frequently asked questions

Is it safe to order your milk online? Does it have preservatives?

YES it is safe. NO there are not preservatives. Our products are 100% natural.

We use the same pasteurization technique that you see with many current coffee drinks in both cans and glass.  Without preservatives, using this process, we can deliver products safely to your door without refrigeration. But like most drinks - drink it cold for best taste!

Milk doesn’t usually agree with me… so how is yours different?

We are lactose-free. Lactose is a large sugar that 75% of adults globally have trouble digesting.

When it’s removed or broken down into smaller sugars, milk products become digestible once again.
Lactose-intolerance is not the prettiest term, but it’s real. Chances are at some point in your life, lactose has affected your well-being, whether you know it or not. In our product, not only filter out most of the lactose sugars, but we also use an all-natural enzyme (lactase) to break down the lactose. All Slate products are 100% lactose free.

How do you have less sugar than regular white skim milk?

We naturally filter out most of milk’s natural sugars (lactose) using a process called ultrafiltration.
It’s pretty simple, no chemicals nor ground-breaking technology involved. Our milk is still fresh and delicious.

Are all of your farms family-owned?

Yes! We source our milk from 30 family-owned dairy farms, here in the United States.

What does it mean that you are 100% animal welfare compliant?

Our farmers care about their animals. Because of this, they are fully compliant under the AWA (Animal Welfare Act) and make sure the cows are well fed!
