did you know that you can still get small pox if you only drink ultra pasteurized milk, not the regular stuff like the milkmaids of old?

i'm starting the rumour right now!

How come they don't print the word "ultra pasteurized" right on the label?

All dairy containers should be labelled with either "Pasteurized" or "Ultra-Pasteurized"

Where are you looking? All dairy products sold to the general public, it says "Pasteurized" right on the front. Then it says "Ultra Pasteurized" at the bottom. Not all products are Ultra pasteurized though.

Dairy products sold to restaurants are only pasteurized, not always ultra pasteurized. That is at the request on the restaurant industry. Cream whips up much higher and they hold their peaks if it is not ultra.

Put your old man spectacles on and look harder at the container.

Just look at the paper cartons of milk the next time that you are in the grocery store, that's where you'll find the ultra pasteurized milk, I'm pretty sure that ultra isn't available in plastic. You can find regular pasteurized in paper cartons, but it is very often ultra.

I don't do this but my dad swears his gallon of milk lasts longer in the fridge by microwaving the whole jug of milk for up to a minute as soon as he gets it home from the market. He does this with other perishable items as well.

Oh my, this thread is just keeps getting rejuvenated. I changed the brand of milk I buy, and now it lasts at least two maybe even three weeks after the date.

When we go to Mexico, we can never find milk in the refrigerated section. It's all on the shelves, in boxes. Super ultra pasturized. It has an expiration date of up to a year, sometimes more.

It's semi-drinkable if very well-chilled.

First of all, the supermarket milk shelves aren't exactly that well chilled.
I try and buy milk last before checkout so that it's still chilled.

I've been doing this lately. When I get home, not a long ways from the supermarket, I put the milk carton in the freezer and let it chill down to just where it doesn't start freezing. Then I put it in the fridge.

Anyone do the same? It seems to make the milk last the 5-7 days past the exp. date (it's supposed to) without putting white spots on your glass or going really bad by then.

I don't know what it is, but milk in cartons used to last longer than they do now, at least 5-7 days past the exp date. And yes, I keep my fridge pretty cold too.

I think the reason is the supermarkets have lowered the temp of the area they keep milk, to save energy bills.
Not surprised it doesn't last that long after the expiry date!
