This is the only milk I drink now, not only does it seem to taste better but itll be nice for your pocket as the milk seems to last agesssss once opened whilst other own branded ones go sour quite quick. Last one lasted well over a month and a half.

Must be the filtering thing they do.

SIX WEEKS??!! Jesus wept, its knackered after at best six DAYS! You'd have to be out of your freakin' mind to use milk weeks after you'd bought it
#2
I like this milk as a refreshing drink on it's own,
But admit it makes my tea taste a bit strange.

A month & a half?! :w00t:

:lol:

Yeah, I thought it had to be used within 7 days. I'm funny with milk & chuck it after 2 days, cravendale or not!
#4
I keep my cravendale for ages as well..its got a much longer shelf life than most 'normal' milk. Like the OP says must be to do with the filtration taking out more bacteria
#5
Just got some today...normally lasts us about 3-4 weeks and it stays good to the last drop. We use the semi-skimmed for tea and the whole milk to make yogurt and both taste excellent.

And they have weird ads. !
#6
Totally agree on shelf life and taste. It just taste good, but its the only one we drink now. Funny how filtering process makes taste better etc.
#7
good news as we only seem to drink this now,thanks for the post,

Hey, if it tastes OK it's probably fine. My record is only two weeks :oops:

I just don't get the "filtered, to make it purer" tag.
Surely, if something is natural, you can't make it more pure?

To me, this comes across as Coke's 'Dasani'. But, each to their own.

I'll probably pick some up tomorrow, just to see what the hoo-ha is all about.

Well it's milk sans more of the bacteria so it kinda makes sense. That Dasani business didn't make any sense what-so-ever because it was tap water which was filtered to remove the minerals after which Coke's "special blend" of minerals was added to it again! Bizarre!

Cravendale isn't that big a whoop but it *does* last for ages and some people prefer the taste.
#12
Milk does contain a lot of good bacterial enzymes so the more you "purify" it the less nutrients you get out of the milk. Does anyone that is lactose-intolerant drink this stuff? I'm guessing NOT lol.

Soya milk > Cravendale Milk :P
#13
ive been drinking this for last few years - on offer or not. but is great when it is on offer, does last for ages and i'd rather this in my tea and on my weetabix - i have skimmed!!
#14

I agree this milk is great.

My usage fluctuates depending on if i have time for breakfast cereal or not and the amount of times my girlfriend drops round.

Buying a 500ml normal milk usually means I run out very now and then
Buying a 1 litre normal milk usually means it goes off.
I never win.

But with this stuff it stays okay for 7 days.
So i buy a 1 litre which saves wastage and me some money.

Blimey , 6 weeks , how much milk do you drink , a thimble full a day ? I work in the milk industry , it"s all about the extra filtration , as mentioned , removing more bacteria to keep it fresh longer.
Even fresh milk normally has a use by date of 7 days from being delivered to the shops , however , once you break the seal it lets bacteria in the air in which starts the process of turning the milk sour .Thats why they say consume within 2-3 days of opening though in most cases fresh milk will be fine for 7 days once opened , if store at the correct temperature .The milk industry covers itself , like all food manufacturers by putting shorter use by dates than needed so they dont get hauled up for products going off when they are still within their use by date .

Lol it lasts longer becuase it's heat treated - filtered my **** lmao, one born every minute. UHT anyone ?

Well, yeah.

The other thing I don't understand is that "normal" milk is pasturised to kill the bacteria, so why does it go off and cravendale doesn't??

Anyhoo, I personally think unpasturised milk tastes better than the whole lot, although I think it's illegal to sell it now.

Sorry tef, it's not UHT - I think the Dairy Council know about this, so stop talking out your **** ;-)

Filtered milks

Filtered milk goes through an extra, fine filtration system, which prevents souring bacteria from passing through.

The nutritional content of the milk is unaffected but the shelf life is increased.

The processes involved include, microfiltration, ultrafiltration and nanofiltration.

Microfiltration is the most commonly used process and is a pressure-activated separation process which uses a membrane that is permeable to substances with a low molecular weight but rejects material with a high molecular weight.

In the process of microfiltration of skimmed milk, bacteria are removed using ceramic filters with 1.4 micrometer holes to separate the milk from the bacteria. After this process, virtually all the bacteria present in the milk are removed.

The milk is then homogenised to standardise and evenly distribute the fat molecules, where it then undergoes the pasteurisation process before being chilled down quickly to 5ºC or less.

Microfiltration adds an extra level of cleanness which can extend shelf life up to 45 days when stored at temperatures of up to 7ºC and an average 7 days once opened.

Filtered milk is available in whole, semi skimmed or skimmed milk varieties.

It's only illegal to sell "raw" milk in Scotland - you can still buy it direct from farms in England

I can tolerate a little too. Never tried goats milk before. MUST TRY IT! I've grown to like soya but lacto-free might be worth a try. Yay for no lactase in our GI tract. : )

not yet been confirmed but my son might be lactose intollerent but only slightly (if thats possible!) he gets problems, stomach paind bad upset tummy if he has too much milk, yogurt etc. but if we are careful he doesnt overdo it he is OK, would this be better for him or not make any difference? he loves milk

When we stayed on a farm as kids the farmers wife use to bring us a jug for breakfast, straight from the cow, still warm!

I only suffer if i have too much, tummy pains and toilet problems. Lacto free milk is quite nice, its just with the normal milk in the supermarkets and about £1.30 a litre i think http://www.lactofree.co.uk

You can't keep milk for 6 weeks!...... :shock:

..........unless ya freeze it :roll:

I thought the filtering was more about removing pus cells (yes, there is a certain amount allowed in milk) than bacteria. Apparently many dairy cows are chronically infected with mastitis, hence the pus.
#30
This milk is meant to be treated like normal FRESH milk once the bottle is opened. I work in the milk industry :thumbsup: It is not heat treated, so its not UHT, or sterilised milk (remember that - my nan loved the stuff). We filter our ordinary milk - gets rid of the lumps of fat and other ****.

Cravendale is good stuff, but when it goes off, it really goes off, usually because they haven't cleaned the filters (puts bacteria back in the milk)! We used to have lots of complaints about it not lasting, but probably from people who think it should last to its best-before date a month after its been opened.

Anyway, you should support your local milkman. You can order this stuff from him too you know! Pay a bit more for it though.

Good stuff. Oddly I found that their full cream milk tasted like gold top and their semi skimmed tasted like full cream. Not tried the skimmed because I was never a fan of semi-skimmed in the first place. ;)
