Qualities Of Guernsey Milk
Our milk also has a much higher butterfat and protein content, which produces greater tasting milk, yogurt, butter, cheese, ice cream and keifer.
The unique qualities of Guernsey milk, especially flavor, have always been highly sought due to recognized health benefits. In fact, the unique golden color of Guernsey
milk comes from an unusually high content of beta carotene.
Guernsey milk is richer in both proteins and flavor than other milk products, including pasteurized white milk. When you drink Guernsey milk, you get:
12% more protein
33% more vitamin D
25% more vitamin A
30% more cream
15% more calcium
The Cancer Foundation of America recently published a study that shows beta carotene, along with vitamins A and C, may reduce the risk of cancer. Also, 96% of Guernsey cows carry the protein Beta Casein A2 in their milk, which may lead to better health in the consumers than the Beta Casein A1 protein in most other milks.
Further, populations studies have shown that drinking milk with higher levels of Beta Casein A2 have reduced the number of unhealthy medical conditions, such as heart disease, autism and childhood diabetes.
