    The Australian media, milk companies and citizens are currently getting worked up about permeates (basically liquids removed from and the re-added to milk.)

    Just wondering if we're the country interested in this topic?

      I did a search, and there's a company in Idaho that makes permeate. That being the case, doesn't it make sense that it's in US milk, too? The description is that it's greenish liquid waste from the production of cheese, and that it's mostly lactose. It makes milk cheaper by the quart.

      Glad I don't drink milk, but it looks like it's in a lot of other dairy products, too. Everything from cream to ice cream. Gag .... retch......

      Wrylit, sounds like a great hub in the works.
