Fresh Breeze Organic uses a "low" temperature (145*F)
pasteurization process known as vat pasteurization to rid milk of bacteria. Vat pasteurization, also known as batch pasteurization, is one of several effective ways to pasteurize milk. The vat pasteurization process has been around since the late nineteenth century and was the earliest known processes to treat milk.
Vat pasteurization gently treats the milk while leaving essential and vital nutrients of the milk in tact.
In contrast, the quick process of high heat pasteurization
destroys pathogens as well as nutrients. Fresh Breeze Organic processes milk in small 200 gallon batches. The
low temperature process ensures that each batch of Fresh Breeze Organic milk is carefully and individually prepared.
The process is lengthy but the superior results as well as the safety of our products are worth the extra effort.
