Lots of us are sending our kids back to school and popping yoghurts into lunchboxes.
What is wrong with Skim Milk?
Skim milk is heavily processed, pasteurised, homogenised, separated, and often has milk solids added back to it to improve flavour (because it now tastes like crap) and is also used to improve colour and texture. It has almost no nutritional value. Full cream milk is high in important fat soluble vitamins that can only be absorbed by the body if eaten with fat (cream) Skim milk is also often sweetened with sugar to make it more palatable as the fat has been removed.
What’s wrong with Milk Solids?
Milk solids are essentially dehydrated skim milk. During the processing of milk solids, cholesterol is oxidised and toxic nitrates are formed. Proteins in milk solids are very denatured and un-recognisable.
Proteins in milk solids are very denatured and un-recognisable to the body. They are actually inflammatory.
What’s wrong with these additives?
Can cause allergic and hyper-sensitive reactions, behavioural problems, hyperactivity, skin ailments (eczema, dermatitis, itching, hives, rash), sleep disturbances.
