– Why does regular milk (US) expire faster than it’s organic counterpart?

118 views

Today while looking through the dairy section of my local store, I noticed that the organic milk I bought expired at the end of May whereas the regular store brand milk had expiration dates within the next 2 weeks. I don’t think it’s just the store I go to either or my region because I have consistently noticed this at practically every grocery store I have been to it has been similar.

Organic milk is usually ultrapasturized and packaged in opaque paper cartons, which gives it a longer shelf life than regular pasteurized milk in plastic jugs. Not sure why all milk isn’t ultrapasturized though.

At my grocery stores, nearly every organic milk is UHT (ultra high temp) pasteurized, giving it a very long shelf life as long as it’s not opened
