Abstract The organic market is growing, and confidence is key. However, it is hard to distinguish an organic product from another regular product. In this article we examined a consumer NIRS-Vis device for its capabilities to distinguish organic retail milks from conventional milks. The study revealed differences between the two groups, allowing classification of samples, but these differences were not as distinct as those provided by other devices examined previously. Nevertheless, with some improvement of performance of this kind of devices and integration in smart phones, authentication of foods is within reach of citizens in the near future.
