Frequently Asked Questions

Koita was founded by concerned parents who wanted to offer the best organic products to their family. They spent 2.5 years listening to thousands of people from the region and researched what was important (ie. credible certifications, Vitamin D3, no plastic, etc). Then they travelled all over the world in search of the happiest grass fed cows; and finally produced the highest quality, tastiest and creamy organic milk!

Koita travelled the world for the highest quality premium organic milk. This included the US (East Coast, Midwest and West Coast), UK, Europe, and even in the region. We chose Italy because it had one of the most fertile environments, had very experienced and strict EU organic certification processes and frankly the milk tasted the best!

  • Organic Certified
  • Produced with:
    • NO artificial preservatives
    • NO toxic pesticides

  • Comes from happy grass fed cows and produced in Italy with fertile lush farmland!
  • Eco-Friendly in so many ways!
    • Packed in TetraPak paper, NOT plastic
    • European farms typically use less water to produce a liter of Milk versus an artificial farm that is dependent on energy intensive desalination.
    • Another advantage of long life milk is it can be delivered via sea rather than air freight, meaning the carbon footprint is significantly reduced.

Koita has perfected a way to provide fresh creamy tasting organic milk with a 6 months shelf life (can be stored in room temp. and chilled before serving) whilst using NO artificial preservatives! Furthermore, it is produced from 100% Pure, fresh organic cow’s milk (no powders). We use a process called UHT whereby we heat the milk with steam for just a few seconds and cool it down immediately, then we put it in an air-tight aseptic Tetra Pak package made from paper that also provides light barrier, thus preserving the original taste and freshness. Yes, it tastes great!

Ultra Heat Treatment is a means of heating milk for a few seconds with steam and then immediately cooling it down to kill off nasties and preserve all the goodness. Here is the thing… all milk, including your usual short life (a.k.a. fresh) variety, is also pasteurised using heat treatment. The main difference between UHT and the traditional method is the temperature it’s done at and the time. Koita immediately package our premium Italian milk using air-tight Tetrapak cartons (no plastic – hooray!) designed to keep light and oxygen out and the creamy goodness in. You don’t even have to refrigerate the cartons until after they’re open!

First of all most people don’t realize but both short life (also known as fresh) and long life (also known as UHT) are both pasteurized. By pasteurized we mean heat treated to eliminate bad bacteria. Ultra Heat Treatment (UHT) is a means of heating milk for a few seconds with steam and then immediately cooling it down to kill off nasties and preserve all the goodness. The only difference between UHT and the short life (a.k.a. fresh) method is the temperature it’s done at. Koita immediately packages our premium Italian milk using air-tight Tetrapak cartons (no plastic!) designed to keep light and oxygen out and the creamy goodness in. You don’t have to refrigerate the cartons until after they’re open.

Nope! In fact, Koita’s organic UHT milk and fresh milk have the same quality of proteins and the key vitamin, riboflavin, is unaffected by the process. And just to ensure that Koita’s milk exceeds customer standards, milk is enriched it with halal certified Vitamin A and D3. And since Koita’s milk doesn’t need to be flown to retain its freshness, they’ve reduced their carbon footprint by opting for sea shipments from Europe.

Koita Organic Milk has added Vitamin D3, which is plant-based and Halal certified. D3 is also a form of vitamin D with superior absorbability in the stomach.

A person is lactose intolerant if their body cannot produce the enzyme lactase which breaks down the sugar in milk.

Koita adds the natural enzyme lactase to its premium, hormone free and antibiotic free milk in order to make it lactose free. The enzyme breaks down the lactose sugar in milk into more easily digestible sugars called glucose and galactose. This allows people who are lactose intolerant the ability to enjoy drinking and/or consuming milk. 

Koita Lactose Free Milk comes in the following variety and sizes:

  • Low Fat (Semi-Skimmed) 1.55%:  1 Litre & 200mL kids size with resealable cap
