The dairy industry never ceases to amaze me how they come up with ideas to get more people drinking milk
This is one such example
I was in the supermarket yesterday and was checking out the cow milk section, (well I was actually looking to see if they stocked fresh almond milk yet … which, no, they don’t). I thought I’d have a look at all the different cow milks on offer and then I spied this one.
I actually laughed out loud. I think the couple standing next to me thought I was crackers, but I couldn’t help it.
I just find it so amusing that there is a cow milk that is designed especially for the lactose intolerant people out there …. just in case they are getting their calcium and protein from – I kid you not – PLANTS.
Take a look at the label – it also says “trim” that means they’ve taken most of the fat out as well.
So here’s a bit of info you may not know:
If you eat animal protein the body produces metabolic acidosis and the body uses calcium to fight it off.
For some reason, the less fat there is in milk, the more acidosis is formed and the more calcium is needed usually drawing it from the bones.
Dairy companies are messing around with the milk so much it is not true milk ….. here in N.Z. the large companies actually strip the milk down to milk powder and then reconstitute it into the different types. I can’t speak for other countries, but if you know how the milk is produced, please let us know in the comments below.
