Melanie Warner's Food/Muckraking Blog

Mark Bittman pointed to her blog today, glad he did. Some nuggets:

About Sara Lee Earthgrain's bread. funny stuff:
  1. Unlike organic wheat, Eco-Grain isn’t produced without chemical fertilizers, just 15 fewer of them.
  2. There’s no reduction at all in the use of environmentally unfriendly pesticides like the delicious-sounding 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid.
  3. Sara Lee is only using 20 percent Eco-Grain flour in its bread.
About Jamie O's show about school lunches in America.
About the death of the American wild shrimp industry. I'd noticed you can't get wild US shrimp in the stores anymore, 'tis sad.
About the tea party and farm subsidies. Classic.
Fear of a Vegetarian Planet. With a Bill Clinton bit. Great.
Faux-organic eggs. Interesting.
About factory-farmed meat 1,2,3,4.
