An innovative process allows the milk to be fortified with collagen before pasteurization. There is no impact on the milk’s taste or texture.
Jersey Milk with Collagen is a collaboration between premium dairy company Lewis Road Creamery and Jeuneora, New Zealand’s leading collagen brand.
“We’re super-charging fresh milk so you can get a dose of high-quality collagen without even having to think about it,” said Nic O’Rourke from Lewis Road Creamery.
The company said it had noticed a trend toward increasing consumer demand for greater functional health benefits from existing natural foods. The milk is fortified with a collagen targeted at supporting joints and mobility.
Jeuneora is providing the bovine collagen that is 100% natural and free from allergens, antibiotics, preservatives, added hormones, as well as being GMO-free.
“We’ve sourced a bovine collagen that is specifically used to support joint health,” said Monique Kaminski from Jeuneora.
“It took some clever thinking to marry the two components without affecting either the high-quality collagen or Lewis Road’s gorgeous fresh Jersey milk. We’re delighted it’s now ready to launch.”
A single 250ml serving of the Jersey Milk with Collagen contains 5gm of collagen. Bottled in Lewis Road’s 100% recyclable rPET bottles, Lewis Road Creamery Jersey Milk with Collagen is available in supermarkets for NZ$5.00 (US$3.38) for 750ml.
