What's the Deal with: Sterilized Milk?

What's the Deal with: Sterilized Milk?

What is sterilized milk and should we all start filling our pantries with it?

Sterilized milk is homogenized milk heated to 300 degrees for several seconds. Sterilization destroys all germs, enabling the milk to be stored for long periods of time at room temperature.

The instructions to my milk frother machine claim that I should use sterilized milk because it is easier to digest. After some research I found that it does contain less lactose and protein, which could help with people who have issues digesting lactose. It is much darker in color and stronger in flavor (more caramel like) than average milk so beware. While I don't drink it regularly, I do keep some in the pantry (in my emergency coffee kit) because you don't want to see me without my cappuccino in the morning.

Fit's Tip: After opening it, sterilized milk should be stored in the refrigerator.
