Re: Cheap UHT milk/cream & Coffee

The flavor of milk...I know folks who swear one brand in the store tastes different from the next and I expect that's possible. Me, I have no interest in drinking it straight. I figure somewhere overseas there are calves starving, send it to them they need it more.

You might be on the money about different companies using different schemes for patent reasons. I'll just stick to my illegally-imported Klim for the baking.

Although I've found rice milk and soy milk both last an incredibly long time (2-3 months) after opening in the fridge. Beats all heck out of "ugh, the milk curdled".

Hardly milk-from-the-farm though is it? Rice and soy "milk" might be white, but IMHO that's the only thing they've got going for them... might just as well use water.

If you're worried about the expiry date, use evaporated or condensed milk - just don't leave it anywhere near the kids.

Trader Joe's has the little "juice box" sized containers. In chocolate or "neat". I usually have a few on board for the four-year-old Vice Admiral.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

Re: Cheap UHT milk/cream & Coffee

In my opinion UHT milk is not milk. The taste is different andyou cannot make yogurt from UHT milk. That means the yeast added to UHT milk does not "eat" it. If so, it is changed, chemically, biologically or physically. I do not consume UHT milk.

"Hardly milk-from-the-farm though is it?"
Ergh...And what's so good about milk from the farm? Soy milk or rice milk both have similar tastes and properties when used in baking and cooking. Not identical but similar and arguably better from some nutritional points of view.
Cow's milk? Well, most mammals lose the ability to truly digest it before one year of age. So you're drinking something your body is not designed to drink.
As to being water...mammary glands evolved from sweat glands, so yes, you are basically drinking cow sweat when you drink cow milk. Um um, yummy. And of course, you're depriving a calf of sustenance. And, cows have been so heavily bred over the years that if they're not milked regularly, they're in great pain from the "enhanced" udders.
I'd rather buy Blue Diamond (a growers co-op) Almond Milk. A tasty product, and only almonds are harmed in the process. best of the surrogates all around, IMO.

Re: Cheap UHT milk/cream & Coffee

I agree that cow's milk was designed by nature for baby cows. Fair enough to use as an ingredient, IMO, but not a great mode of sustenance to be consumed in bulk. There are some nutritional properties, such as calcium and protein. However, it is a primary mode of delivery for agricultural contaminants, such as pesticides and growth hormones. Ironically, most humans on the planet do not drink cow's milk, but it seems normal to cultures that feed it to their babies and have strong agri-business. I've read that humans can only tolerate cow's milk, because we are fed it as babies. Otherwise, if you tried for the first time in your 50s, you would not be able to digest it at all.

Re: Cheap UHT milk/cream & Coffee

I'm surprised no-one's mentioned coconut milk recently.

Not sure what that'd be like in coffee, but it could be a far better option for cruising in the tropics than any of the soy/rice/almond options mentioned thus far - since it comes conveniently packaged straight from the tree..

Re: Cheap UHT milk/cream & Coffee

Just check the expire dates at any discount stores (Dollar, Big Lots, etc.) I have found a lot of stuff very close to or even over the expiration date. Otherwise great deals!
