Organic Milk: A Better Choice
A study conducted by researchers at Emory University found that a majority of non-organic milk tests positive for illegal antibiotics, high levels of growth hormones and controversial pesticide contaminants. Among the detected chemicals were amoxicillin, oxytetracycline, sulfamethazine, sulfadimethoxine, and sulfathiazole. The use of these antibiotics has long been banned by the FDA due to concerns about their impact on human health. The biggest health concern is a life-threatening allergic reaction (acute hypersensitivity), which can occur to about 2% of the general population.
Does this information frighten you as much as it does us? If it does, you’ve come to the right place. We never want you to be worrying about the possible allergic reaction that your family member may have while enjoying their scoop of Cookies & Cream. That is why we stick to Organic milk.
Organic dairy means there are no antibiotics, synthetic growth hormones, genetically engineered feed or conventional pesticides used in dairy production. Basically, cow are pasture-raised and grazed throughout the grazing season, and all cows are fed a certified organic diet. This way, your biggest concern at Lala’s can be if you’ve saved enough room for desert.
