    Default Totally scintillating milk question

    I bought some full cream Paris Milk today with use by 15/03. I opened it and the top 1/8th of the bottle is like solid milk with 'normal' milk underneath it.

    It smells fine. Is this like some fancy organic milk thing that I don't know about and I'm supposed to shake it or scrape the top off or something? I don't really want to give it to DS which sucks because I only have fat free other stuff.

    This is the 'cream'. I scoop it out and throw it away. Some people eat it as is or use in cooking. You could also shake it up, but this would leave little lumpy bits throughout your milk.

    Ok.

    I'm a little bit mortified by the fact that I didn't realise that :-) there's just so much of it.

    Right so the label says pasteurised and non-homogenised. So my next question is - is it suitable for DS then?

    I swear I have the worst luck with my milk purchases 😳 just finding full fat dairy at my woolies is a mission and a half.

    It's cream, most milk you buy undergoes a process (homogenisation) to make the cream be evenly distributed through the milk. Shake it up and it'll be fine. Warming it will help distribute the cream more.

    It'll be fine for your son, it's pasteurised so no worry about bacteria.

    You are not the only one! I think I only understand it now after the incident in the news a few months back when there was some info about pasteurisation and why it's important!

    That's the best milk ever and I scoop the cream off and eat it. It's un homogenised so cream goes to the top. Yum. I fight to open the milk first to get the cream. In homogenised is better for us as the fat molecules are still in tacked and better absorbed by the body for vitamins and minerals.

    That's how milk was when I was a kid. When the milkman bought it to your door every morning in glass bottles with silver foil lids. I'm sooooooo old!!!!!

    You mean in the days when the milk choices were red top or blue top, the price of it was controlled and you got 3c back when you returned a bottle? *sigh* I remember those days.

    I can't remember which colour it was but one of the colours always had more cream on top and if you were really lucky you could turn it upside down and the cream would hold the milk in place.
