Best Answer

Modified milk ingredients can be any form of chemically modified milk sources to extract whey milk proteins, calcium, fat, casein and other milk components. The result is usually in the form of a powder or a paste. Modified milk ingredients is often used in mass-produced ice cream to replace actual cream. Modified milk ingredients come from New Zealand and Europe. It is a way for these countries to export milk products to Canada and the US without being hit by quotas and tariffs that strictly govern the import of milk products in North America. Since North American milk is price controlled by the government, using foreign modified milk ingredients reduces the cost of manufactured food products in Canada and the US that require milk. Using chemically modified milk ingredients in combination with gums, thickeners and emulsified oils is also the only way of producing 0% fat ice cream and cheese.

In Canada, companies making ice cream made of modified milk ingredients can no longer label their products as "ice cream", having to resort to the appellation "Frozen Dessert".

Does a platypus's sweat contain milk?

Yes and no. In monotremes, which includes the platypus, there are mammary glands but no teats. When producing the milk, the mother excretes milk out of pores in the skin and the young platypuses lick the milk off the abdomen. The mother has grooves specifically designed to keep milk that is excreted out. These glands from which the milk is secreted are modified sweat glands on the platypus's abdomen. In all mammals, the mammary glands are really little more than modified sweat glands, but it's the the absence of nipples which is more obvious in platypuses. Interestingly, the male platypus's venom gland is also a modified sweat gland.

It's a modified sweat gland. Milk is essentially modified sweat, which is produced by mammary glands. Sebaceous glands produce sebum, which is this oily substance designed to lubricate skin and hair. This prevents the cells from drying out.
