(HealthDay News) -- Pasteurization is the process of heating milk and other dairy products to kill harmful bacteria.

The foodsafety.gov website offers these facts about pasteurization:

  • It's necessary because there could be dangerous germs in raw milk.
  • Pasteurization does not affect allergies to dairy products.
  • Pasteurized milk is no less nutritious than raw milk.
  • Even if pasteurized, milk should never be left unrefrigerated for an extended period.
