To me anything UHT tastes toasty or malty (i.e. of malt, presumably lactose > maltose? or something).

Plus from the cow it's something like 4-5% fat.

What has more taste, food straight from the land, or the South Beach Diet? :) :wink:

I've been wondering about the availability of grass-fed beef in Singapore as well. Has anybody found a source? If not, I wonder if there is an opportunity for someone to start importing? I would be a customer...

I suspect there's just not the market to support importing it.

Look at the vast majority of food in SG, it's swill ingredients done up in fancy spices, knocked out at the lowest price possible. Rather like in the US, a successful dinner is one that is both huge and really cheap.

Grass-fed beef is becoming bigger and bigger here in the US as people realize the health benefits. I buy from a friend of mine who has a farm in CT and I wonder if he could find a market for shipping it to Singapore... Interesting to think about...

When you have friends to visit have them load up your freezer, that'd be my advice! :)

Room and board - 2 grass-fed dry-aged strip-loins a night

There is definitely a small market here for such things. I only bought grass fed in the US, but here I haven't been finding it. There are tons of expats here, even if the locals prefer cheap and tasty.

I have this wild cat that always comes in through my windows every day, no matter how many times I tell it you don't live here, :o it still comes, it followed us from our old apartment :) A cow, well that can be arranged too, though better to live on the ground floor, the milk curdles in the lift :-| Grass fed beef is great for body building and weight loss too in the right portions.

It's been a few years since the last post... Anyone found grass-fed beef or lamb?

These guys in Tiong Bahru https://www.facebook.com/FoodieMarketPlace do have grass fed beef.I do my monthly meat shopping here.


What do you do, freeze it?

How do you find that changes the quality?

i found organic milk sold in fair price 24hrs in Serangoon Nex, it was 6.5$ a Litre, its an Australian import.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

I try not to drink cow's milk unless it's raw (I love you, California!) but is that one of those long shelf-life ones in a carton or fresh milk in the refrigerated section?

Has anyone tried the local goat milk? http://www.haydairies.com.sg

It was in the refridgerated section, it wasn't the long life milk.
