Fairlife Light Ice Cream

When you were younger, did you ever think ahead to being an adult and being able to &#;do whatever you want&#;?

I used to think along those lines, but even my adolescent hopefulness couldn&#;t have predicted the pure joy in buying every single flavor of a new ice cream release because I was &#;supposed to&#; for a product review. That was my reality when I found the new seven-flavor lineup of Fairlife Light Ice Cream.

You&#;re probably familiar with Fairlife from its presence in the fluid dairy aisle. Its most significant point of difference is the use of and direct-to-consumer sale of ultra-filtered (UF) milk, which is, in my opinion, as a dairy scientist, VERY NEAT.

Ultra-filtered milk is simply milk that has been passed through a membrane that separates out some of the water, lactose, and small minerals. What&#;s left is milk that is higher in protein and has much less lactose. Fairlife also does other super nifty things like adding lactase enzymes to its chocolate milk which breaks lactose into glucose and galactose, which together can be as sweet as sugar, so the chocolate milk needs less added sugar to be just as sweet! Science can be delicious! Okay, with all of that said, let&#;s bring it back to performance because it doesn&#;t matter how clever your ice cream is if it doesn&#;t deliver on taste.

Cookies &#; Cream

Fairlife Light Ice Cream Cookies Cream

I chose to start with Cookies &#; Cream because I think it&#;s a crowd-pleasing favorite. The Fairlife version lived up to expectations. The cookies were chocolatey and soft, and the pieces weren&#;t skimpy. The vanilla had a nice flavor as well, but I did think the texture overall was a little icy and it could have been more creamy and melty. But considering these are light ice creams, I wasn&#;t shocked.

Double Fudge Brownie

Fairlife Light Ice Cream Double Fudge Brownie

I&#;m always a little wary when &#;light&#; versions of products shoot for flavors like Double Fudge Brownie. In the case of Fairlife, I think this flavor is fine, but not amazing. The chocolate ice cream was decent. It&#;s like their chocolate milk, but frozen. The brownie pieces were surprisingly good. They were soft and pillowy, sort of like a Fiber One brownie.

The fudge sauce was not for me. It had a very harsh acidic canned chocolate syrup flavor that didn&#;t mesh well with the sweetness level in the ice cream. Keep the brownies, lose the fudge swirl.

Chocolate and Vanilla

Fairlife Light Ice Cream Chocolate

Fairlife Light Ice Cream Vanilla

Honestly, the staple flavors were a little icy, but pretty good. The Vanilla had little flecks of vanilla bean and the Chocolate flavor was mild, but pleasant. With more fat, the chocolate would have been more luscious. I&#;d accept a scoop of either as my à la mode any day. Especially considering a serving of the vanilla is basically the nutritional equivalent of a glass of 2% milk with a little sugar. Keep your expectations level, folks.

Chocolate Peanut Butter

Fairlife Light Ice Cream Chocolate Peanut Butter

The Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor was my only huge letdown. There is no peanut butter in this product. There is only added peanut flavor. I get that these are light ice creams, so maybe you can&#;t add peanut butter, but in that case, maybe don&#;t make this flavor at all? The pieces of chocolate flakes were mildly redeeming, but overall this one was pretty rough.

Java Chip

Fairlife Light Ice Cream Java Chip

It was GREAT. Again, this is clearly lower fat than other ice creams, but for some reason, I didn&#;t notice that as much in this coffee version. The chocolate flakes, much like in the peanut butter version, are nice. They break down and aren&#;t waxy. Slow melt, but I really liked the coffee flavor in this one.

Mint Chip

Fairlife Light Ice Cream Mint Chip

Ahh, mint chip. You can&#;t go wrong with mint chip. Minty flavor makes everything seem refreshing. Would a full fat mint chip melt better and taste better? Yeah. But this ain&#;t bad. I would love a mint chip ice cream sandwich made with this.

Overall:

Fairlife Light Ice Cream POWER BOWL

Overall, it&#;s no surprise these light ice creams made from ultra-filtered milk deliver a slightly inferior texture to full-fat regular ice cream, but that&#;s par for the course in the rapidly expanding world of light ice creams.

Set these bad boys on the counter for five minutes before you scoop and they do pretty well. I also still think UF milk and some of the techniques used at Fairlife are really interesting. I would buy Java Chip, Mint Chip, Vanilla, or Cookies &#; Cream again for SURE. But I don&#;t care much for the flavor trade-offs when you get to flavors like Chocolate Peanut Butter that doesn&#;t have any actual peanut butter.

Fairlife Dairy products pulled from store shelves amid animal abuse controversy

Grocers across the Midwest are pulling products distributed by a popular milk brand from store shelves after a shocking video, which revealed consistent abuse of calves at a major Indiana dairy farm, was released on social media this week.

The graphic footage taken from inside the dairy operations at Fair Oaks Farms, which is owned by the founder of the dairy company Fairlife (stylized as fa!rlife), was made public after an undercover investigation was conducted by the non-profit animal rights' group Animal Recovery Mission (ARM).

