Thanks to their grit, strength and gentle character, the Ragusan donkeys were a popular means of transport, as well as heroic companions of the Italian mountain infantry during the Great War. With the advent of motor vehicles, these animals seemed to be bound to oblivion. That until Christian, moved by his passion for animals, left his job to be in communion with nature. He left behind the city to donkeys members of his family, to be treated with infinite love since their birth.
The well-being of donkeys is the highest priority. Each stage of their pregnancy is associated with a diet specifically designed to provide the donkeys with the substances they need. The delivery takes place in special rooms, where the donkey moms are assisted and provided with every comfort. The cubs stay with the mother until they are weaned, without unnatural and/or traumatic separations. Even milking takes place only after weaning, so as not to take away the milk the cubs need.
Milk is processed as soon as it is milked and then refrigerated until it quickly reaches the constant temperature of 3.5 ° C, and finally pasteurized. At this point, milk can either keep its liquid form, bottled and intended for food consumption. Or it can be atomized, or turned into a powder with more water than normal lyophilized milk. In this Spray Dry form, every single particle contains the maximum concentration of lysozyme and lactoferrin, powerful natural antibiotics and allies of your beauty.
With its sweet flavor and an aftertaste of almond, donkey milk is traditionally known for its high digestibility and its non-allergenic properties. But it is also an excellent skin moisturizer and a powerful antibiotic, while colostrum has repairing properties. In addition, Christian’s milk also has a secret ingredient: the love for his donkeys, to which he dedicates every attention. A love contained in every single drop of milk, which you will feel when you try any Argento Bianco product.
