Chicken Milk? If you are like me, then the first thing that may have come to mind is 'how in the world would they milk a chicken?' Then the second thing that may have come to your mind is 'nevermind, I really don't want to know.' But, it seems we are talking about 'milk' more like milk alternatives than from mammals. A pediatrician out of Thailand who specializes in nutrition has been working to create an infant formula that is made from chicken meat (breast meat most often) as a substitute for cow milk infant formula for little ones who are allergic to milk and may be intolerant of soy. The doctor says that chicken is a good medium as infants are rarely allergic to it, and it is a protein and nutrient-rich food. I am not sure if the good doctor's formula will make it to market, but you can read the full article on this 'meaty milk.' If the story is no longer available online, email us, we have kept a copy.
