Organic whole milk is nutritious and healthy! Rich in calcium, organic whole milk is also a great source of protein and Vitamin D.
Our organic whole milk is from Organic Valley, a cooperative owned by family farmers. Organic Valley has been a leader in organic agriculture from the very beginning; their philosophy and decisions are based on the health and welfare of people, animals and the earth.
The organic milk used in Brio is produced without the use of pesticides and herbicides, and is made from cows that are not treated with antibiotics and growth hormones (such as rBST). It’s also non-GMO.
You’ll feel great knowing that the milk in Brio is from pasture-raised cows. Recent studies show that organic whole milk from pasture-raised cows is higher in Omega 3s, has a more healthful balance of essential fatty acids and more Conjugated Linolei Acid (CLA), all good news for you.
With pasture-raised cows, the major portion of the cows’ diet comes from the pasture, from the nutrient-rich grasses that they love. (In winter, when fresh grass is scarce, the cows receive some grains and hay.) Pasture-raised cows are also out in the sunshine and fresh air, much more than their barn-raised counterparts. We share Organic Valley’s view that healthy, happy cows produce more delicious, healthy milk.
