What if the nutrients you were expecting just weren't there?

Indoor light damage means you could be left with under half of the expected Vitamin A in a glass of milk.

Indoor light damage affects how our milk tastes.

After continued exposure to retail light, fresh milk in inadequate packaging tasted off faster than light-protected milk.

What is indoor
light damage?

Did you know indoor light reduces the amount of nutrients in packaged goods like milk? After just two hours of exposure to indoor lights, nutrients, colour and taste are all affected. Whether your milk has sat under LED or fluorescent lighting on the supermarket shelf or even in your fridge, it’s likely to contain fewer nutrients, such as Vitamins A, B and B12, than it started with.

Why does
this matter?

Milk is packed with goodness and provides many of the essential nutrients that are important as part of a healthy lifestyle. From Vitamin A for great skin and eyesight, calcium to strengthen your bones, through to Vitamin B and Riboflavin that keep your nervous system, skin and eyes healthy, milk plays a vital part of a healthy and balanced diet.

The taste, freshness and nutritional value of the milk you drink matters.

So, what can
you do about it?

Believe it or not, it’s the bottle. Milk bottles can now be light-protected to keep in all the yummy goodness you love. Fresh milk protected from light remains fresher and tastier for longer. It’s time to ask for milk bottles and cartons to be light-protected and certified for your family.

Milk protected from indoor light remains fresher longer, tastes better and retains its nutrients and vitamins. Make sure you let your supermarket or milk company know you want light-protected milk.
