2018 Forecast: Hemp Food, CBD Whole Foods Magazine

WholeFoods Magazine 2018 ForecastSean Murphy, Founder, Hemp Business Journal, offered his opinions on where hemp is heading in the coming year.

Hemp Business Journal estimates the hemp industry will grow to $1.8 billion in sales by 2020, led by hemp food, body care and CBD-based products. The data demonstrates that the hemp industry is growing quickly at 22% 5-year CAGR and being led by food and body care products.

This is a big year for hemp-derived CBD, especially in Canada. The country is on its way to legalizing CBD nationwide in 2018. Some expect sales of this product that dont get you high will reach $3 billion in the next five years. Canada has proposed changes to hemp regulations allowing for the extraction of CBD, limiting to 10 ppm the amount of psychoactive THC they can contain.

In the U.S., about 25 Luckys Markets across the country are selling products that contain CBD. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) did, however, recently state that cannabinol (CBN) and cannabidiol (CBD) are found in the cannabis plant that fall within the CSA definition of marijuana. The DEA and hemp industry are set for a showdown in February where oral arguments will be heard in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on whether the DEAs new drug code (7350) is legal.

PlusCBDOil sold $5.6 million in the third quarter. Its in 1,500 stores across the country and is the 5th largest product in the natural products industry. Epidiolex, a CBD-based drug by Greenwich Biosciences, recently filed its NDA and commercialization is expected by the end of 2018. The natural products industry and pharmaceutical are set to clash later this year or in 2019.

About 34 states have legislation that separates hemp from marijuana and 26 are active with pilot programs for industrial hemp. In Kentucky, farmers want to get out of tobacco because they cant stand behind that mechanism. They know how to grow at scale.

Take a minute and ask: Is that really grain-free? Dr. William Davis

Living the Undoctored and Wheat Belly Lifestyles may take a bit of effort, but the results are so worth it. You have to really think before you order your meals. Hidden sources of grains and corn by-products are lurking in some unlikely places. You may have thought that by skipping the bread/sandwich and choosing the soup-n-salad would ensure that your meal was safe. Think again

Often the seemingly innocent chicken breast sitting on top of your salad was dusted with wheat flour before cooking to help it retain moisture and achieve that golden-brown color. Or the seasoning used contained grain by-products. Or the fish was marinated in a solution containing the same. Salad dressings and marinades often contain malt vinegar, soy sauce, and flour. Also, watch out for spice blends such as taco mixes and salad seasonings. Pure spices and herbs are fine, but mixes often contain these by-products. Many commercial cream sauces and soups get their creamy texture from starch, not real cream. And that starch often comes from wheat flour or corn starch. In fact, most commercial soup manufacturers literally use countless tons of wheat every year to produce canned soup.

Wheat and corn by-products are used as stabilizers and thickeners in many products, of course gravies, but even ketchup and mustard. The same goes for pasta sauce, tomato paste, BBQ sauce and prepared marinades. Keep in mind that this applies to any marinated fish or meat that you buy. You may have thought that soy sauce would be safe, but unfortunately most soy sauce is made with fermented wheat.

Dont despair: There are so many ways for you to still enjoy delicious meals both while dining out and preparing meals at home. When eating out, make sure to ask your waiter whats in the seasoning or sauce, or just order your food without it. Obviously, it is much easier to control what goes into your meals when you prepare it yourself. Lets begin with soups, sauces, and gravies.

2018 Forecast: A Grocers Favorite Trends Whole Foods Magazine

Jon Clinthorne, Ph.D., Manager of scientific affairs and nutrition education, Natural Grocers, WholeFoods Magazine 2018 ForecastLakewood, CO, shared his favorites from a list of trends.

The collagen trend is really, really big. People understand that protein is good for them and for so long weve focused on protein for building muscles. Now people understand it can be used for many things.

Take vanity. The aspect of collagen helping skin health, hair, and nails is attractive. Its so multifunctional and it addresses so many concerns. Some use it for detoxification. Someone else looks for digestive health.

