Which label is lying?

This morning I finished one half gallon of milk and started another. The Wild Oats brand of organic nonfat milk says it has 60 calories per cup. The Horizon Organic brand says it has 90 calories per cup. They taste the same. The nutritional information (amount of protein, amout of fat, etc.) is the same, except that the Horizon brand lists a tiny amount more sodium.

What is going on with this? I don't believe they are really 30 calories per serving different.

I just looked through an extensive database of various milk products, including skim, 1%, 2%, etc. The lowest amount of calories I could find for a cup of milk was 83 calories per cup for skim (aka nonfat). I wonder if the Wild Oats brand has a typographical error, reversing a 9 to a 6. I feel your pain - I would be bummed if I thought I had to add an unfair 30 more calories to my breakfast. Or maybe the Wild Oats company has a phone number and you could call and ask?

be sure that the label is referring to an 8oz cup rather than a serving of another size...
