Drinking organic milk has greater health benefits than drinking normal milk, according to a new study.
Scientists found higher levels of vitamins, antioxidants and “healthy” fat in milk from organically farmed animals.
The researchers believe that letting cows graze on fresh grass boosts the nutritional value of their milk. The benefits could include a lower risk of cancer and heart disease.
The study, which analysed produce from 25 farms, found that organic milk contained 67 per cent more antioxidants and vitamins than ordinary milk. Scientists at Newcastle University also found organic milk contained 60 per cent more of a healthy fatty acid called conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA9, which tests have shown can shrink tumours.
