All about

our milk

Don’t settle for anything but the freshest !

  • OUR FRESH MILK IS FARMED DAILY,

    under stringent controls in Guangdong, then homogenized and pasteurized at our own Tuen Mun production plant. From there our freshly made products are delivered by our refrigerated trucks straight on to the refrigerated shelves at your local supermarket and store every day. Fresh milk contains essential carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals. Carbohydrates are our primary source of energy (glucose being the only source of energy for the brain!) and help regulate hormones. The proteins in our fresh milk products contain all nine essential amino acids. The multiple vitamins and minerals in our fresh milk products perform numerous metabolic functions. Essential fatty acids in full milk help maintain lean body mass.

    Key Fact
    • Daily raw milk collection from the farm
    • Optimum pasteurization for best nutritional value
    • 100% produced
      daily in Hong Kong
    • Daily delivery directly to your store

    FRESH MILK  vs. ESL vs. UHT

    OPTIMUM PASTEURIZATION

    High Temperature Short Time (HTST),

    Maximum 85°c

     

     

    All of Kowloon Dairy’s milks are processed through what we consider to be ‘optimum pasteurization’. What does this really mean?

     

    There are different variations of the pasteurization process, and generally three methods are used for milk:

     

    • HTST (High Temperature Short Time),
    • ESL (Extended Shelf Life, or Ultra Pasteurized), and
    • UHT (Ultra Heat Treating).

     

    Fresh Milk

    (HTST)

    Most

    Imported Milk

    (ESL / UHT)

    1 Temperature max 85°C above 138°C
    2 Nutrition retain more natural nutrients nutrients loss during heat treatment
    3 Shelf life less than 2 weeks more than 2 months
    4 Lead-time less than 2 days 1 month

     

    Of these three methods, the most widely adopted is the HTST method which allows the milk to retain its natural nutrition and taste.

     

    In the ESL and UHT processes, higher temperatures are applied in order to eliminate practically all the micro-organisms in the milk, however these higher temperature treatments also alter the nutritional content and structure of milk, and often affects the taste and texture as well.

     

    Most of the imported milk brands in Hong Kong are either Ultra Pasteurized or Ultra Heat Treated, because this gives their milks a shelf life of anywhere between one to three months for ESL milks (refrigerated), and up to six months in ambient state for UHT milks. These imported products need this extended shelf life in order to survive the time it takes for their processing and packaging, loading onto container ships, transit time to Hong Kong’s cargo terminals, off-loading to storage, and then delivery to the supermarkets and convenience stores. That’s quite a journey with lots of stops!

     

    We at Kowloon Dairy, because we are your local dairy, are fortunate to be able to provide you with the freshest milk products in Hong Kong through using only the HTST method, known as Optimum Pasteurization. This allows for our products to retain all the benefits and nutrients that you expect to get from drinking ‘fresh’ milk, and the natural flavour and taste of freshness.

    A STRONG CASE FOR CHOCOLATE MILK!

    SEVERAL STUDIES HAVE FOUND MILK –
    ESPECIALLY CHOCOLATE MILK – TO PROVIDE BENEFITS TO ATHLETES
     FOR POST-EXERCISE RECOVERY.

     

     

    Research conducted among athletes has shown that chocolate milk is a better natural source of protein, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins than artificially produced sport drinks, especially in aiding post-exercise recovery and in maintaining nutrients in the body after exertion.

     

    In one clinical study conducted by Indiana University in 2006, researchers found cyclists who drank chocolate milk could ride 49 to 54% longer than those who just drank sports drinks. In February 2009, James Madison University found that chocolate milk provided equal or even better muscle recovery in soccer players, compared to a high-carbohydrate recovery beverage. The players who drank chocolate milk were found to have significantly lower levels of creatine kinase – a muscle damage indicator – compared to when they drank the carbohydrate beverage.

     

    Researchers found cyclists who drank chocolate milk could ride 49 to 54% longer than those who just drank sports drinks.

     

    During exercises, our bodies consume glycogen stored in muscles and the liver. The carbohydrates in chocolate milk — the 4:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio in chocolate milk is said to be ideal — help to rapidly replenish our energy quickly and restore glycogen, while the proteins in chocolate milk help our bodies maintain and repair muscle tissue.

     

    Chocolate is also an excellent source of vitamin D, which helps the body absorb and use the calcium in milk, which is indispensable for bone and skeletal health and a good regulator of blood pressure as well.

     

    Chocolate milk has also been shown to quench thirst even more effectively than water! A study published in 2007 in the British Journal of Nutrition showed that milk helped to rehydrate and replenish exercisers better than water or sports drinks.
