Did you know that ...
●South Australians has the highest consumption of
flavored milk per person.
●Chocolate-flavored milk has been sold for the
longest time followed by other flavors to improve
taste ... and sales.
●Milkmen that come in the morning originally
delivered milk in milk bottles.
Soon milk cartons and carton "bricks," plastic
bottles, and smaller, resealable bottles that fit in
car cup holders replaced the glass bottles.
●In 2003, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
approved a milk protein spray, which is sprayed onto
raw beef to prevent infections from Salmonella and
Escherichia coli bacteria. The spray contains lactoferrin, a natural chemical found in milk that
protects calves (and babies) from getting sick.
●Full-cream milk contains about 3.25 percent fat.
Low-fat or semi-skimmed milk has half the fat of
full cream milk ( 1.5 percent to 1.8 percent fat).
Fat-free or skimmed milk has, at
most, 0.1 percent fat.
