After reading the previous thread on the shelf-life of pasteurized milk, I
started wondering what is the process that creates "ultra-pasteuized"
cream. If you buy it as half and half, it will last for weeks. The outdate
seems to be roughly four weeks after you see it in stores, so the process
must be knocking down the cfu count.
