Is Pig Milk Kosher?

Is Pig milk kosher? The answer is - yes! Just like honey that is made by bees (unclean swarmers), pig's milk is also kosher. I know that some of you may find idea disgusting, but Torah does not prohibit that, so you can, technically, drink pig's milk. As long as the pig is alive, some of its products (milk) is kosher or clean. The pig itself, even alive, is unclean of course.

A fun fact from Jewish tradition: cookies or other food made to look like a pig or taste like a pig is also kosher. Torah does not care about looks and taste.

So as you can see, Written Torah is a very tricky book. You have to be very careful when analysing the text of the Torah.
