Our Process From Farm-to-Fridge

  • Protein Smoothies
    1. We source fresh milk from a collection of farms located in Gippsland, Victoria
    2. The raw milk is chilled and transported from the farms to our facility in Melbourne
    3. We pass our milk through a series of filters to remove some of the water and lactose which naturally increase protein and calcium
    4. Our fresh cold filtered milk has three times the protein and calcium of regular milk
    5. We flash pasteurise our milk for just a few seconds to make it is safe to consume then cold-fill to preserve quality and freshness
    6. We then fill our delicious smoothies into bottles for a delicious breakfast on-the-go!
  • Probiotic Yoghurt
    1. We source fresh milk from a collection of farms located in Gippsland, Victoria
    2. The raw milk is chilled and transported from the farms to our facility in Melbourne
    3. We flash pasteurise our milk for just a few seconds to make it is safe to consume
    4. We add a blend of 15 live and active cultures and probiotics with over 50+ billion good bacteria per 250g serve
    5. Our filmjölk is slow fermented the authentic Swedish way giving it a soft yoghurt texture and mild flavour
    6. Our light-weight bottles have a special UV-barrier to protect the live bacteria in the yoghurt

How is Rokeby Farms Probiotic Yoghurt made?

Rokeby Farms Probiotic Yoghurt is made the authentic Swedish way by slow fermenting fresh full cream milk with a specific blend of live cultures and probiotics. We source fresh milk from local Gippsland farms which is pasteurised making it safe to consume. The fermentation process acidifies the milk turning it into yoghurt with a thick and creamy texture and tart yoghurt taste.

How are the Rokeby Farms Protein Smoothies low in lactose?

Lactose is the naturally occurring carbohydrate (as sugar) found in milk. To help digest lactose your body contains the enzyme lactase however some people have difficulty digesting the enzyme which makes low-lactose or lactose-free products a potential option. The most common way to reduce lactose enzyme in products is to add lactase enzyme (similar name, but different) which naturally converts the lactose into more easily digestible carbohydrates (glucose and galactose). According to Australian food regulations, food/beverages that claim to be low lactose must contain no more than 2g per 100g, and for a food/beverage to claim it is lactose-free it contain no traceable amount of lactose.

Here at Rokeby Farms, our approach to reducing lactose is slightly different – our unique cold filtration process (which we use to increase the natural protein level in the milk) starts by completely removing (not converting) some of the naturally occurring lactose from the milk. We then add lactase enzyme to help convert some of the remaining lactose left in the milk. Our Rokeby Farms smoothies are not lactose-free but are low-lactose and may be able to be enjoyed by people who are sensitive to lactose.

Is the milk used homogenised in Rokeby Farms products?

Yes, we homogenize all of the milk that goes into making our Rokeby Farms dairy products to ensure a consistent taste and texture. Homogenization is purely a physical process, and doesn’t involve anything being added to our milk. Without homogenization, the milk would separate and the natural cream component would rise to the top of the milk, forming a layer.
