Over here in durka durka afghaistan we get a lot of our food shipments from out side of Asia for a lot of obvious reasons. I like milk and one of the products they bring is UHT (ultra high temperature) pasturized milk. It does not require refrigeration until opened. By the time this milk gets here it still has 7 months of shelf life left on the "best if used by date". UHT heats the milk to 280'F where the minimum legal requirement in NM for regular HTST milk is around 168'F. Powdered milk is made by injecting milk in a dryer chamber held at right about 400'F which I think is the reason why it tastes the way it does. The company that makes the milk sent over seas is called Gossner foods, Inc. They are in Logan Utah 84321. Its definitely better than rehydrated dried powdered milk. All I know is when I get back state side I am going to add some UHT milk to my stocks and rotate through it every few months. Looked up Gossner web site and you can buy from them, 27 cartons of 8 ounce milks, about 1-5/8 gallons for just under $9 plus whatever shipping runs. Quarts are about $10 for 3 gallons total I think to get me started I will just bring back a suitcase of milk cartons. For me, in NM shipping on one case is around $30 to $40. I would hate to see what the shipping to Afghanistan is. Might have to see if I like the Walmart UHT milk, its only $2qt, no shipping.
