Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is thought to protect against cancer, cardiovascular disease and obesity. Milk is the richest dietary source of CLA, but typical intakes may be too low for these beneficial effects to be seen. The amount of CLA in milk and dairy foods can be influenced by feeding practices, with grass-fed cows producing 300–500% more CLA than those that are grain fed. More research is needed before the beneficial effects of CLA in milk can be linked to dietary consumption.
