Buying milk in glass bottles wasn’t always a choice. It was the only way milk came to our houses. Farm fresh milk was delivered straight to our doorstep. Siblings fought over the cream on top. Then the empty jugs were returned and refilled. Then came along the milk carton, the milk jug, even milk in bags. Grocery stores became the primary place to buy milk. It seemed that the old and hygienic practice of getting milk in bottles had been replaced and there is no way to buy such fresh milk now particularly in cities like Guwahati.
But not so fast! The milk bottle is having a comeback! Why? You ask. Because milk in glass bottles is better! Both for you as well as the environment
Milk Bottles Contain Farm Fresh Milk
Often milk travels great distances before it gets processed into the final product. Unlike milk in glass bottles, which comes from local farms and can be from the cow to our table in as little as 12 hours. This quick turn around greatly increases the shelf life. Milk in glass bottles is left closer to its original state than milk in other packaging. Due to the less processed nature of the milk, more enzymes remain. This makes it easier to digest, and many people with milk intolerances can drink milk in glass bottles.
Milk Bottles Stay Colder
Glass bottles keep milk cold longer. Colder milk is tastier milk.
Milk Bottles Are Eco Friendly
A milk bottle can be reused as many times as it is returned provided they are washed and sterilized properly. When the glass bottles are returned after being used, it not only reduces waste going to our landfills but also helps to promote sustainable agriculture.
Aside from glass having an endless recycling life, glass is an ideal material for containing dairy and other food products. It extends food product shelf-life, preserves product quality and reduces food waste.
Unlike plastics, moisture is less likely to get in the container or bottle, keeping our food safe from mould or going stale faster than desired Plastic erodes over time which results in chemical leaching and altered taste. On the other hand, glass has to break to become contaminated physically. Glass better protects and conserves allowing consumers to enjoy their milk or other food products over a longer period of time and without worry.
Glass Bottles Make Milk Tastes Better
Glass bottles don’t transfer a foreign scent and taste into the milk, the way paper or plastic containers do. Drinking milk from glass bottles is the only way to get that delicious true milk taste. The tastier the milk, the more likely kids will drink it. Which is a win for parents everywhere.