The collagen supplement powders seem to be popular. The better it dissolves in liquids, the better we see our customers like them. I like the ones you can stir into a hot beverage and it just dissolves. There are types you can put into smoothies.

I really like the trend of traditional medicine meeting modern science. Dietary supplements have been a little bit criticized by the media but consumers understand these have been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda and Greek medicine. This gives consumers confidence and now you can back that up with science. Were seeing turmeric in everything.

I am particularly fond of the drinking vinegars. People are trying to get away from sweet beverages. There is so much concern about what sugary beverages are doing to our health. People still want something with flavor. They know its not just natural, its something thats good for them. They lend themselves really well to using in cocktails or other beverages. You can make it whatever sort of journey you want. People arent just looking for something sweet, but want something that has a tang to it.

People are shopping the perimeter of the store a lot. Really looking for products that are super-transparent. Labels are really important. Were seeing consumers looking up ingredients on their phone as they go through the aisles.

Third-party verification. Grass-fed. People want to know where their food comes from and many know some food companies are taking the words very literally, i.e. cage-free only means no cages rather than chickens having access to the outdoors. Theres the humane aspect and the sourcing aspect. There is a lot of demand for more local and regional foods.

Supplement Industry Issues Advisory on Opioid Claims Whole Foods Magazine

WASHINGTON, D.C. Leading dietary supplement trade associations have come out with a caution that supplements cannot be considered a treatment for opioid addiction and abuse accompanied by a reminder that federal law does not allow dietary supplements to claim to treat or cure any disease.

The American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA), the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), the Natural Products Association (NPA), and the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA) are therefore endorsing the following unified advisory for manufacturers, marketers and retailers, as well as for consumers, of dietary supplements:

  • Retailers of dietary supplements, including online retail portals, should refuse to stock or sell any dietary supplements that claim to treat or cure opioid use disorder or addiction or claim to reduce the symptoms of opioid withdrawal.
  • Manufacturers, marketers and retailers should refrain from promoting any dietary supplement as a cure or treatment for these conditions.
  • Anyone in need of treatment for opioid abuse or addiction should contact a healthcare professional immediately. The National Institute on Drug Abuse has information on currently available effective medical treatments.

Many dietary supplements have much to offer in terms of enhancing general well-being, providing essential nutrients and promoting good nutrition. Therapies for the treatment of opioid use disorder or addiction should only be recommended by qualified healthcare professionals or public health authorities.

The organizations supporting this advisory represent the majority of dietary supplement ingredient suppliers, manufacturers and product marketers. Each of the associations and its member companies remain committed to providing the American public with high-quality products for supporting personal health and wellness, and empowering self-care choices, when appropriate.

Bacon Jam Baked Brie Closet Cooking

Bacon Jam Baked Brie
During the holidays I like to have a couple of quick and easy recipes on hand for entertaining and this bacon jam baked brie is on the top of my list right now! Bacon jam is a is a magical jam substance made with plenty of bacon, along with hints of maple syrup, coffee and chipotle chili heat that is perfect for eating by the spoonful and slathering on toast or in sandwiches. I usually like to just hoard all of the bacon jam for myself but it also makes for a great gifts and it can also be nice to share some at a gathering, especially when served warm on top of an ocean of melted brie cheese! Baked brie could not be easier, you simply place a full wheel of brie in a baking pan, top it with a topping, like bacon jam, and bake it until the cheese melts! I like to serve this bacon jam baked brie along with a spoon and tasty crackers for scooping up all of that melted cheese and bacon jam!

Win-Win with Organics Whole Foods Magazine

My relationship with food as a health promoting entity began at an early age. When I was less than five, my mother found me at the refrigerator in the middle of the night! I was silently eating a carrot. Wondering what in the world I could be doing, she politely inquiredto which I replied My eyes hurt! With a smile she recalled that she had been insisting that I eat my carrots because They are good for your eyes! It made a lasting impression to say the least.

