Quality Standard Ratings for Organic Milk Brands

Here’s a guide from the Cornucopia Institute providing quality standard ratings for organic milk brands. With increased interest in organic and hormone-free milk comes a need for help in identifying the companies who meet organic standards, because the term “organic” isn’t strictly regulated.

| October/November 2007

This helpful guide from the Cornucopia Institute providing quality standard ratings for organic milk brands will help you choose the best brands of organic milk, rated on a scale of 1 to 5 cows.

The ever-growing popularity of all things organic has encouraged a boom in organic and hormone-free dairy products. While this trend gives us more healthy and affordable options at the grocery store, it also has given rise to a number of dairies willing to bend the rules for a share of the profit. But the Cornucopia Institute, a nonprofit small farm advocacy group, has developed quality standard ratings for organic milk brands and provided a way to enable consumers to identify the best dairy brands. The report, Maintaining the Integrity of Organic Milk, includes a scorecard that rates 68 different organic dairy brands against a set of criteria central to true organic standards. Check out the milk brand scorecard.

Organic milk ,in stores at least, is ultra-pasteurized in those cardboard containers. Yuck. There's nothing alive or healthy in it. Ultra-pasteurized milk is worse than pasteurized, so organic or not, it's still not good for you. It's a DEAD liquid! Learn about real milk. milk the way our bodies were designed to digest it.
