I drink filtered milk its actually healthier as its got less sugar in and its suitable for lactose intolerance suffers too
Gr8 deal, kids drink milk, you can also make your own yogurt at home, tea n coffee, need lots of milk everyday, but never tried waitrose milk so will give it a go
Very hot. Anyone know if either of the Manchester little Waitrose stock this? Thanks

I don't know what a lactose intolerance is can't you just say Red, Blue or Green it's more simple and easy to understand (sorry not a milk expert)
It’ll probably work out cheaper to buy a cow for each ten houses: free butter, yogurt, milk and cheese.
Added bonus of nutrient enriched compost and a lawn mower....actually makes sense! Who’s up for it

Don't have to be a milk expert it's good basic knowledge to be aware of. Red blue green has nothing to do with lactose intolerance suffers, that is just the fat, and even then full fat blue milk is only about 3% fat, semi skimmed green milk only 2% and skimmed is less that 0.2% I think. So even then we have been made fools of.

The farmers have long fooled us and made it a staple in our diet, it will slowly become less popular as a direct source I reckon. Plant based milks are becoming more popular as the country becomes more health conscious and it has nothing to do with the fat content.

All that said still a good deal.

Diddnt realise, the filtered milk name meant it was suited to lactose intolerance, I thought the A2? milk was that, but I guess there's no official term. I'll have to look into that.

You have to keep artificially inseminating the cow to keep it pregnant in order to keep it lactating. It is then necessary to separate the mother from the resulting calf to allow the cow to fall pregnant again. You will therefore need a supply of bull semen, a means to slaughter calves and and sufficient emotional detachment not to be affected by the process of removing mother and baby from each other.

Last time I looked Waitrose were one of the best payers in terms of price to the farmer, whilst Lidl and Aldi were pretty much at the bottom.
Excellent deal, thanks OP!

Not true. Ordinary filtered milk is filtered to remove bacteria but not lactose. I think you're getting mixed up with lactose-free milk telegraph.co.uk/foo…st/

According to the Waitrose website there's only a marginal difference in sugar content between this and the ordinary stuff (9.2g/200ml v 10g/200ml).

I didn't say its filtered to remove lactose. I said beacuse it's filtered some of the sugar are less too which makes it suitable for lactose intolerance suffers it works for me

Take of your rose tinted glasses, and don’t fall for the NFU propaganda.
They are businessmen (and women) who work for profit in the agriculture industry.
Don’t get me started on the billions of pounds (of our money) they receive in subsidies.
Standard semi and full fat milk has been for £1 at Iceland for ages.

Yes! Also correct me if I'm wrong but this so say deal actually ISN'T A DEAL unless you shop there since you actually get LESS MILK! You get 4 pints for £1 in Iceland this is only 2 litres!! (0.272 litres less!) And you have to buy 2 bottles to get the offer! What if you only require 1 pay the extra?? 👎
can you boil this type of milk for drinking.

Very true - and it's a very good price.

Their super-filtered Cravendale milk (which is what this deal is all about) however is £1.80 - or £3 for two. Iceland's probably the cheapest place for standard milk, but if you want a product with a much longer shelf life Cravendale (or one of its identical clones) is the only answer if you want it to taste like proper milk.

Certainly - the only noticeable difference from 'ordinary' milk is the very long shelf life.
Most milk is 4 pints - these are less at 2 litres = 3.5 pints. 4 pints in Iceland is £1. Any milk should keep for months (plural) unopened if it has been properly pasturised. Pasturisation destroys the spoilage organisms which is why it keeps, potentially indefinitely. Once opened, treat like you normally would.
Been a pound per 2ltrs at Asda since the old pope died... For the 4 people who shop there possibly a deal but cold for me

It find it weird how were all brought up on mothers milk, then worldwide we use cows milk as the replacement?! Don't get me wrong I drink milk but its weird none the less. In concern to this deal milk is drank at home way before it goes off.

You've obviously not met some of the small farmers literally living from hand to mouth and depending on subsidies to survive. I have - and believe me they're barely existing. Once the subsidies go, post-Brexit, the land will return to nature and we'll see how that goes down with people.
Used to get the filtered stuff from tesco that stays fresh for 7 days. Trouble is find any semi skimmed from a supermarket with a decent date on it, open the same day and will last you 7 days no problem if you don't use it up beforehand.
