Advantages Cheap and stores for a long time
Disadvantages short shelf life once opened
Although I tend to use semi- skimmed milk on a daily basis, I often find (courtesy of the kids) the empty milk carton in the fridge with no back up.
Most of the time this isn't a problem ,but first thing in the morning in the mad school rush going to the shop for more is not an option,so what's a girl supposed to do?
Enter, tescos U.H.T(Ultra heat treated) skimmed milk!!!
Looking at the carton I observed a good sell by date of at least 1 year, the price was very reasonable so I bought a carton.Getting round to trying it out didn't take too long and i found within a month I needed to call on my "emergency supplies".
Upon placing the carton in the fridge for later use I did however notice the shelf life once opened was a mere three days.Fresh milk usually has a shelf life of five to ten days so if you don't use much milk each day you would have to be careful not to leave it hanging around after the three days especially as it is harder to tell that skimmed milk is "turning" (going off) than milk with higher fat contents. I have to take particular notice of such facts as I have a very poor sense of smell and that is usually the first tell tale sign that milks been hanging around too long.

I also noted that the packaging gives no hint as to it having been made from recycled material, being cardboard I think that responsible outlets should now be trying to use recycled packaging.
