Ultra-pasteurized milk is VILE!

Who the hell drinks this crap? I accidentally put some in my coffee at work without reading the label. It is an abomination and a desecration of the goodness that nature provides. This shit tastes like non-dairy creamer. I say it should be banned.

Ok, rant over.

  1. I do. The milk I have smells pleasantly grassy to me. Doesn't remind me of creamer at all.

    1. The Darigold brand of milk here is ultra-pasteurized. I didn't realize it when I bought some a few months ago. I could instantly pick up a richer, fuller taste to it that I really enjoyed, and reminded me of the 'extra-rich' milk served at one of the bakeries we went to when I was young.

      1. Most of the organic milk is UHT. I think it tastes fine

          I'm no scientist but I don't think UHT = ultra-pasteurized. Having said that, I think they're both vile, UHT more so. I won't touch either with a 10-foot pole, at least not on purpose. Why can't we go back to how things were just 10 years or so ago when 99% of milk sold in markets was pasteurized? Ultra-pasteurization is creating a whole generation of people who will not know how milk should taste (not that pasteurized milk is so wonderful, either, but it's vastly better).

            I worry more about radioactive milk, but maybe that's just me.
            Ya don't know what good milk tastes like until you've had some from Lancaster.

            Much of the organic milk I have tastes is awful. I think the culprit is palmitate. I buy and enjoy Natire's Promise which is the grocery chain's organic store brand. Not sure if it is ultra pasteurized.
