Stremicks Heritage Foods has been named the recipient of the #1 Tasting Organic Milk in America award, bestowed by the prestigious American Masters of Taste. Headquartered in Santa Ana, Calif., the company operates in Santa Ana and Riverside, Calif.; Cedar City, Utah; Joplin, Missouri and Mexicali, Mexico.
Judged against other national organic milk products, Heritage Foods Organic Milk was selected as the winning product in the organic milk category for its superior taste in each of its varieties — Reduced Fat
2%, Low Fat 1%, Fat Free and Whole Milk Homogenized Milk. The judging was conducted by a panel of Masters of Taste executive chefs in a triple-blind taste test in Northern California. The Chef du Jury of this judging panel was famed 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 award; the Maitre Canardier de France award; and the Les Toques Blanches, Global and World Gourmet Society Hall of Fame award.
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.
