Dairy concerns in new food guideJanuary 23, 2019 12:30pm
The Dairy Farmers of Canada say they remained concerned that the new Canada Food Guide does not reflect the most recent scientific evidence avaiable.
In a release, DFC says milk products continue to play a valuable role in helping Canadians make healthy eating choices on a daily basis.
Dairy Farmers of Canada Health Education Manager Lee Finell says consumers need to be aware that there is still a lot to like when it comes to dairy in your diet.
DFC noted Health Canada’s own 2015 evidence review showed that, when it comes to reducting disease, type 2 diabetes and colorectal cancer, the evidence for milk is as strong, if not stronger, than it is for vegetables, fruit and plant-based protein foods.
