Health Benefits of Milk

Originally posted at OrganicFacts.net:

The health benefits of milk include increased bone strength, smoother skin, stronger immune system, prevention of illnesses such as hypertension, dental decay, dehydration, respiratory problems, obesity, osteoporosis and even some forms of cancer. The beneficial health nutrients obtained from milk are essential for the human body and help prevent a number of chronic ailments.

Milk, quite simply, is a liquid that mammals can create in mammary glands in order to feed their young. The reason mammals have this is because this is what their young are naturally supposed to consume until they are strong enough or old enough to hunt for themselves or eat what their parents typically eat. Humans also have this ability, which is why we have begun to explore the interesting world of milk from other animals, in the hopes that milk could continue to nourish us throughout our lives, rather than simply at the beginning of it. Spoiler Alert…we were right! It can be very beneficial to us at all times of our life!

Many animals can provide us with this vital health substance, but cow’s milk is considered the best wholesome supplement for children as well as for adults. It is also the most accessible, while the milk of other animals like buffalo, goats, sheep, camels, reindeer and yak is much more difficult to acquire.

Milk from horses and donkeys can also be consumed by humans, but that is even less common, and much less pleasant to extract.

The health benefits of milk can be achieved from drinking milk directly or by consuming dairy products such as cheese, butter, curd, clarified butter or ghee, dairy whitener, ice cream, cottage cheese or paneer, flavored milk, or milk sweets. Put it this way, around the world, there are more than 6 billion people who regularly consume some type of food that is based on milk from an animal; it is one of the most essential elements of the human diet, since these animals that create milk are on almost every continent and country. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has clearly mentioned in its Dietary Guidelines to include milk and milk products to ensure a healthy, balanced diet.

Nutritional Value Of Milk

The nutritional value of milk is so well known that people all around the world include it as a staple part of their diet. Adding milk to your daily diet can also help you to achieve a well-balanced diet. It is an ideal source of nutrients such as vitamin A, B12, D calcium, carbohydrates, phosphorous, selenium, magnesium, protein, zinc and riboflavin. The Teagasc Dairy Products Research Center at Moorepark, Fermoy has reported recent research on using milk to neutralize the cholesterol content of the body. Most of the caloric content in milk comes from the natural sugars found in it. These are essential to the overall functioning and health of the body, and they reduce the chances of a number of deficiencies, and boost health in a variety of ways! Let’s explore more about the important impact of milk and milk-based products on our health!

Milk Deficiency

Milk deficiency can cause severe anemia, osteoporosis and other related illnesses. The consumption of milk is essential for maintaining good health and having the energy and strength to do normal activities.

It is the best source of calcium for all age groups, and since calcium is considered the most important mineral in the healthy growth, functioning, repair, and durability of the bones and skeletal system, milk will always have a significant role in people’s diets, as a way of preventing calcium deficiency or osteoporosis.

Dure Foods - B2B Wholesale

Evolving The B2B Wholesale Market

In the world of B2B wholesale and the ever-expanding realm of big data, if the rules haven’t changed, they have shifted significantly. What was once doctrine, centered on service agents and salesmen interactions, has been relegated to good form.

For most businesses, there a number of key rules that dictate success or failure. New eCommerce techniques have breached the barrier between innovative theories, to best business practices.

This is especially the case in the food production and distribution industries, where customer interaction rates and revolutionized marketing strategies have taken the forefront.

This list will comprise some of the most important factors of building a b2b wholesale business on and off the internet.

1) Streamlining the B2B Wholesale order process.

Certainly the increase in data sharing has made acquisition of information easier and more efficient, which helps customers find what they want and helps you get it to them.

But focusing and shorter delivery times and over user interfaces of your B2B wholesale system will not only increase your customer satisfaction, but also make them more likely to come back. Additionally, this limits waste on the suppliers and retailers, who may feel the ramifications of storage costs.

This also ties directly into the reordering process, which either should be automated or streamlined to ensure that a customers’ products are always available and replenished in a timely fashion.

eCommerce solutions often find an elegant solution to this problem, either with point of contact digital systems or with an entirely automated digital servicing platform which eliminates the need for costly service reps.

However, there is something to be said for human interactions in a b2b wholesale environment. At Dure Foods, we believe in a high-touch approach to communication which builds trust and longer lasting relationships.

2) Digital Catalogues may be the key to effective B2B wholesale.

It is clear that an eCommerce platform allows for a broad spectrum of advanced features which may limit clerical errors, increase efficiency, and promote business.

Nowhere is this truer than in the development of a digital catalogue. That being said, it is possible to have a digital catalogue without an eCommerce engine, and is infinitely more effective than any alternative. This is because there are a litany of new and interesting products available that can interface with your digital catalogue.

Additionally, there are great white label development tools which can handle your catalogue for you. This means additional reduced logistical costs, and more advanced bookkeeping.

Finally, having a digital catalogue can help take a small b2b wholesale venture to the next level. Making your business look more professional and allowing you to spend more time on other important facets of your business, like production, expansion, and overall quality.

3) Data is king in B2B Wholesale

As with any market in today’s business arena, the presence of big data has changed to game regarding customer interaction and satisfaction.

Being able to monitor growing or shifting trends as they are occurring is a massively important feature which really has only existed over the past decade. Though analytics as a concept has been around for ages, it has never been so effective at bridging the disparate customer qualities which are essential to meeting a need.

Factors such as geography, business size, order habits, are all easily accessible based on analytical tools which can be easily integrated into your online portfolio.
