Bovine colostrum is the pre-milk liquid produced from the mammary glands of cows. Colostrum from the first milking produced when a calf is born has significantly higher levels of immunoglobulins (Ig), proline-rich-polypeptides (PRPs) and other important bioactive components. We accept colostrum from the first milking only.
Dairy cows produce more colostrum than their calves require. Mature dairy cows can produce about 12 liters of colostrum at the time the calf is born, and calves consume a third of that amount. In order to kick off the calf’s immune system, it is vital the newborn calf consumes this first milking colostrum. About 2 liters is fed to the calf within the first half hour after birth. About three hours later, the calf is given a boost of another 2 liters. The remaining 8 liters is used to produce our Colostrum.
The colostrum is then processed with a perfected method to preserve the efficacy and bioactivity of it. The facility pasteurizes through a batch pasteurization process or a special High Temperature Short Time (HTST) pasteurizer, which meets all USDA Pasteurization Milk Ordinance (PMO) requirements. Using flash pasteurization, potentially harmful pathogens are removed, while immunoglobulins, peptides and other biologically important proteins retain their bioactivity.
BodyBoost colostrum is spray dried using low pressure indirect steam and carefully controlled temperatures to produce a high-quality powder while protecting the colostral proteins. Each colostrum product batch is thoroughly analyzed prior to shipment to assure its quality, efficacy and safety.
