UHT Milk?

Hi, can anyone tell me if UHT Milk (long life milk in liquid form instead of powdered) in litre sized (or there abouts) cartons are sold in US at places like Costco, Sam's Club - or anywhere else?

It's very easy to find here downunder and in Europe...don't recall seeing much of this in US.

Can anyone advise?

Cheers.

The stuff is readily available in the supermarkets. Just can be hard to find because for some reason they put it in strange places like with the baking goods. Expensive though. Powdered milk (the real stuff-not the "non dairy") is cheaper than regular milk and onlt takes a little getting used to. I haven't looked at costco but I would imagine they would have both...

Don't see them much in the US anymore, although I think there is still a place in Utah that ships by the case and probably some other sources. The Parmalat fiasco (see Google) seemed to cause problems. Haven't looked lately. They are everywhere in Mexico, though, cheap there, so that is where we buy them if needed.

Parmalat is available in most major food stores I've been in lately.

I've always found that Semi skimmed UHT is much more palatable than the full cream stuff.

Marc, UHT can taste a little different compared to fresh but I've found that after using it for a couple of days it quickly becomes 'normal'. On a longer passage, any milk is welcome

Parmalat is just vitriol; we had to dump it. Most other UHT has been very good, with the local brands in the Dominican Republic and Panama at the top and we almost prefer that to fresh milk.

cheers,
Nick.

I can and generally do get along just fine with no milk products at all, even though there are huge grocery storees all around me offering just about everything. I didn't recognize I had this little natural advantage until stumbling across this thread.

Hi Jim,

So, what came out of your mother's t*ts then; let me guess, bourbon? ;-) ha ha
Seriously, a lot of people consider milk to be healthy.

cheers,
Nick.

Dang, Nick - how'd you know my Mother was from Louisiana?

But seriously, I am really, really healthy in diet selection as well as exercise. It's a little scary, in fact, because when I do get to some future cardio health crux, and a doctor starts telling me to cut out fats and fried foods and too much beer; and tells me to take vitamins and supplements and so forth; I will have to say "Heck, Doc - I already do all that so I got no levers to pull to get more healthy!"

But milk, well for me - take it or leave it. And that's cool, cuz i don't have to worry about finding Parmalet in far flung places. In fact, I don't even know what it is. SO, I got that going for me.

Jim

All over South East Asia and the Far east

Ultra Heat Treated Milk. UHT

It is stored unrefrigerated indefinitely , It is not affected by high ambient temperatures - it comes in
small 250 ml (1 1/2 cups) containers

We have 3 models :-
#1 Plain Milk containing 3% percent butter fat
#2 Low Fat with 0.5% butterfat
and
3# Non Fat - 0% fat - no cholesterol

From a taste point of view - very little difference with Fresh milk.
Easy to store - good size - when empty can be flattened and disposed of by burning at sea.
