Why Choose Raw Milk?

Raw milk is unpasteurised, un-homogenised and full cream, it is not treated with heat and it is retained as a safe living food; preserving the milks beneficial bacteria, food enzymes, natural vitamins and immunoglobulins (antibodies supporting the immune system).

These health promoting components of natural raw milk are destroyed when heated (such as when pasteurised) and while heating milk does not change the mineral compositions it does change the bio-availability of the milk rendering the calcium less absorbent and a poor source of calcium.

Raw Milk has Naturally Occuring Food Enzymes

Raw milk is full of naturally occurring food enzymes; there are 60 known fully intact and functional enzymes; lactase, lipase and phosphatase, to name a few and each of these enzymes are essential in facilitating one key reaction or another.

Some are naturally occurring in milk and others come from beneficial bacteria growing in the milk. These enzymes help your body better digest milk and better metabolize its vital nutrients. Without these enzymes, the milks natural sugars, fats and proteins can cause food intolerance in susceptible individuals.

Enzymes like phosphatase helps to facilitate the bioavailability of calcium, and amylase and lactase, help to digest the sugars present in milk. Other enzymes such as lactoperoxidase, catalase and lysozyme offer antimicrobial properties that destroy potential pathogens in the body.

Because these enzymes are immensely delicate and very heat sensitive, pasteurising milk destroys them and their benefits for you. For these reasons people who are intolerant to pasteurised dairy can often consume raw milk quite happily.

Raw Milk is Rich with Vital Vitamins

'Raw milk' means the butterfat is retained, which is a rich natural source of fat-soluble vitamins; in particular vitamin A, vitamin K2 and vitamin E. It is also rich in water-soluble vitamins; vitamin C and B complex in particular B6 and B12. This is important as vitamin C is completely destroyed in pasteurised milk.
