COLOR OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 2 July 1914
COLOR OF MILK. The color of milk will vary with the breed of cow yielding the milk, and the feeding the cow receives. Some foods have the effect of giving th milk a good flavor, and other kinds of food just the reverse. The natural color of milk is due to the coloring matter, "lactochrome," pre sent in the 'butterfat. Milk is paler in color during winter or when the animals are given dry feed. Rich col oring milk yields butter of a deep yellow color when it is well made. Several faults in the making of but ter cause much of the color to dis appear, and this should be guarded against.
