    Milk clearly has some amazing benefits. In fact, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans identified calcium, potassium, magnesium and vitamin A as “nutrients of concern” and have recommend that we all drink three glasses of low fat milk daily.

    I read recently that none of your milk contains growth hormones, but it wasn’t from Aldi, and I can’t find the answer on your site. Could you please confirm whether this is true or not?

    Thank you!

      Yes, there are other discount stores also, but generally I find you really have to watch the quality – especially with meats.

    The Aldi whole milk we have been buying, upon opening a new jug, has clotting at the beginning of the pouring. It is very unappetizing and is a hit or miss thing well within the expiration date. I have never seen this with any other brand of jug milk. Why is this happening? Are the expiration dates accurate?
