Milk, Homogenised

This was invented in the U.S.A. to solve a marketing problem.

When cream was separated from whole milk, the skimmed milk didn"t sell well. So unsalted (sweet) butter was brought into the East from Midwestern dairy states, which had a surplus butter problem, and this fat was put back into the skimmed milk under high pressure.

In the U.S.A. it"s often now impossible to find "whole" milk.
