What About UHT Milk?
You might have seen UHT milk in boxes in regular aisles. This milk has been heated to higher temperatures than the milk you need to refrigerate, which kills almost all of the bacteria that can contaminate it. That means it can be stored for months at room temperature as long as it goes unopened. Once you open it, it needs to be refrigerated. It’s handy to have for those days your milk runs out.
