Without doing a full investigative trial, I think it's pretty dark in my fridge anyway, assuming that the light does go out when I shut the door.

Whilst light does reduce the Riboflavin (Vit B2) content in milk, I think we all know that this is a con-trick* by Fonterra to keep us paying the ludicrous cost for it's products.





*Erm, I obviously meant marketing ploy!

Wink Re: Milk needs protection from light...

The study was conducted using intense UV lights and direct exposure. UV light doesn't travel through HDPE bottles much and generally I keep milk in the refrigerator. This isn't even a solution to a non-existent problem, it's creating a problem because people can't see how much milk they have left.

I wish they'd indent the sides with a measure though so you could see how many mL/calories you where consuming.

And that allows them to then 'solve' the problem by inventing a "new, improved' container!!!!

Call me cynical

Here is the answer to both. Just buy what you like and drink it. It's dark in that place, after it hits the back of your gob and until the remains find the light at the other end.

Yis

Outrageous liberal idealism.

Also the justification of an alcoholic.

My mum has started buying another brand because she likes to be able to see how much milk she has left in the bottle. I think she has a point.

Don't you just buy whichever one is cheapest at the time?

Clearly many people don't follow the same thinking, otherwise the sales of Anchor milk would be zero.

I don't understand why people pay $1 more per 2 litre carton of milk with a brand on it. Milk is milk, it's made by cows, so who cares what label later gets slapped on the bottle.

My mum is not in the sort of income group where she worries about the price of milk - me on the other hand.....