Although my mother had not yet heard of Adelle Davis, she was wise enough to feature fresh fruits and vegetables at every meal and in the late 60s we began to visit the local farmers market. In this period we were introduced to many new and sometimes exotic vegetables not normally part of the Jolly Green Giant frozen food line. This included kale, brussel sprouts, hubbard squash, artichokes, avocados on the half shell as well as the local apples, pears, peaches and tomatoes that my mother religiously canned each summer. Simultaneously my father became a volunteer at one of the first local food coops. Shortly after, I left for college and became a vegetarian. In the process of trying new recipes, reading natural foods cookbooks and other related literature, I began to explore the important relationship between diet and good health. As a result, for more than forty years, I have favored wholesome, natural and organic foods.

Nationally, the issue of whether or not natural foods were technically considered organic did not seem to come to the forefront until it was clear that scientists were actually conducting a widespread and unwanted experiment in the form of genetically modified foods. With the introduction of GE crops and the subsequent ethical, labeling and health issues, the importance of choosing organic became paramount, since the organic label was the only way to supposedly be certain that there were no GMOs. So in this period, the mid 1990s, the organic food and agriculture industry came out against genetic engineering and what followed was a long battle, still not won, to require clear and accurate labeling as well as a moratorium on GMO production. Little known ingredients, vitamins and more were found to be high risk for GMOs but the majority of the public remained in the dark, as activists scrambled to use the media to educate and inform as well as petitioning to congress to ban GMOs.

On top of the GMO issue, another factor not to be ignored, was the widespread introduction of harmful pesticide use following World War II. Again, in the ideal, organic production prohibits the use of conventional pesticides and herbicides another inspiration to choose 100 percent organic food. As a result, reading labels carefully and asking important questions about the origins of every food and ingredient consumed became more critical than ever.

The All-Natural label could no longer be considered safe or sufficient t...


2018 Forecast: Where Opportunity Knocks Whole Foods Magazine

WholeFoods Magazine 2018 ForecastDiane Ray, VP, strategic innovation, NMI (Natural Marketing Institute), Harleysville, PA, shares her thoughts on where the opportunity lies in the coming year.

Boomers control the bulk of the wealth in the country yet everybodys focused on millennials. Millennials will be the future and if you get them early and keep them brand loyal youve got them in your brand franchise for life. But short term, youve got 74 million boomers who have $3 trillion in spending power. They are spending and they are living longer and should not be overlooked!

Boomers are not only invested in health and wellness but are also growing in their sustainability behaviors. The largest group coming into many sustainable actions such as buying Fair Trade Certified products are what NMI calls the Conventionals. These are boomers who were busy raising families. Maybe they didnt have time to pay attention. Now theyve got a little bit of time on their hands and realize making their families, neighborhoods and the planet sustainable is important.


In the product arena, especially in supplements, I see the next big wave being products with clinical data to support efficacy. Before its often been inference marketing, if a = b and b = c, then a = c. People have bought into inference marketing and dont believe youre intentionally lying to them but in some cases, if it doesnt prove out, the industry takes a credibility hit.

I think the independent retailer has a strong role as the adviser, the third-party intermediary, the knowledge holder. When people go to buy at a big box store, theyre not expecting anyone to be knowledgeable. On the internet, reviews are all suspect. Theres so much conflicting information. You dont really know. Not every independent retailer is knowledgeable, but its a great place to invest in education for your staff in order to help bring new supplement users on board smoothly and instill industry credibility. These knowledge experts, whether its independent retailers or medical professionals, are becoming more and more important.

Nutritional science

Ten years ago, no doctors were even getting nutritional science as a part of their core training. Now its in medical schools, but its still a minute part of overall training. Its still oriented toward the body as a machine. Lets grease the joints. Lets keep these certain functions moving, but whats happening in your gut biome?

How to Host a Vegan Holiday Party Whole Foods Magazine

The holidays are officially here and with that means parties and celebrations galore. While many consumers will host parties for the arrival of 2018, they may find it stressful to adhere to each individuals dietary restrictions. The vegan movement is growing, which means people are becoming more open to the idea of eating plant-based foods. Here are a few tips on how to successfully host an all-vegan holiday or New Years Eve party that tastes good to any palate!

