Organic Milk is Healthier!

January 18th, 2011

Could it be? Organic milk really is better for you (and not just more expensive). So, it seems that what’s good for the planet is also good for your body and waistline.

According to new research from the UK’s Newcastle University, organic milk from the supermarket has higher levels of nutritionally beneficial fatty acids than conventional milk. Organic milk was of better quality, regardless of weather conditions or the time of year.

Study leader Gillian Butler says that if you choose organic milk, you can reduce saturated fats by 30 to 50% while still getting the same level of beneficial fatty acids. Of course, this study was done with UK milk, but it stands to reason that the same results could be replicated in the U.S.

Do you choose organic milk?

    That definitely makes sense. I’ve been drinking organic milk for the past year after watching Food Inc. the documentary. The only bad thing about it is the price. Its too bad that it is double the price of regular milk. Either way you look at it, organic is always the better option.
