وَإِنَّ لَكُمْ فِي ٱلأَنْعَامِ لَعِبْرَةً نُّسْقِيكُمْ مِّمَّا فِي بُطُونِهِ مِن بَيْنِ فَرْثٍ وَدَمٍ لَّبَناً خَالِصاً سَآئِغاً لِلشَّارِبِينَ

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And truly for you there is in the cattle a lesson, an example to learn from. We give you to drink — [this introduces] the explanation of the ‘lesson’ — of that which is in their bellies, the cattle’s [bellies], from (min indicates a new subject and is semantically connected to nusqīkum, ‘We give you to drink’) between the refuse, the intestinal waste, and the blood, pure milk, uncontaminated by either the refuse or the blood, neither in its taste, odour or colour, even though it [the milk] is [situated] between the two, palatable to drinkers, easily passing down their throats, not causing any choking.
