Why You Should Refuel With Chocolate Milk
Low-fat chocolate milk is the original protein drink. In addition to getting the right combination of carbs and protein, research suggests low-fat chocolate milk is a naturally nutrient-rich protein drink that helps you refuel and rehydrate within the critical two-hour recovery window after exercise.
Chocolate milk may be just as effective as certain commercial sport drinks in helping athletes refuel muscles after a workout. In fact, an Indiana University study found that endurance-trained cyclists who drank low-fat chocolate milk after an intense period of cycling were able to workout longer and have more power during a second workout compared to when the same athletes drank a commercially available carbohydrate replacement drink.
Drinking low-fat chocolate milk after exercise not only provides the carbohydrates and protein needed to refuel and repair muscles, it also helps replenish fluids and electrolytes (such as calcium, magnesium and potassium) that are lost in sweat. In fact, milk is 90 percent water. Research suggests milk may be especially effective as a post-exercise rehydration drink due to its unique mix of nutrients.
- Building Muscle
Milk contains high-quality protein and essential amino acids that may be particularly beneficial in building and maintaining muscle mass when combined with exercise. Several recent studies suggest low-fat milk after exercise can help increase lean muscle
- Repairing Muscle
Exercise-induced muscle damage can lead to future impairments in muscle performance, which could affect future exercise bouts. A study conducted in the U.K. found that those who drank reduced-fat regular or flavored milk after a strenuous muscle workout experienced less exercise-induced muscle damage than those who drank water or typical sport drinks.
- Maintaining BMI
A new study released in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that children who drink flavored or plain milk consume more nutrients and have a lower or comparable body mass index (BMI – a measure of body fatness) than children who don’t drink milk.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where does Shamrock Farms milk come from?
Shamrock Farms’ herd of more than 10,000 traditional and organic cows is housed at their farm in Stanfield, Arizona – just 54 miles from their Phoenix dairy processing plant. These cows are milked twice daily, and their insulated trucks transport an average of 47,000 gallons of farm-fresh milk to their processing plant every day.
Shamrock Farms products hit store shelves quickly, typically within one to two days, making their dairy products truly farm-fresh.
What makes Shamrock Farms cows so special?
Their cows are special because they are family and they treat them with great attention and respect. The Shamrock Farms culture is built upon the idea that healthy, happy cows produce the best-tasting dairy. They believe it’s thier responsibility to provide the best possible care for thier herd and do such through thier state-of-the art facilities and well-trained staff that ensures the cows receive nutritious diets, healthy living conditions, good medical care and are never treated with the growth hormone rBST. For more information, click here.
Are Shamrock Farms products hormone-free?
It is impossible for any milk product to be hormone-free. All cows naturally produce a hormone called BST. So if you are asking if Shamrock Farms uses artificial growth hormones or rBST on thier herd of 10,000 cows, they don’t. In fact, they pledge not to treat thier cows with the growth hormone rBST. Never have. Never will.
Is Shamrock Farms milk homogenized and why isn’t it stated on packaging?
Yes, all of Shamrock Farms products are homogenized except for thier heavy cream. Homogenization breaks down and blends milk and cream to give one uniform product. Non-homogenized products experience a separation of the cream, resulting in “cream on the top.” Heavy cream does not go through the homogenization process because the only ingredient in heavy cream is cream (nothing needs to be blended).
Because homogenization is standard practice in the U.S. and labeling products as homogenized is not required by law, they choose to dedicate labeling space to communicate other important product attributes such as thier milk being free of the growth hormone rBST.
How long do Shamrock Farms products last after the expiration date?
They guarantee the freshness of thier dairy for a full seven days past the code date on the package when stored under proper conditions (approximately 38 degrees Fahrenheit). Once a dairy product has been opened, however, they recommend that it is fully enjoyed within seven days of opening and regardless of code date.
How can milk have an extended expiration date of up to 90 days?
Shamrock Farms uses a process called ultra-pasteurization – or extended shelf life (ESL) – to produce thier single-serve milks, Essentials and Half & Half (32 oz. size and smaller). This simply means the milk is heated to 285º F for four seconds, as opposed to traditional pasteurization, where the milk is heated to at least 170º F for a minimum of 20 seconds.
As a result of this process and thier airtight safety seal, thier milk stays fresh on the shelves for much longer. And this ESL process has no effect on its taste or contents. In fact, the only thing they add in some of thier milks are the vitamin fortifications you read on the label.
Remember, as with all of thier farm-fresh dairy products, once you remove the freshness seal, they recommend you enjoy thier milk within seven days.
Can I freeze any Shamrock Farms products?
For both safety and quality reasons, they do not recommend freezing any of thier products (except for thier premium ice creams and frozen novelties, of course). Their packaging is not suited for freezing, and they cannot guarantee that the product will remain at their standard of quality after freezing. The process of freezing, as well as keeping the product after its expiration date, might cause the texture, composition or taste of the product to change.
Does Shamrock Farms offer milk fortified with extra calcium?
Yes. They offer Shamrock Farms Calcium Plus milk - a line of farm-fresh, great-tasting calcium fortified milk that provides 100% more calcium per 8-oz serving than regular milk to make it easy for families to get the calcium they need. And, Calcium Plus is offered in the innovative Smart Fit Bottle, a 96-oz value size that’s easy to carry, pour and store.
Shamrock Farms also offers Fat Free Plus mmmmilk – milk fortified with extra calcium and available in 12- and 32-oz sizes.
Is Shamrock Farms flavored mmmmilk HFCS-free?
Yes! In response to consumer wants and needs, Shamrock Farms recently converted its flavored mmmmilk line – including sizes 8-32 fl.oz. – to be formulated without the use of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
All Shamrock Farms flavored mmmmilk is now formulated without the use of HFCS, and still delivers all the flavor, freshness, nutritional benefits and value their milk is known for.

