Some bad news for milk and soy

Marion Nestle posted this morning about Horizon Organic Milk’s new ‘natural’ line of cheaper, conventional milk and the implications for the organic milk industry.  She also mentioned, which I didn’t know, that Silk soy milk is switching from organic soybeans to ‘natural’….another blow the to the industry and for health (see post below about soy).  It’s really too bad, there are enough labeling issues as it is, and throwing in another mysterious label that does not necessary signify a major improvement or difference over conventional milk does not help.  Sounds like a cop-out from two brands that know they have a following from organic milk drinkers, and know they’ll retain most of the customers through the switche (remember, Starbuck’s uses silk soy milk and (if I remember correctly) have little Horizon milk juice boxes in their pastry case.)

Quite a shame.
