Have you Heard? You Can Bring Milk With You! #MilkUnleashed

My children are BIG milk lovers and there are many mornings when I’ve had to explain why I don’t send milk along to school in their lunch boxes or to the beach for the day. Well that won’t be happening anymore because I have found shelf-safe milk with Milk Unleashed!

When I first heard about shelf-safe milk I was shocked, I couldn’t imagine it being safe but after doing a bit of research I have to say it’s impressive.

What Is Shelf-Safe Milk?

You may be wondering what this could be, is it an added chemical…or something strange? No, shelf-safe milk is plain old milk which has undergone an ultra-pasturization. This means that it is pasteurized at a temperature higher than normal and placed into the unique Tetra Pak container.  This eco-friendly packaging preserves all the wholesome goodness of milk and helps kids get the vitamins and nutrients of milk anytime, anywhere.

Milk-Unleashed-Logo-featureUp until now we’ve been stuck with using milk at home only. Milk Unleashed is a campaign from Tetra Pak which is educating us all on the benefits and availability of shelf-safe milk.

Imagine for a moment that you’re packing lunches for everyone…you reach into the freezer for that little carton of milk which will keep your child’s lunch cold all day and be ready to enjoy by lunch time. That to me is a HUGE benefit of this!

The Tetra Pak’s are recyclable, come in different sizes, flavours and can be stored in your pantry for six to nine months!!

Rarely do I become excited about a food staple but our family’s fridge usually has 2 packages of bagged milk in it at any one time. This is some serious real estate friends, I can’t wait to reach into my pantry storage instead!

Summary of Benefits:

  • Easily portable, freezable
  • Stored from 6-9 months in pantry (means freeing up fridge space)
  • Jammed with nutrients
  • Different sizes available
  • Different flavours available
  • Mom of the Year award pending….just sayin’

  1. Seen it, tried it, hated it!

    I am not sure WHAT it was about the taste – but it just didn’t taste ‘right’ to me! I probably WOULD keep the single serving containers at home for if I ran out and needed some for say baking purposes, but it won’t be a staple for me, unfortunately!

  2. I have some serious doubts about the nutrition part. I would like to see test results from someone other than the people making it. Pasteurization alone affects the nutrients in the milk…ultra pasteurization? I would consider it like water *if* I were sending it with my kids.

  3. I don’t think my grandson would drink this if I put it in his lunch. He likes it COLD straight from the refrigerator.
