Milk, a natural product overflowing with nutritious and taste properties, has been consumed by humans for over twelve thousand years by several civilisations. Dairy products, with milk as the top ingredient, are established partner to a balanced diet for people of all age.
Milk is the archetypal vital food, a dietary resource and symbol of purity, synonymous with wealth and abundance. It travelled through centuries and still remains one of the most established foods present in our daily diet.
Consequently, Chagnon Dairy insists on offering fresh milk collected from the farm and brought to your table in no time. Real fresh local milk only goes through simple pasteurization that guarantees optimal preservation of its integrity, for your benefit.
Silky white, rich and precious to cooks, cream consumption’s history is influenced by butter. Considered today as an ingredient or as a coating element, cream is in line with life styles that focus on a balanced diet.
Cream is a product of milk: a natural separation of the higher-butterfat from skimmed milk. Cream was traditionally skimmed from milk after resting for a day or so in a bowl: bearing with the process does not guarantee the results.
Centrifuge skimming was invented at the end of the X1X century and changed the whole process dramatically: cream is obtained within minutes. Pasteurization, a process invented around the same period, ensures its preservation. Fresh and authentic, Chagnon creams will surely fulfil your gastronomic cravings.
The basic principle of butter-making has remained the same since at least… five thousands years!
Transformation steps remain since the beginning: to harvest the cream (skimming), to let the cream age (maturation), to whip the cream (churning), to work the butter (washing and moulding).
Chagnon Dairy follows the butter-making traditions by using a churn in which humidity monitoring and buttermilk drainage are performed manually. Daily fresh milk supply allows a daily butter production from real fresh cream. There the value that sets us apart!
