The True Story About Organic Meat
Company Teams Up With Registered Dieticians And Food Experts To
Help Consumers Make Ethical and Nutritious Choices About Protein
True Story, makers of organic and Project Non-GMO Certified sausages, hot dogs, deli meats, and fresh pork have partnered with registered dieticians and food experts Regina Ragone and Elizabeth Fassberg to educate consumers and retailers about the health benefits of organic and non-GMO meats.
Regina Ragone, MS, RD, former food director at Family Circle, food editor of Prevention and author of Meals That Heal and Elizabeth Fassberg, MPH, RD and CDN, the owner of the food and nutrition consultancy Eat Food who has partnered with Dr. Oz’s HealthCorps and Jamie Oliver. Ragone and Fassberg have spent years counseling food lovers and food creators to improve lives through making better choices about their food.
“WhOrganic Apple & Wildflower Honey Chicken Sausageile plant based alternatives are gaining in popularity, the majority of Americans are still eating meat every day.” adds Ragone.
“If we can guide them to make better choices about the meat they choose to eat, we can have a huge impact on their diet and their lives,” says Faasberg.
“Animal protein sources, such as lean meats like True Story, are similar to the protein found in your body. These protein sources are considered to be complete sources of protein because they contain all of the essential amino acids that your body needs to function effectively. Plant protein sources, such as beans, lentils and nuts are considered to be incomplete, since they lack one or more of the essential amino acids that your body needs,” says Regina Ragone RD.
“Lean animal protein contains several nutrients lacking in plant based protein. These essential nutrients include: heme-iron which is much better absorbed in the body than non-heme iron from plant-based protein; vitamin B12 which is only found in animal protein, it is an essential nutrient needed to help your body make red blood cells and keep the brain and nervous system healthy and zinc which is essential for growth and helps the immune system work properly. Zinc is mostly found and better absorbed and used from animal protein sources,” adds Elizabeth Faasberg RD.
The pair have created tips and recipes to help consumers find healthy and humanely raised proteins to add to their everyday meals now available here.
Here are some helpful tips when choosing proteins in your diet from Ragone and Faasberg:
· For a satisfying afternoon snack try a slice of True Story Organic Uncured Applewood Smoked Ham or Organic Oven Roasted Turkey Breast, a couple of whole grain crackers and a slice of apple. Protein plays a key role in regulating your hunger hormone so eating a protein-rich snack helps you to feel more satisfied between meals.*
· Start your day with a hearty balanced breakfast — to boost the flavor add True Story Organic Apple & Wildflower Honey Chicken Sausage and some greens to your omelet and don’t forget a piece of fruit to top it off! People tend to get most of their protein during evening meals and the least at breakfast. Moving some protein from dinner to breakfast can help with weight management by decreasing hunger and cravings throughout the day. **
· Choosing organic can make it simpler to know more about how your food is raised. Organic meats are raised without GMOs, pesticides, and chemical fertilizers. The foods cannot contain synthetic preservatives.

Our study combined multiple experiments to confirm the presence of an effect.”
