    $\begingroup$ (short hint) "These chylomicrons then pass into the lacteals, forming a milky substance known as chyle." .... Wikipedia. Seemingly it is due to Tyndall effect from coloidal nature of Chylomicrons $\endgroup$ Jan 7, 2017 at 12:52
  • $\begingroup$ Tyndall effect makes a sense but still not clear. Cause according to these informations that milky color occurs in lacteals that is a part of lymphatic system and we dont get the serum from lymphatic vessels actually we obtain the serum from the blood. $\endgroup$
