Shopping for meat at the grocery store can be all sorts of confusing nowadays. Have you seen all the labels? They can be misleading so to help you spend wisely the September issue of ShopSmart mag, shares everything you need to know about shopping for antibiotic-free meat before you hit the store. I summarize their tips below.
- Buying meat without antibiotics can be expensive so shopping around is a must.
- Why make the switch? Antibiotics can lead to the creation of superbugs. Yikes!
- Stores with good selection of antibiotic-free meat include Giant, Hannaford, Publix, Shaws, Stop & Shop, and Trader Joe’s.
- Labels to look for: Organic, No antibiotics used (or similar), American Grassfed, Food Alliance certified Grassfed. These labels are approved by the Department of Agriculture.
- Labels to avoid: Natural, Antibiotic-free, No antibiotic residue, and No antibiotic growth promotants. Meat labeled with these also tend to be pricy, but you’re not getting what you paid for.
- The Department of Agriculture even offers an optional USDA process verified seal. Combined with the labels to look for is a gold standard as companies are taking an extra step to verify their claims.
