Lancaster Local Whole Milk Presents Benefits
Lancaster Local milk now offers whole milk that is non homogenized milk — known by some as cream line milk. The cream will rise to the top of the container as this organic milk sets. And even more healthy fat than the standardized 3.5 butter fat milk often sold as whole milk, this organic milk has never lost any of the healthy fats. Presented to you with all the fats the cows naturally produced in this milk!
Non Homogenized Healthy Fats of Cream-Line Whole Milk
Less Processing – More Natural
Don’t denature milk. Naturally milk provides such rich nutrition. But todays markets seldom offer milk in its natural state. Denatured milk places milk on the ‘Do Not Use’ list, whereas natural milk often meets a body’s needs much more effectively.
This Non homogenized milk was pasteurized (heated to temperatures the FDA requires for legal interstate milk sales). Raw milk is another subject. Non homogenized milk has no precautions associated with it for children or the elderly.
Homogenizing milk changes the molecular makeup of milk where the cream will not rise to the top. The convenience of not needing to shake your milk before each usage drove this process into extreme popularity. But what about the health complications caused by it?
Some folks feel that changing these molecules into smaller globules may lead to heart disease and other health issues. And yet some studies have been made stating these claims may not be true. However, we can know, that milk naturally holds healthy fats. Decide for yourself. Do you want those healthy fats naturally or processed?
Fresh Milk Equals more Life – Taste the Difference
Organic milk has become big business. And with the extra expense associated with it, most organic milk is sold as UHT (Ultra High Temperature) pasteurized milk. Sadly the process has killed all of the life of the milk. And because of this sterilization, the milk will not spoil for many weeks and months; even up to several years and still unspoiled! But once you open the milk it will likely spoil in 7 to 10 days; an even quicker spoiling than fresh pasteurized milk! And some say that it will only keep for up to 3 days.
While raw milk holds many natural healthful enzymes that aid in digestion and even some that fight harmful bacteria, it is possible for it to have harmful bad bacteria. (This presents another reason to purchase milk from 100% grass fed cows as they have less health issues.) And so the FDA regulates the milk pasteurization.
Meeting the minimum requirements for pasteurization can allow a certain amount of the healthful bacteria to remain in the milk. But with the UHT (Ultra High Temperature) pasteurization, there is essentially no life of any type of harmful or healthful bacteria. It is so dead that you cannot make yogurt from it. And it simply tastes like cooked milk, even may have a brownish color and unpleasant taste.
Such is the fate of most organic milk. Large organic dairies ship it across the continent conveniently and thus eliminate the need for local milk from small farms. And no one wants to risk losing money on it. So, it has been cooked to death. Why not try some fresher options with more life? Choose Lancaster Local milk. It is fresh and tastes excellent!
100% Grass Fed Means More—Beyond just Omega3 and CLA
The term ‘grass fed milk’ does not mean the cows only eat grass. But 100% grass fed does mean that! Some farmers pasture their cows just enough to call them grass fed but at the same time feed lots of corn, soy and other grains to promote large volumes of milk production. The use of these 2 terms often confuse shoppers as to the true value of 100% grass fed versus the term grass fed.
Dairy farmers make more money by feeding these grains along with the grasses. The cows produce 2 to 3 times more milk on this program than with only 100% grass fed diets. And yet the farmers benefit from the term grass fed at the consumer’s expense.
Grass fed milk contains more CLA and other valuable nutrients. But feeding grains with the grasses reduce the CLA from the grasses. And so if you really want to benefit from grass fed milk, choose 100% grass fed milk.
When cows only eat grasses, they live considerably much longer. Disease and health issues surface much less. The cows face much less stress while producing a more natural amount of milk as they were created to produce.
So guess what! Would such milk be more nutrient dense? Would it have better food value? Is there less chance of people getting sick from milk from 100% grass fed cows? You decide!
Do be fooled. Ask the farmer is he feeds any grains if he is just saying ‘grass fed’.
Local Milk from Small Farms Creates Sustainability
Lancaster Pennsylvania speaks of quality food. Many small farms dot the landscape. But the families on these small farms in Lancaster face some real challenges. Yes, it’s just like many small farmers who face the pressures from unrealistic low milk prices forced to them because the huge farming facilities.
A few head of livestock gains a closer attachment with the farmer whereas a farmer with a large group of animals tends to consider them much more disposable. Consequently the farmer with fewer head of livestock values them more and tends to care for them better.
And small farms create stronger communities. Interdependence on one another provides greater blessings of personal relationships. That compromises true sustainability. Then together, these relationships extend to others beyond. Help support those who support sustainability in its fullness. Choose local milk.