Cook Crowd-Pleasing Foods

Vegans do not live solely off of leaves and twigs but because this is a common stereotype of the vegan diet, many people are hesitant to try plant-based foods. Here are some foods that will satisfy vegans and non-vegans alike. Some examples include:

Watch the Decorations

No party is complete without decorations! Veganism is not just a diet, its a lifestyle. People go vegan because they care about their own bodies, the environment, and the well-being of animals. Party decorations are often made from products that are harmful to the environment, which in turn affects the animals living in it. Ditch the balloons this year and look for eco-friendly party supplies to spice up your house instead. This website offers green party decorations.

Remember that paper plates and cups create a lot of waste. Go for reusable or biodegradable dining ware instead!

Dont Forget the Alcohol

Many types of alcohol are processed using animal products, making it unfriendly to those who follow a plant-based diet. Beer and wine are often processed with egg whites, gelatin, or casein. Furthermore, alcohol hardly ever has the ingredients listed on the labels. Despite this, it is not so difficult to find vegan alcohol for guests to enjoy. The host just has to do a little extra research. Here are some popular vegan brands of alcohol:


  • Budweiser (except for the Clamato variety)
  • Coors and Coors Light
  • Yuengling
  • Miller Lite, High-Life, and Genu...

The Many SHTF Uses for Alcohol Ready Nutrition

ReadyNutrition Readers, this article is not to expound on alcohols qualities as a beverage, but on the different type of alcohol and the uses it has.  This valuable commodity has several uses from a survival perspective that are worth examining.  In this piece, we will be examining the three most common types available to you.  Lets jump right into it and give you something you can use!

Ethanol (C2H5OH) is the common form of alcohol that you consume as a beverage/within a beverage.  There are different percentages of alcohol per different beverages.  Here are some rough guidelines of the percentages:

Vodka (usually 40%), Brandy (usually 40%), Scotch (40-60%), Grain alcohol (85-95%), Gin (37-60%).

Methanol is also known as wood alcohol (CH3OH).  As the name implies, it is taken from wood, and its main use is in industry, and in high-performance engines such as racecars and monster trucks, as well as other specialty engines.  Methanol does not give a flame off when burning and can be put out with water.

Isopropyl alcohol (also called rubbing alcohol) sees a use in several different household needs from cleaning to disinfecting.  Isopropyl (C3H8O) alcohol is widely available in all your grocery and big-box stores and varies in concentration from about 50% all the way up to 99% (usually found in feed stores or hardware stores in that concentration).

Now for winter considerations, here is an important chart for you that lists the freezing points (the point of transition between the liquid becoming a solid and vice-versa) of alcohols:


We must keep in mind that this is primarily used for ethanol, the type that is consumed as a beverage.  Im not listing freezing points of the other two types for a reason:...


Does Your Doctor Know How To Weigh Your Child? I'm Betting Many Don't. Weighty Matters

Image Source
As has been my tradition, in December I repost old favourites from years gone by. This year am looking back to 2014.
On the surface it doesn't sound all that difficult.

Ask child to stand on scale. Weigh. Record weight. Done.

Working with parents of children with obesity, it seems many doctors nowadays feel it's important to add in some judgement or scary statistics such that after 'weigh' and before 'done' comes a speech on the dangers of weight along with the implicit or explicit suggestion that the child is responsible - either for gaining the weight or for not losing it.

I don't think that's fair. Moreover, I don't think it's helpful and I think it may well do harm.

It's not fair, especially with younger children, given that they're not in charge. They don't do the grocery shopping. They don't cook the meals. They don't set the example. They live the lives their parents teach them to live. They're life's passengers, not the drivers.

It's not helpful because speeches or stats without action plans by definition aren't helpful.

It's potentially harmful because the negative emotions bound to be generated by this sort of an interaction may well erode a child's self-esteem, body image, and their relationship with food. It may also lead that child's parents to adopt a knee-jerk pattern of restriction, guilt and shame that is far more likely to make matters worse than better.

