Cow’s milk has become such a big part of our diet. We drink it for breakfast as well as incorporate it into our daily cooking. The goodness of milk is so widely known that many strive to drink a glass or two to ensure their daily calcium intake is fulfilled. Among the plethora of choices, UHT milk has a longer shelf life than others hence there is less need to stock up on a weekly basis.
