Permeate is a technical term for the lactose, water, vitamins and minerals components of milk produced by a separation process called ultra-filtration.
Milk brands from Australia and New Zealand, distributed in Singapore, as of end July 2012, have not labelled their packaging as permeate-free. However, we cannot verify the contents of other brands, but we can assure you that Greenfields products do not contain permeate.
It is not known to be harmful to human consumption but buying milk with permeate means you're not getting 100% of what you paid for - fresh milk.
It is real, fresh milk with NOTHING added to it.
If a cow falls ill, it may be treated with antibiotics, just like humans. But the milk from these cows is NOT used in our production.

It is recommended that you warm the milk by putting the milk into a cup/bottle and then, putting the cup/bottle into a bowl of hot water.
Homogenisation is the process of breaking up the fat globules in cream to such a small size that they remain suspended evenly in the milk rather than separating out and floating to the surface.
It is a process of heating a food, which is usually a liquid, to a specific temperature for a predefined length of time and then immediately cooling it after it is removed from the heat. This process kills bacteria and slows spoilage due to microbial growth in the food.
Yes, pasteurised milk has to be kept chilled to maintain the freshness. Pasteurisation process only kills pathogen bacteria thus chilled storage will keep the milk longer.
UHT milk should be kept at room temperature before opening and has a shelf life of approximately nine months. Once the pack is opened, it is recommended to keep the milk refrigerated and to be consumed within four days.
