We are the bibbers of raw milk. I was warned against it by several, but they must not know what they are talking about. Raw milk has less of a milk taste than store-bought processed stuff!! Seriously I have done the test on many a willing participant. Raw milk you ask?
According to wikipedia:
Raw milk is milk that has not been pasteurized or homogenized.
My top reason for loving raw milk (that is when we can get our hands on it!!) is that we have no lactose aversion to it. Yes, you heard me right. The boys and I are all lactose intolerants :)
Lactose intolerance is the inability to metabolize lactose, a sugar found in milk and other dairy products, because the required enzyme lactase is absent in the intestinal system or its availability is lowered. Some people also mention pasteurized dairy products as a cause (raw milk contains small amounts of lactase). It is estimated that 75% of adults show some decrease in lactase activity during adulthood worldwide. The frequency of decreased lactase activity ranges from nearly 5% in northern Europe to more than 90% in some Asian and African countries 
It is bad news let me tell ya. However raw milk (see above if you have forgotten what it is) is fine for us to drink…no problems with the digestive system. I promise you that I would know since I scramble in pain after only a spoonful of cream sauce if I do not take lactase enzyme. anyway, this post is an ode to raw milk, sweet nectar of the cows :)
