Organic Milk Is Healthier For People And The Planet, Any Time Of Year

January 17, 2011: 08:37 PM EST

Researchers in the United Kingdom found that organic supermarket milk is far higher in beneficial fatty acids than conventional, non-organic milk, and has between 30-50 percent less saturated fat. And while conventional milk shows seasonal and weather-related variability in both saturated fat and fatty acid content, organic milk shows no such effects: beneficial fatty acids like CLA and omega-3 are higher year-round. Researchers also uncovered a link between milk quality and climate change: wetter, cooler summers result in nutritionally-impoverished conventional milk.
