OK, before you read this you should know I’ve researched this topic since 1997 and believe truth in labeling is one of the most important issues for consumers. People can choose the products they want, however they should know what they’re buying. It’s been my experience that companies not using controversial ingredients will tell you, usually right on the package (i.e. GMO free), while companies using controversial ingredients most likely won’t tell you.

So read on my friends and learn about rBGH, an ingredient that you may not know you’re consuming.
