Fresh Milk Storage
- Keep milk refrigerated at 4°C in the original package
- The use-by date gives the expected shelf life (usually 10 days) when refrigerated at 4°C
- Milk containers should always be covered to prevent the milk from absorbing flavors or odors from other food
- Be aware that freezing milk can destabilize the main protein, casein, and the milk may appear slightly curdy when thawed
