Clover intolerance

Well as a Petaluma resident who often hears about the dust-ups around Clover (and who adores Clover's punny groan inducing advertising), this is a fascinating observation: RT Adrianna Tan @skinnylatte@hachyderm.io

Almost all SE Asian immigrants I know in California are deeply lactose intolerant only to the horrible Clover milk they use in cafes and restaurants here. Strauss, Alexandre etc are fine.

Reminded of this as I see the Indonesian cafe I like (Kopiku) say they serve lactose-free milk. I’d prefer Strauss, but that’s better than Clover. I don’t understand the science (some people think it has to do with A1/A2 proteins but the science is unclear). European, Aussie, Japanese milk is fine.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
