Quality control

High Quality

The goat milk processed in the dairy factory is delivered by Bettinehoeve’s goat milk suppliers. For more than twenty years, Bettinehoeve has been able to count on their more than 50 milk suppliers; most of them located in the South/South-west of the Netherlands. The goat farmers put a lot of effort in keeping their stock healthy and its milk production at a high level.

Thanks to them, high quality powder from Dutch origin is available for Goat Milk Powder B.V., an important prerequisite for achieving the highest standards in goat milk powder.

Quality_Stock - Cow milk free

Cow milk-free production

During our 20 years’ experience in the goat dairy industry, cow milk contamination has always be a big concern for those who first step into the goat dairy world.

With us, you can feel assured.
Our factory, Goat Milk Powder B.V., has decided to keep itself free from cow milk. This means only goat milk and goat whey are processed in the factory.

The advantage is that the chance of having any cow milk residue in the end product has been eliminated, which is a unique selling point especially for infant nutrition application.

Food authenticity test

On top of that, we also want to make sure that only cow milk free ingredients are provided by our suppliers. Therefore, together with our partner and experts from food safety diagnostics field, we have developed and validated in 2021 new ELISA screening tests for the detection of cow’s milk, cow’s rennet whey in milk and whey from other species.

These tests are fast, easy and cost-effective methods allowing for the detection of 0.5% and more of cow’s milk or cow’s rennet whey. They are available now under the names EuroProxima Plus Cow’s Milk ELISA 5171MILK and EuroProxima Plus Cow’s Whey ELISA 5171WHEY.

If you would like to learn more about the food authenticity test, please contact us.
