Australian company has developed a safe way for people to drink untreated milk, without resorting to the use of heat pasteurisation or homogenisation, which can deplete milk’s natural nutrients.
The NSW Food Authority has approved the method developed by Sydney company Made By Cow.
Untreated milk , or raw milk, is usually heated to at least 72 degrees to destroy harmful bacteria. It is also often subjected to separation, homogenisation, recombining and standardisation, before finally being bottled and sold on shelf in supermarkets.
Made By Cow’s new patented breakthrough method focuses on careful herd management and more hygienic milking practices from a single Jersey Herd on NSW’s South Coast, to produce higher quality milk. This is then bottled straight from the cow within hours and put under intense water pressure, compressing both the bottle and milk inside for several minutes. This pressure eliminates any remaining harmful bacteria, whilst being gentler on milk’s natural nutrients.
Made By Cow founder Saxon Joye said “Other than our dairy farmers, our grandparents were probably the last people to taste milk the way it’s supposed to be, without heat pasteurisation, homogenisation and all the other processes that go into making standardised milk.
“We’ve developed a revolutionary new method, that allows people to drink delicious, creamy and wholesome, cold pressed raw milk the way it’s supposed to be. Our milk contains more of milk’s natural goodness whilst still being 100 per cent safe from harmful bacteria, and we’re paying our farmers over 50 per cent more per litre than the major processors.”
Made By Cow will be available at all Harris Farm Markets, About Life stores and other fine food stockists starting today.
