if someone wants to explain to me ACAs vendetta against permeate, im all ears - it seems to me that this horse has been well and truly flogged...
idk, sounds like a win-win to me. unless you as a customer feel aggrieved paying "full price" for something thats semi-reconstituted, then getting very cheap and very consistent milk year round without the processing plants being left to dispose of the permeate elsewhere sounds good to me.Originally Posted by 6D4248552C0 link=1340622249/0#0 date=1340622249
of course, i use the term "full price" loosely - most of the permeates come in at ~$1/L while the nons such as A2, pura, etc are closer to double that (i seem to recall the permeates being $3/3L while the pura was more like $5.50/3L)
my opinion though is quite moot as i dont drink dairy (bonsoy or so-good barista please). in my past life, however, when i used to go through a litre and a half a day, the non-permeates were never really good enough to justify the price difference - while they were almost always better, there was a lot more variance in quality and not really good enough to justify the extra $$$.
