Got milk? Er, I refer you to my lawyer.
I was brought up on raw milk and drank lots of it. We probably didn't start drinking store bought, pasteurized milk until I was about seven or eight. I still love milk...except skimmed milk...that's a liquid that doesn't deserve the label "milk".
Why should no one over four drink milk?
How about "Soylent milk"?
P.S. - It's people
Moo Milk = Milk
Soy Milk = Silk
Goat Milk = Gilk (this is the noise most folks make when drinking it)
Sheep Milk = Shilk (pronounced She-ilk. Here in the south, that would be: "She-ilk! Your mother make you drink that?")
Buffalo Milk = Bilk (appropriate if you didn't buy this as mozzarella)
Almond Milk = Almilk (difficult to distinguish from aluminum milk)
People Milk = Pilk (it has to be called People milk as anything else is profiling...and "Hilk" just sounds like someone retching).
Zebra Milk = Zilk (if you used German it would be "zilch" but the FDA refuses to regulate empty boxes).
From the Dept. of Redundancy Dept.: breast milk? Where else are you gonna get it?
Back to reality: I'm lactose intolerant...but anything similar gives me similar problems. Almond Milk and Soy Milk give me the same problems. Yogurt and cheese do not. Go figure.
Never could figure this one out.
Skim ? That’s was the rinse water out of the bulk tank.
I don't consume soy milk. Growing boobs is not on my list of things to do in 2018. On a different note, I was in a grocery store looking for almond milk, and when I found it, I was amazed at how expensive it was. A store employee was next to me, and he commented, "Yeah. I don't understand why it costs so much. It all comes from the same cow."
I'll settle for this:
We always called it "Leapfrogmilk". In high-school we had another name for it...
Yup, government and big business have been "milking" us for years, and they don't care what color we are . lol
Thread needs some tunes!
Is this some kinda proud boys BS?
Seriously though, do these dummies know that all mammals produce milk?
I like cows so don't get me wrong.... as a kid onna farm we milked three herds twice a day , all the atr was real alfalfa/hay homegrown straight from the field, no Nutritional additives (steroids et al)
we also had a goat that I would milk by hand.
The FDA Needs to go skinny dipping in the holding pen after the third herd has departed having been feed green alfalfa.
Much as I hate to spoil the fun, he's probably right. There will be written standards for 'Milk' that manufacturers must comply with to be able to place products on the market. Those standards are aimed at ensuring the product is safe and fit for human consumption. At a guess, it will say things like animals must be individually identified and records kept of any drugs or medicines given, to prevent the medicines or byproducts passing into the supply chain through the milk. Clearly, you can't do that with an almond or a soy bean and so, as an enforcement agency, they have been letting it slide - even though they are sold as 'milk'.
Knowing how glacially the FDA moves on just about any subject, the current standards are probably from a time when milk=cows and all this newfangled nonsense about milk from plants and the like wasn't even thought of. Therefore his point that the standards are not being enforced because they are out-of-step with the modern world and those standards therefore need to be updated is absolutely correct. Meanwhile, the journalist is busy misunderstanding things as hard as possible to make a bigger story out of it than 'ancient bureaucracy recognised by bureaucrat as needing updating'.
The thing is, the regulation is going to restrict it to cow's milk. Folks have been selling goat's milk, for example, for just as long. Sounds like one lobby had the most money.
tomato : vegetable :: almond drink : milk
Biologically speaking, a tomato is a fruit. However, common parlance has dictated that a tomato is a vegetable at least as far back as 1893 (Nix v. Hedden).
Is it still a milkshake if ... er ...
It all went wrong when they tried to sell bad milk as butter milk.
Another thing to throw out there - 'Milk' as in cow's milk is an allergen, and products containing such must be labelled accordingly. Almonds are also an allergen, and products containing such must be labelled accordingly. What happens if you call them both 'Milk'?
Good Food Institute guy gets it, I think. "...the term “milk” should be permitted with modifiers for nondairy drinks." - which pretty much happens anyway, i.e. Soy Milk, Goat's Milk, etc.
BIOLOGY 101 -- Soy beans and almonds are flora and do NOT have teats; goats are fauna and do have teats.
