For 30 years, Applegate has been producing high-quality natural and organic hot dogs, bacon, sausages, deli meats, cheese and frozen products. Our products are made without GMO ingredients and we source our meat from farms, where animals are treated with care and respect and are allowed to grow at their natural rate, all part of our mission – Changing The Meat We Eat®. Natural can mean many things, but to Applegate natural means that the meat inside our products are:
- From animals raised humanely without antibiotics, hormones or growth promotants
- From animals fed a vegetarian or 100% grass diet
- Free of added chemical nitrites, nitrates or phosphates
- Free of artificial ingredients or preservatives
Applegate became a stand-alone subsidiary of Hormel Foods in July 2015. For more information about our products, visit www.applegate.com or talk with us on www.facebook.com/applegate or twitter.com/Applegate.
Think of the Whole30 like pushing the reset button for your health, habits and relationship with food. For thirty days, you’ll eat nothing but nutrient dense, whole foods. You’ll eliminate foods that nutritional science and clinical experience have shown to promote unhealthy cravings and habits, disrupt your metabolism, damage your digestive tract, and burden your immune system. After thirty days you’ll carefully and systematically reintroduce those foods, paying attention to how they affect you in a variety of ways like mood, energy, digestion, body composition and more. With that knowledge, you can create the perfect diet for you: a nutrition plan that is balanced, sustainable and keeps you looking, feeling and living your best.
