The fresh milk used to make Cowbell is collected from thousands of dairy farms in countries with ideal rainfall and agricultural conditions, where there is clean air and lush green grass, ensuring the best quality of milk.
Due to improvements made in the dairy industry over the years, cows are milked automatically by sophisticated machinery attached to the cows’ udders.
The milk is then collected and stored in large stainless steel coolers during the milking process.
The milk is then transferred to special insulated refrigeration trucks, which are used to transport fresh milk from the dairies to the manufacturing plant. Each vehicle is cleaned thoroughly before milk collection and again, after delivery before re-entering the plant.
Upon arrival at the licenced manufacturing plant, the fresh milk is subjected to rigorous quality control tests by our highly qualified laboratory staff before it is accepted for processing. Once the fresh milk has passed these stringent controls, it is pumped into special storage tanks to be processed according to Cowbell's unique formula.
The first part of the process involves pasteurising the fresh milk to make it safe for drinking. Pasteurisation occurs when milk is quickly heated to about 70 degrees Celsius to kill any disease carrying bacteria. The butterfat (or animal fat) is then removed from the milk and replaced with vegetable fat, which significantly reduces the cholesterol level. This therefore offers a far healthier, improved product with a longer shelf life. In addition to this vitamins A, C, D, E, and K are added to the milk to provide extra nutrition. The milk is then homogenised, which means that the added vegetable fat is broken up into small particles and then mixed evenly into the rest of the milk.
Finally, it is passed through a spray drying tower to form powdered milk. A substance called lecithin is added to the milk powder, to ensure that Cowbell mixes instantly and easily with water.
Cowbell is then bulk packed at the plant and sent to the various countries, where it is then repacked into various sachets and block bottom bags. Each sachet consists of three layers of ultra-thin, strong material that keeps the milk powder fresh.
Cowbell is available in a wide range of convenient sizes. The packaging contents need to be mixed in warm or cold, safe drinking water. If the water is not clean boil it before mixing with Cowbell. Cowbell dissolves instantly.
Cowbell Filled Milk Powder is a delicious way to provide the necessary nutrition required for a healthy lifestyle. So when you drink a glass of Cowbell, you can be sure that you are getting all the protein, vitamins, minerals, calcium and energy needed for growth and good health.
