We have been receiving questions and concerns regarding our price, chemicals/preservative, availability and shelf life.

On average there is over 9000 environmental chemicals on the market that end up in the food we eat. This may include but is not limited to food additives, coloring, artificial flavors, pesticides ad some packaging has chemicals in it.

Some of the additives that came be harmful are:

  • Sodium nitrate: Added to processed meats to stop bacterial growth. ...

  • Sulfites: Used to keep prepared foods fresh. ...

  • Azodicarbonamide: Used in bagels and buns. ...

  • Potassium bromate: Added to breads to increase volume. ...

  • Propyl gallate: Added to fat-containing products.

The reason chemicals are used in process foods is 1. Food production: chemicals make production more affordable for manufacturers. 2. Other chemicals can be used to fight bacteria and mold from growing. 3. Preservation: adding chemicals to food prolongs shelve life. For example: a can of string beans, if stored properly can last anywhere from 3-5 years. But a package of fresh string beans will only be fresh for about 7 - 10 days. Most additives are only harmful if taken in large doses. For example if you only eat can goods and process foods every single day, over time you will start to notice different effects from the additives and chemicals. I notice that process foods were effecting my daughter asthma, I started to notice breathing issues as well as high blood pressure within myself. Once I removed processed foods from our diet. I notice a vast improvement in our health. Which is why my goal when creating Taylor Homemade, was to ensure that all products are created without the assistance of chemicals. What does this mean for our business?

Being a small business that focuses on fresh products has disadvantages for both the business owner as well as the consumer. Creating fresh organic products come at a higher cost, which unfortunately means a higher price tag for the consumer. Being a start up company we are unable to produce in mass quantities therefore supplies are limited. And not including chemicals in our products unfortunately means a shorter shelve life. Starting March 1, 2020, we will ship storage directions with every order.

In regards to pricing, our pricing is based on production cost and labor. We often offer discounts, subscribe to our website and follow us on Instagram and Facebook for updates. Our goal over the next year is to secure a storefront, in order to offer our customers space to house more product. Until then please bear with us as we continue to serve you.

Thank you for your overwhelming support of Taylor Homemade.
