Popular snack food company 'banana' is set to release the first line of mass-produced gorilla's milk products. In recent years, consumers have become more comfortable drinking milk from animals such as goats and sheep. Now there is a new option for those looking for a more nutrient-dense dairy product.

'Gorilla Milk' is a new fair trade dairy product made from raw primate milk. The milk is procured from grass-fed Western Lowland Gorillas found in central Africa. The milk is raw and unpasteurized, making it an alternative to heavily processed dairy products. While the idea of gorilla's milk may sound unusual, using the animals for their milk actually helps to save and repopulate the rapidly dwindling gorilla population.

The product is largely targeted at consumers who are open to alternative forms of dairy that are beneficial for wildlife and the environment.
