COLORING IN BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 27 March 1908
COLORING IN BUTTER. An interesting and valuable study and comparison of aniline and anatto but ter colors has recently been completed by the Winconsln Agricultural Experi ment Station. It should be understood that there are two general classes of butter color. Those brands, which are made from anatto seed by the use of some oil as a solvent are designated as vegetable colors, while the aniline or coal -tar preparations are called the mineral butter c9lors. Until within the past few years the aniline or mineral colors were used more extensively than the vegetable colors, but there appears to have been created. In the popular mind, an uncertainty as to whether or not an aniline butter color is harmless as used in the manufacture of butter. On account of this doubt, which with some amounts to prejudice against the use of coal-tar coloring matter in any article of food, manufacturers have of late made an effort to meet this demand for vegetable or anatto butter color. The observations m...

STERILISING SKIM MILK. Some farmers (writes the "Canadian Dairyman") show a prejudico against creameries.

Many ex periments on this point havo been con ducted, however, and there is pood evt denco obtainable relative to the advisa bility and effectiveness of the process. Professor H. D. Otis, of the Wiscon sin Agricultural College has been con ducting some exepcrimerits along this lint-. Professor Otis foiind thcit calves fed upon sterilised milk were less sub ject to scours and got off their feed less often than onlves fed on skim-milk that has. not been sterilised.In conducting (Ms experiment ho divided the "calves into two sections, to six of which he fed ste rilised sklm-millc, whilo the other six were fed.on sklm-mllk that hod not "been sterilised.

The amount of possible human tubercu losis form such a quantity of contami nated milk is appalling to contemplate. Tho only pVoper and obvious way to combat sucpessfully such a condition of things Is to Institute a system of inspec tion and supervision of the dairies and farms of tho country, so an to control thoroughly the milk supply and sccuie the removal of 'all tuberculous cattle. It has been clearly shown that milk, when sterilised, loses In nutritive qall tles, Is not so easily digested, and moy even give rise to rickets.
