Soda’s Alter Ego

Filtered water, flavor, sweetener, and carbon dioxide: the basic recipe for all soda. What’s different about our concotions? We source and use only highest-quality, certified organic fruit extracts, teas, honey, herbs, and agave for each of our Sipp varieties. We take soda seriously enough to skip artificial flavors, additives, and cheap sweeteners.

Free Range
Generally the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) allows these words on a label when the chicken has had access to the outdoors for part of the day. Not all free-range chicken is organic, but all organic chicken is free range.

This USDA-regulated term means the chicken has been fed only certified organic feed that was grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. The chicken also has not been given antibiotics at any time—though it may have been vaccinated against common diseases.

Raised without antibiotics
This means the bird was not given medicine classified as antibiotics. Keep in mind that it may have been given other drugs and products to control parasites or other animal health risks.

Certified humane
A nonprofit organization called Humane Farm Animal Care administers the use of this label—also endorsed by the Center for Food Safety—by processors that meet its standards for raising, handling, transporting, and slaughtering various animals, including chickens.

All-vegetable or vegetarian diet
Most poultry feed is made from corn and soybean meal, but sometimes it also contains processed meat and poultry by-products (which include cooked, dried and ground chicken parts, such as intestines and heads). If the feed does not contain these fats and proteins, it can be classified as all-vegetable or vegetarian.

Most enhanced birds have been injected with a saltwater solution or broth to give them a saltier flavor and moist texture. The process can increase the amount of sodium in chicken by a whopping five times or more. Check the label: if the chicken contains 300 mg of sodium per 4-ounce serving or more, it’s been enhanced. Also, enhanced chicken often costs the same as unenhanced chicken, so if you buy a 7½-lb. chicken and it has 15 percent salt water in it, you’re essentially paying for more than a pound of salt water.

All commercial chickens are raised on farms, so any chicken could theoretically carry this label.

No hormones added
This is meaningless, since the Food and Drug Administration prohibits all poultry in the U.S. from being given artificial or added hormones.

You may see this on marketing materials, which are not regulated by the USDA, but it shouldn’t show up on labels. Antibiotic-free (not to be confused with raised without antibiotics) means no antibiotic residue is left in the meat when it’s processed, which is true for all chicken because treatment is stopped prior to slaughter.

Emek Refaim Street in Jerusalem is always bustling with the trendiest restaurants. Here’s who is opening up or closing these days.

1. Mexican food has finally come to Jerusalem! (Well, Mike’s Place has always had it, and so does Roza, but people still complain that there’s no Mexican here.) Burrito King is at Emek Refaim 54 where Burgerim used to be, and offers vachos, tacos, burritos, fajitas, and all that sort of stuff. Here’s the menu

2. Right next door, where Moshava 54 used to be, is now Yosef HaDayag, with a fancy fish menu. Sorry for not taking a picture of their menu, because it had some of the worst English translations I’d seen on a menu in a long time (Lebanonic Humus, anyone?)

3. Replacing Holy Bagel will soon be something called Coney Island Knish. YES!

4. On the corner with Rachel Imenu, Marvad Haksamim has closed, and will be replaced by Ness Bakery and Dairy Cafe. Marvad opened up a storefront next door though, and will sell its delicious takeout food on Fridays.

5. Their competition for takeout food will be steep. A few doors down, on Rachel Imeinu 5, a new branch of Grill Plus opened, under the name Take Me Home. Their grand opening Tuesday offered free food, like kebabs, schnitzels, kuba, and Morrocan cigars.

6. Cinnabon is opening where Burgers Bar used to be.
