What is colostrum?

A gift from mother nature! “ The foremilk or first milk of female mammals is called colostrum."

Already before breast feeding the newborn with the actual mother’s milk, the mother produces a foremilk after giving birth. The so-called colostrum is produced in the first 36 hours by the mammary glands of the female mammal. This foremilk is particularly rich in nutrients (especially vitamins, minerals, and amino acids) and contains an extraordinary composition of growth factors and immunoglobulins (antibodies). Being a rich vital substance, this special milk is supposed to strengthen the suckling in an optimum way for the first weeks of its life.

Colostrum is a bovine derived food supplement which contains proteins, immunoglobulins (Ig), vitamins, amino acids and other growth factors (IGF-1 & 2).Bovine Colostrum is also rich in fat, sugar, proteins, micronutrients, antibodies, enzymes, amino acids and bioactive proteins which help growth and boost up the immune system. Various researches over the past several years have pointed out that Colostrum is the single most powerful immunity booster amongst the natural foods available to mankind.

Colostrum (also known as beestings or first milk) is a form of milk produced by the mammary glands in late pregnancy and the few days after giving birth. Human and bovine colostrums are thick, sticky and yellowish. In humans, it has high concentrations of nutrients and antibodies, but it is small in quantity.

Bovine colostrum is also used for boosting the immune system, healing injuries, repairing nervous system damage, improving mood and sense of well being, slowing and reversing aging, and as an agent for killing bacteria and fungus. Bovine colostrum is used in the rectum to treat inflammation of the colon (colitis).

What does Colostrum do for you?

Colostrum is a milky fluid that comes from the breasts of humans, cows, and other mammals the first few days after giving birth, before true milk appears. It contains proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and proteins (antibodies) that fight disease-causing agents such as bacteria and viruses.

What is special in Colostrovita?

We obtain our bulk colostrum exclusively from controlled and bio-certified farms in India.

Only the milk of the first 12 hours, when the nutrient concentration has its maximum level, is used. After the fore milk is milked from the mother cow, it is frozen and cold-stored in a collection point until further transport.

After the transport, the foremilk is thoroughly tested and stored under quarantine for 2 months. Thus it can be guaranteed, that the product is free from tuberculosis, brucellosis, and leucosis.

Our Colostrum
Collection Process

Even before entering into the business of processing bulk colostrum, the Cure Nutraceutical team already had the network in place to collect bulk colostrum from villages in North Gujarat to supply to buyers in Mumbai over the last two decades.

Strict quality criteria have been laid down and farmers have been made aware of precautions to be taken during and after obtaining bulk colostrum. The network is fully equipped with collection vans carrying disinfected plastic cans and deep freezers to immediately chill the bulk colostrum. Once the product is frozen, it is sent to the processing facility where it is once again checked for quality before accepting it for final processing.

Collection Process

Colostrum Drying Process

In order to make the best quality finished product available to the consumers, Cure Nutraceutical accepts and processes only that colostrum, which is obtained within the first 48 hours of parturition. There are two popular processes within the industry for drying of colostrum. Spray drying and freeze drying.

Spray Drying Process

Colostrum is pasteurized at 63°C for 30 minutes and passed on to the drying chamber through a centrifugal pump. The atomizer at the top of the drying chamber, converts the colostrum liquid into small droplets and sprays at a high speed inside the chamber which contains hot air. As the droplets dry midway, the colostrum powder falls at the bottom of the chamber where it is directly packed aseptically under controlled conditions.

This process involves heat and therefore there is a slight loss in the nutritional value of the product, however the advantage of this process is that the production capacity is not limited and the process is relatively economical.

Spray Drying Process

Freeze Drying Process

As the name suggests, this process involves freezing the product and evaporating the moisture out of the product to get the final powder. This is the best process to dry products which are heat labile in nature so as to preserve the nutritional value. Very few industry players prefer this process due to severe limitations in production capacity and tremendous operating cost which increases the price of the finished product.

However, there is no doubt that this is the best process to manufacture premium quality colostrum powder.
