Here at US Wellness we routinely receive phone calls from customers on a gluten-free
diet, or from concerned parents of Autistic children looking for gluten-free products. What exactly is
a gluten-free diet? This
slideshow from WebMD gives lots of good
information. Basically it is a diet free of grains, focusing on whole, unprocessed foods. US
Wellness is happy to offer an endless selection of gluten free
to customers with celiac disease, IBS, autism, or gluten allergies.
Where's the beef? This week fast food
giant Taco Bell was hit with a lawsuit claiming their meat filling was below USDA standards.
Apparently, meat filling must be at least 40% meat - only 40%! What makes up the other 60% of the
"meat"? Usually extenders, such as wheat, starches and oat flour; and binders such as soy
Today Show video gives a more in-depth look
at what you are actually getting in your fast food burritos. Don't risk your health with mystery meat -
ground beef is 100% grass-fed, antibiotic and hormone-free, with
no added fillers or binders.
Butter is back! Due to a nationwide shortage of grass-fed cream necessary to make
grass-fed butter, we ran short on our famous grass-fed butter this month. While this is frustrating, it
is also a good problem because it means more people are realizing the amazing benefits of grass-fed dairy!
We have both
Unsalted varieties of Kerrygold Butter in stock now. It is
100% grass-fed made from summer milk when cattle are enjoying lush grasses, and packaged in a convenient 8 oz
butter has a creamy texture and a rich butter flavor you will love as much as we do! Our friends at

Question and Answer Column
Dear Dr. Serrano,
George's question was posted in the January 9th Wellness
newsletter and he asked if
organic pasturized butter was as
healthy as organic raw butter. You said that raw butter was better but you didn't really address whether or
organic pasturized butter was at
least the next best thing since raw butter is not very available and is quite expensive.
pasturized organic butter still
retain most of the health benefits of organic raw butter?
Sorry about my mistake, usually John keeps me in line.
Pasteurized butter is the best
thing because it still provides vitamins and minerals and actually some of the fat in butter is heat stable,
and the vitamins are protected by the fats.
The only problem is that with heat is that something always changes and
I am not aware of any body that has the chemical comparison between raw and pasteurized butter. If one
of our readers has that information I would love to have it. When you pasteurize milk it is different
because now you are heating proteins which are very sensible to heat.

I have to take a moment to tell you how much we enjoy your company. I
have had health issues in the past and have switched my diet to all organic food and
grass fed beef
. Yours is by far the BEST. I always keep my freezer stocked.
You make it easy for us as consumers and I want you to know how much I appreciate all the hard work you do
to run such a fabulous company with such high standards. Your efforts do not go unnoticed! I feel better than
I have in years!!!!
I'll be waiting for the butter with great anticipation. It will make me
appreciate it even more.
Thanks for everything you do!
