When we talk about milk, the word that usually prefixes it is ‘fresh’. But how do you know whether your glass of milk is actually farm fresh?
The truth is, you don’t!
With advances in science, it is now possible to increase the shelf-life of milk without impacting the taste and texture in a noticeable way. Most mass-market milk is either thermalized, sterilized or dehydrated (converted to milk powder which is reconstituted or mixed with water before being packaged for delivery) to keep it ‘fresher’ for longer and make it easier to manage the supply-chain.
Organic farm fresh milk or raw milk is made up of 87% water while the other 13% comprises of the different nutritional elements including fat, proteins and essential vitamins and minerals. The concentration of these nutrients is highest in fresh, organic milk and depletes over time. According to a study, 30% of vitamin A is lost during a storage of 5-6 weeks and almost all of the Vitamin B6, B12 and C is lost after prolonged storage. (1)
