Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What’s in Our Cow's Diet?

Not all grass-fed milk has the same nutritional content or flavor profile. To insure that we produce the healthiest and most flavorful milk possible, we implement a very effective nutritional grass-feeding program for our cows that produces a truly superior milk. 

 

Our program is effective because we focus on balancing the amino acid requirements of the cows. As a result, the milk produced reflects a healthier Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio - which means a more nutritious and flavorful milk.

 

The average American consumes nearly twice as many Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acids, which is considerably out of balance. With our nutritional program, cows produce milk that is much closer to a desired 1:1 ratio level of Omega 3 to Omega 6.

Is Natural By Nature Milk Pasteurized?

At Natural Dairy Products, we believe that milk, particularly organic milk, is meant to be fresh. We pasteurize our milk using the High-Temperature Short Time (HTST) process. During this process, our milk is heated to only 165 degrees F, the lowest temperature proven to safely kill harmful bacteria without sacrificing flavor, freshness and many of milk’s natural nutrients. Our milk is NOT ultra pasteurized.
