What is all this hype about Raw Milk? And what exactly makes it so special?
In short term, raw milk is milk in it's natural, unadulterated state- in this case from the cow. It has not been homogenized or pasteurized.
Naturally, the cream, or fat, in milk separates and rises above the "skim", or protein. Homogenization is a mechanical mixing process that reduces the size of fat globules, so that they do not separate from the protein and thus give the milk a more uniform look. It has not been proven that this poses any adverse health effects, but now you can't skim the cream off the top like I do for my coffee ;)
