Organic is different.

That is indeed what a new study, just recently published in the British Journal of Nutrition has shown – namely, that “organic milk (including butter, cream, cheese and yoghurt) and meat contain around 50% more beneficial omega-3 fatty acids than non-organic.”

Here is the digest:

  • both organic milk (dairy) and meat contain around 50% more beneficial omega-3 fatty acids than conventionally produced products
  • organic meat had slightly lower concentrations of two saturated fats linked to heart disease
  • organic milk and dairy contains 40% more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) – (CLA has been linked to a range of health benefits including reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, certain cancers and obesity)
  • organic milk and dairy contains slightly higher concentrations of iron, Vitamin E and some carotenoids
  • organic milk contains less iodine than non-organic milk

At Bio-tiful Dairy we fully support the idea that our diets ought to be defined by organic, local, seasonal food and moderation – as we strongly believe this approach facilitates a healthy & happy body and environment.

Live Biotifully.
