So, what is raw milk?

Raw milk is a nutrient-rich dairy product that has not undergone any form of pasteurization or homogenization. Obtained directly from cows, goats, or sheep, it contains enzymes, beneficial bacteria, and vitamins that are destroyed during pasteurization. With a creamy, rich taste and texture, it is used to make various dairy products like cheese, butter, and yogurt. However, due to the risk of harmful bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella, raw milk consumption is controversial, with some health authorities recommending against it. Despite this, it remains a popular choice among those seeking a more natural and unprocessed way of consuming dairy.
