Should organic (not raw) milk do this???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So i bought some organic grass fed cows milk from whole foods store and even though what I realllly want is raw milk, the nearest place to get it is 45 min away.

When i got home and poured some milk, there were a lot of chunks that fell into the cup. The milk still smells really good, and i think maybe it was the fat or cream or something had just risen to the top? I know this happens with raw milk (i think) but since this is pasteurized i just am not sure.

Would you drink it??

If it non-homogonized then this would be totally normal.

 

I get low-temp pasturized, non-homogonized milk from my Whole Foods & the cream is always on the top, sometimes chunky. A good shake will usually take care of the problem.

 

If it's normal, homogonized milk, then it's probably not right. But I'm hoping it's the good stuff... not quite raw milk but better than the ultra-processed stuff!

All milk will do that if it has been frozen. I have gotten milk at the store before that I know has been frozen or frozen my own and had this happen.

Yeah -- its probably not homogenized.   When I was growing up, for awhile we were getting milk that was non-homogenized (but it was pasteurized), and you have to shake it up really, really well (though the fat has a tendency to cling to the sides).

 

Did you ever pump breastmilk and see it separate over time?  It's the same deal.

I get some non-homogenized milk for DS.  It tastes soooo much better. Weird part is I am lactose intolerant but my digestive system can handle the non-homogenized, vat pasteurized stuff. shrug.gif  but...uh... I still don't like plain milk. Yay for chocolate milk. haha. yummy.gif
