GIANT dairy company Arla, has launched Arla BOB, or Best of Both – fat-free milk that tastes, says the firm, as good as semi-skimmed. The new product’s bottle features a yellow cap on top.
A spokesperson for the farmer-owned dairy co-operative said it had spent three years developing the technology to produce Arla BOB. It involves collecting some naturally occurring protein in milk and adding it back into skimmed milk to deliver a taste and texture like semi-skimmed but in a product that is fat-free. It also uses Arla’s PurFiltre process in production to ensure it lasts longer without spoiling in the fridge.
