Special Delivery

Posted in District of Columbia by melissamccart on February 15, 2008

In Politics of the Plate, Gourmet.com addresses the FDA’s changing of the definition of milk to include the “ultrafiltered” stuff. What does this mean to consumers?

As the name implies, ultrafiltered milk has been passed through a fine membrane that retains large molecules such as protein and fat, while allowing smaller molecules like water, lactose, and little things called vitamins and minerals to wash away.

Supporting local farmers allows for consumers to use their dollars to voice protest.  Can’t make it to the market?  Milk delivery is alive and well in the area according to the Washington PostHedgebrook Farms delivers weekly to northern Virginia while South Mountain Creamery delivers to Virginia, Maryland, and parts of the District.
