We would just like to tell you that we do not use permeate

A couple of months back I had a little rant about permeate in milk.  It was in response to a story that had broken in the Australian press about how a lot of Australian milk has permeate added to it secretly.  Permeate is just a fancy name for whey which is what’s left of the milk when they make cheese.  It’s healthy and safe but when I, and from the ensuing furore most people, buy milk we want whole milk not bits left over from cheese processing.

And it seems the media  and the all the resulting shouting have had an impact.  I went to the supermarket last weekend and this is what I saw at the milk fridge….
