Can you keep UHT Milk out of the fridge or do you have to store it like fresh milk?

Also does it taste like normal fresh milk?

You can keep UHT milk out of the fridge for as long as 8 or 9 months as long as its sealed. Once you open it though, its lifespan is the same as ordinary milk.

It supposed to taste a bit different, never tasted it myself though.

No, it lasts longer than ordinary milk when it's been opened, what would be the point if it didn't?
If I have it I keep it in the fridge when it's opened but I don't know whether you can keep it out of the fridge or not. I don't think it tastes much different but then I only use it for cereal.

I'd stay well clear of UHT. Its an impersonator. Don't put it in your fridge, don't have it with coffee or tea, just stay well clear is my advice

I have got a packet in front of me.
"Store un-opened in a cool dry place. Once opened, keep chilled and use within three days"

There you go!

No, three days, same as ordinary milk. The point is, it lasts longer UN-OPENED (mine is best before 15/09/10)

Nope - its only good for storing when its unopened. The UHT effectively kills all the bacteria in the milk and when its sealed its in a sterile environment were microbes can't break down the milk. However when opened, it is once again exposed to all manner of bacteria in the air etc... and the bacteria consuming the milk nutrients cause it to go off.... all of which happens as quick as with normal milk.

All the UHT does is sterilise the milk for sealing in a bacteria-free environment.

Well I would not touch ordinary milk three days after it's been opened, I think it tastes different the after one day I would rather not even have it then. But saying that I do not really like milk anyway so it's probably me being fussy.

Where I used to live (after our local dairy closed) we only had fresh milk available three times a week so I can assure you it's OK after three days.

When you only get fresh food three days a week, you just have to adjust!

Can you keep UHT Milk out of the fridge or do you have to store it like fresh milk?
Out of the fridge until you open it. The date 'before' stamps indicate that it can be kept many months thius way.

In the fridge once you have broken the seal. In my experience even after fully skimmed UHT milk has been opened it will keep for at least two weeks, and often three weeks, in the fridge. The life may be shortened if it contains more cream prior to treatment.

Also does it taste like normal fresh milk?
No it doesn't. However it's down to what you get used to. I only buy fully skimmed UHT so the difference between that and fully skimmed ordinary milk may be minor. The more fat, cream, the milk has may make a bigger difference to taste in the UHT process.

Have you considered what they are doing to "ordinary" milk these days? Once a upon a time the cream in the milk would rise to the top of the bottle and birds would peck through the tin foil to get at it. Where is this cream in full fat milk these days?

UHT milk does not taste like fresh milk at all. It's not too bad in coffee but not so good in tea

Mine has cream in it.

Lack of milkmen has lead to lack of blue tits milk stealing.
