Lovely and creamy


I have just started using this milk and find it fantastic. Made oatmeal this morning and it was soooo creamy and delicious. I will continue to buy it and highly recommend you try it.

Purchased in March 2019 for $3.00.

ok overall


Good tasting milk for the benefits it gives, although, yes, a tad expensive one could argue! It's a unique product for what it claims to do



It is great


I have a problem with the cartons leaking all the time, have to put paper towel under them in the fridge at all times.
I have a fridge in my car and am sick of having to clean it out and put up with the smell of the milk, have to put vanilla essence in it

Probably very good, but . . . expensive




I am asking if maybe this milk could be put into a bottle, instead of a carton, as I have developed arthritis I am having great trouble opening the carton.

It works


When I was told that for the sake of my health I needed to lower my Cholesterol level I made Dairy Farmewrs Heart Active part of my diet.

Well my current Cholesterol levels confirm it was a good decision.

As for the product apart from being a little more expensive than regular milk I have no other complaints.

Coles has it on special regularly at $2.50 a litre, in fact I am at a loss to understand why they don't make it the regular price.

Dairy Farmers Heart Active tastes good even in coffee, has a long shelf life when kept refrigerated correctly meaning when on special you can stock till the next Coles special offering.

It you value your heart make this milk part of your healthy Cholesterol lowering diet.

yes, there is a tasty low fat milk


I started using Heart Active milk when I found out my cholesterol was too high. While other low fat milks always tasted very watery, Heart Active milk had a full cream milk-like taste, so the changeover was quite painless. My cholesterol dropped back to normal after making various dietary changes, incl the change of milk.

Problems with opening the carton


Just recently I have had problems with opening the carton, I have been trying to open the right side but it is tearing and so when you pour it spills everywhere . There is no problem with the milk .I didn't know whether other customers are having the same problem.

I love this stuff.


I have a weakness for creamy milk, and when someone mentioned to me this Heart Active is creamy tasting I had to try it. Never gone back since.
I don't particularly care for the cholesterol benefits, I drink it for the taste. One of the best tasting milks I've tried, and I drink many different varieties of it. I'd never have guessed it's almost no fat, it tastes full cream. I like this stuff so much sometimes I buy 4 cartons and chug them in almost a day.
Very happy I came across Heart Active, I'll keep buying it as long as it's available :)



It's Great!!!


I drink 600 mls everyday and my cholesterol has gone from 6.5 to 5.5 in 3 months. It tastes great.
I drink it for breakfast and add 2 tablespoons of (German) lecithin granules and a tablespoon of Bioglan SuperFoods MultiGreens with cacoa... tastes very nice!!!

Pretty ordinary milk - then it threw a curve ball by delivering me a 'thing'...


Best low fat milk.


This milk really works. Having heart active milk with my muesli Along with excersize and low fat diet my cholesterol has come down from 6.9 to 4. I have heart active milk twice a day and proactive margarine. This stuff really works it also tastes good. I've also been eating lots of good fats like avocado and salmon.



Extremely poor batch


Texture excessively thin, Tastes so salty even ginger nut biscuits and coffee do not hide the revolting taste. I have been using this product now over 12 months against my preference for full body milk, BUT if it is going to poison me with salt you can forget it. The product is pushed as a healthy item BUT if people rely on it for that then that is what IT MUST BE.
was helping to control my cholesterol
undrinkable, and possibly harming me with exess salt

Not Happy with the product


I have been drinking Heart Active Milk for over 2 years and my cholesterol has RISEN from 5 to 7.5. So I am not happy with your product.I eat a healthy, balanced diet and could not believe it when my last blood test came back with a higher cholesterol reading, I will now have to have medication to lower it.
did not lower the cholesterol in fact it increased



Excellent product


The milk taste really good. My cholesterol as come down after i started to use HeartActive. I have been using it for the last 2 years. It would have been better if the price of the product would have been cheaper. At $2.90 for a litter of milk makes it really expensive.
Very Expensive

My doctor asked me how I did it!


Last March my total colesterol was 5. When tested last week (27th July) the reading for total colesterol was 2.5 My doctor genuinely wanted to know what I had done. I told him the only dietary change was that I had changed to Heart Active. The reason for the change in the first place was that I just wanted to try something different. I am blessed in two ways, 1) I really enjoy the taste and 2) the dramatic drop of total colesterol.
It's a great product.
the best value for money

Can you cook with heart milk, or does heating to boiling point change the nature of the plant sterols and reduce the cholesterol-lowering benefits?

Also have you thought of producing lactose free heart milk - I am lactose intolerant and trying to reduce my cholesterol
