Clean milk is a name used to refer to milk created by technological means without the need for cows. It must be distinguished from plant-based “milks” – drinks approximating milk made from the likes of soy, nuts, rice, coconut, and so forth – as it aims to replicate dairy at a molecular level. The most notable producer of clean milk is Perfect Day (formerly Muufri), a biotechnology start-up funded by New Harvest, a charitable organization that has also funded research into the development of clean (in vitro) meat. However, home biohackers – including those associated with the US-based Real Vegan Cheese project – are pursuing similar goals. Perfect Day’s milk is set to be commercially launched in 2018, somewhat sooner than even optimistic launch dates for clean meat products.
