Benefits of organic milk

Researchers at Newcastle University have found that milk collected during a particularly poor UK summer and the following winter had significantly higher saturated fat content and far less beneficial fatty acids than in a more normal year. However, organic milk was less affected by the weather, and organic brands of milk available in supermarkets were higher in beneficial fatty acids such as CLA and omega-3 fatty acids all year round.
