Do you supply toned milk as well ?
Currently we only have Whole Cow's Milk. The fat content of this milk is between 3.5 to 4%. However, whole cow's milk is lighter than normal toned milk available in the market, which is primarily Buffalo's milk. Almost 40% of the fat in the milk can be extracted in the form of cream-layer/Malai when you boil the milk. We would soon be coming with reduced fat milk variants.
What do you mean by whole milk ?
Whole milk is milk from which no constituents have been removed or adjusted. It is a non-standardised milk where the fat has not been set to a particular value through extra processing . Whole milk is pure milk containing all its goodness in its natural form as received from the cow. It's milk, the way nature has made it. Hence, Whyte Farms Milk is Whole Cow's Milk.
If it is whole milk, why isn't there any thick Malai on it after it is boiled and cooled ?
- Full fat milk from cow cannot be compared with conventional brands milk, because the latter is mainly Buffalo's milk. Also, in conventional brands, cream/fat is added as per percentage proportions to make different variants. Conventional full cream brands contain 6% fat.
- Cow's whole milk cannot be more than 4% fat because it is the natural lactating property of the cow that its light in terms of fat, thus easy to digest. That’s why its widely known that cow milk fat is GOOD FAT.
I can't set good Dahi with the milk. It's quite runny. Why is that so ?
- Firstly, the milk available in the market has certain percentage of Skimmed Milk Powder (SMP) mixed, hence you get curd very thick and creamy (chakka kind of), because of the powder content in the milk.
- Whyte Farms Milk is 100% farm fresh, direct from the udder, so there is natural Solids Not Fat (SNF) which is relatively low in comparison to conventional milk brands
- Setting curd with Whyte Farms Milk is altogether a different vis-à-vis the conventional brands. When you put Whyte Farms Milk for boiling/heating (while setting curd) make sure that you put/mix culture when the milk is about 5 minutes away from boiling and then maintain the temperature of the utensil
- Don’t use readymade curd (pouch/cup/matki etc.) as culture, either use the curd or Chaach (Butter Milk) made by Whyte Farms milk.
What is pasteurisation ?
It is a process that heats the milk at a particular temperature for a stipulated time to ensure killing of harmful bacteria while maintaining its nutrient value. Thus, making the milk safe to drink straight from the bottle.
Is the milk pasteurised ?
Yes, it is. It reduces or kills viable pathogens that are likely to cause diseases. Pasteurised milk is preferred all over the world with scientifically documented health benefits. The process of pasteurisation has been designed for the safety of the consumer.
Do I need to boil the milk ?
No, since our milk is already pasteurised, it can be consumed without boiling. Drink it chilled for best taste.
I've had cow's milk when I was a child, and it was always yellow in colour. But the milk you supply is white. Is it really cow's milk ?
- Yellow color in milk is mainly due to presence of carotenoid. Some breeds have high amounts of it while others have low amount of carotenoid generation. Hence, the yellow tinge in the milk can vary by breed, the food and other factors.
- Presence of less yellow tinge is nothing to worry about. It is due to the fresh seasonal diet fed to the cows.
- After boiling and refrigerating the milk, you can witness that the malai/cream layer on the top is slightly yellow.
Is this A1 milk or A2 milk ?
Scientifically, we cannot establish whether it is A1 or A2 milk, as we don't have A1/A2 certification available in India. Most milch cattle give milk which contains both A1 & A2 protein, but to what percentage, we cannot commit. It can be in any proportion for a given cow i.e. 50/50, 60/40, 70/30 or vice-versa and so on…
What is A2 milk ?
Milk contains 2 types of proteins, namely A1 beta casein & A2 beta casein. Normally, cows contain a combination of A1/ A2 type protein in their milk. A2 milk is milk derived from cows that contain only A2 type beta casein protein. There is a very subtle difference between the 2 proteins.
Is A2 milk better?
Some people try to sell their milk as A2 milk saying that A2 milk comes only from Indian cows and that is better than milk that contains A1 protein. This is a myth and is aimed at misleading the consumers as there is no conclusive proof that A2 milk is better than A1 type milk. Although, A2 milk could be easier for some to digest. Similarly, it is incorrect to say that A2 milk comes only from Indian breed of cows as A2 type protein can be found in exotic cows as well that carry the A2 type gene. We at Whyte Farms provide both types of milk with equal amount of health benefits.
Is whyte farms milk certified?
Yes, we are certified by International organization for standardization(ISO). And, also licensed by Food Safety and Standards Authority of India(FSSAI).

Why is the milk thickness inconsistent unlike the branded packaged milk?
Whyte Farms milk is farm fresh raw milk. We do not do any sort of processing on the milk. Branded packaged milk is standardized and homogenized to ensure consistency in the milk, but these processes alter the natural state of the milk. Our milk thickness and taste would be impacted by weather, local seasonal fodder fed to the cows and lactation cycle of our cows.
What is the shelf life of the milk?
The milk , when stored under refrigerated conditions will last for three days.
Which breed of cows do you have?

We are strictly against the use of Oxytocin or any other form of hormones.
How is this milk Antibiotic free?
The milk from any cow which is on an antibiotic course is excluded. Therefore, the milk is completely antibiotic free
What kind of fodder do these cows eat?
Our cows get a planned meal every day. We specially grow high quality Maize, Alfalfa, Greens, Soya and Bran to prepare a wholesome diet to keep them healthy and happy. Our nutritionists ensure that there is the right balance of minerals and vitamins. They create a menu for different ages of the cows and their physical needs. The menu, as you would have guessed, is changed regularly to include fresh seasonal crops and specials to keep our cows excited and munching all day.
We call this a Total Meal Ration and it is designed to keep every cow in prime healthy condition. The result is rich wholesome milk, that is natural and full of the vital goodness of cow's milk.
