PediaSmart® Dairy is nutritionally comparable to the leading brand PediaSure®; however, it provides complete organic nutrition. PediaSmart® Dairy contains only natural and organic flavors with no artificial colors or sweeteners, genetically modified ingredients, pesticides, added growth hormones or hexane processed oils. Nature’s One® purchases its organic milk protein concentrate from farmer-owned cooperatives where cows are fed only organic grains and grasses from organic pastures.
A study from the United Kingdom, soon to be published, reports on the benefits of consuming organic foods.1 Of particular interest is the finding that organic milk can contain up to 60% more antioxidants than found in conventionally produced milk. Antioxidants are molecules that help to prevent damage to the body’s cells. Examples of antioxidants are Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
