FOOD AND YOUR HEALTH
Science has shown us that what we eat greatly determines our health. This realization has motivated many of us to find out more about the food we eat. Contrary to processed foods, fresh or natural and organic foods, free of pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and preservatives, provide us with an abundance of health boosting compounds.
Earthcare Aquaculture is committed to your health. All the shrimp produced at EarthCare Aquaculture under the brand Okeechobee Shrimp are unadulterated by chemicals, preservatives, antibiotics or hormones.
DANGERS IN A COMPLEX AND GLOBAL FOOD SUPPLY
Many of the foods we eat come to us thru a complex global process. The shrimp we eat in the US is predominantly an imported frozen shrimp. There is no single international regulating body that can guarantee to US consumers that a food safety breakdown has not occurred in this complex chain of supply. That leaves our food and consequently part of our health in the hands of companies too far removed from the watchful eye of US regulatory agencies and possibly under questionable standards.
The reality in the seafood trade is that the percentage of imported shrimp containers that are tested for compliance to US standards is less than 2%. And there is already a history of tainted shrimp imports. Ask where your shrimp comes from? How is it produced? What chemicals are used? How many hands does it pass before coming to you? You deserve to know, though you may not like the answers you get. EarthCare Aquaculture shrimp are produced to the Florida Dept. of Agriculture standards and under the watchful eye of the United States Department of Agriculture.
