45% OFF SOY-FREE EGGS ENDS SUNDAY

Did you know that almost all commercial eggs today, including those that are organic or Omega 3 eggs, contain soy protein in the yolks? Even chickens raised on organic feed eat high concentrations of soy beans. So if eggs are a part of your diet today, so is soy protein, whether you realize it or not.

Tropical Traditions wanted to offer a soy-free egg from chickens that eat NO SOY. Tropical Traditions soy-free organic eggs have been tested to be soy-free! Our chickens are raised by family farmers and eat a coconut-based soy-free feed mixture that is certified organic, with no genetically modified grains (no GMOs!). Tropical Traditions developed the feed the chickens eat: Cocofeed. You can read more about Cocofeed here: Cocofeed.

Why No Soy? Soy has become a big part of the human diet post World War II, with the result that there are many people with soy allergies today, and many people today are trying to reduce or eliminate soy protein from their diet. (See the book: The Whole Soy Story) If you believe you are allergic to eggs, it could be that you are in fact allergic to soy protein that researchers have now found to be present in egg yolks. Soy is the cheapest protein available today, and it is a major component of most animal feeds. Cheap soy protein allows chickens to grow the fastest, and produce the maximum amount of eggs during their peak laying cycles.

In tropical cultures, coconut has been a traditional ingredient in chicken feed for hundreds, if not thousands of years. The coconut pulp residue left over after coconut oil is extracted from the coconut meat is still a common animal feed component today in places where coconuts grow. This coconut pulp is high in fiber and protein. Mechanically extracted coconut pulp was also approved by the FDA as an animal feed and listed in the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials, Official Publication) as early as 1955. While coconut cannot supply ALL the nutritional needs of chickens, there are multitudes of studies that have been done in the Philippines and elsewhere showing how coconut pulp can be a major component of chicken feeds when combined with other quality ingredients. Some of these studies are more than 50 years old!

Highest Omega 3 Content! We don't simply add flaxseed or flax meal to our chicken feed to make it "high Omega 3." In addition to eliminating soy and using organic coconut pulp, our chickens eat a high quality fish meal and crab meal. Our fish meal is from deep ocean water small fish, and our crab meal comes from the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest or Nova Scotia. They are very high quality products that add not only a high quality protein to replace soybeans, but also the purest form of Omega 3 fatty acids that come from fish sources. Laboratory testing has shown that our eggs contain almost twice as much of the Omega 3 fatty acids as other organic "Omega 3" eggs that derive their Omega 3 fatty acids from flax seeds. And we not only add high quality Omega 3 sources to our chicken's diet, we completely eliminate the high amount of Omega 6 fatty acids that are contained in soy. Most nutritionists agree that our diet is unbalanced in its ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids because of the abundance of soy and corn in our diets today. Tropical Traditions organic soy-free high Omega 3 eggs supply a much better Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio because of the absence of soy.

These eggs do not come from "factory birds" where the chickens are kept in cages their whole lives and never see sunlight or go outdoors. In the summer, these chickens are pastured on lush Wisconsin grass where they are free to roam around and eat other things besides their Cocofeed, such as bugs, worms, etc. They do spend more time indoors during the cold winter months, but they are cage free even then, and eat a balanced diet with our specially formulated nutritious Cocofeed.

Tropical Traditions has developed a special box for delivering eggs to you! This box is designed to hold four dozen eggs. The box and dividers are 100% recyclable, and no plastic or bubble wrap is used. We have tested these boxes, and the eggs do not break! But even if they do, we will gladly refund or reship, so you can order in confidence!

Now, you can purchase these soy-free eggs which are high in Omega 3 fatty acids at 45% OFF their retail price. Don’t miss this opportunity!.

BUY 2 GET 2 FREE - GOLD LABEL VIRGIN COCONUT OIL PINTS 

Almost all "virgin" coconut oils sold on the market today are mass-produced by machine. But Tropical Traditions is committed to time-honored traditional practices that have produced healthy coconut oil for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Our Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is still produced by hand, using the traditional wet-milling process of extracting the oil from fresh coconuts. Our producers have learned a lot of things over the years, since most of them have been producing this oil for over 10 years now. They have learned how to pick out the best coconuts from each harvest that produce the best quality oil. Independent laboratory analysis shows this to be one of the highest quality coconut oils on the market, having the highest levels of antioxidants. This enhanced Virgin Coconut Oil is now in the US market under the Tropical Traditions Gold Label brand. It meets our strictest standards to earn this designation. Today when you buy Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, you are buying the highest quality coconut oil we have to offer, and it is still made by hand and benefiting families in the rural areas of the Philippines where the coconuts grow. 

