My Review – Sunnyside Farms 1% Organic Milk Vitamins A&D is a nice organic milk.  There is nothing outstandingly good or bad about this organic milk.  I would be happy with it anytime but it does not quite have the creamy taste of some of the other organic milks out there.  Overall satisfying and a good choice. Special Comments on the Label – Grass Pasturing is Best!  All Sunnyside farms organic milk comes from California grass-fed cows – pastured whenever weather permits.  We believe this is the best possible management for the health of the cows, soil, precious natural resources, and milk quality.  Milk from grazed cows can contain up to 500% more Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) than milk from confined cows, according to research by the University of Wisconsin.  Rated “Excellent” by the Cornucopia Institute.

I wanted to know if Vitamin A Palmitate or Vitamin D3 come from animal sources.

Can someone find this answer?

I really liked your review. Thank you for taking the time to include the information on the label. I think it’s important that they state a specific difference between milk from confined cows fed with grain and corn as opposed to cows that grace on grassland and eat grass. There are many articles out there that state that there is no significant difference between them but it is illogical, there has to be a difference between the milk from a mistreated animal pumped with hormones, antibiotics and fed with food that contains pesticides and milk from an animal that is happier, eats a better diet, exercises, and it’s not confined and has exposure to sunlight. The difference of 500% more Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is SIGNIFICANT, and directly proportional to the level of cruelty of keeping an animal in captivity without room to move for about 4 years or when the leg muscles become so small they can’t stand … and are dragged away.. etc. .etc. 🙁 I buy organic or soy or other options. What’s Conjugated Linoleic Acid 🙂 I don’t know what it is ha ha! ” Oh, great ! the cow eats grass and it’s free to walk around on grass land! I buy it! as long as the cow is happy!” that’s what I think, it’s enough for me, better quality milk.

Thank you so much for your input. I agree with you totally! I think the less stressed the animal is the healthier the milk.

Saw that Sunnyside now has a lactose free milk product. I hope that soon Sunnyside can produce a lactose free cottage cheese. I would like to have cottage cheese once again, but now I am lactose intolerant.

Also only saw the larger carton of the lactose free product. Is there a smaller size, seeing that I don’t use milk that often.

Thanks, Barbara Kellem
