Silk Brand Soy Milk not Organic

Dean food company switched there ‘Silk’ soy milk to non-organic soybeans and thought no one would notice. They changed the label recently and said same product, new label. I believed them.

But they lied. They changed the label to Natural from Organic because they had to. They no longer buy organic soy beans. They still charge the same as if it was organic. They didn’t even change the bar code so many grocery store owners still believed it to be organic. 

Labeling deception

Dean Foods is one of the big food giants that serves processed, factory-made foods and beverages to the American people. It’s the parent company of Horizon Organic, the so-called “organic” milk maker that’s been caught up in a web of deception exposed by the Organic Consumers Association (…).

Do you try to buy organic?

If you don’t buy all organic are there a few products you try to make sure they are organic?

 If so then which ones and why?

  1. I buy lots of organic (marked) produce at Harris Teeter, I buy Horizon milk sometimes Teeter’s brand Organic products are they up and up?

    • I believe they are because they can put Organic on the label. They took the words ‘organic’ off of the Silk Milk because they no longer bought organic soy beans. They did start out using organic. Don’t know why they switched. Was it to get us all addicted to the creamy sweet taste and then think no one would notice? I am not sure.

  2. I have been drinking the Eden chocolate soy milk which I like because I know it is organic. I doesn’t have that silky flow that Silk chocolate has. I wonder if Silk was more processed to achieve that or was it more sugar. Not sure.

Would love to hear your thoughts connected to this post.
