#4066 – b-grade

so my carton of milk says that it is “grade a” milk.

is it even possible to get b-grade milk?? if you can’t, then why even bother labeling it as “grade a” if there’s no other types of milk available?? i mean, oranges are called oranges because they’re… ORANGE. if oranges (the fruit) also came in red, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet, then i highly doubt they’d still be called “oranges”! they’d be called something else instead. see my point?


  1. Oooh:

    Grade A milk: Milk produced under sufficiently sanitary conditions to qualify for fluid (beverage) consumption. Also referred to as fluid grade milk. Only Grade A milk is regulated under federal milk marketing orders. Grade B milk (also referred to as manufacturing grade) does not meet fluid grade standards and is used only in manufactured products. More than 90% of all milk produced nationally is Grade A. Therefore, much of the Grade A milk supply is used in manufactured dairy products.
