Enjoying spicy foods can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, the spice takes the flavor up a notch, but after a while, the heat can start to feel volcanic. So what does one do? Give up? Throw away the meal, perhaps? Absolutely not! Enter your tried-and-true friend, milk!
June 1st is World Milk Day and Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) wants you to know that milk isn’t just for your breakfast cereal, it’s also a useful heat-cutting agent when eating spicy foods. Plus, milk can help cut the heat for the planet, too!
Thanks to DFA and its Nerd Herd of dairy farmers, veterinarians, engineers, scientists – and many other smart individuals – milk is made in a way that reduces emissions that heat the planet, like changing cows’ diets, so they burp less.
In a pairing that feels unexpected yet meant to be (like hot wings and milk), DFA’s Nerd Herd teamed up with Complex’s Sean Evans to bring the ultimate Sean Evans interview. So today, feel confident that when you take that bite out of your favorite hot wing, milk will be there as the perfect wingman to moooove the spice along.
