Product Ingredients and Nutritionals

Everyone at Against The Grain cares deeply about the ingredient quality and content of our products. Everything we use is simple, fresh, and recognizable as a bona fide food substance. As we all know, much processed food is full of ingredients that read like an advanced chemistry textbook. The industrialization of our food has moved into the gluten free world and now many gluten free foods are full of preservatives, additives, chemical binders, flavor enhancers, bio-engineered enzymes, and modified starches.

We want no part of this. We obtain our ingredients and raw materials from as many local sources as possible. Our dairy is McNamara Dairy in Plainfield, NH, and their milk contains no BHT, rBGH, or preservatives. We use expeller-pressed non-GMO canola oil. We use shell eggs from humanely-treated hens supplied by Maple Meadows Farms, in Salisbury, VT. Maple Meadow is a family-owned egg producer, and their birds are never treated with antibiotics or hormones. We use tapioca starch—not modified tapioca starch—in our ingredients, which is bleached in the production process, but it is not chemically "modified." Our coconut milk is 100% organic. Our cheese has no added growth hormones, no anti-caking agents, and is natamycin free, and it comes from the milk of dairy cows that are routinely veterinarian inspected.

Look at the Nutritional Information on our products, and you will see that we are serious about the simplicity and decency of our ingredients. You can recognize and pronounce every substance we use.

Attributes Key

We're proud of the ingredients in all of our products and we want our customers to understand why. Below you'll see the list of ingredients for each of our products. Note the letter symbols after many of them, which list various attributes of each, such as Non-GMO, Fresh, Local, and so on. The key below explains each of the attribute codes used.



​(N) Non-GMO

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) as "organisms in which the genetic material (DNA) has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally." Ingredients with this attribute are certified non-GMO. Ingredients that are certified organic are also considered non-GMO, but we only list ingredients as non-GMO when we have certificates stating they are non-GMO.

​(L) Local

At Against The Grain Gourmet, we define local as any ingredient that comes from New England.

​(F) Family Owned and Operated

Support your local farms! That is our view at Against The Grain. Since we work closely with our farmers, most of whom have been working with us for years, we know they take extreme caution in protecting and caring for their crops and animals.

​(H) Humane

We believe that animals should be treated with dignity and respect, and that the best way to do that is to allow them to display their natural tendencies. We work with farmers who are doing things the right way. This includes raising animals humanely, without the use of antibiotics or hormones.

​(O) Organic

We support farmers who follow responsible practices and seek to nourish healthy soil. USDA organic certification is among the most widely accepted standards for responsible agriculture. Items marked with the "O" here are those ingredients that are certified organic. Items that are certified organic are also considered non-GMO.

​(A) Antibiotic and rBGH Free

All milk products we use are grade A and contain no hormones or preservatives. Before bottling, the milk is tested for antibiotics by law. If a cow is sick, a veterinarian is called in and, if necessary, the cow is treated with antibiotics. The milk of that cow is then held until it tests negative for the presence of antibiotics.

​(R) Rennet and rBGH Free

We use high quality low fat mozzarella cheese and Parmesan made from the milk of dairy cows that are routinely veterinarian inspected. No animal rennet is used in the cheese making process so it is vegetarian friendly. Our cheeses have no added growth hormones, no anti-caking agents, and are natamycin free.

​(S) Seasonally Local

We purchase these ingredients locally when it is in season. We define local as any ingredient that comes from a farm located within 100 miles from our facility in Brattleboro, VT.

​(U) Uncured

The USDA defines "uncured" to indicate products that have not been preserved by adding sodium nitrite, sodium nitrate or a salt cure. When you see uncured on a product label, that tells you that the product does not contain added sodium nitrate or sodium nitrite.
