So I have biscuits which are made from cow's milk and the milk used in it is unadulterated and pure.

Which of these usages convey the above correctly?

1st: Biscuits made from pure cow's milk.
2nd: Biscuits made from cow's pure milk.

  • While the first is correct, as noted in an answer, it's probably better to say with or using instead of from, as milk is not the only ingredient

"cow's milk" is a set phrase, so you normally would not split it up. Therefore, the idiomatic way to say this is "pure cow's milk".
