Comparative Nutritional Analysis Summary for our LiLi

May 21, 2017

HTST In-Line Pasteurizer unit

Check out this Summary from the Comparative Nutritional Analysis performed on the LiLi Pasteurized Milk:

We here at Bob-White Systems, Inc. have been extremely pleased with the performance of our Low Impact Pasteurizer.  It does an excellent job of eliminating the harmful bacteria in milk, regardless of the bacteria levels found in the raw milk and it has absolutely no negative impact on the milk's flavor.  In addition, the texture of the cream and the ability to utilize the milk for yogurt, butter and other dairy products is unaltered.

There are many claims and counter claims made within the dairy community regarding the impact of pasteurization on the nutritional value of milk.  We decided it was time to understand the facts.  In June of 2010 we sent samples of our milk, both raw and pasteurized (from the same batch), to a highly accredited food lab for full nutritional analysis.  The lab tested each sample for over 50 individual nutrients.  The results were remarkable.

The only statistically relevant nutrient losses or gains in our pasteurized sample (we actually saw slight increases in vitamins D and C in our pasteurized sample) were Lactic Acid Organisms and Vitamin B-12.  The lactic acid organisms help with human digestion.  Pasteurization did cause a significant loss of this nutrient in our samples but it was not eliminated.  The loss of vitamin B-12 was approximately 50% but it still supplies 40% of a persons daily recommended allowance.  That's not a bad trade off for both dairy farmers who sell their milk directly from their farms as well as their customers.
