Somebody buy and taste it please.
Eh when you consider milk is not really required for adults (in fact it is not very healthy at all, too much fat and sugars, which you cannot breakdown most of the time unless you are northern European) this might be a good idea.
[QUOTE=Killuah;47079133]So far I'm pretty neutral about this, the only thing that would raise a brow is how heavily processed the stuff is but so is almost everything in supermarkets. Somebody buy and taste it please.[/QUOTE] Why would it being processed be a negative anyways? It doesn't really do anything bad to the food. Plus its the law that any food being sold is safe for human consumption.
[QUOTE]The fact that Fairlife is made by means of "a proprietary milk filtering process" isn't likely to sit well with everyone either. [B]Steven Colbert[/B] alluded to the reality last fall, when he responded to news of the new drink by [B]calling it "extra expensive science milk" [/B]and quipping[B] "it’s like they got Frankenstein to lactate."[/B][/QUOTE] That made me chuckle.

[QUOTE=Deng;47079148]Why would it being processed be a negative anyways? It doesn't really do anything bad to the food. Plus its the law that any food being sold is safe for human consumption.[/QUOTE] This opens up a whole debate that I don't have time or attention for so I'll just say that all in all I try to follow the rule that the more processed it is the less healthy it is. See instant-noodles, microwave-meals, crisps, you get the idea.

Europeans (which includes everyone that descended from us) are adapted to drinking milk, it's just other people, i.e. Asians and Africans which are not very adapted for it.. Not unlike you.
They will probably add other bad shit to it like aspartame.

"hello waiter, I'd like a glass of milk please" "is pepsi okay?"
I would much rather they work on a way to deliver raw milk safely to customers. It's incredibly tasty, much better for you than pasteurized milk, and, unfortunately, because it's difficult to ensure it's sterile, especially for a long time, it's also incredibly expensive and depending on where you live you might not be able to buy it at all. Where I live, farmers with cows have to do this legal fuckery in order to sell raw milk, which is pretty funny: [url]http://www.realmilk.com/herdshares/share-agreements/[/url] 'you're paying $20 for partial ownership of the cow/goat/whatever and are entitled to a gallon of its milk per week, oh and since you own it we're not legally liable if you catch a bug from the milk'
[QUOTE=hrak;47079291]I would much rather they work on a way to deliver raw milk safely to customers. It's incredibly tasty, much better for you than pasteurized milk[/QUOTE] No it isn't. The nutritional changes caused by pasteurization are minimal and does not significantly impact the taste (which is why it's widely used in the industry to prolong the longevity of the milk and make it safer). Also raw milk tends to carry diseases like typhoid and diphtheria.
They're already into water (Dasani). Can't say it's any surprise that they want to attract another bunch of people

Not unlike you.[/QUOTE] Yeah, and don't non-Europeans or their descendants live in areas where this new milk is going to be sold? And not all Europeans are lactose tolerant, just a higher proportion of them (and even then not all Europeans, mostly northern Europeans). [editline]5th February 2015[/editline] [QUOTE=TestECull;47079393]It's better than drinking soda.[/QUOTE] Might be, not that it is relevant to the point here. It is still not as healthy as people think it is. It is very good nutritionally when you are a baby. Not so much when you can get everything found in milk from other sources.
mmm bottled milk straight from the vending machine sign me up
[QUOTE=TestECull;47079393]It's better than drinking soda.[/QUOTE] Varies wildly depending on the soda but like someone said that's beside the point. Drinking either isn't particularly healthy.

[editline]5th February 2015[/editline] The pretty much healthiest way to operate is drinking nothing but tap water but that doesnt mean people have to limit themselves to that to just that to stay perfectly healthy. Milk is convenient, milk is subjectively tasty. If somebody enjoys milk and isnt obese theres no reason for them to not drink it.

Normal milk causes problems for me but non-homogenized is fine

No one is arguing that people should not drink milk if they enjoy it. In fact it is exactly what this milk is trying to achieve, give the same taste without the potential harms of excess fat and sugar.

[QUOTE=cdr248;47079539]One of my teachers is a nutrionist who only drinks water and black coffee. Im not sure how he lives[/QUOTE] Because water is all you need to drink and black coffee isn't particularly bad? The occassional milk or fruit juice is fine but drinking several servings a day definitely isn't healthy with all the sugars and fats of the former. [editline]5th February 2015[/editline] Back on topic, actually got a couple bottles this morning: Some 2% and Chocolate 2% is alright. Taste reminds me of Mayfield, with a weird aroma and after taste that reminds me of almond milk. Probably all the proteins. The real winner here is the chocolate though. Tastes great (somewhere between traditional chocolate milk and a chocolate protein shake) at only 12g sugar per cup. I could see myself maybe drinking Fairlife if the price wasn't so bad. It's less than a half gallon yet costs a good 20 cents more than any full gallon store brand here.

[QUOTE=cdr248;47079434]mmm bottled milk straight from the vending machine sign me up[/QUOTE] The downside with milk is that it spoils much quicker. If it was checked frequently and in a vending machine, i would drink it all the time because i love milk over soda.
where can i buy this milk
ha im lactose intolerant
[QUOTE=mastfire;47080023]ha im lactose intolerant[/QUOTE] this milk has none
[QUOTE=BloodRayne;47079212]They will probably add other bad shit to it like aspartame.[/QUOTE] Wow what a well-informed claim [QUOTE]Reviews have found no association between aspartame and cancer. These reviews have looked at numerous carcinogenicity studies in animals, epidemiologic studies in humans, as well as in vitro genotoxicity studies. These studies have found no significant evidence that aspartame causes cancer in animals, damages the genome, or causes cancer in humans at doses currently used.[8][38][41] This position is supported by multiple regulatory agencies like the FDA[58] and EFSA as well as scientific bodies such as the National Cancer Institute.[47][/QUOTE] [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspartame#Cancer[/url] [QUOTE]In the largest study of this issue, researchers from the NCI looked at cancer rates in more than 500,000 older adults. The study found that, compared to people who did not drink aspartame-containing beverages, those who did drink them did not have an increased risk of lymphomas, leukemias, or brain tumors.[/QUOTE] [url]http://www.cancer.org/cancer/cancercauses/othercarcinogens/athome/aspartame[/url]
Cant wait to see the ingredients they put in this.
