 The answer is apparently "because we're actually able to eat it

 Fun fact: white people (specifically Northern European white people) have
 a genetic mutation that allows them to digest lactose even after weaning,
 which is abnormal for all mammals and also most humans. It's theorized
 that because Northern Europe doesn't get a lot of sun, an alternative
 source of vitamin D (like milk) would be a useful trait. It's a very recent
 mutation that would only have happened after humans started
 domesticating animals like cows and goats.

 oh no, my bizarre moment has come, cause lactose tolerance is actually A
 Thing I Know About because it's played a fascinating role in human
 evolution for thousands of years. This chart displays some of the broad
 trends, but it's giving near continental averages, which doesn't showcase
 how this kind of thing really breaks down and some of the surprising
 exceptions
