Moo Juice....What is the difference in Regular and Organic?

THE GOOD STUFF
Grass-fed cows (vs. grain-fed) deliver two essential fats: conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and omega-3s, making their milk micronutrient-rich. Organic indicates that the cattle receive no synthetic hormones or antibiotics. Non-homogenized means the product hasn’t been chemically altered, changing the way we digest it (and increasing likelihood of allergic reactions). Opaque paper packaging blocks light from degrading the quality of the milk.





THE BAD STUFF

 Most generic brands have been robbed of the micronutrients that make milk worth drinking to begin
with. Furthermore, non-organic cattle are eating crops injected with genes from other organisms to manipulate their DNA (GMOs, or genetically modified organisms) and increase industrial efficiency.


I know we are the only mammals to drink milk after we stop breast feeding, but I love milk. You just need to stick to skim milk to save fat and calories.