Is it OK for me to consume beverages out of Shamrock Farms’ plastic packaging?
Product safety and quality are their top priorities. As such, Shamrock Farms uses the safest plastic options available for its packaging, including HDPE (No. 2) for bottles and PP (No. 5) plastic for tub containers. Neither of these types of plastic has been indicated as leaching harmful chemicals or hormones such as BPA.
Are Shamrock Farms’ containers recyclable?
Shamrock Farms’ paperboard and gallon-milk containers are 100 percent recyclable. Also, they use only 100 percent recyclable HDPE for their extended shelf life plastic packaging.

A rich heritage. A proud tradition.
Like so many Irish immigrants before him, W.T. McClelland saw America as a land where dreams came true, and hard work and perseverance were rewarded. It was simple virtues like these that led W.T. and his wife, Winifred, to start the Shamrock Dairy in Tucson with only 20 cows, a Model T delivery truck and one route man delivering fresh milk to the doorsteps of local customers.
Today, 90 years later, their dream lives on in Shamrock Farms Dairy. As one of the largest family-owned and operated dairies in the U.S., they are a company with a continuing commitment to provide their customers with only the finest products and service.
"My parents had faith that if you treated your employees like family, and your customers like friends, you would succeed. They’re a multimillion-dollar company now, but they're still managed by the same principles."
- Norman McClelland
CEO, Shamrock Foods
Customer satisfaction is a family tradition.
Thanks to generations of loyal employees and customers, Shamrock Farms has become the successful dairy it is today. And just as they rely on their customers, they can continue to rely on us for superior farm-fresh products and an unconditional guarantee of satisfaction. Their continued commitment to such ideals, and to the community, ensures that Shamrock Farms will remain a proud and respected brand throughout the country.
Their tradition of product excellence begins with their farm-fresh milk. But, naturally, they take equal pride in all their other dairy products, too. Their cottage cheese, fresh sour cream, heavy cream and eggnog have been favorites for years.

Family-Owned. Real Fresh Idea-Inspired. Roxie-Represented.
You know that dairy is important for your family. But why should you choose Shamrock Farms dairy? Well, they think it all goes back to the farm.
Shamrock Farms is a real, state-of-the-art dairy farm where their herd of over 10,000 milking cows produce the freshest, best-tasting milk you’ll ever find. Because they treat their cows with the utmost care, they produce the highest quality milk. It’s fresher and tastes better. And, since milk is the core ingredient to all of their dairy—sour cream, cottage cheese, creams and more—it’s really important to take good care of their milk cows. From the time they collect it from their happy, productive cows, to the time they process and package and ship it out to stores, they work harder to provide milk faster, colder, and fresher than any you can buy. They call it “farm-to-table freshness,” and it means a better dairy product for your family.
That’s a big deal, because dairy is such an important part of your daily diet. Milk is good for you, wholesome and nutritious. Grownups need it as much as kids do. It’s much better for you than sugary sodas or snack foods. It builds strong bones, supports lean muscle, and helps you maintain an active lifestyle. They want to make sure families are including nutritious and delicious dairy products in their diets, so their farm is committed to providing the very best-quality milk in the whole world!
