Stremicks Heritage Foods yesterday said it received the "#1 Tasting Organic Milk in America" award from the organization American Masters of Taste, because of its "superior taste in each of its varieties -- Reduced Fat 2%, Low Fat 1%, Fat Free and Whole Milk Homogenized Milk."
The milk was judged against other organic rivals by a panel of Masters of Taste executive chefs in a triple-blind taste test in Northern California.
The judging panel was led by Jesse Sartain, the founder and national director of the American Masters of Taste, and the Chefs In America Awards Foundation. Sartain also is a culinary winner of the Maitre du Gout award; the James Beard Foundation's "Who's Who" award; the Maitre Canardier de France award; and the Les Toques Blanches, Global and World Gourmet Society Hall of Fame award, Stremicks Heritage Foods said.
"We present competing products head-to-head in a blind taste test with the same judging protocol," said Chef Sartain. "The primary focus is to select and endorse products that are superior in taste to their competitors; we've judged over 200,000 products. Heritage Organic Milk's taste was clearly superior to all of the other organic milk products we judged."
The protocols of triple-blind judging include several ground rules to ensure accurate and fair results. As an example, evaluators do not know the product's manufacturer, its variety or appellation. In addition, the judges do not know the scores and comments of other evaluators.
"Our Organic Milk is produced locally in California, and is the only organic milk product to receive the "Real California Seal" certifying its authenticity and high quality of standards," said Sam Stremick, vice president of sales and marketing for Heritage Foods.
