To the Hititor of Kveninq Leilgei :
Sir I read with considerable Interest tho
statement on tnnned milk attributed to
Dr William U Griggs In an article ap
pearing on the woman's page of j-our p'i
per on Krldas lust Cnless Doctor Urlggs
Is very much misquoted, his statements
are partis If not cntlrelj wrong, ns he Is
unfair to sour readers, the consumers and
producers of some types of canned milk.
Clnbslfylng nil canned milk with bonbons,
lobsters and Ugnrcttes as food for babies
shows either utter foolishness or a thor
ough lack of knowledge on his part.
Doctor Wslio asserts that sterll
l7etl, unswceteneil, evaporated milk (also
packed in cans), when modified, serves ns
equal of perfectly fresh milk
der conditions which would be nlmoat Im
possible in their own homes, retaining tho
full food value of tho milk fats, and all
other Ingredients. This tlnss of canned
milk contains no sweetening, except the
until nil milk sugar. It Is processed from
pure, fresh cow's milk, and subject to
tests before prep irlng that are equally
If not moro rigid that the test applied to
fresh milk entering Philadelphia under
tho present laws The milk Is evnporatcd
in vacuum nt n low temperature, and Im
mcdlatcls put In clenn cans nnd sealed
Steam heat Is applied In the sterllzing
Links, with tho cans and contents con
stnntls In motion, destroying all bacteria
nnd spores. The process insures a perfect
sterile milk without the destruction of
nny of tho food value Doctor Griggs
will lind by nn.tlizlng evaporated milk
that tho food value of the butter fats and
tho other ingredients are letnlned
