Raw, Non-Homogenized Jersey Milk
What makes raw milk so special?
Unlike ultra-high-temperature (UHT) pasteurized milk, raw milk is considered a living food, full of digestion-enhancing enzymes. Several of milk's natural components including beneficial bacteria, food enzymes, natural vitamins, and immunoglobulins are heat sensitive. Thus, many important heat sensitive components of raw milk are destroyed by the process of pasteurization. The destruction of naturally-occurring lactase enzymes lead to undigested milk sugar (lactose), which can cause digestive distress. Additionally, an enzyme in the butterfat called lipase aids in fat digestion and assimilation of the fat-soluble vitamins. Due to the bioavailability of raw milk components, digestibility has been shown to be higher when compared to pasteurized milk.
