Do you know why Milk is white in color?

Casein, which comprise 80% of protein in cow’s milk forms micellar structure together with calcium & phosphate ions.

When light passes through homogenized whole milk these tiny particles along with fat globules suspended throughout milk tend to scatter the light all towards our eyes, making milk look white.

On the other hand, skim milk shows bluish ting as fat globules have been removed & there are now fewer particles in suspension to scatter light.
