We use raw milk to obtain the nutrients which are lost during the pasteurization process. We also drink raw milk to avoid the potential problems with homogenization. When milk is homogenized, the fat globules are smashed so small that the body no longer recognizes them for what they are and will often attack them as an allergen. So particularly for our children, we want to avoid homogenized milk to at least help prevent milk allergies from developing.
There are some weeks when $$ is tight (raw milk is so expensive out here) that we opt for cream-top non-homogenized milk.
