Is raw milk better than fresh (pasteurised) milk?

You are here:

No. Milk is pasteurised (heat-treated) for a good reason – to kill harmful bacteria and keep milk fresh for longer. Raw milk has not been heat treated and may carry bacteria that can have health risks. Raw milk is not safe to drink and should be heated before use.
