What you get
One serving of milk supplies nearly a third of the USDA recommended daily value of calcium and it is also rich in vitamin D, phosphorus, vitamin B12 and riboflavin.
- Shopping Tips
- Examine containers for leaks or other damage when shopping for dairy products and check the “sell by” dates before you buy.
- Make milk and other perishable foods the last items you pick up before leaving the store.
- In warm weather, put a cooler in your car to keep perishables cold between store and home.
- Look for “rbST”-free milk, produced without using the artificial growth hormone recombinant bovine somatotropin, or rbST, which boosts a cow’s milk production by about five quarts per day.
- Storage Tips
- While some people swear milk tastes better from pretty glass bottles, it’s best stored in opaque containers to help prevent milk’s riboflavin—an extremely light-sensitive B vitamin—from breaking down.
- Don’t keep milk on the door panel. Store milk in the coldest part of the refrigerator.
