Produced by family farmers in harmony with nature without antibiotics, synthetic hormones or pesticides. All Organic Valley dairy farms are pasture-based, meaning a major portion of the cows’ diet comes from certified organic pasture. When cows eat well, you do, too!
Our bodies cannot produce omega-3, so we rely on food sources for this vital fatty acid. At all stages of life, omega-3 fatty acids are required to ensure overall health and well-being. They play a crucial role in brain and eye development and function, as well as cardiovascular health. Plants are full of omega-3 fatty acids, so food products from grass-fed animals are a source of omega-3, and contain much more of it than those from grain-fed animals.
Your family's health may depend on it. The overly-processed foods we eat today contain too much omega-6 and too few of the omega-3 essential fatty acids that play a crucial role in brain and eye development and function, as well as cardiovascular health. What's the best ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 in your diet? 1:1 is the ideal. 3:1 is acceptable. Today's typical diets create ratios as skewed as 30:1!
CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is a "good" trans fat and is the best indicator that a cow's diet includes plenty of pasture. Although CLA is best known for its anticancer properties, researchers have also found that CLA can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and help fight inflammation.
