Pasture-raised meats are not only better for the animals and the earth - but better for those that consume them! Pastured pork contains 300% more Vitamin E and more Vitamin D thanks to being raised in the sunshine.
“Because pigs are monogastric animals (single stomach), they have the ability to convert vegetable and plant 18 carbon fatty acids (ALA) to the 20 and 22 carbon fatty acids (EPA and DHA) which reduce inflammation, reduce cardiovascular disease and promote good health for us all when we eat pork. Free ranging pork contains higher concentrations of these beneficial fatty acids than are found in their feed lot produced counterparts." - Dr. Loren Cordain
That's why we only use pastured meats in our meat baby food pouches. Because we want the best for your (and our!) baby, and for animals and the planet.
As co-owner of a Paleo, meat-based baby food company, people ask me all the time when they can start feeding their baby meat. The question makes sense. It would take days to eat a steak if you didn’t have teeth. I often get puzzled looks when I say meat is an ideal first food.
