Is milk a homogenous mixture? Thanks-Elise
I think milk is heterogeneous mixture
There seems to be some disagreement on the Internet about milk is or is not a homogeneous mixture. The argument against it is that milk contains fat globules that can settle out; however, homogenized milk has made the fat globules so small that they are colloidal in nature and colloids don't settle out. I think milk is a homogeneous mixture since it is the same composition throughout.
Someone said on the interent that milk when comming directly from a cow is hetero, but when sold in stores, its homo.
