Homogenized Milk

Q: Do you use homogenized milk?

A: Yes. Milk is homogenized to make the fat content standardized. Otherwise, milk processors would be in violation of labeling laws due to the fluctuating fat content over the course of the year and across different breeds of cattle. Typical processing removes all the fat from the milk and adds it back in at a specific level depending on the desired fat content. Then the milk is homogenized (passed through a fine screen mesh) to keep the fat from separating out again on the shelf. The leftover fat is sold as butter.

Environmentally Sustainable Packaging

Q: Is there a way to make your packaging more environmentally sustainable?

A: The glass, plastic sleeve label and lid are all recyclable. The glass contains some recycled material and the label is made from 100% recycled plastic. We are required to use a plastic lid with a styro insert as there is currently no other type of lid (metal for example) available from a certified grade A manufacturer (the packaging has to be certified grade A as well as the milk).

A paper label, at first glance, appears more natural than the one we currently use. However, printed paper must be coated with several layers of plastic to stand up to condensation and the moisture in refrigerated cases. Plain paper is fine for dry goods but won’t work on refrigerated or frozen items. We are conscientious about keeping our packaging as environmentally sustainable as possible within the limitations of the various laws governing our industry and the aesthetic needs of our retailers.

“Customer For Life!”

I just stumbled upon your Bulgarian yogurt and was taken back to my childhood! Growing up in Italy, yogurt was always plain and a bit sour, nothing like the over-sugared chemical-tasting food most people called yogurt in the U.S.! Thank you so much White Mountain for making the real thing! I will be a customer for Life! - Claudia
