Mercola – So, you’re familiar with the problems associated with conventional pasteurized milk and you’ve started buying (and paying more for) organic milkinstead. If you think you’re doing your health a great favor, you may be shocked to find out some organic milk brands contain omega-3-rich oil made from corn syrup-fed algae. As noted by The Washington Post:1
“‘DHA Omega-3 Supports Brain Health,’ according to the Horizon cartons sold in supermarkets around the United States. What the Horizon milk carton doesn’t advertise is that some of its contents were brewed in closed stainless steel vats of Schizochytrium. This omission avoids any ick reaction from shoppers, but consumer advocates say it also dodges a key question: Is milk supplemented with an oil brewed in a factory really ‘organic?’ ‘We do not think that [the oil] belongs in organic foods,’ said Charlotte Vallaeys, a senior policy analyst, at Consumer Reports.
