Dean's Milk Health Claims Draw Criticism From Scientists
Penn State nutrition professor Penny Kris-Etherton is asking milk manufactuer Dean's Foods a bigger question than "got milk?" Kris-Etherton asserts that the health claims on cartons of Dean's milk are misleading. "Got proof?" Kris-Etherton wants to know.
“It’s not right -- it’s inaccurate,” said Penny Kris- Etherton, a professor of nutrition at Penn State University, who wrote the report. “It’s really a marketing strategy to sell more of their milk.”
It’s not the first time Dean, the largest U.S. dairy processor, has drawn criticism for its advertising and health claims -- and Kris-Etherton’s objection may lead to Dean dropping the citation from its cartons.
