    I have light and full cream in the house. It's more of a taste thing for me, I like full cream in my coffee and light in my tea

    The kids generally drink the full cream but sometimes they get light. Looking at the label my light milk has 0.2g/100ml more sugar than the full cream, not something I would worry about.

    I would be interested in learning more about the actual difference in the processing of light vs full cream though...

    In general we eat mostly whole foods in our house and not a lot of milk is consumed so i'm not too concerned about one being better than the other.

    Out of curiousity, how long does butter last for if not refrigerated (or how long does it take you to go through a block)?

    We rarely use butter/marg so I'm not sure I could get away with not putting it in the fridge.

    We rarely use it too but for when we have unexpected guests or if we buy a fresh sourdough ( which must have butter!) I buy these - they have a 6 month shelf life if kept in a pantry

    I've never had any butter go off.

    On the other hand, leave an open tub of marg in your garage for a year and apparently not even rodents or cockroaches will touch it and it will still look the same as when you put it there. Lol. Its like plastic or something?! Can't say I've tried this though!

    Just Coles brand unsalted. Not sure exactly how long it lasts, salted does last longer though.

    We only have raw dairy milk, and I have recently started to make our own cheese from the raw milk too. If anyone is interested to learn about raw dairy and it's benefits, or nutrition from a cultural point of view, I suggest looking at the the Weston A. Price Foundation website.

    I heard this on the radio the other day - the latest research on full fat dairy..
    No link between full fat dairy and cardiovasular disease, type II diabetes and obesity...
