Hi noelle77, rBGH is synthetic. The "r" stands for "recombinant," which refers to the way it's manufactured, by splicing cow DNA into E. coli bacteria and cultivating the bacteria. You can read more about it on these pages: http://articles.animalconcerns.org/ar-voices/archive/milk_musings.html http://www.vpirg.org/campaigns/geneticEngineering/rBGHintro.html If you need any more information about this, please feel free to ask for a clarification. --efn
