Is milk "nature's perfect food"? This week on A Taste of the Past, Linda Pelaccio is joined by cookbook historian Anne Mendelson to debunk this myth. Anne is the author of Milk: The Surprising Story of Milk Through the Ages, a cookbook and overview of milk's history. Learn about milk's volatile chemistry, the differences between different mammals' milks, and Anne's thoughts on the raw milk debate. Also, Anne explains the beginnings of the pasteurization and homogenization processes, and how it changed the lives of urban dwellers in the late 1800s. Hear about modern pasteurization processes, from small to large scale. This program has been brought to you by Cain Winery.

"It [milk] is intended to be supplied in one particularly way, and one alone...under those circumstances it is quite safe to drink, even if it's raw. But if you divert it, if you interrupt that closed system... it changes as soon as you divert it into the outside world; you've already interrupted nature the moment you do that."

"Raw milk's sales allow farmers to sell directly to consumers without a middle man. And it's one of the ways that farmers can sell their product for a price so that they can make a living."

"Micro-dairy farming is 10 animals or less on a dairy farm. The concept is to keep your operation at a scale where you can sell all your milk directly to consumers and maintain control of your milk and its price." [02:00]

"The current [dairy] delivery system is largely obsolete, especially in these days when energy costs are so high. It deserves a re-think - we can make some improvements." [05:00]

"US Dairy farmers are extremely intelligent and efficient - they can produce a lot of milk for not much money and as a result the milk supply in this country is in a constant state of over supply." [28:00]
