Ultra-pasteurized vs. Traditional Pasteurized: What's the Difference?

When you go to your local market to purchase milk products you’ll see most items are “ultra-pasteurized” and The Farmer’s Cow is not. Why and what’s the difference?

Ultra-pasteurized products are processed at an extremely high temperature. The advantage is that milk and cream can last longer to travel long distances and sit on the shelf longer without spoiling.

 But the ultra-high temperature also causes dairy products to lose a lot of their natural flavor. In fact some professional chefs say ultra-pasteurized products are “un-milk like.” Not words we want associated with The Farmer’s Cow!

Our milk and cream products are pasteurized the traditional way at much lower temperatures (at least 165F for 20 seconds). This is just enough to kill any harmful bacteria and yet still allow the milk to retain its farm-fresh flavor and unchanged natural proteins. And because we’re REAL LOCAL, the distance from our farms to the store is short, which gives you the best nutritional value, farm-freshest taste and generates the smallest carbon footprint for the environment.
