We firmly believe that Dairy produce should have a key role in a modern, balanced diet. After all, our ancestors have relied on this key food and drink source for thousands of years.

Dairy is a source of calcium and Vitamin D as well as protein and other essential nutrients which provide phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and Vitamins A & B12 too.

A recent study also found that people who had more than 2 servings of dairy products a day have a reduced risk of heart disease and strokes.

Here are some of the health benefits of Dairy, in a balanced diet:

Digestive health

Fermented dairy products such as yoghurt, culture drinks and kefir are some of the most common and easily available sources of probiotics. Probiotics are great! They help us maintain a natural balance in our digestive system.

Bone Health and Structure

Key ingredients for maintaining strong bones for life include weight-bearing exercise, vitamin D from safe sun exposure and yes, the part we like best – calcium-rich foods such as milk, cheese and yoghurt.

Dental Health

Dairy foods have a specific role to play in our dental health. They contain a unique combination of special anti-decay nutrients such as calcium, phosphorus and the protein, casein. Milk has also been linked to a reduction in cavities. Think Dairy, for Dental Health!
