  • Which is more important - grass fed or unhomogenized?

    One brand is organic and grass fed, but it is homogenized and ultra-pasteurized. The other brand is pasteurized but unhomogenized and it's grain fed. Which is the healthier option?

    The organic option sounds better to me. Grain fed involves too many antibiotics and hormones as a general rule.

    Better yet, try to find some goat milk. They don't need to homogenize it because it doesn't separate the way cow milk does.

      The goat milk is grain fed and ultra-pasteurized. Is it still a better option?

        I agree with paleobird. If you live in Italy, and I'm guessing you might from your username, there should be plenty of goat's dairy readily and cheaply available. I've read that Italy are trailblazers in terms of using goat's/sheep's dairy to treat children with intolerance to cow's dairy. Of course, goat and sheep farming is traditional in many regions.

        I'd be interested to know where buffalo mozzarella stands re: problems with casein.

          Pasteurization is really what you want to avoid if possible. Since both options are, I would stick with grass fed.

            As long as it is hormone and antibiotic free, yes. Goat milk is much closer to human milk than cow milk is. That's why, as paleo-bunny pointed out, it is often used successfully for people who thought they had an intolerance to milk.

            Buffalo mozzarella sounds wonderful.

              Re: buffalo mozzarella, former F1 world champion Jody Scheckter ended up living in the UK and has an organic estate called Laverstoke Park with a herd of buffalo for buffalo Mozzarella, buffalo steak etc. In the UK it can be ordered direct from Laverstoke Park Farm and can be found in some supermarkets.

                I've eaten a ton of buffalo mozzarella. It's delicious stuff. Just unsure where it stands regarding casein types.

                  Are we talking about water buffalo here or bison? In the US, much of what are called "buffalo" are actually a cross breed of the native bison with cattle brought in by Europeans. I would think it would be kind of hard to get a bison to hold still and be milked. Not sure about a water buffalo.
