Food & Groceries: Organic Meat And Dairy Products Are Healthier

Organic meat and dairy products offer consumers several health benefits:

Organic cows grazing on fresh pasture produce milk with higher levels of antioxidants and beneficial fatty acids such as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and omega-three fatty acids, according to research findings from Newcastle University in the United Kingdom.

Organic milk contained 68 percent more omega-3 fatty acids, on average, than conventional milk according to a three-year study (2002-2005) by the Universities of Liverpool and Glasgow in the United Kingdom (sponsored by the Organic Milk Suppliers' Co-operative).

A European research team has found that mothers consuming mostly organic milk and meat products have about 50 percent higher levels of rumenic acid, a conjugated linoleic acid, in their breast milk.
