Dairy products - what are your staples?

Hi everyone. We'd like to know.....what are the staple dairy products you buy when you go to the shops? We're guessing milk is one of them (are we right?) - but what else do you buy regularly? And have you tried probiotic dairy products? Do you think they are worth the money? Please give us your thoughts!

Blossom says: I have to reduce my yoghurt intake because I was eating a lot of it .....and yes, I have put on a considerable amount of weight. I find yoghurt very filling so it would have been a good option for me as my bones are thin for my age, partly because of medication I was given as a lifesaving method. Later research proved that it leeches calcium and minerals from peoples' bones. I have to take Vit. D every day. Reply

Ingi says: I sometimes buy cheese cakes for dessert as a change and only ice-cream cake for grandchildren's Birthdays sometimes, they prefer ice-cream cake to baked birthday cake. Rev milk as a staple (used to love normal milk in bottles in 50-70's, Yoghurt which I like both varieties light and full cream, real butter now, have looked up ao many pros and cons that butter is the way to go for frying etc. and sandwhiches. Went through buying 'Lite' items found it has more sugar than the normal stuff so back to normal staples, brown sugar, butter, full cream cream, cheese both varieties, lots of vegies brocolli, carrots, cabbage, and lots fruit. Margarine read about how it is made, you might as well eat plastic....don't laugh.....tried Probiotic drinks, yoghurts etc. off it now.......good marketing measures indeed.....lowers fat, cholesterole......etc....rubbish I say.......just marketing ideas.....we are not stupid.......

I buy most yoghurts that are on special, being on a pension I rather like the Greek yoghurts. Rev milk by Pauls is less fattening than other brands. Sometimes I but Activa because of it's probiotic elements, but they are normally too expensive. Why is anything that has less sugar and better for you so much dearer? Reply

I prefer to buy plain yoghurt and add my own flavourings as that way I am not consuming lots of added sugars. There are a few dairy products available that are supposed to help lower your cholesterol - I am giving these a go. The ones with probiotic properties may be useful if you have digestive issues, but often just plain yoghurt is sufficient. Reply

Depending on the time of year I may also buy cream and sour cream, custard, tinned cream in the spray pack, puddings and ice cream, mascarpone cheese, condensed milk, evaporated milk, yoghurt, cottage cheese, ricotta, feta, parmesan cheese, soft spreadable cheese triangles, edam cheese, speciality ice creams, cheese cakes etc. I have tried probiotic dairy products but don't generally buy these unless a family member has some digestive issue. They may be worth the money if you are in need of them and if they help you. My 21 year old drinks a litre of milk a day and tends to leave the milk out and about so I find the best idea is the long life. But the pack is aluminium lined and I would like to know if this will cause Alzheimers disease in the end, if anyone out there knows something about the subject? Reply

I have tried a few of the fancy milks, but I tend to stick to milk that isn't homogenised because, not only is it a preference, but it is more natural. However, if the non-homogenised isn't available, I go for an organic. I don't think that the organic milk is much different from normal milk though... Maybe they didn't spray the cow with pesticides?? ;P Reply

says: I usually shop Pura original milk.I think Iam quite loyal to this brand. I dont like fat free milk. I think if you like drinking milk just drink the pure one otheriwise dont drink at all. fat reduced milk doesnt help much with your weights stuff.
I have recently in love with the Dairy Farmers Thick and Creamy yogurt. Especially the coconut favour. Before this, I love buying Dannon yogurt. But after tried the Dairy Farmers' I stop buying. When comparing the normal market prices, Dairy Farmers is a little bit more expensive. But when they go on sale the small one sold 99c sometimes. Because I will have yogurt everyday I will consume them so quickly so it is ok for me to buy the reduced price ones coz they are going to be expired soon.
I will shop butter too. 500g of butter can be consumed for long. so usuallyshope once three months or just wait till they are on sale and buy. I suaully go for lite ones. Would like to try different brands. The one I am having in my frige now is from Gold'n Canola. Reply

