"Cold-Pressed" Milk Just Got Legalised In Australia
Food authorities in NSW have determined a cold-press system removes an adequate amount of harmful bacteria from milk for sale.
A cold-pressed raw milk product has been approved by an Australian state's food authorities.
The decision by the NSW Food Authority came after more than year of discussions aimed at making sure the milk is safe for consumption.
Sydney's Made by Cow will be the first suppliers of cold-pressed "raw" milk in Australia. The company markets its milk as "raw" despite the authority not recognising the product as such because it undergoes "high pressure processing" to eliminate pathogens.
"The process that we undertake is very different to traditional heat pasturisation," Made by Cow's founder Saxon Joye told BuzzFeed News. "We wanted to take a less processed approach, or a simpler approach, and just mess with the milk a lot less."