The safest way for a physician to weigh a child is to tell the truth as to why weights are important. The truth is that children need to be weighed because medication is dosed dependent on a child's weight and therefore physicians need to have fairly current weights on their growing patients in case they fall ill and require a prescription. And should a physician have a concern about a child's weight I'd encourage them to have a discussion with that child's parents with the child absent and clearly, there's not much point even having the discussion unless that physician has suggestions or resources beyond the tritely useless truism of "eat less, move more"....


The Acid Reflux Honey Cure Natural Remedies

Acid reflux is a health problem that affects as many as 50 percent of Americans. The trademark symptom of acid reflux is heartburn, a burning sensation behind the breastbone that sometimes travels up the throat. Sometimes, this pain can be mistaken for a heart attack. Most people don't know that the lower esophageal sphincter is the tissue to blame for the condition. Most acid reflux is due to a damaged or weak sphincter.

The lower esophageal sphincter (LES) is a muscle flap located right above the stomach. The LES is responsible for keeping foods and acids in your stomach where they belong. Fortunately, there are ways to heal and strengthen the sphincter.

To find out about an all-natural, holistic 5-step system for curing acid reflux and heartburn and achieving freedom from most digestive disorders faster than you ever thought possible, click here!

Honey has been shown to do a lot of things. Studies have found that honey can do everything from improve circulation to cure baldness. Honey also can fight bacterial infections, reduce pain and inflammation, and even regrow tissue. The last is how honey can help cure acid reflux.

Honey can stimulate tissue on the lower esophageal sphincter to regrow. The honey cure for acid reflux consists of eating about three teaspoons of honey daily. Take one teaspoon after breakfast, one in the middle of the day and one right before bed. Also, be sure to use organic raw honey, which you should be able to find in health food stores.

The acid reflux honey cure is an easy and inexpensive way to treat acid reflux or heartburn. You should see some immediate relief, but fully regrowing the tissue will take some time. It shouldn't be too hard to be patient, though, when your treatment consists of eating three teaspoons of honey a day..


UNPA Makes China Alliance Whole Foods Magazine

Beijing, China In an effort to formalize cooperation and collaboration between the natural health products industries in the United States and China, the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA) and the China Nutrition and Health Food Association (CNHFA) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) agreement in a ceremony held at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing.

UNPA and CNHFA signed the MOU to promote and exchange research and technology, as well as to promote cultural exchange and the safe and sustainable development of the natural and health products industry in both countries. The two organizations agreed to mutually communicate about regulations and policies to strengthen Sino-U.S. health products registration, regulation, market access and other aspects of regulatory policy.

We are honored to be working closely with our colleagues at CNHFA to further our mutual interests to responsibly grow the natural health products industries in both countries, said Loren Israelsen, UNPA president. This MOU agreement will stimulate further collaboration and the exchange of ideas, resources, delegation visits and developing business opportunities for both sides.

We believe the MOU will promote cooperation and communication between both associations and industries. We hope through information exchange and projects, it will encourage industry development and regulatory harmonization, said Liu Xuecong, secretary-general of CNHFA.

Liu Xuecong; Bian Zhenjia, CNHFA president and former deputy commissioner of the China State Food and Drug Administration; and Scott Pozil, counselor of the U.S. Embassy in China; attended the signing ceremony, along with members of the China State Food and Drug Administration International Cooperation Department.

UNPA organizes its key objectives and work plans through its MOU partnerships with 13 U.S. and international trade and non-profit organizations, academic institutions and other groups that bring expertise, influence and trusted reputations. By laying out its joint objectives via an MOU, UNPA is able to serve the needs of its members and its industry stakeholders with greatest effect and efficiency.

Industry Applauds FDA Seizure of Products Containing SARMs Whole Foods Magazine

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has put its money where its mouth is and on Dec. 6, took action against Sacramento, CA-based Enhanced Athlete, which is affiliated with Charles Anthony Hughes, aka Dr. Tony Huge. The agency seized raw materials and finished and unfinished products, which contain selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs), reported Natural Business Insider in an exhaustive study of the investigation.

