Just about all milk in Australia is homogenised. Forced at high pressure through fine pipes, the cream becomes evenly dispersed. Homogenised milk is whiter and has a thinner mouthfeel than unhomogenised milk.
Fact: most people prefer homogenised milk!
In unhomogenised milk, cream will rise to the top when it stands for any length of time. Such milk is also widely regarded as more flavoursome (in the homogenised variety, aromatic fatty molecules are surrounded by virtually flavourless proteins) but can go sour more rapidly.
Purists swear by the richer, fuller flavour of unhomogenised milk; many people prefer homogenised milk because they've become accustomed to its milder taste.
