Why you should drink pasteurized milk!

That’s why you should drink pasteurized milk!

Milk and dairy products provide important nutritional value for your health, but unpasteurized milk contains microorganisms that can endanger your health and that of your family. According to an analysis by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), between 1993 and 2006 more than 1,500 people became ill after consuming unpasteurized milk.

Unpasteurized milk can have dangerous bacteria like salmonella, e. coli, and listeria, which cause dangerous diseases. These bacteria are dangerous for everyone, but especially for people with weaker immunity such as pregnant women, children, adolescents and the elderly.

What is pasteurization?

The pasteurization process kills harmful bacteria by heating the milk to a certain temperature for a certain amount of time. Pasteurization comes from the name of the inventor of the process, Louis Pasteur in 1864 and is a process which kills the organisms responsible for diseases such as tuberculosis, diphtheria, listeriosis, typhoid, brucellosis, etc. Scientific research has found that there is no significant difference between pasteurized milk and unpasteurized milk in nutritional values. Pasteurized milk keeps low levels of non-pathogenic bacteria which cause milk spoilage so it is important to put pasteurized milk in the refrigerator.


The truth about pasteurization:

The pasteurization process has provided the world with nutritious and healthy milk for 120 years, but many people continue to believe that unpasteurized fresh milk, instead of packaged pasteurized milk, is healthier. Pasteurized milk is the best alternative because:

The pasteurization process does not create allergies. People who are allergic to milk have allergies to both pasteurized and unpasteurized milk. Harmful bacteria in freshly milked milk do not die on their own without pasteurization. Only pasteurization kills them.
