No amount of discussion will change the fact that protein decreases and lactose increases as time passes for each milking after calving. The amount of protein to lactose in colostrum products is a straightforward and reliable tool to determine the raw colostrum harvest details.
The standards, composition and harvest time of Immuno-Dynamics/Goetsche Labs colostrum are compared with the Fundamentals of Dairy Chemistry below.
Has the colostrum you are buying been defatted in order to raise the apparent percentage figures of other components, as is sometimes done for advertising purposes? If you do not know, just ask. You have every right to know. Fat in colostrum is not “just fat” that should be discarded. The fat in colostrum contains an array of bioactive lipids, such as gangliosides, which are essential for nerve health and brain function.
