New review finds that organic milk has a lower iodine concentration

A study published today has reviewed the evidence for the nutritional difference between organic and non-organic milk. It found that the iodine concentration was lower in organic milk; non-organic milk was 74% higher in iodine.

There has been a lot of media coverage of the study but it has focussed on the the higher omega-3 fatty content of organic milk and very little attention has been given to the lower iodine concentration in organic milk. For a full review of the implications of the finding, read our blog.
