Last Friday evening in my local Jenny Lou supermarket they had run of grapes, bananas ... and milk - at least my favorite milk brand, the one with the Great Wall on it. So I had to buy that new organic Wondermilk that comes in half liter packs and is the most expensive milk of all: 13 kuai for 500 ml, that is 2,60 Euro for a liter of milk! Anyway, I wanted to try it out. The taste is just normal - like milk tastes back in Europe. I realised that other Chinese milk has a bit of sweetness. But the most alarming thing that popped into my eyes and that is why I am blogging about milk today. There was a label saying:
That means: for the last two years I might have offered my child milk with antibiotics and hormones!?! Maybe I should go to Carrefour and buy milk by the French brand Le Président, this I think, might be as safe and is less expensive. And after all, it is French and not Chinese. I am sorry, but I have lived in China long enough. I cannot trust anybody or anything. Something labeled organic does not mean it is organic. Chinese are able to fake everything. I wish I could have more confidence. Wondermilk sounds like a great project with 'happy cows and happy employees'.
