How does the dairy industry get away with selling the public skim milk at the same price as whole milk?
I don't see the point of this post, but where I live, at one store, anyway, whole milk costs up to 20-30 cents more per gallon since they can't take the fat out for butter. I don't know what the motives of the original poster are (this seems like an odd first post), but pricing is decided by the grocery store, and a one-price-fits-all model might be easier for some stores. If stores don't profit, they close. We've lost grocery stores around here, so I don't complain much as long as I they're providing some choices for me. We all have to pay for things. Grocery stores have to pay for things like the food, building, heating, refrigeration, cash out equipment and employees. Getting upset over 20-30 cents doesn't make much sense to me in that light, especially since it could make the difference over the long term about whether or not someone has a job.
Question posed to support Brigitte Ruthman and her farm. She continues to stand up for her rights to provide a living for herself and provide healthy food for consumers and co-owners of her cows who want to drink unprocessed milk.
In this below post, I pose a series of questions requesting information as to whether indeed skim milk is a scam meant to propagate the lowfat dogma and the lipid hypothesis. http://www.thepaleogarden.com/2011/01/30/high-fat-robbery/
A sufficient answer demonstrating this scam may show how it further benefits and proves how various big ag lobbies wish to regulate food production as we are skimmed out of money and spun around in a centrifuge. If you have any answers to these questions, I appreciate your input. Thanks, long time reader, first time poster here on Paleo Hacks.
