I drink organic. This wouldn’t effect organic milk, would it?

@jpalm13:  This is exactly why we only drink almond milk in my house! Unsweetened!

I don’t agree they should be adding it to dairy products, but I think it’s a stretch to say they’re hiding it.  It’s not like they’re putting it in and not telling anyone.  Sure, it won’t be on the label,  but lots of trace amounts of things in products aren’t required to be on the label.  Hell, you can put 0% transfat on a label if it falls below a certain amount – that’s definitely misleading, too!

Ew. Why?!

I’ll be the first person to admit that I’m not super health-conscious, so the thing that would bug me the most is the TASTE. I know some people who say you can’t taste it, but I SWEAR it has the most disgusting after-taste ever.

Wait, after reading more carefully…

IDFA and NMPF request their proposed amendments to the milk standard of identity to allow optional characterizing flavoring ingredients used in milk (e.g., chocolate flavoring added to milk) to be sweetened with any safe and suitable sweetener — including non-nutritive sweeteners such as aspartame.”

So basically this would only apply to flavored milks? Chocolate, banana, strawberry, etc?

Whatever, I think flavored milks are kind of disgusting anyway. If I want chocolate milk I’ll make my own at home.

Still though, ew.

@jpalm13:  I suppose… I’m sure it will only be a matter of time before it does…

I wonder though, is this for ALL milk products? Or, will they simply be creating new products, while still offering the old stuff without aspartame?  A Huff Post article makes it seems like they’re trying to diversify and remain competitive with other products and not using aspartame to cut production costs, etc.

Will be interesting to see.

@arabbel:  It shouldn’t. Aspartame is artificial, and the USDA standards for organics are very stringent. I’m pretty sure this is only for flavored milks, though, not regular ones.

@rachelmichelle:  No, I’m with you. I can ALWAYS tell if there’s artificial sweetener in something. I won’t eat Yoplait anymore because of that.

i hope it’s only flavored milk! i drink a ton of milk (regular, not flavored) so i will be pissed if they put it in regular milk. i can’t see why they would though. it doesn’t make sense. i know milk has sugar in it but i thought it was a naturally occurring thing and not an additive. i can’t stand fake sweeteners. i won’t eat anything that doesn’t use real sugar.