“These are really the last true concentration camps left on planet Earth,” Richard Couto, the founder of ARM, told NBC 5 Chicago on Wednesday.

“Employees were observed slapping, kicking, punching, pushing, throwing and slamming calves. Calves were stabbed and beaten with steel rebars, hit in the mouth and face with hard plastic milking bottles, kneed in the spine, burned in the face with hot branding irons, subjected to extreme temperatures, provided with improper nutrition, and denied medical attention,” ARM said in a statement accompanying the video that was posted on Facebook and Vimeo.

“This resulted in extreme pain and suffering by the calves, and in some cases permanent injury and even death.”

How was the animal abuse discovered?

ARM, which was established in , describes itself as a “vanguard not-for-profit organization, dedicated to eliminating extreme animal cruelty operations worldwide.” The group, which promotes plant-based lifestyles, said that the footage was taken by an undercover investigator who recorded the animal abuse in while working at Fair Oaks Farms, which is roughly 75 miles south of Chicago.

The group says the investigator worked at the farm, which has previously been a popular site for school field trips and group tours, for several months. ARM also says that it did not set out to target Fair Oaks, but rather had its investigator apply to several farms in the area. The Fairlife supplier in Indiana was the first to offer a position.

Why stores are pulling Fairlife products

After the footage was posted on Tuesday and received fierce backlash from hundreds of commenters, food markets and convenience stores — including Jewel-Osco (which is the largest grocery store chain in Chicago), Tony’s Fresh, Casey's and Family Express — began removing Fairlife products from dairy fridges.

“At Jewel-Osco we strive to maintain high animal welfare standards across all areas of our business, and work in partnership with our vendors to ensure those standards are upheld,” a spokesperson for the grocery chain told TODAY Food. “We apologize for any inconvenience.”

Tony’s Express, which is also based in the Chicago metro area, said it will no longer carry Fairlife products “in light of the devastating news.”

“Thank you for voicing your concerns. We truly appreciate your understanding,” a spokesperson for the company said in a statement to the Chicago-Sun Times.

Indiana-based convenience store chain Family Express announced it would be replacing Fairlife products with similar items made by Organic Valley, a private company which is owned by a co-op of local farmers because, according to the chain, “Organic Valley treats animals differently.”

“The exposé of animal abuse in the Fair Oaks Farm network is chilling," a Family Express spokesperson said in a statement. "A factor in our decision was the public response by Fair Oaks, asserting the notion that this was an isolated incident. This is hardly the response you would expect from an organization that gets it. The minimizing of the graphic animal cruelty offers little assurance of change in a culture that is likely in need of fundamental retooling."

How has Fairlife responded?

In the wake of the controversy following the video's release, Fair Oaks Farms' founder Mike McCloskey announced that his company will be taking “full responsibility” and is “putting actions in place to ensure this never happens again.” On Wednesday, Fairlife LLC, which is distributed by the Coca-Cola Company in the U.S., announced that it had suspended all milk deliveries from the Fair Oaks Farms dairy farm identified in the video. McCloskey stated that less than 5% of his company’s milk supply originates at the Indiana farm seen in the video.

On its website, the company posted a statement acknowledging that the animal abuse did indeed occur and that its current farming practices had "failed" to meet its advertised standards, adding, "There is no excusing this behavior. It is wrong. It is not what we stand for, and we are committed to fixing this and moving forward together."

“Many of you have reached out to express your disappointment, heartbreak and anger regarding the videos released yesterday and we want you to know that we share those same feelings,” the company posted on Facebook.

McCloskey also released his own personal video statement, in which he addressed ARM's video and discusses his plan of action.

“As a veterinarian whose life and work is dedicated to the care, comfort and safety of all animals, this has affected me deeply," McCloskey said. "I am disappointed for not being aware of this kind of awful treatment occurring and I take full responsibility for what has happened." He said that four employees of the farm who were identified in the video have been terminated as a result of their actions and face possible criminal prosecution for violating animal care practices.

McCloskey said the video shines a light on the fact that his company needs to improve its employee onboarding procedures and overall commitment to animal welfare. He added that he wished ARM would have brought the video to light sooner, rather than waiting several months after the investigation was complete, in order to address the issues in a timely manner.

“I have personally reached out to ARM’s founder, Richard Couto, to discuss a more symbiotic relationship but he has yet to reach back,” he said.

Fans of Fairlife are shocked

Fair Oaks Farms was founded in by McCloskey (a veterinarian), who later joined with a larger co-op of dairy farmers to form the company that would become Fairlife in Since its founding, Fairlife has advertised itself as believing that "exceptional cow care and sustainable farming practices yield higher quality milk," and celebrated its eco-friendly methods, like turning cow manure into biofuel for its trucks. Over the years, company marketing materials often touted Fairlife farmers' ethical treatment of calves and dairy cows, saying they were "spoiled" from the start.

Fairlife's signature product is an "ultra-filtered," lactose-free milk that contains 50% more protein and 30% more calcium than most dairy milks. But, in many markets, it also costs about twice as much as the average milk — regardless of fat content. Other products include protein shakes and drinkable "snacks" with oats.

