At Galliker’s, we’re dedicated to bringing you the freshest and most nutritious dairy products possible.
Cool, creamy, and with nothing artificial, Galliker’s milk is a nutritional powerhouse. It is packed with 13 essential nutrients: protein, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin A, vitamin D, riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5) and cobalamin (B12), iodine, potassium, selenium and zinc.
All our milk products are rBST-free and supplied from farms within a 100-mile radius of our plant in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Once processed, our milk is transferred to our signature Lightsafe Yellow Jugs, which block light rays that can change the taste of the milk and break down important nutrients like Vitamin A.
At Galliker’s, there’s goodness in everything we do.
Light Safe Yellow Jug
Did you know that just four hours of light exposure can cause milk to lose up to 20% of its Vitamin A? And in a typical dairy case, over half of the milk remains there for more than eight hours. Other brands package their milk in transparent plastic jugs that allow consumers to see the milk’s white color. Unfortunately, those same jugs also let light in, depleting the level of crucial nutrients and allowing a rapid light induced oxidation that changes the taste of the milk.
Our Lightsafe Yellow Jug is completely opaque, blocking harmful light rays from ever reaching your milk!
With the same essential nutrients as white, chocolate milk is a healthy choice as well – and kids absolutely love the taste. In schools, 70 percent of milk kids choose is flavored, with low-fat chocolate the most popular choice. And those who drink flavored milk are less likely to drink soda, which has almost no nutritional value.
Chocolate milk is also the ideal sports recovery beverage because it contains the golden ratio of carbs to protein – about 3-4 grams of carbs for every 1 gram of protein. This ratio helps rehydrate your body, repair your muscles, and replenish your energy after exercise.
