Not all milk is created equal and Trader Joe’s Ultra-Filtered Milk is some of the best you can get.
In the U.S., milk is generally pasteurized, for food safety. However, in recent years, the process of ultra-filtration has also become popular. Ultra-filtering involves filtering the milk with a membrane so fine, which removes the lactose, as well as some of the naturally occurring sugars. This leaves behind milk that is extra creamy and higher in protein and calcium.
Joe’s Ultra-Filtered Milk relies on this filtering process to produce an ultra-smooth, ultra-creamy 2% milk. The drink is not only certified lactose-free, but it is also made using milk from cows not treated with rBST. Best of all, each glass contains a whopping 14 grams of protein, making it the perfect base for protein smoothies.
