Milk: The Whole Wholesome Story

While milk may seem to be a simple matter, there’s actually quite a bit most people don’t know – especially why some milk is healthier for you than others. It’s our mission at Hartzler Family Dairy to educate you about milk, and why you can trust us to provide the healthiest, safest and tastiest milk around.

It comes down to our method of processing, which starts before our cows are ever milked! You see, we believe in doing things the way nature intended, so our cows are artificial hormone-free, and we rely as little as possible on mechanical processing. So what does this mean to you? Plenty…

The health benefits of drinking Hartzler milk make it the smart choice for you and your family:

Superior Nutrition

…grass fed cows & unhomogenized milk make the difference!

Hartzler’s dairy cows graze freely in pasture and consume healthy, green grass during warm weather months. Milk from grass-fed cows has a higher content of vitamins and Omega-3s,as well as higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid, which have been found to have cancer-fighting properties. In addition, Hartzler milk is not homogenized, leaving milkfat globules intact to carry important nutrients like Vitamins A & D to the body.


Improved Digestion

…low-temperature vat pasteurization preserves enzymes.

Hartzler milk is enzyme-rich due to our low-temperature vat pasteurization process. These enzymes are crucial for digestion, as they assimilate nutrients into the body. Lactase, for example, converts lactose into energy and phosphatase assimilates calcium into our bones. We are the only dairy in Ohio to pasteurize milk this way. Our process kills harmful bacteria, in compliance with FDA rules, without harming enzymes. Because of this, many people who have been diagnosed as lactose intolerant can drink our milk!


All Natural Goodness

…no artificial hormones in our cows, means none in your milk!

Our cows are certified artificial hormone free and are fed from our own farms. They graze on pesticide and herbicide-free grass in warm months and receive pesticide and herbicide-free hays, grasses, and silage grown on our own farms during snowy winter months.

Grassfed Milk

Grassfed Milk

Earlier experiments have shown that cows on a diet of fresh grass produce milk with five times as much of an unsaturated fat called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than do cows fed processed grains. Studies in animals have suggested that CLAs can protect the heart, and help in weight loss.

 News Bulletin - NEW Research has found benefits to drinking chocolate milk after a workout.

Here’s why post-workout chocolate milk tops the list when it comes to fueling yourself after a hard session at the gym.

 Protein Content

Post-workout chocolate milk is beneficial because of its protein content. Every cup contains between eight and 11 grams of protein, with the Clover and Bravo Foods brands containing the most. Ideally, you’ll want to consume between 15 and 25 grams of protein after a workout, which equates to 500 to 750 ml of chocolate milk.

Also, a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that, when taken immediately after exercise, milk-based proteins promote greater muscle protein synthesis than soy-based proteins.

Finally, another reason why post-workout chocolate milk is beneficial is because cow’s milk contains about 80 percent casein protein content and 20 percent whey protein content. This is ideal because the whey protein is fast-acting, allowing amino acids to get right into the muscle tissue, while the casein protein is digested slower, providing a steady stream of amino acids over a lengthier period of time.

 Carbohydrate Content

Turning to post-workout chocolate milk immediately following your lifting sessions is a smart move because of the types of carbohydrates it provides. The total carbohydrate count will vary depending upon the brand you choose, with most coming in around 20 to 25 grams of carbohydrates. The highest carb count is found in Hershey’s 2% Chocolate Milk, which rings in at 31 grams, while Hood’s Calorie Countdown 2% Chocolate Milk has the lowest carb count (5 grams).

This sugar will cause a spike in insulin levels, driving the glucose molecules into the muscle tissue and replenishing the energy stores for your next workout. Without this insulin spike, you’re going to be looking at a slower recovery period, which could mean more time out of the gym.

A study by the International Journal of Sports Nutrition had subjects perform three interval-style, exhaustion workout sessions on separate days, and then monitored the recovery that was demonstrated. The subjects consumed either chocolate milk or a carbohydrate replacement fluid post-workout.
