Facts About Raw Milk

The following is just a small bit of information that you might enjoy about raw milk and obtaining it or even how hard it can be to find Raw Milk.

Did you know

As we walk down the isles of the grocery store, we see people picking up a lot of dairy products.  We are all thinking that we are eating healthy by grabbing that low fat high and pasteurized milk off the store shelf.  Did you look at the wording of a lot of the pasteurized milk that we find on the shelves?  It often says  Ultra-Pasteurized.  Here is what Dr Axe says. Take a look at this  chart he has created.   As Dr Axe explains, much of the milk that we purchase in stores is Ultra or High Temperature pasteurized.  

There are very few stores in many of the states, where we can purchase raw or low temperature pasteurized milk from an actual store.  In Utah, currently, the only way a dairy farmer can sell his milk in a store off the farm is if he owns at least 51% of the sales of that store.  So in most cases in Utah, currently, that won't happen. Thus, if you and your family want to purchase raw milk, you have to pretty much go straight to the dairy farmer himself to get the good whole food milk. 

This is where we at  Northern Dawn Dairy come in to help you and your family. If your milk is going to be pasteurized, then the closest to raw milk benefits is low temperature pasteurized milk. This still denatures a lot of the good bacteria that our bodies need, but it is better than the harmful High and Ultra-Pasteurized milk.  The best milk you can get for your family, as Dr Mercola says, is  Raw Milk straight from the naturally fed dairy farms.  In Dr Axe' video, he talks about the dangers of high temperature and ultra-pasteurized milk.  Here are a few highlights.
