What’s REALLY In Your Orange Juice? – Audio

Many Americans wake up each day looking forward to an ice-cold glass of orange juice with breakfast each morning. An easy way to get your vitamin C, orange juice has become a staple in U.S. households.

Food Nation Radio Network talked to the author of the book, “Squeezed”, Alissa Hamilton, about the orange juice industry and how they maintain flavor profiles for different brands of juice. It turns out much of the commercial juice produced ends up in silos for months at a time, losing its flavor. Experts akin to those in the fragrance industry are hired to give back the smell and flavor to the stored juice before it is packaged and shipped to a supermarket near you.

You can hear the compelling information about the compounds used to flavor orange juice and some of the brands we talked about in our broadcast interview here:

The Super-Secret BBQ Sauce – Recipe

(Photo/Elizabeth Dougherty)

This is really a dipping sauce. It has no corn syrup in it and not a lot of sugar, so it’s not as thick as your usual sauce, although it will thicken a bit as it cools.  We thought it was good when we developed the recipe, but when my son started asking for it, I knew it was a keeper. Here’s the Food Nation Radio Network recipe:

Ingredients (organic, if possible)

3 cups apple juice

1 TB lemon juice

½ cup ketchup with NO corn syrup in it

1/8 cup Dijon

¼ cup brown sugar

1/8 tsp clove, cinnamon, ginger, red pepper

½ tsp cumin

¼ tsp white pepper

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp sweet paprika

½ tsp chili powder

Method

Combine the above ingredients and reduce by half. That’s it! Enjoy!

Audio – Food Democracy Now’s Update On GMO Labeling, Wheat And More

This week on Food Nation Radio Network, we spoke with Dave Murphy from Food Democracy Now about state GMO labeling efforts, America’s wheat farmers and the King Amendment to the Farm Bill.

Here’s what he had to say: 

About Dave Murphy: Dave Murphy is the founder and executive director of Food Democracy Now!, a grassroots movement of more than 650,000 American farmers and citizens dedicated to reforming policies relating to food, agriculture and the environment. Murphy has been called “the most crucial and politically savvy actor in the on-going efforts to help move American agriculture into the 21st century” as a result of his “Sustainable Dozen” campaign, which resulted in four candidates being placed in high level positions at the USDA and his efforts to reform food and agriculture under the Obama administration.
