Know
your milk

We assure you that every product from our farm is as fresh and pure as it should be. Every batch of milk and other products is tested for antibiotics, hormones, and other adulterants.

The harmful effects of Antibiotics, Hormones & Adulterants

Milk is an integral part of the Indian diets, particularly that of children. To promote the growth and wellness of livestock, various types of antibiotics and hormones are being used beyond the tolerance limits set by FSSAI.

Because of that, a substantial proportion of antibiotics are released through the milk, making it unsafe to consume. This processed milk sold in packets is largely unchecked for hormonal and antibiotic residues. These residues can interfere with our own hormone function and are detrimental to our overall health. According to FSSAI, 37.7% of processed milk samples and 47% of raw milk samples failed to meet prescribed norms. Water, sugar, starch, foreign fat, caustic soda, urea, detergent, salt, maltodextrin, sodium carbonate, formalin and ammonium sulphate are among the various adulterants being used in milk.

These antibiotic & hormonal residues and adulterants can cause food poisoning, gastrointestinal issues, and sometimes fatal, especially for children and the elderly. Regular consumption of this milk can increase Microbial Drug Resistance (MDR) or Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), making medicines become ineffective, and infections become increasingly difficult or impossible to treat.

Differences between Raw Milk, Regular Packet Milk, & A2 Milk

Raw Milk

Raw milk supplied by local milkmen is unprocessed and unpasteurized, posing severe health risks when consumed. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) research, raw milk caused 127 outbreaks and 1,909 illnesses. It carries harmful bacteria like Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria, Campylobacter, and others, resulting in food poisoning. It also could have Hydrogen Peroxide to increase the shelf life in the absence of chilling systems.

Regular Packet Milk

Regular Packet milk contains both A1 and A2 beta-casein. It is the most abundantly available and the most commonly consumed milk today. It doesn’t undergo rigorous testing for contaminants, antibiotic & hormone residues, and adulterants. Some even mix Cow Milk and Buffalo Milk and sell it as pure packaged milk.

A2 Milk

A1 and A2 are 2 variants of casein, one of the significant kinds of protein in milk. The only significant difference between these two is that one of the 67 amino acids is different. There is a lot of hype surrounding the A2 Milk, thanks to the marketing campaigns full of claims regarding its health benefits. But the evidence to support those claims is still too weak to draw any solid conclusions. According to some claims, the BCM-7 peptide produced by A1 milk causes diabetes, heart diseases, autism, and schizophrenia.

When researchers found no truth in those claims and termed the campaigns speculative and unsubstantial, they changed their marketing proposition to easy digestion of A2 milk. It turned out that A2 milk has the same amount of lactose as conventional milk.

Our Quality Testing Process

At Sid’s Farm, we take samples from each and every batch of milk we receive from farmers and get from our cattle. The milk is tested for a wide variety of antibiotics, hormones, and other adulterants.

We follow a zero-tolerance policy and do 26 tests, including Fat and SNF testing, alcohol stability-60%, 70% and 80%, MBRT, COB tests on every batch of milk before it reaches your home.

If one sample is rejected, we dispose of the whole batch and yet pay the farmer a fair price for the milk. Even during the final packaging, every 500th packet is taken from the production line, and a complete series of tests are run to make sure all our quality parameters are met. We also provide a test kit to our customers so that they can test the milk they receive.

At Sid’s Farm, we strive relentlessly to ensure that every product from our farm to your home is as fresh and pure as it is intended to be. We make sure that the milk is delivered to you the very next day with freshness intact. And you only pay for what you get – superior quality milk, processed in state-of-the-art infrastructure, free from hormones, antibiotics, and adulterants. Also, a Sid’s Farm customer doesn’t have to buy ghee separately because of the cream they can obtain from our milk.
