Is organic milk, if uht or "ultra" pasteurized still better then conventional milk?

Is organic milk, if uht or "ultra" pasteurized still better then conventional milk?

Who is drinking it?: Milk organic or regular is a source of protein/calcium. Allergic sensitivity and lactose intolerance is of higher concern for -1/3 of caucasians and 2/3 of other races. Ulta pastuerized is safer from unanticipated bacteria but looses many of its natural cultures. Fresher is better, organic has advantage of being better for the animals producing, who may pass it on as they would to their own calf.

Which milk is better for my 2yr old baby: Long life milk (UHT) or fresh (pasteurized) milk?

Which milk is better for my 2yr old baby: Long life milk (UHT) or fresh (pasteurized) milk?

Very similar: UHT milk can be deficient in Vit B12, C, and thiamine, but otherwise has a slightly longer shelf life and is very similar nutritionally to HTST, or conventionally pasteurized milk. So the answer is go with the fresh pasteurized milk if nutrition is the main concern

Is it necessary to boil fresh milk even if it's pasteurized and hygienically packed? What's the difference between long life milk and fresh milk?

Is it necessary to boil fresh milk even if it's pasteurized and hygienically packed? What's the difference between long life milk and fresh milk?

Pasteurization: Is flash heat sterilization, so no to first question. Fresh milk is not sterilized, so you have a chance of contracting bacterial infection. Some believe that this process can destroy some nutrients. I think pasteurized milk is safer.

Yes: Yes it is safe. Remember our statement is nothing is truly safe except air and water and we are not really sure about them. To my knowledge there is nothing in the literature that states yogurt is harmful. Congratulations and have a healthy pregnancy

Which milk is better for my 2yr old baby: Formula, Normal pasteurized Cow Milk or UHT Long Life Cow Milk?

Which milk is better for my 2yr old baby: Formula, Normal pasteurized Cow Milk or UHT Long Life Cow Milk?

Milk: Formula is not appropriate for a 2 year old, and unpasteurized milk increases the risk of Listeria infection. Organic whole milk gets my vote.

Is almond milk pasteurized? Is it safe to drink whilst pregnant as the milk cartons for almond milk do not say that it's pasteurized

Is almond milk pasteurized? Is it safe to drink whilst pregnant as the milk cartons for almond milk do not say that it's pasteurized

Yes, safe: California produced almonds are required to be pasteurized prior to sale by 1 of 3 methods: Roasting or blanching, steam or Polyethylene oxide contact. The almonds are then ground finely and mixed with water in clean vessels to produce the milk. I cannot comment on almond milk produced outside the USA. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

I ate out tonight and had a glass of pasteurized skim milk. As soon as I took a sip, I realized it was spoiled. I'm 31 weeks preg. Any damage to baby?

I ate out tonight and had a glass of pasteurized skim milk. As soon as I took a sip, I realized it was spoiled. I'm 31 weeks preg. Any damage to baby?

Spoiled milk: It should not since the milk was pasturized -kills pathologic bacteria. Some bacteria remain ,but should not be pathologic. So do not worry, probability is very low .if pregnant avoid deli meats, uncooked fish((lox.sushi), raw eggs, soft unpasturized cheeses, and even ice cream( listeria) F/u with doc http://news.cornell.edu/stories/2012/07/scientists-find-new-culprits-spoil-mi

Im 13w pregnant. Ingredient label on my cheese says cheese not pasteurized but milk used to make it is. What does that mean? Is it safe?

Uncertain: Most cheese is made with pasteurized milk and is safe. If your cheese is made with a combination of pasteurized and unpasteurized ingredients, i would recommend not eating it.

I read that pasteurized milk, has its protein denatured, in which the structure changes and cant be absorbed in the intestines.is milk protein useless?

I read that pasteurized milk, has its protein denatured, in which the structure changes and cant be absorbed in the intestines.is milk protein useless?

Milk: The caseins (one of the milk proteins) are stable to heat treatment. Typical high temperature short time (HTST) pasteurization conditions will not affect the functional and nutritional properties of the casein proteins. High temperature treatments can cause interactions between casein and whey proteins that affect the functional but not the nutritional properties. Hope this helps.

Is it safe to drink soy milk and pasteurized goats milk? I am 11 weeks pregnant.

Is it safe to drink soy milk and pasteurized goats milk? I am 11 weeks pregnant.

Only organic soy;but: Goat milk is perfectly safe. There are some concerns about soy because it has isoflavones that act like estrogens, but research suggests it's safe during pregnancy. But i advise not drinking much during the first trimester to be extra cautious ; i strongly advise avoiding milk made with gmo soy, which is almost all soy that is not labeled organic.

What is the best milk for a 1 year old? Have heard bad things about uht organc compared to regular pasturized non organic

What is the best milk for a 1 year old? Have heard bad things about uht organc compared to regular pasturized non organic

Regular is fine: Sensitive question. Official national dairy council position - uht organic milk just as safe as "regular" milk. Uht (ultra high temperature pasteurization) allows milk to be stable at room temperature for 6-9 months, but it changes the taste and smell and you can't make yogurt or kefir from it. Even if it's safe, if it won't grow microscopic life, is it really nutritious for kids? Not mine.

Is milk bad for adults?

Is milk bad for adults?

Not necessarily: If you can drink milk without problems, you can drink it. You may want to select low-/non-fat milk. If you have lactose intolerance like many of us, you may want to avoid it or drink either lactose- free or soy milk. There are varying degrees of lactose intolerance. As we get older we make less and less lactase, an enzyme that breaks down lactose in milk. Many adults get gas and bloating with mil.

Is milk healthy for adults?

Is milk healthy for adults?

Yes: Milk is healthy for children, as well as adults, as it is rich in calcium and vitamin d. There are different options from a fat content standpoint so adults have a choice between non-fat, 1%, 2% or full fat. Young children should only be given full fat milk as their developing brain needs the fat. Consult with your doctor if you have questions.
