If there’s one thing we love almost as much as ice cream at Talleys, it’s the fresh milk and cream we use to make it.
Fresh milk is delivered to the creamery each day, to ensure your ice cream contains only the freshest, and highest quality New Zealand dairy we can get our hands on.
Not only does this make your ice cream taste better, there are also a HEAP of benefits to gain from eating and drinking real, fresh dairy products. Here are some of our favourites:
It’s widely known that dairy products are a good source of calcium. But did you know how important the mineral was for our bodies? Calcium is essential for forming healthy bones and teeth, and reduces the likelihood of developing osteoporosis in the future. Calcium is also beneficial for nerve and muscle function. Depending on age and gender, New Zealand nutritional guidelines recommend two to three serves of milk per person per day.
Dairy products are also a great source of protein, which is essential for building muscles and supporting growth and development, particularly for kids. Children’s growth and development is also aided by the phosphorus, B vitamins, and potassium found in milk products.
We’re lucky to live in a country where our dairy cows have some of the best living conditions possible. This in turn leads to high quality milk. With so much space, long daylight hours, and lush pastures to graze on, it’s no surprise that the milk they produce is of the best quality possible. This milk is delivered to the Talley’s Ice Cream creamery fresh each and every day.
A natural source of fat; milk products can be a wonderful source of fats which are vital for our bodies, and their ability to transport and allow the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K.
With a recommended three serves of dairy per day, we think a scoop of Talley’s Ice Cream every now and then is a great way to mix up your calcium source, keeping those essential levels up where they should be.
