ORGANIC MILK CONTAINS LESS DIETARY MINERALS IN SPANISH STUDY

Milk from organic farms has a lower concentration of mineral substances compared to conventionally produced milk. This is the outcome of a Spanish study published in the journal “Food and Chemical Toxicology”.

In their study, the researchers from the University of Santiago de Compostela compared the concentration of minerals and toxic substances of organic and conventional milk taken from more than 30 farms located in the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula. The results showed that milk from organic farms has a lower concentration of mineral substances such as zinc, iodine, and selenium than milk produced by conventional farming methods.

According to the researchers, this is due to the differences in the animal’s diets. In conventional livestock breeding, the animals are provided with fodder containing mineral diet supplements, while cows on organic farms depend on the mineral content available on pastures, which, in turn, depends on the mineral content in soil that may vary.

The researchers found no differences in the quantity of toxic substances in organic and conventional milk. Cadmium, for example, was detected in very low concentrations in both types of milk.
