I hadn’t realized this key fact about the production of Greek yoghurt. It produces far more waste than conventional yoghurt production. It takes 3 cups of milk to produce one cup of the product! (That’s about thrice as much as conventional yoghurt, which contains far more fluid than does the Greek version of the yoghurt.)
Whether you drink 4, 6, 8 or 12 glasses of water a day- we all know it’s critical to stay hydrated. And, despite the fact that i used to drink 20, 30, or 40 cups of coffee a day- that was not the way to hydrate one’s body. (I don’t drink that much coffee anymore- nor do I drink any pop.)
We know the next big series of wars is going to be over water. And, no, I’m not talking about how neighbors in California will be fighting over their water allocations (or even California fighting with Colorado). I’m talking about the vast portions of this Earth that are basically out of water.
You know that I spend a lot of time at a local coffee spot. Because I write about it all the time. So, it shouldn’t surprise you that I really enjoy coffee, as well. After all, we do know that US scientists and lab techs (both better known as research rats) are the heaviest coffee drinkers in the US. Plus, I’ve written about the new UCDavis program incorporating coffee technology into the ChemE program.
