Bovine colostrum for human and animal health
With decades of experience and products developed using the latest research and science, our lines of colostrum based products have high bioactivity, superior dispersibility, and supported health benefits. Our colostrum products provide high levels of naturally occurring bioactive components, optimized for human and animal health and nutrition.
What Sets Us Apart
Our colostrum is only collected during a first-day milking. Colostrum collected during the first day after a calf is born has significantly higher levels of bioactive components, including immunoglobulins (Ig), immune factors, and growth factors than subsequent days. Our proprietary processing maintains a high level of immune and growth factors, retaining the bioactivity and resulting in a highly efficacious product.
We offer both agglomeration and instantizing technologies for our colostrum powders to ensure consistent particle size and enhanced dispersibility. As a result, the colostrum powders are highly dispersible and flowable benefiting many downstream processing needs. This processing advantage enables customers to more easily use colostrum in applications such as sachets, capsules, tablets, cosmetics, drink mixes and other human consumption applications.
We standardized levels of IgG, protein and fat. This ensures consistency of quality, safety and potency. Standardization of other components is also possible. Our raw colostrum testing protocol includes chemistry, specification of pathogens and general microbiology and other necessary testing to assure colostrum is collected from the first day only and is free from adulterants.
Each colostrum product batch is thoroughly analyzed prior to shipment to assure its quality, efficacy and safety. Analytical chemistry, microbiological and other necessary testing is performed using AOAC or other approved testing methods. We test and certify the immunoglobulin G (IgG) content of our colostrum powders using in-house High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) methods and analytical testing.
With a newly expanded 112,000 sq. ft. production facility in Phoenix, our capacity now covers 75% of the world’s total colostrum production. Our proprietary processing does not degrade immune and growth factors, but instead retains that bioactivity resulting in quality products.
To date, there are over 6,000 studies illuminating the science of bovine colostrum. And with emerging scientific studies continuing to explore the safest and most beneficial applications of colostrum for human and animal health, the industry is ever-changing. A 2019 independent scientific expert panel affirmed the safety of our bovine colostrum as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS).
