If you donâ€™t trust your nose or your taste buds, thereâ€™s a new product being developed that will tell you when your milk has gone sour. Itâ€™s the Cravendale milk jug, and hereâ€™s how it works: A sensor built into the base measures the acidity of the milk. The sensor is linked to an LCD screen on the side of the jug, and it gives you a message â€œFreshâ€ or â€œSour.â€Â In addition, an alarm system alerts you when the milk sours.
The Cravendale milk jug was developed by designer Oliver Newberry with the Research and Development team of Cravendale, a major UK dairy. Representatives from the company say that Brits throw away a massive amount of milk, partly because of uncertainty about its quality and safety. This discarded â€œlakeâ€ of milk, in addition to wasting the money of consumers, is a creator of carbon dioxide emissions that are harmful to the environment.
Where can you get a Cravendale milk jug? Nowhere at the moment. Itâ€™s still in the research and development stages. But keep a close eye on the Cravendale website, and youÂ could be the first person in your neighborhood to own this high-tech milk jug.
Final comment: Isnâ€™t it commendable that a company in the business of selling milk would be discouraging consumers from wasting it and then buying more?
