Question: What Is the pH of Milk?
Do you know whether milk is considered an acid or a base? Here's a look at the pH of milk.
Answer: The pH of a glass of cow milk ranges from 6.4 to 6.8. Milk is slightly acidic. Milk from other bovines and non-bovine mammals varies in composition, but has a similar pH. The pH of milk changes over time. As milk goes sour, it becomes more acidic and the pH gets lower.
