer on this topic and i thought i would share a conclusion.

Nutrient test data For GPP products is/has been posted on the site for many months

I have listed nutrient test data on the web site for your viewing and general discussion. Click on products, then right column bottom. I did post comments on PCB's but their is not much to discuss on toxins as they are either not detectable or I would simply put ND or the levels are in the trillions/ to the point of not being part of the discussion such as with PCB's.

New, less expensive shipping costs!

Many of you have already noticed the change, we have switched to fed exp and passed the shipping cost savings to you.

In addition we offer the new smart post shipping option. this is a very cost effective way to ship packages that weight under 9 lb's and to locations such as Hawaii and Alaska.

Smart post is Federal Exp shipping and delivery through USPS. advantage is cost, payoff is fewer tracing features.

Flavor reviews from the WAPF conference

Over 700 taste testers gave their opinions of the FCLO flavors and here are the results.

1. The new gummy fish (available later this month) 85% good to excellent

2. Blue Ice Royal Cinnamon 79% good to excellent

3. Blue Ice Cinnamon FCLO 77% good to excellent

4. Mediterranean FCLO 60 % good to excellent

5. Non-Flavored FCLO 51% good to excellent

Waxes, saturated fat in real Cod Liver Oil

All industrialized cod liver oils are processed to remove saturated fats and waxes. The FCLO we make is artisan processed and we leave the product in its whole form.

Skate liver oil... Skates are members of the same family as Ratfish and Shark

Skates are members of the same family of fish as Ratfish and Sharks. They are bottom feeders and found in all oceans of the world. There is limited fishing of this fish as the market for their meat is limited to just a few cultures.

Skate livers are very large and produce a very deep orange pigmented oil. I knew little of this fish species but was told by an old Russian fisherman that i needed to make this oil. He spoke broken English so the conversation on the subject was short and to the point.

Lactic acid in Fermented CLO

There is a good supply of lactic acid in FCLO. this is why some note a tingle on the throat when taking the FCLO.

About 20% of customers struggle with this. if so then please consider ...

Refrigerate or not to refrigerate, that is the question

Many call on this topic.

Fermented clo products: The oil is very stable. In my opinion many can store OPENED jars either way. If you use the fclo regularly (within a few months) you can opt to leave in a cupboard after opening.

We do not overly process the oils so some lots tend to become thicker as the storage temps get colder. I have seen some really cold refrigerators make a fclo almost Gel.

Converting DV/RDA to IU's

To Convert %DV/RDA to IU's you need to know the standard established buy the FDA.

The common question I receive is the conversation for vitamin A and vitamin D.
100% DV/RDA for vitamin A is 5000 IU's per day
100% DV/RDA for Vitamin D is 400 IU's per day

From this information one can convert any of the products for informational purposes.

Blue Ice Royal....The pinnacle product!

Finally, The product many of you have been waiting a couple years.

Blue Ice Royal is the pinnacle product. It combines a strong blend of 2/3 Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liv er Oil and 1/3 X-Factor Gold High Vitamin Butter Oil. Blue Ice Royal is a substantial improvement over the old therapeutic blended product.

We have it available in Non-Gelatin capsules, Flavor/anti-oxidant free, Chocolate Cream and Cinnamon tingle.
