Such a happy day for me because I was just asking my husband over the weekend where we could buy Raw Milk here in Malaysia, and Alhamdulillah, today my question was answered as we found it while doing our grocery shopping!
It’s simple stuff like this that can really make my day.
So, we were in the dairy section at Village Grocer, Bangsar Village and saw this cute bottle branded “Bright Cow – Fresh Jersey Milk”. Jersey cows? Awesome! And what was even more awesome was when I saw that the milk was Non Pasteurised, and Non Homogenised. Score! It’s RAW!
I love reading labels and scanning the whole product, so then I saw that it was 100% Malaysian. Support local products? DEFINITELY! Especially if it’s well-made quality stuff. But then I immediately asked my husband, “How much is it?” I was hoping it would be around RM7-8, but it wasn’t too bad. Village Grocer’s price was RM9.39.
We bought it and went straight home. I was nervous about drinking it. Would it be good? Tasty? Horrible? Well, there was only one way to find out. Poured out a glass and took a sip. WOW! It’s excellent! It reminded me of the delicious fresh milk we had in Germany. I like the taste but I wouldn’t be able to explain it well. You’ll just have to go and try it yourself.
Anyway, I just had to read up on them and gain more information about Bright Cow. (I love doing research.) We were really happy to find out that the cows are mainly grass-fed as we love our dairy products to come from grass-fed cows. They do however supplement with rice straw and 100% natural vegetable pellets. We’d love it if the cows were 100% grass-fed, but I guess that’s okay. I’m just truly grateful that buying raw milk is now easier.
For those who stumbled upon this post and can’t figure out why I’m crazy for raw milk from grass-fed cows, hop on over HERE – it explains what I believe in. I also like Chris Kresser’s article. Read THIS as well as it’s very informative. Feel free to google more about it though and form your own educated opinion.
