Because I am a lazy so and so and cannot be bothered to keep going to the shop to buy milk, I often send my wife to the supermarket to buy several 4 pint bottles at a time.I then freeze all but one of them, and when it's close to running out I thaw out a frozen bottle.Interestingly, the frozen ones are urine-yellow, but they go white when they defrost. What do you think is going on? Is the yellow the fat separating from the water as it freezes?Chris
Mmm, but it could be the proteins rather than just the fat separating from the water as it forms ice?Chris
You can freeze milk ?
This "library on your desk" is just unbelievable.Call it Google or PubMed or www...In the last few years freezing of breast milk has actually been investigated for a possible positive effect like viral (CMV) inactivation, but these tiny bugs seem to freeze quite nicely and peacefully wait for thawing to go around and snag cells...using all their well preserved bits and pieces!So bottles/bags/disposabledevices producers can only claim a more 'practical' way to feed your baby."...the freezing breast milk at -20°C preserved biochemical and immunologic quality of milk; however, late viral RNA and viral infectivity was also preserved..."page 302; click here: http://www.abpblh.org.br/Citomegalovirus%20e%20Leite%20Humano-Miron%20e%20cl%20-2005.pdfhttp://babycare.iloveindia.com/gifs/rht-feed.jpg
