What is the difference between Homogenized & Un-Homogenized Milk?
The answer is simple but the taste is something else!
Homogenization is a process the milk goes through that affects the cream particles in the milk.
Homogenized means the cream is mixed into the milk while un-homogenized means the cream is not mixed in, giving you that old fashioned taste with the cream on top.
The fat and cream content between Homogenized and Un-Homogenized milk does not change as the cream is not removed. It just visually appears different.
Permeate Free - Our milk does not contain Permeate
Unlike many other milk companies, we do not dilute our milk with Permeate.
Permeate is a watery by-product of milk processing which is much cheaper than whole milk. Some companies add this product into bulk manufacturing to establish consistency in mass produced milk.
Fresh from the farmer to the consumer, Fleurieu Milk Company products are Permeate Free!
Treatment of our Animals
The treatment of all animals is important to the Fleurieu Milk & Yoghurt Company.
Farms that produce milk for our products are stud farms with all of our heifer calves being reared along with a percentage of our bulls as service sires in other herds. Unfortunately the remainder of bull calves are sold to the abattoirs in accordance with Dairy Authority Australia Guidelines.
The abattoir, located at Normanville, is within 15 minutes of our farms.
As these calves are our future milking cows it is in our best interest to treat the animals as well as possible.
