Need we say more? 7 reasons why organic milk is better than regular milk

Looking to be a conscious consumer? Want to prioritize your nutrition? Want to get healthy from within? Looking at exploring the latest food trends?

Whatever your reason may be, organic food has got you covered. In simple terms, organic food refers to produce grown as per organic farming practices and without use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

Here are top 7 reasons why you should consider making the switch to an organic diet – fruits, vegetables and milk:

7. No More GMO

Because organic food is grown by nature, the use of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is prohibited in organic food and milk. An organic farmer can’t plant GMO seeds and an organic cow can’t eat GMO alfalfa or corn etc – ensuring that organic milk that you drink is GMO-free

6. The farm is home to biodiversity

Organic farms are eco-systems where an assortment of flora and fauna live and thrive in tandem with each other. Organic dairy farms provide a safe haven for birds, bees and insects along with cows, vegetables and other plants

5. Kindness at the forefront

At Akshayakalpa farms, just like other organic farms, our cows are treated like family. They are free-roaming with access to nutritious food and clean drinking water 24/7. They have their own mattresses to sleep on and a vet-on-call keeps them healthy and happy. A humane and ethical treatment of all stakeholders involved is an important aspect of organic dairy and food

4. Say goodbye to chemicals in milk

Because organic farming shuns the use of artificial pesticides, insecticides and fertilizers, organically produced food and dairy are void of chemical residues. According to a study published in a public health journal called ‘Public Health Nutrition’, (1)samples of conventional milk tested positive for antibiotics and pesticide residue as opposed to organic milk.

3. Support local communities

Organic farming and dairy help create opportunities for farmers to achieve a stable, sufficient and regular income. At the heart of the Akshayakalpa is our community of rural farmers that strictly follow organic farming practices to better not just their lives but the quality of their consumer’s lives too. Organic milk helps give the farming profession the respect it deserves.

2. There is no Planet B

Organic food and dairy are mindful of their impact on the world around them. Organic farming practices focus on maintaining the quality of the soil through eco-friendly practices rather than pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Akshayakalpa Organic farms follow closed loop farming where the needs of the farm are met by the farm itself. Rainwater harvesting, composting, use of biogas etc are other practices that help organic milk give back to the land and planet more than it takes from it.

1. More nutrition, Better health

Studies show that organic milk contains 25% lesser Omega-6 fatty acids and 62% more Omega-3 fatty acids compared to regular, conventional milk. (2)Organic milk is free from contamination and has a varied nutritional package. Apart from calcium and vitamin D, it is also rich in rich-quality protein that help boost immunity and assist with the overall wellness of the body
