This somehow increases the shelf life of milk sold to the consumer. I think I have realised when this is done, when shelf life is extended of organic stuff, usually that is a bad thing -- things get bad in food because it is nutrient dense, and homogenisation is like refining atta or rice..

And apparently research has also been pointed at whether this process,because it encourages smaller fat particles to stay in the milk, makes these stick to the arteries and thus lead to cardiac problems. Typically by causing arterial plaque build up.. it could explain why a lot of industrialized nations living with such food technologies suffer heart problems....
