Eden Foods Declared a Hero in Extensively Researched Soy Report

Eden Foods Declared a Hero in Extensively Researched Soy Report












Clinton, Michigan (Vocus) June 12, 2009

Eden Foods achieved the highest score, 955 out of 1000, in the highest category of the Organic Soy Scorecard, a comprehensive evaluation carried out in a year and half’s research into the Social, Environmental, and Health Impacts of soy foods in North America. The Cornucopia Institute, an objective independent research and advocacy organization dedicated to preserving organic integrity and creating economic justice for family farmers, released the report May 18th. Eden Foods has never contributed a dime to them.

The Organic Soy Scorecard thoroughly evaluated 62 organic brands, only 7 were in the highest category. Of these Eden Foods was ranked the highest and was the only highest category brand available nationally. The leading national soy food brand scored zero. All brands were rated on ten criteria including sourcing, stringency of organic certifier, and prevention of GMO and chemical contamination. The “uncensored story” reports the brands most committed to organic integrity are independent companies who source exclusively and directly from North American family farms. Most large publicly traded corporations source soybeans from China and add soy protein isolate extracted with hexane, a neurotoxic petrochemical.

Every Eden soybean is grown by North American farmers who have multi-decade relationships with Eden. The farmers receive their money directly from Eden and are visited regularly. Great care is taken to avoid GMO contamination. Eden performs in-house testing on every load coming in, one of the very few companies, at great expense, to make this important effort. Eden is committed to using only pure, real-food ingredients and sources true vanilla, cocoa, and carob rather than artificial or so-called natural flavor additives.

The Organic Soy Scorecard shows organic standards are being circumvented as producers and corporations take short cuts achieving cheaper production. Eden Foods president Michael Potter said, “American organic food is at a crossroad. Will people accept a veneer of ‘organic’ and the erosion of what it means to be organic, or will they use the soy report to redirect their dollars demanding purity and quality? If the compromise of organic standards continues, there won’t be companies like Eden Foods.”

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) April 7, 2005

After dropping his UK label Referenda Records, SHIRTLIFTER went on to amaze fans passing 1,000,000 downloads of his music in every country in the wired world. SHIRTLIFTER continues to evolve as an artist by taking his fans on one of the most unique journeys with his sounds solely available via legal online downloads.

”SHIRTLIFTER comes up trumps with an intoxicating mix of house and melodic-driven club dance music. Turn it up, but make sure your speakers can cope!” A&R Magazine, USA

“You have a sound here, with a moving feel and funk that reeks of greatness.” Loren McDonald, Gods of Music, USA.

Celebrating his latest release, Fans In The City, his third album features ten unfamiliar and extraordinary takes on familiar genres of Electronic music and is released on his Authorized Recordings independent label (January 2005). SHIRTLIFTER certainly continues his tradition of making beautifully eclectic records. His style is comparable to FatBoy Slim, Daft Punk, or Moby, as SHIRTLIFTER perfectly intermixes Pop, House, Urban, Dance, and Lounge.

“…without physically selling records. It’s all about broadcast. Terrestrial and Internet,” says SHIRTLIFTER , founder of Authorized Recordings and JL Studios.

Across the Worldwide Web SHIRTLIFTER music became exposed through more than 300 music provider sites. StreamCast Networks, creators of Morpheus, launched an independent music promotion page titled MusicCity.com which initially featured eight selected artists, including SHIRTLIFTER . Across the universe of the Internet, tracks from SHIRTLIFTER ’s constantly expanding discography are being ranked on Top 10 Charts, such as Amazon and MP3.com.

Terrestrially, SHIRTLIFTER ’s music has been licensed to Music for Brands, Pump Audio, The Next Big Thing and Player’s Server. The track “Tear The Roof Off” was featured on Driven, produced in Britain for VH-1.The tracks “Sweet, Sweet Energy”, “Dance Psycho” and “Growler” have charted on CBC Galaxie Electronic’s Top 40. Meanwhile both “Turn My World Around” and “For Your Mind (Body & Soul)” have charted on the same network’s Galaxie Dance Top 40. SHIRTLIFTER music has been broadcast over the country’s air waves via CBC‘s Radio 2 and Radio Winnipeg and also on Global Groove Network’s Saturday Night’s Sessions.

Born in Ottawa, the capital of Canada, SHIRTLIFTER’s earliest musical experience was with four garbage cans in his parent’s garage. First influenced by electronic music with the invasion of electro-pop, disco and punk in the early 80’s, SHIRTLIFTER began creating House tracks as one half of Boy’s Life. By the late 90’s he had teamed up with the U.K.’s legendary DJ Paul Walker in pursuit of their mutual underground interests. SHIRTLIFTER has developed a unique sound, drawing inspiration from David Bowie, Duran Duran, Kraftwerk, Parliament and others.

”I went backwards according to Pop Musician’s Standards, ” SHIRTLIFTER adds, ” I was first a commercially successful artist, then my international clothing line paid for my studio.”
