Raw Milk, Tetra Packs, Package Milk: Which Milk Should You Pick?
Fresh(Raw) milk – Raw milk is the unpasteurized, whole milk that is in no way refined. Local dairies carry them to our doors too.
Organic – Organic means that the cattle’s feed is unadulterated (not contaminated with pesticides or chemicals). Also, cows and buffaloes for more milk are often not treated with hormones or drugs at the dairies.
Inorganic – Inorganic, on the other hand, is where the cattle are fed adulterated food, and even the condition in which they are held is low.
Why maybe that’s bad?
Throughout rural areas, the distribution of raw milk from local dairies is higher than in urban areas, due to the consistency and nutritional value of this milk. This does not mean, however, this raw milk either lacks nutrition or is bad. It simply means that the environment in which the milk is processed may not be clean or sanitized, resulting in hazardous results.
Packet milk – Packaged milk is the pasteurized, homogenized version of Dairy. Pasteurization means that milk is heated and then quickly cooled to get rid of bacteria and impurities at a temperature regulated. It comes in three types, toned, bicolored and full-cream.
Types – Full cream milk is not diluted and is not pasteurized and homogenized. This milk is tanned and double toned in the distilled version. These three types differ in the concentration of nutrients and in the amount of calories. Packet milk is available in the urban as well as rural areas.
Tetra-packs – Using either UHT (ultra-high temperatures) or HTST (high-temperature short time), the milk is heated for just a few seconds at a specified high temperature and then cooled down and instantly packed aseptically into tetra packs.
Six layers – Preferably, tetra-packs provide six layers of milk defense. Longevity of tetra-pack milk is greater than that of two other counterparts: raw milk and dried milk.
Which choice is safest?
Although various studies have been conducted on comparing these three forms of milk available on the market, most studies point to tetra-packs as the safest alternative. The quality of raw milk in India is being called into question when it comes to packaged milk, the BPA contained in plastic is known to disrupt hormones and can therefore lead to many diseases. This is because this BPA will leak into our milk when this plastic comes into contact with sunlight, and thus get polluted.
