What varieties of milk do you supply?
We only do farm fresh whole cow milk (without any processing). We don’t make other variants like full cream, toned or double toned.
What do you mean by whole milk?
Whole milk is the most natural state of milk as obtained from the cow. There are no additives or preservatives in the milk. The milk is not processed in any which way.
If it is whole milk, why isn’t there any thick Malai on it after it is boiled and cooled?
Thick malai/cream on top is directly proportional to the fat percent in the milk. A cow generally gives milk at 3.5% – 4.5% fat content so the malai comes accordingly. However, if you compare it with market/industrial variants like full cream, which is 6% fat, they are made by adding extra cream to milk thus giving a thicker malai/cream
I can’t set good Dahi with the milk. It’s quite runny. Why is that so?
The viscosity of dahi/curd is directly proportional to the SNF (solid non fat) content in the milk. Largely the milk sold in market is treated with SMP (skimmed milk powder) raising the SNF content, which increases the viscosity of curd making it thick.
What is pasteurization? Is your milk pasteurized? Do I need to boil the milk?
Pasteurization is the industrial method of boiling . Though pasteurization was intended to only kill bad bacteria, however now this process is being used to increase the shelf life of milk by killing good bacteria as well. This is done by pasteurizing the milk at higher temperatures & shock heat methods. Domestic boiling is the natural and best method of pasteurization, which only kills the bad bacteria and retains the good ones. 4S Milk is 100% farm fresh raw milk without any processing or pasteurization and no preservatives or additives. Hence boiling is mandatory within 90 minutes of delivery.
I’ve had cow’s milk when I was a child, and it always used to be yellow in colour. But the milk you supply is off white/less yellow. Is it really cow’s milk?
Yellowness in the milk is directly proportional to beta-carotene in milk. Vaudev Dairy Milk turns yellowish after 6-7 hours of boiling (when kept under refrigeration) These days lot of people use artificial carotene to make a milk variant yellow and sell it claiming to be cow’s milk
Is your milk A1 or A2? What is A2 milk? Is A2 milk better?
We don’t make claims on A1A2 as this can only be determined by DNA test of each and every cow in the herd. Those who make such claims are basically misleading the consumers and are spreading misinformation This whole A1 A2 thing is a false propaganda being spread to incite fear among consumers and extract premium, however the truth is that 98% of milk in India is by default A2. (refer NBAGR website)

Without boiling the shelf life is 2 hours under refrigeration. In winters it can last up to 10-12 hours under refrigeration. Post boiling it stays good for 3-4 days under refrigeration.
How do you ensure that the milk is antibiotic free?
We don’t use steroids or antibiotics on our cows unless the ailment is severe and recommended by a veterinarian. Such cows are separated from the herd and are kept under observation. We use ayurvedic and natural treatment methods for minor ailments.
