In early 2014, in the largest ever meta-study comparing organic and conventional milk nutrient profiles, findings reveal that organic milk has significantly higher levels of essential omega-3 fatty acids, a more healthful ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids and higher levels of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid).
Studies continue to verify the findings—organic food is more nutritious!
A peer-reviewed study by Washington State University, published by PLOS One, opened eyes to the nutritional advantage of organic milk:
A 2014 Newcastle University meta-study found significantly higher levels of beneficial antioxidants, less pesticide residue and lower levels of cadmium in organic crops versus conventional crops.
A 2015 Newcastle University study confirms earlier findings of organic nutrient benefits in organic milk—and in organic meat as well!
