What is Organic Valley Fortified Milk?

Are you someone who's always looking for more? You’re looking to get more out of life. More out of a dollar. And yes, you even expect more from your milk. We hear you, and we’ve got you covered.

Organic Valley Fortified Milk is available in ultra-pasteurized Lowfat 1% and Fat Free varieties. It’s the same high-quality, organic milk from our cooperative’s family farmers, but there’s more to it.

More of what?

One thing and one thing only: Milk. We use Organic Valley Nonfat Dry Milk Powder, which is our own organic milk, just with the water and fat removed. From a nutritional perspective, using skim milk powder makes it possible to increase the protein and calcium per serving in the milk you already love. Fortified milk is really just milk with more milk in it!

Is fortified milk better than regular milk?

Here are the facts: Organic Valley Fortified Lowfat Milk has 35% more protein per serving than regular milk, and the fat free version has 25% more protein—that’s 20% daily value (DV). And calcium is 30% DV!

Plus, it tastes oh-so good. The organic milk powder gives the lowfat and skim milk more of the rich and creamy taste you associate with whole milk.

Why would we bother making perfectly good milk even better?

Well, we do have a reputation for being over-achieving do-gooders, but there’s more to it than that.

Since 1988, the farmers in our cooperative have been producing the highest quality organic milk available. Every gallon of Organic Valley milk goes through 57 quality checks between the farm and your table. We combine our passion for exceptional animal care with our commitment to providing the most nutrient-dense products for you and your family. And for more than three decades, Organic Valley has been equally committed to ensuring that family farms stay in business.

By using our organic nonfat dry milk powder to make fortified milk, we’re able to use more of our farmers’ milk, allowing us to continue supporting small organic dairy farms while providing your family with more protein and calcium at the price you’re used to.

With Organic Valley Fortified Milk, more really does mean more—for you and everyone else!
