These are the 8 types of milk mentioned in the classical text.
We would love to hear which type of milk is your favourite (including plant based milk).
It is quiet amazing to see how detailed the Ayurvedic knowledge is.
It states that the qualities of the milk greatly varies depending on the diet of the animal and the time of milking the animal. Yes good quality food is important for humans and animals
