The milk scandal continues to escalate as it spreads to more companies and more products, including some well established brands like Nestle. It’s also spread geographically with milk in Singapore testing positive for contaminates. With such widespread contamination, many parents do not know which brand to feed their newborn babies.
Turns out the practice of diluting milk is rampant in the industry and not just limited to adding melamine to boost protein readings. They also add (industrial!) oil to boost fat content and whey powder to fake lactose levels.
It’s good to see one enterprising woman has offered her own breast milk for cash to concerned parents who don’t know where to turn!
It’s a real disaster but if I can put a positive to this, it’s that the milk industry will finally be better controlled after the dust settles and that’s a good thing for all of us.
In the mean time, I continue to put Guang Ming (Bright Dairy) milk in my tea, but after reading all this stuff, I am starting to imagine (I hope it’s just my imagination) a burning sensation in my throat.
