Co-operation can be more nutritious

The Organic Milk Suppliers Cooperative (OMSCo) is the UK’s largest organic milk co-op, producing fresh organic milk which can be bought from suppliers such as Sainsbury’s, organic cheese such as the award-winning Cropwell Bishop stilton and organic yogurt such as those made by Yeo Valley Organic.

New evidence is being found that organic milk is more nutritious than non-organic milk. According to research published in the Journal of Dairy Science, organic milk is naturally higher in omega 3 essential fatty acids than non-organic milk because organic cows are often fed higher levels of natural red clover than non-organic cows.

This is great news as most people in the UK are deficient in Omega 3 fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining a healthy heart, supple and flexible joints, healthy growth and strong bones and teeth.

British organic milk is different to non-organic milk. It comes from cows that – unlike conventional cows – are not given routine antibiotics and have not grazed on pastures treated with artificial pesticides.
