Is Natural Better?
There are many regulations set forth by the USDA in order to police the use of the word “Natural”. Otherwise, everyone would tout that their products are natural. Who doesn’t want something natural, right? Unfortunately, with the current regulations, it is possible to label almost anything “Natural”.
Here at Pederson’s, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with all natural foods. However, there are some facts about “Natural” everyone should understand, especially with the growth of the natural food industry becoming significant enough that all of the big players want a piece of the action.
“Natural” versus “Pederson’s Natural”
Customers need to feel confident they are feeding their families the best foods possible, and the word “Natural” has become a quick and easy indicator of what’s healthy for many.
“Natural” brings a certain favorable thought to the minds of consumers which in turn adds value to a product. The USDA’s definition of natural is a food product that does not contain artificial ingredients or coloring and it’s only minimally processed. However, this does not include hormones, antibiotics and other chemicals. See how tricky the word “natural” can be?
“Pederson’s Natural” means produced in a small Texas town by real people who are making the product. People who care about providing you and your family real food. We make a small number of products, but we make them very well and very safe. “Pederson’s Natural” is a product made from raw meat using Pederson’t Natural spices and is qualified as Never Ever (no antibiotics or growth stimulants ever).
Take for example our No Sugar Added Spicy Breakfast Sausage, a crowd please whether you’re serving it for breakfast or on a taco. We don’t use any antibiotics or growth stimulants to make this sausage. There are no artificial ingredients or preservatives, and we don’t over process it either. It’s something you love to eat, but now you can have a healthier, more natural version served up.
