Are your products pasteurized?
Yes, our organic dairy products start with milk that is pasteurized using the high temperature short pasteurization method at 170°F for 18 seconds. This method helps preserve the authentic flavor of the milk from the cows’ diet, as well as the milk’s nutritional integrity. Most milks are ultra-pasteurized to increase shelf life, which involves “cooking” the milk at a high temperature (at or above 280°F for at least two seconds); this can create “off” notes in the milk’s flavor. Straus milk is never ultra-pasteurized.
