Breast milk or formula? Now there's a brand new, ingenious option for parents to feed their babies: fair trade, grass fed, raw, unpasteurized Gorilla Milk from Barnana. Described by the company as "a nutritionally dense milk from Western Lowland Gorillas," CEO Caue Suplicy offers, “After spending time with western lowland gorillas in Africa, seeing their wild habitat being destroyed and after having the privilege to milk one myself – I am excited to bring mother gorillas’ milk to market for human consumption and save the lives of gorillas and their wild habitat.” Here at Inhabitots, we love that the gorilla's milk is packaged in an easy to tote, squeezable, resealable and recyclable pouch made from bamboo scraps leftover from panda exhibits at zoos. While we are all typically vegan, we'll be making an exception in the case of gorilla milk, in order to give our kids the best start possible in life. How exactly does one milk a gorilla, you ask? We were wondering the same thing! See the insightful video to learn how after the jump.
