I bought organic milk today and noticed it is good until July 14 and this is the last of May! How can that be? Six weeks?
sort by best latest
Great answer! Voted up!
Thank you but it seems boiling would kind of take the organic and nutrition out of it. I thought organic was like the closest of from natural to mouth?
@woodmckinney thanks for the vote up. @Jackie Lynnley they only "boil" the milk for 2 - 4 seconds, this is ultra-pasteurization super heating the milk kills nearly all bacteria in the milk. All nutrients are still intact.
Great, thanks for explaining!
@Jackie Lynnley You're very welcome.
Your link is dead. UHT is used for on-the-shelf milk (and other products). No need to refrigerate until open. The logic of your answer seems flawed. If the milk had to travel, then shouldn't the shelf expiration date be about the same as non-organic?
@Casimiror Sorry the link is gone and I am not sure why they shut it down. As far as my answer, it has been well researched and my report is based on that research. Thanks for your comment.
Hm, well I would sure like an answer. Makes little sense to me. lol
That could be it, Alastar. I like to be saving but you figure with something lasting that long it is never going to waste and I don't want any of those hormones and bad stuff in my food! Thanks!
