1.What is organic milk powder ?
An organic product is made from organic raw materials. Processed organic food usually contains only organic ingredients. If non-organic ingredients are present, at least a certain percentage of the food’s total plant and animal ingredients must be organic (95% in the United States, Canada, China and Australia).
It also requires Organic certification. Organic certification is a certification process for producers of organic food and other organic agricultural products. Requirements vary from country to country, and generally involve a set of production standards for growing, storage, processing, packaging and shipping.
2.What about claims that organic milk contains no pesticides, antibiotics or hormones?
The definition of organic milk refers to farm management practices, not to the milk itself. Stringent government standards ensure that both organic milk and regular milk are wholesome, safe and nutritious. While the organic standard is defined differently in different jurisdictions, in general organic farming responds to site-specific farming and crop conditions by integrating cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. Synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers are not allowed, although certain organically approved pesticides may be used under limited conditions. In general, organic foods are also not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or chemical food additives.
3.Does organic milk taste better?
The taste of milk, regardless of whether it is organically or conventionally produced, can differ slightly on a variety of sensory qualities from bottle to bottle and season to season. Factors that may impact taste include location of the farm, breed of the cow, variations in cows’ feed from farm to farm, and even the time of year. Milk that is ultra-pasteurized for longer freshness may have a slightly different taste. People should do their own “taste test” to see which kinds of milk they prefer.
4.Is organic milk fresher than regular milk?
Not necessarily. Most milk, including organic and regular milk, is delivered to stores within a few days of milking. With modern distribution systems, both types of milk may travel hundreds of miles from farm to retail outlet. Dairy farmers and processors work diligently to provide fresh milk to the marketplace.
