Our soup recipe originated in the early ‘80s in the Byerly’s St. Paul deli. It was produced in small batches and packaged in mason jars. Lunds also made a wild rice soup, albeit a slightly different recipe with both white and wild rice and chicken. A few years after Lunds and Byerly’s merged, we consolidated our wild rice soups and the Byerly’s version became standard in our delis.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air pollution is among the world’s top five environmental health risks, so it’s something everyone should consider. And work to improve.
Ever heard of sick building syndrome? It’s real and a common risk for people, especially those in sealed office buildings. Our surroundings and the toxins in the air affect our mood, perceptions, and energy levels, plus our susceptibility to sickness. That doesn’t bode well for overall health and productivity.

OK, before you read this you should know I’ve researched this topic since 1997 and believe truth in labeling is one of the most important issues for consumers. People can choose the products they want, however they should know what they’re buying. It’s been my experience that companies not using controversial ingredients will tell you, usually right on the package (i.e. GMO free), while companies using controversial ingredients most likely won’t tell you.
So read on my friends and learn about rBGH, an ingredient that you may not know you’re consuming.
