Did you know that Meiji Milk is a product of Thailand? I’d always thought that the milk came from cows born and bred in Japan! I’ve always liked the milk from Meiji for its particularly unique taste. Can’t quite put my finger to it, except to say that it doesn’t taste like the usual fresh milk. It seems ever so slightly sweeter too. I checked the ingredient list (as I always do for everything that I buy at the supermarket) and it’s 100% fresh milk. I haven’t been drinking Meiji Milk for a few years. A friend once told me that milk should not be stored in bottles where the milk can be exposed to light. Apparently, light from the florescent tubes in the supermarket can cause the vitamins and minerals to break down. Also, the thick plastic bottles that Meiji uses isn’t all that good for the environment. These days I just go for Marigold Fresh FULL CREAM milk. And don’t let me get started on why it is better to drink full cream milk than skimmed milk.
