Frequently Asked Questions
Nope, that’s nature’s job! Our milk contains lactose, a natural sugar found in milk.
In addition to calcium and vitamin D, you’ll also find vitamin A in milk.
Our skim, 1%, and 2% milk contain no less than 1,200 IUs of vitamin A per litre, which works out to 10% of our daily intake per 250mL serving. We don’t add any to our 3.25% homogenized milk because it’s got enough vitamin A as is.
Great question. All of our milk has no less than 300 international units of vitamin D per litre. That means with every 250 mL serving, you’ll get 45% of the recommended daily amount, which helps build strong bones and teeth.
Feel free to enjoy our milk, chocolate milk, butter, sour cream, cottage cheese, eggnog, cream, whipping cream, and buttermilk without any gluten, because all of our products are gluten free. However, always be sure to check the ingredient list for any potential allergens.
It’s actually quite simple. For maximum freshness and enjoyment, it’s best to keep milk as cool as possible — ideally between 0° and 4° Celsius. If your trip home from the grocery store takes a while, that’s ok. Just make sure you bring an insulated cooler with you to be on the safe side. In your fridge, make sure your milk is kept on the shelves to avoid temperature variation, which can affect the shelf life.
And one more thing — be sure to keep all your dairy products away from strong-smelling foods.
Baxter Regular Egg Nog can be found on shelves in the few weeks leading up to Easter, while both Regular and Light Egg Nog are available for Thanksgiving.
Quite a bit. Each glass of milk provides you with 30% of the daily value of calcium, so, 3-4 250 mL glasses of milk a day should get you to 100% of the daily value.
Absolutely! A glass of chocolate milk provides 3 essential nutrients. You might also be surprised to learn that compared to an equal serving of most unsweetened fruit juices, Baxter chocolate milk contains the same amount of sugar.
It’s basically a fancy word for breaking milk fats into very, very small particles. This keeps the fat evenly distributed, ensuring a smooth and delicious glass of milk with every pour.
Pasteurization is the heating of a product at a specific time and temperature sufficient to destroy certain microorganisms which may cause illness or product spoilage, without radically altering the taste or quality.
The quantity of calcium, protein, riboflavin or vitamin A in our milk stays the same.
Glad you asked! All milk contains a certain amount of fat. These percentages just reflect how much is actually in the milk. The higher the percentage, the more fat per serving. If you’d like a little more detail on the fat content in our milk, have a look below:
Skim milk has less than 0.3% fat or less than 0.3g of fat per 100g of milk
1% partly skimmed milk has 1g of fat per 100g of milk
2% partly skimmed milk has 2g of fat per 100g of milk
Homogenized milk has 3.25g of fat per 100g of milk
Skim milk contains all the same nutrients as other milk. And the best part? Skim milk contains less fat than an equivalent serving of partly skimmed milk or homogenized milk. In fact, 250 mL of our skim milk has 0.3 g of fat and 90 calories, making it a pretty guilt-free (and delicious) snack.
This is a reminder of how long your unopened dairy will keep its fresh and quality taste, as well as its nutritional value in the fridge, provided it’s stored between 0° and 4° Celsius.
No one likes it when milk goes sour. But when it does, this could be because it’s been stored improperly. Just be sure to keep it between 0° and 4° Celsius at all times — simple as that!
We don’t really recommend it, but milk can survive in your freezer for up to three whole months if its frozen before the best before date. After thawing, you might see a bit of separation between the fluid and the fat, but that’s normal — just mix it well and enjoy.
Did you know that you can also freeze unopened egg nog for up to two months if it’s frozen before its best before date? But be sure not to freeze cream, artificially soured sour cream and cottage cheese because it can affect the texture.
