'Locally Grown' May Mean Healthier, But Not Always
Date:8/6/2010

e chickens were given antibiotics or hormones, Giancoli said.

Locally grown dairy products may not differ a great deal in terms of nutritional value, Blatner said, but people may find that the milk coming from their local dairy tastes much fresher and stays fresh longer than supermarket milk shipped in from far away.

"Part of the shelf life you're missing out on was in the truck rather than at your home," she said.

But the two dietitians also warned that people should not get hung up on the question of whether their food is locally grown. A healthy diet that contains plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lentils should be a person's first focus, before they start worrying about where their food comes from.

"The most important thing is that you choose healthy foods," Blatner said. "And, once you're doing that, wouldn't it be nice to have your food come from a local source?"
