NEWS: Fancy Food Show Favorite Find ~ Meyenberg Fresh Goat Milk
|We just flew in this morning from the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Diego. Departing at 10 p.m. Pacific Time on the “Red Eye,” we ended up at Newark Airport at 6 a.m., in time to find our luggage and fight rush hour traffic into New York City, where we arrived at our desk at 8 a.m. Eastern Time. As always, there was lots of good food to be had at the Fancy Food Show, much fodder for upcoming reviews in THE NIBBLE online magazine. But here’s one of our favorites that we don’t think will end up as a review: Meyenberg Goat Milk. If you love fresh goat cheese, you’ll want to track down a carton, which is available in whole and low fat milk. (For years, it’s been available in canned and powdered form for people who are allergic to cow’s milk—but go for the fresh).||
The Meyenberg goat’s milk line includes fresh quarts (at left), canned and powdered milk, plus our passion, the goat’s milk butter (silver square). The company also makes cheese.
|This is a gourmet beverage: Fresh goat’s milk has a creamy, gourmet taste for drinking and cooking. If you smile with pleasure when you eat a delicious piece of fresh goat cheese, you’ll be maaad about the fresh milk. We loved it straight; now we can’t wait to buy several quarts to use it in everything requiring milk. Meyenberg’s exquisite goat’s milk butter was a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week and likewise, should not be missed—it turns triers into converts. Meyenberg products are completely natural—no preservatives, no antibiotics, no bovine growth hormones (rBGH). Goat’s milk is an excellent alternative for people who cannot digest cow’s milk and/or soy products. Goat’s milk also is higher in calcium, potassium and vitamins A and B than cow’s milk (the calories are similar.) The products are also certified kosher. You can find them at leading health food and grocery stores nationwide, and there is a list of retailers on the Meyenberg.com.
