Best Milk for Kefir & Yogurts

Published by ED Kasper on 17th Nov 2022

All milk is not equal.

Our recommended milk is Whole Pasteurized Milk.

or Whole Homogenized Milk that is not Ultra Pasteurized

 Best bet:  Local source and pasteurized or  raw milk with inspections.

AVOID  where possible. Ultra Pasteurized, A2 Milk, and milk treated with Antibiotics, and cows injected with genetically emgingeered hormones rBGH (rBST) and other additives.

We encourage checking out your local cheese - making group. As they know not all milk is equal. Hopefully they can recommend a good milk in your area. - and Kefir does make for some great cheese.

The following brands may be produced with rBGH;

Colombo (General Mills)

Kemps (aside from “Select” brand)

Land O’ Lakes




All Organic Milk is not equal.


 # 1 above offers both Pasteurized and Ultra Pasteurized.

#2 Only Ultra Pasteurized, so please avoid

#3 Only Pasteurized and is our # 1 Choice for Best Milk from a healthy cow

Natural by Nature:  Organic, Grass fed  and not -UHT

Our # 1 Top Spot for Goats Milk  is Summerhill .
