It hasn't been necessary since homogenized milk. But I picked up this habit as a kid.
Nope. Just smell and pour (or throw out).
Nah, because I wasn't alive before homogenized milk.
Who wants foamy frothy milk? Gross!
A bit, just to check if it hasn't rotted (besides smelling)... I do shake juice tho...
No. I think that milk is nasty, and it also makes me sick after I drink it. Most of my family shakes milk though.
Yes. Grew up on a farm... Old habits die hard.
Yeah... Milk is meant for calves. The only time I drink milk is in other drinks (tea, milo, coffee etc). Can't stand it straight... Yuck.
Oops! I thought "shake your milk before pouring it" was a euphemism. Please ignore my previous comment about "once in Cincinnati".
A little shake and put my nose nearby to smell the flavor. When I was student I had many milk bottles "getting alive" in my fridge ... Oh, that can be really bad ...
Not unless it's chocolate. I do however put ice in my milk. If it's even slightly warm I'll heave.
All non-dairy stuff needs to be shaken, really.
You mean like hamburgers and bread, for example??
As pointed out, since homogenization, shaking is unnecessary. No harm done - just not necessary.
As others have pointed out, since homogenisation, milk does not really need to be shaken. Nevertheless, I must admit that I rarely used to shake it in the days when it came in bottles, - not cartons - cream at the top, which would leave a white moustache on your upper lip when you drank it, as that was the delicious part.
Actually, I'm surprised at how many here on this thread appear to dislike milk. As a child, I loved it, and put it down to maturing taste buds (which grew to prefer coffee, and later, beer and wine rather than milk) rather than the simple fact of homogenisation, when my liking turned to indifference.
It took a visit to an organic food fair in the UK (Bristol) a few years ago, when I had the privilege to taste really good organic milk to remind me of what I used to like as a child; I had forgotten how good it tasted, and now seek it out at farmer's markets and from small artisan producers.
Yep, always will too. Relic from the past, useless habit, and have thrown a fair amount of the white stuff about in doing- but something that I feel to be very important.
Excellent q, Capt. u
Only when opening a new can.
Wow, this is some kind of throwback. I'm in my mid-50s, and I've never heard of "shaking your milk".
I got used to it from the ones with added calcium where they tell you to shake it.
Definitely, I've quaffed down some chunky milk in my time, I always sniff before pouring.
I never shake my soy milk.
I voted as a milk drinker, but probably just screwed up the stats of your poll a bit.
Half-gallon and gallon milk; no, unless it's chocolate.
In the small milk cartons at school (grade school) I always did and still do. Went to CrackerBarrel yesterday and they brought out two small cartons; shaked them and poured them.
No , i only smell it.
Only if it's flavored (chocolate or strawberry). Otherwise, no.
No not really.
As to firestar's response, I make my own flavored milk, rather than the bottles, so I have to stir anyways.
I've never heard of anybody shaking milk...
I only do so at school.
