The history of the consumption of dairy products

Have you ever wondered when the consumption of dairy products began?

According to recent discoveries explained in the article Why we "got milk?" from "Scientific American," the finding of abundant milk residues in pottery vessels from north-west Anatolian archaeological sites from the seventh millennium provided the earliest evidence of milk processing.

Prehistoric farmers of Central Europe set the stage for one of the most important food revolutions.

This crucial turning point not only allowed the preservation of milk products in a non-perishable and transportable form, but also it made milk a more digestible commodity for early prehistoric farmers communities.
