Information about milk


Milk is the liquid that female mammals produce from their mammary glands to feed their young. The word refers to the cow's milk by default because this is the most consumed over the milk of sheep, goats, horses, asses and reindeer. 

More information: 
If consumption of milk is common in many countries, it is much less in Africa and Asia. Indeed, in some parts of the world, the ability to digest lactose is reduced and results in indigestion. 

Buying Milk: 
Cow's milk is mostly sold pasteurized, homogenized, in some cases even raw, sterilized, whole, partially skimmed milk, skimmed milk, concentrated flavored or powdered. The sale of raw milk varies by country. 

Preparation and Use: 
Milk is present in many homes. It is used for drinking and cooking, where it serves in the composition of various foods. We produce derivatives such as butter, cheese and yogurt from milk. 

Heat milk over low heat so as not to alter its flavor, texture or nutritional value. It is normal that a skin forms on the surface of the milk which is the result of protein coagulation. 

Refrigerate milk as soon as possible so that heat, oxygen and light do not affect its nutritional value. Do not put the "trot" milk used in the original container. Powdered milk can be stored in a cool dry place once opened.