Julia_m66 says: dairy is tricky - we shouldnt consume alot
full fat dairy products should be the priority! pro-biotic dairy products may be helpful but dont really work that well - if the fat is missing the probiotic nature of the yoghurt has been eliminated anyway! the government only puts in 3 probiotics when really there are around 50 needed in the stomach!
Dairy products can be a very affordable product but consumers need to be careful of extra sugar, preservatives and additives that are put in Reply

Yakult hope i spelt correct, as not here in house at moment, we have tried that probiotic a couple of times and tastes nice, not sure really personally if worth the money and if had any good effect at all, but subconsciously bought thinking and believing may help us all in house here and the taste is nice. thanks Dave3214 Reply

I definitely think these products are worth the money. I love cheese and always have to have a selection in my fridge of fancy cheeses, just in case friends drop by for a glass of wine, etc. Day to day I don't eat alot of cheese though.

Assaya says: MILK - There is just FAR TOO MUCH choice in milk. I miss the one option bottled milk that was delivered to every home in the mornings. Now THAT was true service and the milk was always fresh and creamy.
YOGHURT - seems to have too much sugar in it these days so it tends to be bottom heavy now in the health scales.
BUTTER - I use just for flavouring food when cooking.
PROBIOTICS - have tried them, they're sweet and yummy but made no difference to me otherwise, and they are too expensive. Reply

I haven't used cream cheese in ages, but I used to make my own dips. It seems silly to pay high prices for commercial dips that are simple 95% flavoured cream cheese. Reply

Blossom says: Two friends of mine are lactose intolerant. They are grateful that they can now buy lactose free cheese, cream, milk, yoghurt and even icecream. I am not a chocolate lover but the Chocolate Icecream is delightful. I have been told that Liddell is one of the best brands, that their products taste almost the same as those made with cows milk. There is also a variety of spreads available that are milk free. A lot of margarines have milk in them. Why do those products have to be so expensive.
Lactose Free Milk is close to double the price of other milk.
The same problem exists with Gluten Free Food. Reply

I think probiotic dairy product are useless because if you would whant to get the amount of good bacteria in your colon sistem you would have to eat a hole lot of them. Eating a large amount of dairy product daily makes your body acidic and that kills your good bacteria in the body. Dairy products are not realy efficient source of calcium because this calcium does not dissolve in your body properly because it is not organic plant sources calcium. Your body gets 5 times more calcium from cold pressed almond oil with a tsp daily. That is just my opinion and my life experience. Reply

You know what i hate? it is the amount of room that those individual, specifically packaged items take up in my fridge. If i could buy a 500ml each of greek yoghurt, regular cream, sour cream and marg type spread, and that they all came in stackable containers of the same shape, that take up smallest footprint in my fridge,------ well.... as long as it wasn't 'fat free' crap.... i would continue to purchase those items on rotation. Come on dairy.... get your shit together... this is the next thing.... there are lot of us with OCD out here, and it just makes sense. Look at the spice and herb industry. see those nicely conforming, easily filed away and identified items...? that is what the dairy industry needs. the first one to do this will win. cheers Reply

