Buy organic milk instead of regular It lasts a whole lot longer
Though priced higher than the conventional milk, organic milk is quite worthy for the bucks spent. Be it the nutritional significance of higher PUFA and omega 3 fatty acid content in contrast to regular variety that has more omega 6 fatty acid. It can last up to six months on the shelf unopened. This is because in the difference of treatment processes employed. Organic milk is processed using Ultra High Temperature (UHT) that kills all the bacteria. While regular milk is pasteurized this kills not all but the harmful ones. UHT treatment is given as the organic milk has to be transported to places where organic farming isn t practiced.
