Local, Organic (refundable $3 bottle deposit)
RICH AND DELICIOUS FOR YOUR MORNING COFFEE OR TEA.
Crafted with pure, simple ingredients, and minimally processed. No gums, thickeners, stabilizers, artificial ingredients, or coloring agents are ever used in Straus Creamery half & half.
Our organic half & half begins with premium organic milk and cream, blended to achieve 11% butterfat content.
Many half & half products are ultra-pasteurized to increase shelf life, which involves “cooking” the milk at high temperature (at or above 280°F for at least two seconds). These more heavily processed items forfeit flavor and nutritional integrity in their quest for a longer shelf life.
Never ultra-pasteurized. Straus Family Creamery Organic Half & Half is pasteurized at 170°F for 18 seconds and lightly homogenized to emulsify the milk and cream (to minimize separation). This process destroys harmful bacteria while still preserving the authentic flavor of the milk and cream.
You can taste the difference.
