Our milk is very special. Milk is the epitome of healthy food. Milk can cure all ailments and help you to forget all of your worries. Milk with honey helps fight sore throats and is a sleeping aid. Drinking milk at school makes students cheerful and helps them learn. Children drink milk to grow big and strong, and milk with chocolate or a biscuit can make your pains and worries disappear.

Milk is a food product
Milk is a high-quality and valuable food product, though it is not suitable for satisfying all of the fluid intake needs of humans. As with all foods, it does the body good when consumed in moderation. Too much or too little can hurt it. Certain dairy opponents have been quick to emphasize the consequences of improper milk consumption, so they try to degrade the image of milk. However, the positive properties of the drink cannot be refuted.
Infants should drink about 300 millilitres of milk per day. Adolescents between the ages of 13 and 19 should drink about 500 millilitres of milk per day. The high calcium content of milk helps children develop strong bones when combined with exercise. Adults should consume about 300 to 400 millilitres per day.

Why milk is healthy
Cow’s milk contains an optimal composition of all of the essential nutrients that a child needs to grow and flourish. Milk contains high-quality protein and supplies the body with Vitamin A and various sources of Vitamin B, which help the body extract energy from food. Milk also contains a lot of calcium, which is important for bones and teeth and prevents osteoporosis. The phosphorus in milk is also important for bone growth and maintenance. Zinc, among other things, is responsible for the development of many enzymes.
Due to the high concentration of vital substances, milk may also help to reduce the risk of gout. Milk drinkers also suffer less from allergies and diabetes mellitus type 2. The “white gold” also contains bioactive substances such as orotic acid, which strengthens the heart and reduces the risk of hypertension and heart attack.
In addition, nutritionists are able to attribute positive properties to the conjugated linoleic acids contained in milk: they inhibit the growth of tumour cells, prevent thrombosis and atherosclerosis, and optimize fat and blood sugar metabolism. Milk is by no means a fattening food.


Milk produced by happy cows
Milk produced by happy cows is the best and healthiest milk. If cows are left to pasture in an area where they can feed on fresh grass and clover and drink mountain spring water, they will give milk of the highest quality.
Our farmers stand for 100% GMO-free milk. In the summer our cows graze in meadows and pastures. In the winter we feed them primarily hay from our own meadows. The additional feed that we purchase is also 100% GMO-free.

Lactose-free milk
Lactose-free milk is basically a special kind of milk. Nothing is removed from lactose-free milk, but the enzyme lactase is added. Lactase breaks up the lactose, thereby making the milk easily digestible. Lactose-free milk has a lactose content of less than 0.01%.
Lactose-free products were developed for people who cannot digest lactose because they either lack the enzyme lactase or do not have a sufficient amount of it. Lactose-free products offer no advantage for people without lactose intolerance. On the contrary, they may possibly make it harder for you to digest milk in the future.

An alternative to cow’s milk
Those looking for an alternative to cow’s milk should consider goat’s milk. Goat’s milk, which is rich in vitamins and minerals, is a healthy alternative to cow’s milk. Sheep’s milk is another option to investigate. Drinks made from oats, spelt, rice, soy, almonds and hazelnuts have nothing to do with milk and therefore aren’t allowed to be sold in the EU with the word “milk” in their name, because milk is by definition something derived from mammals.
