Remember having to do that when you were little..?
Ever wondered why we don't have to do that anymore?
Oh you know? Because it's HOMOGENISED ..
But do you know what that means for YOU?
Homogenised milk has basically had the fat particles blasted to a tenth of their original size, meaning they stay suspended in the milk, rather than rising to the top.
It's a boon for supermarkets, because the milk has a longer shelf life, but those fat particles are now small enough to pass through our intestinal walls undigested, meaning they instead build up on arterial walls. TASTY!
In fact, the whole chemical structure of the fat and protein in the milk is altered, meaning we are not getting the best of either, because our bodies essentially don't recognise the particles, and hence, don't assimilate and use them properly.
DUCHY milk is the only non-homgensied milk I can find in a UK supermarket.
So I'm glad there is a Waitrose near me!
I consider the few pence extra a worthy health investment - wouldn't you..?
