There’s FISH in my Milk!

So here I am trying my very best to make good decisions for my Vegetarian family. Buying healthy and of course vegetarian food.

You have no idea how shocked and disgusted we were to find out (after drinking two half gallons) that I Organic, Animal Welfare Certified cows milk had FISH in it. Technically fish oil, but fish were still killed and pressed for their oils.milk ingredients


Typically I buy non-dairy milk but this ONE time while at Costco I decided to buy cows milk because:

1. The soy milk had Carrageenan

2. The cows milk said Animal Welfare Certified.  I felt like the cows were at least treated better than typical dairy cows.Animal Welfare Certified Milk

Isn’t it ironic how they “value”  treatment of cows enough to claim they care about there welfare… yet they kill fish and squeeze them for oil to add to this milk??

Animal welfare certified

I never thought that milk could NOT be vegetarian. I am constantly reading labels to make sure there are no unnecessary additives but who knew that fish would be one of those additives. CRAZY!

With that said, always always read labels and never assume  {ASS-U-ME} 😉 that something meets your dietary standards no matter what they are!

I think I may just make Almond milk at home from now on!

What crap have you found in your food!?

    I found your blog at Top Mommy Blogs because I’m on a search for other mommy type bloggers who also write partly on vegetarianism. Happy to found your site because it’s kind of similar to my style– not solely mommy- not solely food and other topics as well! 🙂

    I have a question. Why didn’t you want to buy soy milk because of the carrageenan? I thought that was the vegetarian/vegan substitute for gelatin?

      Hi! yes my blog is really about whatever is on my mind at any given moment :). As for carrageenan… It is actually a carcinogen. Yes just one more thing for me to watch out for. Check out this article on Food Babes site.
