Organic Valley Grass-fed Milk?

Commented on November 07, 2013
Created November 06, 2013 at 2:52 AM

So, basically I decided to go to my local supermarket, and I was walking through the dairy aisle. I was looking to pick my normal grass-fed un-homogenized milk, when I all of a sudden I see that Organic Valley is now carrying grass-fed un-homogenized milk. I am somewhat skeptical, because Organic Valley did not have grass-fed un-homogenized until, about a month ago. So, I went on the website, and it stated their grass-fed milk is from 100% pasture raised cows, and is not supplemented with any grains or soy. Is this too good to be true?

I do have an allergy to cow casein, but not to buffalo, goat, or sheep - I can consume cheeses from those without issue. AFAIK, I'm not lactose intolerant. Yes, I've even made kefir from goat's milk.

That's very cheap. There's a Fresno grass-fed dairy operation that sells raw, grass-fed milk for 4.99/quart locally. I thought that if you went paleo, you were supposed to be anti-pasteurization and anti-homogenization.

Maybe you do not have an allergy issue when it comes to dairy products. Have you tried goat's milk before?

Alright, I might just give it a try. I only do grass-fed unhomogenized milk, or raw milk. Thanks a lot for answering my question samc.

It 's not too good to be true OV makes good products but you still need to read the labels & ingredient lists. Their organic grass fed cream is not just cream.... also has carrageen. A visit to their website & some digging reveals that they are working on replacing or removing it

My work place started carrying this brand's organic half-and half (didn't specify grassfed), I normally don't have a good reaction to cow casein (causes acid reflux at night as a delayed reaction). I didn't get that issue, but noticed body acne instead.

Not sure what to think of it, perhaps dairy and I just don't get along, or perhaps it's not all it's cracked up to be.

I just happened to buy some today for my kefir making. Why wouldn't it be true? It seems that they announced it nationally 8/12/13.
