    Super milk??

    Anyone out there know how expiration dates for perishable foods are calculated?

    I only ask because the wife and I went grocery shopping yesterday and I happened to pick up a quart of milk. Now, in my past experience, milk is usually dated for expiration ~ 10-14 days after purchase date. I’ve seen half-n-half dated up to a month beyond purchase. But I have NEVER seen milk with an expiration date 90 days out. But, as you can see below, the milk I bought yesterday (8-7-19) is dated to expire 12-2-19. Is there a new pasteurization process I don’t know about?

    The Declaration of Independence states that the sole purpose of government is to secure the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And, if it fails, the people are justified in getting rid of government, not the rights. - Judge Jeanine Pirro

    The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell

    Back when the unpleasantness in Southeast Asia was going on we would occasionally sail into the Indian Ocean to rattle our sabers. Since this was beyond our logistical pipeline we would run out of stuff like milk pretty quickly. The resupply ships couldn't bring it out because it would go bad before they got to us, and there was no local source that was reliable. So we had sterilized milk. It was in four ounce cartons and was shelf-stable, no refrigeration required. Most tried it once. The taste was ghastly, to put it politely. So we did with bug juice (Kool-Aid) and water. No cereal, and it was wise to avoid anything that had to be made with milk since the taste would convey.

    But yours? You might check the dairy's web site to see if they are touting a new pasteurization process. Look to see if there are other containers with similar lengthened dates. And ask the store folks if they have any idea.

    I bought some Almond milk once. I thought the wife might try it. She's lactose intolerant. Well, she never tried it, but I did. Turns out I'm Almond intolerant.

    We use nothing but Almond milk. Except sometimes for recipes like cornbread I'll buy cows milk. I like the Walmart almond milk rather than the Silk. It doesn't taste as...almondy? The whole almond milk thing is a holdover from our 3 month Vegan experience. We just never went back. But the dates on that stuff is always three months out.

    Never again for me. I drank about an 8 ounce glass of the stuff. Didn't taste too bad, but boy, it gave me a new appreciation for the term, "Montezuma's revenge".

    Up to a couple of years ago, when I was hauling eggs from the producers/collectors/mass marketers in Indiana and Ohio to the to the repackages/retailers here in PA, the invoices always had a mandatory stamp: "must have expiration dates for more than 66 days from date of invoice stamped on each egg" on that invoice.
    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.

    All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune
