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!

Full cream milk (Bessie works hard to make it, it should be enjoyed to the fullest), cream, yoghurt, cheese (cow or sheep)

Dairy is the most unhealthy product that you can put in your body. It contains casein which is linked to causing cancer.

Milk yes and lots of different types of cheeses. The reason is because we have been substituting our meat with cheeses and other non meat proteins. Other diary we get are yogurt and ice cream. As for probiotic drinks we get these rarely and would prefer kobucha over it. We also get a lot of non diary milks as well such as coconut, almond and soy

When I shop, I have to admit for milk, I buy 4 cartons of uht at one time, this gives me enough milk for 6 to 7 weeks, and I can have coffee, and cereal plenty of times. I like a variety of cheeses, and will buy three or four when I do buy, so that the variety is in the fridge... 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.

I buy Milk, Yoghurt and Cheese. I have tried the probiotic products and I do not think they are worth the money you spend on them. I usually buy natural Greek Yoghurt which I find is better as I can add to it what I want and I can also usual it in cooking.

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!!

I buy the woolworths pribiotics as they are a bit cheaper than the other brands. I usually only buy them when my son is not eating properly, been on antibiotics or just not feeling well.
I honestly dont know if they do what they say? How can i tell if there really are live cultures in this drink....same as yoghurts?
They are very expensive, especially the name brands. I suppose its blind faith that they work and are good for us.

Having a problem with dairy products and lactose intolerance, as well as sinus issues, especially, I am so thrilled to see more A2 milk products available.I use the A2 milk, powdered milk , yoghurt, ice cream and the Liddell cheese and cream cheese.These products have made my life more satisfying.

Light milk, cheeses... block, sliced and soft. Yogurt, butter, cream, sour cream, philly creme cheese.
I have tried those little probiotic drinks, was recommended to me.
It was good tasting easy to use but i thought it was a little costly to keep buying it each week.

Cheese and milk are the two dairy foods I eat most of. Mild cheese is a good protein source. Full cream milk is good in tea and coffee. I'll try probiotic dairy products at some stage but I can't yet say much about them. Our family also eat yoghurt sometimes, and full cream on desserts.

  • 6th Dec 2016 08:27pm

Milk, cheese (block & Parmesan), butter, fresh cream, sour cream and yoghurt.
More interesting cheeses are bought if we're entertaining (or desperate for something blue-ish)

shelly47
  • 13th Nov 2016 10:40pm

Our staple dairy is daily regular whole milk, tasty cheese, Parmesan cheese a few times a week and occasional yogurt or cream and sour cream. I use cream cheese sometimes in recipes for the occasional sweet treat. Also fancy cheeses and ice cream if we are entertaining. Probiotic yogurt I have tried but I prefer the ones with fruit most, but don't have very often.

Intolerant to dairy but do buy some goat cheeses so long as they're not egg washed. I do buy A2 for my husband. Most dairy is replaced with coconut cream or milk but sometimes this gets a bit rich. I also use oat milk.

  • 28th Jun 2016 09:05pm

hi, if this is the actual dairy industry asking, can i just make a suggestion. I buy marg, sour cream, regular cream and greek yoghurt about every two weeks. 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

We have a local small dairy that produce great jersey milk, I also buy plenty of cheese (normal tasty and lots of soft cheese) the soft/gourmet cheeses are made locally too using the same jersey milk that I use for cereal/tea/coffee.
Natural yoghurt is a staple in our house.

bettythrelfo
  • 7th Dec 2015 11:56am

I love to buy all the different cheeses and try them, not sure that I like goats cheese, but then I think it is a taste you acquire... Love all the bits in cheese, and like the fruit cheeses, but funnily enough only at xmas, with other items as well. Y es I buy milk, but I prefer the uht it is easier to store, and I am not allergic to it... I make my own yogurt some times, and buy if I see really market down... Like greek yogurt, and have been know n to add some pineapple to it as well. dont buy butter too expensive, but do buy coles own margerine which is cheaper, and goes a lot further... bread I watch for specials and also have a breadmaker and make my own lots of times... trouble is the electricity bill goes high when I do.

I buy goat natural yogurt with no sugar some times but I do not consume dairy product because they are not good for my helth. 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.

I always purchase home rand low fat milk, Mozarella sprinkle cheese (I use this on a lot of items which I cook) PHILLY COOKING CREAM IS A ' MUST HAVE' in my refrigerator as I also use this not only in cooking sauces etc. for savoury meals however have also discovered that it is totally awesome as a substitute for cream with deserts, cake etc!! (the taste reminds me of the very old-fashioned scalded cream which I loved! ) it also lasts forever in,the refrigerator, which is also a great thing as I mainly use it when my children come for dinner and I am serving desert! (they also have been converted to this instead of cream!)
Next I purchase a 'cholesterol lowering spread or an olive oil based one. I also like to keep REAL BUTTER in my refrigerator as I feel a little of everything is the 'way to go' and some items just simply need good old butter!
I have tried probiotics, however for my budget I ifind them to be too expensive.
I also add a packet of ordinary cheese slices as my dog loves to have one as a treat!! (spoilt!!)
Apart from that on occasion, I will maybe purchase Camembert which I love, or another type of cheese such as Colby which is another favourite!
I will do this more often when I am celebrating a special occasion with my family! - MOI ������������

I buy milk because I prefer my coffee with milk in it. I considered just ge I think the milk gives me some calcium ans as I do not buy any other dairy products I think the milk is probably a good idea.

I buy full cream milk for my husband and daughter, I drink lite milk and I buy a lactose intolerant milk for my son as the other milks were making him feel sick. Cheese is another staple, usually low fat, cream, sour cream. I was buying yoghurt but I now make my own in the easyo maker, mostly make the Greek and honey one.I used to buy and drink the Yakult but feel it wasn't really making any difference. I think yoghurt provides a better source.

I do not consume any dairy--humans are NOT designed to consume dairy products and ALL the health issues they cause, proves it !!

Some people class eggs as dairy--I DO consume eggs.

As for probiotics it is ideal to purchase a really good brand--and Yakult is CRAP. Dairy FREE Inner Health Plus is ok and a Naturopath / Homeopath has an excellent range and specialized ones too !!

I purchase milk, cheese, cream, sour cream, lactose free milk. I have tried probiotic diary products and no they are not worth the money. Sure they are new but I can't justify the fancy bottles, wish wash brain wash names. I go back to basic products without the advertising and strategic merchandising in the fridges at my local store.

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.

CHEESE - Lots of good variety and price ranges. Staples for me are the grated cheese blends, creamy blues, bries and camemberts. 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.

  • 12th Dec 2014 10:28am

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.

-- milk, cheese,yoghurt,cream cheese, ricotta cheese, and occasionally cream --- limit the cheese to 2 slices a day, buy plain yoghurt ad add your own flavours - vanilla, banana, strawberries, blueberries - the banana gives the sweetness without adding sugar.-- Cream cheese - also use sparingly instead of margarine, and use for cheesecakes - with the ricotta, and make icing with lemonjuice - yum !!...make your own dips with cream cheese, adding avocado, or sweet chilli sauce, or gherkin spread, etc. Use Cream Cheese on savoury biscuits with a sprinkle of a little powder soup mix, and top with tomato,or cucumber or celery,or radish and parsley etc......

We don't buy anything in this category at all. Although there are dairy substitutes out there, we've given these up years ago too. I do take probiotic products, like saurkraut, but this is always dairy-free & I find it very effective. The results are very much worth the money & I'd prefer taking whole foods over taking probiotics & prebiotics in capsule form.

Yeah milk cheese and yogurt are the main dairy products we usse in our house. dairy is a good source of calcium and consumed in moderation is perfect to make sure you have a healthy well balanced diet. i milked cows on the family dairy farm for 19 years which is intensive labouring and with that comes the odd trip or fall motorbike accident and the like and to this day have never broken a bone in my body and trust me with car and bike accidents throughout my life where i shoulda been dead only slight cuts and bruises never a broken bone. i have always wondered why curiously i askd a doc an he went over my life and basically put it down to a high protein and calcium diet. breakfast lunch and dinner we would have some sort of dairy inntake and im glad i did. it doesnt matter howya have it or what form its in dairy imo is a lifesaver!!!

