Our Protein Smoothies are made from fresh milk and contains no added protein. So our milk naturally has the same balance of whey and casein proteins as regular milk, only twice as much protein per serve (30 grams per bottle). To achieve this, we use a cold filtration process to concentrate the protein by filtering some of the water out from the milk. We actually use 2 litres of fresh milk to create 1 litre of Rokeby Farms milk. So we are not adding protein, we are simply concentrating it. There is no spray-drying or chemicals used in our process which you might encounter in products made with added milk or protein powders. And, you will enjoy a fresher tasting, creamier product without the chalky taste.
We source fresh, local Aussie milk, from a collection
of farms located in and around Victoria.
The raw milk is chilled and transported from the farms to our facility in Melbourne.
We pass our milk through a series of filters to remove some of the water and lactose which naturally increase protein and calcium.
Our fresh cold filtered milk has three times the protein and calcium of regular milk.
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.
We then fill our delicious smoothies into bottles for a delicious breakfast on-the-go.
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, 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 smoothies are not lactose-free but are low-lactose and may be able to be enjoyed by people who are sensitive to lactose.
The answer to your question is actually the key difference in Rokeby and what sets us apart from other high protein beverages that are made with added protein powders. Rokeby is made with fresh milk which contains double the protein of regular milk and does not contain added protein. To achieve this, we use a cold filtration process to increase the naturally occurring protein and remove some of the water in the milk. In fact, we need around 2 litres of milk to make 1 litre of our high protein fresh milk. So we are not adding protein, we are simply concentrating it. There is no spray-drying or chemicals used in our process which you might encounter in products made with added powders. And, you will enjoy a fresh and creamy tasting product without the chalky texture sometimes associated with high protein beverages.
Rokeby offers some varieties with no added sugar and some that do contain a small amount of added sugar which is added for taste and consistency.
