Do you boil the milk before drinking?
When you purchase milk, Do you boil it before drinking. I have seen people doing so but I don't find any solid reason as to why people do it
If you live in a place where the milk you get is not reliably free of harmful amounts of biological contaminants, then it makes sense to sterilize before using it. If you are making cheese, yoghurt, sour cream or some other similar food from it, then you need to heat it to at least 180F to kill off undesirable bacteria and rearrange the enzymatic structure so it will cure properly. Other than those two, I know of no reason.
Milk is already Pasteurized in most places unless it is coming straight off a farm. I believe it is illegal to sell un-Pasteurized milk in the US. I could be wrong.
Milk will spoil very quickly if it isn't Pasteurized.
But no I have never boiled milk as a sanitary measure.
no, fresh milk is safe to be drank from the paper box. Never heard of boiling the milk except goat milk from the farm.
Some people warm a glass of milk and drink it just before going to bed as it helps in cases of insomnia. If you drink raw (unpasturized) milk, you might want to boil it. Otherwise, heating should not be necessary.
No, where we live (USA) milk is pasteurized so safe to drink without boiling.
The milk I buy in Brazil is sterilized. It is UHT (ultra high temperature).
However, I have bought it straight from the farm, and no, I didn't boil it. We didn't get ill, nor did anyone I know. Perhaps we were lucky.
No, I don't boil milk to drink but if I will make a milky coffee then I will boil it.
If you milk is not pasteurized then boiling it would insure it was safe to drink. If you just go to a store like Walmart here in the U.S then there wold be real reason to boil it, other then personal taste.
