    I just bought milk that is not homoginized or pasturized the other day. I didn't know this existed, nor did I know anything about milk. This website came from the stand I bought the milk from. Interesting stuff... The stand has butter along the same lines as the milk and it really makes a difference in flavor when cooking.

    I get it from the farmers market. It's technically illegal so they get around that by selling you a share in the cow and paying you dividends in milk. However the unpasteurized milk I've gotten lacks the rich, "milky" taste of the organic milk that I buy from the supermarket.

    isn't unpasteurized milk kind of risky?

    and if a cow laughs, does milk come out of its nose?

    I never understood how a bull can produce milk to be made into cheese.

    That's what I used to think but apparently it's not true anymore. That's why I posted the website.

    Yes, but if you use modern equipment AND pasteurization, isn't that better than just using modern equipment?

    Cows have horns, they just remove them because sometimes they hurt other cows or their children with them.

    not really. but i am involved in a little firm that produces soymilk. as i understand it, we can produce soymilk that tastes exactly like cow's milk, all we need are butterfat, some flavorings and a little corn oil.

    Anyone read Patrick Holford 's optimum nutrition bible? Pretty heavyweight dude, but I'm kind of coming around to his opinion that Milk is for cows and not humans and that drinking it is ultimately bad for your system.

    dr. spock also strongly discouraged parents from giving their kids cows milk.
