Nutritionist Lovneet Batra highlights three important things that you must know while buying dairy.
Opting for organic dairy products is key to consuming healthy and safe dairy products
Milk and other dairy products happen to be a staple in most households. They are loaded with important nutrients like calcium, phosphorous, vitamins, and potassium among others. These days, there are many kinds of milk available to choose from. So, it's everyone's responsibility to make an informed decision and choose the right kind of dairy. Sharing a post on Instagram, nutritionist Lovneet Batra highlights the three important points to remember for buying safe and healthy dairy. Since June 1 is observed as World Milk Day, she has also added the hashtag “World Milk Day”.
Lovneet Batra shares the following three tips:
1. Choose small and medium family farms
Instead of blindly relying on packaged or processed milk from the market, you must make effort and visit the farms that are owned by farmers and their families. Buy milk from the local farmers' markets.
2. Choose grass-fed cows for healthy milk
Grass-fed cows provide healthier milk. It is believed that the milk from grass-fed cows is way healthier than the others. So, it's better if you choose the milk that comes from cows consuming a forage-based diet.
3. Choose local Indian breeds
It's always good to rely on local Indian breeds for dairy. By doing this, you would also be supporting the local businesses of farmers who have been dependent on this profession for their livelihood.
