    Default Would you drink it? Cold pressed raw milk

    Ok so I just saw the below article. Hoping the link works!

    http://m.smh.com.au/business/consume...01-gp8r76.html

    Would you drink it?

    I certainly wouldn't currently being almost 28 weeks pregnant I'd be too worried. I also wouldn't give it to DS2 (3.5). BUT if I wasn't pregnant I would definitely give it a try.

    That said I worry about the lack of information that has been published about the process of cold pressing the milk and I guess I don't understand enough about it.

    Really interested to hear others thoughts. If any NSW hubbers do try it (goes on sale today - I expect it will sell like hot cakes) I'd love to hear from you!

    We drink raw cow, goat and buffalo milk and have for the past 4 years. We buy it direct from the farmer in central London (at the farmers market).
    It isn't cold pressed just raw and unprocessed - if I was in Australia I would try this

    If I was a milk drinker I probably would as it would be better for you in its raw state but I can't stand the taste of milk ! ( DH and DS are the same)

    Apparently it tastes quite different. I know I don't like the taste of homogenised milk which is (one of the reasons) I only buy unhomogenised. There is a very different taste and mouth feel.

    I wonder if this method would make a difference for you (DH & DS) 😊

    I spent 10 years as a child in Nowra so we regularly drank raw milk purchased direct from the farmer. My Opa had a farm near Berry and we used to help him milk his cow. I actually remember him pointing a tear at our mouths and squirting it in lol

    I don't drink milk anyway, but I welcome new research into safe ways of raw milk being available for consumption. Raw milk is just milk as it comes from the cow, before its pasteurised (heat treated to kill bacteria). Unfortunately it's not only the bad bacteria that is killed in the process. DH grew up on a dairy farm and they drank milk straight from the cow all the time. Everyone did once upon a time.

    It's obviously different when something is mass produced and made available to the consumer market. Safety is paramount. However, raw milk is available in other western countries and it's only a matter of time before its available here in one way or another. I hope this cold pressed method is safe as it would be good to have that option.

    Bath milk (raw milk sold under the assumption people won't drink it but bathe in it - cr@p - of course they're drinking it! Loophole!) is available now and plenty of people demand it. So why not bring a safer alternative to the market.

    Unsure how I feel about feeding it to my kids at this point. I would definitely consider it.

    I don't think i would, unless there was a huge point to drinking it, but i don't think there is for us, plus i have tried raw milk on the farm, and it's definitely not to my taste. It tastes a lot different to me
