JOYYA Ultrafiltered Milk: 75% More Protein and 25% Less Lactose in Canada

Diana Chan November 27, 2018 product

Saputo launched JOYYA ultrafiltered milk, a proudly all-Canadian dairy product and next step in the superfood movement. It’s produced in Canada, by Canadians for Canadians, and offers 75% more protein and 25% less lactose (sugar) than regular milk.

I was curious to try these as my doctor told me to cut down on the sugar and increase my intake of protein due to my gestational diabetes.

No powdered protein or supplements are added to JOYYA. The ultrafiltration process concentrates larger milk components such as protein and seperates some of the lactose from the milk.

JOYYA ultrafiltered milk is available in a 1-litre format in the following varieties:

  • Skim Milk
  • Partly Skimmed Milk
  • Whole Milk
  • Chocolate Dairy beverage -Partly Skimmed

I tried the Chocolate Dairy Beverage and the Partly Skimmed Milk. Both were good and had a slightly thicker consistency. The taste was consistent with regular milk and you probably wouldn’t notice a difference if no one told you.

You can drink it straight up, have it in cereal, or in your coffee or tea.

JOYYA ultrafiltered milk can now be found at Canada’s community grocers and independent specialty stores, with more retail outlets to come.

    I have tried the 3.25% JOYYA unfiltered milk and quite enjoyed it.
    However, I am a little concerned about its” Nutrition Facts” compared to those listed for the Dairyland ‘Standard’ 3.25% milk.

    The JOYYA milk is listed as having 30% Phosphorus and 10% magnesium, but the regular 3.25% ‘Standard’ milk has neither.

    Were these elements in the original unprocessed milk, or were they added in the processing? If it is the latter, why were they added? If is the former, why were they removed?

    I tried the Joyya 2% milk and noted an odd taste . Does not taste like regular milk. A funny aftertaste . Also the chocolate milk is the same , my 2 year old also did not enjoy it like he normally does.

    However, the fairlife brand of milk was much more appealing . I assumed price and size and similarities so didn’t expect such a big taste difference .
    Would definitely go back to Fairlife filtered milk instead,

    Fairlife is not processed in Canada and not taken from Canadian dairy farmers. So, if you want to support the US dairy industry while living in Canada then Fairlife is the product for you.
