Make the Switch to Raw Milk Cheese?

May 24, 2021

Cheese made from raw milk is cheese made from milk that was not pastuerized, homogenized, or processed in any way. It contains no additives or preservatives. The ingredients are simple and include:

Raw milk cheese is not only considered a complete protein - that is it provieds all nine of the essential amino acids, but contains vitamins A, B, D, E, and K. Not only that, but as little as one ounce of raw milk cheese can contain up to 20% of your daily calcium requirements! Best of all, because raw milk cheese is not pastuerized or otherwise processed, these vitamins and minerals remain in their natural state.

While pastuerizing is intended to kill the bad bacteria that can make one sick, pastuerizing also kills the good bacteria which can be beneficial to our digestive tracks and for gut health. Because it is not pasteurized, bacteria, protein and enzymes stay intact. But don't worry - raw milk cheeses are tested for harmful bacterias including E. Coli, listeria, and salmonella to be certain that they are safe.

Raw milk cheeses are aged for a minimum of 60 days without additives or preservatives. The flavor remains true and is even stronger!

The enzymes in raw milk help in the digestion of the sugars, fats and minerals in the milk, according to a research report published in the July 2008 edition of the journal "Appetite." Pasteurization destroys these enzymes and makes it difficult to digest milk, thereby leading to lactose intolerance which can lead to abdominal bloating, diarrhea and cramps.

Reports suggest that the consumption of raw milk and cheeses can help alleviate symptoms of allergic reactions such as asthma, hay fever and eczema.

The Sunday Times of London, England, reported in 2007 that raw milk contains 10 percent more B vitamins and 25 percent more vitamin C. The heat used during pasteurization may destroy these nutrients along with the flavor and color of the real milk. Thus, cheese made from raw milk may be more nutritious than cheese made from processed milk.