On Oct. 31, Donald Ashley, J.D., director of the Office of Compliance in the FDAs Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, expressed its extreme concern about unscrupulous companies marketing body-building products with potentially dangerous ingredients.

In an unusual action, five trade associations joined with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) to issue a Nov. 8 press release announcing their united support of the FDA actions to protect consumers from body-building programs containing SARMs and illegally marketed as dietary supplements.

Banding together were the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA), the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), the Natural Products Association (NPA), the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA), and USADA.

UNPA continues to support full enforcement by FDA against companies that include SARMs in their products, Loren Israelsen, president of UNPA, told WholeFoods Magazine. SARMs are not approved for human use or consumption in the United States and have been found to be dangerous for consumers, especially since they are often not included on product labels. We acknowledge and agree with FDAs Oct. 31 warning to the public about these ingredients and the fact that they are adulterated products masquerading as dietary supplements. We will continue our work to ensure that the American public has continued access to dietary supplements that are safe, of high quality and based on valid science.

Enhanced Athlete CEO Scott Cavell told Natural Business Insider the FDA and other government organizations executed a search warrant on Dec. 6 at several locations, including a manufacturing facility it controls, seeking to find and confiscate ostarine, 2,4-Dinitrophenol (DNP) and other research chemicals.

FDA seized raw materials and hundreds of thousands of dollars in finished and unfinished products, reported Natural Business Insider.

We believe this to be the first time that the FDAs criminal investigation unit has executed a search warrant related to SARMs, Enhanced Athlete noted in a statement, which was referenced by its followers on the companys website, Natural Business Insider reporte...


FDA Cracks Down on Homeopathy Whole Foods Magazine

The U.S. Food and Drug Admininstration (FDA) has proposed a new risk-based enforcement approach to drugs labeled as homeopathic. Many homeopathic treatments are being marketed as remedies for serious diseases and conditions when there is no actual proof the products provide clinical benefits, FDA says.

Certain homeopathic-labeled products do not meet manufacturing practice standards and may even contain potentially harmful ingredients, the FDA maintains. The FDAs new proposed approach was announced on Dec. 18.

FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D., stated that their approach to regulating homeopathic drugs must evolve to reflect the current complexity of the market, by taking a more risk-based approach to enforcement. We respect that some individuals want to use alternative treatments, but the FDA has a responsibility to protect the public from products that may not deliver any benefit and have the potential to cause harm.

Homeopathy was developed in the late 1700s. It is based on the belief that a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person can be used to treat illness and that the more diluted the substance, the more potent it is. The homeopathic market started off small, and was mainly for specialized products.

Today, the homeopathic industry is worth nearly $3 billion. Although law states that homeopathic drug products must meet the same standards as any other drug product, many prescription and nonprescription products labeled as homeopathic are being manufactured and distributed without FDA approval.

Steven Salzberg, a biomedical engineer at Johns Hopkins University, told The Washington Post that homeopathic packaging often leads consumers to believe the products cure all sorts of conditions pain, colds, asthma, indigestion, arthritis, you name it and yet theres not a whit of evidence. According to Salzberg, the homeopathy field is just silly from a scientific point of view, more like a religious belief than a scientific belief.

The FDAs approach will focus mainly on unapproved drug products that are at the highest risk of harming a patient. The FDA intends to focus its enforcement authorities on the following kinds of products:

  • products with reported safety concerns;
  • products that contain or claim to contain ingredients associated with potentially significant safety concerns;
  • products for routes of administration other than oral and topical;
  • products intended to be used for the prevention or treatment of serious and/or life-threatening diseases and conditions;
  • products for vulnerable populations; and
  • products that do not meet standards of quality, strength or purity as required under the law.

The FDA draft guidance is undergoing a 90-day trial period for public comment.

Janet Woodcock, director of the FDAs Center for Drug Evaluation...
