I grew up drinking a glass of milk before bedtime. It’s also the practice my boys have adapted. Thanks to my eager mom who would always reemphasize the importance of milk to one’s growth and development.
Not all milk products, though, are equal.
With all the brands in the market, it can be overwhelming and confusing to determine which ones are really good for us. Thus, I am grateful to be part of an intimate brunch prepared for moms last week. I learned a lot about what to look for when buying milk.
What to look for in your milk?
Moms like us give our youngsters milk because we always believe this drink provides the added calcium and protein our kids need. But did you know that calcium may not easily be absorbed with other milk brands because they contain less natural dairy? There are also milk products that are filled with additives and substitutes that simply do not deliver.
Now, let me share with you how we were taught to read the ingredients.
How to read the ingredients?
Whole milk, for instance, should be closest to its natural form. If the carton says it is from 100% fresh milk, the sole ingredient should be 100% fresh milk. A good example is Anchor milk.
Anchor milk products are produced from 100% grass-fed cows living in lush green farms. The milk underwent less filter thus the calcium is more bioavailable. This means calcium is easily absorbed by the body. Anchor milk also provides high-quality protein which has all the essential amino acids for faster growth and development. To add, Anchor milk products are naturally rich in disease-fighting antioxidants.
How to choose your milk?
In our household, we always trust the company behind the brand. Same with our milk, we always opt for the brand trusted by experts and most moms.
Throughout the years, Anchor has transformed dairy into something exciting and great that improves and nurtures the lives of Filipinos for over two decades. It is a brand owned and produced by Fonterra, a co-operative owned by 10,500 farming families in New Zealand and the most trusted source of dairy nutrition in the world. It has been providing pure and natural dairy goodness to millions of families around the world for over 100 years.
What is our brand of milk?
My boys and I drink Anchor milk products. I love the Anchor Full Cream UHT Milk while my boys prefer the full cream milk powder. Sometimes, I serve them milk choco if they request for something chocolatey.
With Anchor, I am confident that I give my family a whole lot of love because the brand simply gives us #AWholeLotToLove.
