What Does Raw Milk Taste Like

What Is Raw Milk?

Raw milk refers to cow’s milk that has not been processed using pasteurisation. Some communities believe that raw milk is a healthier alternative as it contains fresh and unprocessed nutrients but the medical community warns that it can contain bacteria which can be detrimental to humans. Availability of raw milk varies based on location and in some areas of the world it’s banned, so dairy farmers cannot sell it for human consumption.

How It Tastes

Raw milk has a plainer and sweeter creamy taste than processed milk, although the taste can vary based on whether the cream has been removed and on the source.

Tips

Raw milk is often sold as ‘bath milk’ which is not for human consumption but is commonly used as a beauty treatment.
