So, what is pasteurized milk?

Pasteurized milk is a type of milk that has been heated to a specific temperature for a certain amount of time in order to destroy any harmful bacteria and increase its shelf life. This process was developed by French scientist Louis Pasteur in the 19th century and is now widely used in the dairy industry. Pasteurization allows milk to be safely consumed without the risk of contracting illnesses such as tuberculosis, brucellosis, and listeria. The heating process also helps to maintain the nutritional value of the milk while extending its freshness. Pasteurized milk is a common ingredient in many dairy products and is widely available in grocery stores.
