The Benefits of Whole Milk
August 7, 2016
There are many unique benefits of whole milk, which is why we use it in our all of our baby formula. We did a little research and found out exactly why it contains so many nutritional values, and why it makes us different.
Calcium is vital in the development of your baby’s teeth and bones, and whole milk is packed full of it! It’s full of naturally occurring fats that reduce the formation of mineral complexes and help the absorption of calcium.
Your baby needs natural fats to grow and develop. However, most baby formula brands add vegetable oil as an alternative to reach the required fat content. These oils are still essential fatty acids but they can be hard for your baby to digest in such quantities.
Skimmed milk contains only a mere 1% of fat whereas whole milk contains a much more substantial 26%. Because of this, whole milk formulas don’t require high quantities of vegetable oil, which makes it much easier for your little one to digest.
Here at Castlemil, we source our milk from free range, grass-grazing dairy cows. Our cows are free to roam in the heart of the British Lake District and we work closely with our local dairies to ensure the best quality whole milk is used in all our formulas.
