Re: “Dairy Christmas: How the Triangle's favorite eggnog gets made at Maple View Farm

I'm actually surprised that they let you see the garbage that they put into their eggnog.
Maple View Farm is perfect example of "supermarket pastoral" so I'm glad you outed them - no it is not organic and, no, just because you put it in a glass bottle doesn't make it good.
Those thickeners include guar gum and carrageenan, the latter purported to cause intestinal inflammation (see the well-researched: Cornucopia Institute report: Carrageenan: How a “Natural” Food Additive is Making Us Sick.")
As you pointed out, there is nothing natural about natural flavors, either
Folks should be buying local AND organic. Your article is a good reminder that just because it is around the corner doesn't really mean much..
