Shopping for milk and other dairy products from grassfed cows is a little like the Wild West. There are a wide variety of products with a range of labels, and little oversight from the government. It’s possible that the cows that produced your milk may have roamed on grass and eaten silage, hay, and other forms of dried grass in the wintertime. Or their feed may be supplemented with grain in a so-called grassfed operation.
The federal government is in the process of revamping Canada’s food labelling system, but the new labels won’t state whether a particular product contains genetically modified ingredients. On Dec. 1, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) kicked off its third phase of public consultations to gather the thoughts and concerns of Canadians in an effort to improve food labelling.
