Traditional Pasteurized vs. Ultra-Pasteurized
Do you know the difference? In the dairy case, all cream products are labeled either one or the other at the top of the carton. The difference is in how the cream is processed.
Ultra-pasteurized products are exposed to very high temperatures, which gives the cream a longer shelf life. But we believe there is a trade-off in quality and taste. In fact, some professional chefs say that ultra-pasteurized products are “un-milk like.” Not words we want to be associated with The Farmer’s Cow!
This is why The Famer’s Cow Heavy Cream and Half & Half are pasteurized in the traditional manner at just the right temperature, at least 161F for a minimum of 15 seconds. This is enough to kill any harmful bacteria and yet still allow the milk to retain more of its buttery texture, farm-fresh flavor, natural proteins and goodness.
Try it and taste the difference!
