In Denmark they have a mothers' milk bank, like a blood bank. All preemies are fed mother's milk unless there is some medical reason not to. The mothers' milk bank is so well stocked, that a friend of mine wanted to donate, but they already had a surplus.

My DW used to give milk to Balboa Navy Hospital, in San Diego, as she had lots of rich milk, more than our kids needed. She'd feed them at about 11:p.m., and they'd sleep till morning, from the time they came home from the hospital.

That's a blessing for premies. Mothers who can, should, IMHO. Thanks to all of you who have.

Doesn't taste good

I don't think people are terrified. It just doesn't make sense from an economic point of view. Think back through history. Most people were very poor and breast milk fed the babies for free.

I think they have one here in Ottawa--friends of mine donated when they were nursing their kids. It freezes well, and, if I recall, some was even shipped overseas.

I like my milk cold, but not ice cold. I think it tastes best if it's been sitting at room temp for 5-10 minutes. Which makes sense since we taste more with our nose than our mouth and the warmer something is the more we can taste.
Which, BTW, is why it's so easy to eat a lot of cold cereal or ice cream without feeling full.
I drink 1% milk and save whole milk for special occasions, as silly as that sounds. On the occasion I drink whole milk, it's that much better.

I'm also a big fan of shaking the milk before I pour it. Maybe it's just me but I love the froth on top. Plus I think the small air bubbles suspended in the milk increase the exposure of the tongue to air, which is necessary for taste, thus increasing the enjoyment of the milk. Same idea behind the slurp people do when tasting wine. But that's just my theory.

I too have noticed that frothy liquids have more flavor than do straight liquids. And like you, I have a theory that the added air helps carry flavor molecules into the sinuses, where much of our ability to fully develop flavors resides. Also, I have noticed with non aerated liquids, that you really don't taste them until saliva mixes in to help carry and bind the flavor molecules to the receptors on the taste buds. So, aerated liquids disperse the flavors more completely into the nose, and mix more readily with saliva, thus intensifying the flavors of the liquid.

This, of course, is conjecture, or should I say, and educated guess, or hypothesis.

Ever take a Wendy's Chocolate Frosty, and heat it, then drink it? It's wonderful, again because it was engineered for max flavor at a very low temperature. When heated, it changes the flavor profile of the drink. It adds your nose to the sensory mix, and also brings in textural differences. So more senses are experiencing what the desert has to offer.

Ok, now we've gone from "How do you like your milk, to breastfeeding, to milk and the physics of the human body. Isn't it amazing how threads can evolve. That's what makes discussions so valuable, entertaining, and educational, all at the same time.

I think I need a glass of milk, at about 38 degrees.
