Milk is one of the healthiest foods around. But it?s no simple matter keeping it pure and uncontaminated on the long journey from the milking barn to the kitchen table. All equipment used in milking and in processing and transporting milk must be kept sterilized and sealed to ensure the quality and safety of the product. Storage units like metal tins and drums, and drum cap seals are essential to preventing food borne diseases.
For thousands of years, since the domestication of cattle, humans have relied on milk for basic nutrition. It contains calcium, magnesium, selenium, riboflavin, vitamin B12 and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), all of which are necessary for human growth and development. It also contains essential minerals like iron and vitamin D.
