Letters To The Editor

August 17, 2015

To read the story referenced, “The Great Raw Milk Debate: Should You Pasteurize?,” click here.

I was born and raised on a large dairy farm. Always drank fresh unpasteurized milk at every meal. When the farm burned in 1993 I was forced to start buying milk from the stores. Within weeks of drinking pasteurized milk I started getting sick to my stomach on every glass I drank and I myself would drink a gallon a day from the farm. The doctor told me it was all in my head, but I know different. I have recently gotten some fresh milk from a farmer and don’t get sick off it ,so during the pasteurizing process something happens that I can’t handle. When you can’t make good cheese with store milk, I prefer mine straight from the bucket to the tank.

**********

As a farmer that sells raw milk, I highly encourage customers to ask questions and know me well! Don’t call up and ask “What do your animals eat?” That is important, but if you are not dairy savvy, you probably will not even understand what they are feeding or why. Ask more detailed questions like how your farmer cools the milk, how old is it when it is sold, what do you do with old milk (look for them to answer we make cheese or kefir or yogurt) or what containers do you use to sell milk. Look for a farmer that uses disposable containers (plastic isn’t everyone’s favorite but obtainable and you know it is a sterile clean container).

On that vein, I also encourage customers to patronize those who sell raw milk FOR A LIVING, NOT A HOBBY!! Why? Because if someone is a hobby farmer, maybe covering the cost of feed with 20 or 30 gallons of milk sold a week, and if someone gets sick from their practices, what have they lost? Their hobby income – a few dollars that covers the feed bill! Will that sink them? Probably not. But for those of us who sell raw milk for our primary income, we make sure everything is done right! If something goes wrong, we are subject to lose everything – our animals, our reputation, our livelihood! Buy from a professional – and professionals do not have to be big commercial farms!

Drank unpasteurized milk until I was 20. Keep your cow’s udder clean and your separator clean and refrigerate milk before drinking. Many people in our area did the same.

  1. PLEASE HELP: We are new to upstate NY and growing zucchini and yellow squash for the first time. When we harvest, we find that ALL of them regardless of size and age have a clear sap when we cut into the fruit. We’ve never seen this in the produce that we’ve bought. There is no odor, the squash looks perfect from the outside, it doesn’t seem bitter but there is a bunch of sap between the skin and the flesh and the texture of the squash seems off, likely because of the sap. We don’t know what this is or what we can do about it and we’ve been looking all over for answers. Can anyone provide any information? Thanks.

    • I know exactly what you are talking about! I picked a huge zucchini last year and was very confused when I cut into it and was greeted by a sticky oozing mess. Bacterial wilt might be the culprit if the goop is white and stringy.

      Plants that wilt and ooze a sticky sap when cut may be infected with bacterial wilt, which is spread by cucumber beetles.

      If your zucchini is infected with bacterial wilt, you need to dig up the plant and destroy it. You aren’t going to want to eat it either since the sap is chock-full of bacteria.

      It is very common for zucchini and other summer squashes to leak a clear, gel-like sap when cut. This is nothing to worry about health-wise. My guess would be that the sap appears when the squash has not received enough water.

  2. You got sick when drinking pasteurized milk because the process destroys the lactase and other beneficial enzymes. It appears that you are lactose intolerant which is not a problem if your milk contains the enzymes necessary to digest it.

  3. Pasteurizing milk destroys a number of nutrients that cannot tolerate heat. This includes enzymes that help you digest lactose. But that is not all. Milk proteins react to heat like wool reacts to agitation. The proteins shrink and tangle, becoming hard to digest. At the same time they trap the calcium molecules. Since they are harder to digest, your digestion cannot separate out the calcium. Result is you simply excrete a lot of the milk. Some people get a bellyache from it. Some do not. But everyone gets less nutrition.
