So what exactly is Shelf Safe Milk?
From the Milk Unleashed Website “Shelf safe milk is Grade A fluid milk that requires no refrigeration until the package is opened, thanks to ultra pasteurization and special Tetra Pak cartons that preserve all the wholesome goodness of milk. Now kids can get the vitamins and nutrients of milk anytime, anywhere.” This technology is not new, and has been used in Europe for many years!
A big part of the shelf safe milk process comes from the packaging. It has 6 layers of protection that will ensure your milk will be fresh and tasty for much longer than traditional milk. There is also no preservatives in shelf safe milk, it’s just heated and sealed! Bonus, the cartons used for shelf safe milk are recyclable!
