This is just one example of the importance of knowing where your food comes from and the farmer who produces it. Instead of going to every farm and producer on our own, our Co-op will help us to know our farmer directly and provide us food which is good for us, good for our community of citizens and farmers, and good for our planet. We have a right to know what we put in our bodies!
Health Alert- Hidden Artificial Sweeteners in Milk
The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) have filed a petition with the FDA asking the FDA to alter the definition of "milk" to secretly include chemical sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose.
Importantly, none of these additives need to be listed on the label. They will simply be swept under the definition of "milk," so that when a company lists "milk" on the label, it automatically includes aspartame or sucralose. And if you're trying to avoid aspartame, you'll have no way of doing so because it won't be listed on the label.
