You’ve headed out to the park and you stuck some milk in a sippy cup for your little one. You play outside for an hour or two, on a hot day, get back in the car, and head home. Your little one takes their milk out of the car, takes a drink, and ICK – spoiled milk! Don’t you just hate when that happens? Situations just like these are why there are benefits of shelf safe milk. Until recently, I had never heard of shelf safe milk, but when I did, I was very intrigued. This is Milk Unleashed!
Shelf safe milk is real milk with no additives or preservatives. No refrigeration is required until after opening. The thing about this milk is that you don’t have to purchase a whole gallon that you have to refrigerate after it is open. You can get pouches of milk, that are just the right size for a serving. This milk is Grade A wholesome, nutritious milk that you can have anytime, anywhere.
I will bet that many people don’t drink enough milk because they don’t want to have to worry about refrigerating it once they leave the house, or that it will spoil before they get a chance to drink it. This could be a mistake because milk is an important part of a healthy diet for people of all ages. This is something I often have to remind myself, as I am guilty of not drinking enough milk. Milk keeps your bones strong and is crucial for child development. I was shocked to see the nutrients that shelf safe milk contains. One carton of shelf safe milk has eight grams of protein and nine essential nutrients – calcium, A, D and B12, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, riboflavin, niacin and zinc. Wow!
Shelf safe milk has been around since 1960, so why am I not learning about it until now? Single serving packages are perfect for on-the-go, lunchboxes, diaper bags and purses. Pack your single serving of shelf safe milk in your lunch, and don’t worry about refrigerating it. Come lunchtime, your milk will be there for you. You can even try freezing a single serving package of milk, stick in your kids’ lunchbox, and come lunchtime, it will be just right. You can watch this video on shelf safe milk, to learn more.
