From organic to whole milk to non-homogenized, there is a variety of types of milk for everyone. It’s not a one size fits all, so our farms and processors are happy to accommodate your palate, budget and values. However, it’s you that has to decide what’s best for you.
Here are some tips:
- It’s important to really understand the differences between organic and conventional milk. From a nutritional perspective they are the same.
- Most milk in Canada is homogenized milk. Homogenization is just a process to emulsify the butterfat so that the cream does not separate. There are some niche market milks that are not homogenized but for most of us homogenization just ensures that the taste and texture of the milk is the same with every glass.
- Taste test. Some people are sensitive to the differences even between brands. The only way you’ll know is if you try.
- Do some shopping! Different retail outlets may have different brands and varieties. Look and all that is out there to be sure that you’re getting what you want.
But know this: all varieties, all quantities, all areas meet the same quality standards. What ever you chose is safe, high quality milk coming from Canada that supports farm families from coast to coast. Don’t know how to tell if it’s Canadian? Look for the Canadian Milk Quality logo.
