If you drink organic milk, do you eat organic ice cream?
Many people realize that it makes sense to carry organic through to other dairy products.
According to the Standards of Identity in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, ice cream must contain at least 10% milk fat, and at least 20% total milk solids [source].
That’s why, since 2004, Alden Organics has been making ice cream from organic milk and cream, which comes from family farms.
All of Alden’s Organic products are certified Organic to United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Organic Program standards.
In addition to organic certification, the products are certified kosher by OK Kosher, and have:
The line is extensive: everything an ice cream lover could desire:
There are the classics: Chocolate, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Cookies & Cream, Mint Chip, Strawberry, Vanilla, Vanilla Chocolate Swirl.
There are the moderns: Coffee Chip, Cookie Dough Fudge, Midnight Cherry Chip, Moose Tracks Ooey Gooey Brownie, Peanut Butter Fudge, Salted Caramel and seasonal specialties (now it’s Pumpkin Spice).
Our fantasy: to be locked in the factory overnight with a spoon!
Until then, we’ll have to rely on the store locator.

More consumers are looking for dairy-free options, whether for dairy allergy, kosher diet, vegan diet, or other consideration.

Dairy-free flavors include: Caramel Almond Crunch, Double Strawberry, Muddie Brownie, Peanut Butter Chip, among others.
Many people switched to organic milk when they became aware that conventional milk contains growth hormones (rBST, rBGH) and antibiotics.
Others switched for animal welfare.
“Organic” cows have ready and easy access to the outdoors, including shade, clean water, fresh air and direct sunlight.
They enjoy decent shelter, clean and dry bedding, a nutritionally balanced diet, and plenty of space for comfort and exercise.
Their feed and bedding are also organically certified.
This is not typically true with cows who provide “conventional” milk. Here’s more about it.
