So why don’t we ultra pasteurize all our milk?
Let’s not turn up the heat during every pasteurization process just yet. UHT-treated milk doesn’t quite taste the same as regularly pasteurized milk, because it’s doesn’t have the same “fresh” quality.
The bottom line is that organic milk doesn’t necessarily last longer. So whether you shop organic or go with conventional, if you’re a cash-strapped Millennial who can’t count on herself to finish a carton within a week, we recommend going for the latest expiration date possible -- that organic price tag may actually be worth it if it means you’ll waste less.