Captain Slog says: What are My, OUR, Dairy Product Staples? The Quick Answer? EVERYTHING!! Most Importantly, though, is our Daily MILK. We just CANNOT Live without Milk. If it was the ONLY Food Available, MILK is the Life Saver. It has EVERYTHING in it to Nourish us, and that's obvious. Next to Milk is Cheese. Edam, Mild, Colby, Tasty, Blue, Camembert, Brie, Gouda, Mozzarella, etc. I'd simply STARVE without it! I Love my Beef, but I can no longer afford it. Not even Mince and Sausages. Sausages are now a HUGE Rip Off, because they've lumped them in with ALL Meat Products and therefore Hiked the Prices up on them so even the cheap and nasty "Mystery Bag" is as expensive as a STEAK. I mean, can YOU imagine Sausages at $1. EACH? No! Because we don't HAVE to imagine it at all, because they really ARE $1. EACH. And they're the so-called Beef, Pork, etc. 'Flavoured' Sausages. And just WHAT do they mean by 'Flavoured' Sausages? Are they loaded with all sorts of fillings that are anything BUT Beef, Pork or Chicken, and just a Squirt of Beef, Pork or chicken JUICE? Its Obscene!! And, OUR Diary Products are also HUGELY Over Priced. MILK. Absolutely a TOTALLY Renewable Resource by the MILLIONS of GALLONS [5-Litres = 1 Gallon] EVERY DAY. And most of it goes overseas whether they want it or not, JUST to get the Money from it. All the while Fonterra are making VAST FORTUNES in Profits, which we KNOW is true, because they have the CHEEK to skite about it. And ALL SEVENTEEN of their big bosses get $1-Million a Year. What the TOP Boss gets is no doubt even more. What do they do with it? Look at the picture heading this Column! THAT is what you see in your local SUPERMARKETS Every DAY!! Those Flagons of Milk vary from $3. to $7. depending on WHO'S NAME is on the LABEL. ALL Milk is the same, except if its been WATERED DOWN and called "Lite", "Low Fat", etc. The Chinese add Melamine and call it "Calcium Enriched." Well, they USED to. Those bastards were literally SHOT for doing that anyway. And good riddance to BAD Rubbish! Poisoning babies for crying out loud. Geez, those Chinese are THICK!! NO! I am NOT being 'racist'! What about those STUPID Chinese who grow and produce GARLIC to be sent over seas, to US? There was a report that SOME of these mindless fools were "washing" their Garlic in. . . FORMALDEHYDE? Another was using STAGNANT Filthy water, sewerage if you please. No wonder their garlic is $2. for a Mesh Tube of EIGHT Bulbs. So you know what I mean, Tubes or Loose, LOOK OUT for the bulbs which have had their ROOTS scooped from the bottom of the bulb, using a sharp curved blade to make a Bowl Shape, and they're all nice and "clean." BEWARE of Chinese and Other ASIAN Products! I am SERIOUS!! I don't trust them, and you should be on your Guard. If you still don't believe me, just look at the really CRAP SHOES they make!! Back to the MAIN Subject. MILK. As I was saying, just looking at that picture above. ALL those different Brands of Milk, Cream, Butter, Cheese, etc. and they're ALL fighting to get the BIGGEST Price for their Brand. The Joke is, they're ALL FONTERRA, like HOLDEN is to Cars. Holden Kingswood? FONTERRA ANCHOR. HOLDEN STATESMAN? FONTERRA MAINLAND, etc. Its all about HOW it Looks on the Shelf and who its aimed at. Certain flash names for those who want their milk with a POSH name, and BUDGET or PAM'S for those who can't afford to muck around with flash names. Whatever their methods of absolutely OBSCENE Prices for Milk, its all blatant Profiteering. Australia's COLES has the right idea. $2. for 2 Litres of Milk PERMANANTLY!! That is, unless that has changed since I last saw their Specials Online. MILK is LIFE! Cheese is a great Substitute for MEAT when you can't afford it. I have a slice of Cheese with Raw Onion before I go to bed. Strange Dreams, but, WHO CARES? They're MY Dreams! Yoghurt is fairly expensive, too, so I use EasiYo and HANSELL'S Yoghurt Mix and make my own. My Favourite is Greek with Honey, and WOW, its Delicious!! I've stocked up with a few Packets of Yogurt Mixes on my shelf and I will never run out of it. I don't know a thing about Pro-Biotics, etc. I just know what's GOOD for me and Dairy is MY Life Saver. IF I have shocked the Food Nazi's, GOOD!! I'm not going to be dictated to by these FOOLS who have their own issues with food and try to force US to avoid what THEY don't like. We grew up on Dairy. FREE MILK at School in 300ml/Half Pint GLASS Bottles. Cheese by the Ton. Cheese Toasties, Mac 'n' Cheese, Cheese and Onion Pies, Cauliflower Cheese, PIZZAS, and many other Goodies. ALL of them Healthy. Just as long as you didn't have this EVERY Day. If you do, make sure you LOAD it with Healthy VEGES as well. DAIRY? YES PLEASE!! Reply

I make up my own yogurt, with an ezy yogurt maker from new zealand, and it does me each time for 4 days at least... you can get a good variety from supermarkets, in the packets, or from the firm directly, it depends on whether I have to pay postage, and then what it works out per packet. not taken with organic think it is just a lot dearer to buy it.
