Horizon’s new Fat Free DHA Omega-3 Milk Review & Giveaway

We drink a lot of milk. Actually our family consumes a lot of dairy. We love it for snacks and dairy is always a part of our meals. Horizon is making organic milk even healthier for your family by adding Fat-Free Milk plus DHA Omega-3 to their product line which offers lower fat and calorie content than their other DHA Omega-3 milks. And they’re the only company offering DHA Omega-3 in fat-free milk!

clip_image002DHA Omega-3 is not only good for brain health but for your heart and eyes too. People most commonly think of DHA Omega-3 in fish or fish oil supplements. The benefit to getting DHA Omega-3 via milk versus fish or supplements is you can get your kids to actually drink it. Eating fish isn’t hard for some kids. My youngest isn’t picky but my oldest won’t eat fish. And supplements can be hard for children as the oil can taste bad or coat the mouth (as it is an oil – this doesn’t hurt but it might feel funny to children turning them off of the supplement), and gelatin tablets are hard to swallow for young children. However, the DHA Omega-3 found in Horizon’s milk is actually not fish; it’s a vegetarian and sustainable source of plant-based DHA from Martek Biosciences Corpations. This is the same type of gentle, flavorless DHA Omega-3 used in infant formulas. This special DHA Omega-3 doesn’t flavor the milk, so you are still getting the pure taste of Horizon’s high quality organic milk.

Founded in 1991, Horizon is THE pioneer of nationally offered organic milk. Since 2007, Horizon has offered whole and reduced-fat versions for their DHA Omega-3 line. In 2010, they added to the line with a chocolate milk option. This new fat-free opinion just came out in February. If your local store carries Horizon organic products but is not yet offering the DHA line or the Fat-Free DHA Omega-3 opinion, ask them to begin carrying it. Stores love filling requests to keep their customers happy; so if your store doesn’t offer Horizon, you can request that too. Horizon offers not only organic milk, but organic yogurt, cheese, cream, butter, eggs, cottage cheese, cream cheese, and sour cream.

We love Horizon products. My sons like their milk boxes which are a staple at birthday parties. They enjoy their string cheese and cottage cheese. It was no surprise to me that they would enjoy Horizon’s DHA Omega-3 line. It is true that the only taste is the milk itself and the texture hasn’t seemed to change either. I feel good knowing I’m giving my family a little boost using Horizon’s organic milk with DHA plus Omega-3 over just plain old milk. You can not only drink it, but cooking with the enhanced milk would also offer your family and friends so extra benefits, like in bread pudding.

Using Horizon your milk is still local using 600 family farmers to supply their organic products. The cows are certified organic and their product lines use simple ingredients without antibiotics, added growth hormones or pesticides. They are also making green efforts by using wind power to manufacture their products.

Check out Horizon on their site where you can find all sorts of information on their products they offer. They also have Horizon Organic recipes for some fresh ideas in the kitchen. You can also stay updated through Horizon on Facebook and by tracking them on Twitter @HorizonDairy.
