Anything dairy-related

Can I freeze raw milk?

Hi, Milk Fans

Yes, raw milk can be frozen, but make sure that you do so as soon as possible after the milk is cooled down after the milking.

If the milk is held for a few days before being frozen, psychrotrophic (Cold-loving/tolerant) bacteria will start to grow and might even deteriorate the milk while it is frozen.

Kind regards,