Now, through Sunday, November 20th only, you can purchase 2 pints of certified organic Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions and get 2 more FREE. That's a $100.00 retail value for only $50.00 and a $29.80 savings over our regular sale price! Order here.

30% OFF SOY-FREE GROUND CHICKEN

What makes Tropical Traditions Pastured Poultry different from other chickens?

1. Tropical Traditions Pastured Poultry are raised outdoors on pasture.
Commercially produced chickens are raised entirely indoors with tens of thousands of other chickens in close quarters. They typically never see the sun or pasture. Organic or "Free Range" chickens also have no standard definition or industry guidelines for how long chickens must be outdoors on pasture, leaving the consumer very confused. The USDA definition of "free-range" is rather vague. In order to label their meat and poultry "free-range or free-roaming," "Producers must demonstrate to the Agency that the poultry has been allowed access to the outside." (1) No mention of vegetation (pasture) is made. Poultry producers themselves seem to have no common standards on what the term means. Some producers interpret "access to the outside" as a small pop-door (chicken door) on an end-wall of a 100 ft. long shed filled with un-caged birds moving about freely on a litter-covered floor. Others feel they are compliant with the spirit of free-range if their birds are outside in the open air and under the sun; even if their "range" is simply bare dirt.

When it comes to the consumer's perception of "free-range," arguably the vision that "free-range" most often conjures is of a bird happily hunting and pecking in the grass in an open field. Because of the wholesomeness associated with the term "organic," many consumers take for granted that all certified organic poultry raised for meat and eggs are raised outside on green pasture. Sadly, this is not so. The term "free-range" is not even listed in the NOP (National Organic Program) "terms defined." They do give guidelines that say: "All organically raised animals must have access to the outdoors..." So when someone purchases poultry products labeled "free range" or "organic," the birds may never have actually seen the light of day or green grass its entire life. Technically, they simply have to have a door out of their confinement, but they don't have to necessarily walk through that door to meet the requirements.

2. Tropical Traditions pastured poultry are fed Cocofeed which contains no soy.
Cocofeed is an organic chicken-feed ration developed by Tropical Traditions that contains coconut pulp as well as other high-quality natural ingredients. The coconut pulp is the residue left over after coconut oil has been extracted from the coconut meat. Cocofeed contains NO soy.

In tropical cultures, coconut has been a traditional ingredient in chicken feed for hundreds, if not thousands of years. The coconut pulp residue left over after coconut oil was extracted from the coconut meat is still a common animal feed component today in places where coconuts grow. This coconut pulp is high in fiber and protein. Mechanically extracted coconut pulp was also approved by the FDA as an animal feed and listed in the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials, Official Publication) as early as 1955. While coconut cannot supply ALL the nutritional needs of chickens, there are multitudes of studies that have been done in the Philippines and elsewhere showing how coconut pulp can be a major component of chicken feeds when combined with other quality ingredients. Some of these studies are more than 50 years old.

In more recent history, with the development of fast-growing "broiler" factory chickens, soy has become a key ingredient in chicken feeds for the purpose of supplying a high concentration of protein to promote fast growth. It is very difficult to find a chicken in the US market today that has not been fed high soy-based feeds. Even chickens advertised as "organic" or "free range" are almost always fed an organic mixture high in soybeans.

3. Tropical Traditions pastured poultry are raised by family farmers.
Tropical Traditions Pastured Poultry chickens are all raised by family farmers. These farmers run diversified farms practicing sustainable agriculture. They will rotate tracts of land with crops and other animals, or let it go fallow from time to time. When a batch of chickens is raised on a piece of pasture, typically that pasture will not see chickens again for two or more years. In the interval, crops may be grown in that pasture, or it may go fallow allowing grass to grow, die, and decompose so that the soil is kept in balance and not contaminated from too much chicken manure. So when you buy Tropical Traditions pastured poultry, you are supporting small-scale family farmers and by-passing the system that produces the conventional "factory chicken."

Our soy-free ground chicken includes the whole bird, both white and dark meat! This is the meat only - NO bones. Note: Our family processor in Wisconsin that grinds this up for us is no longer USDA inspected, only State of Wisconsin inspected, so we cannot ship it across state lines for human consumption - only as pet food.

Now, you can save 30% off of our retail price on a package of our Soy-free Ground Chicken (approx. 1 lb.). That's a $15.00 retail value for only $10.50 and a $2.39 savings over our normal sale price! Order here.
