While we do pasteurize our milk, we do not homogenize it because the process changes the fat molecules from their natural state, preventing them from separating as they naturally would. The homogenization process, which disperses the fat molecules evenly throughout the milk, can make it more difficult for our bodies to recognize and properly assimilate these beneficial fats.
In grassfed milk, health-promoting omega-3 fatty acids, CLA, beta-carotene, and vitamins A and D are found in the fat or cream. For this reason, our products contain primarily whole milk, so that our bodies can make the best use of the rich nutrients found in our milk. We also use vat pasteurization that is a gentler method intended to protect the beneficial fats and enzymes naturally present in the milk. Our full-fat products provide full nutrition and full flavor!
