Honest Disclosure: Milking equipment is cleaned with a bleach solution. This is part of our milk safety protocols. It is flushed with very hot water afterwards, so, if there were any residue, it would be in trace amounts. Veal rennet contains trace amounts of sodium acetate, propylene glycol, and potassium sorbate. Culture contains trace amounts of maltodextrin. Packaged in plastic, which can leech chemicals into the milk.
