Made By Cow’s version of raw milk available Down Under
Cold-pressed “raw milk” goes on sale this week in Australia. It uses high pressure processing instead of heat, which the Australian Food Standards Code recognizes as pasteurization. The new process is being called revolutionary in producing milk that is said to be creamy and wholesome.
That means the startup company, Made By Cow, can legally sell the product in Australian supermarkets along side milk pasteurized by heat. Cold-pressed raw milk is being called the world’s first safe-to-drink raw milk. It is being marketed as a “cow to bottle” product.
Made By Cow’s patented cold-pressure process used water pressure, more like processes typically used in manufacturing juice, not milk. The company insists the cold-pressed process results in a product that is safe for human consumption, but one that will fulfill the tastes of raw milk drinkers.
The Made by Cow business model reportedly involves some herd management techniques and hygienic milking practices. It goes quickly from “cow to bottle” as it is compressed with water to eliminate harmful bacteria while keeping “natural ingredients intact.”

3. Some people love it and swear by it, but not me.
I would like to get fresh cream to make butter, but selling anything like that raw is illegal here I think.
Fresh yard eggs are the best. They taste so much better than store eggs.

6. As an adult, I no longer consume...
Infant food...I do use it in various recipes, and I use cheese and sour cream, but the thought of drinking a glass of plain milk never even crosses my mind..Also, since I don't eat cereal as a rule, I don't use any milk in that situation either...
I can recall, early in my childhood, being fed raw milk obtained from the dairy farm out my back door, and not liking it even a little bit..!!
In my mid 20's I suffered from chronic stomach problems, and as soon as I stopped consuming milk they went away..

10. pasteurizing had almost the same effect on human health
as vaccinating. Why people want to go back to the dark ages with their "natural wholesome" dangerous raw milk crap is beyond me.
The US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says improperly handled raw milk is responsible for nearly three times more hospitalizations than any other food-borne disease source, making it one of the world's most dangerous food products. Diseases prevented by pasteurization can include tuberculosis, brucellosis, diphtheria, scarlet fever, and Q-fever; it also kills the harmful bacteria Salmonella, Listeria, Yersinia, Campylobacter, Staphylococcus aureus, and Escherichia coli O157:H7, among others.
... Before the widespread urban growth caused by industrialization, people kept dairy cows even in urban areas and the short time period between production and consumption minimized the disease risk of drinking raw milk. As urban densities increased and supply chains lengthened to the distance from country to city, raw milk (often days old) became recognised as a source of disease. For example, between 1912 and 1937 some 65,000 people died of tuberculosis contracted from consuming milk in England and Wales alone.
An entire branch of my family tree was just about wiped out by tuberculosis - my great-grandfather's first wife and daughter, multiple siblings, niece - child of one of the two siblings who survived to have children, and probably the children of the other sibling who did. I just haven't forked out $15 for all the death certificates beyond the four I did get, which confirmed that the "plague that wiped out his family" that my uncle remembered his grandfather talking of was not smallpox, as I had suspected, but TB, some pulmonary, some abdominal - "phthisis abdominalis" as it was known at the time.
Who puts themself and their kids at risk of that so they can be a food snob?
