With Colostrum the Time of Harvest is Everything
Harvest time is of the essence. Colostrum transitions to milk hour by hour post calving, and the second milking is approximately 84% milk. All Synertek colostrum is harvested from the first milking within 4 to 6 hours post calving.
150 Million Years in Nature’s Laboratory
Colostrum is about balance, with all the hundreds of components working together in the proportions designed by nature for maximum synergy. For proportional purposes some companies fractionate colostrum or remove the fat in order to raise the percentages of the most highly publicized components. Fractionated colostrum is imbalanced colostrum. It should be noted that the fat in colostrum is not “just fat”. It contains an array of special-purpose lipids, such as gangliosides, which are essential for nerve health and brain function. Colostrum which dissolves easily in water has been defatted. Scientists estimate that mammals have evolved over a period of 150 million years. In 150 million years of working on colostrum, nature surely got it right. All Synertek colostrum is 100% whole and intact, exactly as designed by nature, nothing added and nothing removed.
Synertek colostrum is harvested from Wisconsin family farms after the calves have consumed enough to ensure their health, strength, and vitality, and consequently the future of the dairy herds. The farms are carefully chosen for overall quality, with appropriate regard for the health and welfare of the cows and calves, organic practices, and grass feeding.
Each batch of Synertek colostrum is processed and packaged with Good Manufacturing Practices. It is carefully spray dried at low temperature and flash pasteurized with state-of-the-art technology that preserves maximum product quality while providing safety, eliminating the small but real chance of contracting pathogens such as listeria, salmonella, E coli, and tuberculosis mycobacterium.
Each batch of colostrum is tested both by an in-house lab and an independent lab, Minnesota Valley Testing Laboratories, for purity, safety, and to be certain it meets the parameters for 4 to 6 hour colostrum, and only then is it certified as being 4 to 6 hour colostrum and of organic quality.