We don't actually drink a heap of milk in our household -- we prefer yogurt (especially greek yogurt) and will actually mix that in with our cereal instead of using milk. Cheese we use in cooking a lot so that's always on the list. I don't think I've ever tried probiotic dairy products but I would be open to trying them.

Actually, milk only makes it into my grocery basket occassionally and I prefer Paul's Organic milk (which, by the way lasts for at least three weeks past the use by date, so is excellent value for money for someone like me who hardly drinks it!) or A2, if I do buy milk. 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. And I make my own yoghurt - full fat, creamy and delicious but I never allow myself to overindulge, just a little every now and then.

Hi there, we have milk, cheese and yoghurt and ice cream,butter. All so important well not the ice cream so much more of a comfort food that one. Dairy is needed for calcium and also with a teenage son in house we need the milk and cheese and yoghurt. 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

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

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.

My staples are simple and weight watching.

But it is then wise to drink/eat it immediately, as the ice melts and makes the mixture very watery.

When I go to the shops, yes milk is a given, then cheese and butter. Yoghurt often as well, but cream not as often. I find that when I buy it, no one eats it and it goes off... 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

Always milk, cheese, butter and yoghurt. Almost never buy reduced fat yoghurt as they add too many fillers and things to get the rich feel back in. Weird things that we probably shouldn't eat. Full fat milk too. When I want to limit myself, I have less milk in coffee rather than skim.

I always have milk, shredded tasty cheese, plain Greek yoghurt and vanilla ice cream in my fridge. I also either have cream cheese or cottage cheese.

I have tried a couple different brands of probiotic yoghurt drinks when they are at a reduced price when they are close to their use by date. They taste nice, great for a quick treat, not worth full price, but they are very easily digested.

Usually I buy a lot of full cream, long life milk, cheese in blocks, and grated cheese, plus real butter and some soft spreadable butter. 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?

Yes, I think everyone buys and needs milk....we tend to buy the long-life milk, cheese, (cheddar) and butter endorsed by the heart foundation preferably. We have tried probiotic products occasionally, although they are quite pricey. We stay up in Darwin and prices are higher than down south, but I do think some probiotic products are worth their weight i.e. yoghurts...

Hi, We use long life milk, because it is easy to have in the cupboard and ready to go.
We also use block cheese and sliced cheese every day. We buy yoghurt every second week. We buy icecream every month. Don't use probiotics as I think they are a waste of money.

Milk of course, but also I have recently started buying yogurt as I have been into making smoothies. In regards to probiotics, I don't usually shop for that. I have had them before, but are not my staple dairy product. I do think they are reasonable for the price.

Milk both low fat and full cream is a staple in our house, so is cheese and yogurt like it is for many other people. However I struggle to digest dairy so often buy A2 milks or lactose free dairy products. I also buy probiotic dairy products and although they are more expensive they are well worth the money as both me and my family always fee generally better when we are using them compared to when we are not.

I think probiotics are very important particularly if taking antibiotics which are very hard on the stomach. Probiotics restore the good bacteria in the gut.

Milk, yoghurt, cheese. Always no fat or low fat, with as few additives as possible. 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.

Hi . yogurt is good for your health. Good source of calcium. But I have heard daily intake of yogurt will keep your tummy fat away. I try to have it every day

Milk is produced by a cow for her calf that she is trying to grow as quickly as possible. Milk is for fast growth so its little wonder people get fat eating it.

I am allergic to milk, fresh that is, but not uht, and I have trouble with some of the products on the market as well, like most cheeses, and even custards ... This does limit what I can eat, but sometimes I say :blow I am going to have it anyway" and suffer the consequences.

milk and cheese are a must for us. i agree, greek style yoghurt is one of the underrated dairy products, i love it and its good for you. still like sour cream for tacos, baked potatoes (greek yoghurt with chives is good too) and pumpkin soup, but its not good for you so, occasionally is better.

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 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.

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?