Coca-Cola, which has distributed Fairlife products across the country since , also released a statement.

"At The Coca-Cola Company, we take animal welfare very seriously. We expect our suppliers to operate with the highest degree of integrity and comply with all laws, including animal welfare laws," Coca-Cola said Wednesday. "We have been in contact with fairlife about this situation and have full confidence in their management team to urgently address this issue with Fair Oaks Farms, which is a third-party supplier to fairlife."

The company said it plans to visit the 30 other dairies that currently supply Fairlife and will conduct independent, third-party audits over the next 30 days “to verify all animal husbandry practices at the farms, including all training, management and auditing practices. We will also continue to work with Fair Oaks Farms to ensure specific actions are taken to address this situation and uphold our high standards for animal care."

The Newton County Sheriff’s Office of Indiana is currently investigating the incident.

“We acknowledge the need for humane treatment of animals and the need to hold individuals that have gone beyond an acceptable farm management practice accountable for their actions,” a spokesperson for the sheriff’s office told TODAY.

“We have requested the names and identifiers of those terminated for animal cruelty by Fair Oaks Dairy Farms. We will also be seeking the identity of the witness to the alleged crimes that failed to report this activity for some time.”

What Happened at Fairlife Milk? It’s Been Two Years Since the Viral Video

In June , undercover footage of appalling animal abuse at a dairy farm that supplied milk to Fairlife went viral, prompting many customers to boycott the ultrafiltered milk company that had claimed to care about animal welfare.

Now, as we come up on the two-year anniversary of the Fairlife milk animal abuse controversy, many are wondering exactly what happened at Fair Oaks Farms, why exactly people are boycotting Fairlife, and what they can do to stop animal abuse.

In case you need a refresher, here&#x;s a recap of the Fairlife investigation.

A Fairlife milk investigation revealed animal abuse at Fair Oaks Farm.

In early , an investigator from the animal rights organization Animal Recovery Mission (ARM) went undercover by getting a job as a milker at Fair Oaks Farms in Indiana, which supplies milk to Fairlife (among other companies), according to the organization. He took undercover footage of the dairy farm during his few months working there, providing ARM with undeniable evidence of inherent cruelty subjected daily to dairy cows within industrialized food production systems.  

In June , ARM published a video (warning &#x; it's brutal) of the investigator&#x;s most shocking footage, which quickly went viral. People all over the world were horrified to see evidence of such unnecessary abuse at the farm.

Employees were observed slapping, kicking, punching, pushing, throwing and slamming calves, ARM said in a statement at the time, as per TODAY. Calves were stabbed and beaten with steel rebars, hit in the mouth and face with hard plastic milking bottles, kneed in the spine, burned in the face with hot branding irons, subjected to extreme temperatures, provided with improper nutrition, and denied medical attention."

"This resulted in extreme pain and suffering by the calves, and in some cases permanent injury and even death," the statement continued.

As ARM noted, both Fair Oaks Farms and Fairlife have built their brands around animal welfare. Ensuring that the animals who provide fairlife dairy products are cared for and cared about is a top priority for fairlife, reads Fairlife&#x;s website, while Fair Oaks Farms claims to be "committed to caring for our animals."

Claims like these inspire people to choose these products, because they believe that they are better. However, this footage was a wake-up call to dairy consumers everywhere.

Customers responded by boycotting Fairlife milk.

Soon after the footage came out, many consumers vowed to boycott Fairlife, and buy milk from other dairy brands instead. Others boycotted dairy entirely, and switched to non-dairy milk, cheese, and ice cream.

Unfortunately, the practices seen on Fair Oaks Farm are not uncommon in the dairy industry. While Fairlife&#x;s investigation went far more viral than any other undercover footage from a dairy farm has, there have been many other videos and documentaries revealing animal cruelty across the dairy industry and animal agriculture industry as a whole. 

But the most powerful move came from the midwestern grocery stores who actually stopped selling Fairlife products &#x; including Jewel-Osco, Tony&#x;s Fresh, Casey's, and Family Express, according to TODAY.

Here’s how Fairlife and the Coca-Cola Company responded to the controversy.

Fairlife is owned by the Coca-Cola Company, and the corporation responded to the undercover footage by stating that Fairlife immediately stopped sourcing milk from Fair Oaks Farms after the footage was released, and that Fairlife planned to launch an animal welfare advisory council of experts.

You can read more about the audits that Fairlife pledged to take on the brand&#x;s website; however, the brand did claim to already have governance measures in place before the investigation, so many customers may find it difficult to trust these new procedures.

ARM&#x;s Fairlife investigation proved that there is no way to truly know what is happening behind a farm's closed doors. The organization put out a few calls to action to people who were affected by the heartbreaking footage &#x; ARM asked people to sign its petition, to ask stores to stop carrying Fairlife, and to leave dairy products off their plates.

Ditching dairy is not only a good move for animal welfare, but also for the environment. A University of Oxford study found that on average, cow&#x;s milk produces about three times as many greenhouse gas emissions than vegan milks.
