MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILK!

Just remember folks that 2 litres isn't quite as big as the usual 4pint bottles, but this is still a good price for some nice milk.

Do they do skimmed UHT like this?
#8
The only trouble with this is that it's not fresh milk - and it doesn't taste like it either. It's UHT milk, cleverly branded, but still UHT milk, with the distinct UHT taste that's nothing like fresh milk. That's why it lasts so long in the fridge.

It is fresh milk as the name suggests - "Fresh Filtered Milk". It's fine filtered to make it last longer as opposed to UHT which is heat treated.
I agree it doesn't taste as good as fresh milk but it's a lot better that UHT
#11
Sorry. But I don't buy into this marketing wheeze that is Cravendale milk.

Every other type of ordinary milk gets filtered/treated too, Cravendale just stick theirs through another final filter and suddenly theirs becomes "purer" and "full of goodness". Utter ****. And, judging from the use by date on the one & only bottle I bought it can last anything up to 3 weeks ... that rings alarm bells immediately. Where's the Union Jack on the bottle ? What country actually supplies the milk ? And why is it in white bottles you can't see through ? Because white=pure and we're daft enough to fall for it.

And doesn't it taste vile too ?

Nrvm. I'd vote it hot were it not for the fact it's invariably on offer somewhere else.

Why bother going to the trouble of putting your fingers to the keyboard and typing absolute drivel that you know nothing about?

This is not Ultra Heat Treated (UHT)!!!!!!
Poppycock Newbold.
The cream is separated off and heated to kill bacteria.
It is an homogenised product as is the majority of supermarket milk, goes through a centrifuge and mixes cream with the rest of the milk, hence you don't see cream settled on top of a 4 pinta plastic poly bottle.
Contrast this to a pint from your milkman if you still have one and you see a couple of inches on top of cream, especially Channel Island milk.(gold top).
Ask Milky for a pint of Homo and he should be able to produce a bottle with a RED top on.
I speak from experience as we were doing this in the Dairy trade way before the likes of ASDA and TESCO etc.
#15
i read on the side of a carton when i had this that the bottle was white ot prevent UV rays or something getting to the milk ? :)

It is not heat treated. It is finely filtered, more than ordinary milk. All milk is filtered, some more than others. Some put the raw milk through a clarifier which takes all the lumps of fat, blood and other **** that comes with raw milk, whereas others just put it through a cloth filter. Some dairies seperate the fat from the skim then re-blend to the standard fat content, and others just take the fat out until it reaches the correct fat content.

Cravendale is produced by Arla, a Scandanavian company, but I think Cravendale is produced in the UK. It lasts longer because there is less bacteria in the finished milk, however, once it is opened it should be treated like ordinary milk. I agree it should not be marketed as fresh milk though!

UHT is heat treated and can be stored at ambient temperatures (it doesn't need to be refrigerated) until it is opened when it should be treated like ordinary milk.

Anyone remember sterilised milk in the glass bottle with the metal cap? There is only one dairy in the UK producing it now (in Liverpool I think). Horrible in tea, but nice in coffee!

And look out for milk in plastic bags, which should be coming to a Sainsburys near you soon!

Go on then, I'll bite. Why should it not be marketed as fresh milk?

In taste tests with farmers who drink their milk BEFORE pasturization, they could not tell the difference.

Ask Milky for a pint of Homo


I don't know what sort of relationship you have with your milkman, but I'm not asking mine for a pint of homo :)

bearing in mind how much everyone is bleating about the cost of staple foods these days - I can't believe that when there's a chance to save almost a third on the cost of milk people have decided to let everyone know which type of milk they prefer the taste of...

...this is a money saving website, so the fact that this milk lasts for weeks means you can stock up on more of it and save more money. Fresh milk - which we Brits are bred to have a taste for so that we find that slightly rancid tang appealing, just as we enjoy that vegetable fat goodness of Cadburys chocolate - is currently significantly more expensive, percentage-wise, and does not last very long.

Fresh milk, filtered milk, UHT milk - they all pretty much taste like milk.

I hope you are not suggesting that cravendale is heat treated, because in my local Sainsbugs these containers are all located in the chillers, therefore must be 'fresh milk' with short shelf life.....:w00t:
#23
So....

Do they do this as totally skimmed UHT?
#24
cheaper at sainsburys
#25
oh my word, I don't believe milk has caused so much difference of opinion!

Well as a regular buyer of Cravendale, to a point where I shop less at Tescos as they kept selling out of it, I think it's the best thing since sliced bread.

I have a massive paranoia about drinking fresh milk ever since I drank off milk as a kid (it virtually fizzed on my tongue!). I open this stuff and even after 7 days I can smell it and it seems absolutely fine. I force myself to pour the remainder away just in case, and it is smooth as anything, with no curdling whatsoever.

Also for any households that don't turnover a great deal of milk this stuff is perfect.

As for taste...really people, can you tell the difference or is it all in the mind? I say do the blind test, I can't tell any difference between this and semi skimmed.

great price, voted hot.
#26
I have skimmed Cravendale and i can tell the difference between that and the non filtered!

I love cravendale! Just dont normally love the price!
