What Does Breast-Milk Cheese Taste Like?

Written by PETA | March 11, 2010

Keeping on top of the media sensation that is Daniel Angerer’s “Mommy’s Milk Cheese” is like trying to chase an out-of-control toddler. The compassionate concoction has some skeptics who claim that the only thing that goes with this food is whine, but the fromomage has also attracted some intrigued fans.

Famed foodie and critic Gael Greene tasted it and declared the flavor “quite bland, slightly sweet, the mild taste overwhelmed by the accompanying apricot preserves and a sprinkle of paprika. It’s the unexpected texture that’s so off-putting. Strangely soft, bouncy, like panna cotta.” But over at the Today Show, one unsuspecting eater found no difference between mommy’s cheese and animal-derived cheese. The sneak-attack taste-test starts at 7:34:

 

 

PETA’s on board with human breast-milk cheese, and no one makes the argument better than the lactating lady herself, Lori Mason, who said, “People are eating milk from a cow or a goat or a yak or whatever and the milk from those animals feed their young just like the milk from humans feed their young. And while adults of most species aren’t meant to eat dairy or drink milk, we do. So if anything, it’s less of a stretch to eat human’s milk. … It’s the most nutritious thing on the planet for humans.”

    I think this is very neat! However I would hope people would wean their children before harvesting their milk so as not to take away from their own offspring. You can surely bet if human milk became popular in the form of cheese money grubbers would choose not to breastfeed and instead sell their milk for profit and likely the milk would go for more than formula otherwise who would bother?

    This is a really intersting topic. I’m sure the milking of cows started out really harmless many many years ago. But since the demand is now on high for milk cows are being milked by hurtful machines and are being fed hormones so they can produce this milk. What if the demand for human milk goes on high? I’m not saying that they are going to use machines but what about the hormones? This can totally mess with the human body. Quite frankly I’m not fond of the idea. I think I’ll stick to soy cheese thank you.

  • Kathryn says:

    Would be be violating my veganism if I ate Mommy’s Milk Cheese? I suppose so since humans are animals. I think I’ll stick with cashew nut cheese.

    i can’t think of anything objectionable about human cheese.In fact when i think of it it seems much more appetizing when compared to that of cows’.

  • Chad says:

    I wonder which will cost more… Human cheese or soy cheese? The former is my guess but crueltyfree options are always worth the price.

  • Cody says:

    It’s creepy to drink Cow’s milk. I must say that while I would drink some of this to make a point… It doesn’t really sound very appetizing P

  • Suzanne says:

    Absolutely ridiculous…and frankly damn creepy.
